I got enough of a view of it to know it wasn't a mouse; at first I actually thought it was a cockroach. Few things are more undesireable than a four (or more) legged creature scurring quickly out of view. Despite my disgust, I really wanted to watch the weather so I decided to deal with it later. I took my normal seat (feet up mind you) for a few minutes of precieved normalcy.

Without luck in locating our new friend, I continued about my daily routine, waiting for Em to wake so I could brief her. It wasn't two minutes after she emerged that I spotted the illusive critter hanging out by the baseboard outside kitchen. I utilized some sneaky ninja moves to walk past him and grab the tupperware (I'd have prefered to let the poor thing go outside rather than outright squishing him - at this point we were practically old friends).
Not long after this photo was taken a phonebook was added on top for good measure. I was running behind for work and we thought Bruce, the apartment maintanence man, would be by that morning and be willing to ablidge two female tenants. Bruce, however, got tied up and had to reschedule and poor Em did the deed herself (my hero!)
The rest of the day consisted of work (something about Friday the 13th must have given people an unspoken right to be extra mean), and an impromptu concert with my good friend Bekah.
Amos Lee was headlining at the Down by the River Festival Friday night and Bekah was given two tickets to go. We arrived a few hours before he was scheduled to begin, and much to my surprise I discovered Chris Thile from Nickel Creek breaking it down on stage. Awesome.

Despite the connotations, I don't believe Friday the 13th has to be a bad thing.
