Lappy Meets Maccy.


Roxie likes to float at the corner of the tank. It kind of freaks me out, so I took a picture. The first picture is her swimming around like she is the happiest fish in the world This picutre shows her new favorite position in the tank! She looks dead. What a weirdo.

She is still in her temporary tank, because I haven't tested the water in the new tank yet. I did clean it with soap because the tank was so gross, so I am hesitant to put her back in there, since you are definitely not supposed to use soap!! oh well. She likes her new purple tank!

Maccy has arrive!! It's so cute, pictures to come!!! Maccy has meet Lappy and everyone is getting alone well.

Roxie update: She has been having some rough nights, she just kind of floats at the top and then swims around when I tap the tank. I'm a little worried she is sick. Maybe she is just tired. Who knows.

new books

Have you ever fallen in love with a character from a book? I have. I think this might be part of my problem: loving fictional characters and unavailable men. I am reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult and I think I am in love with Oliver the lawyer for the 18 year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome who is charged with murdering his Tutor. There is something about Oliver that just makes me smile. I also picture him as being adorable so that helps!

I usually read older Jodi Picoult books that I find at the library or on the sale rack at the used book store for $1. However, last weekend I bought the new hardcovered book at borders after it came out the Tuesday before!! Call me crazy...

RIP Callie!!! Nov 2009-Mar 2010

I had a fish emergency this morning. Callie died this morning. I just could not come to terms with flushing her at that moment. I decided to wait a little before getting up the nerve to perform the burial at sea. Jen and I finally faced the music and flushed poor little Callie. RIP CALLIE...It was nice knowing you.....Unfortuntely this is the best picture I have of Callie, she was a little camera shy. She is the black one behind the rock. Roxie is the camera hog.

Eharmony (EH) update: Not much to report. I am quitting at the end of the month. It's been fun, but it is over. Matt did finally email me back after 6 days, which is like 20 years in EH world, since really all you have to do is hit reply and type a few sentences. I'm not asking for a novel! So, I am playing his game and not writing him right back...even though I want to and don't want to wait too long that he forgets about me.

I'm reading the new Jodi Picoult book. House Rules. It's outstanding. Here is the link to read more about her new book.

Happy Birthday Ben!!!
