Our lawn needs to be mown since the clover has started to flower, which of course has made all these bees hang around in our backyard.

Usually I look where I'm going as I walk around barefoot outside, and of course the only time I don't I stand on a bee and get stung.

I swore, flicked the stinger out, ran the cold hose over it and proceeded to tell the bees I was going to be mowing down their clover patch very shortly.

This is the first time I've ever been stung and we used to have a whole hive of them living in a tree in our yard at one point.

Bees really need to learn to fly out of the way faster.

Thanks for the prayers and good thoughts! I found out from a better source today that she's still on the vent and unconscious. Not sure if it's medically induced or not. They're hoping to check brain function tomorrow. She was down for quite awhile, so there could be some damage.

I'm sorry, Gossip. I was hoping to hear better news. At least they'll have a better idea what's going on when they check her brain functions.

How's it going, Gossip? Any updates?

And another petty rant from me. Blabbing ahead.

So I got grounded today for not walking the dogs when I wasn't even asked to. The parents (or rentals, as I like to call them when I'm mad) have been so grumpy lately... it's been such a pain. So yes. I'm grounded for a month (though I'm guessing that's bluff... they like to try and scare me, the jerks -.-) and supposedly there will be (or WOULD HAVE BEEN- it's a little late for that) other consquences... such as my phone taken away... which it has not been... or my computer taken away... which, again, obviously has not.

But a month? No... I'll go nuts if I don't get to hang with the bff and her bf and my bf... my friends in general... home's been really stressful lately; no one is seeming to get along all that well. I've not been the happiest... going out with friends lets me escape the house, is a way to escape the stress. I don't want to be caged in here for a month :(

That and I absolutely hate the fact that my parents bluff. You're going to scare me and then not carry out what you've said? Come on... that's a little low, don't you think?

Sigh...are there men in this world not designed to confuse? Men you won't cry over?
Also, I got blamed for the mystery snail dying. He couldn't live in the goldfish tank whilst the medication was happening, so I offered up my spare 5 gallon with a silk plant and some other stuff. I changed the water once for him, because I knew no one else was doing it. He died, either from starvation or dirty water, I'm not sure. I fed him occasionally, but I wasn't aware that I was supposed to be taking care of him because HE WASN'T MY SNAIL. Yes, he's in my tank, but that's like saying the landlord has to clean the tenant's flat. The owner of the snail should be the one caring for him, regardless of where he is living. Grr. And now I feel like it IS my fault.

On the plus side, I won $44 worth of Safe (3 and a bit more times more concentrated than Prime) at the fish raffle last night. :D

Life.

LittleBettaFish, Getting stung the first time is scary because you don't know if you are allergic. Glad you aren't.

Gossip, hoping for the best for your friend.

Betta Slave, I love that you call your parents "rentals."

Bombalurina, aww, I'm really sorry about the whole snail thing. :(

They come with both pause and mute buttons. They don't fart, don't steal the blankets, don't leave the loo lid up and don't complain about how I choose to spend my time and money. Absolutely perfect.

Ha ha ha ha ha..... Can we add Johnny Depp to your list?

Oh and I love your avatar!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
