I shot my mother!  
I thought she was a deer! Oh, dear.

You don't even want to know what I'm doing. But I'll tell you anyway... I am painting with a sundry combination of orange and diet soda, peach tea, coffee, and Tang. Painting with it. I call it "Self-portrait in beverages." It's very sticky. And stupid looking. And I'm about to throw in the towel here (metaphorically speaking) since it really is disgusting. Also, I broke my Muraki wineglass and that makes me sad. I guess I'll have to go back to the dollar store someday and get another one.

New icon inspired by conversation last night about being... well... a little orange kitten. Coppery-red hair, green-eyes, roly-poly and cuddly when sleepy, pointy when playful, skittish, clumsy, sort of stupid and impulsive. The comparisons can kinda go on and on. Except when I'm angry and a "spitting cobra."

I miss Lew. I sometimes feel like I'm being smothering and clingy, but I do miss him. I wish December would just hurry up and be here.

And now I'm just feeling vaguely lonely and sad and unhappy. My roommate relocated, so the room is very bare, and Eden went home sick. I'm also scared for my rattie... room inspections are tomorrow. Other people hide drugs and alcohol... I hide a rat. I'm a big dork, and I love him. I gave him chicken and Swedish fish tonight just in case anything happens tomorrow. My baby.

The poor rat...I hope you shall be able to smuggle him successfully. Me, I plan to smuggle my Lionel into art school with me. I'm going to put him down my shirt and say he's a livid writhing tumor and, when asked where the tumor went next day, I shall say, "I sliced him off--would you like to see the gaping mass of infected tissue that now lives there?" and hopefully no one will ever bother me and him again.

That has to be one of the cutest tumors I've ever, ever seen.
Seriously, I used to tell people Matty Ratty was a "Filigree Siberian Hamster" - no one ever got the joke. This one woman was cooing over him, petting him, and asking where I got him. I had a spasm of honesty and told her he was actually just a rat. She freaked out, it was great.

I feel like an idiot, because I don't get the "Filigree Siberian Hamster" bit. Then again, I'm pretty damn slow. *snerk*

As for Lionel...my mum and I have been rehabbing all sorts of rodents since I've been in the fourth grade, so my house (and subsequent room) is full of fox squirrels, grey squirrels, flying squirrels, and there used to be a fifty gallon tank with rats in it. My dad, however, let my poor ratties go. Damn man. But since Texas decreed a few months ago that keeping non-releasable squirrels such as Lionel is no longer illegal, I can keep him for the rest of his life! Before the law was passed, rehabbers were instructed to put down non-releasable wildlife which is absolute bullshit. So I just smuggled him in my room.

But Lionel's a sweetie. He quite seriously has no clue he's a squirrel. He thinks he's people because when he was little, he was always riding around places on my head, on my shoulders, on my back, or, if he got lazy, down my shirt. He's a good boy. Likes popcicles. Need to get a picture of that.

Ehh, really we're the idiots... not only is it semi-obscure, it's also a bad joke. :P But the whole "Filigree Siberian Hamster" thing comes from the short-lived British tv show "Fawlty Towers" which starred John Cleese as the owner of a hotel. In one episode, he finds his Spanish waiter/host/handyman Manuel has been keeping a rat as a pet. Manuel, however, says that the man at the petshop said it was a "Filigree Siberian Hamster." But of course it is just a little rattie... mayhem ensues. Ringing any bells?

And, I have to agree... that is one heck of a cute tumor. I love squirrels...

...it rings no bells and yet I used to watch "Fawlty Towers" obsessively. Damn brain...

I have no idea who you are, but you listen to ani defranco and eat sweedish fish you so automatically get like 20 billion awesomeness points.

I'm always surprised at what odd combinations get me awesomeness points...

Hurry up, December! You really like him.. aw! It makes me smile.

Not that you yourself are a spitting cobra . . . that talking to you is like trying to juggle a handful of spitting cobras. There is a slight difference *grin* Actually, when you're in that mood I picture you more like Bucky (and I'm Satch, 'member . . . "Where's Smacky?" "Is that a riddle? Please don't smack me.")
Awwwwww . . . kitty, kitty, kitty!
I wanna cuddle it and press it's little paws to watch the claws pop out and er, I think I need to go take a cold shower, now.
