This gorgeous purple pitcher plant was blooming at my local garden center (Dearborn Farms). I’d never seen a purple pitcher in bloom, so I had to take snag a quick pic of the ridiculously plushy seeming flower. It looks like a pillow!

After much debate, I ordered a small lot of pea to nano sized marimo off of Amazon. They should arrive on Thursday! Much excite. Wow.

The dog looks like it’s trying to sell you that tank. “Look at this tank. It’s a good tank. You know you want tank.”

An extremely low Swimming River Reservoir in NJ.

Reservoirs like Swimming River collect water for treatment and usage, depending on your area. Be cautious if you visit a reservoir. Some allow for water sports and activities such as kayaking, swimming, etc. Others, like Swimming River, do not.

Check it out for a cool study and pretty cool video of shiners making noise!

So…. I think the interview went well, and, plus, I got to see an old friend. One of the sharks from the aquarium I volunteer at moved to this aquarium a few years back. It was nice to see a familiar face.

…. bet you don’t hear that phrase often in reference to an elasmobranch.

Good morning, starshine!

…. the Earth says, “Hello!”

So, yeah, today’s going to be a good day. I had a wonderful day at the aquarium yesterday (they have blubber jellies now!!!!!). I got to watch in hilarity as the aquarists worked on a new LED set-up that’s wifi controlled to create different light…

Aw! I’m sorry to have teased you. No, the “worst cased Ontario” means I’m a tremendous fan of Trailer Park Boys (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trailer_Park_Boys). It’s one of many Rickyisms such as…..

  • Bagmitten (badmitten)
  • Can you give me a bit of credjudice? (Can you give me a bit of credit?)
  • Denial and Error (Trial and Error)
  • Ironland (Ireland)
  • Rakins (racoons)
  • Radies (rabies)
  • Sasparilla (salmonella).
  • Survival of the fitness (survival of the fittest)
  • Rocket appliances (rocket science)

I keep saying that I need to make a series of posts about Orangie (Ricky’s pet goldfish in a bowl who predictably dies a series of deaths through the newest season).

…. the Earth says, “Hello!”

So, yeah, today’s going to be a good day. I had a wonderful day at the aquarium yesterday (they have blubber jellies now!!!!!). I got to watch in hilarity as the aquarists worked on a new LED set-up that’s wifi controlled to create different light shows, including lightning flashes that sent grown men and women of the staff squealing in delight like children (….. I did, too).

Today, I’m off from work to head to an interview for an aquarist position. Worst cased Ontario, it’s at an aquarium I’ve never been to before, so I’ll at least get to visit a new aquarium for me on my birthday.

….. and, oh yeah, it’s my birthday.
