When I am in the kitchen, she really gets going. When I go over closer to her cage, she heads to the back and watches me suspiciously.
I got two more mice. I intended to get one albino, in case I need to divide the mice between two cages, so I have two pairs. But this little one who I thought at first was a black eyed white (I've read that black eyed white is actually linked to a recessive lethal allele, so I was suprised) but really she's got patches of really pale cream, so, well... she was too pretty to go home with anyone who didn't appreciate that, so I decided to get her, in addition to the albino I originally intended to - hey, look at that adorable black and tan! With the cute little white spot on her belly!
And that is how I came home with Chevre (the black and tan) and Serena (the white/cream). I am now maxed out on my mouse housing capacity.
I woke up this morning to my alarm, which as usual I set for half an hour before I meant to get up. Normally, I wake up, reset for when I actually need to get up, and go back to sleep. Today, I reset my clock, instead of the alarm. So when I woke up on my own, my clock said it was 9:05... my class starts at 9. Crap. So I sprang from my bed, threw on clothes, and grabbed my stuff... and then noticed that my phone said it was now 20 til. Perfect timing, really.
Rachejm- good luck in your interview!
