Thanks sakura!:D

I hope I feel better by this weekend because we were planning a trip to richmond to go to bass pro shops to look at mostly gun stuff, and so I can buy my new shotgun some choke tubes (long story short the gave me three different tubes for double barrel >.<).

But I am toying with the idea of getting mice, though I doubt I can use my spare hammy cage as they'll probably squeeze through the bars. So mabey I'll buy the biggest critter keeper I can find or a 20 long if I can find a buck a gallon deal.:3

Do not get a critter keeper for mice... Long story short, mine chewed through the plastic top overnight, and my dad was not fond of mice in the house so they got caught with mouse traps. >_<

No computer on weekdays cause I'm trying to focus on studying! 5 hours a night folks. :(

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Oh I admire you Olympia!! Most of my research is online on the digital databases. so....

Snowballs came out okay. They're a little runny but in the coconut they're holding their shape and are edible. It was my first time making snowballs though so I am more than thrilled (especially considering the comments on the website I used of people having trouble!) I will be sharing them with my sister, niece and mom. Matt hates them- won't even try them. I bought him a Rolo bar lol

I'm afraid they'd get through the half inch spacing of the cage, or the gap at the top the little climbers they are! >.<" So I guess if I decide to get mice it'll be a tank or homemade bin cage. :3

Holy hell I think our house just nearly got struck by lighting. It was this massive crack and then all our television and stereo went off. It's odd as the actual storm is a little way away and so it just came out of nowhere.

Don't think the dogs will be getting their walk today.

I found a job in vermont that isnt THAT far from here where I can keep a pet in employee housing - which means I can get AWAY from my mother and keep Mr Bubbles with me. The 17 bettas, army of snails and 2 plecos on the ther hand....not so much. Oh and the chinchilla too

And why do none of the cruiselines have recruitments in the USA? Carnival had the nearest one in COLUMBIA and Royal Caribbean had one in Canada..maybe it was vice versa. Seriously, all I want is a simple job - like removing trays in the buffet dining room. Is that too much to ask?

Good luck Tiki!!

Kinetic, mice are powerful escape artists!! They can collapse their ribcages to fit through almost anything. On the other hand, one of my aging mice years ago lived on a shelf of my bookcase. No lies, he literally lived on it and never climbed/fell off. Lived to be a ripe old age too, his name was Reuben. ---pics somewhere of his awful bookcase home. (we were kids, my sister bred mice for fun and mom did not buy adequate cages for them all)

Did I mention I got my hockey tickets?? I cannot wait to surprise him tomorrow. It's 3am. I'm checking out. Night!!
