Little Companion

Today I finally bought a mouse. Two, actually. One for me, and one for my younger sister. I have been wanting to for awhile, and I finally made the purchase. My mouse is black and white, and hers is all black. They are both males, and very tiny and curious. We spent a good 90 minutes trying to decide on names, first coming up with famous pair names, then finally decided that they would be separated, so we gave them separate names, Terrence and Pablo. Terrence, first of all, because it is Steve McQueen's birth name. Second of all, my friend, Trent, suggested it as a name of a pet that I would have. Pablo is originally named after Pablo Picasso, but my sister just likes the name. Anyway, Terrence will be living with me at college in one week, it'll be interesting to see how the trip goes.
