@morglanc... see what you have done to our brains? Cheesy Wait... that may not be a good thing to say... you know... with zombies an all... Smiley Oh, and I do think you'd enjoy the Anita books. I've only read 2 in the series, and I'm looking forward to reading more.

@craftybeachgirl... someone needs to report that and get all the facts. Maybe we can send some zombie mermaids her way...

Not sure they'd (the zombie merpeeps) do any good as someone who'd do something like that is bound not to have any (brains, that is).  
On another topic, I went to the craft store today and they were having a "coupon commotion" sale. Speaking of Dangerous....... Cheesy

Found this online while doing some mermaid (merpeople) research and thought it would be an interesting read:

Merpeople
Written by Charles Smith

Hair Colors: Brown, Blonde, Red, Sea-blue, Sea-green.
Eye Colors: Blue, Green, Moonlight-silver, Hazel, Gray, Amber.

Height:
Males: 6'1"+4d8 inches        Females: 5'9" +4d8 inches
Weight:
Males: 75 lbs. +2d10 lbs.      Females: 60 lbs. +2d8 lbs.
Lifespan: 150 +3d8 years.
Source: Sailors' legends/mythology.

Appearance: A Merperson looks like a human being from the waist up, only most Merpeople possess an almost irrestible natural handsomeness/beauty that often appeals strongly to the opposite gender of the Merperson in question. From the waist down, Merpeople have the scaled tail of a fish. The tail ends in two curving fins and is usually green-scaled, though blue and pearl are not uncommon. Merpeople have the height, hair, and eye colors of human beings as well as sea-toned blue and green hair and a luminous silver eye color reminiscient of moonlight on a clear lake. Merpeople have a lesser weight than humans due to their unique humanoid/fish anatomy and physiological makeup.

Behavior: The Merpeople are generally a nice people, though somewhat wary and suspicious of outsiders, especially of humans. This wariness comes about because human fishers often make merpeople for fish and try to catch them. They usually get the young, naive children. In addition, for centuries now sailors have hunted the elusive mermaids for their legendary beauty. As a result, most mermaids tend to shy away from humans and many mermen have become fiercely protective of the mermaids. The Merpeople get on quite well with most other species, especially sea-dwellers.

Society: The Merpeople are structured under a parlimentary monarchy. There is a King and Queen who wield great power, but there exists a Parliament that has powers of its' own. Due to a bad experience in Merpeople history when a tyrannical King came to power and made life miserable for the people, most Merpeople have a distrust of absolute monarchy and so they limit it via Parliament.

Racial Abilities: The Merpeople have a natural resistance to water damage and they can breathe water. They have retained the ability to breathe air and the somewhat mystical-seeming ability to change their lower fins into human legs for faster travel. The Merpeople, as noted before, have an innate but intense charm, usually attracting members of the opposite gender to them. On the downside, the Merpeople do suffer extreme weakness if they do not immerse themselves in water for at least three hours a day. The Merpeople also have a phobia of fire, probably due to their half-fish nature, and extreme sunlight weakens them as the Merpeople have adapted to the dark undersea.

Job Restrictions: Merpeople make surprisingly strong fighters, having adapted to the rigors of deep-sea life. They make fair magicians, but magic has never been a major focus of Merpeople life.

Recommended Genres: High Fantasy.

WOW...I will fill yo all in later....SHit she is about to get fed to the wicked merpeople...Her school is on the ocean and my mom wants to feed her to the sharks...Sad My daughter asked my mom "Lolly, will she hit me too!" OMG my mom would knife some old bat over that little one, take them on the boat and chum the sharks and circle till the body is gone LOL..No really I think she would if anyone ever hurt my little ones...

Wow craftybeachgirl! I would be upset too! I'm glad your mom isn't being silent about it, that's the only way to make sure it doesn't happen again. Good for both of you!

On the swap note, I have been doing some minor stalking and have ordered a few supplies online. I will probably get started on a few crafts in the next couple of days.

Yes, I'm definitely glad your mom isn't staying quiet. That's an absolutely horrible thing for a child to get slapped, even worse if it's by someone that is supposed to be aiding! I hope she gets banned from helping in schools...
