Book of the Moment – Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer

Ok, imagine if Harry Potter had a gangsta ass butler who was not afraid to smack the sh*t out of a fairy. Ok, got it, that’s Artemis Fowl (and his Butler named…Butler). Now add the fact that he’s a super genius. NOW also add that he’s semi-evil and only interested in money and power. Add in the fact that in this series of books, there ARE fairies and LEPrechauns and centaurs, and Artemis Fowl kicks it with them.

Go read it.


Animal of the day – 8/13/2010 – The Walrus

I am the WALRUS! Koo Koo Kachoo!

The animal of the day is the Walrus. (Did you know: They use their tusks not only in mating displays, but also to haul themselves out of the water! They also use them to keep holes in the ice open! That extremely awesome mustache is actually a set of whiskers called, mustacial vibrissae, is very sensitive and is used to help the walrus hunt for shellfish on the ocean floor.

Also, they play peek-a-boo...Though, not very well.
