had a great birthday! my social battery's been running low so I spread it out over the weekend, hanging out in small groups. I didn't get to see everyone I would have liked, but I'm super grateful for everyone I got to spend time with
now it's @FuzzyProxy's birthday and I'm gonna go eat a burger about it, then spend at least a couple days taking a break from anything socially taxing because hooooboy it's been a week
a good week, but really really exhausting
CW hypothetical mouse death Show more
I guess it would have been tactful to slap a CW on the previous toots about Mouse War 2k17
even though not one single blasted mouse has actually died yet
I dunno. I can see it being upsetting for some people. it was for me, 9 years ago, when I was first living in a place with a mouse problem. at first I was determined to use only live traps.
I'm way more callous about it now and I'm sitting here wondering if that's a good thing or not.
they're brazen little fuckers too, I keep seeing them running across the floor and on top of the stove in the middle of the day while I'm right there in the next room
the bait just sits there while more and more mouse shit appears all over the counter. we've been trying not to leave any crumbs so idk what the hell's going on. between the shit and the traps, the kitchen is basically unusable
the traps bother me more tbh, I've started having dreams where I have to feel around the counter in the dark and it's just totally covered in traps
we've had mice for weeks and it fucking sucks, I'm about to go buy 50 cans of spaghettios and burn the kitchen down
we've had no problem trapping the little shits in the past but these ones are just impossible to catch?? we've had about 8 traps with increasingly enticing bait all over the counter for like a week and haven't caught a single one, which is unprecedented. it's really really wearing me down
my friend made an instance at meemu.org so I'm gonna be trying that out, but so far getting instances to play nice with each other is a little annoying? users of other instances appear to have no avatar/posts/follows at first
oh wait I can just boost them
