fish guts

I know you've all been waiting with "baited" breath for the follow up on the grossest post.

Remember Major Carp?



I finally got brave and gutted him.



Here's how he looks now.  No.  I haven't actually washed the bottle yet.


Surprisingly, I didn't gag once this time.
He was mostly full of vinegar and fruit.
No oil to go rancid.

So I barely smelt it.

But it was so heavy I think he gave me carp-al tunnel.

Since I'm only about a quarter Polish, does that make me a Tadpole?

Those jokes were a little fishy.

In case you were wondering what my house looks like right now:



I'm a shameless slob when I pack.

Speaking of fish, did you know there's actually a fish called the Horneyhead Chub?

No lie.

Meet Mr. Chub:

He was last seen swimming with the River Carpsucker.

  1. From reading this post, I assume you have gotten so used to the fumes coming out of your decorative bottles that you weren't aware of a slight loss of brain cells during this last process?

    Now I can't wait to hear what you have in store for Mr. Fish. Filing him up with water and those "Sea Monkeys" that you can still buy off the internet? I hear they're hours of fun.

  12. Wow, you have been busy! I have had my head buried in my studio and have just surfaced for a day or two before diving into Christmas gift making. LOVE the tile backsplash (even if it isn't tile) and the generator pad. Your neighbors will be calling on you to hold over their horneyhead chubs in your fridge if their power goes out sometime. :)
