Ah yet again I go like a month without posting anything ><! I R getting lazy again or something. It’s been a busy month though. And somehow lots of stuff has been going on to make my life seem a little less boring ^^. So I guess lets start off where we left off:
Last I spoke it was the day before my birthday. I was really expecting it to be crappy since yet again anything I planned on doing to have a good day just wasn’t going to happen…. and it figures something I did plan on ends up making the day pretty awesome.
Joe was sweet enough to call out of work for the day so he could spend time with me ^^. Christina called up and decided to hang out with us and get us out of the house. She said she’d buy me a new post for my lip piercing since I keep loosing the little screw thingy for mine ><. So we ended up going to Tattoo Mania where Jay works cause they have better crap then what you’ll find at the local Hot Topic. Long story short I end up walking out with a tattoo XD. Got two little stars on the side of my neck <3.
Picture of when it was finished… looks much better now that it’s healed and not red XD. Strange I feel as if I’ve always had it too. I feel I’ve made a good choice. And it’s very true… once you get one you’ll want more… I have huge plans for my back now. Just have to not be lazy and draw the damn thing up. it’ll definitely take a while to do anyway though.
Soooo after Tattoo time we went to a Thai restaurant and had curry!! Yay!! and then bubble tea!! Wooot! teh EnD.
More #$%@ing Fish
Ah yes… fish. I’ll be very picture happy on this one. Sooo I’ve started my breeding process again. I wish bettas were far easier to breed but no… they have to be bitches. I’ve had a couple of successful “spawns” which have either resulted in the two stupid fish not doing it right so the eggs were unfertalized OR the female decided to be a bitch and eat them all OR the male is just not interested in sex at all… WTH. I have Homosexual fish? I blame it on the fact that I’m working with virgin fish who have no idea how the sex thing works so it takes a long time to figure it out. Stupid fish. I’ll probably start setting up multiple breeding containers soon as it’s becoming very time consuming trying out one pair at a time and some males take longer to get the whole spawning idea than others. Lets just hope Joe doesn’t decide to kill me with all the fish I bring home. Here is my new stock:
This is Yuki, Opaque platinum HM male.
Marble, a blue mask marble HM male.
Panda, Black and White Marble HMPK male (coming June 1st).
Oni, Black Devil Blue Mask OHM male (coming June 1st).
Ame, Steel Blue HM Female (coming June 1st).
Yes many of my fish are in transit now… mainly because it cost less to ship them all at once so I’d rather wait 2 more weeks then spend $30 to get each shipped separately. Ame and Oni will make cute little melano black babies (if my genetic calculations are correct *fails*). Figures I want black betta fish… one of the hardest colors to breed for XD.
Yuki and moon have already been introduced before but she got ripped up pretty bad by Yuki so I’m giving her time to heal back up and get fat again (another spawn failure, spewed eggs all over the tank = yummy fish snack). Annnnnd Panda is coming with a free sibling female cause I’m awesome at bargain shopping (even with fish).
All of these not even counting the little lovelies I just keep as pets… you don’t want to know how many betta fish I have XD. teh EnD.
Soo…. really I’ve just been working… a LOT. I like making money. Somehow between paychecks, tax checks and my federal stimulus check I’ve managed to keep a decent amount in the bank (and buy lots of fish at the same time). I’ve been feeling a lot better with that type of security. Just difficult trying not to spend it all XD.
Joe and I have been tossing around the “lets get and apartment” idea so I guess thats the new goal. He’s found a few good potential job opportunities that would make that possible… but if any of it’s going to happen it won’t be for a little while. I think in another year we’ll be in pretty good shape to start apartment hunting. Apartment = more room for fish bwahahahahahaha.
I got stuck with another little kitten situation T-T. Some people at work brought in a 5 day old kitten they found in their yard. Christina called me up and asked me if I would take it (since I’ve raised like 24579384 billion kittens by now) which I only agreed to if they couldn’t find any other place to take it. John had to step in and agree to take care of the thing before they tried any of the other resources I suggested… and John forgets to feed his snakes that only eat once a week, let alone a kitten that has to be fed every 2 hours. So I ended up taking the damn thing anyway.
In the one hour that he was in possession of it some crazy lady said she wanted it but didn’t have time to do all the bottle feedings or take it to the vet so John agreed to take care of it for 2 weeks (yea ok…) and then give it to her… mean while the kitten really won’t be ready for a “home” for about another 4 weeks AND needs vet care… it was being fed improperly and with cold milk and developed an obvious respiratory infection. I figured this poor little thing was going to run me like $200 at the vet’s office easy… not to mention an extreme lack of sleep. When we brought the cat home and Joe’s sister fell instantly in love with it and snatched it away XD. She’s been doing all the bottle feeding for it since AND took it promptly to the vet to get it some antibiotics, a de-worming, and the feline AIDS leukemia testing. Her and her husband were talking the night before about how they should get a cat or something so she took this as a “sign” that this was the cat they’re suppose to have. Shes very good with the kitten though and shes not working right now so she has all the time in the world to tend to it. There is no way in hell I would take the kitten out of the hands of someone willing to accept all the work and responsibility just to give it to some woman who offered to take the kitten on impulse but didn’t want to have to raise it or even cover basic vet care. So now I’m gonna have this crazy woman up my butt about “WTH that kitten is MINE! You can’t just give it away I got it first blah blah blah”. She’s already called the store three times after finding out John gave up the care to me. I just know it’s going to turn into one big dramatic head ache. I’m really just not looking forward to it T-T. I feel like I should just say the thing died of the infection. Oops, no more cat! Seems rather mean though. I hate lying too ><! Might be for the best though, get this crazy woman of my back and the kitten stays in a proper home.
Holy crap I’ve been working out. Joe and I bought Bikes :D. Sound kind of stupid but it actually has been working out pretty good. Joe is quite obviously in the worst shape of his life right now and some how he’s kept up with riding a few miles almost everyday. I on the other hand use food to relieve stress… Chocolate and Wendy’s being my weapons of choice and it’s been quite a difficult year. Needless to say I’ve put on some poundage over the winter XDD. Buuuut I’ve gone down a few pounds already just from cutting out fast food and trying to be somewhat active. I never gained that much weight but it was enough for me to just feel like crap. My goal is to be ungodly skinny… is it healthy? no. But will it piss off all those people yelling at me for dieting “what? you look fine! Don’t diet! Stay fat like us!” oh yes, yes it will. I’m using it as motivation. Lets see how I do.
