That makes perfect sense Pimpernel, thank you. Im actually going to try to buy a five gallon tank for my betta today, see how he likes that. Ive never gone all out for a fish before.

I had a water plant from pet smart before (before the bamboo) and it totally rotted itself in the water, it was so gross and smelly.

I read somewhere that leftover betta food makes them sick so you have to make sure to watch that they eat it. I sit there and watch him eat each little morsel.

Now theyre at the bottom, but I used to have these little shells I put in the bowl, and since I dropped them right on top, they floated on top for a while, and he loved poking at them and seeing them bob up and down. Until he knocked the air of of them and they floated to the bottom.

Im so excited about getting a new tank.

Ive already mentioned that I have a one gallon vase I keep my fishy, Oscar, in. He seems to like it. And its really easy for me to clean the water, I just transfer him between the old and new filtered one. But when you start getting a bigger tank and more fish, Im assuming once you get a built in filter, you wont have to actually take the water out?

wow thank you, Ive been looking for a "friend" to put in with my betta, but didnt know which were compatible. I didnt want to come back from work one day and find a dead fish in there.
14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Best Place to buy a sewing machine on: March 03, 2006 01:19:01 PM
When I lived with my mom I was free to use hers, it was a pretty boring and old sewing machine. But now that Ive moved away (and its been a while since), Id love to get my own. My query is not which machine to buy, because when I see the one I want, I'll know - but which places are the best to buy them from? So there are obviously sewing stores, then craft places like joann or michaels, but then there are stores like sears, walmart, etc... and Im now totally confused about where I should go. Since many of you awesome sewers probably have gone through this before, I would REALLY appreciate some input, it would help me more than you could believe.

I want something sturdy, with lots of features, dependable, but not way overpriced. Ive never worked with a good quality sewing machine, and I would love to get one that works great, for myself.

16  UNITED STATES / Nevada / conventions/tradeshows on: February 28, 2006 12:10:56 PM
this last week, I went to three different clothing trade shows at the convention centers. I had never been to any in my life, so I took up the opportunity.

1. Off Price Market Trade show - at the Sands, it was actually really disappointing. Most of the clothes there were pretty unoriginal and for people over 40. Lots of whatever clothes. Looked like where the indoor swapmeet gets its clothes.

2. Project Trade Show - also at the Sands, upper level. This was the show to be at, there were mostly up and coming brands and a few designer/more recognizable brands here. Everyone was edgy, and modern, and fun to look at. I got tons of free stuff - from bags, shirts, watches, scarves, and tons of magazines. We even saw Usher, hahah. It was really nice actually, just to see lots of people making their dreams of having their own stores, come true (its one of my dreams).

3. Magic Convention - at the Hilton convention. I guess this was the Big show, but in all honesty, I was  underwhelmed. It was like a mixture of the two above mentioned trade shows. It was weird, like extremes. Really expensive brands showcasing, along with a bunch of generic clothing labels. The only difference being, was that it was huge, the mens and womens area had whole different sections. I dont see what the hoopla was about, it wasnt that great.

next year, you guys should go to the Project show, or the Pool Trade show (I missed out on that one, but heard it was really good too). and that was my run down of the shows. Probably some of the advantages of living in las vegas, is getting into these things for free Smiley

I agree, that does look like it would be an amazing textile print.

thank you  Smiley

as I said, Im afraid of Goofy, and steered COMPLETELY clear of the character. the mickey face in the picture is actually Minnie. While we were getting in line for space mountain, minnie came around, but she was attacked by like a million people, I wasnt too close, but she decided to run away from everyone and ran right by me, we almost crashed, so I took the picture.

to explain the doll picture- on main street (at the entrance) there is a shop with different disney movie scenes going on. there happened to be one that was the little mermaid, and it just so happened I had dyed my hair red not too long before. my boyfriend to me to mimick the doll, it was just freaky after the pictures got developed that he was in the picture too, taking the photo.

the super blurry pictures are a) the winnie the pooh ride b) some otherdox jewish guys standing around c)the thai dollies on its a small world

Im dying to go back, but now that I moved out of California, these are the things I miss the most sometimes.
