So here he is folks. The loveable bundle of fun known as Dexter. And yes, before you ask, it is from the TV show. Let's face it, there was no way we could call him anything else. He's a dead ringer. It's as if Michael C Hall is in my kitchen. I may not be around much for the next few days. I'm typing this from the rapidly closing jaws of Dexter and I can already feel the digestive juices getting to work on my feet. To be fair it's not a totally unpleasant sensation. A bit like having the skin removed from the soles of my feet with a cheese grater. And I said I'd never try that again!! Anyway, I jest!! No, really, I'm joking. I don't want the venus fly trap extraction squad being inundated with calls from concerned myLotters. They're far too busy for hoax calls. The real reason for my impending absence is that it's Mrs. WorDazza's birthday this Sunday and mine on Tuesday. We have our son and daughter arriving tomorrow for a long weekend of eating, drinking and general carousing so I may not be able to attend to myLot in the way I would normally. Although I will do my best. Have a good weekend everyone. Now if I could just get this bloody trap open. I'm beginning to lose all feeling in my feet!!! P.S. Couldn't work out how to orientate the picture correctly. Life's too short. And it's getting very dark in here! P.P.S. pic is now oriented correctly thanks to JJ's advice. It may be the last thing I do while still in possession of both feet!!

You orient the picture correctly by deleting it and replacing it with this one after downloading it

The jaws do have a certain hypnotic quality about them. I can stare at them all day. Thanks! I'm off work until Thursday so my wishes have already come true

You have your own Little Shop of Horrors there . We had a couple of those - they never lasted, but it was great fun feeding them flies ... I didn't think to get a foot massage ! Well a happy early birthday to you and Mrs. WorDazza - enjoy your birthday family time - and be careful of that Dexter!

With the cats and the dog I already had a little shop of horrors. At least Dexter doesn't require walking or letting in/out at all hours.

When I saw your name I had to do a double take. I thought Audrey from The Little Shop Of Horrors had replied!! They're supposed to be difficult to keep alive. You need humid, sunny conditions. We get the humid here just not so much of the sunny

LOL. Happiest of birthday wishes to you and your Missus! Look, that rhymes! No, I hope you have a great day/s/week/month Do your feet with a cheese grater? There actually is a foot grater (sold under different names) but basically, yeah lol! Dexter is the best name, next to Audrey II of course, for such a plant. :-D

Thanks very much. Just about to leave for a nice late lunch. I think I've seen those foot things. I'd probably break them the state my feet are in. An angle grinder would be more suitable!! We did consider Audrey but thought it was maybe a bit too obvious.

Thank you very much. I would recommend buying one. He keeps me entertained. In fact I can spend ages just looking at him. Mrs. WorDazza is getting a bit jealous I think.
