Compared with Saturday, Sunday was pretty boring. Slept in, watched some of the 49ers game, watched some of the Raiders game, went to Starbucks and read some from a newly acquired old Spider Robinson book. Went to Petco and got a new male Betta for the half tank which did not seem to have one anymore. Put him in the tank and discovered that one of the females thought she was a male, and fought the newcomer till I put her in a separate tank. I'd heard that female Bettas can change gender when there's no male around, but I'd never actually seen it happen before. Wanted to get a plecostemus (bottom feeder) too, but Petco didn't have anyone working the fish department, and the tropical fish place in Sunnyvale Town Center tried to convince me that a 5-year-old monster in a 50-gallon tank was a typical size, and wouldn't sell me one for a 10-gallon tank. So no joy there.

Mostly spent time with the cats.

Celebrated losing another 5 lbs. with a piece of Black Forest cake. I'm now down 60 lbs from when I started. 55 to go.
