Halloween is quickly approaching and there are only eight weeks until I go home for Christmas! Speaking of Halloween, two bodies were found on Coconut Island last week. Apparently, these are not the first bodies to be found out here. They are likely very important people of royal Hawaiian ancestry. I think it's pretty cool, but I might be in the minority... They were found while digging to lay pipe down for fire hydrants. In Hawaii, if any historical artifacts are found while doing construction, all digging stops. We've had a team of archeologists out here analyzing the bones and I'm interested to see what they find.

Life with octos is going as well as can be expected when working with live animals. I've collected many Octopus oliveri (also known as rock tako) and they are mating and feeding readily. I got a particularly large one (with the help of two adventurous friends) last week, and she has proceeded to eat three of my males. I'm not too upset by it as long as she lays some eggs for me. I also found an extremely small one that is likely metamorphosing from its paralarval stage. She is the most adorable little thing you have ever seen. I have to cut tiny pieces from my shrimp to feed to her. So cute!!!

I seem to be losing any semblance of mastery of the English language these days. We'll see how smooshy my brain gets by Christmas...
