Been a while...

But I really don't want to get into everything I've been doing for the last 20 days, so I'll just give you all a quick recap:
  • Went up to PA weekend after my birthday and saw Jess, which was very nice, but not long enough. Went out for Indian food with a bunch of our friends
  • working, still at Bode Tech
  • looking for a better job. Not much to report on that front, but I'm looking
  • Thanksgiving yesterday at my parents house. Was nice. Had a bunch of family over as well as some old friends. Crowded and a little overwhelming, but nice.

Oh, god. Beckett is dead. He was doing better. His eye infection had spread to both eyes, but it was clearing up. He was eating and seemed alright. I was looking forward to seeing him again this weekend when I went up to visit Jess. And now he's just gone. I miss him. He was such a sweet little boy. So cute and dopey looking with his big dumbo ears. SOme of these pictures (the really grainy, fuzzy ones) are from when we first got him and he was living in my room in the Writers' House my Junior year inside a cardboard box. HE'd climb up my shirt and stick his head in my moputh. He was just so loving he wasn't afraid of anything. And he had a little paper bag, and he'd try to steal my hand and pull it inside. As he grew, he turned into a little pudding-rat. He'd just tumble all over the place. He was always getting picked on by Jess' other rats. Griffin used to use him for a pillow. And he'd always squeak real loud and go running to Jess. Little mama's boy. And when we first got him, he had mites, so we had to keep giving him baths. He hated that. And one time, he escaped his box and we found him under the sofa, just sitting there looking all innocent. But that's how he always was. Never had a mean thought in his life.

I miss you, Beckett. I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. I hope you remembered me. I'll always remember you.

I went to the zoo on Saturday with Rachel, sort of as a birthday goft for myself. It'd been a while since I was out there, and the new Asia Trail looks really good. The best part is that it was all free! The only thing I spent money on was a Pupmkin Pie ice cream cone at Baskin Robbins after dinner.
