Pretty much what my mum does, LOL! It doesn't really matter which size to me, just that she's actually on board! And that I don't have to pay for it
I was going to save up and get one anyways, so this just makes it a little easier! I'm thinking of going with a NPT for this one, with sand *GASP!* Even though I hate sand, I think it would be really pretty, and if I cycle it first WC would be much easier
Whenever someone asks what I want for any holiday I just kind of give them a look and they go "Oh, right, crazy fish lady, gotcha".
Me too! I totally agree with you. My mum is actually excited about it. I don't think I've sucked her into fish yet, but I do think she's getting there. She mostly just wants a really pretty yard decoration that I take care of- plus, we have a deal. I'm only letting her cut out Maple tree down if I get to put a pond in where it used to be. I really love that tree, but I do agree that it's rather annoying. It almost knocks our fence down, the roots are just everywhere, the leaves are pain in the behind in our little backyard and pool, and the branches are too wild to be tamed. But I do love the tree, and so long as the pond goes there and my mum plants another 15 trees (which she is, evergreens. Our neighbours smoke and I can't even keep my window open anymore because of it *eye roll*. She thinks they would help filter it), then I think we're good.
The Walking Dead started tonight! I actually wasn't super impressed by it- I've been calling this for years. My theory with zombies is the plague. The plague was first carried by tics on rats, which bit people and caused the plague. After 10 years, it became airborn. Now, while they did that in past seasons with the whole "if you die you become a zombie" thing, they have yet to incorporate an airborn disease that is passed on by breathing or touch, like the flu or common cold. I don't want to give spoilers, but they seem to be hinting at a new way of passing the disease by being around zombies too much. It could be as simple as low immune systems, but I like that they're doing that in the show (or might be, won't know til next week) and are looking at it more scientifically than many others do.
And back from scientific Elsewhere now. I have a lot of time on my hands to plan out a zombie apocalypse >.> So my family is partially German (I'm 1/8 on my dad's side) and my parents LOVE Oktoberfest. So this year my mum decided that we wouldn't have a Thanksgiving meal with our main family (my mum, dad, brother and I) but that we would have a little Oktoberfest with some Schnitzel and garlic mashed potatoes and cabbage and other things. Oh my, that was AWESOME! And tomorrow I get the day off work to go to my aunt's Thanksgiving dinner! Yay!
