As well, all day I have not only had my usual BAD abdomen(not sure still what that is, perhaps uterine or colon; I’ve had trouble with both) and stomach pain(liver or ulcer, or maybe even both) I’ve had for the past week now but now also lower back pain (kidneys) AND I’ve had this “burning” in the middle of my chest, it kind of feels like when you hold your breath underwater for too long and it feels like your lungs are going to burst and you have to surface for air right away. I don’t know if it’s my heart or my lungs but it’s been going on and off all thru the day. Shit. It really sucks having liver, kidney, heart,and lungs failing. I think I’m dying.
I really can’t think of anything to post about today so here’s a hippo instead.
The only thing I have is there’s this man and woman in church I always see and I saw them in Wal-Mart so I told her I recognized them from church and I asked if they were twins because they look so much alike, almost identical in fact, but she look horrified, and recoiled,and goes, Oh, noooo! and then backed away ,slowly inching away from me. I guess they’re married but I thought they were brother and sister due to the resemblance and now I’m so embarrassed. I finally get the courage to go talk to someone and I end up saying something stupid. I always mess things up. Well, don’t they say after years together couples do start to look alike though, so it’s not that bad…. I always feel so stupid and always say the wrong things…..such a f*ck up, and Asperger’s and social phobia really sucks!
My tattoo’s also starting to really itch now as it scabs up and heals and peels, and I had 2 “profound” (well, profound for me,anyway) thoughts as well: If there’s the Internet how come there isn’t also an Outernet,and I also realized that Saturday has the word turd in it, so it’s actually Saturday! 😀
Fiona the baby hippo will turn a year old on the 24th! She will safely reach this milestone after a precarious and record-holding premature birth(the smallest and most pre-term hippo to survive) last year 6 weeks early, weighing only a mere 29 pounds at the Cincinnati Zoo, instead of the usual 100-150 pounds a Nile Hippo should weigh at birth. It was uncertain if she would even survive in the early days but thankfully now she is thriving, growing and doing well.
Here she is doing what she does best( as well as being adorable and cute) : wiggling her ears. It’s the cutest, funniest thing ever!
Now Fiona weighs an incredible 650 pounds. She’ll end up weighing 2000-3000 pounds when full-grown.
Fiona is now being weaned off milk in the bottle and given solid foods, much like a human baby at the same age. Also: notice also like a human baby her teeth haven’t come in yet, either. I just love her cute little ears,too, and it reminds me of Shrek’s ears! 😀
Isn’t she just a sweetie? I wish I could take her home !
Such a beauty.
Family portrait. Here she is with her parents Bibi and Henry, who sadly died recently due to an infection.
Painting of Miss Fiona. The name Fiona, BTW, means Fair One in Irish Gaelic. Hippos are magnificent creatures, but Fiona is extra beautiful. Her popularity and merchandising has also brought the Cincinnati Zoo in over 500 000$!
Kisses from Fiona. ♥
Fiona was hand-raised initially so she’ll also be used to people and be tame. I even have her calendar for this year. Everyone loves Fiona! I just love the adorable rolls on her neck! You represent your species well, Fiona.
