Senior Pescado  
He is not looking so well! He seems to be swimming strangely, and isn't eating. I do not think he is long for this world :(
I can only seem to keep these betta for about a year. I've heard of some living up to 3 years! I'm not having too much luck in that regard. They probably loose a good year because they are scared of the cat. Senpu really enjoys watching them, but before long... he gets really worked up and tries to catch them. He never sticks his paws in the water, but it's enough to scare the fish and make them hide. He does have a hiding place!

Ahhh.. I'm probably mistreating the poor fish. Mr. Fishie was very pretty.. and so is Senior Pescado. I haven't decided if I'm going to get a Sakana-san when Senior Pescado's time is up. I may take a break from the fish keeping, even if it makes Senpu depressed :X

I love that all of your fishies are named Mr. Fishie.

I would say the same thing happened here, but that was neglect more than anything. Still, fish are way more difficult pets to keep than, say, cats. They don't tell you when they are dying of sepsis or starvation or gluttony or blindness or whatever, and they die of EVERYTHING. D:

On a completely different I'm Hijacking Your Journal To Talk About Other Stuff note, Dead Rich Kids of the 13th Century BC/Mr. Max? Yes? Maybe some weekend? Maybe this weekend? It's up to you - this is a bit out of left field. I've kind of sunk back into the woodwork even after school. It's taking some time to get used to having free time again. o_o

Sounds good! This weekend would be great, actually. I'm getting pretty booked. Next weekend, Celine is coming to visit, and the weekend after that, we're going to San Antonio for our wedding anniversary. Then sometime at the end of March, I'm going back down to Austin with a freind to hit up the asian markets, momoko, and maybe get that castlevania medusa tattoo across my back I was talking about >..> At the last minute, though, I'll probably chicken out. I was also thinking about getting a solid black magatama from SMT Nocturne on the back of my neck with a bright teal outline. I'm really very dorky. >..> I think you knew that already, though.

Oh man...Castlevania or SMT? Or BOTH? I'd totally do it if I had the guts. Which I totally don't, so you should. OMG Magatama. That would be great. :D

I guess it's a good thing I piped up when I did! I was going to try for last weekend, but I crashed and burned and then got called into work for some stupid crisis on Monday. :( Not that I'm bitter or anything. But yeah! Saturday, I guess? I can drive up Saturday AM, swing by and get you around noonish or so, we go do the museum, get some Mr. Max's (what time do they open again? We always get there early), and go back home and play stupid Wii Castlevania. :D Or something like that. God, this is going to be awesome.

omg wii castlevania is so retarded. You'll love it, then you'll hate it. lol I'm excited! Wait until you hear Alucard's voice for when he gets smacked down like a bitch. Celine kept kicking my ass with Richter and it was dirty.

I don't remember what time Mr. Max's opens, but I know it's way later than you'd expect, and they stay open like all night? I'm sure the internets will help!
Actually.. the internets are no help at all here :/

Ok.. so you know how I was talking about how it would be hilariously awesome to have two "new skool" type swallows on the front of the chest, swooping down... except they're the green/blue and yellow/gold medusa heads? I totally want that, but on my back. I don't think I'm a boob-tattoo person. With rusty cogs in the background. yes. It's going to be kind of large-ish, so if I have the guts, I'll get the linework done one trip down there. If I chicken out at the last minute, I may just get the magatama done :P I may be silly in not liking the actual kazuma kaneko magatama design, as much as I like all his other stuff.. so I'm thinking about going with the simple design in the magatama menu, in all black, and outlining it with that same shade of blue as the demifiend's stuff. I figure it has to be on the back of the neck, though, because that's where his wacky spike is :X I can talk stupid tattoo stuff all day, but when we went to that tattoo convention in Austin, I totally chickened out with the excuse that I had no reference art with me. Valid excuse, but still an excuse :P

I'm way too chicken to do any of it, so I'm certainly not one to throw stones. But it seems like medusa heads would make good, symmetrical back tattoos. Those and the magatama aren't mutually exclusive - you could do either/or depending on what you feel up to, and the other could always be a second/third/whatever trip. It all sounds awesome to me. XD

I'm thinking Mr. Max opens at 6 pm, because I always assume restaurants open at 5 and then I'm surprised when we go there and it's not open yet. I could call, but that requires using the phone and I'm SO over the phone after this week. D: I'm going to say it's 6. Which means it will be 7. Was it closed on Sunday? I remember we tried to go there one time and it was closed, and there was much sadness. I don't remember why it was closed, though.

At any rate, the museum (or at least, the Tut exhibit) is open until 5. It looks like we can get individual tickets with a 15 minute window for $32 each or two VIP tickets with anytime access for $50. Sounds kind of like a no-brainer. I'll go ahead and order those for pickup at the museum. If we get there by 3, we'd have two hours to do the exhibit tour and goof around in the other exhibit halls (I've only been to the DMA once). That means we only have to fuck around/drive really slow for about an hour before Mr. Max's opens. It's supposed to take an hour and a half to get to the museum from Waco, so if I got there around 1 pm, we'd have PLENTY of time. Which also means I don't have to leave here until noon. Which means I can sleep in. ROCK ON.

Anyway, we waste time and then stuff our faces with tasty food at Mr. Max's and go back to your place and make Alucard make obscene noises. For what it's worth, I suck at fighting games. This sounds like it will be awesome (by which I mean terrible) no matter what. I can't wait. :D

Wow, stream of consciousness much? Whatever. But if that sounds good, I'll make arrangements and stuff and see you at 1-ish tomorrow?

Death Flu: 1, 48 oz of Emergen-C: 0
Yeah, pretty sure it's the flu, but I'm going to find out tomorrow.

Still, it's mostly worth it for having a stupid Zahi Hawass hat and playing the most retardedly awesome Castlevania game of all time. :D

It took me all freakin' day, but I did story mode on EVERYONE, so I could unlock TRUE STORY MODE. Then, I beat the time reaper (who looks a lot like death from Crotch of Darkness)with Shanoa& death so I could unlock them. Finally. Then I realized if I'd just connected my ecclesia save file to my wii earlier, I would have gotten aeon and shanoa right away, as well as a skull spider accessory, black mini bat wings, and some other crap. I did get the fairy for leaving the game on for 10 hours (even if I wasn't always in front of it). And I have a lot of hats now.

If you did get my flu, you'll hate me within the next day or two because it sucks.. so I saved this vid I found yesterday to distract you and save myself from your wrath :P
