This Christmas brings a new member to my extended family of dolls, toys, and animals. Theodore is a beautiful Siamese Cat Webkin. Why Webkinz? Well, there’s just something about a world of addictive flash games and using points to buy items for my virtual pets that keeps me coming back. I think what I love most about Webkinz is that I have a very lovely physical toy that I can then carry over into a virtual world.
Theodore is a freelance artist. He loves painting, poetry, and potato chips. Of an evening, he can be found in his room listening to the local public radio and licking irish cream. When he isn’t working on his latest novel or painting, he can be found downloading videos from YouTube to his iPhone or visiting his buddies over at http://icanhascheezburger.com/.
Theodore’s favorite poet is T.S. Eliot. His favorite book is Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. If you ask him what his favorite movie is, he’ll tell you Immortal Beloved but what he really means is Aristocats.
