I found a large tub of LEGOs abandoned on the side of the road while on my way home last night. Chris and I played LEGOs for hours (well, I played for about an hour, buthe played for a few more while I worked on my ANAGPIC presentation). I made a lobster and he made a rocket ship.
On Sunday, Chris and I got some more fauna for my aquariums. I also picked up some test kits (finally!) including one for iron. The guy at the fish store was impressed that I got the iron testing kit, which made me feel better after previously getting into a geeky argument with two of the other employees about the merits of Siamese Algae Eaters versus the merits of Thai Flying Foxes. The jury is still out on that one.
- 2 mystery snails
- 1 giant, filter-feeding wood shrimp
- 3 Amano algae-eating shrimp
- 1 croaking gourami
Chris and I went to the Shedd last weekend, on one of their free admission days. He took a lot of little videos with his camera of the various fish. Here is a video of me being a total DORK and geeking out about all the fish…I am particularly excited about the boxfish.
Cost of parking at Midway airport: $58.50
Cost of getting my car towed and ticketed if they declare a snow emergency in Evanston when I’m out of town: $100
Cost of being frustrated because neither of these are good options because I am poor poor poor: priceless.
In other news, my boyfriend is TEH AWESOME. He bought me eggplant and daikon radish papyrus from Hiromi Paper…AND he got me the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Pop-up book that I’d been drooling over! I posted about the pop-up book over on the Kilgarlin blog.
Me: “Just let yourself in..you have the key.”
B: “But not the pig!”
Me: “I gave the pig to someone else…”
B: [sadface] “The pig is inside my heart?”
Me: “The pig was inside you this whole time!”
