Japan blog goes live on the web
First up, we have a four-legged spider.  !!
Well that's what it looked like walking across the floor.  Like something had gotten a few of its legs (and its head!)

Here's an early photo from Stu's camera of a cockatoo in a tree in our front yard

Mine isn't quite a comparison because I didn't use a flash.  No colour enhancement here.

Stu looked almost professional-like taking photos of the birds :)

And then we went to Nat and Andrew's where everyone started comparing the sizes of their .. lenses .. hehe
Crazy camera people

The first, a completely crazy thing Jake sent me last year while we were in our hotel in Narita trying to decide if we were going to go all the way into Tokyo or not. I sent it to Natto today and freaked her out slightly :)

And the cutest story ever, that I've not had the heart to mark as read in my feed reader..

After being kept up til 1am by work crap, I didn't think I'd be able to wake up in the morning at stoopid-o'clock.  So I smsed Annie and said I wasn't likely to be going.  But at 5:39am I woke up naturally, so decided to get up and go.

It was pretty cool.  Was prettier than when we went last year because the sun came out!  So got some colour.  Took an entire roll of film (200-odd photos).. here's fifteen of them :)

The owners/operators of the Cathay Pacific balloon let their kids walk around inside the balloon.  Looked pretty awesome, I'd love to have gone in too!

For some reason last night I had the urge to build five intersecting tetrahedrons.  I'd built one before, but wanted to do a smaller, coloured one for work.

So did some research, and stole a piece of four different coloured papers and a white and brought them home tonight.

Here's the old one and all the paper cut up.  The ones on the right were the offcuts.
