omg Bekah I was SO calling you dee-jay-em-bekah. The djembe drums are super cool too (had to go to youtube). I think I will still call you djembekah (dee-jay) because even now I'm forgetting jem-bekah.. ack!
Spooky tooth is awesome :)
Laki is short for Lakitu which was the name of my first "real" betta. The one who got me started in this whole mess lol

Toad is my dog's name :) He's in my avatar.

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

When i set up my youtube account i let them randomly pick my user name, i picked the word red because i like the colour and then it randomly picked a bunch and i picked the best one so thats how i got megaredize i pronounce it mega red ize, ive seen other people have trouble with it. i guess i could have changed it once i started making videos but i kept it and i picked it for the forum name in case people saw me on youtube first and then found me here or vice versa. so it really doesnt mean anything. My name is Jessica lol

Mine is so obvious... Lol. My user is just named after my Betta who I love. (; Nothing really special. Haha

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Mine is a fun story. Back when I was in college, I was friends with a lot of japanese students. I took them all out to my parents' place with me one day, which happens to be a house boat on a relatively large lake. And I wasn't aware of this, but apparently lakes this large are uncommon where these girls were from, and they were totally awed by the size of it. I tried to get them to swim with me, but they weren't having any of it, said the water was too deep and too green. So I swam by myself. And I've never had swimming lessons or anything, but I've been around water always, so I guess I have a really natural swimming motion? And one of the girls tells me, "Ohmigosh, you aren't even human, you're a kappa!" and the name sort of stuck.

In explanation for people missing out on japanese mythology, a kappa is a water monster kind of like a turtle with a duck's beak, and a bowl in its head full of water that will die if you spill it.
