Random Alert! Alert. Alert. Alert...
So, the hubby and I went to the Virginia Living Museum on Sunday, and well, you must know I took a few random pix. :P

Me with a butterfly finger puppet. Cool, right? :P

Can't remember the name of this little fella, but he can kill you. Just sayin'.

This crocodile's smirk made me think of my dragon story...so ya know, snapped his picture! ;)
 EXTRA bit of random:
Guess who got invited to see a pre-screening of Warm Bodies tomorrow night???? Go on, guess.... ME! Holla!! Totally stoked!! :D *spins around and then runs from zombies* Sorry about all the gloating...but, well, what can I say? It had to be done. :P Muah!
