Author Interview, Verizon, Chameleon News

A couple of odds and ends....

Our female chameleon laid FORTY-FIVE eggs!! We're up to ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-EIGHT eggs now! The first batch of 50 eggs should hatch in the fall. Usually, the female gapes her mouth at me and hisses when I put a hand in her cage. After emerging from eight hours of egg laying in a five-gallon bucket of sand, she sat quietly in my palm and let me dust leftover sand off her face. Ahhh....

I was at the Verizon store with Child #3 this morning. I went around to all the display phones with internet and pulled my blog u on the screens. ;)

Guess where I am in the blogosphere?

Over at Solvang Sherrie's blog where she's interviewing me. Please come say hi. Also, Sherrie's giving away a couple of books, which is very nice of her.

Happy Belated Canada Day! Happy Fourth of July in advance!

I always thought that if I ever got a song on the radio (unlikely because I have zero musical talent) I would go to the electronics store and tune all the stations on all the radios to it ala That Thing You Do. I guess i could do the same thing with my blog.

I'll head over there now! I've been hitting a few blogs a day instead of all of them at once, so I missed this.

Teresa said...

Congratulations on all the eggs and your interview. I can't wait to hear how many eggs actually hatch.

Barrie said...

Sarakastic: Maybe we should be pick two days a week. One of the days, we'll both go to our respective cell phone outlet and tune the phones to your blog. On the 2nd days, we'll tune the phone to my blog :)

Barrie said...

Susan: Good luck!

Teresa: I can't wait to see how many of the eggs hatch. Although I am a little nervous!

Barbara Martin said...

Your momma chameleon is doing well in the egg business. I'm certain most of them will hatch.

Charles Gramlich said...

Do these things have natural predators? Otherwise they'll soon overrun the world.

Sarah Laurence said...

I think you'd better move out and leave your home to the chameleons.

Barrie said...

Barbara: From your lips to the chameleon fertility gods' ears. ;)

Charles: Birds and snakes are their main predators, I think. You can add a poodle for our house. ;) Seriously, our dog walks into the bedroom with the chamelons, licking her lips!

Sarah: Ha!!!

Barrie said...

Laughing Wolf: Our plan is to sell the babies to the pet store, then retire. :)

Cassandra said...

What are you going to do with 128 baby chameleons??

Sheesh, you're popular on the Web! At least, people LOVE interviewing you, apparently. :)

Gabriele Goldstone said...

Definitely sounds like a picture, I mean horror, book to me. House of the 128 baby Chameleons. It's sweet, though, how Mama didn't have the energy to hiss.

Happy late 4th of July.
