Beware of attack turtle

A box arrived for me in the mail and look what popped out!

Toby and I

He jumped right on me, feisty little guy. He’s a gift from Lisa, E.Webscapes head honcho, blogger extraordinaire, shutterbug, and absolute sweetheart. Thank you Lisa!

Before he got here she suggested that I might name whatever was in the box and perhaps even put it on a shelf. Me, getting emotionally attached to inanimate objects? Psh… (His name is Toby and he’s friends with Quasar and Mr. Sguiggly Sguiggle.)

As much as I and the other turtle plushies approve of Toby, Dorothy was unimpressed as usual. You can’t blame her though, she’s just scared he’ll be taking a share of the food (and obviously not bright enough to realise he’s a toy). Aww, look at her trying to attack me through the glass:

And Zeus adds that if ‘that thing’ moves, he’ll eat it:

Moving on, Vicki was over again recently and this time Ross, her boyfriend, came along as well. It’s nice to meet people you’ve heard so much about, you’re always surprised by how completely different they are from what you expected! (Pleasantly so, of course.)

Vicki and I: (She is not a turtle, but like them she is very cute, eats fish, and has retractable limbs)

And for those who haven’t already seen it, my new social network profile pic:

Turtle Becca

It feels much more ‘me’ than anything that could come straight out of the camera (my mom says I’m weird). Well most words you can think of to describe it pretty much describe me in one way or another, so I love it!

    Awww! The two of you look like you were MADE for each other Toby is a great name… and I apologize if he attacked you right out of the box, I gave him a lecture before he went on his trip – - but you know how turtles listen! Pfft! And the social network profile pic… mmmmmm… I don’t really know what to say. I love it. It makes me giggle. But it’s really kind of warped in a way, ya know? You’re Mom might be onto something……
