Time must be passing
I'm out of clean underwear again.

and it's time to water the plants.

In other news, the sick fish isn't dead yet but he seems to be getting worse - the infection is visibly spreading up his head. Then again, I think he's eating. But only when I'm not looking.

I set their clock back last night. Lazy fish, I thought, then- oh.

I'm starting to know quite a bit about Nigeria, which I'm studying for work. Then again, whenever I get smarter about stuff around the world, it hits me again how little I know. Like, Venezuela. Keith and I were talking about Venezuela. They produce 3.2 million barrels of oil a day. Who knew? Ok, you probably did. I was clueless, see?

I guess there's only so many topics a person can know thoroughly. I know a lot skimmingly. Conrunning I know pretty thoroughly. What else? Some about cooking. Some about dancing. Some about cognitive psychology. *sigh* maybe that's not a productive feel-good sort of question right now. I'm fighting premenstrual depression already, better not to beat myself up about what I don't know, in the middle of everything else.

right?

right.

I certainly hope those two statements aren't connected!

Send me a pic of the fish and it's symptoms? I might be able to offer some suggestions.

And <hugs>

Ah. I had that in my oscar, and he lived years with it (mostly recovered, then I sold him off because had outgrown the tank). The spots can be healed with some antibiotics if looking really bad, but the most important thing is lots and lots of water changes.

Are there antibiotics? I can post pictures once I'm home, but it does look bad. All the oscars have it to a small degree but hole in the head (as we've come to call him) has a big hole right in the middle of his forehead. We did a massive water change two weeks ago before I went to San Francisco. I'm going to Austin this weekend so I probably won't get to another until next week though I'll change the filter and add some water tonight or tomorrow. It's a lot easier to do a water change with at least two people.

...

ok, I called The Fish Doctors and the guys there recommends metronitozol. I'll get some next week when I'm next in Ypsi, assuming the fish lasts that long, but I think he will.

waves...

We're right in Ypsi, and I work right down the road from you..

If you let me know what to pick up I can get it for you (and even deliver!)

You work down the road from me? From my house or from my work? It would be awesome if you could pick me up some Metronitozol (I might not be spelling it right, but it's for hole in the head disease for an Oscar) and also some freeze-dried krill. Do you know where the fish doctors are? Next to the putputt course?

I'm actually going to be out of town from Friday until Sunday, so if you could get that to me tomorrow, that would be doubleplusgood.

Wow. it's so nice of you to offer to do this!

You strike me as one who knows a fair amount about a fair bit. Don't beat yourself up - I don't know of a time when it's helpful.
