The Problem with LCD Monitors

When I had a monitor the size and weight of a 747, Dot sat on top of it, and all was well. After my new Dell flat-panel 1901 monitor arrived–and it is absolutely gorgeous and crystal-clear–Dot prowled around my desk for a week, no doubt waiting for me to restore “her” monitor. She finally gave up, but I now have a little problem printing and copying, particularly when she leans on the feed tray (which causes it to fall out). I get attitude when I try to lift the lid to make a copy by hand, and she occasionally leans over to bite paper as it emerges the printer.

There’s no moral to this story. Dot is a cat. She sits where she wants, and she’s beyond morality. Emma, the other cat, sleeps on the couch, and I doubt I’ll exchange it for a two-dimensional version any time soon…
