The world’s fattest mouse has come to live with me. I’m fostering him until he finds his forever home (hint hint if you want an adorable fat and cuddly mouse and you’re in VIC, Australia!!).

His name is Goldmember because of his beautiful colour, but we’ve been calling him Diabeetus because of reasons. He’s really lovely haha, and less mobile than other mice because of his massive girth, which just means he’s nicer to pat and cuddle! He doesn’t run on his wheel much so it’s not super interesting to watch, but he’s verrry cute and cuddly.

I took quick comparison photo of him next to Milo but they hate each other so Milo is puffed up and Diabeetus is stretched out to stare angrily at him and so he doesn’t look as massive as he is…

(Just FYI, mice of this colour have a genetic disposition to obesity)

Friday night freak show

Just some random junk from my mind..

-not many things can top freshly washed sheets in my opinion. Mmm Downy :)

-“Austin Powers-Goldmember” is on TV..and I’m watching it.
I’ve never seen any of them. I’m not exactly sure why I’m watching it…

-I went through my stuff for the second time in the past 3 weeks..organized stuff..and gave more clothes away.. And it felt good! :) I don’t like keeping stuff just to keep it.

-I’m exhausted. The last two days I was woken up before my alarm went off..so I didn’t get to sleep in like I wanted too.

-sometimes, no matter how hard it may seem, you just gotta get back up. No matter how hard you got hit. It might be slowly that you get up, but at least you didn’t stay down.

Charles Trenet - Beyond the Sea

"Beyond the Sea" is a 1946 contemporary pop romantic love song by Charles Trenet, with music taken from his song "La Mer" and lyrics by Jack Lawrence.

It has been recorded by many artists, but Bobby Darin’s version released in 1959 is the best known by many, reaching no.6 on the Billboard Hot 100, no.15 on the US R&B Chart, and no. 8 in the UK Singles Chart.

Bobby Darin’s recording has been used in films, TV shows, and video games, including Apollo 13, Austin Powers in Goldmember, Diner, Goodfellas, Black Rain, The X-Files, Lost, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, Finding Nemo, and BioShock.

Kevin Spacey sang the song in the movie Beyond the Sea, a biopic about Bobby Darin, in a “fantasy” sequence leading up to his marriage to Sandra Dee.
