Potpourri...  
I haven't posted in 5 days, so here's a link to The Five Most Badass Presidents of All Time.

And here's a link to where I'm spending my next Saturday...

That is all. We return you to your regularly scheduled intarwubs.
 
 
Current Mood: weirdweird
Current Music: Some opera... I can't tell what they're saying...

Warning, do not bring ANY money with you. The cute little whiskered faces with seduce you into taking one or more home. Especially the babies and teenagers.

Possibly. There's probably a very deep emotional reason I haven't gotten rid of my cage. I'm not going alone, though, so hopefully Martin will talk sense into me.

I AM planning on bringing money, though, since I lost my rat earrings. I want a nice quality set of rat jewelry.

Did you see there's a costume contest? People putting little outfits on rats! About the only way this could be more Me is if they were handing out free wine and cheese.

OMG I was distracted by the whole quarantine instructions. Rats in costumes! Wish I could go! But I am even more allergic to rats than I am to cats.

In the past I had rats and I found that even if I sprayed the cage with straight bleach and let it sit for years that any new rats put in that cage would get a respiratory infection. I don't know if this is because I was buying them from a pet store that sold "feeders" and they just were not healthy or if it was that the infection somehow lingered.

I would recommend, new rat = new cage. There that should stop you and it is the truth......

I love the little ratties but they have such short lives, and so many bad things at the end.....

The show sounds like a blast though.

Me, too. The biggest reason I don't have any. I've already reminded Martin not to let me leave the house Saturday unless I have anti-itch cream with me.

And MOST rats carry respiratory infections. ESPECIALLY from stores. Odds are it had nothing to do with cleanliness.

Actually, we found a store near us where cages that went for 100 10 years ago are selling for 40 bucks. So sadly, the cage situation is the LAST thing to keep me from getting a rat.

And you can be sure there will be photos...

Can you imagine me turning down a chance to see rats in little outfits for free?

I don't know why, but I associate Andrew Jackson with cheese... like he had something to do with a giant cheese log, or something.

That's all I remember from high school.
Fritters: Cheeeese! by Frittersfritters on February 20th, 2008 07:37 pm (UTC)
Perhaps he grew up in a log cabin made of cheese logs?

So my association wasn't completely unfounded! I looked it up on the world wide wiki:

The book Real Life at the White House[1] confirms that ... Andrew Jackson did once receive a 1,400 pound, four foot in diameter, two foot thick (635 kg, 1.2 m diameter, 60 cm thick) block of cheese as a gift.[2] After two years of aging, he held a public "cheese tasting". The event was heavily attended and the cheese was consumed in two hours.

Oh man, that's AWESOME! So Andrew Jackson was a crazy bad-ass AND a huge cheese aficionado! That ROCKS!! Thanks for looking that up!

Yesss!! High school Social Studies finally proves its worth! Makes me feel better about teaching in a high school myself. Rock on.

Hey, Abe Lincoln actually shoveled coal for the Monitor...he was meeting the crew, and decided he would do more than just shake their dirty hands (and that alone was shocking enough to his cabinet, but he _asked for the shovel_...)
