Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

My fish is a drunkard!
He's a Rockin' and rollin' fishy.
Little blue is a Japanese fighter fish and yes he lives in a vodka bottle.
Why? What would you have put him in?
Here's a little how to:
Get a couple of giant bottles of booze and drink them. Why a couple? You might not like how the first one looks. You might need to try out a couple, they look so different when empty. Trust me, get a couple of different bottles and drink 'em down!
The next day when the headache is gone wash out your empty bottle of choice. No bleach just a tiny bit of soap. Make sure to rinse all the soap out really really well. you can try to dry it out a bit with a towel but its easiest to drain it well and let it air dry. So go get yourself a bit of the "hair of the dog" and drink while you wait.
In 2 days when you've woken up from your drinking binge, you can glue in your little plant. Yes, you need to glue it in because its almost imposible to get it to stay at the bottom other wise. I took a silicone based glue and squeezed a bunch in. Then with the use of my handy chopsticks I set the fake plant in. Now you don't want to be drunk here, the glue smell trapped in the bottle is enough to make you light headed so inhale deeply.
When you get up this time from having passed out for 2-3 hours after huffing that glue, the glue should be dry. Put in your rocks or beads. now you can fill with treated water or water that has sat out for a couple of days (so the chlorine disipates). I decided to keep the cap but it needed a hole to insert the air tube. Drill a hole but only when you are sober so as not to make an extra hole in your hand. I think the air difuser and all is necessary since how much air can he get through that tiny little top.
Lastly I plopped in Mr. Blue and turned on his air pump, gave him a bit of chow and there he is. He's been living in his bottle about a year now. Happy as can be swimming around in what could be mistaken as vodka.
Disclaimer: Folks, I don't want any nasty emails about the evils of drinking and huffing glue. This was all done tongue in cheek. Kids you shouldn't drink til you pass out and huffing glue is a no-no that will rot your brain and make you forget how to knit.
OK - now go have a good weekend! I'll be sopping wet sitting in the rain at my craft show. If you're in Maine (Yarmouth to be exact), stop on by and bring me a hot cup of coffee, I have a feeling I'll need warming up.
