Picture

My new picture came out of a corner of a photograph. Since we registered owlfish.com, a few people have given us owl and fish objects. C. already owned a substantial owl collection, but the fishes are all new. The Celtic Owl I was using before was the first of these. My parents gave me a pair for my birthday (the brightly colored fish and the white owl int he background) and Jenene gave us two really small ones which are also magnets - they're in the foreground, but you can't see them too well.

Oddly enough, this is from a picture C. took of me with the digital camera. The bit of me (back in my few days with straight hair) didn't turn out nearly as well as did this lovely little detail.

Owls and fishes
Does 'owl fish' stand for something?

Re: Owls and fishes
Nope. Not alot of meaning to it.

About a year and a half ago, my SO's free "permanent" email was going to go away - they were discontinuing the service. So with about 2 days notice, we had to come up with a domain name that was 1) not already registered and 2) that we would both be willing to live with and use. He's collected/accumulated owls for a bunch of years now, and so liked the idea of the word 'owl' in there somewhere. We brainstormed for a while. Owlfish fit our criteria, but doesn't have a lot of meaning.

Owls are thus obviously associated with C. But fish? Who knows. I get compared to birds more often than fish. My default way to name characters is to call them after plants. My family used to own fish
