i thought claude was molting. turns out he was dead.
fucking petquarters guy recommended the heat lamp. turns out heat lamps cause dehydration and overheating. "Overheating causes irreversible damage and a slow, painful death."
np: sneaker pimps - spin spin sugar

OMG. You straight up need to go throw your dead hermit crab at the pet store idiot.
i had to bring claude back to the other store so they woudl give me a new living crab
i'm not sure what claude is... but i'm sorry he's dead =/
he was a hermit crab. and thank you
Ohhhhhhh. Poor Claude.
If it's any help I killed a tiny scorpion someone gave me. He had a little plastic box that he lived in and ate tiny tiny crickets.
Well of course everyone knows scorpions live in the desert so they must like heat, right? So I put my scorpion out on the porch during the summer so he could be in his natural element.
Short ending: the poor little guy cooked out there without a place to hide under like a rock. I still feel shitty about what I did even though it was because I didn't know.
Are you going to get another crab?
you had a pet scorpion? neato! i want tarantulas. tarantulas are badasssss
i think the moral of all this is that we should not be put in charge of another creature's life, because we are not qualified. hell, i'm not qualifeid to be in charge of my own life
i did get another. his name is nutter!
We named our scorpion Sparky :)
That's so sad :(
get another one!! And tell the guy at petquarters he's a friggin idiot

i apologize in advance for this, but my first real thought was "man, peta would be after you in a heartbeat."
i'm a horrible person and i'm going to hell. but i agree with jenn. go find the idiot and throw claude at him.
sorry. :( <3

=/. i'm totally getting you a hermit crab for chunkmas.
:( yeah, heat lamps are bad. Hermit crabs should live in a humid, warm location, not a hot dry one. When my Claudius died a few years back, I thought he was molting too, but he wasn't. As a side, Kate/Shellie's hermit crab was named Claudio... we all named our crabs some derivative of "Claud-," but entirely independently of each other. Weeeeird.
Sorry about Claude :(
damn sneaky dead crabs
and yeah, we discussed this at the pomegranite party, remember? or i guess you had too many jello shots
If I remember that from the pomegranate party then I MUST have had too many pome jello shots, cuz I wasn't there. Or you must have had too many, and you were talking to a coat rack and thought it was me. :)
............ are you sure? how i remember is i told you i got hermit crabs and said their names and you told me about the claud- magic. hmmm
Yeah, I'm totally sure. Because one, no one actually ever invited me to the pomegranate party or told me when it actually was, and I was also super depressed that day so I spent my day in my pjs playing video games and drinking really old Black Tower wine straight from the bottle.
I will say a prayer for Claude tonight.
Poor Claude. Let's go smite Petquarters!!!
they still owe me 13 bucks. we can smite them after that

I, as well as the rest of the Guk Server, held a semi-nation-wide moment of silence for le Claude. And your listeners as well. He shall be avenged!
