Mother Monster

She is the mother of all monsters.  No one can remember the last time she had a moment to herself, but she doesn’t let that bother her.  A natural multi-tasker, this mom has her tentacles full with keeping her home slime free and making sure her little ones grow up to be the best monsters they can be.

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, who is anything but a monster, but may have felt like she was raising some at times.

March Madness Monster

This monster worked diligently to craft the perfect tournament brackets, but ever since then he's been crossing off failed teams left and right.  Needless to say he is more than a little mad about it.  He's got all of his tentacles crossed that his team will make it to the big dance.  If not, he'll never hear the end of it from the other monsters in his office pool.

Litter Box Monster

For those who are unfortunate enough to be on litter box duty this monster may have a hauntingly familiar face.  This foul smelling monster is no friend to felines or cat ladies alike.  Be sure to keep an eye on this one, because his overwhelming presence gets worse with time.

Mardi Gras Monster

This monster has taken Fat Tuesday a little too literally, but he's not worried, he's been looking forward to this day of indulgence all year.  The greedy gator will push his way to the front of the parade and with a full neck of beads he's ready to party New Orleans style.  Let's just see if he's ready to repent when that alarm clock goes off in the morning.

Valentine's Monster

This hopeless romantic monster is floating on cloud nine when it comes to Valentine's day.  He lives for over-priced roses and greeting cards filled with the sentiment of strangers.  And when love isn't enough to get him through the day he relies on a heavy dose of heart shaped chocolates and complimentary conversational confection.

Birthday Cake Monster

You better blow your candles out quickly, this hot-headed treat can't wait to celebrate.  This crazy confection doesn't mind adding a year to its shelf life, bring on another year and a reason to party.

Failed Resolutions Monster

This poor monster is great at making resolutions and horrible at keeping them.  Let's hope we are all a little better with our new year's goals than he has been.

New Years Monster

Get out your sparklers and party poppers, this monster is bringing in the New Year right!  He is overly excited to get 2012 started and he's going to let everyone know it.  So pour yourself a glass of bubbly and belt out another line of Auld lang Syne because the ball is about to drop and this old acquaintance won't be easy to forget.

Gingerbread Monster

Candyland wasn't quite the same after this ginger treat moved into the neighborhood.  Don't let his sweet exterior fool you, this crispy cookie has a crumby attitude.  Of course you too might be a little bitter if everyone wanted a piece of you.

Sugar Plum Fairy Monster

This is one sugar plum you don't want to have visions of dancing in your head.  What she lacks in beauty she makes up for with grace, at least that's what she'll keep telling herself until next year's try-outs for the Nutcracker.

Mogul Monsters

With snow falling in the mountains, ski season is upon us and its time to start watching out for such icy monsters.  They multiply faster than rabbits and always travel in packs, turning your powder day into a bumpy nightmare.  No amount of holiday cheer is going to melt their frozen hearts.  These passively furious frigid heaps would love to take out your knees and send you flying down the hill in a mess.

Leftovers Monster

The week after Thanksgiving has me thinking about leftovers.   As you scrape together bits of this and scoops of that to pile on your plate you can think of the latest monster to join the Menagerie.  He's definitely not the main dish and he's anything but fresh out of the oven.  This eclectic creature was formed from extra monster parts; a wing here, a claw there...leftovers.

Black Friday Monster

As Thanksgiving comes and goes it's important to take the time to appreciate all that you have.  You can be especially thankful that this monster isn't waiting behind you in line to get into Target at midnight.  This fowl monster has been up all day and night planning its strategy of savings.  The dirty bird loves a good deal and will not hesitate to push down an old lady to get the last TV on sale.

Lou the monster

As we come to the holiday season, here is one more reason to clean your toilets before guests come over.  Unfortunately for Lou his species makes its home among feces.  Monsters of his kind prefer rest stops and dimly lit gas station restrooms, but keep your plunger handy, this king of the porcelain throne might just visit your realm.

The Evil One Percent

This greedy monster has gone sour.  It wants all the money and all the power and will stop at nothing to obtain it.

First Post: The Wall Street Monster

Well here is my first monster for the Menagerie, the Wall Street Monster.  This little creature can't bear to see your portfolio rise.  He will give you hope and then dash your financial dreams, and that's no bull!
