Can't Make This Stuff Up (I)

Hi! My name is...

Yet another reason to love apartment living: Couldn't help but notice this situation while dropping off recyclables in trash room.

I laughed and walked down the hall to check my mailbox. And then, I raced back to the trash room, hoping no one had scooped up Eugene in the 2.5 minutes I'd thoughtlessly left him alone. No one had.

Now, Eugene is recuperating from his Near Dumpster Experience in the safety of my urban hermitage, as I'm sure God and all the angels had intended.


  1. You and Eugene. It was meant to be.

  2. OMG – too funny. I got the message on my Blackberry and couldn't see the image so I didn’t know what life form Eugene was! Welcome Eugene!

  3. Thank you! His fronds are opening up nicely this morning. Was pretty shocked that one of my dear Virtual Abbey friends said he looks like Ash Wednesday material.

  4. What a great story! Eugene looks perfect! Been looking for some kind of palm for my office...I'll have to start checking out the dumpsters nearby...I wonder if praying to St. Anthony would help? ;o)
