rest in peace, april. and thank you, global warming/mother nature, for the soft, unfrozen dirt in our back yard. our pet cemetery includes: two gerbils (murdered*), one poisson (gold colored, long lived), two hermit crabs (with romantic associations, not necessarily to each other), and one sweetheart of a guinea pig.

this is what happens in my bed after i get up in the morning.
