from the fishbowl:
Cindy is Banished
THE BOWL, Cindy was the object of desire,
envy, and lust. But outside the bowl, and
according to a resident veterinarian, she
was dead, and apparently 38% thought that
was a good enough reason to banish her.
Cindy didn't say much, but she made us smile,
she made us cry, and she made the levels
of ammonia and carbon-dioxide in the bowl
dangerously high. So Cindy leaves the bowl
and with her takes all of the death out
of Life in the Fishbowl.

With only three fish left, the bowl is
noticeably quieter. The guests are keeping
to themselves more, and Ralph seems to be
taking it the hardest. Using some bottom pebbles
and a discarded fish food bottle top, Ralph
has constructed a smaller "bowl"
inside the bowl, which he calls Little Brother.
Ralph spends most of his time moving imaginary
fish around and saying, "Ha-ha, I see
you pooping. I can hear you talking. I see
you naked." Every five minutes he ejects
a mini-Cindy from Little Brother, and makes
mini-Ralph and mini-Carassius start kissing.
When Carassius swims by, Ralph tries to cover
by saying, "I have gone crazy."
A chicken drowns, Ralph is devastated.
7/23 Challenge: Trading Places
For this weeks challenge, Big Brother
randomly assigned contestants the name of
one bowlmate. The contestant then had to imitate
the fish whose name he was given, and whoever
did the best impression won the challenge
and with it, the promise of dinner and dancing
with Darva Conger, an eel.
Carassius was given "Cindy." Cindy
drew "Carassius." And Ralph was
Carassius imitating Cindy: "I think Carassius
is hot, but I'm too stuck-up to tell anyone
about it. Oh, you're talking? Well, I'm just
going to float away. Now I'll swim upside
down and lose a fin."
Cindy imitating Carassius: (Cindy floats away).
Ralph imitating Ralph (spoken acidly and with
obvious dislike): "I'm being Ralph...I
hate my wife...I killed my best friend...blah,
blah... feel bad for me...oh, I also killed
a minnow, because she looked so innocent...blah,
blah...no one gets along with Ralph, I mean
me, because he's so self-righteous, and he
has a secret crush on Carassius, but he's
too old-fashioned to come out...oops."
7/24 Making Waves
After weeks of waiting for Cindy to say
"yes," Carassius finally realized
she hadn't said "no" yet either.
In fact she hadn't said anything at all. On
Monday night, Carassius made his move and
the next morning was boasting to Ralph that
he and Cindy were now "an item."
Big Brothers infrared cameras keep track
of the fish at night, but were unable to confirm
or deny Carassiuss claims as Cindy produces
no body heat.
7/25 Best Fish Forever
Big Brother records a conversation between
Ralph and Carassius.
Do you ever feel like we're being watched?
Carassius: Yes, we are being watched.
Ralph: No, by people with cameras
Carassius: Yes, that is happening.
Ralph: Oh good, I thought I was
Carassius: I wouldnt rule
anything out, dude.
Ralph: Ill tell you one thing:
theyre not gonna catch me pooping
Carassius: Im gonna go see
what Cindy is up to.
