Tell me your flood stories!

Posted 08/14/2010 at 01:52 AM by Mmckibben

So just three days ago i cleaned out all my pumps, then headed off to my friends house. When I came back I found my carpet soaking wet... well, that's not normal. It turns out one of my pumps wasn't secured right and decided to squirt water every where. Yep 5 gallons of water to clean up can't be good. I finally got every thing dry, but I'm going to leave fans on it for an other week.


Tell me your flooded horror stories, any kind, big or small. Have at it every one!

Who Is Sick Of Driving Hours To Get Fish?

I demand that more aquarium stores be opened world wide! Am I the only one who has to drive 45 minutes just to pick up a bottle of calcium! The government should do something!

Imagine the economic crash if we stopped paying thousands of dollars on fish! Who's with me!

So last night was the Perseid Meteor Shower. There are three major ones every year, the Perseids (August), Leonids (October) and the Orionids (December). A little background for you:

"The Perseid meteor shower has been observed for about 2000 years, with the earliest information on this meteor shower coming from the Far East. Some Catholics refer to the Perseids as the “tears of St. Lawrence”, since August 10 is the date of that saint’s martyrdom. Originating from the constellation...

I WON'T....i swear.

Posted 08/11/2010 at 04:36 AM by superkat (Thoughts While Watching Paint Dry)

I won't:

1. get caught up in a ball of negativity.
2. be used as someone else's doormat
3. get upset that what someone says about me may be untrue.
4. give up on humanity.
5. trade moments of peace for moments of pain
6. give in to adversity
7. stop being a part of positive people's lives.
8. let others push me into a corner.
9. accept that when people hurt others it is because they felt "betrayed."

I Cried.

And if you think this isn't a noteworthy topic...you don't know me very well. Because it takes a lot to bring me to that point. It is also interesting because it happened during rehearsal. I am playing "Blanche" in Brighton Beach Memoirs and one of my monologues hit home tonight...I will share:

"I'm not going to let you hurt me, Nora. I'm not going to let you tell me that I don't love you or that I haven't tried to give you as much as I gave Laurie....God knows...
