a pet

"I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy."

I have a fish! A lovely little betta, with carmine red fins and a dark purple body. He was a birthday present from my siblings. :)

Currently residing in a voluminous fishbowl with plenty of grass and gravel, Squishy seems pleased with his surroundings and is darting about in an exploratory manner. We'll see how he takes to us.

p.s. Squishy is merely his interim name. I need to consider my options. Blakeney and Carlyle are currently the front-runners. (Jared suggests Leroy.)


  1. I'm definitely on board with the Leroy.

  2. Yeah, Leroy is my vote too. :) J-Rod for the win!

  3. How about Sir Leroy Carlyle Blakeney? It seems a shame to eliminate any of those three names!

  4. Leroy. You can even pretend to yell at him as an exercise in absurdity.

  5. Ugh, noooo... you guys are terrible.

    He doesn't look one BIT like a Leroy.
