Dear Diary

I've been feeling restless lately.  It makes sense, I guess.  There's been a a lot of change in my life in recent days.

And I guess it's all good.  I'm happy.  I'm comfortable.  I've been hanging around with some newer aquaintances, and that seems to be going well as I get to know them better.  This whole transition thing, though, has caused me to take a closer look at myself.  I should make more changes.

I started thinking about how, perhaps, others view me.  There's a school of thought that says we shouldn't care about that, but I for one think it's important to ponder .  What am I projecting?

As I thought this over, I don't think that others see the "real" me. I think I appear as smallish, rather insignificant in the grand scheme of things.  I wanted to change that perception.  To do that, I decided to start with my appearance.

I'm sloughing off the old, and re-emerging in a truer form.  I experimented with that today, and I think it's going well.  My new friends really noticed the "new" me.  I can tell that I'm bigger, more prominent to them now.  

Alpha status.  That's my goal.

Hugs and Kisses,
King Reese


Yes, Reese the snake shed his skin sometime in the last 24 hours.  Meego texted me while I was tutoring.  He remained burrowed under for most of yesterday, but then he popped up today and, migosh, he's actually quite a bit bigger.  I didn't expect it to be noticeable, but it is.

power hungry

Kat is quite interested in all this.  I think maybe the two of them are in competition to see who can be  Biggest Pet.

Oblivious China better watch out.


  1. "Patootie Cat"! Bwahahahahaha!

    Okay, so I thought the snake was kind of pretty when you first showed him. But the thought of him getting bigger makes him a bit creepy to me again. I hope he doesn't get TOO big!

    1. The breeder we bought him from also had a full-sizer at the expo, which was about double the size of Reese when we got him. The Hulking out of the old skin was a bit surprising, though.

  2. Wow. King Reese isn't wasting any time, is he! Is Meego a proud papa watching his pet's first shedding?
    Kat is most likely taking notes on how to shed her skin so that she can continue to eat more. ;)
    China seems to be a lot like Chancie. Oblivious, yet incredibly happy. I should take notes from them!

    1. Meego knows he's not supposed to text or call me when I'm with a student, but I guess the proud papa couldn't contain himself.

  3. This is adorable xD! Lol Patootie Cat xD.

    1. It's pretty funny to watch the cat being all engrossed in that snake.

  4. I wonder if Kat thinks that you got King Reese just for her entertainment. Glad to hear that China is not affected by all these newcomers. But I have to side with Terri on this one, watching that snake get bigger would kinda wig me out a bit. I just hope you guys don't wind up like Jon Voight in Anaconda
