Just last night I made a paella that was supposed to be half chicken, half rabbit. But I wussed out and made it all with chicken. I'd have happily tried the rabbit but my kids (esp. the youngest) would have freaked out on me if they learned I was feeding them Flopsy and Mopsy.

Finally heard a story that gives me a picture of my mom's parents as some straight up Immigrants Not Knowing The Ways of the Nation in the 60s.

They moved to the Boston area and couldn't find a suitable place to rent (they wanted a house and could only find apartments) so they found this cool setup with a rich WASP family. The family was going abroad for a year and wanted someone to live there and keep up the house/grounds.

On my grandpa's birthday they couldn't figure out what to make for a party (still not used to US grocery stores), and noticed some pheasants in the woods out back. So they threw corn on the ground, set up some little box traps, snapped some necks, and served roast pheasants for all. I'm just imagining some suburban Harvard Professor's Wife types when they put the pieces together about what these foreigners are feeding them and where it came from.

I often forget my grandpa grew up rural as fuck at basically the edge of the world.

I could have sworn we started a separate thread for the part where the animals get chopped up and eaten?

I was smart for once and kept my sassy mouth-hole shut tight.

Good thinking!

I have a few animal things

the roommate who has a dog is moving out and wants me to come with. That would be fun, debating whether I can justify the moving expenses and probably slightly more rent for a 2-bedroom vs a 1 bedroom. Also, if things are going well with the GF in a year or so, maybe we should get a place together? So should I just hang tight here for a year and save money? Or maybe the additional ~$100 a month is worth it just for the reduced stress of fewer roommates, slightly more room, etc.

- I am gonna feel a little guilty finding somebody to take my place in this apartment, on account of the rats. I've never seen any, they're definitely not getting into the apartment, but I hear them in the walls and ceiling constantly. Ugh.

- the GF is definitely 100% farm girl. She has casually mentioned that she believes if you get a dog you need at least three (one gets lonely, two means one dog is boss, three is a pack), little dogs are boring, and big dogs Need To Have Jobs. As long as you need jobs for the dogs you want, you can have a little herd of something.... sheep are really fun my gramma taught me to shear em and make yarn out of the wool. Goats are cute and they'll keep your yard neat. Chickens are funny to watch, plus fresh eggs. Oh by the way have I mentioned a cat or two to keep away pests and gosh rabbits are not much work...
She grew up in the NYC suburbs with lawyer parents but I guess the Minnesota and West Virginia roots stick around a generation, somehow.
