RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

For those of us who would prefer some company, a hotel in Belgium has the answer. Anyone who stays at the Hotel Charleroi has the opportunity to rent a goldfish for just around $4 a night. Just think of the possibility - someone to share your stories from the day, watch pay-per-view with and eat overpriced hamburgers from room service. All that, and I bet he won't even snore.
