Sorry, it can make your eyes sore... B)
It's the old style 漢字 of 亀 (かめ tortoise, turtle - a holy animal in ancient China for its long life)
I found its stroke order is shown here
Click the kanji at 序Z画 on the page of the site -- but unfortunately, it seems to work right only by Internet Explorer...
龜 is such a weird character, but it does look like a turtle! though it has a weird lump on it's neck... And writing this character nicely is TOUGH (everybody try it!)!
For me it's triple characters!
or quadruple characters 4x 火 !!!

鸞 is another very interesting one to me. It means "fabulous mythical bird" and only has an onyomi reading of ライ. My names dictionary tells me that it can be a surname, in which cased it's pronounced らん. I don't think it's ever really used though.
My favourite is 囁 (e.g. 囁き (ささやき) whisper). It's fun when you think of a little mouth saying something and lots of ears trying to hear what it's saying.
I actually laughed out loud when I read this. That's an oddly cute way of thinking about the kanji. :P

I think the top part looks like weaving and I remember it by thinking of a mat woven out of leaves hanging from a tree.
It is also used in
yotsuba no kuroobaa
Four leaf clover
which is very lucky =)
