Berkshire Safari

Hooray! My journal entries are back and safe and sound. You know, living in New England for the summer has been quite an experience. I have discovered many new things and spotted many new creatures, and fortunately I've had my digital camera handy.

Sooo, today I thought I'd take you on a safari of sorts, and show you the many creatures I have encountered on my stay.

First up, we have this really spifty moth thing I found on the curtain. Look at its fuzzy antennae! Isn't it neat? It's orange, and METALLIC BLUE!! That totally rocks.

These butterflies are everywhere up here. I don't know what kind they are, but they are very pretty and abundant. We don't have them in Kentucky, I don't think.

Not all creatures of the Berkshires are friendly and bug-like. One must beware of the ferocious parasite alien dachsund, which lays eggs in an innocent victim's chest cavity, only to have them burst open as they hatch, allowing a dachsund to burrow out of one's ribcage to freedom, only to plant eggs in other unsuspecting victims. Fear!!

Next is another cool bug. I named him Lu Bu, after my obsession with Dynasty Warriors and his nifty long antennae.

There is a virus that creeps about the Berkshires. It infects people and makes them do strange, abnormal things. Like making carpenters sew. Weird.

We have mice in the breezeway next to the prop shop. The other day, momma mouse transfered 7 baby mice from one location to another. The babies are so cute! Little balls of fluff. Daaaaaaawwwwwww.

Sometimes the baby mice would wander around fearlessly and not follow their mother, so she'd get fed up and carry them.

Strange creatures lurk in costume storage....very strange.

I hope you enjoyed your adventure! Now, off with me, two shows to go...
