Good job, MB!

I'm pretty sure if I didn't take Fleurys digging towel away he would forget to eat sometimes... Seriously, this bun has an OBSESSION with digging into towels. And Sidney keeps chinning my computer. Really, bun... really?

I work tonight until 11... I can't wait to be done and have 2 days off! Whoot for weekends off!!!!

That's awesome tanlover! You'll have to let us know how it goes when you use it! It'll be nice to have that safety net with 3 buns on your hands

I'm back home (at my parents), seing we got a long weekend off school. First time i've been home for more than a day since August. Don't have to go back to school until Thursday I live about 1,5-2 hours away (depending on traffic). I braught Bosse with me He did great in the car, but he took forever to even venture out of his travel cage after we got home. When he got out, he barely looked around befor he went back in. I hope he'll like the habitat we made him haha, it's so.. homemade, lol. I'll post a pic later in the picture chat. Currently we're just leaving him alone, to let him get used to his new habitat.

I'm babysitting my little sister atm, it's like I never left haha.

Awwww, Svandis! I'm so jealous. I haven't been home (not from school, moved permanently to Pittsburgh, PA from NY last year to be with my boyfriend) since Easter. I miss my family for sure. I probably won't be home until Christmas again either. BOO!

I actaully don't mind being away from home I wish I missed it haha. I'm kinda just home to see my little sister, and because my mom has been asking me to get home for ages, hehe. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy it. It's just typical that when I fist get home, they take advantage of it and go out, instead of actually spending time with me. They are going out again tomorrow.

I hear ya Svandis. I go home less and less. I love my family and it's really nice to be back in that comfort of "home" but since I'm everyone's hairdresser, they usually have alternative motives when I come home

Hmm, I'm think I want to tear my hair out now. I have spent the last 4 hours working on my costume for a fundraiser and I haven't made much progress. I'm terrible with making things from scratch, but there wasn't anything in the current costume collection that will work for my part. =\

Roberta - It is a forest theme. I'm a bird, so I'm trying to make wings for my arms.

So - I don't know if I have ever contributed to the chats but wanted to ask y'alls opinion because I know you are all honest.

My boyfriend and I have a favorite sushi restaurant in San Diego that we visit usually once a week. So we go out to dinner tonight and are sitting there and my boyfriend very calmly says "don't move". I'm thinking "OMG there is a spider on me" (and actually thought of the spider story going on here! hey, just because i don't contribute doesn't mean i don't occasionally follow along). No....it's a GIANT cockroach on the wall behind me...I'm talking maybe bigger than 3 inches long. Without causing a scene, my boyfriend gets up and grabs our waitress to tell her. The waitress gets the chef (of all people) who comes out with a kitchen blowtorch (not making this up...) and is banging around looking for the thing, finds it, lights it on fire, and it comes crashing down in a fire-y death onto the table (again, not making this up....). The waitress thank us for not making a scene as everyone in the restaurant is semi-staring at us thinking "what in the world did those people do?". So then - they bring us our check and there is no discount, no apology from the chef, nothing.

The waitress was nice and all...but this is a place that we frequent VERY regularly so a lot of the employees either recognize or know us. So my question is - do we brush it off as a bad experience? do we never visit again? or do we maybe write the owner? i understand where there is food there are bugs - that isn't my issue...I work in Marine Science and some of the stuff I handle on a daily basis is 10x worse than a cockroach. It's basically the entire way the situation was handled from the blowtorch to the non-apology.

Just thought I'd ask you guys!

BMT (I almost called you Lola ) I personally wouldn't go because I have slight germophobia and whatever phobia it is to bugs but if that incident didn't bug you, there's no one to say you can't go back. It's bad business practice though how they handled the situation and the owner/manager might want to know.

LBJ- I saw wings for sale at JoAnns. Do you have to make the costume yourself?

I totally agree, FF. BMT -- if you do plan (and even if you don't) to visit again, I would definitely contact the person in charge of the place! That is TERRIBLE. The last restaurant we went to our burger wasn't done right and we complained because it was a $11 burger and the manager didn't charge us for ANYTHING AND gave us free food. Seeing something like that is not only a turnoff to customers but is deserving of something in return, ESPECIALLY FOR NOT MAKING A SCENE. I tell you, I would've gotten right up and left. Not to be rude, but I wouldn't be able to take it and I definitely would not be able to finish my dinner. I may have just watched to many Restaurant Impossibles (show on Food Network and is AWESOME if no one has ever seen it!) but it freaks me out about restaurants sometimes!

Finally, out of work! And to celebrate I'm spending my Friday night with a bottle of wine, a bubble bath, and Crime and Punishment which I haven't had a chance to read all freaking week! I'm doing this, OF COURSE, after getting on BB and seeing whats up with everyone! I'm an addict... And I'm probably babbling.. but I've already drank half a glass. And I'm a total lightweight...

LBJ -- I don't know how you do it! I give you props for even trying! I try really hard to be creative but it just doesn't happen for me. Also, maybe try uploading a pic of what you have so far to the chat? I'm sure SOMEONE on this thread could have an idea to give you! If you don't mind me asking, what's the fundraiser for?

Hope your new girl is still doing good, FF! Any names yet??!? I'm excited to hear them once you guys decide!

FF - I don't have to make the costume myself, but I have a budget I have to stay within. Well, I guess I could use my own money if I wanted. LOL What kind of wings were they? I've seen butterfly/fairy wings before. I'm just making sleeves to go over my arms that are wing shaped.

Tanlover - Well, I don't know how well it is going to turn out. It probably won't be the most impressive thing anyone have ever seen since it is mostly going to be made of felt. The fundraiser is for the local nature center. I can try posting a pic tomorrow when I have better lighting.

Skipper - definitely post a pic of your turtle! I would like to see as well but as for a tank, my turtle is supposed to get 10", but he's 3 yrs & only 5". He's in a 75 gallon all to himself. It's been said that a turtle should have 10 gallons per inch but a 75 would be perfect for my turtles size if you can get your hands on one. I don't know how big yours will get, usually females get larger. Do you know for sure Frankie is male? (Long foreclaws & long tail)

For a filter, look for one that can filter a larger amount than what you have. I had a fluval 305 for quite some time but hated it. I now have an eheim 2217, great reviews & is recommended for tanks at about 165 gallons I believe. So far it works it works great!

LBJ- best of luck for your costume! Can't wait to see pics I'm terrible at sewing or creating any kind of clothing. I can draw it out but that's about it haha.

TL- I love that show. I used to watch HGTV before bed but lately I switched to Food Channel and I feel like I'm learning a lot from that show.

LBJ- I feel like they were of the fairy/butterfly nature. If nothing else the ladies at JoAnn could help you figure out the wing stuff. The one I go to the Bf worked at for a couple years so I know the ladies are very nice and helpful. Hopefully they or someone can help you figure it out.

As for names for "sweets". I like a recent suggestion to class up one of options. It's hard because nothing we will come up with will be as great as Bunjamin Franklin. I decided to take a night off and had myself a drink and some video games It's been a longggg week! I got some good news today so for once, I am looking forward to the next week!

BMT : The owners of the Sushi Place .. are they Japanese or what ?? ... In Western Australia every Japanese Place I have gone too has been owned by Chinese and I am not joking, Chinese running Japanese Places and the food that is served I would not give to a person dying of hunger... A few places where closed down by the health department because of rats and the likes running about the place when the light were off.

What you have stated, I would not be going back and I would be filing a complaint with the health department.

Oh. My. God. --- I never realized that Bunjamin was for Bunjamin Franklin. I am officially jealous. That is a GENIUS name.
