Feyngirl! Good to see you again. Congrats on finishing editing, and the new aquarium! We had an aquarium when I was a kid and it was a lot of fun. I wouldn't mind having one again in the future.
I spent the majority of yesterday with body aches from my booster shot, but like any vaccine that gives me such symptoms, I hit a certain point in the evening where, very suddenly, I felt better. After a good night's sleep, all aches are gone. Now I just wait for the arm soreness and a couple swollen lymph nodes to go away (the exact same symptoms I got with my second vaccine shot). Given that I heard a fellow patient who was older than me say her arm got so sore that she couldn't lift it for a day and a half, mine is pretty mild and more than tolerable.
The fish are very relaxing to watch, especially the bamboo shrimp which seem permanently confused with life. They constantly walk backwards, fall off things and panic, apparently forgetting that
1) they're in water so falling off things isn't dangerous
2) they can swim
Sorry to hear about the booster pains. I got flu and the booster at the same time, and the combination of mild flu symptoms plus sore arm was not fun.
Brightdreamer, totally agree maintenance can be a pain, especially with goldfish which are pretty messy creatures! Probably not something you want to land in your lap with no warning.
Today I am going to enjoy wearing my big new winter jumper. The clothes moths in our house have become so destructive I just can't wear wool anymore, and I was really excited to find a nice jumper with no wool in it.
