Mom and I went out to Prince Edward during the afternoon, look who we brought home! We named him (or her) Waffle.
During our walk I was horrified to so many common snapping turtle hatchlings being sold. I expected to see tanks filled with red eared sliders being sold for cheap, but not snapping turtles! I seriously doubt anyone who buys one of them has any idea what they’ll grow up to be like.
Seeing the way a lot of stores in Hong Kong keep animals and reptiles started to get me a bit down, but I was glad to find at least one store though that actually took care of their creatures. The shop attendants were pretty nice as well, I think they were practising their English with us.
My dad called me earlier, I’m going over to his place on Tuesday. Found out that my stepmom is pregnant again. It’ll be their fifth child together and my dad’s eighth (my stepmom’s Catholic and so doesn’t use any form of birth control). My dad also told me about how he’s gone through with buying the farm in New Zealand and that he’s planning to raise cows and sheep. *sighs* He’s also planning an orchard and a Chinese garden. Only those who have met my family (you there Vicki?) will know how bitterly hilarious this all is!
[Edit] Just got the first assignment for one of my courses back, another 100%. Yay! [/Edit]
Unprovoked update: Retired three themes and recoded the rest (see the last post).
