Promised Photographs 

When I went to the Bug Zoo in Feb '05 for reading break, I took a photo of the Katydids just because they were so big. For the reference, here is the photo I took:

This photo can also be found in this post.

This go around, I actually mustered up the gumption to hold the katydid and here is the photographic evidence. These photos have not been doctored. Considering my massive bugophobia, I'm really proud of myself.



See. It totally looks as though the bug is as big as my head. I'm telling you, it really is just about that big. The next shot is one of me and Emma, the tarantula and the first bug I held at the Zoo. She's sweet.

For reference, here is the picture of me holding her for the first time:

She is ever so slightly bigger, but she's approaching her full size now and probably won't get any larger.

At Victoria, Jim continued to train his body. He decided to go for a jog in the neighbourhood instead of trying to locate a gym with reasonable drop-in rates. After 1½ hours, we decided that he had gotten lost in the streets and set out to look for him. He wasn't lost. He had just decided to climb Mt. Douglas since it was in the area. We returned the next day (in a car, of course, it is much more civilised that way...) because he wanted to show us just how tall this mountain is. Here is a picture of us at the peak:

I like this picture for its sheer drama. We took another one with the city as a backdrop, but it's nowhere near as cool.

Happy 2006 everyone!
