Whitey the Second is dead

Yeah, that was fast.

But we didn't get Whitey the Third yet.  The death of a second fish in less than a week is apparently much less some people.  I'm thinking some kids would be upset.  But Opie just wanted to bury this one in the garden too, and then run happily along with his day.

I don't think I'll ever fully figure that kid out.

I was having serious thoughts a little earlier today.  About naked pregnancy pictures.  I was thinking, "Seriously, WHY?!!!!" 

You know those pictures where the woman is all bare chested, and the man is all bare chested and they're embracing risque-ly and things are barely being covered and people go, "Awwwwww, your belly is so......cute."  Because they're too busy thinking, "Holy cow, I can almost see a nipple, and why would you want to show that much skin when all pregnant women tend to not look super fabulous (I don't care how round and perfect your belly is)."

And then when the naked people's child is a 15 year old girl with her first crush sitting on the couch looking at the family picture album, and then comes across the naked pictures of her parents - - yeah, that's going to go over REALLY WELL.

How did the naked pregnancy pictures ever become a fad anyway?

You know that kidney stone?  It's evil.  But they tend to be that way.

I've had a lot of down time lately.  Evil kidneys require down time.  They also require all things Netflix (since I had already seen all the current episodes of Ghost Hunters International on Hulu). 

I kind of get obsessive though, when it comes to tv series and books and, oh, kind of everything.  But being obsessive is actually pretty distracting from debilitating kidney pain.  And since I've exhausted all the contemporary episodes of Dr. Who, and the big-eared-alien show Roswell, I started a new series.  Something I never thought I'd watch.  Something awesome and stupidly addictive:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

(I figured with 7 seasons of Buffy and the whatever amount of seasons of Angel, I would be set if this kidney stone decides to torture me indefinitely.)

I'm really liking it though.  Except that I'm on season 3 now, and I'm fairly convinced that it's the season of ugly pants.  But other than that, fabulous.  (In a stupidly addictive way, of course.)

However, I have come away with an extremely thought provoking question:

David Borneaz: more attractive as the younger Angel?

Or the older Seely Booth?

'Cause I'm obsessed with Bones too, and since it predated this whole Buffy thing I'm voting for the older.  Also I think I'm getting old, and therefore I guess I find older men more attractive...which is kind of sad when you think about it.

I think I'm going to have to send a mugshot of you to all the pet stores in your areas, to beware.

And I think Angel was better looking younger. But I am definitely Team Spike. Much sexier.

Man, those were the awesome vampire days. No sparkly nipples.

Is that even a question? Booth all the way. There is just something about a man in a suit. . . .

I'm just a tad bit obsessed with Bones as well. . . .

I used to be obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer---seriously, loved it. Although...the sixth and seven seasons didn't do a lot for me. I've never watched Bones---but comparing the two pictures, I'd have to say he's more attractive in the second, so it's not just your previous bias saying that.

Hope you start to recover soon. But not so soon that you can't enjoy all of BTVS:)

I never thought I could love anyone more than I did Angel (although the show was a little... meh) and then I met Agent Seely Booth and well, Angel who?

I've had the exact same thought about getting older and finding older men attractive only I don't think it's sad, just interesting.

Well that was quick! Guess you'd better avoid getting another Whitey- that trend appears to be over! LOL!

I don't get the pregnancy pics either. I think they'll be like the 'champagne glass' photos of the 80's. I'm cool with pg pics but the naked or near naked stuff is creepy.

Wow. I hear some pet stores have a couple of week guarantee or something, so you can get your dead fish replaced. Not sure what store, though.

I am with you on the naked prego pictures. So weird. Then again, I have stretch mark belly, so I wouldn't shoot that anyway!
