Thanks. Well the anniversary went well, there were a lot more people there than we had expected to see. Not just family but some of their friends and coworkers who had known them a long time too. With so many people around it was fairly easy to avoid him. We ended up on opposite ends of their house for the buffet-style luncheon after the vow renewal ceremony. They got "remarried" in a car lol! Apparently my step-aunt's husband's parents had been married in a car so since they had both passed away early this year they decided to honor their memory by having their renewal in one too. My dad left pretty early because he's antisocial and hates being around a lot of people. We enjoyed it though. Got to see everyone on that side of the family, and took some pics of the ceremony and the cake-cutting. The food was all done by my cousin (their son) and it was great! And there was a TON of it too. Brought home some extra, and before we came home we went back over to my parents house (they are neighbors- they have the 50 acres next to my parents 50) and I went out in the pasture to hunt for puffballs while their baby calf ran around nearby. Only found one and it was past being edible but I had a good laugh at the cows. The calf and her mama were playing "king of the hill" on a big mound of dirt near their hay bale feeder.

I'll have to remember that because I have Mozilla and we were looking at the Options and there wasn't anything to stop videos from playing so we couldn't do anything.

Visited with the lil' fishies at Walmart when I was there. Not looking to get another for a little while still, but I know those little ones probably don't get all that much attention over in that corner of the store, so to give them a little attention as a sad former owner kinda warmed the heart a little. The vast majority looked pretty good, too. Nice to see being Walmart and all.

So tiny! One in particular, I'm not sure I've seen a Black Moor so small. Had a couple of those guys long ago.

You could always opt for a kissing gourami next time. Easy upkeep, grow to fit tank, and live a LOOONG time. And ours was pretty smart for a fish. Would swim to meet us when we came to feed them and would sometimes "kiss" at the glass or on our fingers in the water. They are quite curious and brave lol!

It's an idea. Though really I'd love to have another oranda at some point, but maybe with a different coloration so it doesn't feel like a replacement. I'm not going to assume they all have the same personality, but if any fish were to ever have the wish to curl up in their owner's lap, it would probably be an oranda. lol

I've loved all the fish I've had and known here over the years (and we've had backyard goldfish/koi ponds so there's been plenty), but she's the only one to make me wish recently that a fish could be picked up and hugged.


Somewhat related... I'm considering getting a Cuddle Clones plush done of her. Though I may wait to see if they have their good Thanksgiving/Cyber Monday sale again this year. They aren't cheap, but they do a good job and so cute. The dogs look esp well done.

Oh my gosh! I had never heard of cuddle clones so I checked out their website. It does look amazing! I lost my sweet pup in April and I miss her like crazy. I may need to get a doll of her done for posterity.

I'm really happy that I'm visiting my parents now, especially since in the Gear Grinder thread, I complained about them being upset about me being bald.

Its been 2 weeks since then and my hair has grown back so they won't be as shocked

We got a new employee at work. A transfer from another restaurant. I'm usually not very happy about new employees, since it usually means another lazy person who'll leave me to do most of th work, but she's different. She's nice, smart, funny, and VERY good at her job. It's actually kind of scary how cool she is. Makes me wonder why she's working at a place like this when she could just as easily work someplace better and move up in an actual career. Nevertheless, I'm glad to have such a capable person working here.

She made my day.

I got a good dent in my file of Breath of the Wild, and had some more ideas for my Obligado fic...

But still I have the issue of putting everything to words...

Also had pizza in celebration of National Cheese Pizza Day.

When your Amazon order comes from a location only 75 miles away in the next state over and will be here the next day after it shipped out.

Food dehydrator for my mom for Christmas. Never had one before and think she/we will have fun with that. Also found a great book to go with it via eBay; great price for how thick it is and full of info, recipes (even pet treat ideas), etc.

Hope maybe this will also encourage her to aim for better snacks she can make vs the amount of candy I noticed she's been chocking down that she shouldn't be. >.> Gonna end up back on the diabetic (type 2) meds if she keeps that crap up.

I literally just found out there was a seventh season of Offspring, not being sure if it was even a thing, but there it is, on Netflix.



Yeeees

Caught Star Trek 2, Wrath of Khan at my local theater tonight. A much needed break from reality.

Getting a lot of writing done, so that's a good thing.

Making me happy- PAYDAY!! Nice fat check today. Also got off in time to go put it in the bank, go down to the library for their book sale (picked up a nice little stack of stuff for research and fun for under 6$), and still got my shopping done at WM in time to come home for a nice hot bubble bath. Balanced out the sh**ty day at work.
