Going to State! [15 Apr 2007|11:00am]
We (all the people that went to region UIL) got back from Huntsville last night.

Long story short, me, Eric, Rachel, and Meaghan are all going on to state! I got 2nd place and Eric got 3rd place in Ready Writing, Rachel got 1st place and Meaghan got 3rd in News Writing. They gave us big ass medals in little velvet drawstring bags.

I found out that there were only four region competitions yesterday. That means that only twelve people in all are going to be at the state level... but it will be twelve really good writers. The people that place at state get scholarship $$$. The state competition is on May 5th at UT (That's good... no overnight road trip this time).

HOW DO I FIX MY HAIR FOR PROM without going to a salon? I need detailed directions...

Bonus points if you/someone you know can do something with it for me.

FYI: I have very straight, very thick, mid-back length hair.

Wal-mart to cut fish sales (Yes!!!) [22 Feb 2007|09:33pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Wal-Mart is to cease trading in aquarium fishes at some of its US stores in response to consumer demand.

According to a report from the news agency Reuters, Wal-Mart, which is one of the USA's largest retailers, with over 3000 stores, is to stop fish sales at an undisclosed number of its outlets.

Spectrum Brands Inc (formerly Rayovec), who own the Tetra and Jungle brands, told Reuters that a retailer was to stop fish sales at 700 stores.
Wal-Mart would not confirm to Reuters exactly how many stores would be affected, but said that it was certainly not abandoning the aquarium business.

Bill Chappell, SunTrust analyst told Reuters that Wal-Mart does not have the appeal of the Petsmart and Petco chains, or the smaller independents, with fishkeepers.

"You see too many floaters. You walk in there and there are a bunch of dead fish. It's not that consumers don't want fish, it's just, in my opinion, it's just consumers don't want to buy fish there and it's in large part because they don't look particularly healthy."

I love Epsilon and CasanovaCollapse )

This must be the ultimate irony; I got a papercut on the envelope. I hope it's not a bad omen.

Bathtime pictures (cross-posted) [18 Jul 2006|04:21pm]
The Bird, who is nearly 6 years old, was always very camerashy. I haven't attempted to photograph her in several years because the noise/flash/actual camera itself would send her in a fluttering frenzy. In her "old age" she's become a lot more personable and a lot more fearless, so I tried again to take her picture, and look at the results!

The Bird taking a bath and stealing my boyfriend!Collapse )

I'm very very proud of her. She's not afraid of the big bad camera anymore!

Rest in Peace, Alpha [01 Jun 2006|12:37am]
Aaron's betta Alpha passed away this evening. It happened very abruptly, so it was probably just his time to go.

Aaron rescued this fish from a neglectful owner about a year ago. There's no telling how old he was when Aaron got him, but we know that Alpha lived a long life. He was a solid ruby red with two lines of small green spots on his sides. I've never seen such a bright, regal red. Alpha was small, even-tempered, and he waggled his tail when he swam. Alpha was the reason I got into betta fish in the first place.

We watched Alpha and made him as comfortable as we could in his last hour of life, and we gave him a proper burial in Aaron's backyard.

Rest in peace, little guy.
