We are officially pet owners again! No photos since I'm sensible of a certain someone's fish phobia, although I can't promise her they won't pop up in a future post. Forewarned is forearmed! We got neon tetras, and some other kind of tetras (rosy with black & white accents) and some silver danios and some orange and black barbs and an algae-eater who promptly died overnight (no algae! oops) and today we added a beautiful blue and red betta. I have no idea if I have the names or species right on any of these except the neons and the betta, but it's not like you would know the difference.

Today was nice, as I slept in a bit, fed the kids, and then ditched them with Anders at his office while I went into town and had my hair done, and let me just say that Barky is looking VERY stylish at the moment: short, bouncy and sassy, like a good poodle should. Then I met up with Debbie and Angie and we went to the bookstore where I bought FIVE books *happy dance* and then we went to a restaurant that I sort of knew existed but had never considered eating at before, because it looks like a bus station, but the weather warmed up so we ate outside and it was lovely and the food was great and I haven't seen Debbie in a year (she's just back from a year home in Canada) so we all talked nonstop, kind of like this sentence.

Then we went to see Batman Begins, which was pretty good except for when you couldn't figure out who was fighting who in any of the action sequences, because, whoa, cut much?, and Katie dumped Christian Bale because despite the pecs, he's no Tom Cruise, apparently. But there were so many great actors moonlighting in this film, it was fun to watch them do what they do best. Then, because we bumped into TWO more friends at the movie theater (separately! Malmö is SO SMALL) we went out for coffee with them afterwards, and then I came home and bluepoppy had fallen for my blandishments acquiesced gracefully to my pleading and posted, and then I talked to my sister whom I've been playing phone tag with ALL WEEK and got all caught up, so all in all, 2 thumbs up for my day!
