mmm, gritty

Yesterday we had this crazy dust storm… I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything like it before. Initially, I grumbled because I mistakenly took the haze to be cloud rather than dusty haze. Then, I grumbled because for the next 6 hours everything smelt and tasted like dirt. Blech.
Hmm, I just read an article about the storm and how scientists have taken samples to ‘see what is living in it’… gross, I was eating that shit yesterday!

We have been visited by another friendly neighbourhood cat. This was is orange and kind of reminds me of the Cheshire Cat… it’s ever so soft and cuddly but very very hairy. As per other cat visits it just strutted right on into the kitchen without hesitating… something about our house attracts random cats. It is very cute though!

On a less cute note… on Easter Sunday we decided to kill our beloved Oscar fish – who has the very original name of Oscar – poor guy, something got a hold of him and it was just devastating to watch our lively little fish get so sick. I had hoped he would get better but just couldn’t watch him suffer anymore ๐Ÿ™ Bye bye Oscar.
There is a possibility we’ll get another (being that we have an, almost, empty 4ft tank now – there is a lone survivor. A feeder fish has lived 2 months in the tank somehow and outlived Oscar. I really have no idea how it accomplished this feat – I just wonder if we could get an equally awesome fish as Oscar) but not sure… this time at least he could have some tank mates instead of just eating everything.

Anyway, I’m off to devour some chocolate bunny ears. Have fun friends… oh and I apologise for leaving you with a paid post. Horrible, I know.

OH… AND go check out http://watch-gossip-girl.com I’m an episode reviewer over there again YAY!

    Yesterday, here in Toronto, it was like 20 degrees. I skipped last period and went walking around the little shops near my school. Maybe that kind of sunny weather will come around to you guys soon enough.

    Btw, i love watch-gossip-girl.com. Very reliable ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad to hear you had a good easter!

    Sorry about your fish, I think Oscar is a lovely name by the way! I hope you find a fish that is as good as Oscar was!
