flail, energetic, bouncy

Things you don't want to do--

1) Open your bedroom door and see something flapping down the hallway.

To be totally responsible, I should have tracked down the bat, carefully captured it somehow without getting bitten, and released it outside...but it was nearly 1:30 in the morning and I needed to get to sleep. If I'd devoted myself to capturing something tiny, flight-capable, and possibly infected with rabies at that hour, sleep would have been a very long time in coming.

So, once it had flown into the guest room, I closed the door (well, after coaxing a fascinated Othello out of there) and taped a "BEWARE OF BAT" sign on it.

Last I saw the little thing, it was actually being pretty cute: it had curled up on the highest point on the wall and apparently gone to sleep. Hopefully it'll survive the night in there and my parents won't freak out and kill it in the morning.

For something more interactive, a meme that amuses me:

Come up with the craziest theory you can think of for any fandom (or fandoms--ridiculous crossover theories a bonus) I know about, and I will explain why it makes perfect sense and is in fact probably true.

And now I'm just coming up with excuses to avoid going to bed, so I think I'll post and be done with it.

Oh yeah, sadieko showed me this site. It looks nifty. You scribble a picture, and people have to comment either in pictures themselves or in drawn text.
