Compton Hospice Celebrate The Good Ol’ 80s!

I like to watch films with Cleo, I let her sit on my shoulder while I watch a DVD sometimes and she seems to stay still for a while. I’m a fan of many Tim Burton films so they’re quite possibly Cleo’s favourite films too.

Today I was told to write a blog post about something I find interesting from the 80s to help promote an 80s night that is being held by Compton Hospice.

So, that is exactly what I am going to do.

Tim Burton, the famous director behind films such as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sweeney Todd first started off his career in the 1980s. A well known Burton film from the 80s is the film ‘Beetlejuice’.

I love the films Tim Burton makes because they’re so different, each of his films have a similar feel but not one of them are the same. I like this because there’s always something that’ll pop up that is completely unexpected and fantastic! Tim Burton’s style of writing and animation has inspired me in the past when I was having to write up my own film ideas and when I was working on animation back in college. I find Tim Burton’s imagination interesting and if I could, I would like to spend a day inside his head just so I could experience his imagination full on. I know meeting Tim and talking to him about his future idea’s would be more practical, but where’s the fun it that?

Speaking of films, another one of my favourite films from the 80s is the Back to the Future films. I am looking forward to having a ride in the legendary DeLorean time machine myself at the Compton Hospice 80s night. If you were ‘made in the 80s’ I suggest you think about checking out Compton Hospice’s website and having a look at what the event has in store. I guarantee, it’ll be totally fresh!

In ‘human’ world..

It’s bed time, in gecko world it’s party time.

Shut up, Cleo. It’s late.

The Lizard Diaries, part 2.

Humans man friend came over the weekend. He  is apparently called ‘Pete’ but the human always says he’s my Daddy, I guess the human is telling the truth, but he doesn’t look like a gecko, but then again, neither does the human. I’d call the human Mommy-human, but I think ‘the human’ makes me sound in charge.

I like Daddy-human, he sits with me and doesn’t shout at me when I poop on the humans bed. The human doesn’t seem to like this.She says it’s naughty and shouts at me. I’d say it makes me sad, but it doesn’t, there’s nothing better than pooping in comfort.

Daddy-human brought this weird object over, the human referred to it as a ‘camera’ which she seemed quite excited about. The camera object kept making this big, bright light that would make me go blind for a while. I didn’t like this, but it was making the human happy and it was nice for the human to call me nice things like ‘cute’ and ‘pretty girl’ makes me a happy gecko.

After about an hour of flashy camera lights, I started to get a bit bored and tried to escape away from the human, luckily, this worked and the human put the camera away and let me chill out on her bed.  The human had left Daddy-human in charge while she got ready to go out and when he wasn’t paying attention, I jumped off the bed and landed on the floor, unfortunately, I landed right next to the human, which got me into trouble.

I got put back into my house and the humans all went out. They thought I would just go and relax under my log but they did not know, it was time for me to party!

Anyway, below are a couple of photo’s the human took,


Fun with Cleo..

Held a little photo shoot for her, she was posing quite a bit actually, I think she liked it. I got some really good photo’s of her. She’s such a pretty little gecko!

Pretty girl!

Hide and seek?

Cleo, I can see you..

The Lizard Diaries, part 1.

The human got me out today. Didn’t even bother to knock.. or wait until I was awake for that matter. Just came barging in as if she bought the place! Not to mention that she was talking to me as if I was a child, or some kind of creature, personally, I find it quite rude!

Anyway, she got me out and started to point me at this giant pink thing with some kind of device that monitored my movement. I didn’t like this, felt like I was in mission impossible or something, so I stayed still for the most part. The human started talking to this move monitoring contraption, I already know she’s crazy but to talk to something that can’t reply, that’s just stupid!

During her mad conversation with the ‘thing’ she started waving me around, as if she was trying to hint to me that she wanted me to do something, so, I did, I jumped and attacked.. Well, by attacked I mean I sat on the pink thing and hoped it wasn’t going to try and eat me. The human didn’t like this, started shouting at me and telling me to “get off!” this confused me, one minute she’s prodding me to move around and when I do she complains, I don’t know, humans, you just can’t understand them!

200 years later she stopped talking to the pink thing and stopped waving me around, this gave me a chance to have a little wonder as I wasn’t clinging on for my life anymore, then, I heard the human say “oh, for f**ks sake Cleo, why start doing interesting stuff as soon as I turn the camera off you little goblin” I don’t know why she called me a goblin, as she knows I’m a gecko, silly human.

Eventually, she let me return to my home so I could get ready to party all night. Being nocturnal has its advantages, this is another thing the human moans about, it’s not my fault I like having some fun!

I ran up the wall and jumped onto my light, I like it up there, it means I can spy on the human when she’s not looking. She does some strange things, I don’t know what this ‘guitar’ thing she plays with is meant to do, but it’s bloody loud and I don’t like it! It scares me..

Anyway, that’s enough for my first entry, I hope the human doesn’t get too offended by my post.

Goodbye and much sticky feet loves,


P.s. Here’s a picture of me ‘chilling in my crib’.
