ok so there's actually just one fish
and...not so much a blue one...
but i wanted a clever title, ok?
the point is.
the first of the new roommates arrived last Saturday!
after an adventure to a sketchy pet store with this girl
and after overcoming my anxiety about all the fish tanks
(i'll blog about that phobia sometime, don't worry)
we found our lovely little red friend
we debated naming him after characters from different TV shows
also considered naming him Napoleon...
...just so we could call him Nappy for short.
anyway, because of our love for a certain Jane Austen plotline
(mostly this version)
we settled on Mr. Collins
but of course, Mr. Napoleon Collins
and naturally, his rapper name is Nappy C
he's pretty happy. he lives by Jesus.
(no really....his casa is next to a statue of Jesus.
he's a very pious little aquatic creature.)
oh, we got a hanging plant too.
and a lecture from the plant man, keith.
he told us to treat it like a best friend
and get to know it
(yes, he really said that)
i gave it a bath in the sink this morning
and we chatted politics and economics....or boys, maybe.
consider us officially bonded.
