A sticky situation

It's been so freakin' long since I've posted anything! Life has been filled with hard work, great successes, and a couple of sticky situations.

There has been an ongoing situation at work that got progressively worse. I played by all the rules and trusted the powers that be to handle it fairly and stop it from continuing. I can only hope that it is over. Somehow, given the other party involved, I don't think so.

In the mean time I have been working my butt off retooling the Naked Kombat website. Gone are the boring "interviews" at the beginning, the same old "pony rides" and "spanking", and the same old sex punishing sex on the mat. The new videos have an edgy new look to them, keep the high energy up throughout and feature some interesting sex rounds (featuring all kinds of HOT fetishes like foot worship, puppy play, bondage, fisting). And there are lots of new faces and the return of some old favorites. Of course, I didn't mess with the wrestling portion of it. That is still the same, unscripted, real wrestling action that you can only find on Naked Kombat! The new videos should premiere on Wednesday, August 10th so check out the site if you're interested! Oh, and I'm starting up some new marketing campaigns to go with the revamped videos so look for those promos and ads.

You remember a while back I posted that I had taken my Roborovski Russian Dwarf Hamster "Bubba" to work and he was happy as a clam there. Well, as part of the crappy situation that was going on at work, he was stolen from his cage. Yes, I'm absolutely sure someone took him because there was NO WAY he could have gotten out. I've had him for about a year and a half, I think, and he was important to me. I really got to love the little guy, especially during and after my move to San Francisco. I wish I could think that it was an accident and that it wasn't intentional... but it was just the work of some really bad person with some really fucked up issues. My Buddhist side tells me to feel bad for that person and pray that they heal and become less bitter and insecure. It also tells me that Karma is a bitch and that person will have it returned on them. I won't tell you what my non-Buddhist, human side tells me. Why put any more bad energy out into the world.

Just as things were starting to get better at work, my co-worker comes to me with a box with a towel on top of it. At first I hoped it was Bubba, but when he opened it I hoped it wasn't Bubba. It was this disgusting looking, emaciated, little, black thing. It looked like the rotting corpse of a baby rat or a mouse. My coworker found it in a glue trap here at the Armory Building. He was completely stuck together with that horrible glue and couldn't move. It was hard to tell if he was even alive. I went online and researched what to do. After washing him with dishwashing liquid, I rubbed peanut butter all over him. It took most of the glue off and he was able to move around. The little guy never bit me once or tried to escape. It's been two days now and he is living in Bubba's old cage on my desk. I hope he's going to be ok and I hope he stays in my life for a while. I've included a photo of "Sticky", my new pet... mouse. At least I think he's a mouse.

Hi Nick,

Sorry to hear about the way things are going at work. Also sorry to hear about your hampster too. Though hampsters only live upto 3 years that doesn't mean they'll live to that age. Perhaps it died and someone took it because they didn't want to see get so upset over it. Then again, isn't there a cat that lives on the premesis? Remember, where ever a door closes, one opens. Finding it is often difficult, walking through it on the other hand, takes courage. You did a good deed taking on Sticky.

Hey Blacknoon... The cage was locked, there were no cats. No one admitted to seeing anything. Sorry to say, he was stolen. Sticky is going to be a good little friend, I think.

WHAT KIND OF HORRIBLE PERSON STEALS A PET?!? Karma will certainly catch up to them, too, especially if the person is mean to animals.

Jim said...

P.S. Sticky is lucky to have you :)

You're a good man, Nick. I am sure your hamster had a much better life with you caring for him. He served his purpose, though... got you through a rough period in your life. Perhaps he is doing the same for someone else now.

If you ever need (or want) to get a rodent out of a glue trap, olive oil will do the trick. Sometimes when I'm feeling it, I'll set a caught mouse free by pouring some on the trap - but not inside my apt.

I hate that the glue traps do indeed work- but they don't tell you what to do with an animal that you've caught but is terrified and alive.

If you ever want to get something stuck in a glue trap free, olive oil will do the trick. Pour some on and it'll be able to get free before long.

Not that I do this for every mouse caught, but sometimes it catches me in a forgiving mood. But never do it anywhere near your home!

Loved reading about Bubba and I hope that you will find him back somwhere. Hopefully someone isn't cruel with animals and will return him when his conciense takes the upper hand.
