Happy Arrival Day, Bananas!

Captain Bananas hits the big zero-one today.

Though we don't know Bananas's actual birth date, it was one year ago today that I brought home both Captain Bananas and Matt Hasselbeck. "Arrival Day" comes from this book, in which these parents hold an annual celebration upon the day the baby they adopted became theirs (because they didn't know the kid's actual birthday).

We had to say goodbye to Matt, but Bananas seems to be thriving. In August he suddenly started turning white, but the guy at the fish store said it's no big deal. You can see his pale patches in the above photo, showing him eating his Arrival Day dinner.

Semi-related note: Captain Bananas's distant cousin Leonard is featured in the Seattle Aquarium's current ad campaign. I like his pirate costume and haunted tank.
