Brown Bugs

Our house has been invaded by tiny brown bugs, that look similar to tiny brown ladybugs, but very likely aren't. They haven't bitten anyone yet, and as far as I know have done no damage to the furniture, but they are irksome and everywhere. Get some water, they're in your cup. Pluck armpit hair, and they fall on your neck. Wash the plates, and some will fall on the plate stand. Mom thinks they're from something rotting and "not right" in the house. I think it may be from leftover rat corpses, if that is the cause. I have a sneaky suspicion there's a rat corpse under the fridge, but I'm certainly not going to be the one to seek it out or inspect for it. Bad enough Mom poisoned the last two rats and made me clear up the corpses. I just hope the brown bugs aren't fleas.

Watched a very odd movie called Slaves of New York. Every so often, the public English language channel shows a keen thing like that. From what I could understand, the story revolves around Eleanor, a hat maker struggling to figure out herself and her dying relationship with a petulant artist. There are quite a number of side characters circling around Eleanor, all of them interesting, but rather vague, I think. The weirdness grows so acute, it becomes kitsch. On the other hand, it's so weird, it's not sad. The Amazon.com reviews for this movie raved a bit about the atmosphere (it's an 80s "period" movie). Personally, I did think the clothes (they're more like costumes than clothes, heh) were colorful, very wacky, definitely reeking of the time. I didn't care much for the music, too...striking. The movie's plot was erratic, which probably suited the confusion of the main characters, but didn't help otherwise. I'd say the show's worth the watch just for the costumes though; they are interesting.

Hamtaro proves its fuzzy mettle, by demonstrating again just how cute it can be as it hypnotizes people everywhere. Found out Hamtaro is currently the highest rated show on the Cartoon Network, whether its for the daily episodes, or the weekend Toonami blitz. That's just the height of keen-ness, since Hamtaro deserves it. It's an excellent cartoon, there's next to no violence, the main characters do nothing but work together to have fun and look as cute and as big-eyed as is rodently possible, and it generates a mountain of money in merchandise. I'm still concerned about the vast errors in hamster-keeping practices the show seems to encourage, but at least the show stresses the importance of actually caring for hamsters.

Ahoy Dark!
What happened to your Utopia Site? I haven't been able to bring it up for some time. I know about Hamtaro, it's one of my daughter's fave shows. Sometimes I watch it with her.

Eeee...site is down, transmogrifying it. Have a space for it on a friend's server, will get it up there soon as I prettify everything. Hamtaro is cool, hamsters will one day rule the world! For which Hamtaro is but a small step and gigantic leap.

*skritches head* Hmm... *looks up "prettify" in the dictionary*

Feh! Hamsters can't rule the world 'cause they'd be spending too much time sleeping, munching and looking cute. *nods*

Ah, but if we can rule the world while spending too much time sleeping, munching and looking cute, we'd make very good tyrants. :)
