Thankfully, I know what is hip and happening. Don't judge...but I just downloaded the song from iTunes. Mike made me do it. Ok, that is a lie.
On to more important things, I have a mouse...or maybe it is a giant nasty rat, or an adorable squirrel. All I know is that last Tuesday I opened the front door the find the contents of my nut-mix bag spread all over the kitchen, and the bag had a hole chewed through it. The hilarious/sad thing is that I wasn't the first one of my roommates to find the mess. One of my "challenged" roommates had already been home. But instead of concluding that we had a rat/mouse, she just wrote a note on the fridge that said, "Clean up your mess". Fucking brilliant. Yes, train wreck of a roommate, I came home, chewed a little hole in my food bag and then flung its contents all around the house. And then I went over to the window and pooped little black turds all over the place. Caught me!
I don't know what made me more mad, the fact that I had to deal with getting rid of a rodent or that I live with people who are too stupid to realize we have a rodent.
I know exactly why we have a rodent too. UBC is full of "brilliant" students, and I am surrounded by them. A couple of weeks ago I saw my "brilliant" neighbor lining her window ledge with various nuts and delicious goodies to feed the squirrels. Carrie Bradshaw said it best, "it's just a rat with a cuter outfit!" I walked away shaking my head thinking, "now we are going to get rats".
Weird, I was right...I guess I am just one of the brilliant ones (no quotations).
