People would make fun of me it they knew

that I actually slept with my fish last night. I bought her yesterday and I am on "vacation" staying at my brothers house which is super air-conditioned. It was approaching 68 degrees so I grabbed her, tucked her under the covers with me, and I felt her snuggle up against my belly through the bag. ^^

What have you guys done that people would think you were crazy for?

People seem to find it strange that I talk to my fish, just like I would any other pet!

Why not have a plushie made of your fish bniebetta?

If I have drawn a picture for you, full size versions are available on my DA page

Talk about sleeping with the fishes! X3

I talk about the personalities of my pets, and talk to them. I also say goodnight to them every night. ;3

A couple of nights ago I was sitting next to two of my fish tanks (Neptune and Marius) and talking with the two boys. It was probably 11:00 at night and I couldn't sleep. I felt like someone was watching me from the bed (last I checked my boyfriend was asleep), and I see these two eyes staring at me like .
