Bones About It
Everyone needs a hobby, right?
I admit, the idea of building a scale model velociraptor is appealing. I’d move it around the house, occasionally placing it in different windows throughout the week.
What ridiculous thing did you want to build or purchase, and for what reason? Maybe it’s a Tardis or a T-Rex head to mount in the woods behind your house? Did you end up making/getting that thing? Was it as awesome as you hoped it would be?
I’ve also been contemplating about what to do with that large “dust trap” space between the top of the kitchen cabinets and the ceiling. I think a grouping of Cambrian life, like a Opabinia and an Anomalocaris with a few trilobites, would look nice up there.

Netcracked
Because Jupiter is a dwarf and… oh never mind. It made me laugh.
Hey, did you know I take topic requests for the comic? It’s true. Over on our facebook page Beth requested something Nethack (Thanks Beth!). Voila!
While I have played my fair share of Nethack, I never managed to get very far. So, in that respect, I feel for Harriet’s… I mean, Horsehead McButts’, untimely demise.
Are there any oldies-but-goodies type of games you’ve found yourself revising over the years? Perhaps you have an old favorite go-to whenever some time needs sucking? For me, it’s the occasional MUSH or MUD server and the old GameBoy Pokemon titles. I never really got into any of the old console games probably because I never played them as as child. That was probably for the best in the long run. I have far too many games I enjoy playing these days as-is.

Get Clucky
Some things cannot be unseen.
In other news, a mouse crawled into the bowls of my car and died this week. Well, the mouse probably crawled in and died last week, but this week was a special week in the mouse decomposition process. I’m not an expert, or know anything really, about the rate at which rodents rot, but I can tell you, it’s not an odor one forgets. We disassembled most of the ventilation system to no avail. I still haven’t found the corpse, but with this crazy heat we are having right now, the poor bugger seems to be on the decomposition fast track. Thankfully, the smell has mostly dissipated by now. I did stuff air fresheners in all the places too, which seemed to help. Although, I think fake coconut car freshener is now forever associated with dead mice in my head. All things considered, I’ll take that collateral damage. Andy suggested I take it into a mechanic to get the mouse body extracted.
"So… how do I make that appointment? ‘Oh hi. Yeah, I have a dead mouse I need you guys to remove. Do you do that?’"
"I’m sure they get that more often than you think."
"True."
"At least you can tell them where it isn’t since we took a quarter of your car apart.”
"Also true."
"Or, we can save money by letting nature takes its course. If we’re lucky a weasel or something will come and extract the corpse for us."
"I’m not driving your car this week."
At which point I imagined a weasel crawling into my car to eat the dead mouse and then getting stuck. I imagine a weasel corpse might be easier to find. 
Anyway, how was your week? Do any of you have a fun chicken and/or livestock related story?

Frog Season
Every time I take the dog out for a walk at night this time of year, I feel as if I’m going to witness a clan of Lovecraftian frog people crawl out of the neighborhood drainage ponds. At least I don’t have frogs moving into my house. One of my friends gets to deal with that several times a year. She even lives in a second floor apartment, but that doesn’t seem to deter them. Also, her cats don’t really help with the situation.
When we moved out of our previous house I may have found more than one mummified frog. Naturally mummified that is, not wrapped up in wee bitty cloth strips and placed in a frog shaped sarcophagus with frog afterlife accoutrements. Just so we are clear on that matter. Poor little hormone addled buggers. Ah, nature. At least the slugs are less apocalyptic this year.
Has anyone else had a recent overrun of nature? Or maybe a spring time something that is especially irritating this year? Let us know in the comments!
I have a bad feeling the slugs are going to rally their forces at some point.

Also, we have a Facebook page now for those that like to book their faces, or however that works. Over-Encumbered Facebook Page
