I just wanna swim, but can't till the Dr gives me the ok. This Mer has gone without water for far too long!
    Congratulations on your merling! (I hated those episiotomy stitches! Like I was sewn up with barbed wire!)

He is not by any means a mervert or collector, and if anyone insinuates that he is, I will be very angry.

    The mermaid in question is an out-of-state professional mermaid, has worked for Aquamermaid at one point, and is a swim instructor. She had a photoshoot with our photographer, (again, for FREE mind you) and he taught her how to do underwater reflection shots. She tried her hand at taking a bunch of them in her pool, and sent him all of her photos though he didn't ask for them. Then when he had another photoshoot with a friend of mine, she publicly accused him of art theft and that HE was copying HER even though he's already been doing this style of photography for years. She's also publicly decrying him as "unprofessional" even though he does all of his photoshoots for free.

    Fortunately, nobody is believing her where she is currently posting this, but she is a professional mermaid and he just hangs out in our community pod. I'm already furious that she's targeting him with her drama, but I will be even more upset if she goes crying to her instagram followers or however she networks to slander him further. This photographer has been nothing but a blessing to our pod, and she's not even from our community.

    The photographer guy has a heart of gold and enjoys every minute of taking pictures. He really goes out of his way to make sure everyone gets the best possible picture and amazingly talented. He didn't deserve the bs she put him through. The mermaid in question though, I had her on a Facebook block for over 2 years and it looks like my intuition was right that she into mermaiding for the wrong reason. People were trying to figure out how she thought she was being copied and her response was posting a picture......she couldn't answer the question. I'm just glad he didn't let her get underneath his skin. I hate to see another person do what I had to do last year which was leave the community for a whole year just to avoid a particular mermaid.

    Today at the beginning of my lunch break one of my co-workers asked me if I knew my car window was broken. I didn't know what she was talking about so I went outside and someone had busted out my passenger side window and they stole my purse along with everything inside of it, money, credit cards, etc. So most of today was spent calling the bank to deactivate cards, giving a statement to the police, talking with an automotive place about getting my window replaced, cleaning out all the glass in my car, temporarily putting clear plastic over the opening, etc. It's been quite a day. I had a lot of swimming gear in my car including two monofins, a homemade fabric tail, and my GoPro but luckily they broke the window, snatched my purse and that was it.

    I park on the side of our building and my desk is right by the wall that I park next to. However, today the machines were running so the thief probably broke my window when the machine was running and none of us inside would have been able to hear the robbery taking place. We don't have windows on that side of the building either. From now on I'll be parking in the front where I can see my car - previously I didn't want to take up customer parking spots but I was told I had better park up front. I am also not going to leave my purse in the car anymore. I don't really like purses but this purse was really cool it was teal and had a western look to it. My Mom gave it to me. Anyways, I'm pretty down about it.

    I feel you. Some people don't have anything better to do than to cause trouble.

    I couldnít agree more. Some of the animals canít be released back into the wild because of various reasons!

    Agreed, but there are a lot of bad places that mistreat animals and don't do anything to help wild or captive animals. (often they just do a vague "we encourage people to care about animals!" claim) When it comes to zoos, there's this tendency for people to see some bad places and say that they're all bad, or see some good ones and say that they're all good. It's important to do your research, learn about which practices are good and which ones are harmful. Of course, there is room for debate on what is good or bad, but there are some subjects that qualified people universally agree on. (for example, breeding white tigers is bad. You will not find any legitimate animal conservation or welfare organization that says it's okay)

    Oh of course! And while there is a lot of bad, I wish people would be more inclined to do some research. And some aquariums that have been painted in a bad light are actually amazing and NOT bad so it's really hard to tell. It's just frustrating for me, as I work with animals more than I work with people and to have someone come up and tell me I'm an animal abuser just based on where I work is just depressing.

    Ole Trade Winds has a classic - people begging for free shipping on large items! For example I am trying to sell some mermaid tails and things I don't use anymore. A lot of people come along asking for free shipping or acting like shipping is too much. To get around this, I fool people by adjusting my prices and saying shipping is included in the price. But regardless, it's mind-numbing to constantly get people asking this. If you want free shipping, go to a website that is offering good deals on that right now. Small time sellers like me literally can't afford to be out shipping and it is rude and uncalled for to harass sellers like that.

    It's a really weird situation. most girls think a friendship between a boy and a girl is possible, but most guys say that it's impossible, because they don't want to talk to you unless its to date. Which has happened to me honestly. I was really close friends with someone, they asked me out, I said no, and BOOM! now they barely talk to me. like, apparently i'm only interesting if you think you have a chance with me? ugh. guys are weird.
