and because my output > my income, this debt is growing. yes i have joined the ranks of those living beyond their means.

yay. woohoo. someone just kill me now.

but whatever you do, don't tell my folks.

watch out now!

just got in to work, sat down at my desk, and what's the news headline over at libe? a certain political party's victory, or should i say, surprise upset. i'm thinking to read some headlines over on this side of the pond to see what, if any, official line has been stated.

i wonder if folks actually believed that this party would take power? or if, as in the case of le pen a couple years ago, people acted out of frustration but w/out a general belief that he really was the best candidate...

at any rate, it will be interesting to see what goes on in these next few months. yes indeed.

edvard munch

just because i'm not screaming on the outside, doesn't mean i'm not screaming on the inside.

in other news, leaving filing to do itself is never a good thing. if i filed every week, instead of rarely, i wouldn't be overwhelmed by those dastardly little bits of STUFF today!!!!!!!

you know things are bad when you wake up in the morning, and it's your day off, and before you even fully get out of bed you're in the midst of a stress/panic attack.

bird flu

having just read about the continued spread of the bird flu in turkey, i wonder if we in the u.s. are seeing any cases.

...being that we are entering our flu season, would we even notice?

and does this mean that i should stop eating chicken???

first of all, welcome to the new year. i hope it is better than last year.

second of all. the other day i put a couple new blue crabs into one of the tanks i take care of. which made it three good size crabs in a 55-g. and once i got the 2 in there, i realized that three is a tight fit. but the alternative was to starve the 2 to death.

yesterday i thought that 2 were missing because i could only see one set of waving eye stalks above the substrate. but i looked around the tank and saw nothing amiss. well this morning i'm doing some other maintenance and discover a dried blue crab under a table. across the room. and i think to myself: aha! i knew that tank was way too quiet. then i think, h'mmm, i wonder if i'll find another one? and i do. behind a box.

so now i'm thinking, maybe that crab in the other tank didn't just die under the substrate like i was hypothesizing. maybe i'll find another dried surprise as i go about my week's work. isn't that lovely? yeah. i think so too.

again. welcome to the new year.
