    ....instead of playing fantasy football you sit there and fantasize about your dream tank, what you'll put in there....what you'll run on it

    ...or better yet, you'd sit in this thread trying to think of things that would make you a reef addict!!!

    hehehe, the wife and i had this looooong discussion about our lottery house last night.

    A lottery house,for those of you that dont understand, is the house you dream of building, if you were to win the lottery.

    so we were talking last night, and we agreed that something like a 500gal in wall tank, with an "aquarium room" behind it was the way to go.

    nope, i'll tend to the tanks myself...

    yea, kicking the smoking habit was a lot easier than i thought it was gonna be. 2 packs a day or more, for over 10 years, and all it took was 2 little pills a day for about 15 days...

    its actually harder now(day 70)than it was before, cause now i'm seeing the changes in my daily routines. I dont stop outside work and have one, so i get into work a few min earlier, and now i dont even go outside on my breaks, cause its just too hot.. so i end up getting all involved in whatver i'm working on and i get more done...

    i guess really the biggest or hardest part for me is the habit, not the addiction. its mental i tell ya, kicking the physical habit was easy...

    chantix, worth every penny, and i had exactly ZERO side effects(that i'm aware of)

    how about when you spend more than half of your workday sketching out and planning the plumbing so you can put a sump tank in the hall closet when the tank is more than 30 feet down the hall.

    or how about when thoes plans include cutting into the slab of the house for the plumbing.

    When you start thinking about how to jack the entire house up 5 blocks higher so you can fit water tanks and sumps UNDER the house.
