You’re stuck with me again

Hello everyone! Wow, I disappeared for three months! I hope that’s ok… Anyway, I have a very good reason for why I’ve left, so bear with me here. Anyway, it all started the week I left. I was photographing a rather large and beautiful blue flower.

1

He’s very mean, so I was doing it in secret. Suddenly, though, the lens cap slipped out of my hand, and got covered I dirt from the ground. When I reached down to grab it, I lost my balance, and tripped down the cliff behind me!

2

When I landed, I wasn’t really hurt. But I was stuck down there, and since I had been photographing in secret, no one knew I was there! So there I was, at the bottom of a cliff, and darkness was coming it was all I could do to build a fire and roast hot dogs.

3

When I woke up in the morning, I knew I had to do something. So I reached down, took a rock, said “Here goes nothing” used it to put out the fire, and walked up the stone escalator behind me. Needless to say, when I got back my parents were surprised. They’d thought I’d left for good this time. They had already turned my room into a study, and my art studio in the living room was gone!

I was obviously very mad at my parents. They did seem to feel bad about it, but still. I forced them to remake everything I had done, including my paintings, and have it done within the week. However once they realized how expensive that would be, they realized they couldn’t do it. So they decided to put me in a nursing home.

5

Unfortunately for them, I wouldn’t allow that. Once I was officially enrolled, I hatched a plan for my escape. As it turns out, the patients are allowed into the kitchen. So, using that old guy’s medication from the next room, I made a cake for the guards that would put them to sleep (this was a high security nursing home).

As I’m sure you can imagine, once I was out, there was no stopping me. The first thing I did was break into a butterfly greenhouse and steal all the butterflies, then sell them to myself for 50,000 dollars (can I help it if I like butterflies?)

7

After a few weeks of that, though, I realized something was missing. Sleeping on a sidewalk just wasn’t comfortable. So then I thought of people that care about me. Family had given up searching for me after a few hours, so they clearly didn’t. But then I thought, you guys have said that you care about me, or at least my posts! So if any of you wouldn’t mind if I stay at your house until I turn 18, I’d really appreciate it!

Thanks,

Simon

P.S. It’s good to be back.

P.P.S. Sorry to which one of you I stole this computer from.

P.P.P.S I took ALL of those pictures!

The Last Caterpillar

I have some sad news. Over last weekend, my last polyphemus caterpillar died. I thought my projects were over, but on Thursday, I was taking a walk, And I discovered something.

He’s now in my custody, and doing fine. He eats maple, and is in his 5th instar. I know that Woolly Bears are really basic caterpillars to raise, but beggars can’t be choosers. Plus he’s adorable.

I’ll tell you how he’s doing as much as possible. =)

Yawn; a post about nothing

Hello Everyone! I am so thankful for labor day’s three day weekend!

School has been exhausting, so I wish I could get more sleep. But my cat has kind of stolen my pillow…

asfShe doesn’t seem to realize that that’s where my head is supposed to go.

It’s raining today, and it’s a perfect lazy day, as my family calls it. Considering the circumstances, I don’t really have much planned for today. I guess a post about nothing is perfect for a day like this!

Remember my tiny polyphemus caterpillars? ASDF well they grew up… and died. I have two left now, which is really disapointing. I wanted to be able to raise atleast 5. Plus, if they die that easily, than it’s going to be tough to keep them alive until they’re moths. After all, they are still tiny, they’re at most 10 millimeters. I’ll keep you posted on how they do.

The jellyfish above is one of my favorite paintings, for two reasons: one is that it took me about 8 minutes to make. The second reason, is that the picture I painted it based on is not something I took (obviously), or something I looked for. It was the desktop background our old computer (just a neat story I like to share).

BUILD

OK, if you understand me, you know I’m overly ambisious.

What you see above is a greenhouse I intend to build… unrealistic – YES!! VERY!!! I’m overly ambisious, but I do have the ability to build things… I’ll keep you posted on the project. Just so you know, I am aware that it will never work out the way I planned it above.

P-O-L-Y-P-H-E-M-U-S-!-!-!

Ya, I know. Ich bin nicht really here. I’m probably out somewhere swimming, or kyaking (MISPELLED!!!), mit miene cousin. This ist eine sheduled post. I just couldn’t wait to tell you about my big news. I recently found some Polephemus moth eggs!!! My spicebush swallowtail project didn’t work out so well, and neither did the black swallowtail one. However I now have about 20 kliene polephemus caterpillars, about 5 millemeters long, living in a jar in my room. It is coolest moth, an I LIEBT sie. Das ist why I had to spell it out for you, for dramatic emphasis effect.

Here’s my own tiny creepy-crawlies:

Atlas Moth

My atlas moth Oil pastel creation!

Das ist miene first expirence using oil pastels, and I am suprised how long it took. If you’ve visited my blog, you’ve seen that picture. Ich have used es in many places, partly because the atlas moth is one of my favorite lepidoptera (over a foot long, and still a fast flier) aber also because I personally find it one of my favorite pictures ever. Naturally I was compelled to paint a picture. My family and I went on a short day hiking trip, and we visited a small art store in the area. That is where I bought the pastels. I started the painting the second I got he inspiration for it, so basically the moment we got home. I spent three days working on es, incuding eine visit to a friend of mine. And after all that work, finally I am finished, and I am sehr proud of it! I present it to you all to enjoy =)

Well, I have to leave now, but tomorrow I have another baking post planned…
