Baby steps are still steps.
Kathy, you betta go to bed…
One less t and it would have upped the humor
… but the fish is spelled with two t’s…
You thinking beta is betta?
Betta not go there.
Because we all know that if you’re going to argue with someone you might as well argue with an alpha.
Sounds like she betta get a shrink!
So, is or isn’t Oscar psi-chic?
Well at least she admits that talking to her fish is weird.
The first step is always admitting that you have a problem…
Meh, Katherine’s fishing for an insanity excuse. 😉
I still believe that Oscar is talking back, we just can’t hear it. After all, Monica talked to her ghost abuela, no? Even though it did in fact happen, it drove her to a mental breakdown. Heck, even dealing with Tepoz has had Monica doubting her sanity again.
Actually, i think what “drove [Monica] to a nervous breakdown” was Doubt harassing her.
I get the impression that what happened was that after Monica ran away from Doubt and in front of the bus, she was hauled to a shrink to find out why she “attempted suicide” … and she talked a little too freely about her dead great-granny and demons…
And everyone decided that she needed a little vacation at the local Resort for the Very Confused.
Hey . It’s cheaper than payin’ a shrink .
BTW… could it be that I’ve just discovered Katherine’s spiritual sister?
Cool, the light side of the dark side. Misery may be an enormous buzzkill but I love her anyway. Katherine may have started out pretty gloomy but I’m liking how her personality is slowly becoming a little sunnier as she realizes that not everybody sees her as a freak once they get to know her. I think it was the guy ogling her at the beach the one time we saw her there. A little self confidence seems to make her more attractive than any cosmetic makeover.
When you’re in your comfort zone and all is going according to what you expect, things are fine. When you are out of that zone, or things are not what you expect, then you have to make choices: angst, denial, frustration, anger — or the courage and curiosity to try to figure out what is going on, and what you can do about it!
Next week — Katherine meets up with Phix and Monica and asks to visit the library to do some research on……
We have GOT to get Kath a makeover.
Having an argument with a beta doesn’t mean you’re crazy, it’s ok.
Losing, well you’re probably crazy, and not ok.
I heard some time ago that you’re not crazy if you talk to yourself, not even if you answer yourself. It’s when you go “Huh?”
Kath is OK.
Crazy people arent crazy if they realized that what they are doing, is crazy.
But, if they keep on doing it after they realise…
Yknow your not really arguing with Oscar.. More like yourself.
Like Monica does with her demons 🙂
If Oscar didn’t know her betta, he’d be insulted with her comment. His type can be very touchy. I clean Fish’s tank every 2-3 weeks, and he has to chill out in a small pickle jar while his home is hosed down. And he sulks for a day or so afterward. He seems to find the idea of the jar beneath him. The jar is clean, mind you. I think he knows it used to hold pickles, and that is what bugs him. He gets back to his usual nosy self soon enough, though.
I never argue without a beta blocker. XD
Bettas actually do enjoy “talking back.” I would know; mine are especially full of it. Just *mouthmouthmouthmouthmouthmouthmouthmouth* Usually, it’s about how they think they deserve to get food gut, ’cause they’re pretty.
Kath is an excellent character, I have a background of her beach attire. I have to admit, I still don’t get her eyes.
Hang on the masters every word about the eyes here.
I still fondly remembers the episode when Kath took the fishbowl to the beach.
Nine of the ten voices in my head tell me that Wapsi Square is an awesome strip.
Talking to yourself doesn’t mean you’re crazy arguing with yourself doesn’t either arguing with fish…. well
I remember hearing once in reference to people who yell at their computers “its ok to talk to your computer so long as it doesn’t talk back”
theres nothing wrong with talking to one’s pet; it’s really therapeutic! (look at Monica talking to Deitzel…) and fish jokes just keep getting betta and betta…
If you are going to argue with a fish, you can’t do betta than a Betta – remember – Siamese fighting fish are Bettas 😉
Worse. The Betta is winning. ^_^
