I’m back at work today. I really don't want to be here, but I can’t afford to stay home without pay. Plus, my neck is now at around 90%. And I brought my neck brace to work, in case I need it.
While I don’t particularly like my walk to work, this morning was interesting. I saw a transport truck (18-wheeler for you country types) going the wrong way down one-way Richmond St, while the driver talked into his phone. About 3 seconds later a couple of police cars confronted him, lights flashing. I hope they charge him with everything they can – a truck must be 10 times as dangerous as a car…
Also on the weekend, I bought more fish for my aquarium. Now along with the 6 Dwarf Spotted Danios, I’ve got 4 Peppered Cory Cats. They’re pretty spastic and never stop moving or playing. It was funny to watch the Danios, who had the tank to themselves for a month, get used to the newcomers. They went from uncharacteristically wandering around the aquarium as they were alone, to schooling – roaming the tank as a gang. There’s no aggression, but you can see confusion as one Danio will try to play with a Cory and then realize that it’s not his kin and rush away back to the group. And with all the extra motion in the tank, the cats have started to watch. That appeals to my sick “coliseum” tendencies.
I'm really enjoying these fish, but it's still a surprise interest for me.
