I honestly thought I was going to get away with a week with no escape attempts. Find out who tried to make a break this time after the jump. But first, I would just like to wonder what the heck it is about summer that makes the scary tarantulas come out. Seriously I've seen two of them this week, and luckily one time it was on the other side of the river. But I swear it stopped and stared at me like it wanted to kill me. Thank goodness for the water in between us! The other time I almost ran into it and I ran so fast in the other direction, you would've thought my pants were on fire! I know you can catch 'em and sell 'em for good money, but it's really not worth the trouble. I'm not saving for anything, and I usually botch the job and end up getting bitten and knocked unconscious. And that's no fun!
It is really hot. And while in my other home, it has done nothing but rain like it's the end of the world, in Narnia, it's just been clear skies and heat. And Mom's right about the cicadas. Although I get the impression she enjoys their music. Personally, they drive me up the wall. It's the most irritating sound ever.
Apparently Pascal is living in a fog, has really bad eyesight, or never bothered to look into a mirror. I just sort of nodded and smiled like I usually do when he drops these wacky bon mots. I didn't have the heart to tell him that a lot more than his toes are hairy!
Okay, I don't mind when my friends give me new nicknames. Actually, I kind of like it. Because sometimes they're funny and/or clever. But "shorty" is neither. I mean, come on, Cryano we're the same height! I should start calling him schnozz or something...
I don't know whether or not to believe Violet on this one. I mean, how in the world would Gracie Grace furniture end up in the recycling bin in Town Hall? That stuff is crazy expensive. Nobody in their right mind would just throw it away. So I kind of think that Derwin was shining her on. And nobody ever said Violet was the sharpest tool in the shed, if you know what I mean!
Yeah, this time, Chevre tried to make a clean break. I asked her not to go, and she seemed appreciative that I wanted to keep her around, but didn't seem convinced that she would actually change her plans. I guess we'll just have to wait until next week and see what happens!
