TurtleBoy Returns to Campus!

TurtleBoy has come home for a week or two to be in the festivities wrapped around the Fear the Turtle Sculptures of the auctions begins online today! I the second photo, he's talking to Disco Terp!

All of the turtles have come back to campus and are being cleaned up for the auction viewing. On the 18th of October, they will all be paraded thru campus on flatbed trucks. On the 19th they all 50 will be on display at the Riggs Alumni Center. And, the night of the 19th, the turtles that weren't sold will be auctioned. All the proceeds go to Marylan's student scholarships!

I was so happy to see TurtleBoy again. He had sand all over him. But, he held up really well and he's still so cute!

Bonjour du garçon de tortue!

Sunday. March 26. I'm kind of bored again this morning. Did you know that it's dark in's because there aren't any windows. Tomorrow night will be better because there will be a class in here from 7-9. I like classes. I wonder which one it will be....anyway, I want to tell you about today!.
....I was tapping my foot while I waited for them to show up...
Just for the record...that red on my back wasn't my's way too light. I told Linda that she needed to buy some darker color today...she said I had an attitude (whatever that is) but she did buy me more paint...Ralph Lauren paint...I love it! That's my friend Margaret doin' my back....I asked her to do my toenails, but she wouldn't!
Notice how the gold tones come through in my creases...I can't wait to see these puppies in the sun at O.C. I get all crazy just thinkin' about it...
This the is group's work cart. It holds all their paint and stuff in a nice, manageable heap. I looks messy doesn't it. I'm just glad that I don't have to clean up or anything. I think I have the best job of all...getting hatched into a real live turtleboy! CYA!
