First day back at school went pretty well, it's kind of nice to see everyone again. Just that after 2 weeks of sleeping in 'till noon, 5:30 in the morning is gruesome. I did get a good laugh when I walked into the counseling center just in time to hear the one male S.B.O. say "and I'm wearing women's clothing." Before I can say anything he looks at me and says "You always come in at the wrong time.", and I just walk away before I hear any more about his antics over the break. (I found out later he was talking about a skit he's doing for the school dance at the end of the week.)
A couple of days ago I went down into the basement to get something out of the freezer and there, standing in the middle of the floor, is this little guy (see picture below). Now, I've seen his kin out in the wilds of Duchesne all the time up at the property, but I've never seen an urban one. How he got in the basement I have no idea, same for what he's been eating or doing down there for at least the 3 days I've known him. I also have no idea what to do with him, other than leave him alone. It's a little cold to set him free in the back yard, at least I think so. So, until I know better, I've got a new pet. I think I'll name him Platyrhinos.
