Ok, so I may have recently been a bit hormonal and psychotically obsessed distraught over things that a certain friend of mine may or may not have done. If she's reading this, she knows who she is and what my feelings are on the topic (seeing as how I wrote a lovely angst-filled post about it). It's caused me to think a lot lately on the subject of friendship and what exactly a friend's purpose is.

This post will not be about that. I refuse to dwell on the subject any longer than necessary, and I've deemed it no longer necessary. Things and people change, including myself.

It'd be a boring world if it were static.

So, I'm rather cheery this morning. I think it's safe to say that the raging bitch inside of me is safely gone away to her little cubby hole only to return again next month.

My betta fish is looking rather cramped. I think that it's about time I set him up in a proper aquarium. I've been meaning to stick him in my R2D2 aquarium (what, you didn't think I was a geek? PFT!), but I haven't had the room to fit it anywhere. If I clear off the top shelf on one of my bookcases I think I can fit him there.

Maybe. The R2D2 aquarium looks like this:

Yea. It's full of the awesomeness. It retailed for $103.99.

I, of course, would never pay that price for it. I did what any self-respecting store slave employee would do.

I waited for it to go on clearance. And waited. And waited.

And wound up getting it for $13.

Oh. Yea. That was a happy day in Nyx-land. He's a neat lil' guy who moves his head around and has red, green, and blue LED lights.

I think that it would be a nice little tribute to a series that I grew up on (that and Indiana's all my dad's fault).

More pictures to come tonight! And I may even (gasp) put a picture of myself up!


  1. That's pretty cool. I mean, I'm not a Star Wars person, but if I were, I'd dig that a lot. I just like fish. And bargains.

  2. Nyx-

    Mumbles said that he is very upset...matter of fact hes heartbroken that you didnt blog about him like you said you would after he spent that money on that calendar so that you could get over your 100.00 mark the other night... and about R2D2... does his legs and arms still fall off if you mention my name? LOL you remember what happened when you bought him... I kinda sorta maybe broke him...

  3. Aunt Becky: Yes. It's extremely cool. And the clearance section is my secret lover.

    Pumpkin: shall have to rectify that immediately. Soon as I write up a new post. And R2D2 is ok...just so long as I don't bump him too hard.

  4. I am SO JEALOUS of your R2D2 fish tank. Like, I almost cried.

  5. Badass Geek: You should be. It's freaking awesome. It's only a 1.8 gallon tank, but it should be sufficent for my betta fish. And the periscope? Yea, you can actually look through it to view the fish from inside the tank.

    I'm totally geeking out over it.


Because I'm needy.
