a reptile dysfunction

Another really old tortoise has died. Over the weekend, I received a couple of emails from blog readers who wanted to make sure I had heard about the passing of Harriet, a tortoise believed to have been brought back from the Galapagos Islands by Charles Darwin. You might recall that an even older tortoise died in England three months back. I hope we don't have to wait for the inevitable bad news to find out which tortoise is now holds the title of world's oldest.

In other tortoise news, a blog reader who works at Comcast was kind enough to send me a promotional keytag in the shape of one of The Slowskys after reading my blog entry about them. It may not be something I need as much as a t-shirt but the keytag makes a very nice addition to my collection. I have a small tortoise-shaped lamp in my office and a few other tortoise toys and figurines around the house. Not to mentioned my freeze-dried pet tortoise, which is on display with my other memorabilia, or as you might call it "clutter."

One man's clutter is another man's......freeze dried tortoise.

why would you freeze dry your pet turtle? That's a bit morbid.
