Talking I. love. Co Workers!

So, it's 6:03 AM.

Here I am, rolling a new WoW [World of Warcraft] Character, just chilling, doing my thing, phone rings.

I'm like, huhwut? Since my boyfriend's break at work [night shift, obviously] is well past over.

Answer it.

I'M GETTING A FREE 55 GALLON TANK FULL SET UP SANS A STAND.

oh.. mygoodness.

I'm so excited. I couldn't have a 55g Because we didn't have the money to buy one, and people who craigslist theirs in our area always super over price it.

But my boyfriend was talking with a co-worker about fish tanks, and about how much I love them and working on them, and his buddy is like "you know, I have an extra 55 laying around, i downgraded to a 20 because [some reason here that I forget], you guys can have it if you'd like."

So of course, my boyfriend calls me to tell me.

I'm so insainly excited. We don't really have the money to go out and buy substrate, plants, etc for a month or two, but at least I can set it up and just stare at it for hours while planning for it! :]

Just thought i'd share the joy.

Man oh man, my 10g and 20g sure are going to look patheticly tiny in comparison .. <3.

I can finally have Clown Loaches! -glee-


[ Is it sad that I'm so excited I'm near tears..? Rofl. I'm too emotional <3 ]

I only clicked on this because I saw "caffeine". Nah, just kidding.

Great catch! Freebies are a welcomed addition. I'm sure you'll have fun setting it up. Pics

Haha, maybe it is :O .

I'm just so happy I get to have a nice large tank to play with, seeing as my boyfriend shot down my ideas of a bigger tank because of the initial cost. but since we're getting the tank and accessories free.. >:] He said I can go hog wild. .. when we have the money for plants/substrate, anyway. =P.

Lol :].

My boyfriend and I play on Gorefiend now [PvP] Horde, We used to play on Terenas (horde), took a long hiatus from the game, came back shortly before they started that refer-a-friend thing, and used that to level up on a friend's server , Eonar, as alliance.

They stopped playing, so we hopped to Gorefiend, back to the horde 8D.

rofl.

If you're on a budget you need to check out how to make Mineralized Soil, head over to the Substrate forum. Might not take nearly as long as you're thinking to get this baby up and running...
