I dunno, she's just talented like that o_O' Apparently she broke it doing lunges in P.E. - this is the same leg that had the double (tibia & fibula) compound fracture in that trampoline accident a few years back, so it is weakened, but your guess is as good as mine with regard to how she actually managed that one. At first they thought it was just dislocated, but after they got her in the ER and tried to put it back in place twice and it wouldn't stay, they did some additional CT scans and found a piece was broken off.

I actually feel worse for my parents atm, who've been sitting in the emergency room for a good 13 hours by now - last I spoke to Mimi, 'fore they took her to the OR, she was too doped up on morphine to care much (she treated me to a lengthy ramble on how she broke her kneecap and something was wrong with her patella, and didn't quite seem to get that they were the same thing); my parents on the other hand are flipping out in all directions and the docs ain't giving them the good stuff. They're keeping her overnight, though, so I guess she won't make it to the meeting tomorrow.

And back to the relevant conversation, does anybody have a fabric tablecloth for a 8-10' rectangular table? I want to make sure the tanks have something nice to rest on top of, somehow I think we'll lose points in the presentation front if we have a scratched up old tabletop, and those plastic covers are horrible....

I am hoping to be there tomorrow... Can I bring any snacks or soda? I don't have a lot in the manner of plants, but I would like to chip in if I can. Let me know!
*Could you please send me your address via APC message? I have temporarily lost my at&t email account.

Take pictures for me! I want to feel like I was there enjoying the event with you all instead of neck deep in physiology books...

It was a great meeting. It was definitely fun meeting everyone and I hope we can do it again soon.

I had some Amazon gift cards I needed to use and in a moment of weakness I broke down and bought a Finnex 4 gallon deluxe kit. I don't know if it will arrive by Friday, but if it does, you're welcome to use it in the show.

I was actually just going to use the light and canister filter for another nano cube, but for the price of the separate components, spending about $10 more gets you the tank.
