When Rats Travel

Seeing as I'm leaving for America in 1½ weeks, I couldn't resist sharing this delightful strip from the Australian syndicated comic strip Swamp:



(I want to assure my very kind American hosts that I will not be travelling with two garbage bags!)


(And higgs_raccoon sent me a box full of Swiss chocolates, in part in appreciation of my fursuit video. Go tell him how wonderful he is!)

Have a good trip!

Have you seen Flushed Away yet btw? Colin and I really enjoyed it. :)

I was a bit sulky about
Flushed Away
at first, because the impression I got is that the main character was originally supposed to be a rat but the producers later called him a "mouse" in the advertising to make him more marketable. :/ The movie itself was fairly quiet on whether he's a mouse or a rat, but I opted for mouse because he seemed to have a smoother tail. I did enjoy the movie regardless, and it still had a lot of positive rat characters (Rita foremost among them--her family never reneges on a deal!). Very British humour, which of course we Aussies and Kiwis can get. Not sure how well it went down in America.

*Nuzzles*

Should I be expecting you to swing by this trip as we discussed months ago? I know I haven't heard anything back since.

Ah, no. Not on this trip. Sorry, I thought you knew. It's certainly a possibility on a future trip, but if so I'd keep you well informed. If you were showing up at FC of course, I'd love to see you.

If you were going to Philadelphia, I know a dude there who wouldn't mind at all if you brought bags of garbage with you, LOL. Don't ask. Nice kid, but strange fetish.

No. He is a raccoon, however!
