Texas weather, dead rats and the sims.

Man, Texas, what are we gonna do with you? Yesterday it was something like 99 degrees outside (no joke, no exaggeration, that's just Texas) and the radio's all, "This is our last hot day. It won't be hot anymore." So, even though I've lived here for 18 years of my life, I still think to myself, "Oh, it'll probably be 80 or something tomorrow.

Nope. I walk out this morning, and it is FRIGGEN COLD. I have to go back and get a sweater. I just found out that where I am right now? It is 63 degrees. Oh, Texas, you whimsical little kook, what will you think of next? (Not that I'm complaning. This weather is actually making me absurdly happy.)


So apparently there are these rats that are wandering around in the ceiling at work. And apparently, a couple of them came down from the ceiling and died. And apparently, we can't find one of them so the shop SMELLS LIKE DEAD RAT, and I'm afraid to drink the water in case the reason we can't find it is if it died in the pipes or something and I'd secretly be drinking dead rat.

And the best part was yesterday, I was going to the bathroom, and THERE WAS A FUCKING LIVE RAT. And I was torn between the part of me that went, "Holy crap, it's riddled with diseases and is going to race out and bite me on the ankle and give me space rabies or something!" and the part of me that went, "Aw, that is the cutest thing ever, I want to take it home and keep it as a pet!" Luckily I did not go with the latter option. But still. I'm afraid to take my shoes off now, 'cause they's RATS runnin' around.

This section is about my Sims Legacy Challenge that I started last night, and unless your name is esoteriqua, you probably don't care, so I cut it. Collapse )
