The question this week is:  In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

Being as somebody who doesn't read a lot of books with mythical creatures I am going to have to say the Lochness Monster.   I don't know why, but its the one that came to mine.

This week the question is: Do you have pets?

No.  A few reasons why.  One reason is that during the summer I am gone for long stretches of time (about 4-6 weeks) and then during the course of the school year I am away during the weekends and its usually last minute.  Secondly, I didn't grow up with pets.  True, I had a hamster when I was about 8, but that lasted a few months before we had no hamsters at all.  My dad is allergic primarily to animals that shed.  I also guess because we didn't live on a large lot and both my parents worked, it wasn't a huge priority.   Thirdly, depending on what you get, you can be spending a lot of money just for the maintenance of your pet (vet bills, food, etc.) and being on a small income its hard sometimes to just put food on my own table.  Lastly, I live in an apartment and because there isn't much space, it wouldn't be fair to the pet, even if it were only just something small (they do require space for their living environments that I really don't have).

Hopping through. I'd love to find proof of Nessie. If I got a real photo, I'd be rich!

Finally a Nessie! I love Nessie too. I imagine Nessie to be a she. She seems so sweet and gentle and misunderstood yet fierce when she has to be.

The lochness monster is probably the most unique choice I've see so far!

Definitely a unique choice with Nessie. I love that answer, though! Wouldn't it be cool to find stuff like the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot? All that stuff is fascinating to me :o)

As for the pets, I think you're making the right choice considering your lifestyle. I'm home almost all the time when I'm not at work, so it allows my boyfriend and me to have the list of pets we have. Check out my post? Thanks!
