Christmas ain’t over yet, kids

Brandon and I exchanged gifts last night when he got back from his week in Knoxville. I got Rock Band, which is what I told everyone who would listen all week I had hoped was in that giant box. I am already looking at the track list on Rock Band 2. Thanks Brandon, that is the best Christmas gift of the year!

I also bought myself something for Christmas right before Brandon got back last night…

This was taken on Brandon’s phone, but in that corner are two tiny mice.

Me and mice, we got a history. Ever since I "rescued" two feeder mice from a former housemate’s pet snake, I have had an affinity for the critters. My mom was baffled when I came home that summer with them in a glass tank. She laughed her head off, however, when they ended up having a litter of nine, after I’d sworn up and down they were both female.

These two new ones really are female, as the pet shop divides them into cages by gender to avoid the very thing that happened to me. I am now taking suggestions for names. One is white with brown spots, and the other is all white with red eyes.

It was either these ladies or a golden retriever. I spent a really long time watching them yesterday evening.


One thought on “Christmas ain’t over yet, kids

  1. How about Miss Phipps and Panama? I love mice, they are so cute. I can’t even kill them if they come in the house and eat everyhing up. I am too soft-hearted. I figured out how to catch them in a big plastic container and then turn them loose in the field next to our house. I am sure they turn around and come right back into where it is warm, only to be caught in the big plastic box and turned out in the field next door, only to come back into the house to be caught in a big plastic box, etc…..
