OK, here's another idea; Pedilanthus macrocarpus (Lady's Slipper).. maybe? I've yet to find a pic of one the same size as your "visitor", however, on this site: http://public.fotki.com/panoss/euphorbiaceae-pages/pedilanth... I found a pic of one that looks pretty darned young. (photo attached, credit goes to the above mentioned site).
I'm also glad that Gita shared this, maybe with all of us losing our marbles we'll be able to help you! < =D (or, we could just all have a cuckoo party together!) =)
