Yeah I saw him earlier too when I was looking at the PKs. I love his little freckles. So cute!

I liked this girl too, she's adorable.

He's definitely one I'd snatch if I could.

She's so cute! She almost looks like my Chihiro

So Roman tried to make a really, really tiny bubble nest and gave up. Too much duckweed maybe? Duckweed really likes his tank, along with Topaz's side of the 10g.

Random thought thinking of Roman, why aren't cellophane CTs a thing? Actually, why is it that CTs have the least amount of color types? I've seen solids, blue with red wash, grizzle, black orchid, and butterfly.. But not much else unless I look on AB.

Since it took to long to upload and I couldn't edit my last post to include this.. Here's a picture of Roman. I have to get another pack of silk plants.. His tank looks bare after taking the live plants out. If I didn't like this picture of Azure so much, this would be my profile picture.

Azure being.. Well.. Azure. His face kills me, it's so goofy. The bit of 'lipstick' he's developed is not helping me take him seriously. xD

If you could only imagine how long it takes me to upload pictures.. I started uploading these at 8:30..

8:45: I've decided to log my actions in the time it's taking to upload these pictures.. I can't think of anything for this log entry.

9:04: I've decided to make a cake. Lemon cake with vanilla frosting. Time to mix!

9:41: Still waiting for them to upload, and while I was waiting, I caught the flying ant and that has been in my room for days. Smacked the damn thing, picked it up while it was stunned, and fed it to Azure. Stay out of my room you flying a-holes! I also caught a pill bug that was crawling across my floor. Titan tried to eat it. I caught it and let it outside. They're not annoying. They're spared from being eaten by my fish, and get to live another day. Cake is almost done cooling off, looks yummy.

9:44: THEY'RE DONE. Just in time to put the icing my cake. >:D

Haven't had an inner ramble about life in a week or so... So ramble time.

I have respect for my mother.. I don't necessarily like my mother, she made my life very hard for me with some of the things she did, but she stood up to my father. My father was abusive, he was on drugs and he was a heavy drinker, and she stood up to him. I remember when I was a 7, up until I was 12, I wasn't allowed out of my room.. Things got really bad, and she wouldn't let me go out there because my father took over the whole house and was always belligerent. She would go out and face him to take me to school, and to cook when she wasn't too busy hating me for being his daughter, and to get me things to drink.. Someone with the balls to face a 6'3", 250 pound man when they're 4'10" and 90 pounds, and managed to keep their child sheltered enough to not realize what was going on deserves some respect. I don't need to like her, but I respect her for being strong enough to have gone through what she did and not lose herself completely. I didn't even know about any of that until I was 15.. I saw some of it but never understood.

She's been telling me more and more about what ended their marriage and what really happened the last week and a half, I guess because I'm old enough to understand at this point, and she knows I've been in serious relationships now. It's all very interesting to me. There was so much I didn't catch or understand back then.. I always thought maybe she was just mean to my father, he always played the victim card and made her out to be evil, but he deserved it..

A little insight into my life. I don't mind sharing these things, I'm an open book. I'm mostly just typing out my thoughts, it makes me feel a little better typing them out rather than just thinking about them over and over.

Wow, those pictures took forever to upload!

It's amazing the things we learn as adults about things that happened as children.

I've had Sebastian for maybe two months now, right... And I haven't tried pellets with him since the first headache he gave me with them.... Well.. He's eating them. Why didn't I try them again sooner!?
