New Favorite Thing

Yes, I realize I title a lot of blog entries, "New Favorite Thing." Can't help it. I'm fickle like that and I frequently have new favorite things. I think that's a wonderful quality. But on to the cool new thing.


I have new animals in the house!

Not only did sis-in-law Liz come to LA for Keith's big birthday weekend, throw a suprise '80s party for him and Shon, and bring me a Pilates circle for way cool workouts, she also brought me a family of shrimp. A family of shrimp who live in a hermetically sealed ecosystem that is color coordinated for our cubby-filled office.

OMG, this is so so so so the coolest thing I've ever seen! Little red shrimp-folk are swimming around in this lovely glass container, occassionally stopping to sleep on branches of one plant, then heading over to another for feeding and pooping. There is no need to feed, change the water for, or otherwise take care of these creatures. And they live for YEARS!!!!!!!!! I think Liz said that Galen's have been kicking for like ten years or something. I can't even imagine that! It's just so cool!

Truly, I am a fan of the odd. And this is WAY up my alley. So, when you come over to visit me now, you'll not only see crazy kitties (one of whom has taken to chasing her tail for a half-hour a night atop the cubbies--guess which one) and the redecorated office structure/system, you'll also meet the modern day seamonkeys! MUNKEYS!!!!!! Yay! Thanks, Liz! You rule!

Those Eco-Spheres are so vool. The small ones don't last as long as the big ones do, but they can last a long time.
