Pretty Much the Coolest Thing in the World

I just don’t understand why some people aren’t as interested in deep sea life as I am! Weird!

Are all my readers gone? It’s been a week since I posted anything of substance. Well my friends, I have been busy drawing. I have 3 art jobs to catch up on and I took 5 days off my day job to work on them. I went from practically never watching TV to watching hour after hour day after day. So I’m caught up on all the dumb commercials. Through an amazing set of circumstances, I haven’t missed an episode of America’s Next Top Model since the new season started. Last night they got rid of my second favourite. I liked her because she wasn’t stupidly skinny. Toren’s top model is, of course, the one with the short, dyed red hair, Molly Sue.

I’ve also been watching a lot of Turner Classic Movies. I love that channel. LOVE IT! And I’ve been taping some science documentaries.

The other night I had a dream that Taylor and I were on a Greyhound to Chilliwack. I sat next to a girl who happened to be incredibly cute and we bonded over a Fugazi song. I missed my stop when we got to Chilliwack (the Greyhound became a city bus) so she invited me to her place. It was a great way to start a dream but then it became an exercise in frustration as I met her crazy grandma and I spent the rest of the dream trying to find my wallet in my backpack.

  1. One of the coolest things about deep sea angler fish is that several species have “parasitic males”:

    Males are small, and attach to a female with their teeth. The teeth and jaw then gradually recede and the circulatory systems of the two fish merge. They become irreversibly joined. Males then provide a constant supply of sperm to the female. Probably an adaptation because of the difficulty of finding a mate in some deep sea situations. (Source)

    Basically, once attached, the males degenerate until they are pretty much nothing but a sack of gonads.
