Esscyuusse me, but I am not feesh please.

Lauri_turtlets_coxcu_300 [ahem]

Yes I do understand how you may feel constrained by the classifications currently available to you, sir or madam.  However, this does not diminish my state of reptilianity.  I am what I am.  You see?  Not all that is wet is fishy!

We are TURTLE.  You will be assimilated.

Thanks to Lauri for the fine fotos!

*squeals and faints from the cute*

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 11:31 AM

They're beyootifull! My fave turtle memories are scuba diving and seeing one swim gently along. They're so peaceful.

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 11:32 AM

Yay! The babies made it!

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Resistance is indeed futile.

sunnymum that's one of my favorite diving memories too. Especialy because the turtles just appeared out of no where. Of course, they were of the gigantic variety, not adorable mouf sized guys like these.

It's a total bummer that such kissable little guys can carry salmonella. I still wanna hold a mini turtle. :)

I like the radical positioning of the COXCU before the zoomed-out pic.

Renae -- mmm, salmon...

Mets -- you've never been there? The capitol building is an 8-story stucco brontosaurus.

Brings back memories of turtle catchin as a kid. Although we never got a motherlode like this one.

Those teeny tailios have just turned themselves into arrows and shot me right through the heart. I ded from teh qte.

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 11:56 AM

Your resistance is SQUEEEEEEEEE-futile.

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:00 PM

So cute! My little guys were that tiny once.....I named them Sam & Ella in light of the salmonella thing....

w00t w00t for Lauri!!!

"this does not diminish my state of reptilianity"
teho, c'mon--they have no state thereof. They be Turdees, always of the amphibious variety.

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:11 PM

I almost forgot.


 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:12 PM

jaypo, I love the word "reptilianity", too.

I am sure Pratchett would prefer "reptilialialialianity" however.

Maybe that only works with "Continuinuinuinum."

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:20 PM

Peg of T!!!!


And, dang, thanks for pointing out the scrollover popup, locutus....I dun missed it!!!

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:22 PM

[commencing audit]

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:22 PM

I believe the correct phrasing of this would be:

Resistance is reptile.

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:27 PM

Glurp...in the COXCU you can see the turdies little egg toof.

I just noticed that!

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:27 PM

d00d(ette) -- it's YOUR photo! You never looked at it full-size??

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:29 PM


I feel a new word cooking up in mah brain!!....TURTLING!!!!


Anyone using it as they do kitling and pupling, well, you all know my rules...a million bux for me, but in this case, since not a lotta folx has turtles for pets, the next time you see one struggling on his back, or trying to cross the street, give'em a hand for me, kthxbye! :P

I mean as in pupling or kitling...if they use either word which I invented(okay, I kinda stole one of them from my hubby) they either pay me a million bux to me or skritch their pet for me! Not a lot of people have turtles for pets...sorry should reiterate better!:P

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 12:34 PM

Turtling through space.
All of a sudden I got that old song heard from Dr. Demento in my head, "Star Trekin across the Universe"

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 01:00 PM

That's it. I'm getting a tiny turtle. I was thinking about getting one when I went back to school and this is the last straw.

 |  Aug 21, 2007 at 01:02 PM
