Have a Happy Hamster Halloween

May you get lots of candy or party hard, or both. And do a hamster dance or two.

More hamsters


If you tear up tissue into smallish pieces and put them into your hamster cage, they’ll chew them up and line their nests with them. One of mine gets pretty fancy about it, too. This always makes me feel guilty when I clean the cage, because it destroys her fancy nest-work and has to start all over. I guess it gives them something to do tho.

The lighter grey hamster has learned that a hand inside the cage equals probable tasty treats, and thus she stands up on her hind legs, waving her front paws in the air to grab my finger in anticipation. Sometimes she even stands up like that if she sees I’m walking around in the room. She kind of looks like a mini-dancing bear. I could probably train her to walk on her hind legs as a ‘trick’, but I’m too lazy. It’s really cute tho.

Diablo3, where are thou?

It’s been almost two years since the official announcement of Diablo3 and I’m growing impatient.

I’ve finished playing Borderlands (a few times), I’ve played parts of Divine Divinity, Crysis, Tropico, and Torchlight. I’ve replayed parts of numerous favorite old games and currently my spare time has been spent playing …. absolutely nothing. I need a new smash&bash, item-hoarding gaming fix.

The new pets: dwarf hamsters

dwarf hamsters

During the early Winter I finally decided to acquire some dwarf hamsters as pets. They’re very small and as adorable as can be. These two have very different personalities and so…you guessed it…I have a favorite. The one on the right. She’s light grey, more active/amusing and more affectionate. For a hamster, that is.

Much as I love cats, I’m still unsure if I want another cat once Baby dies - the care and time-commitment isn’t as appealing to me now as it was when I was twenty - and since dwarf hamsters are VERY simple to care for and have a short lifespan, I thought they’d be an option. I’d really like a squirrel, but, well, that’s not an option here. Dwarf hamsters are awesome tho, so I’m happy.

And no, Baby-kitty isn’t jealous. ;)

Fall leaves, rain & rocks


The first big rainstorm has hit the West Coast, the leftover remains of some tropical storm. It’s been rainy and windy all day. It’s also made me realize hubby never got around to clearing out the small sections of rain gutter this summer, since there’s one spot in the back of the house that has become a near-waterfall.

Anyway…the rocks we put down in the front yard, combined with the falling maple leaves, made for a pretty picture.

KOTOR2 syncronized lightsaber swing

So, going through an old PC and all it’s ancient files, I came across a very short .avi file of the game KOTOR2. In case you don’t know, I loved that game to death and was completely obsessed with it for a while. The video bit shows Atton, Disciple and my main character all swinging their lightsabers at the same time. Don’t ask me how I managed that, I’m sure it was extensive use of the pause key and at a lot of luck and timing.

Anyway, it amuses me, it’s very short & small (500kb), and I placed in my random-junkyard media gallery here.
