Early reports from the coalface

Here are a few comments I typed up while I didn't have an internet connection...

At the airport

I was so cute! I got tagged and numbered for a time and motion study on passengers so I'm officially an experimental rat now. puffs out furry chest in pride And then when I got redirected to another desk for check-in and I scurried through a maze even though there was apparently a direct route. Now I'm at the departure gate, waiting for my plane and wishing I had an internet connection so I could post this straight away. :/

In transit

I am weak. I tried to rise above it, but still I fall prey to those tired ratty stereotypes. I swear I checked over the movies on offer carefully, but still there was nothing as appealing as another rewatching of Ratatouille. This is such a masterful movie. Pixare refused to compromise their creative vision; not for Disney, not even to make it more commercially accessible. It seems they paid for it in the lack of merchandising tie-in—at least in Australia—but who can doubt the love they lavished on the movie? And I believe that it was still a success commercially, which is the main thing.

And here's something I typed up right now...

rainhopperroo and Waggs Wolf took their dog for a walk so I got to go for walkies too. ^_^ They took me to Irvine Regional Park where we trekked about enough to wear out the poor dog. The rat may share photos with you later.
