No I didn't make the Emerald, purchased it at a Japanese Festival, inside the Gardens of my City,Which is where I'm from, St. Louis. The Festival being at the St. Louis Botanical Gardens.
Left Drax at my place
Mom gave me old lamp (Normal Actually Hot Bulb) so he should stay warm. Since house is normally at 68F so... even if the lamp went out, he'd be ok but I feel a small Heater would be best since my parents ALWAYS keep the Temperature at 65F or 68F meaning he'd always be just a tad cool at night but warm during the night, which is normal in nature.
He perked up VERY fast, seemed to ADORE the plant which,honestly was random, never mentioned it... just saw it in basement, dying in pot (My mother's doing) and placed it in vase... it's a vine, he liked it so I guess it won't hurt him. It's an old vine so it should be helping as best it can haha, hadn't been watered so it's probably filtering like CRAZY right now (For a plant).
ALSO I SEE YOU HAVE A GIANT ACRYLIC EMERALD. NICE. Did you make it yourself? :D I'm, looking for a regular one to make a silicone mold.... I LOVE the huge fake gems! >u< <3 I want them littering my apartment next semester along with fake dabloons. :P I might even do a theme with Firedrake's 2.5 gallon jar! =] After all, he IS named after a dragon and dragons DO protect treasure. :P
Yeah sorry for the rant... I'm not usually this chatty on profile messages.... I haven't slept in days. XD Oh the joys of finals and awful Service Learning.
I've been reading various pages of your thread (because I'm odd and I haven't slept in days....) and I like you. =]
What city do you live in/near? I saw that you wanted to try to transport your boy by metro.
I actually just did that for thanksgiving. I had some video of it but I lost my camera. :/
I also took them on the train. then in the car. Then we finally got home at 12:00 am. :P then they were in their own 1.5 gallon vases (my mom's an ANGEL) with their heaters for the night.
They fared pretty well on the metro (it was heated for the most part) and the train (a it chilly but they were covered with my jacket and scarf... I have a feeling that they were just fine. :P The only time they probably suffered was when I was waiting on the darned bus to get to the metro. :[
It was at least half an hour late!!! >n<
But yeah thought I'd comment. =] on your profile and congratulate you on your new buddy and his pretty gravel! <3
