squirrel invasion / Christmas invasion

mood: indescribable

It's spring and a squirrel keeps creeping into my house while I'm eating lunch. It tries to be quiet but always makes a suspicious noise and I catch it and chase it out. I do think they're cuter than rats, but still, it's a wild animal and it does not belong here. One year we had opossums, which are so noisy and clumsy I'm amazed they have survived in the city. *closes back door firmly*

Which reminds me, thanks to friends, teenboy and I watched both The Christmas Invasion and The New Earth last weekend. I actually liked the first one better, it sparkled a bit more and I was quite surprised by the politics at the end. I like being surprised. The New Earth was good, just not quite as good (and had plot holes one could drive a truck through). I think David Tennant is perfect for this kind of inspired silliness and could watch him read the phone book :-)

*goes back to work*

As some one who lives in the town and the only wildlife I see in on tv, I think the squirrel in your kitchen sounds lovely. Now if it was my kitchen, that would be completely different!

I'll watch David T read the phone book with you any day.

I live in a small city with a big university very near San Francisco, so I think it's the best of all worlds. Our house is in an old (for California) section, almost 100 years old, and while the back yard was partly sold for a small apartment house and we have a biggish shed/studio/home office in the back, we do have an actual bit of yard.

David T lurve!

I loved the New Earth, but I'd also had about a bottle of wine by the time the show rolled. So. I need to see it again.

awww, what an imposition ;-)

I'm trying to burn it to DVD so teenboy can take it to class as they were just discussing the whole question of growing humans for parts.

Sneaky little squirrel! We had a baby skunk come in through our cat door once. So adorable, and yet so smelly. :)

Skunk, oh noes! We saw a family of them crossing the road in the big park around here. Slowly and with true confidence.

*revels in the David-lurve*

(He seems to be funny and nice in person too. Clever us, to like such good people)

Apologies, I've fixed it.
