Thanks to everyone who stopped by The Royale last night for Dining out For Life. We all had a super-swell time, especially later on into the evening.
Nothing quite makes a party like someone doing a Fred Berry imitation to a Captain and Tenille song.
I won't name names -- but it wasn't me.
Photos will go up after work today!

Okay....so here's the rub: the event featured below is tomorrow and my ass will be there because that's part of the deal I made when I sold my soul for some publicity.
Still -- by no means do I endorse the usage of the words "movers and shakers, cool quotient" or "Melanie Moon."
I will, of course, take pictures. But that's it. My fifteen minutes are officially over. Praise Jesus - and pass the plate. I gotta bus to catch and need some bus fare. I may be a cool single, but my ass is still broke and my bike is in the shop.....

What a week it has been -- and what a week the next one will be, too!
I'm tickled to say that the new job is swell and that I'm mighty-satisfied with it. There's all sorts of things I could chat about at the moment -- but I think I'll spare y'all that. For the moment.
I'll get around to posting with more frequency in another week or so.
Thanks for stopping by....

So, it turns out that my Alma Mater is spending the money that I'm not paying Sallie Mae this month by conducting fascinating research that I'm glad I'm not paying for!
Male Mice Sing When Females NearSo....for all y'all that think musicals are stupid because "nobody just bursts out into song," here's proof that even rodents can have Moulin Rouge moments, too!
Scientists have known for decades that male lab mice produce high-frequency sounds - undetectable by human ears - when they pick up the scent of a female mouse. This high-pitched babble is presumably for courtship, although scientists are not certain.
But it turns out those sounds are more complex and interesting than previously thought.
...the mice sounds met two key criteria for song - distinct syllables and recurring themes, "like the melodic hook in a catchy tune."
Still, lab rats acting like smitten-kittens brings me no joy. Poor l'il critters can't have much to hope for, after all.
They may be in love -- but they're still lab rats.
Talk about Lookin' for love in all the wrong places...
