I HATE PetSmart. This woman that's always working and knows nothing gave me 2 Hornwarts when I specifically asked for 2 Cabomba's- that's an extra 2 bucks, PLUS needles to clean up! YIPPEE! -_- At least I got a GIANT Anubias. She thought it was a Java Fern. I was like "Well you can charge me that" and she's like "Oh, no, you're right" and I'm like mhm you have no idea. Anyshway, everyone is doing good here and yatta yatta.
Oh, I have exciting news for Christmas! For most of my life, I've always dreamed of having an old 19th century type-writer, and our antique shop is selling one
I've mentioned it to my mum and she's considering it! She also said that a 20g is totally possibly for Christmas as well! Gah! Yay!
Oh, AND! AND! (This was a pretty great day, BTW) my mum said if I either don't get picked to go on the trip or decide not to go (I still have no idea. I mean, a whole year is a long time) that this spring she and my dad will be redoing the backyard and there's room for a pond! It'll be my 16th birthday this year, and everyone I know is asking for a car, so my asking for my mum to chip in on a pond is a MUCH better deal, LOL! I really find it ridiculous that people get a car at 16. I mean, you can't even drive on your own until 17, so it seems kind of pointless to me. ANYWAYS! I never thought I would actually get a pond in my backyard, and my grandmother has previously said she would love to buy me decent breeding stock pond fish for my birthday (20 or 30 bucks each for a Shubunkin. Oi, it's steep!) so if this ever did happen it would be fabulous! In case you couldn't tell, I am a planner and a researcher. I have the desire to know every possible outcome for ANYTHING that can happen, even if it's a slight chance. So that's why I'm so excited about this!
So after this really long post, I would like to just put in that I LOVE Halloween City. It's a store that's only around at Halloween, and it's AMAZING! We spent like a hundred bucks there on coffins and gags and stickers and costumes. I got some AWESOME gore prosthetic eye covers and slit throat things, so I'm super excited for Halloween this year!
So, as promised, here are the pictures!
