About… oh… eight or nine months ago Lena and I went out looking for driftwood to put in our new aquariums. We found lots of cool pieces, Florida being a swampy place, and we began treating the wood according to a well-respected aquarium book we had purchased for just such esoteric information. It took about three weeks, and seemed excessively thorough.
This morning Lena found a fiddler crab in her tank. All of the fish are big and the crab poses no particular threat, so she let it be. But still, it was an oddity.
Maybe Walt Disney’s head is frozen in an underground bunker along with Hitler and Howard Hughes and Serpentor of COBRA, but I bet he won’t get as much milage as that little crab got out of that piece of driftwood.
The Wednesday Video
This is my favorite piece of religious celebration ever. In it, we sing happily over the idea that god is going to come and kill us and take us back to heaven where we will no longer have access to anything good for breakfast.
This video is just a bit over five minutes long, and while it’s entertaining throughout, you’ve probably got the idea after the first minute to minute and a half. Although the list of things that god isn’t going to let us eat is inventive and funny, (and watching the stoned-looking woman swaying from side to side is eerily hypnotic) if you watch the whole 5 minutes you will get the very repetitive tune stuck in your head until the next time you wash the inside of skull out with boiling coffee.
Here’s your video. I’ll be at Starbucks.
