Happy 4th of July to all you Americans out there! Also, it's Paul Kwinn's birthday today...feel free to send him birthday greetings. More Sea Monkey news (I know you're all glued to your seats in anticipation...esp. YOU, Allison): Another Sea Monkey pair is locked in embrace - Arthur Curry and Emily! Plus there are now some visible baby Sea Monkeys frolicking about. I'm getting a bit worried about the cramped quarters for these new families. But bigger news: I have a Tamagotchi! Or at least a clone. Jeff brought one home for me yesterday...hatched last night. He's still asleep, but looks pretty darned cute. I've named him Hershey. Site of the Day: Mars Pathfinder Information - Images from the Pathfinder will be posted here this evening when they become available (around 9:30 p.m. EDT).
9:19:42 AM Wow, is Hershey ever demanding. He woke up, immediately demanded a ton of food. After devouring hamburgers, chicken legs, soup, icecream, he wanted to be played with. That kept him happy for a little bit, then he got bored and cried until I turned the radio on for him. And he's only been awake for 20 minutes!
