Muah, thought these pics taken earlier today (or last night considering the time) looked pretty good.
The first is just a ship docked by Ocean Terminal. The second is it again with Willie sticking his hand out in front of the camera. There are a few similar picture sets of Hong Kong at night on my computer, kept us amused for a good few minutes how we could make everything look like miniatures by sticking a hand out just right. (We are easily amused people.)
Willie has now unofficially quit the band, good for him. As much as he loves music and as talented as he is, we both know he’d be happier not having to put up with the stupidity and selfishness of the other members any longer. We ran into them yesterday in TST, looked like it ruined JR’s day to see me.
And just because I can, here are a few pics I took of Dorothy:
Cute, no? I tried to get a few of Wasabi but he (or she, who knows) is a bit camera shy. I’m thinking of writing a small page about the pros and cons of keeping turtles as pets, seriously, they have a lot more attitude than you think. Not to mention if well taken care of they can be life long companions (although I guess this could be a con too, as certain species of tortoises can very easily outlive a human, so have you’d have to prepare for that.)
I absolutely hate seeing turtles being sold here in HK though… Unlike the US, there are no laws about what size they have to be before being sold and so there are all these hatchlings cramped together, and when they (unsurprisingly) fall ill they’re just thrown into the trash. And I bet the majority of the ones that do get bought are kept in fish bowls or something. (If you’re going to keep a turtle indoors, think large tank, filter, heater, UV light…etc.)
Muah, sorry, I’m just a bit passionate about that. I used to have turtles when I lived with my dad when I was young, and seriously, if you put the effort into taking care of them you’ll realise that, like mammals, they do have personalities and are surprisingly intelligent.
Unprovoked update: Got rid of the polls and added an Around the Web section just to post any interesting links I run into while surfing around. I also made a recolour of the Eminence theme, as I couldn’t decide if it should be pink or blue when I was making it, but I guess with skins I can now have both.
