My plants arrived today from Singapore! So exciting
I was scared that they would be confiscated by customs, but they arrived in beautiful condition, and earlier than I expected!
So, I was having a great day until my roommate informed me that no one will flirt with me because I seem mean and nasty, and always look angry
Really?! She's probably right - but I always thought that I seemed nice and friendly
The rest of my family looks angry all the time, so I wouldn't doubt that I look that way, but in fact I am very rarely angry. When I do get angry, it's very brief and usually a result of a customer being extremely nasty to me (which doesn't happen all that often).
I went back to Petco (it's a sickness, I know) under the pretense of getting dechlorinator, because I didn't have enough to do water changes on Sunday; but really
what I was doing was scoping out A) the bettas (and I found a gorgeous
one, but didn't bring him home as I have nothing to put him in), B) the plants, and C) the mopani. The Universe, it seems, had placed a piece of mopani on the shelf just for me - it is long and skinny, but has a fat base, so it stands on end. PERFECT for Percy's cylindrical tank! His home had been looking a little (a lot!) dull, so I did some work on it:
I think if I find a tank tomorrow at the community yard sale for a good price, I'm going to go back for that little fish I saw today - he's a veiltale, and a light lilac color with purple iridescent fins. He's gorgeous, and looks like none of my guys (not that it matters lol). Of course, almost every fish I bring home changes color after, so who knows...
