Bekah, YES! Meet real people, not just people online. Go girl, go!

Yuuie, hope it feels better.

Okay, guess I'll head off to bed too. Or eat more Reeses peanut butter cups. One or the other.

G'night, my friends.

Every year this robin builds his nest in the worst place- on our laundry line. And every year we argue with him "no Mr Robin don't put your nest here -pushes half built nest down-." But Mr Robin never listens and he always gets the best of us. After that it basically becomes our duty to ruin our porch to put up enough things to block the view of said nest from the general public, as one year a raven took the babies. Last year we couldn't really use most of out porch even. We know it's him cause the tip of his tail is white which is odd.
We now hold a time share on the laundry line and can only use it when he is away.
Mr Robin found himself some guardians.
Well played Mr Robin.

Sakura, I only have the salt on hand. You think I should treat them with the salt? Do a salt dip or just treat them/do daily 100% water changes?

What a fun story Olympia!! how many years do robins live? Bc she'll probably teach her babies to make similar nests close to homes for protection, though not everybody will be as easy as you guys.

Yea, not sure how others would take it. o.O
Says on Wikipedia that the average is 2 years, but this is because 75% of babies die in their first year. Once they hit adulthood up to 14 years is recorded. :o

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

Wow. Such a sin, good thing this white tail-tipped one has an extra chance with hers :)

I'm already bored with nothing to do. I should clean my house. Tomorrow I call my old food court job and try to get my job back... Even though I passed them my retail resume (I model all my resumes to different types of jobs) I hope they take me back. I need money :<

Found a Canadian supplier for soap stuff so shipping is $25 instead of $65 now. And I got way more stuff in the cart. O.o Gonna have to send out testers to see what smells to do. xD

Ate 2 large bowls of soup with pasta and rice in it. It feels like my stomach is about to explode. Going to read and probably fall asleep.

One of my RCS is berrying! What does it mean if her eggs are a dark color?
