Friday text-only cat-blogging

I finally sat down and watched Shrek 2, and while it was (in the manner of the Austin Powers sequels) more polished than the original, it was also much more contrived and gratuitous than the originall. However, the moment when Princess Fiona, after having been magically transformed to her human shape, meets Donkey and Puss in Boots in the woods, was so undexpected and so real I nearly cracked a rib laughing. The image of Puss (played to perfection by Antonio Banderas) sitting on a log with his back to the camera, purring like an Evinrude while he absorbedly licks his crotch, is a wonderful commentary on what tomcats really are like.

"For you, baby, I could be," indeed.
