Carbon Cages

Punk inside a carbon cage

There must be a real infestation round here of snobberlinks! I found yet another sketch of the creatures done by the human. Again the poor thing seems to be trapped in some sort of cage, it is pink this time – I wonder why?

(Alice says it’s a visual pun based on a science joke but I have to ask myself would snobberlinks really get science? Alice says they have space tech so she would hope so. I think she is just being nice. Now I wonder if she’ll explain the joke to me?)

Natural Nano-Tech

Consuming natural nanotech

My goodness the Snobberlinks are thick! Just look at this sketch one of the humans made! He thinks a bowl of salad is nanotech!

(Alice says it is natural nanotech as it turns sun light into energy and that the silly thing is being worried about it – she is crossing her arms and if she had feet she’d be tapping them as well, she says it’s not very nice to call them thick especially as they actually know that salad was natural nano-tech, I’m going to go and read my book now and I am not talking to Alice as I thick she just insinuated that I was thick which is mean :( )

Almost Boiled Alive!

Ok so last week the one of the humans said that they didn’t consider the bright yellow flower known as a dandilion a weed like some of the other humans and that if we wanted a job we should come and see them. Me and Alice turned up eggar and ready to help and the human set us to picking all the yellow flowers we could find!

Apparently dandilions make a lovely desert wine.

We got the whole crew on bored and picked all day sneezing and becoming steadily more yellow from the pollen. Zack couldn’t seem to tell the difference between the bright yellow flowers and the fluffy white seed balls these marvolous flowers turn into. As a result he went on a short paragluide clinding onto the seed for his dear life!

Anyway we managed to pick enough for the human to have to use both its’ fermenting buckets – it seemed to pour water on the flowers and add some sugar and stuff. But what happened was that the kettle had to be boiled for various stages of cleaning buckets and things and me being covered in the yellow pollen I accidently got thrown into the fermenting bucket with all the flowers and I would have been boiled alive if the humans wiggly woo (I think I’ve mentioned before humans call them babies) hadn’t gotten all excited.

(Alice says I’m exaggerating again and that at no point was I almost boiled alive other wise the wiggly woo would not have been crawling around the kitchen at that point in the wine making – I think she is just rose tinting the past personally.)

The Dandilion Parasol

Dandilion Parasol

After what Alice terms my identifaction feasco last week were I made the innocent and understandable mistake of calling a walnut tree sapling a dandilion, she insisted that we went for a flower survey. The survey had two purposes the first was that Alice had heared that one of the humans had been doing flower surveys for English Nature and thought it would be nice to help and the second was to teach me about floral identification.

So we set off across the great green vastness of the Lawn. Alice had made Buzz and Zack come with us as well – mainly I think so that they could carry the clip boards for recording things. As always Alice had drawn up a search algorhythem so that we could attack the problem in a systamatic way. (She says that she’s still hurt that none of us stuck to them and that the results of the survey will not mean anything as we all just wondered off in random directions).

Anyway amoungst the grass we found sever flowers, some were cream tufty flowers where each petal looked like a little white pod of some sort. These Alice informed me were Clover flowers and could be found in pink and purples too. We looked for the other colours but didn’t really find any. Apparently humans have some funny idea about clover leaves and can sometimes be found spending vast amounts of time looking for one with four leaves instead of three – we haven’t worked out why yet when there is a load of them growing in the flower bed infront of their house :/

We then found these lovely flower with custard yellow middles and lots of thin long white petals. These were again quiet small. These Alice informs me are daisys. Not unlike the Pink Daisy trees we investigated a while back – only small.

Then I found a bright yellow sun on the ground! (Alice says I’m being to discriptive again but that is really what it did look like). This turned out to be a dandilion – it really doesn’t look anything like a walnut tree I have to admit.

Now I wanted to take it back to the house with me but we have been told off before about picking the flowers but then one of the humans told us that dandilions are considered weeds and that we were welcome to as many of them as we wanted.

This cheered us all up as we thought they would make lovely parrasols for the summer! So we picked some there and then.

One of the humans did say that it doesn’t consider the dandilions weeds and if we wanted we should come and see her next week and she’d give us a job to do!

It was all very exciting and informative

Hope to see you all soon
