Really, They’re Mostly Written… In My Head…


I’ve got about three posts written in my head.

But have I been writing? Noooooooooo. *

Instead I’ve been cleaning up mouse shit.

Over the past few days, the mouse has still ignored the live-catch traps.  He touched one glue trap, figured out it was sticky, and now knows what they are.  And hasn’t taken a bite of the d-CON.

Last night was the last straw, when I came home to mouse crap all over the couch and side table. And the really annoying part (sorta) is that he’s not even eating any food in the house. Not that I have food in the open to begin with, so I have no idea what drove him in in the first place. He’s obviously eating somewhere else and coming in here to do his, er, “thing”.


Maybe he’s trying escape that harsh LA winter outside; I mean, it’s 60 out there tonight so, you know, brrr.

The exterminator was called today. I’m sorry, but the cute little guy had his chance. Cuteness only goes so far… especially when you find mouse droppings in the drawer where you keep your measuring cups.

Pest control will be here tomorrow.

On the plus side: my neighbor has had him as well, so at least I know I’m not seeing things.

More interesting posting to resume soon. Really.

* On the plus side, I did comment post on this post and this post.


  1. As long as the little voices in your head aren’t commenting on your interior monologues, I think you’re okay.

  2. Glad to know I’m not the only one who writes posts in my head and just can’t quite seem to get them on paper/online.

  3. Nasty. 😦 Ewww gross nasty. Although I will take the furry creatures over the bugs I have any day…they are still meant to be outside…

  4. Stay away from two or three way conversations with those voices. Visit me at:

  5. I saw a mouse scurry across the floor of my brother’s place a few months ago and it creeped me the hell out.

    Kudos to you for trying to take care of things in a slightly more humane way before calling in pest control.

    Though I agree – once he starts leaving ‘things’ behind, especially near cooking equipment and such, you need to turn the job over to the proper authorities to, um, get things done.

  6. I’ve only called an exterminator once – for a gopher – and the critter was toast in less than 6 hours. I hope your exterminator experience is as smooth as mine.

  7. Buh-bye mousey!

  8. I’m disappointed, GH. I thought you would have taken this challenge up and seen it out to the end. Instead, you threw in the towel and called the exterminator. 😛
