Well, yeah.

I am not a good pet owner.

The other night I took out our gerbil, Sushi, from his cage and put him in his exercise ball to run around the living room.

I promptly forgot about him. One of my roommates (not sure who) rescued him and placed him back in his cage. *sigh* I felt very bad.

If you haven’t seen the new Weird Al video, White and Nerdy, you really must. For all of us nerds, geeks, and brains, this is especially poignant. When I was in middle school my group of friends was obsessed with Weird Al. We had one tape that we would pass around the group, taking turns listening to it.

Explains a bit about me, huh? 😀

  1. Oh man, poor Sushi! How did you forget about him?!

    Yeah, when I was young, Weird Al was the S**t. Eat It? Come on…has there been a better song written, ever?

  2. Hehe, I can definitely relate.

    Weird Al was a staple at the all-night RISK parties (the epitome of nerdiness) my friends had back in 5th and 6th grade. I saw the White and Nerdy vid @ the gym last week and got a good chuckle — but it still has nothing on my classic faves: Fat, Amish Paradise, Pretty Fly for a Rabbi, Eat It, It’s All About the Pentiums, and Gump.
