Hey guys, My name is Ryan and I live in Alberta, Canada. Ever since I was a young guy (kindergarten) I just loved the octopus. Like I mean fanatically. I bought tons of stuffed octopus toys. Tape recorded shows that had octopus in them. Everything totally octopus, my room is just full of them. Then as I got older I had fads like comic book reading about Dr. Octopus. I spent tons of money on all that stuff, even polly pocket [stuff]. (edited by tonmo) But I'm now in my twenties and I've outgrown most of that kid stuff. I usually play a game called World of Warcraft now. However I still have a soft spot for the octopus, although it's hidden most of the time. I came around watching a cartoon "Tako the Octopus" which eventually lead me here. And I find this fascinating forum all about the octopus, and keeping one as a pet (childhood dream). So that's me heh. Anyone else have this sort of sort of bizzare connection to the octopus? While live octopus were cute in their own way, there was something about cartoon octopus that just was utterly cute. Big heads and arms. And if you own the octopus, mind telling me stories about it! I really enjoy reading octopus stories and how they are.
