because I haven't seemed crazy enough lately...  
Sister and I might adopt 2 more rats today.

Wait, wait, I know what you're thinking. "Won't that be 29 rats!? Are you absolutely nutcakes?"

I've got two arguments for you:



(And yes, we're absolutely nutcakes. We have rats in every room of the house. These little ratlets will need to go through decon be quarrantined in the bathroom.)

We haven't placed them on hold, because the universe might want to save us from ourselves... but if those little cutepies are still available at the humane society after work today, they will be joining the Geek!Rat commune.

They are two boys, currently named "Seamus" and "Neville." Those names are considerably awesome, but anyone have any better (read: geekier eta: Star Trekkier) suggestions?

Edit: Sanity has overtaken us temporarily. We will actually just go home and play with the 27 rats we already have, despite my desire to play with omgbabyrats! If they haven't been adopted by Thursday, we'll consider it a sign from the universe that they need to join the geek!rat commune.

I have been thinking about you muchly and your houseishness! Soon I will also have to get a big house to keep my rat commune in style. ;)

OMG if you had a house as big as mine you could have SO MANY RATS (and, y'know, even host a support group for fellow rat-commune-leaders)... :)

I can't waaaait to see your place!!

Sadly my office is woefully understaffed right now so I can't get away for wedding-of-noradannan and house-seeing. :( :( :( I cannot even express my sad about this! But omg, someday I will be back in New England and I will come play with your garden snakes and help you weed things and it'll be DELIGHTFUL.

It looks like I'm not going to get the Wicked Awesome Promotion I was hoping for, but if I get even the Semi-Awesome Promotion, I am totally buying a house for my rat commune. It'll be FABOO. Yay!

And sadly I am an idiot with an incredibly poor sense of timing and accidentally scheduled both my parents' visit-from-faraway and my housewarming party for the same day as the wedding-of noradannan, which I won't be there, either, even though the wedding is only two and a half hours away from where I live. Boo.

I will send happy energy toward your Promotion!! And the garden snakes will totally be here whenever you next appear in New England!!

Sad on both accounts!

But! All it means is that E and I need to see each of you faboo people some time when we are not running around crazy saying hi to everyone and being all "zomgwedding".

OMG, are you all coming to PIEMASS?? Have you heard about PIEMASS? (I can't remember who was in on that original email conversation...) December 21st, a Friday, an East Coast gathering of holiday-themed pie, for folk of the Pi persuasion. Because last year it was INSANE trying to get everyone who was East For The Holidays in one place, this year we are Planning In Advance. Location? MY HOUSE!!!

Of course, both of you are more than welcome to come visit my house before December. But December should be on both your calendars, if possible!
Ravennoradannan on August 7th, 2007 07:53 pm (UTC)
So. There.
Little Red: temptation islandmylittleredgirl on August 8th, 2007 12:30 am (UTC)
OMFG. I totally want to be there!!! I don't know what our worky schedule will be like but if I get to escape at all for the holidays, PIEMASS is the first stop!
-a.frog/gorf.a-froggoddess on August 7th, 2007 07:53 pm (UTC)
Oh, and I think there might also be flaming pie. Because fire + pie = awesome!
redbeardredbeard on August 8th, 2007 01:44 pm (UTC)
Horray flaming food!
Ravennoradannan on August 7th, 2007 07:15 pm (UTC)
I <3 you too.

Also, I would note that Seamus and Neville can be pretty darn geeky names, if one considers them to be named after the Harry Potter characters.

<3s to you and the (manymany) rats.

Oh, that is true. Perhaps I should have specified: more Star Trek names. Or else they might feel left out. ;) (Though we do have one rat named Lehi, which is not at all Star Trek related, so...)
babylil on August 7th, 2007 07:21 pm (UTC)
They are SO adorable! (And you're crazy, but I totally couldn't resist them either, lol)
Little Red: rats in frocks - semyazamylittleredgirl on August 7th, 2007 07:22 pm (UTC)
It's not my fault! RATS ARE SO CUTE!

OMG. *needs a support group*

OOOOOHMYGODsocute. Seriously. Neville ♥! You should totally give him an X-Files name! Like...Langely. *dies in a pool of glee*
Little Red: rats in frocks - semyazamylittleredgirl on August 8th, 2007 12:31 am (UTC)
OMG it would be so much gleeeee!!

Sis and I are restraining from getting more rats. For two days, at least. *bites nails*
Trialia: groovy kittytrialia on August 7th, 2007 08:45 pm (UTC)
OMG, the little faces!! *falls in love*
Little Red: rats in frocks - semyazamylittleredgirl on August 8th, 2007 12:34 am (UTC)
SO CUTE! OMG. Baby rats have the cutest faces. I need to go home and kiss my grown-up rats on the nose.
rogue equestrian: dragonflyelvinborn on August 7th, 2007 09:33 pm (UTC)
okay. so Neville is hella cute.
Little Red: rats in frocks - semyazamylittleredgirl on August 8th, 2007 12:34 am (UTC)
So cute! I love rats with ears on the side of their heads instead of the top... they always look just sweeter. :)

Awwww, they're so cute!!! And since I'm reading the first book of Harry Potter right now, I actually know who Neville and Seamus are! *is proud of herself* Trekkie names? What about Nimoy and Enterprise? (I think Enterprise is too long *shrugs*)
