Occupied by Octopi

One of the disadvantages in being somewhat creatively inclined is that it's easy to get fixated on something. Like finding the perfect pair of black pants with just the right flap pockets and leg width. Or the perfect pillow, throw blanket or piece of artwork depicting an eight-legged sea creature.

Yes, that's right. I'm fixated on that eight-legged wonder, the octopus, right now. Why, you might ask? Well, have you ever noticed that in cartoons, they're always smiling? They also display some of nature's most interesting colors and gelatinous transparency. And, when you go visit them at the zoo, they're always in hiding, so it's pretty rare that you get to see them in action. Much cooler than the alien-esque squid, the octopus always keeps you guessing.
