I have now come up with names for my now two remaining fish, as I can indeed confirm that the third little one is still missing, presumed eaten. After a whole lot of deliberation I have christened my fish Mini-me and Chip. Wanting at first to name them Fish and Chip I soon realised that it was cruel to the little creature named Fish and would most certainly only result in bullying from the much larger Chip. Really, would you want to be named ‘Human’, or someting of a similar nature?? Clearly not!! So not being able to name my fish Fish how then could my mind not wander but to the ruler of the Oceans; the sword fish of sword fish; the majestic Marlin (ie. MEEEEEEEE in a sort of weird sense). In my logic I decided that the nearly-named Fish did indeed look like a mini version of me; certainly after scaling me down about 100 times and removing the spear-like snout you end up with something that looks just like Mini-me!!
So that you can all see this likeness I’ve inserted two images. Clearly
Obviously I did think of naming my fish Mini-me and Nemo but there is just no likeness at all between either Mini-me or Chip and a Clown fish to warrant the name Nemo. Besides, implying that one is the father of the other would just be absurd!!

I used the library for the first time today. Well, properly used it. I got a book out and everything and whilst I was wondering around aimlessly, not really knowing where to look I was wondering to myself whether some people just instinctively know how to use the jungle that is the Library. Is it a gene that I somehow lack?
I was slightly embarassed at being a third year student and still had to ask someone how to use the photocopyer properly :s or how to return an SRC book. I felt stupid and now I wallow in self-pity because I’ve got a cold…
Anyway, I think that one of my fish has been eaten. I can’t seem to find him anywhere and to be realistic there’s not that many places that he could hide. Who ever knew goldfish were carnivores?
