Long story.....

One of our internal auditors was in our office the other day when she saw a mouse scurry along the wall, and of course she was off the floor and on a chair screaming. So today I brought in a plastic mouse and left it for her on her desk and scared the crap out of her again. My boss thought that was hilarious and thinks I should make a computer mouse out of the fake mouse, so I started doing some research to see how many people actually do that. I found a guy that actually does it here.

That's kinda cool, in a it's-really-cool-when-it's-not-mine type of way ... almost like babies.

Now if you could get it to squeek when you press the button -- that would be priceless.

It's times like this I wish I'd have read more books like "Of Mice and Men".

It's a wonderful book, but very sad. I cried lots and lots when I read it - couldn't believe that school would make me read something so profoundly misery-inducing. Still, a great work - and never too late to pick it up, joe :D though I think you'll find it scant in the 'make mouse out of mouse' blueprints department.

I think he was referring to the title more then the content of the book... at least that's how that post makes sense to me...

The direction of the topic title and content made me think of the book title, but having never read the book I have no idea if it's related. :D

School had me reading books like Hatchet and LOTR. It's been at least 10 years since I've read a novel, and considering the state of the US economy, now is probably a better time than any to get around to reading Of Mice and Men based on what Wikipedia has to say about it. :)

Good point dM!

I remember reading Hatchet, and and even the other two books in the series. Another good dystopian book I remember reading was The Giver, that is a pretty deep book for being made for elementary schoolers.
