i got dawny's gift today! yep, my birthday was january 23, but i won't complain, seeing as how i just got what i'm giving alli for christmas (2005) in the mail yesterday. :D
anyway, lookee, an ecosphere! i mentioned it ages ago on the blog.. she took note! i also had it on my google wishlist. i'll have to modify that, because i know y'all are rushin' to it and now you'll be stuck buying me the $500 dive computer. thank you, dawny! it's awesome! i don't even have to lie: i love it! what's really funny is that dawn was saying she thought of something to get me and she hoped i liked it and, if i didn't, i'd better lie. my mind wandered to the ecosphere.. but then when i was at her house, she quickly closed her closet door and said i shouldn't look in there. so i assumed it was in there, whatever it was. wrong!
it's really neat, this little globe. i have four little shrimps, too, but i cannot manage to get a picture of them as they are way too fast and, when i finally succeed at capturing them on, um, card, they're just a blur. so you will just have to trust me on this: i have four shrimp. i offered the naming rights to alli for her work fundraiser, thinking they could hold a raffle, but she passed, so let me know if you can think of anything. one's really big, and that's about the only distinction between any of them. oh, one has a bit of the green algae hanging off him. he can be greeny until it falls off, i suppose.
this weekend, i'm going sailing AND diving for the first time in months. and i actually have monday off, so maybe there'll be more diving then. yay! :)
today was absolutely gorgeous & perfect. let that continue through the fin de semana, please!
every once in a while, i suggest a video. now i suggest beyonce's "check up on it." the song is infectious.. and the video? well, if i were a boy, i would so have a crush on ms knowles. launch.com. go there.
