Poor still-nameless snail...



I found it at hobby lobby for 50% off, and I passed it up, only to return two weeks later, desperately hoping it was still there. It was! for 66% off this time! (it was originally $80) I took it as a sign from God, and got it. When I was in line to buy it, the women in front and behind me were both eyeing it covetously, like they were tempted to snatch it from me, and they asked me those "where did you find that" questions that mean "you don't really want that, do you?" Some women get oddly fierce about their home decor. Anyway, Hyacinthe went crazy over it, 'cause in this one he can see his distorted reflection everywhere... heh heh. The first day, he kept trying to bite the glass. He still goes crazy every now and then, but he generally has accepted that he can't fight that other fish."



I'm freakin' obsessed with this camera... and my Hya. If I was a mermaid, I'd have Hya for a pet. He is a water-breathing scaled cat. So-called catfish are not catlike at all, but Hya's just so graceful and curious that I want to pet him! (I don't think my oils and such would be good for him, or I'd have tried)

Still can't settle on a name for my poor snail! He reminds me so much of something, but I can't think what! (It's like black opal, but not...)

feelings: relaxed

Rockin' bowls! Now, one question: aren't you supposed to have filters and crud in there for the fishies, or is that just an amenity that's not really necessary? (I have no clue whatsoever about fish care)

Re:
depends on the fish, and how often you change the water... betas actually breathe air as well as water! (isn't that just so cool you jump up and down? *giggles at the thought of Kat EVER getting that excited*) But I wanna spoil my fishie, so I'm thinking of looking into filters... but no, they aren't necessary if the bowl holds enough water and it's often refreshed.

Re:
wow... sooooo cool! *jumps up and down in excitement*

now, if for some odd reason I ever decide to get a fish rather than something fluffy for a pet (pretty unlikely), I'll know I can get him/her a cool bowl.

Re:
BLECH! I hate that name! Mainly 'cause I've disliked every 'Gary' I've met, also because the letters look ugly and ALSO because there is a snail named Gary on Spongebob.... You sneaky person. Trying to get ME to pay homage to Spongebob! Hah! You failed in your evil little plot!

coooooooooooooooooooooool! Impeccable taste, as usual. And I wanna poke the snail...heh, at this point you could always just name the poor little blighter "Emanon"... ;)
