WELCOME TO JUNE PROJECT!

i know, i knooow i just did a querkles book for march project, and it is very disappointing to have another one so soon on its heels, but best laid plans &yadda – i was going to do another cooking project this month, but BEA fell right at the month’s end and i needed to recover a bit, and starting a new project a couple of days into the month felt like it would be doing a disservice to any cookbook, so i finished up my PEEPS® project for the beginning of the month, knowing that this querkles book only had 20 querkles in it, and i could start it on the 10th, see out the month, and start a cookbook project fresh for july. plus, this one is ALL CATS, so that means THERE WILL BE NO BIRDS IN IT! and that’s as good a reason as any to do it. so, apologies if you are all querkled out, but this will be the last querkle project i EVER do, unless they come out with better options than Querkles: Icons and Querkles: Masterpieces because zzzzzz.

o, and this time, i have taken photographs of all the querkles BEFORE starting, so i don’t accidentally forget to photograph one in the nude before coloring all over it and then feel foolish. sometimes i learn from mistakes. sometimes.

without further ado, i give you Querkles: Cats

i am just now realizing how boring the commentary on these is going to be. there will be zero suspense because they will all be cats, and it will probably just become me muttering like a crazy cat lady, “look at the kitty. pretty kitty.” apologies in advance.

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

of course, any suggestions about how YOU would like the commentary to play out would be welcome. i could dig up cat facts n trivia, or name the cats, or find famous cat-related quotes.

GUIDE ME, BOOKNERDS OF THE INTERNET!!

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE ALSO USED THIS BOOK AS A PROJECT AAAAAAAHHHHH!! I FEEL SEEN!! BY PEOPLE WITH BETTER CAMERAS THAN ME!

OKAY, I HAVE DECIDED! for each day’s querkle, i will use that little right-click dropdown to request that GOOGLE find me a ‘visually similar image.’ although not necessarily cat-related, i think it may lead to some interesting and unexpected results. i’m not sure yet if i am going to choose the first match or the one that amuses me the most – life is so full of decisions! i will go back now and fill in the first two! fingers crossed for fun!

okay, i promise this is the last time i will googlematch a querkle with a querkle, but this one’s just too weird not to share.

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

querkles don’t tell you what color to color them, the only rule is the light-to-dark shade or intensity of the color. and yet someone else, right here on goodreads chose the SAME COLORS as me. someone else said HEY, CATS ARE BLUE, RIGHT?

but because it’s lame to say “a querkle looks like a querkle,” here are some bonus matches.

google says THESE ARE visually similar matches:

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

google apparently thinks this querkle is terrifying, as additional matches make clear:

but then, out of nowhere, something not even a little terrifying but very close to my heart

JUNE 18

despite accurately identifying this image as a “kitten,” the very first match—excuse me—gotta stay consistent—google says THIS is a visually similar match:

and it isn’t until image #68 that we see a feline “match”

and now for your daily dose of terror:

JUNE 19 THIS ONE IS GIANT CENTERFOLD CAT

because this one is a HUGE 2-pager, i’m going to honor its majesty and set it apart from the others by using the googler to find me a fancy-schmancy ANIMATED lookalike. prepare for MOTION!

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

might as well make it two, one for each page of querkle.

google says THIS IS ALSO a visually similar match:

sorry, i took a few days off querkling because sometimes life doesn’t care that you’re already sad and it’ll just keep kicking the shit out of you. but look i’m back and here are more querkles!

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

google identifies my querkle as a “sheep,” and yet its first visual match is a cat. or, as it itself is identified, “green lion consumes the sun” which sounds very formal indeed.

here are some others. this one is a sheep. or at least closer to a sheep than a cat is.

and these are just fun

google says THIS is a visually similar match:

oh no! the only matches are querkles! but not all cat querkles. one of these things is not like the other. IDENTIFY IT!

i will try not to succumb to the glooms for the remainder of the month. i know how important querkle-reveals are to you people…

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
