Gro(w)ing Grobot

iGrobot, growing
I'm quite impressed with how quickly the little grobot started sprouting his green mane - it seems to shoot up over night now, adding a centimeter or two per day. (Maybe that will inspire my hair to keep up? It would increase the options for wedding hairstyles...)
I also added a few cables in its vicinity, thinking that these might make the little bot feel more at home.

i grobot, day 1

i grobot, Tag 1, originally uploaded by ankonym.
The office sees more of me than my apartment (in waking hours), and so I'm trying to make this place friendly and welcoming. While I do have an assortment of calendars, Super Mario mushrooms and android figurines, my desk was missing something live and growing. My first idea (a friendly litte lemur, who might also take on small unloved chores) fell through, but then I got something equally cool for my birthday: an iGrobot.
He's still a bit shy, and just like every new starter here, didn't dare to come to his first day at the office with a crazy hairstyle. But if all goes well, he'll soon have a wild green 'do. I'll keep encouraging him with occasional sips of water. Gro, bot! Gro!
