The Venus Fly Trap Transit and the cup of tea
I missed that whole Venus thing, maybe I’ll catch it next time around, although I might be getting a bit rickety by then. I think the trick is not to know about it because telling everyone that it is a once in a life time opportunity to see a black dot drift across the sun is a little unfair. I am not sure that I am worse off as a result of not seeing it, but I was able to recreate the whole even in the house last night anyway.
By shining a small directional bedside light into the top of a mug of tea from the correct height created a disk of light on the ceiling of about seven inches across that looked like the sun I was then able to watch a small black dot move across this disk just like Venus would. On closer inspection it turned out the small black dot was in fact a spider not Venus. Although he is now called Venus so it was sort of Venus.
This too was a unique event only witnessed by myself, well I did point this out to mum but she said IDIOT, that seemed very harsh on a small spider who is called Venus or to give him his full name (I think he is a pedigree spider and they always have long names) Venus Fly Von Trap. So called because of his diet and the fact he has several brothers and sisters who will insist on running up hills singing ‘The hills are alive with the sound of buzzing’
I don’t know how but I got roped into helping with the filing, no not the bars of Benny Neckbenders cell that’s tomorrow night but it is very secret…………AH, sorry Benny mum has said IDIOT again. No it was paper filing all to do with the Napoleon Beelzebub’s Very Strange Curiosity Shop, it appears that even the Devil has to do a tax return although Mr Beelzebub apparently lives in a tax Haven (HAH HAHAHHAH HHAH HAHah hah hhaha hah ah hhah hah ahahha ha h ha)
And we saw the sun this morning for a while but then someone somewhere must of tried to have a jubilee street party because it suddenly poured down and has been wet since. Why is it, it rains on school holidays and is sunny when we all go back to school, this seems rather unfair to me.
OK that’s it I am off to do a bit of work on the Cultural Olympian and make flames for his torch. I have decided to make some small things after this as they are structurally much easier to deal with.
