ANOTHER MURDER, police suspect a serial killer...

Another corpse was found floating in the aquarium and we fear that we have a serial killer on our hands.  The prime suspects are the two striped Kribs who happen to be the only fish in the tank with their fins still in tact.  They have been placed under surveillance in the small tank.  The guppies were moved back into the main tank under the witness protection program.  Rocky does not know yet.  She is still at school.  I did not make the mistake of performing the last rites without her, after all it was her fish.  Final viewing will be at 4 pm, and the burial at sea will commence at the local Flush-atorium immediately after.

I am a little peeved with my youngest son Art right now.  He did a load of dishes for me the day before yesterday and was supposed to put them away before he went to bed last night... he didn't.  So today, when he got home early from school and wanted to go to his friend's house, I said yes... on the condition that he empty the dishwasher first.  Before he left he assured me that he had put away the clean dishes and the only ones remaining were ones that were still dirty.  I was expecting to see a couple of dishes in the dishwasher... I was NOT expecting to find it still FULL!  Well, no wonder the dishes didn't get cleaned, they were jammed in there so tight that the water wasn't able to get to them.  And contrary to his promise... he did NOT rinse the dishes first.  There were still 3 course meals on most of the plates!  One bowl still had lasagna in it.  Not a little piece of noodle, not a little bit of sause, a whole fricken serving... 2 layers of pasta, cheese and sauce!  I'm tempted to serve it to him for supper.  It might not be fresh, but its clean!

My 21st Wedding Anniversay is this Friday.  My husband asked me where I wanted to go for dinner.  When I replied 'Red Lobster' he was almost disapproving.  Why do some people do that... ask what you want and then try to sway you into wanting what they want you to want?  Why even ask if you don't intend on honoring the request.  Actually I know that Dickidoo was just trying to offer me a really special night out for an occasion that almost wasn't.  But I don't need 4 forks and 2 spoons to eat my meal.  I can't tell just by taste the difference between a 30 year old bottle of wine and a 2 year old twist-top jug.  I don't need a bi-lingual translator to read me the dessert menu.  I just need good company, and thats already been taken care of.  Red Lobster is fine dear, thank you!

Well, Rocky has just gotten home and isn't taking the news too well.  She has decided to bury the fish beside the hermit crab.  I need to go and pay my last respects.  Poor Little Rocky.

But, maybe they are evil fish from that other dimension... like in South Park... Yeah that's it, and when they get done with the other fish they will start on the larger pets, and then finally...... <eg> Look on the bright side, they should attack the smaller ones (children) first....

Not much luck with the fish.  Poor Rocky is right.  Get her a hamster or gerbil, they last longer.  Hope you have a wonderful anniversary.  I hear ya on the swaying of plans.  Mine will do that from time to time and I get pissed off.
