My cousins and I used to always go to Wonderland, so we made a "cousins" day of it. Even Abbey, our "honourary cousin" came! We basically started with the biggest roller coaster in the park, and rode it twice back to back, to get my nerve up. It was only a couple years old, and while scary and very very big (deserving of the name "Behemoth"), was smooth sailing. We got there early and beat many of the lines and were able to ride a lot of the rides. After Lunch we planned out our coasters more poorly, riding the Vortex, Thunder Run, some kind of spinning, flipping ride, then The Bat, which makes you do loops backwards and forwards, and left us all with headaches, so we settled for a ride on the swings and a rest on the grass. I remember the days when we could ride the roller coasters all day without a second thought. Today, I feel like I've been in a car crash or something, and my voice... my voice! I sound like an old lady because I screamed bloody murder on every single ride (ok, except for the swings.) We had a fantastic time though, and I kinda already want to go back.
|mmm... funnel cake!|
It was very fun. I hope my voice recovers soon. I sound ridiculous.
Today I take Oliver for his follow-up Vet appointment, which will take up a good chunk of my morning because I have to walk him there, and walking anywhere with Oliver takes a very, very long time. Everything must be sniffed!
Our green spotted puffer fish, Boris, has been having some weird problems lately. I'm not really a fish person, but Boris is a very cool fish, very interactive as far as fish goes. Every morning, I go into the room, turn on the light in his tank, and he swims up to the top waiting for me to feed him. The other day, he just swam stupidly around in the bottom corner and didn't even acknowledge his food, which is strange for a puffer, they are voracious. The next day it was the same thing. The third day, he swam to the top, but it seemed as though he couldn't see his food. He was looking for it, but couldn't see where it was. His eyes were clear, black, normal looking, no signs of any disease... so Dan has done several water changes, added some salt to the water, and we put some feeder fish in and he seems to be doing better. I just suddenly realized how damn attached I am to this fish... which is pretty hilarious. But look at him, he's adorable, even as a blur! We estimate that Boris is probably about 8 years old, and I understand that these fish can live into their teens, so hopefully this was just a reaction to low salinity in the water and he will get back to normal soon!
