My friend Zo popped up last night and said "Hey you. I can has ShamanTime nao?" So I knocked on Hamster's door, and he said "YASS YOU CAN HAS HAMSTER!"

And she told me that Coyote downright ORDERED me to make an esoteric silly song, so he could laugh at me.

So I did! And Hamster was quite pleased with the providence!
Seriously, you have GOT to hear this weird thing I slapped together in, like half an hour, totally goofy and fun, complete with gerbils and hamsters and throatsinging and silly noises.


The lyrics, for what they're worth, follow in the LJ-cut. Well, aside from the silly happy gibberish, of course.

Squirrely t-shirt
I bumped into this t-shirt for sale online and thought some of the squirrels on the list might enjoy it... I don't know how long they'll be carrying it. They have an "iMoose" design too, but the squirrel was definitely cuter :) (I don't know if this shirt design was done independently of the i<insert animal name> meme that went around on the furry art sites back when these commericals originally aired or not...)

Rodent photoshoot again
I've put the rodent photoshoot down for 1:00PM Sunday, to allow sufficient time after the rodent panel. See http://my.furtherconfusion.org/events/view/191

Anyone have any opinion or suggestion on doing a rodent photoshoot at FC? We can post something at http://my.furtherconfusion.org/events/unofficial if we decide on something.

FC 2010 Rodent photoshoot
Anyone want to do a rodent photoshoot at FC 2010?

Let's see, just a thought, the Rodent Species Panel is 11AM Sunday, maybe meet there, leave some time to get into suit, do the photoshoot at 12:30... Just throwing out one idea.

Video of rat carrying piece of bread into her cage
It's a rat carrying a piece of bread into her cage. She's a pretty impressive climber.

Rodent party location :)
The Rodent Party is being held from 7:00pm to 11:00pm on Thursday night in room 530 (the one right at the end of the hallway and down the stairs) in the Marriott Hotel (across the street from the Westin). Don't miss it! :)

Rodent Party 2009 -- Look for this sign!
Below is the sign you will be looking for at Anthrocon on Thursday night to find out where the Rodent Party is being held; I won't have the room number until we check-in. Please keep in mind, this is going to be at the Marriott, which is across the street from the Westin.

We will not be serving dinner, only snacks and refreshments (no booze, this is a dry party.) Please come by and meet up with your fellow rodents and chill out for a bit before the con craziness gets started. We'll have some cheesy boardgames too. Hope to see you there! :)

Rodent party at AC 2009...
So, the rodent party at AC this year is still a go, still for Thursday night, probably 7pm through 10pm or so. We're actually going to be in the hotel across the street rather than at the Westin, which kinda' sucks in terms of getting people to show up :/ Trying to figure out the best way to get the word out once we get settled and know our room number etc. I don't know what time they will put up the AC message board in the con hotel so I'm wary of relying on that.

Any suggestions? I expect to be checked in by lunch time Thursday, and I hope the internets will be working so I could post it here on LJ... Ugh, I suppose this would be a good use for Twitter, but I'm going to resist ;P

Giant rat caught in China
This is really cool, but beware the rat in the photo with the article is (looks) deceased if that will bother you. marko_the_rat pointed me to an article he found about a giant rat caught in China. I mean GIANT -- six pounds! Rawr!

*Peeps around tha corner with a bit of sniffing, a sigh and enters*
Greetings all, names Freya. I'm a bit new to these parts, and just left the most awfull rat group I've seen! It was sposed to be a group of rat lovers, but all they did was gripe at people who did wrong in their eyes. I hope this group is better.

I love the fact that the first post I see is about the pouch rats in Africa sniffing for the land mines, as me and my mate are constantly telling people that so they realize rats aren't disgusting creatures like everyone seems to think. (well other than those of us who love them, and are them)Feel free to friend me if ya want! I dont bite. . . just nibble.

HeroRATS adoption
Some of you probably already know that giant pouched rats are used for minesweeping in Africa. Now there's a website where you can donate to them.
The site has pictures of rats in training, working in minefields, and in labs detecting tuberculosis.
