Laurel has refrained from asking for a little sister again since my last post, but I had a Frappucino anyway. It was quite satisfying, although I couldn't taste much. We're all on the mend from the cold now, although how long it will take for everyone to reach their usual values of normal again remains to be seen.

While recuperating, I've been amusing myself by browsing household products at target.com and bed/bath/kitchen places. It's much more pleasant than actually going in those stores, plus some of the web-only offers crack me up, like a doormat that reads "Come back with a warrant." On the other hand, I am now lusting after a Tablecraft straw dispenser and a dry food dispenser for cereal.

We have two new residents in the bedroom's freshwater tank after Vogon spotted an aisle end cap full of bettas in little plastic tubs at Wal-Mart. They seem to be settling in well, though they have yet to be named -- one's red and one's (mostly) blue, so a Dr. Seuss reference might be in order.

Bettas sold as pets are invariably male (the females are much smaller, and lack the pretty fins) and will fight eachother to the death, which is why they're always sold in cups all by their lonesome.

Re: Careful!
Thanks for the warning. So far they mostly ignore each other and hang out on opposite sides of the tank (~35 gallon) although I occasionally chant "fight, fight!" when I walk by.

I found this link somewhere on lj. I figured if you have not tried it you might be interested! http://www.charmin.com/en_us/pages/offers_pttraining.shtml

Mike will thank you later when I am pestering him to let me buy the dry food dispenser. =)

Thanks for the link, I think Laurel will really like it. (:

I first saw the dry food dispenser in the Cooking.com paper catalog, but it only listed the stainless steel ones so I was put off by the price. I forgot about them until I found them on target.com yesterday. I plan to buy one to make breakfast time smoother here.

I thought the same thing when I ran across the link. Anything to help the potty training process is a plus. Especially if it is free.

I would prefer the stainless steel because that is the all around theme in my kitchen. If the price is too bad I will have to settle for the one you linked too. I wonder how fresh it keeps the cereal?
