Fishies

We’ve added two pearscales to the aquarium. Meet Princess Miyako and Princess Osagi. We plucked those names out of the air.  When I later googled Osagi and Miyako, we found that Osagi is the acronym for the UN’s Office of the Special Adviser on Gender Issues and Advancement of Women, and Miyako is a popular name for japanese restaurants. Guess which fish C had picked and which one I did?  These fish were meant for us.

Dog and fish news

The animator of Charles Shultz “Peanuts” gang, Bill Melendez, has passed away [Link to article]. While all I can think about is Snoopy – c’mon, who can resist Snoopy [Here’s Snoopy’s take on being a writer] –  Peanuts contained the sort of truths that only kids and animals will tell you. Long live comics.

Cloned dogs have puppies! It wasn’t too long ago that we thought clones couldn’t reproduce. I hope this lot survive.

Fish news – C went happy shopping for aquarium stuff last night. Maybe I’ll post a new pic.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
