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.

Too bad you can't come to NYC after FC this time...I know you would have had fun fursuiting it in Chinatown for the Chinese New Year of The Rat coming up.

Yeah. I'm sorry I can't do that too. I might get a chance in a smaller chinatown? I tend to be pretty shy about fursuiting in public.

Don't worry, love. I only wanted to bring the new set.
