Well.. all I can really do it puff out my cheeks.. lol
As for Curly, Looooooooove him! I am partial to the curling fins, as my favorite has it. (The same one mentioned above, got him from a LFS with the curl) So whenever I see one on another I go awwwww... Curly is handsome and even if his coloring isn't as vivid in the pictures, one can see he is something special.
He is flipped around so can't see it as easily.. but it's there.. now Xander has a curl buddy! =)
