Cold-blooded housemates


Our house lizards (cicak) like to hang out behind the dish rack or, more hazardously, underneath the burners of our little counter-top stove. They hold up their end of the housework by eating bugs, which is a highly valued function in our kitchen. They generally keep to themselves, but sometimes when you're cooking dinner they'll make little clicking noises as if to say, "Don't overcook the pasta! You know you hate it when it gets all gummy!"

Poor little guy! Chad thinks one of ours lost its tail in a similar scenario under the stove.

Better a clicking noise than a sizzling noise! Awful cute little guy, and sounds quite helpful!
