California Ground Squirrel

In an attempt to up my "cute quotient" after posting the Jerusalem cricket photos this morning, I make this offering: California ground squirrel. This one is still sitting up on my back fence as I write this, in fact, looking as cute as ever. A few minutes ago, s/he was making a chirping noise that I would have attributed to a California towhee (a type of large sparrow) if I hadn't seen the squirrel actually making the sound.

And now for something completely different . . . C and I are off to the movies, to see "Iron Man" again. :) (Assuming the theater can get the film to play today).

Now I am picturing a squirrel flying around in a shiny metal suit. AND I LIKE IT.

LOL! It's like Marvel Rodenthero day around here! First, Wolverine Squirrel, and now Iron Squirrel! W00t!

BTW, just got back from "Iron Man," and I liked it better the second time around, except for the big battle at the end, which was too long for my taste. That sort of thing is almost always too long for my taste, though, so it's no biggie. And yes, I did notice the sexist crapola more this time, after your rant. Also, I noticed the extreme HAWTness of RDJ more, since I wasn't always worried that everyone was going to die in half a minute. Since I already knew all the places where people would die, if you know what I mean. NOT THAT ANYONE REALLY DIES (That's for people who haven't seen it yet, and don't want to be spoiled). ;)

Okay. That's it. I totally need a Marvel icon. Soon. Too lazy to go hunting for one just this minute. :D Heh. If I get really adventuresome, I might photoshop some armor onto the squirrel photo, and make my own brand new superhero. Except that would be extremely dorky. (Like that's ever stopped me before).

Eh? Sexist? Hmm. Well. I'm not as sensitive... other than the fact that Ironman was written, what?, in the 50s? 60s? and the name alone of "Pepper" is disgusting? But then this IS comic book material, so they're usually full of testosterone and big tits. lol

Yay for cute!!! You konw, their looks are quite deceptive, though. I was nearly mugged by one for a poptart once! Lol!

Hmmmmm...I wonder if ground squirrels eat potato bugs. ;-)

Ooo! I like the profile pic at the end! The spotty/mottled coloring I hadn't noticed before.
