A new attempt at taking care of a living... thing

You know the temptation of cash register products? The stuff, often candies and tchotchkes (I blame Weird Al for teaching me this word, though I had a hard time finding the correct spelling...) that you only buy because you're bored waiting in line. Well, this is what I bought today:


A cute little miniature greenhouse! 


(Pic mainly taken so that you can laugh at the fabulous view I have... ;)

Yes, I know, it's ridiculous to get so excited over a couple of plants but, well... you remember the fish? Did I ever tell you that I killed 7 (5 red ones, 2 black ones. And two snails. Maybe I was jinxing it by giving them superhero names?) within 4 weeks? It's still a bit of a sore spot. However, I've been annoying my office mate that I want a pet. Or two. Or something. Of course, my lifestyle doesn't exactly allow for an animal that needs daily (or even half-weekly) care. So, a plant (of sorts) it is, I guess. If it survives, maybe then I can move on to something more fragile like, say, fruit flies. I'll cross that bridge when I get there. If ever.

I shall keep you updated, if for no other reason than that this way I'll remember to water my mini greenhouse. ;)
