Well just a few minutes ago Irene just left after doing my hair. Also I promised that I would make this a special post so I will. Let's start with my mystery bug. Here's a photo of it. Isn't it cute? This is a nymph ( the young of true bugs ) of a leaf footed bug. But I'm not sure on the species. I've seen them every where where I live and at camp ( Which I'm going to tomorrow! ). But thanks to I now know that this is a young leaf footed bug. Before I knew what they were I used to call them "boot bugs" because they look like boots. And that was my nick name for them. Also my mom got the rest of my cameras from the drug store earlier this morning. Also I'm going to take lots of pictures of these when I see them at camp. Also yesterday Kerry called to say good bye to me and to wish me a good time at camp. She also told me that when I come home from camp she would call to set date for me to go to the beach! YAY! So I have that to look forward to too! Any way Good bye for now!

Also I bet your wondering what mimi means. So I'm going to tell you. I like to call my mommy mimi. So that means when ever you see the word mimi in any of my post you know who and what I'm talking about. If any thing else happens that's interesting I'll update this post.

Going To Camp On July 20th! YAAAAAAAAAAY! :)

Well as you can tell by the title of this entry I'm going to camp on the 20th and there's nothing you suckers can do about it! That's pretty much all I have to say except this:

During the wonderful time I'm at camp I won't be able to post things on my blog until I come home from camp. Then I can post my Diary entries on here about my wonderful days at camp. WARNING!: they will be long! So in the mean time I'll say good night.

Note: I'll post my last blog entry on the night before I go to camp. And I'll make it nice and special! :)

Hey I know what I'm about to post isn't that exciting, but it is to me! So today I got mail from Lance's wife! She sent me 2 bottles of ink. ( I had ran out of ink in my other one. ) So for me and any body else that likes ink wells and uses them almost daily with a quill or fountain pen ( I have both. ) this is worth reading. And then you can celebrate my happiness. :)

Lady Bugs!

Today at 8:00am my mom found a Asian Lady bug ( Harmonia Axyridis ) on one of the chairs in the kitchen and she put it in a cup for me to look at for a while. I was cute! One thing you should know is that this beetle is variable in color. the way to tell if it is Harmonia Axyridis is to look at the white "shield" covering it's thorax. If it has a black "W" on it then it's Harmonia Axyridis. These lady bugs are also called the multicolored Asian lady bugs. And for good reason too, for the come in many different patterns and colors and some of them don't eve have spots on there elytra ( wing cases )! Well that 's all that happened today. I let the lady bug go on the balcony.

Went To Dr. Grodberg's Today!

Today was awesome! The weather was awesome and I saw alot of insects! First things first, I talked with the doctor like I never did before! I got alot off my chest that was bothering me for a very long time. And I feel much better. And now for the insects that I saw today!

1 leaf hopper nymph ( it was pink! )
2 microlepidoptera moths! ( See for details on these and other insects and spiders! )
1 black moth ( don't know what kind, flew away before I could get a good look at it. )
1 huge black carpenter bee!
I also stayed out for a bit singing my heart out to some Selena's songs on my walk men. That's when the wonderful huge fat cute CARPENTER BEE!

Lance And Connie Came To Visit Today!

Today Lance and Connie came to visit my mom for her birthday. My mom's real b-day is on the 16th but they couldn't come that day so they came today! We had pizza! It's been along long time since I've had it. I wanted to get some with Kerry the other day but it was closed. ( We came back home too late. ) It was good seeing them again! We haven't seen them in over a year! That's what my mom told me.

Connie gave me a bunch of rings and a silver charm bracelet! I like charm bracelets. I have quite a few. And as for rings I have ( what my mom says! ) too many! :) Also I saw a gray geometrid moth when we went outside to escort them to the taxi that was taking them back home. It was very pretty. I caught it and showed it to my mom in the lobby and then I let it go.

Went Out With Kerry!

I just came back from going out with Kerry! I had a blast! This is what I bought with her:

Mancala ( A game with glass beads! )

Selena Cd's ( Live and Unforgettable the studio cd )

2 bags of Doritos

And I also saw a fire fly! I had a blast today. I went to Toys R us to get the game Mancala and to a record store also on Time Square where I got the cd's. We took the subway to get there. I can't wait to see her again after camp!

P.S Lance and Connie are coming on Saturday for a visit.

Appointment Canceled

Today my mom had to cancel my appointment with Dr. Grodgerg because she wasn't feeling well. Nothing interesting happened. I was really looking forward to talking to him. When I found out I was like "Shit I was looking forward to seeing him!" and "Shit I was going to tell him how I feel " and "SHIT! the freakin devil cursed this day!" So by that you could tell I was mad. If any thing else happens like a miracle I'll tell you. If not....well....I'LL EAT YOU!

Just kidding on that one. ^_~

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! Today nothing much happened. My mom told me that tomorrow I have an appointment with Dr. Grodberg! And then the next day ( Thursday ) I see Kerry! YAY! I can't wait to talk to Dr. Grodberg and then the day after that I get to go out with Kerry and go shopping. I can't wait!

Yesterday nothing happened that was interesting. I found a picture of a really cool looking Horse Fly which was white and had gold colored eyes! I'll post a picture at the end of this post.

I'm not too sure on what species it is but it's really cool looking. I doubt I'll see anything like that, but I've seen some pretty cool looking insects and spiders at camp that makes me love the insect and spider world even more. They come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors. And you'll see what I mean when you look at the photo above!

The Invasion Of The Flies

Today flies invaded our house! Fruit Flies to be exact. What really shocked me was the fact that this morning my mom told me that 2-3 flies were flying around the Venus Fly Trap my mom had bought but they didn't land on the leaves as far as I know! Gee, that was awkward! The invasion of the flies started last night when found one in the bathroom! I thought, "Ok. This normal." which at first I thought it was normal because every now and then we would get fruit flies when my mom buys bananas. But we never got this many! Next thing you know they'll be breeding! ( See picture on the side ) I could hear the flies now about how they're going to take over the house: "Hee hee hee! We just invaded Brittanie's house and we are now making plans to take over the house! In the mean time we'll be making babies! Yeah right! But just to let you know it wasn't a swarm of them. Although you might've guessed ( for thoughs who read my profile and know me ) that I love insects and spiders alot! I find them fascinating to read about ( I have many books on them ) and to watch and photograph in their natural habitats ( which by the way isn't my house! ). Although I don't mind having their company! It may sound like I do in this post but really I love them! It's my mom who hates them! In fact she hates all insects except butterflies and lady bugs. She wouldn't kill them if they made their way into the house, but anything else she'll either kill or catch them in a cup for me to let them go outside. So really in this case I consider my mother to be an insect hater and killer, which by the way in my view is against the law! :)
