Spock's tales

Spock’s mischiefs

Today we saw a comment on Facebook saying that Guinea Pigs are small creatures that can’t be blamed for mischiefs, like a rabbit for example. So, I’ve decided to tell you some stories about me and how “nice” I behave towards my humans.

In our old apartment and before sharing my room with Data, I used to get a lot of floor time in the living room. And our living room was a huge space of approximately 40sm filled with interesting things to chew. Of course, the humans realized this too late. 😀

Last year in August we moved. The hm was packing his surround system, pulling a speaker and its cable from the bookshelf. At some point he rolls up his eyes and shouts Evrika! The hf comes quickly to check if he discovered a new America. But no! It was just the realization of the fact that one speaker was not functioning because someone chewed its cable. Let’s not say who that someone was…

One evening the hm calls the hf while she was heading home. He says: “Come home! I’ll kick yours and Spock’s backs!”. She says calmly (with a grin on her face): oh, he ate your headset! Of course I did! I mean they left the headset on the couch, unsupervised. So there was a tasty cable under my nose and I just couldn’t let it pass. And I picked the most complicated place to chew, where all the cables connected, so a reparation was out of question. Oh, I forgot to mention they were quite expensive ones. 😀

Next, the printer used to be on the floor and the paper tray was opened at the back. At some point the hm prints a boarding pass and is astonished by the nice bordure that the paper has on one end. Then he realizes it was me again who did that nice pattern.

But the most crazy thing I used to do was claiming my couch. So, the humans have a couch that can be split in two. One particular side of it was always close to my room and I always had the opportunity to get out and take a walk on it. So I’ve kinda got used with the fact that it was mine. Just the hf got to sit on it and I was used seeing her there when at home. Last summer she left for one week and the hm moved on that side of the couch because it was more comfortable to watch the football games. I’d got so upset that I used to go out and shout at him. I gave up only when he moved back on his side of the couch.

Although I share my life with Data now and I spend less time on the couch, I still claim it as mine. If we have guests that occupy it for more than few nights, I get out and spy on them hopping that my red eyes will scare them and make them leave.

The secret to get clear with all this is to look as innocent as possible.

Worf and the laptop

From time to time I get to spend some time on the couch while the human female changes the bedding in my room. Usually I just freeze: although she is busy with my pen, I still fear she can turn and eat me. But recently I’ve told myself to give it a try and explore the couch a little bit.

Usually the couch is not a very interesting place to be on… I mean what can you find there?! A pillow… But, sometimes, the human male abandons his laptop with the lap support. And last time it was there. We already told you that we prefer the human female’s laptop, but this one looked interesting also. At least an attempt to communicate with it was necessary.

Now, a human would think that in order to communicate with a device, the last one must be turned on and opened. But we, the superior living beings in the house, know that this is not really the case. One can communicate with a machine easily using his or her brain. Isn’t it?! I mean, just look at me!

OK, I know, I’m not fooling anyone: I was just hiding around and exploring the tunnel. The laptop was very stubborn and refused to talk to me. Even though I’ve took it on my back and walked with threatening to throw it from the couch…

What do you do for fun?

Kirk's tales

Competing again

If someone thinks beauty and intelligence are rarely to be found together in a living being, let me tell you that I am one of those rare beings. I am beautiful and the numerous likes I get when participating in contest prove this. On the other hand, being such a fine psychoanalyst requires intelligence, so I have plenty of that also.

As the world we live in tends to be shallow, I focus my career on my beauty and I would really like to become famous for this. Then I could change the world with my intelligence… I know I am not blue blood so I have no chance in the very exclusivist competitions, but anyhow my target is not the few that are the public for this. I want to speak to the many!

My next goal is to have my face in a calendar at the end of 2014. Actually this became my goal after Spock informed me about the opportunity. He is somehow the brain behind all our campaigns… So, I’ve asked Data to put my picture for the contest. Now I just have to gather as many likes as possible.

In the meanwhile, I’ve been busy exploring the couch. First, dig in & dig out from the blanket…

kirk_buttSo, do I deserve or not to be in that calendar?
