|Rats in the News

Berkeley Daily Planet, but still! It was about a union standoff that used one of the inflatable rats that I reported about; it was viciously slashed and left crumpled on the sidewalk. Sadly, the online version lacks the photos of the semi-deflated rat. This morning at the coffee shop, I saw a rat story headlining the newspaper. Okay, so it was the local |
A cool thing is that the article notes that locals have come to like having a giant rat in their neighborhood: “People have developed a lot of affection for the rat,” Parker said. “I’ve seen parents bring their children by and lift them up so they can shake his hands. There were even carolers singing around him at Christmas.”
I was asked to host the rodent panel at FC (Less than two weeks away! Yipe!). Last year, harlequeen was kind enough to assist and provide the squirrel point of view. I hope to see him again as well as all my rodent and rodent-friendly friends!
Question with the Rodent Panel. Would rabbits be apart of it?
Rabbits are surely welcome, though I think there's a separate panel for lapines.
Good question, I have not seen one yet.
Hope to see ya there, Bunster! *hugs*
Yes! I will see you there! *hugs*
BTW, the offer to wear Riptooth at FC still holds :) Luphinus made him a really nice Tabard with the Skaven symbol on it :D Black and Red and silver.
Certainly! I have no idea what my at-con schedule's gonna be like, though, so we'll have to play it by ear.
Woe! Woe! I shall not be there. Much crying shall be had by my missing it.
Woe indeed! I shall be bummed, but carry on.
I'll be at FC, and I'll proudly be at the Rodent Panel wit' mah rodent homies! :o)
I look forward to the rodent panel very much. Last year was much fun.
Sadly not. There was some interest but I really don't have enough time to schedule it properly and I would have to basically pay for another night at the hotel to have time to set it all up.
A shame, really. I liked the idea. If you're in the area after, though, I'd be happy to take a trip to the cheese shop for like a Monday evening thing.
Yup. They have ever since... well, last year.
I'm not sure exactly what is supposed to happen at the species (or familia, I guess) panels, so I'm just bringing along various rat-related stuff. I'm hoping other rodents will show up with stuff to share about their species, too!
