    1. Michael Hiteshew Says:

      That mouse dresses better than I do.

    2. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Looks uncommonly like the waiting area for the pharmacy pick-up at the Med Clinic at Fort Sam Houston. Only they have CNN (spit) on the tee-vee.

      And yes – I always bring my Kindle. I can usually get through at least a couple of chapters of whatever I am reading on it.

    3. Grurray Says:

      Stuart Little is definitely an improvement over CNN, but the color scheme may be a little too matchy-matchy.

    4. Will Says:

      A promising series, it’ll be interesting to see where we go.

      Reminds me that I’ve recently trapped 13 mice in my kitchen. Stuart Little’s progeny are nothing if not prolific.

    6. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Chuck … umm. There are solutions to that kind of situation. Cats. Do you have friend that can loan you one?

      I hate it when there is a telly flickering and yelling in a waiting room. Or even worse, button-holing you in a queue. And I hate supermarkets that play muzak.

    8. Nathaniel Lauterbach Says:

      Waiting rooms are a product of 20th century Taylorism applied to human cattle.

      Note the presence of the telescreen.

      Why do we do this to ourselves?

    9. chuck Says:

      @Sgt. Mom, I have two cats. They catch mice outdoors, bring some of them in to play with, and now and then a mouse escapes. Yes, I think the cats are responsible for the mice, one cat in particular. The mice then hang out under the stove and move around inside the cabinets and over the counter tops where the cats can’t get at them. I haven’t figured out how the mice get some of the places they go, there must be a Houdini gene in the local population.

      The noise of a telly doesn’t help reading on a Kindle.

      Sgt. Mom, I recently did the Kindle update, and found out that I didn’t like the fonts. The Helvetica font is much thinner in the update, which is not to my liking. OTOH, they did add two fonts.

    11. Will Says:

      But wait, what about the screaming television screens now installed at the gas pumps?

      True story: Mouse in the toaster at the crash-pad, party house we hung at in the seventies. Discovered by someone inserting bread and a smoking mouse arcing out over the table. Much laughter. Great waiting room anecdote.
