NOW I AM CONFUSED... is the hamster preggers or not? "She" is definitely bigger and rounder than the other two. If she gets on the wheel when another one's on it, the other one is forced to loop the loop by her very weightiness... Because these animals are so very wild and flighty (it is an achievement just to get them to walk on you, let alone stand still - and even then they're only looking for a chance to jump off) it's been almost impossible to sex them and very hard to establish whether Spherical really is with children or just bigger ... or (this only struck me today) from another litter and thus older. I have no idea and only time will tell. If she really is pregnant surely she will get bigger and bigger as days pass? Then again I once caught a pregnant mouse... had no idea that she was till she actually gave birth. (This was when our house was utterly overrun with mice. I thought if I keep the babies and somehow tame them I can have free pets. (The mice they sell in pet shops, and for that matter the ones they use in labs are only domesticated wild house mice.) But it didn't work that way: all the babies (the size and colour of baked beans) died within about five hours.)
I tried to answer a tag earlier (8 random things about me) but had to stop after two. Firstly I was hungry, but to be honest I couldn't think of any random things. Surely I have posted all? I suppose I could cheat and use my wild mouse breeding thing as point three....
By the way: am I a philistine or has Mariah Carey NOT got an amazing voice? I was quite shocked to hear she had won some MTV poll as "greatest voice of all time" - please no! That horrible breathy fluttery sound... applied to "trendy" R&B "roots" that she doesn't have... plus high notes with all the magical timbre of a dog whistle. Please! No no no!!

The egotism of shyness - A few posts ago I wrote about feeling responsible for killing people. I realised today that I blame myself for many things. Most things. To be honest quite...
