¡Hemos, Julia, hemos!

Yes, thank you both. I'm going to be stuck here forever, though. You two don't care if I don't get any work done. I like that dragon, if you are going to eat a person you have to begin head first otherwise you can't get the legs to go down. And all the bears. And I love the dogs of God. And the crow, I love crows. That's as far as I got tonight.

Julia dijo...

AJP seems to have studied well how to eat people.

Megkoronáz dijo...

Another thing about that dragon is at least he/she removed the wrapping, I could never eat someone wearing, for instance, armour.

Studiolum dijo...

I’m sure you would if compelled by hunger. You would even find it tasty and nourishing.

Julia dijo...

No, Tamás, AJP es un sibarita.

Megkoronáz dijo...

Yes, there are limits. I won't eat metal.

Julia dijo...

Te terminamos haciendo caso con la gatita nueva.
Bueno, casi.
Mirá el nombre final:

Besos!

(perdón, nunca sé poner enlaces aquí)

Anoche ¿por un sueño? vinieron a mi mente cocodrilos, lagartos y lagartijas (¡cosas tan extrañas pueblan mi cabeza!). Y pensé que tenía que prestarte mis lagartijas chilenas para este bestiario. Son sólo fotos, nothing fancy and interesting as your usual posts... But I think your lizards should be accompanied with these little cousins

Julia dijo...

Sumé otra bestia al zoológico.

Julia dijo...

Si se me permite la intromisión, les cuento que agregué otra más a mi colección. Saludos :-)
