Alien plant from the planet Zorg

My succulent collection has endured the big wet and is now enjoying the warmer weather, with most putting on some major growth.

This particular one is a favourite of mine. I don't know its name* unfortunately, but its pretty colours and odd, warty leaves really stand out. Now it's thrown out a long stem from the centre, which I assume is a flower(?):

I get the giggles every time I see it, because it reminds me of some alien eye-on-a-stalk from a B-grade sci-fi movie.

I swear it's watching me. Creepy...

*Edit: I'm told it's most likely an echeveria.

Put one of those googly eyes that you get from the craft shops to make soft toys on it. I dare you.

Don't dare me, Raina... if I can find where I've stashed my craft supplies, I may just do it. LOL
