I guess I'm just not that hilarious today. But don't worry, tomorrow is still another day!

I'm sitting on the couch, eating some rocky road ice cream (Blue Bell, yum), trying to think of something clever and witty to write about.

I read Harry Potter (mock me if you must). I am impressed by the J.K. Rowling's literary genius; her ability to tie in tiny details to the main plot 3000 pages later is astounding! aaaand I really like magic.
In case you haven't read the books, there is a magical school called Hogwarts, and it is divided into 4 houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. I'll give you a brief run-down on each one.
Gryffindor (Lion): The students in Gryffindor are courageous, chivalrous, daring, and loyal. Just imagine King Arthur as a wizard, he's probably be in Gryffindor.
Slytherin (Snake): Slytherin's students are cunning, ambitious, clever, resourceful, and determined. And yes, sometimes evil.
Ravenclaw (Raven): Ravenclaw=smart. They are very intelligent, witty, academically motivated and talented. Like the kid in high school who took all AP classes and asked for extra homework.
Hufflepuff (Badger): Let's just see what the sorting hat has to say, "Dear Hufflepuff, she took the rest and taught them all she knew." So basically, Hufflepuff takes the kids who aren't brave, aren't cunning, and aren't smart. And badgers? Really? That really strikes fear into the hearts of their opponents. Which actually, they probably don't have any opponents, because they're pretty boring.
Carrie and I have discussed this more than once. I would love to be in Gryffindor, Ravenclaw would be ok, and I could even live with Slytherin. But if that hat said, "HUFFLEPUFF!" I would get back on the train and go home. I'd rather be a muggle.

One of the girls from school moved to Nebraska, and didn't think her fish would make the trip, so she gave them to us (thanks Caren!)! They are so fun! We have 5 fish: 3 rosy barbs, a little catfish and a sucker-fish!
The tank is set up in Portia's room, and she loves watching them swim around. I find the sound of the tank very soothing, maybe it will entice Portia to sleep in her crib haha!
