Eep! It's nothing personal! Why, some of my best friends are mice! I think you know I have a lot of respect for mice. But rats and mice are two distinct species. Well, wouldn't you be offended if you were mistaken for a rat? Rats have so much bad press--I feel as if I have a responsibility to spread the good word about rats and if I get pigeon-holed as a "safe" mouse then I've let down my species.
Ooh, you won that tea set? I assume it's Erin's.. I somehow managed to snag one of her little sake cups with a wolf on it, and i love it. By the time i made it around to her table again, all her pottery was gone :/ I had wanted more. Happy to see that tea set has a loving home :) Congrats.
