Bag Game

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

I saw this on sugar-trip’s blog, so I thought I’d give it a go. Here’s the blog with the “rules”: So here’s my purse. Taken with my phone which is usually in my purse. My digital camera batteries are dead :|

I’m a wicked packrat: lots of stuff, not a lot that’s useful often.


Downey’s improved tank!

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

When I bought Downey, I had this tank in mind. I hadn’t used it yet because it was kid of old & grody even after I cleaned & re-cleaned it. Just old & used.

I found the tank & top, but it was clearly missing a base- there’s a dome in the center for a light. (Which I vaguely remember… I can’t say what kind of fish we kept in it though.) I propped the front side up with CD cases because there’s a nub on the back.

[Ghetto, but happy fish. He’s behind the plant, being camera shy. Silly Downey!]

I was looking at it today, and it sunk in just how ghetto it looked, so I braved another trip to the basement. It is so nasty & smelly down there, but I found it. I cleaned the base and removed the now defunct light and pump. (Which was a surprise- I didn’t know it came with one.)

[Although I had to borrow some lighting from Bubbles’ tank, it still looks good.]

Downey is living large in his 2.5 gal hex tank. Bubbles is in a 1.5 cube & Momo is rocking a 1 gal drum bowl.

Crazy Hair!

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

This was pretty my ‘do since my mom made me cut it in 6th grade. I was 12 or so.
March ‘08 - Original, 22 years old.

(Notice the sad look like in weight-loss commercials. Haha!)

I’m wearing Hello Kitty pajama pants. :D

Phase 2 & 3 : Cut & Bleach

Phase 2 & 3 complete! With styling & light make-up.

Phase 4: COLOR!

My eye looks dumb in this one… but here it is!
The color was called “Bitchin’ Blue” but it turned teal b/c of the yellow-blonde. /shrug it was still awesome.

The Back

The Next Day (wearing my HK shirt)

April 6th 08, Day before my birthday!

The blue had pretty much faded out by now, and I’m rocking the blonde.
Oh, and I has a bukkit.

It stayed this way until late June (like 4 days ago lol)
until I changed it again!

June 21 08!

My Hair is on FIRE! :D

Update: New Fish’s Name

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

I’ve finally decided on a name for my new HM boy, after several suggestion from RL people & replies in the forums, I have settled on Downey. My friend had initially suggested it, seemingly in partial jest, but I loved it.  He does look very soft and feathery, downey almost. Some other suggestions include:

  • Corporal Noseworthy
  • Snuggles (In fabric softener mode :P)
  • Anvil (Black –> Rain –> Clouds –> Storms –> Anvil cloud)
  • Kanicory
  • Donnie Darko
  • Obsidian
  • Coal
  • Twilight
  • Dusk
  • Cumulonimbus

The best part is, I didn’t mention calling him Downey to my boyfriend, thinking the teasing would never cease if I did. I told him he needed a name so I get a text a few minutes later that reads:
“Name him Downey”

So that sealed the deal. I had liked the name anyway, so to honor one of my favorite actors, I’ve officially named him Downey. Woot!

New fishy #3

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

I’ve got it bad… this Betta addiction.

I bought another one this evening…
I haven’t officially decided on a name yet, but my friend that was shopping with me said his fins looked soft… so she said I should name him Downey. I grinned like crazy, especially with my recent fascination with Tony Stark *ahem*.

So w/o further ado, let me introduce to you… Unnamed!

(You can see Bubbles & Momo’s tanks in the background lol)Full details will be HERE, one I get to them. ;)

I just watched this movie- it’s strange if you’re not ready for it. Good though.
They randomly burst into song, just a heads up.

Mmm Fedora.

Baby turtle!

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

My mom had caught this baby painted turtle that was walking across the yard. (How Rich saw him is beyond me.) They decided to rescue him & make him a nice little home. Well, this poor little guy kept pushing against the side of the bowl toward the window through which he could see the lake.

After seeing how badly he wanted to get out, we let him go. I took him down to the shore & set him on a flat rock. The rock sloped gently into the water, giving him an easy access point. Picasso (ya know, he’s a *painted* turtle ;P) took his time & crawled to the water. Once he got swimming he shot off into the deeper water & disappeared.

Cute little guy! His belly is orange & red. Adorable! I’ll miss him, but he’ll be happier out there :D
