In which i changed the filter




I just changed the fish filter for Gilgamesh and Hercules and I hope they appreciate it.  I’m sure you didn’t care but I don’t really care that you don’t care.  We have had a long series of fish filters and honestly the things are idiot proof.


They label the front and the back and you just slide it into the little case and VOILA clean water (hopefully).  This, of course, is all in an attempt to NEVER have to clean the fish tank. Cleaning the tank is a pain in the ass because the tank is in my office and nowhere near a water source.


You have to take the fish out and put them in these little Tupperware containers which is no big deal except that Tucker ate them so there are holes in them now.  I feel that these holes will make it difficult to keep the water in the containers, which would probably adversely affect the health of the fish. I suppose I will have to buy more Tupperware if Andie ever hopes to steal her fish back again.
Of course, now that she’s all set for next year she’ll be spending the summer here before she starts Med School so the fish will too.  I’m pretty psyched about that because Andie hasn’t spent the summer here since high school and I hope to get some quality bonding time in.  The only down side is it’s difficult to be whiney when Andie’s around because she’s merciless in teasing me about it.


Speaking of Tupperware (not that I really was) isn’t it incredibly annoying how I have about 100 tops and none of them ever fit the container I chose? What’s up with that?  It’s like socks; where does the matching half go?  I have no idea and that was rhetorical so don’t bother to answer.


I was going to tell you about how I always screw up my Amazon orders.  You see, apparently if you put something in your shopping cart in Amazon, even if it was a million years ago, it somehow never leaves.  Some sites delete your shopping cart after a while but apparently not Amazon.


I know this because I ordered this universal remote and when I received it there was a copy of Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version) in the box as well.  The thing is that I already have the BBC version of P&P and I don’t need two of them.


I didn’t realize that I had even ordered it until it came and then I looked at my receipt and sure enough there was a Logitech Universal Remote AND P&P.  I bought a copy at Christmas and I must have been looking at multiple sites and decided to buy it from a different site but never deleted it from Amazon.


From now on I guess I’ll double-check my order when I buy something.  I am notoriously absent minded when it comes to things like that.


So I suppose I’ll just give away this version since I have both the movie (which we prefer) and the Blu-ray Version so someone will be the lucky recipient of that gift.


Well that’s the news of the day.  See ya!

    Ugh – my kitchen is the same way. Too many lids, too few bottoms. It’s a fucking conspiracy. Also, I have forgotten to edit my fucking cart before, too. Happily, I was able to return the unwanted extra copies of a book I’d already read. I think your spam filter may hate me.

    About once a year, I go through all my tupperware and tupperware-like containers and toss anything that doesn’t match. Basically, a year is when my frustration at mismatched tops and bottoms hits a peak and I either toss everything or do it selectively – depends on my annoyance level. I thought about burning it once, but decided the fumes would probably kill me.

    I replaced all my containers with the Rubbermaid ones that have the easy find lids… just click them on the bottom and voila! No more lonely lids looking for a container to love and vice versa……I fully believe they saved my marriage. :-)

  5. Too funny, just had a knitting machine delivered … and it came with three bookcases.
    Apparently ‘someone’ didn’t check the cart.
    This is why we are friends … among other reasons.
    Cannot wait to see you next week … I know how much you want to hug me xxxx
