One fish, two fish

Subject: One fish, two fish…
Mood : tired
Music : Elliott Smith “Everything Means Nothing to Me”

I got new fish! I got two African dwarf frogs (Keroppi and Karaoke), two male guppies (Tiger and Oil Spill – because of what their tails look like), two female guppies (Abanica -“fan” in Spanish because of her tail) and Anaranjada. A golden snail named Slush Puppy. A Ghost Shrimp (who rocks – he looks like a cross between a sea monkey and a crawfish) named Dr. Zoidberg (I Know Dr Z isn’t a ghost shrimp but he reminds me of him). And a neon tetra named Caliente (as in “hot” because of the neon color… I love how when it’s dark he loses his color.. but when you turn the lights on he’ll be all white but the color comes back in a couple minutes). I have these lillipads that the frogs love jumping on top of and chillin’ on… and the Dr. Z likes to hang upside down from one ahahhaahaha. I just wish Geoffrey was here to see the new fish. He’d like them.

I’ve been having migraines and upper respitory tract infection and so I’m heavily medicated. I’m on codeine and prescription strength Motrin (400 mg). The codeine is a painkiller and makes you … not sleepy.. but in a mini coma type feeling. So I’m off to bed. I’m getting that “I feel like jello” feeling starting to come back. Good night.

Confession / R.I.P. Geoffrey the fish

Subject: Confession…
Mood : embarrassed
Music : Ashlee Simpson “Lala”

I must admit this. The guilt is eating at me.

Okay, here it goes: I’ve been listening to Ashlee Simpson non-stop lately. HAHAA. This is my first “guilty pleasure”. I’ll listen to N Sync, Britney, Xtina, New Kids, Kriss Kross, Vanilla Ice, etc and am proud of it. No guiltiness whatsoever. Oh yeah, and Joey Lawrence and Ace of Base. But this is ridiculous! I can’t get her songs out of my head. There, I said it. I admitted it. Damnit.

Mood : sad

My poor betta fish – Geoffrey – that Cait bought for me in the fall died today! He was acting a little weird yesterday so I kept my eye on him. This morning I checked on him and he was fine. When I came home tonight, he had passed away!!!!!!!! He was a beautiful blue, calm fish. And he was healthy, too. Or so I thought. Making a nest all the time (when they have bubbles on the top of the water – means they’re happy and in the “mating mood” – which is good haha). I feel like a horrible, horrible, horrible mother. 😦 I am upset! I don’t know what I did wrong, I always took care of him. And I just got him a new friend, Damien (a beautiful red beta) so he wouldn’t be bored. Of course they didn’t swim together (they’d attack each other) but at least if they are by each other, they can be stimulated and not be so bored. Plus it’s healthy for them to flare up at each other here and there. He is so adorable, too. When I’d come home and come up to the tank, he’d get all excited and stare at me.

R.I.P Geoffrey 😦
