Hello, I've been a bit of a lurker around your forums for a while, and while I don't have a pet cephlaopd, I do like them, and I am pleased to see that the members of this forum really love and take excellent care of the animals in their charge. 8) I particularly like Ink (he's really handsome) and the story about the iguana that put its tail in the tank. :lol: I personally would be heartbroken to have an pet that only lasted a year, but maybe one day I will get one, although I've never kept a saltwater tank, and they are notoriously difficult and expensive if you live as far inland as I do. Maybe one day though. 8)

Anyway, the reason I created an account finally is to share with you a funny story from Halloween, that I thought you might like.

I was at school and I had forgotten that the school's halloween party was starting straight after class at 5 pm! :shock: So I got an idea and over lunch I went town to the closest dollar store and bought scissors and tape and rubber bands and plastic garbage bags and got busy. I thought the result was pretty funny, even though no one got it and I had to explain to every one what I was! But I thought you all might like it too:

:jester: A squid! Well *I* got a kick out it anyway! 8)

Anyway, nice to meet ya all! You can call me Archie for short if you like. 8) (and yes, I know I use too many smilies) :oops: 8)

Hello! Thanks for the compliment on the art and the costume! I think I must have thought of it cause I must have subliminally rememberd the part of exibit at the Smithsonian where they were talking about squid clothing: click here, which is a funny little thing on the wall that is part of their architeuthis exibit. :mrgreen:

Here's another cool thing from it, a squid's BEAK Click here :shock: That was very big but I don't think it was Architeuthis, but one of the smaller of that type. (Is there a Megateuthis? Something like that?)

Anyhoo, I'm very addicted to my digital camera, and take lots of photos with it. :biggrin2:

Maybe I'll upload some drawings I did of cephlapods for you all 8)

edit: oh yeah, I've lurked on and off for a month or two I guess, but I have some other forums I belong to and a BIG computer game forum that I moderate, so I don't get off my beaten path too often, but here I finally am! 8)
