Named at last

The fish have all lived for a week and seem to be doing well. It's time to give them names. It was a hard process. After all the votes were considered the names are; drum roll please...

Honey and Fluffy are the two white fish. I realize that Honey was not on the original list but it allows me to walk into the apartment and say "Honey, I'm home."

Godzilla, Jaws, Sushi and Bookself are the other fishes names going from smallest to largest. Sorry William, I could not bring myself to call a fish "My Little Pony"

Why are you in Japan, and the only thing you're telling us about your experience is about your freakin' fish?! Come on...

Robin said...

... PS - I do like the fish names.

Robin has a point. I want to hear crazy/cool things about the Japanesse culture. However, I do realize that the little things, like naming fish, brings your incredible joy.

P.S. I found a new anime which I am fond of
P.P.S. Oh yes, and how goes the search for Vash?

I love the new fish names! They're fantastic! And what a story you'll have to tell people about how they got those names. This was a brilliant idea. Hehehe... honey, I'm home. That's awesome.

BOOKSHELF! WHOOOOOP!

William said...

Poor "My Little Pony". I'm sure your sister would have agreed with me on that name. But at least Godzilla made it.

Dani said...

O Liz, must I mention the extent to which I love fish and all of the names of your various fishes?! I must especially emphasize my agreement with the whole concept of "HONEY". Yes, dear Liz. As you roam through the village of the ninjas {Ninja Village..}{though I know you're not exactly there right now}, I sit at my crazy old computer in my Caton's Island FFATS hoodie and laugh at you and pray for you and I'm so elated that you tell about your fishes!! HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me start off by saying....

MEMORY VERSE!!

Oh Liz, I miss you and your crazy, wonderful, encouraging, hilarious, relevant and sincere personality. I'm quite sure the Japanese people don't realize how blessed they are to have you for an entire year.

Have you taught them to bow their eyes and close their heads yet?

Did you get the letter Kristy and I sent you? Dani and I got yours. Well let me expound on that. Dani left Saturday morning and I got your letter Monday afternoon. It made me incredibly happy and improved my week like you wouldn't believe, and I read it over the phone to Dani. We both loved it. :)

I miss Pogo stories.

"He was an icky sticky, multi-coloured, porcupine polar bear mess!"

You have been quoted beyond belief at camp this past month. You made a huge impact on all of us.

I leave you with these thoughts...

Bust a move. F3. Gumbay! "Close friend." And (this one's important), you obviously should have named one of your fish "Ah!".

Shout to the Lord: AH!

i think your name selections are super terrific. and unlike robin and damien, i only want to hear about fish for at least 3 more months

elizabeth said...

Dani and Jen, i have to say you are also both greatly missed in my world. You are AH! and that's why am 24.

I did get your letter. It arrived the day my plane arrived. It was a great joy!

elizabeth said...

Robin, i am working on that. but let me adjust first. Oh, and i adore pokey

Dame, I haven't seen any Vash yet. None. The people i have asked have never heard of it. But i will not give up yet
