Aw I'm sorry to hear DQ!! :(
The PS bettas here are generally of good stock (for mill bettas) they have to travel longer and in harsher weather so I'm sure the stores order a lot more than what ends up on the shelf and write the dead ones off in credit. Poor things.
YOU'RE BACK AAHNEY!! no, I didn't particularly like gummy oatmeal but I grew up poor and so I'm not picky. I used to eat cold, unheated tvp (textured vegetable protein) chili base at school.. THAT was discusting. The oatmeal made the hunger go away. Plus it upped my fibre intake. I didn't bring a microwavable mug to heat the water so I added my water to the oatmeal (packs of the instant stuff) and microwaved that for about a minute and a half.
Oh how I love you, TV on DVD. Now I can watch almost all the old shows I loved in high school! I loved all the low-budge shows they filmed in Australia. Lost World, Jack of All Trades. Just got Invisible Man with Vincent Ventresca. I loved that show. Boy was I stoked to find out at least hte first season anyway is on DVD and oh how I love you Amazon, it was 80% off.
Just wrote my folklore test on early accounts of Beothuk and Mi'kmaq natives in Newfoundland. I wish the Beothuk could have stuck around (they were entirely wiped out by Europeans. In fact, the whole we made them extinct thing has some complications) They had an interesting way of life.
