Jay Holben, director of the upcoming documentary Camgirls is an uncool American who had never heard of Degrassi until I schooled him so hard he logged off!!!
Seriously, I’m in shock that someone in the world doesn’t know what Degrassi is, either the Next Generation or old school Degrassi Jr. High or High OR, if you’re really old like me, you may even remember The Kids of Degrassi Street. It’s just this huge thing! I had no idea there were people in the world who didn’t grow up with it and haven’t experienced it yet.
It’s only the best show in the whole wide world – what is wrong with him????? How could someone be so sheltered???? It was on PBS in the US and it was like, globally critically acclaimed and won awards and stuff!
Well hello there internets, I’m glad you’re here because I have quite a bit to write about this evening.
First things first, I added a new page to this site under the “People In My World” category, god I’m so productive, I know. I don’t know how I do it either. But seriously, it can get confusing when I start writing about people so I’m trying to write a blurb or two on each person in my world for those moments when you just don’t know who the fuck I’m talking about. It’s taken me, oh, six months to do Jesse & Jen’s paragraphs, but I’m happy with them, so up they went.
In other news, Jen showed up at my house with a box tonight and inside that box was a baby rat. (Yes, another one.) We’ve decided to name her Twinkle (Twink for short) and she’s pretty damn cute. This video is of when we were introducing Twink to Zilla in the bath tub, as suggested by some friends of mine.
So far the introductions are going well, except Zilla dragged Twink from one end of the cage to the other by the scruff of the neck a few times. Twink didn’t seem to be hurt or distressed while this was happening so we just let it happen for a bit before putting them in separate cages for the night. I was thinking that since Twink is a baby, maybe Zilla was thinking of it as her baby; either that or maybe it’s just an establishing dominance thing. Despite having many rats as pets I don’t know all that much about rat behaviour, now that I think about it. I’ve only ever had single rats except for Kurt & Courtney, which I got in grade 9. The unfortunate thing was that in the case of my rats, instead of mating, Courtney really did kill Kurt. He wouldn’t leave her alone and one morning I found him inside their little house, missing a good chunk out of his throat. Ever since then, I only ever had single rats. Lovely story, huh?
I think Zilla & Twink are going to end up getting along fine, they’re already grooming each other, which I’m assuming is a good sign, so on some level they’re already getting along. Still, seperate cages at night for the first little while, I think, just to be on the safe side.
The other thing I wanted to talk about was how awesome my friend Sini is. No matter how low I feel, Sini can always make me feel better with just how awesome she is. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at her YouTube account. :D
Too lazy? Click here for just one of her gems:
There just aren’t any words and that’s why I adore her. :D
