furby ~squealing~

I woke up and went to the bathroom, hearing a high pitched squealing coming from the living room. Upon investigation the sound seemed to be coming from nowhere in particular...moving toward and away from the source to test frequency distortion didn't seem to yield accurate results, because it turned out the mutilated furby on one of the tv trays was making an even higher pitched noise and that somehow is creating the sensation of this other lower (but still squealing) frequency permeating the room.

I put it in my camera bag and that seems to have dealt with the sound (I don't want to turn it off!) and now I have a bag of sound-

When I open it the room fills with a very high pitched squealing of indeterminate source. I'll have to test it outside at some point to see if the same effect can be observed.

ha! it's furby story time...

I worked in CS at amazon, and then transferred to georgia. I left my green furby behind w/ a fellow CSer. apparently some time after I left, it broke, and started doing the squealing thing. She didn't have the necessary tools for disection, so she started jogging around the office (nightshift, mind you, so most of the lights were off) trying to find someone w/ a screwdriver, freaking out the whole floor in the process. she finally found someone w/ a leatherman on them and they put an end to the furby's misery.
