Yesterday Nicholas brought me another bug from the grocery store. A really big one. At first glance it just looks like a really big katydid, but further inspection makes me unsure. I have never seen a katydid that big before, and the wings on this bug are designed like two leaves on either side of its body. Despite these differences I think it is mostly likely just a fully grown katydid. Whatever it is, it will make a great addition to my collection.
Veronica presents her new story;
One day Panda and Ducky decided to take a walk. Suddenly they met dinosaurs! “Roar.” said the T-Rex. “I’m going to eat you”. “Not if I kill you first.” said the Panda and pulled out his sword which he had cleverly hidden inside himself. Then he stabbed the T-Rex. Then he looked him over. He was dead. On hearing that their king was dead the dinosaurs surrendered and Panda and Ducky lived happily ever after. The End.
So, a couple of days ago while we were out walking we saw a really cool butterfly. I mean a really cool butterfly. The kind of butterfly that you see on the front cover of bug books. Suffice to say it was a really great find for a bug collector, such as myself. And Christopher managed to grab it before it flew away (not really sure how… Have you ever tried to catch a butterfly; it’s not easy). Then, so we could transport it with out it flying away, Stephen put it in his handkerchief and put it in his pocket. Unfortunately that was the last time I saw it. Yep, we got home and the butterfly went with the handkerchief to the washer.
So this morning the internet was really bad and the blog kept malfunctioning, so I was unable to write a good blog post. I also had to help make breakfast this morning. And I could have done one yesterday but I was being lazy, so I’ll write a better one tomorrow.
The Armadillo of Legends: Defender of Stuffed Animals
Forced to pursue the villainous Elephant the Armadillo of Legends struck out across the clearing toward the neighboring village. Though still thirty yards away the Armadillo could already detect the effects of the mayhem. The fires roaring atop the buildings, the smell of burning tar and hay, and the shouts for help, mingled with the insane laughter of the evil Elephant. He hurried forward.
As he entered the village he surveyed the wreckage, trying to find the mad Doctor Elephant. This did not take long. Despite the Elephant’s immense weight he sat with astounding grace on a slender, floating, broomstick. The Elephant attacked the villagers alternating with his two weapons, a small wand, and a lazer-crossbow. The Elephant’s unearthly weapons, and his eerie laughter perturbed many of the villagers causing them to run in fear. The Armadillo however, is without fear. Sneaking up behind the Elephant he hurled his boomerang at his his foe’s voluminous head. The boomerang rebounding off the back of his head, the Elephant turned around trumpeting in anger. Unfortunately, the Armadillo had underestimated the strength of his enemy’s skull.
“Who dares to strike ME!!!”, roared the Elephant.
Even after he had discovered his assailant his eyes continued to dart from place to place. This rapid searching, almost nervous motion was contrasted by his seemingly calm and respectable demeanor, giving him the air of an insane mystic.
The Armadillo, however, wasted no time on a such a character study, insightful though it may be. Rushing forward he jumped, twirled in the air, and struck the Elephant full in the face with his right foot. Following this with a shield brought heavy against the same target. The Elephant fell from his broomstick. Recovering himself the Elephant fired two bolts with his gun that the Armadillo easily parried. While he fired he waved his wand in the air, summoning a large wind which blew the Armadillo away from him.
“Impudent FOOL!!!”, the Elephant roared, “You think you can attack ME; The Strength of Sages, The Duke of Doom, The Lord of Lard; and expect get away with it?!!”. The Armadillo snickered involuntarily at this last title, which only served to anger the Elephant more. Trumpeting out a vicious war cry, the Elephant bore down on the Armadillo putting all his weight behind his mighty charge. Placing his shield in front of him the Armadillo braced for impact.
To be continued…
So this morning the light coming in from the window reflected just right off the marble window sill, so as to shine on the crystal ball. In turn the crystal ball cast a bunch of small spots of light on the wall turning the walls into… DISCO WALLS Unfortunately this only lasted a couple minutes before the sun moved, and left us with our normal boring walls.
So the other day while Mom was out, I had to prepare lunch for when she got home. However I wasn’t entirely sure about the recipe so I called Mom to ask her about it. After explaining the recipe, she told me she had a present for me. It was a new bug! Two new bugs! One was a dragonfly (I already have a couple of dragonflies so it’s not quite as exciting), the other was a big, red, hairy ant. At least I think it’s an ant. I’m not really sure. I do know it’s fairly strong however. One day while I was standing near where I store the bugs I heard a weird sound, a kinda scratchy sound. I looked around to see what it was, maybe something in the laundry room or the garage, but no. It was the ant scratching the bag.
Who would win in a fight: Captain Marvel or Superman? I’m just kidding. It would obviously be Captain Marvel. The thing is, Superman is weak to kryptonite and magic. Captain Marvel’s powers come from magic. Not to mention, if two Supermen fight one will lose. Two Captain Marvels could fight forever and not get defeated.
So while I was weeding the other day Robert was… Also weeding. Only instead of a nasty toad, Robert found a lizard nest. One of the ways you can tell that something is a lizards egg is that, for one thing it will be egg shaped, and the other is that a lizard egg is kinda soft and leathery. I didn’t always know what a lizard’s egg felt like. In fact, I found one once before, and I just thought it was a weird rock. So I tried to squish it. Fortunately the lizard inside the egg wasn’t hurt, it just came flying out of the shell looking really confused, then ran away. We saw one of the eggs hatch (without being forcefully ejected) this little black lizard. I wonder if maybe all baby lizards are black, because both the newly hatched lizards I saw were. I don’t know though, it might just be a coincidence.
