Rant! Petco is really convenient but the fish lady there drives me CRAZY. I went in there today for plants and I was telling her about my bettas dying and she said that she keeps them too. She has them in one gallon bowls and she says the only way she can keep them alive is by only changing their water monthly and feeding them once or twice a week. She kept stressing how beautiful they are. I find that very hard to believe.

Anyway, I got a new betta while I was there (he stole my heart!) and I asked her if I could re-use my heater from my old tank if I washed it really well or should I pick up another. She looked at me and said "Heaters?" and then she kinda rolled her eyes and said "Why do you have heaters?" and I said "Well they're tropical fish and my house gets cold." and she says "Mine are in ice cold water and they're fine. They're beautiful. You shouldn't be using a heater." So I say "Well, I do and I want to, so should I replace it?" and she says "No." and kinda rolls her eyes again.

So I immediately decide to replace the heater. :/

She LOVES my dog and she's the nicest lady but honestly? Monthly water changes, no heaters and fed once or twice a week?! It gave me the shudders.

I finished the book I was reading, and now I have to wait to get the next one T-T I mean, I'm buying it for 75 cents, but... I probably won't get it until next week. I REALLY hate waiting to finish stories, because I almost always lose interest a bit x.x;

Rant: I just woke up from a nap, and was totally convinced I had to go to work for about 10 minutes. Had a moment and missed the little "PM" next to the time... *facepalm*... I panicked for nothing. lol

I can't stand neighbors who blab stuff all over the neighborhood and then, when they get in trouble for it, try to blame someone else.

lol which is why I avoid my neighbors like the plague. Unless they're you know, throwing beer bottles in my yard from above, or playing with their dog loudly at 3 AM. For as much as I pay for this place I don't put up with that.

The Nebraska vs. K-state game was on today, and if you stepped outside you could hear my neighbors yelling at their TV.
Dude. Martinez can't hear you no matter how loud you yell. But I can. SHUT UP!
