elliot and i adopted 7 fish and a 55-gallon freshwater aquarium last sunday from an older gentleman and his wife, whose frail jogging-suited body was literally dripping with gold. (but that's beside the point.)
they were moving out of their white house on christmas tree lane and didn't want their aquarium anymore. elliot and i have agreed that they never, ever cleaned it. but we did. last sunday. for 6 hours.
we also named the fish, sort-of. there's liberace (he glows), el diablo/evil genius (elliot and i can't agree), stan and stella (who i think are expecting...), the two little piggies, and andre.
we thought about naming andre "montecore" or "roy horn, jr." instead -- but after about a day's deliberation decided he's definitely the shy and gentle andre.
