Blog Fodder

Having placed down my bag, my laptop, and my clothes in my dorm room on a Sunday evening after a relatively entertaining weekend I crawled to the bed and discovered 3 brown maltesers-look-alike. That smelled like crap, because they were, indeed crap. Mouse crap! I jumped from the bed. I yelped. And yelped once more when I saw crawling on the window ledge the largest, blackest, evilest rat. Yeeeeelp! I yelped. I lost control of all my faculties, screamed an embarrassingly shrill scream, and ran out of the door. Having sufficiently collected myself I went back to the room and the rat was still there, wriggling its tail, biding its time, showing off its evilness. I don’t know exactly what Marshall and Lily saw back then, but this would definitely classify as a genuine Cock-a-Mouse. It didn’t fly, no it didn’t, but it did spread enough fear to always make me wake up in the middle of the night. Fear. I need something to overcome fear. I need…. a green lantern. All together now: In the brightest day, in the blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight, let all who worship evil’s might beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!!!!

Obviously, this is almost a carbon copy of all my entries about cockroaches. The next time I once again have a cockroach incident I shall copy and paste this and replace mouse with cockroach. As blog fodder.
