I keep fish. Until today I had three weather loaches, Sixteen White Cloud Mountain Minnows, and a male and two female American-Flag Fish. So called because the males look like the American Flag. They're mostly vegetarian, and the males especially, are renowned for being belligerent arseholes. Compatible tankmates should be "robust enough to survive or fast enough to escape" They get to two-and-a-half inches long (the females are a little smaller). And they look like this:




I say, until today, because today I found "Mr Grumpy" tangled up in some thread I'd used to attach moss to a piece of wood. The thread had been wrapped around the wood, and a piece of rootlet, and he'd got in between it, probably to munch on a bit of algae (Like most fish they're perpetually hungry, but apparently are a little calmer if they've got something to snack on throughout the day. The stereotypes just keep building up don't they? Its most unfair) he'd got trapped, and suffocated.

:-(

Mr Grumpy. c2010- 7th November 2011. Leaves behind two female companions, but no children.

Like everyone else I grew up on the work of Smallfilms. Bagpuss, Ivor the Engine, Nogging the Nog, and my personal favourite, the Clangers.



Thank-you Oliver Postgate, for all you have done.

Oh crap...

Ok so flatmate S moved out about two weeks ago. He was the one with his name on every bill bar the interweb / tv (which I pay). Flatmate A came home today to find two men from the electricity people wanting to cut off our power. Which was "nice". So he gave them £200 of a £500 bill (including the non-payment fine). Turns out flatmate S hasn't been paying the bills. I'm not entirely surprised. He never actually asked me for any money for them ever. I think the first thing I said to him was "what about bills?". Did I hear anything else ever again? No.

God knows what state the other bills are in. I really don't think I want to look.

Words will be had with this chap...  Baseball bats would be involved if I didn't need money out of him...

In other news the NHM don't even seem to want me as a gallery assistant.  I might as well curl up and die...
