As for me, I had to beg the world wide web for help again. The options were very slim.
And that was the winner. An X-ray tetra. These little guys have transparent bodies, meaning you can see their innards. Talk about no privacy.
Next up, it's of course time for the Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by friends at 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader.
Here are the fantastic fill-ins our hosts provided for us this week:
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is _________.
2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say _________.
3. I have a hard time _________.
4. I really enjoy _________.
And here's how I fared:
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is Benvenuto by Seymour Reit.
(Has anyone else even heard of this book? Along with The Hobbit, this is one the books that I always remember my dad reading to my sister and me when we were little. This one is about a little boy in New York who brings a dragon home in hopes of keeping it as a pet. Though it's been ages since I've even seen a copy of this book, I always loved it and would of course love to see a fun movie version of it. Now, excuse me while I go find a copy of this to read again.)
2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say, "The best things in life are furry."
(You know that saying, "The best things in life are free." Well, I just very recently came across this furry play on that saying, and I can't get it out of my head. I would love to create a billboard with that saying, promoting animal adoption and rescue.)
3. I have a hard time being a "people person".
(I would like to say that I'm not antisocial, but let's be honest, I kind of am. It's certainly not that I don't like people, and I seem to get along fine with others, but I have nevertheless never been anything close to resembling an extrovert. I've never been a fan of going out and the like. Staying home and vegging with my furbabies is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. I sort of feel bad admitting this, but I'm even that kind of person who looks out the window before stepping outside, you know, to make sure none of the chatty neighbors are out there lying in wait. That probably makes me sound horrible.)
4. I really enjoy peanut butter and banana smoothies.
(I don't know why I felt compelled to put this answer, but perhaps it has a little to do with my newfound love of these goodies. Due to some faulty wiring in my gastrointestinal system and some resulting dietary restrictions, the only way I can have these smoothies is with frozen bananas, almond milk, and powdered peanuts. But that's okay, because I recently discovered that they taste mouthwateringly good this way, and I drink at least one a day.)
Okay, so who's ready for Eddy?
I hope you weren't looking for any great masterpiece shots this time around. Elusive Eddy was being, well, elusive. She simply refused to look at the camera.
I guess we'll have to just settle on these shots of her lovely whiskers.
Happy Friday to all!
Our Tip of the Day:Yesterday's tip was one on upcycling, so how about another one along those lines? If you have spare drinking pitchers lying around, you could use them to both store and pour your furbaby's food or treats. When closed up, the pitcher can help keep your pup or kitty's food fresh, which is important not only to prevent spoilage but also to keep finicky furbabies interested with fresh food. Then, all you have to do is twist the lid and pour out a bowl of goodies for them. You can be a pawesome fur parent and upcycle at the same time!
