Davey Jones' Locker
One of my Bettas died today. He had a good run-I bought him in September. THe other one I bought at the same time is doing fine, and now has twice as much space to swim around in.
Possible causes of death:
*Frustration-The two fish were divided, but could see each other. I caught this one trying to break through the plastic divider to get to his pal.
*Confinement-He took his own life after failing to escape his half-year prison.
*Neglect-Over Winter break I forgot to have them fed. After four weeks of malnourishment he had halved in size. It was only a matter of time . . .
*Natural selection-See above-except the other fish just got stronger.

Few things in life are greater than chicken wings. Little fleshy bits of tender white meat, smothered in sauce. Mmmmm. Yes, I just typed the sound of joy.
One thing is better for sure, though. Last night, I ate wings with Carly. See how things get better? Wings AND my girlfriend. She stayed over again. Even though I miss the sleep after she stays over (I think I have mentioned she is a bed hog) I miss it even more when she doesn't stay over.
And now, the best thing of all-The promise of more winged nights to come. We are moving in together after the semester is over. We were going to move into a hous ewith a few friends, but we found a nice one bedroom, and I thnk we have settled on that. Thoughts of decorating my new home with her, being able to cook my own meals (good-bye wally's cafe), and most importantly, a full sized bed, dance through my head. I couldn't ask for more.
Ok, Maybe a big-screen TV.
Tomorrow, I will talk about the MVP race, and the post season, but I just can't think about it today.
