I wish these things just happened to me

I love blogs, I really do. If they are someone awesome's. (does that make sense? probably not) I just can't get used to writing in them, and each time I do, it's always has to be self-referential.

I want to have stuff that happens to me just appear on this webpage, without the additional steps of having me have to remember it later and typing it out.

At least I have animal updates, which is something that has been consistent so far.

1) The glueys (guppy babies) are almost 1 inch long now and they have interesting yellow and black tails, except for one which is albino. However, to my great dismay, I found three of them missing pieces of tail, just like their late mother, Karen. I am disturbed and upset. I have invested too much emotion into my fry, watching them grow from nothings into the upstanding young fish they are today. They are funny when they get fish food flakes that are too big stuck to the tops of their heads. I don't want them to die!

2) The snails are taking over. Norman S. Botia doesn't seem to be consuming them, and they are multiplying at a startling rate. If anyone is interested in some aquatic snails, I have plenty. They have translucent shells and their mouths (yes! you heard right! snail-mouth!) are interesting to watch when they scrape along the glass.


Okay, so.. facebook. This goes with the whole blog thing, sort of. Except it's the easy way. I still never really post anything. But I am looking at applications, and I have so many mixed feelings. One thing I must mention is the Compare People app. I just tried it today. I can't say I don't abhor the idea of it, and I can't say I don't take some measure of pleasure in it. It's my new vice in lieu of the reality tv everyone else seems to like.


I am so impressed with the writers' strike. This isn't referring to what they are doing or trying to achieve or whatever. Just the sheer scale and importance of it. I thought an entertainment machine such as Hollywood could never be affected thusly by the feeble attempts of mere humans. I do hope it ends soon and that the writers get their royalties from the internet, but that's a whole 'nother point.

If you haven't already, read Sean's blog post about whales. That stuff rocks. Beavers are amazing. Their lodges are mysterious secrets, but I have been researching and what comes up is simply miraculous to me. I am thinking about changing my major to Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Too bad it involves ecology.

A testimony for any potential snail adopters reading this page: Their mouths are indeed very interesting to watch. Dare I say even mesmerizing? Yes, I dare say it.

You *are* daring. Who knows what people reading your comment may think about your partiality to snails? A risky move, but one worth taking.

At the BASS Halloween soirée I spent a few minutes in your room just gazing at the snail mouths. Fascinating.

Cautiously optimistic about a new post in 2010.

Alan said...

Naively hopeful about a new post in 2011.

Alan said...

I've bet a large sum of money on a post in 2012. Don't let me down.

Double or nothing for a post in 2013.

Alan said...

I am financially ruined but it will all have been worth it for a post in 2014.

Comments are nice but posts are better. Crossing my fingers for a post in 2016.

Looking forward to a 10th anniversary post in 2017!

I don't know if I can do that, Alan. I feel that my bitter, jaded self would only ruin this record of my bright eyed and bushy tailed past.
