The movie 9 super-mom review

For my birthday my daughter took me to a movie! Yeah movies! I wanted to see 9, so 9 it was.
At the end of the movie my daughter turned to me and apologized. "no, no" I said "I wanted to see this movie, so it's all my fault"
Looking back, it's the film makers who should apologize.
While the movie had acceptable animation (not fantastic, just acceptable) the plot was so nonsensical and so full of holes, I have to wonder, what were they thinking? Even the (non) pay off at the end was unsatisfactory.

Overrun with mice

The snake has been eating four mice at a time. Yesterday the mouse go-getter guy picked up four mice.
This morning I looked in the box and asked "didn't you get four mice?"
"Yes" said go-getter guy "Why?"
"Because there are only two in the box"
This lead to the great mouse hunt with furniture ripped from the walls and much cussing.
We may get them yet

update on mouse, update on job

The mouse leads a charmed life, someone at work has agreed to take the creature.
I have reapplied for my job and have been asked to return, it's good to be wanted, even if it's only for three days a week instead of full time.

Bad news or Good? You decide.

Friday the CEO at work announced everyone is FIRED. Clean out your office and drop off your keys. We have to reapply for our old jobs. I can't decide if I should just take the unemployment and run, or reapply and go back to work on a truncated work week, aaarg. What will I do with my work mouse? Pepita was always meant to stay at work, far far away from my vicious mighty hunter of a brain damaged cat. She may see the instead of the snake yet if I can't find someone to take her.
