I pulled this from the original about page of the first incarnation of MeowSplash. It was my first personally host WordPress site. (Thanks Willis Lambert) I set it up in my brothers study and just thought I would be a jerk about the world and capture my general snark. It’s not serving that purpose anymore (that’s what this blog is for)
So without further ado – from December 17th, 2008.
Meow Splash? WTF is meowsplash? Iḿ still trying to figure it out but I know where it comes from. Meowsplash is a term that I came up with when yelling at a whiny co-worker who was complaining about having to spend $5,000 to save his cat. My thought was was ¨Fuck! That is a hell of a lot of cash to save and old cat.” He of course said ¨You don´t know my cat – heś awesome”
I have a problem with that. Your cat isn´t $5,000 awesome. Shit IḾ not $5,000 awesome. I blew a gasket and said for $100k you can get a herd of cats an find and new awesome one! I may have in the middle of the rant mentioned that we could throw the old one in theGowanus Canal and go ¨MeowSplash” Someone picked up on the term ¨meow-splash¨ and itś been a legend ever since.
Meowsplash.com is the FIRST UR: I have ever purchased and I am damn proud of it.Oh right, the about should be about me. My hope is that youĺl figure it out as you move through some of the posts.
