    If it's any consolation, I have another "safeguard" to help prevent any impulses for a good while. We're going on a beach vacation out of town around the end of June for a week. So that's yet further rational to not take on something new, healthy or otherwise, since there's already a lot for somebody (we're still looking for a sitter) to look after as it is.

    Just be glad I don't have a savoir complex for fish. That's where the REAL horror show is. Easily the most misunderstood, mistreated and outright abused sector of the pet hobby by 100 country miles. And I say this as someone who's done it just as wrong as everyone else for years.

    I think you mean a "savior" complex? or, parlez-vous francais? (savoir means "to know" in French)

    Thanks spellcheck.

    Or rather, this is why one shouldn't be overly reliant on it due to mishaps such as this.

    My French is pretty rusty, but you threw me for a minute on that "complex".
