Green Room - Week 10 - Weekend Edition

Good afternoon Idolers!

The poll is up and going: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/897530.html so remember to get out there: Read, Comment, Vote - and Tell a Friend to Do the Same!

dmousey had a mishap with her entry and had to repost it. So the new link has been added to my post. (For those who don't know, you can't change a LJ poll in progress, you would have to delete the entire thing and start over, in this case that would mean all those votes received would be gone. I know that people are always asking me about that.)

I know that we've had someone delete their entry on purpose before, But to the best of my memory, this is an Idol first. So "congratulations". ;)

***

I hope you are having more fun this weekend than a hamster running around in a ball.

(I say this because I am currently watching a hamster running around in his ball. He seems to be having a really good time)

Still plowing through the entries. I have read so many excellent and fun ones. I want to recommend halfshellvenus's story on Pinocchio's first date -- it is seriously dark and fun, and of course, I have the privilege of being married to her, which has not influenced my opinion one bit.

I've been taking it easy - just woke up from a nap, and will get in some more reading shortly.

We used to have hamsters in balls, and they used to have a good time except for Snowball (secretly, Snowball II).

Snowball II was fixated on the cats' food for some reason, so it would roll around until it caught the smell of the kibbles, and then spend the next eternity repeatedly bumping the ball into the cats' food dish.

One night, I thought I heard the tell-tale sound of the Whale jumping down off the laundry room counter (the cats are forbidden to be on counters). Later, some wandering around and eating. At bedtime, I checked the house to put him outside, and when I turned on the laundry room light... blep.

There was the world's flattest, widest hamster stuffed pancake-sized with cat kibble. He was an escape artist, and he'd made a beeline for his target spot. Victory at last!

We had a Hamster named Speedy who was a Houdini like that. I even had to break him out of drywall he had gotten behind. Speedy was mean- nasty mean- but my kids loved him. He escaped one night, and our female cat Butch ate him and left his fur. Seriously- that was all that was left! He died the way he lived!

Alicia, I'm sorry if I'm traumatizing you now!

lol I remember that Speedy and that Butch ate him (you told me later when I was older).

This is why we do not have hamsters. xD

Our little escape artist was mainly the result of our 8-year-old daughter not properly latching the cage with a hamster that spent a lot of time climbing upside down in there. We would find the Whale worshipping the china cabinet or the washing machine, and realize that the hamster was out and behind them.

One night, we noticed this motion at the edge of the kitchen. Eventually, it became clear that the hamster was out again. The Whale was right behind him, prodding him with his nose until the hamster became visible and we knew to put him back in the cage again.

It's a hit or miss thing, but usually cats know the other animals in the house are family members and don't even think about eating them.

Speedy... poor little guy!

lol Mom messaged me yesterday in a panic going WHAT DO I DO?? and I was like, "Well, best guess is respost it and message Gary to let him know what you did."

She does most of her posting and everything through a tablet which makes it much easier to accidentally delete a post as far as I can tell. :)

Did I ever tell you that KFP likes to pretend he's a hamster? He curls up on this armed pillow (which I'd always been told is called a husband) and saya he's in his hamster nest.

I would love to be a hamster in a ball. That would just be awesome right now.

Thank you Gary! I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I'm a knucklehead. For those who don't know I have Parkinson's and some days my hands do things they are not told! (And yes I heard it as it wrote it! ;)

I'm sorry again for the inconvenience! And Hamsters are such silly dudes. Peace~~~

I used to have a hamster that would run on the outside of his wheel. He'd never go in it, he'd just stand outside it on his hind feet and spin it around with his front paws.
