EEEEEK!

| | Comments (6)

I've learned a few things during this long weekend.

During tonight's rehearsal, I made the upleasant discovery that a mouse has taken up residence in the threatre. I learned that threatre mice can get really aggressive and confident, especially if you happen to be the one standing between them and the confectionary counter.

I've also learned that I will NEVER WEAR SANDALS TO REHEARSAL EVER AGAIN.

Ever.

Eeeek!

I've also learned that when you happen to find yourself in a karaoke joint (by accident, of course) you should NEVER, EVER make eye-contact with the bad Elvis impersonator, or you might just find yourself being intimately (and badly) serenaded.

Whadda weekend.

Finding yourself in a karaoke bar is quite like wreaking your car, if your smat, it only happens by accident.

best karaoke bar experience ever - condensed version - me and the missus with some complete strangers in Thailand who were members of this lesbian group we'd found on the internet (just friends, just friends) and wondering if we'd gotten ourselves into something stupid but then one of them gets up to sing ... "First I was aflaid, I was petlflied..."

Hi there, first time commenter here.

Aggressive mice are the worst! Apartment mice can be aggressive too. I wish my apartment mice would get a little more, uh, passive and shy. Then maybe they'd stay behind the stove where I don't have to see them. And refrain from boldly running around the kitchen as if they owned the place. Which they practically do by now.

Insert frustrated, angry-at-own-inability-to-control-pests sigh here.

I also have had the bad mice experience as in being awakened at 3:00 a.m. with a mouse trying to come through the radiator screen in our NYC apartment. I caught him in some tupperware. Worse than that, though, was living three blocks from the Mississippi River in New Orleans: Rats. Big ones! In the garden.

I think the Elvis impersonator is far more offensive than the mouse. How did you get through that? Liquor? Lots and lots of liquor?

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
