The Pride Story, part 3 of 3

02/04/2012

You can read part 1 and part 2 here.

Remember, if you want a hard copy of this comic (with a cover! and staples!) I have a few to spare – $3.20 including NZ postage – email me: sarah@poppyshock.com

I had coffee with my mother the morning that I told this story, and she said I remembered it slightly wrong. She didn’t want to kill the weta, it was my dad, who is completely phobic about them. Perhaps because he grew up on the fringes of the Karori reservoir, which is now home to copious giant weta with giant gnashing mandibles. It’s his birthday today. Happy birthday, William!

In other news, I got my ‘Little Treasures’ in the mail on Saturday. I’m on a double-page spread in glorious technicolour. It’s a little overwhelming to see your work, so bright, on glossy printed paper. I had to shut it and then open it again to look at it properly. You might recognise it from a previous post.

    mmmmm….. I once made a rocky seashore poster for my class in standard 3 and I glued a starfish on to it… my teacher loved it and put it up on the wall…until after a couple of weeks, something begun to really stink…..it was the, by now,rotting starfish, how embarassing :-(

    I love it. I would love if one of the kids I subbed would bring in a project like that. Sorry your teacher panicked.

    Cave wetas not giant wetas
    There is an old cave near the karori tunnel in the bush, that I would never enter as it was full of wetas hanging from the ceiling
