I HAVE JUST SPENT about four hours reading other people's blogs. Have I got a disease?
Also all the ones I promised to read I keep forgetting in ever cog-nogg-i-log circles.
Eventually it all got to me and I left this comment in someone's box because they'd mentioned their pets. Including a mesocricetus auratus (tubby hammy).
You gotta be careful with hamsters. I've had loads of 'em. My best one used to gnash his teeth at me and strike like a poisonous snake when I disturbed him in bed. Then he yawned, stretched and rubbed his bleary eyes and realized it was me and 4gave me.
Now I've got a Chinese one and everyone thinks it's a mouse but IT IS NOT. It looks like a mouse but it has pouches. So it (or rather HE) is a hammy. Whoopee!!`¬
I really think I ought to have a lie-down now.
It was Christmas eve in a war zone - I just about managed to rise this morning but shining is still a long way off. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I had my usual stress dream last night....
