Our fun fur friends, Kellie, Yao-Lin and Miss Peach, all tagged us for the screenshot of desktop meme.
At first we did not think we could do it since we are on a Mac, but this morning we googled it and found this:
Taking Screenshots with Screen Capture in Mac OS X Panther
Adapted From: Mac OS X Panther Timesaving Techniques For Dummies
So we followed the directions and got this:
That is our desktop image, but none of our folders would show up. (Update: This, too, is a generic Mac desktop image that comes loaded on the laptop. But thanks so much for thinking Mosaic Lady is talented enough to somehow be responsible for doing anything other than selecting it and clicking.)
But that's OK...they are almost all folders of photos of us in various stages of blog-readiness. And some mosaic photos, and lots more photos of us. We don't have a very interesting desktop. Mosaic Lady is very easily over-stimulated by sounds and sights and bright lights, chaos, strong odors (like POO puddles from Smudge, for instance), etc, etc. A very simple and almost mono-chromatic desktop works best for her sensitive nervous system. Green is her favorite color, and this is an especially peaceful and calming shade, so we use this one the most. (She's very annoying and bitchy when she's over-stimulated. "Brittle", comes to mind. Trust us.)
Here is Sepia Sadie. We used this on the desktop for a long time on our old iBook (RIP). We knew Victor would enjoy seeing his special friend when she was tiny and floofy and
Right now our screen saver is Nature Patterns, a standard option on our Mac. We like that one a lot. Sometimes we do a slide show of all of our photos, but that gets on Mosaic Lady's nerves if we do it too much. Almost everything gets on her nerves if we do it too much.
It's sort of a stressful week around here for a few reasons so we are not feeling very chipper or creative today. In addition, we learned from Molly that our NOMSS Friend, the well-accessorized guinea pig, Gingerbread, was helped along to the bridge by her family earlier this week. If you feel so inclined, please stop by Molly's blog and express your sympathy.
