Watch your toes while sitting at the computer desk.


So we have an unauthorized resident living in our apartment, and he's living right under our computer desk (you should be proud of me for being brave enough to sit here at all). And if that wasn't bad enough he decided to show himself last night while we were watching LOST and I could hardly concentrate on my favorite show of all time (now THAT is unexcuseable). He's a brave little bugger too, I tried turning the light on to make him run away and he just kept on creeping around (you can't really blame him when there are so many delicious little tidbits all over the dining room floor). After a while I started feeling less nervous and realized he's actually a kind of cute little guy, so now I'm really torn, should I set our a trap or not? If I were the Molens I would have tried to catch him right then and there, but I have a problem with thinking if I ignore things long enough they will just go away (does that ever work?).

Ooh....don't ignore, he will find peace and comfort in your home. Then he will invite his girlfriend in and before you know it, you'll have a family to fight off. Bryan felt so guilty when we finally killed our intruder. From one side he was cute, the other, too smashed to recognize! Catch 'em while you can. You can get these mouse traps that Emily recommends.....I can't remember, you should ask her. I did see them at Walgreens. Goodluck!

I told Thula to come take a look at the Elmer's new pet. After her initial shock I asked her, "Should they keep it or set a mousetrap?" And she said, "Don't kill Gus!"
