Wow! I just spent half an hour entranced by a plethora of unusual jello salad recipes, a 1920s account of uncanny valley plastic surgery results and a comprehensive history of home pregnancy tests. I can see myself wasting a lot of time on this site.

I was the mouse that year.

It was in brown instead of grey, but there's a photo of me running around in a mouse costume that is eerily similar.
