Have you seen this rat?

Last seen 02/05/10 in West Hollywood, CA eating pears off my kitchen table. May or may not be currently attached to a rat trap. May or may not be dead. Reward if found! Please e-mail Erin at livingandlovinginla@gmail.com with any information.

Now, as you can see, the rat is still on the loose. Exterminator Greg came back, and could not find the little outlaw anywhere. "Tricky little bastards," Exterminator Greg said, as he stood shaking his head.

I loved reading your comments on the whole rat situation...which I'm glad so many of you found so funny! It was supposed to be funny. If the Internet can't laugh at my pain and suffering, who can? And yes, I screamed and I was so scared I nearly peed my panties three times, but who cares? It made you laugh, and that's all that matters in my book.

The Boyfriend felt so bad about the rat in my house that he bought me these beautiful flowers:

Such a sweet boy. I love these Hawaiian flowers, they look fake!

And last night we got to go on a super fun double date with one of my best friends and her husband. We tried out R + D Kitchen's secret B.Y.O.B. policy, and it's true! It works! And best of all, there's no corkage fee! This also works at any of the Hillstone restaurants! I always love sharing a good tip.

So what are you waiting for!?! We have a rat on the loose! Get looking! And I'll see you back here tomorrow night for Meatless Monday!



  1. Yay...but if the rat is still around...who knows...she/he might get attracted to those flowers, too!!! Be aware! These little bastards are evil little things...very smart and very fast. Even with a trap around the neck or body or who knows where. And don't worry, even though it is funny and I had to laugh I feel sorry, too. I would have screamed and probably peed my pants, too. :D LOL...I probably would have ran away and out of the house...so yeah. No worries. ;)

    Happy Monday Erin.


  2. awwww that little picture of the rat is so cute!

  3. OMG...those flowers and the color....beautiful! So glad you had a wonderful time at dinner!

    Maybe the rat went on vacation...he he!

    Have a wonderful day Erin!


  4. oh my god! i would be dying!!!! my hubz and i had a mouse in our apartment once, except it was in OUR BED!!!!! OMG! i got into bed one night and i was like, "babe, wtf?! why are you getting into bed with your shoes on?" (i thought there was dirt in the bed)
    turns out, it was a whole pile of cookie crumbs! i dove out of bed and we cleaned the whole house. fortunately, all we had to do was make sure the trash was empty and leave no loose food lying around, like no open chip bags on the counter.. etc.. and no sign of him. but it was pretty funny lol

    i hope you find him. and when you do, make sure you try and train him to cook for you ... you could be famous! hahaha

  5. Ick, we have such a rat problem on the subways here! There's one stop where, if you're sitting at the front of the train, you are BOUND to see rats galore when the door opens. BLEGH!

  6. So, those beautiful flowers....did you know they're part of the pineapple family? And that peacock looking one is a Bird of Paradise? Random tidbits of knowledge after living on a tropical island for 3 years. *sigh*

    I hope you find your rat. I mean, I hope he's gone forever, but if not, I hope you find him soon and banish him.

    Love you!

  7. Wonder where he'll show up???

    Those flowers are gorgeous!
