Went to the local reptile expo this afternoon and added a couple of members to the family. A male knight anole (anolis equestris), and the sweetest female pinstripe ball python I've ever met.

I'm really happy with them both, but I bonded instantly with the python, of course. She's very calm and while she's curious, she's also almost shy.

I can't wait to get to know them both.

I haven't named either, yet.

So the Behemoth had been with me for a couple of months now. He's finally, finally on a normal eat-poop schedule.

When I first got him, he'd eat anything and everything given him, much more than he actually needed, and then didn't seem to be passing much through. Since he'd been on sand prior, I was very worried about impaction, but he's been cleared, and he's finally on a proper eating cycle. Relief!

And he's starting to slim down. I've adjusted his diet and made sure to get him lots of exercise. I wish that would work so easily for me!

To the publications with whom we advertise,

If my submission instructions are to upload the pdf to a specific folder via FTP, please, please, PLEASE, for the love of my sanity, CHECK that folder before freaking out and contacting the ad rep, who also does not check before freaking out and contacting me as to why I did not send the ad.

It would save everyone a lot of time and stress if you just check. Even just once. Especially, especially if it had happened before and you've checked before and the ad was right there.

Silly Tiffany, checking before freaking out is for rubes.  You should know this by now.

About six snow plow trucks just passed us getting ready for tonight.

We're expecting an inch to an inch and a half of snow.

I guess so. I got this through my email, so I guess it's working.

What sort of water fixtures have you found effective for your reptiles?

Specifically for chameleons and bearded dragons, but any suggestions would be welcome.

I have tried some of the reptile oriented warterfalls, etc.  I have also tried the moving water cat dishes with little success.  Especially for the beardie, I am looking for something with a large basin he can soak in, but that also has moving water, so that he'll actually use it.

For the record, I'm not asking how to get them water. I do the daily misting and drip cups for the chams, and I soak the beardie regularly (and mist him, he likes that).  However, I've been trying to find something that I can install in the enclosures that can be functional and decorative, and would provided a constant source of running water.  I'm always trying to improve what I have. 

I was thinking about trying out some fish tank filtering systems, but honestly water fixtures are not my area of expertise, so I thought I'd see what other people have had success with before I go out and spend a bunch of money on something I'm probably going to mess up. :)

The bath tub! Mine get a bath once a week.

Don't forget, too much humidity is bad for beardies - respiratory infection territory.

I'm currently testing a solar panel attached to a mini pump, but my guys generally like to park their bums in their water dish, movement or not. 

I use an automated rain system for the gecko tank.

How I know he wants to be let out. 

Oh gosh, it really is hilarious. He's just leaning propped up against the doors, staring out at me balefully.

I can't even let him out, I'm laughing so hard. 

Update: he didn't actually want out after all. After opening the doors, he remained plastered against the air in the same position until a few moments ago, when he turned around, clambered up his favorite perch and is now watching me with a superior expression, as if he won one over on me. I wonder what battle he thinks he's won...

Beardies are a lot less angsty in breeding season.

Turns out that given enough basic supplies, I'm quite happy to hermit inside my house forever.

I'm not sure that's entirely healthy.

I didn't know that "food historian" was an actual thing, but now I want to be one.

I know, it seems like something made up! I wouldn't have known about it if
I hadn't watched Good Eats (which basically is like Myth Busters meets
cooking. There's a lot of science and fun stuff along with learning how to
cook.)

I took my car to the dealership for inspection since it's free. They told me I had a tag light out. I went and got another to replace it, stated putting it in myself, only to find I didn't even need it. They literally unscrewed it just a little so that it had stopped working. And wanted to charge me $25 for a bulb change.

And wasted a lot of my time making me wait for my car so I could put the bulb in. It took them over half an hour to put the rejection sticker on after they called me with the results and I arrived to put the light in.

I'm afraid to say it does happen. I'm trying to be a solid core in my field - I've seen some awful things in sales elsewhere, and I aim to have integrity in business.

Does this make sense to anyone else?

I'm moving.  I will also be working from home starting this month.  My company recommended Verizon FiOS to connect into their system because (they say) it is faster.  While on the Verizon wireless site, a chat box appeared asking me if I needed any help, so I thought I'd just ask if FiOS was available at my new house.  This is what followed after giving her my new address:

"(Verizon Agent).: I see there is Comcast in your area for home services.

You: Yes there is. Does that mean verizon would not be?

(Verizon Agent): I can just see there is Comcast in your area. Verizon Fios is a separate company from us here in the Verizon chats. We partner with Comcast.

You: What? I went through Verizon's website.

(Verizon Agent): Did you go through the Verizon Residential web site?

You: I did. However I was under the impression that Verizon and Comcast are two completely different entities.

(Verizon Agent): They are."

Has anyone else encountered this?  Am I just missing something?

No, it doesn't make any sense! We wanted to try Fios too, but found out that it's not available for our address, even though a coworker of mine has it and she lives a couple of streets from me! In the same zip code, no less! We can get regular Verizon, but have had them before and weren't that happy with them.

So we're stuck with Comcast! Which, we're not happy with either, but can't do much about. No satellite either, since our condo association doesn't allow it. Sometimes I'm tempted to get rid of cable and phone all together and just have internet!

I really haven't watched any Disney animated movies in years.  In fact, I can't remember the last new one I've actually seen. 

That being said, just about every kid I know is deeply in love with Frozen.  They talk about it a lot.  (Actually, not just kids, but a lot of adults too.)  They talk about the song "Let it be" a lot too.

I've finally figured out why.

On Saturday I was in Walmart, and I decided to check out their TV prices.  They had Frozen playing on every TV on their wall.  I was only browsing in that section for all of ten seconds, but it was (I presume) right in the middle of "Let it be".  Having noted the prices of cheaper TVs, I wandered away to acquire something from the next aisle over.

Two days later, that same ten seconds of a song I don't know is still stuck in my head.

Disney is very sneaky.
