Okay, since I've been gone a week, I'm just going to respond to everyone in this post.
@Kath: Crap, doctors can be kinda stupid, can't they >.< when my dad had his kidney taken out, they wheeled him away from his pain medication to do some tests in another room. That would've been fine, except that they forgot about him and freaking LEFT him there!
@Pee3: I can't believe I missed a lemon bar reference D: I started thaaaaat.
Anyway, whoever laughed at the person who dropped them in their cart, I solute you.
i have TWO rants about my local pet store. im seriously irritated.
two weeks ago, i stopped by to pick up some heaters. i couldn't locate them so i went up to an employee and asked where the heaters were. he asked me what they were for, i said a betta in a 5 gallon. he put on a bewildered face and told me that i must be confused. he proceeded to take me over to the aquariums. he pointed at the tropical fish section and told me "these are tropical fish, so THEY need to be in about 78 degrees" then he took me over to the GOLDFISH, and told me "but THESE fish need cold water, just like the bettas." um.. if you are working in a petstore, you should AT LEAST know that bettas are TROPICAL fish. are you kidding me?
then, again yesterday i went to the same petstore to buy a betta. as i was at the cash register paying, the employee casually asked me "so do you fight them?" (she knows i own a few bettas since ive been there a few times to buy bettas). like, are you serious? she asked that as if it was NORMAL...
IKR? I was disappointed in my favorite employee (always greets me and my mom, talks to us about pets) when I got Powder and his five-gallon. She told me that he'd get stressed out with all of the space :P
Getting nervous about this move. Finally found a co-signer, so I think I'm good to go for this apartment. What I AM worried about is letting my little buddy Rikku go. My boyfriend is taking him, but he's shown little to no interest in how to care for him. He's such a great little personality to have around, and I don't want to see him suffer. I'm going to have to MAKE the boyfriend sit down and watch me change water and perform basic care.
Oh, no! Are you putting anything on it now? I got burned one time when I was in college, up in the mountains where the sun was strong. I had trouble sleeping because I burned both sides of my legs. I put cool rags on my legs and that helped.
