... double-bagging a dead rodent and putting it in your freezer for safe-keeping.

My awesome neighbour-flatmate (aka best girl) has an awesome ratter kitty, Fatpants. Fatpants has taken to regularly gifting Best Girl with a dead rat on the back yard path every week or so, and after the last one I said "would it be weird if I asked you to stick the next one in the freezer until I can collect it so I can have the skull?" and best girl gave me her best "you are a fucking nutjob weirdo and I can't believe we're friends" look, (which I am VERY familiar with), and said "Ew".

This morning I went over to make Sunday brunch of wholemeal banana pancakes with cinnamon-honey ricotta (om nom nom) and was amazed and delighted when best girl said "Oh, by the way, there's a dead rat in the freezer for you and you better take it with you when you leave today". Sure enough, sealed inside two sturdy ziplock baggies, there was a very dead, rather frozen, rat, which I dutifully and gratefully brought home with me and is now continuing it's death in my freezer.

I just spent the last half hour or so reading articles and blogs on how best to skeletonise a corpse. As you do. cut for detailed unpleasant progression of topic, don't read it if you're remotely squeamish )
I have the best best-girl ever...
House for sale in Glebe has my dream bedroom... the slanted pressed tin ceiling, the attic sloped alcove walls, the polished floor boards, the floor to ceiling timber sash windows, the side windows, the view, even the teeny ensuite bathroom so you don't have to walk down 4 flights of stairs to pee in the middle of the night.... I love it all. Love love love.
