  2. That would be "immense." And, no, it isn't. But I have these little moments where I sit and drink my Mango Madness and ponder life's big questions, like...

    "Just how do fish wink anyway?"

    Thank God, Snapple is around to give me the answer....

  3. hmmmmm....i see.....but what part of having eyelids makes you think they can still wink?

  4. It was my understanding that they don't have proper eyelids... and that the animation of them in NEMO was to make them more accessible and relatable. If they do have eyelids, I don't think they blink them like we do. After all, we blink to keep our eyes WET. What the hell do they need eyelids for? Sleeping, maybe? Where are all the icthyologists when you need them???

  5. Deirdre, they need eyelids so their contacts don't dry out. You of all people should know this, silly.

  6. Or, perhaps, they need them to keep their contacts from floating away from their eyeballs. You wouldn't necessarily know this first hand... but wearing contacts whilst swimming is pretty stupid. :D Take it from me.

  7. See. This RIGHT HERE is what is wrong with the world today. We are all hopped up on sugar, and red dye number 47 and it MAKES US CARE about things like fishes eyelids. It's like a corporate date rape drug for consumers.

  8. What the hell is she talking about? RHONDA, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? She's off her nut.

    Pass me some sugar and some red dye #47. I got a date with corporate consumerism. We're going to a rave.

  10. Isn't your mother missing you, little girl? Shouldn't you go see if you can find her?

    I mean, if you were MY little girl, I'd certainly be wondering where you are by now.

  11. I always thought that fish eyelids were to help keep the dust out of their eyes when they rode bicycles.

    But I could be wrong.

    lol
