this is just a quick little blog post because i need your help! okay, so last week after seeing gale's post about aquatic plants, i decided that this house needed a fish. i've always loved fish, with the exception of these nasty eels that my mom decided to get for our aquarium when i was younger. those things were so freaking gross, and sometimes we'd come home to find them flip flopping around on the floor because they'd jumped up and knocked the top open, landing them on the den carpet. so, yeah, kind of a tangent, but aside from those, i pretty much like most fish! anyway, i saw the blog post and got to thinking about the goldfish that look like they have brains on the outside of their heads (they have a fancy name, but i can't remember it). i had to drag chris, kicking and screaming, no less, to the pet store on friday afternoon to get a fishy!
unfortunately, they won't have the brain goldfish until next week, but i didn't let it stop me in my quest for an aquatic friend. so i just decided on the little goldfish like i used to win at carnivals. i told the girl i wanted two of the white ones with orange spots, but when she came back, she gave one orange fish, and one white fish, but not even white, like a dirty white. they're not pretty, so i guess i have to love them even more because of it. of course the dirty white one swam behind the orange one right as i went to take the picture (thanks, fish). so here's where you come in... i don't know what to name them, and unless you can help me think of something, the white one will be called cal and the orange one will be called mars, and i'm pretty sure they don't want to shares a name with a fish! so HELP ME!
P.S. i've decided to try out what many other bloggers are doing to pass on some items from their closet. i've started another blog where i'll part with a few clothes and bags from my closet (i can be such a hoarder when it comes to clothes, because i always feel like if i get rid of something, i'll want to wear it and realize i no longer have it). you can see it HERE.
