Here's a Behind the Scenes secret for you: We have a teensy weensy bit of a mouse "issue" here at Channel 7. We're not sure where they come from, but mice seem to like us. We don't see them every day. But once in a while, one will make a run for it across the newsroom! (Brave little guys, huh?)

Yesterday... our boss Jim spotted one of our little friends in his office. He was hiding under the leather couch!

So - the task force went into Mouse Mode!
(What that means is, basically, we all squealed and jumped around and Lisa caught him in the trash can)

Turns out he was a cute little thing... so we carefully carried him out to freedom...

...and let him go in the KTVB Garden (which is a nice way of referring to our bushes) - with strict instructions to avoid the connector! (It's very close by...)

(Stuart Little goes free - yay!)

Another cool thing happened yesterday...
I was having lunch with some friends at Bardenay downtown - when my friend Molly spotted Guy Fieri from The Food Network right outside Bar Gernika! He is in town to shoot his show - and by the way, he LOVES the croquettas.

Well, Molly loves Guy and ran over to stalk the poor man. He was so nice, and even agreed to a picture with her!

Guy was also kind enough to let KTVB interview him on the job! He'll be in town for the next few days - you may just see him out and about...
