Monday, October 8th is (unofficially) International Cephalopod Awareness Day. What can you do to celebrate?

- tell a friend some random things you know about cephalopods
- hug your cephalopod plushy
- meditate for 15 minutes and imagine yourself as a benthic octopus, feeling the dark, cold ocean floor with your eight independently-sensory arms... passing food up to your beak which is located under your head
- eat cheddar-filled jalopeneo poppers as a way of supporting that product, in hopes they will eclipse deep-fried calamari as the mid-grade appetizer of choice... poppers, yum!
- sculpt an octopus using the mashed potatoes (you were full from the poppers anyhow)
- making octopus-shaped pancakes for breakfast (this is being done, see thread below)

Unofficial ICAD Website -- but official to you and me!

It's a great idea to continue with Ceph Awareness Day every year. Yes, it needs to be publicized more in advance. Maybe activities associated with it (best poster, best decorated octopus cake, etc. ), and some serious things, too.

Yes! More notice would be great!

BTW, I am collecting as many ICAD entries as I can over here. Anyone have a favorite so far?

Ones that I especially like so far are
