that I feel like a real snakekeeper. I’d been suspecting that maybe Tenzing shedded without my noticing, because he didn’t look all dull anymore. So last night I took out one of the frozen pinkie mice I bought in Davenport, and warmed it up by hand. (It ended up sticky to the touch, which I wasn’t expecting.) Aaron was sleeping, so I opened the cage lid quietly. No sooner had I bumped Tenzing’s nose with the mouse than he took it instantly and silently (only making a sound as he fell to the floor with it). I sat and watched him swallow it, although I could barely see either of them. Within a few minutes, he had gotten it down his throat and gone back to wandering around the cage like he usually does at night. As of now he’s sitting on his branch under his hide, digesting. Next week I’ll take a video of him striking and post it so you all can watch. It’s pretty awesome.
Other stuff: classes are going fine. I think I like all of my classes this semester. I’ve only had a couple sessions of each, of course, but they seem pretty good. (For reference, they’re intros to sociology and anthropology, Spanish 217, and English Trads. 1 – that is, early English literature. In that one we’ll be reading stuff like Beowulf, The Faerie Queene, and such.)
And Aaron just a few minutes ago told me that several people from college frequent my blog, like a guy named Matt downstairs. Well if you read, by all means you don’t need to keep it a secret. Leave a comment if you want. I kinda like knowing who’s reading what I write.
