Dear diary

Slight teething problem with my experiment. It wasn't unsuccessful, I did work out a way to shrink people but it wasn't what I was originally going for. In fact, I'm not sure what I was going for. It was something to do with science but I can't remember what.
In the meantime, I'd better try and find a way to reverse this before I get eaten by a hedgehog.

Dear diary

I have plans. Sinister plans. I am about to harness a technology that will change the way any fool looks at science. No more will I be mocked in regards to my bizarre research and questionable obsessions. I will be written about and recognised for my genius by the finest documentarians.
Now, where did I put my Etch A Sketch?

Dear diary

Who invented the lemon? It's like, the most sickening fruit in the history of sickening fruits! Just one drop of the juice from a lemon can turn your lips inside out. And I don't even know what that means. Lemon juice is commonly used to add flavour to drinks, fish, pancakes, baked beans and petrol.
I really like lemon juice. It tastes great on cabbages. Weirdly, I'm not too keen on lemony carrots. Go figure.

Dear diary

Remember that game with the round guy who eats a lot and communicates with the dead? I played it again today. I think the last time I played it was when I was 4 years old. The effects aren't as impressive as they appeared back then. Maybe it's because today's games use much more sophisticated technology, but they don't have any delicious cherries in them.

Dear diary

I have so much to do today, I don't think I will have time to write much. Maybe I can make up for it tomorrow by writing an extra long diary entry. Anyway, I'm off to the shops to get a pineapple. I know it's a bit of a random thing to shop for, but normally I need somewhere to start before I begin going around collecting more important stuff.
By the way I watched Jaws again and weirdly enough, it made me feel better about going back into the water. I think that movie has taught me that the worse thing I can find out there is a big, rubber, animatronic fish.


Thanks for the 40,000 views!

Really pleased to have reached this milestone!
Big, BIG, BIG thanks to you all!

Dear diary

Today is the day I visit my neighbours! I'm just gonna wait until the rain dies down. Yes, it's actually raining! I don't know who I'm going to visit, but I hope they have a dry home. I've already got myself soaked through out there. Seriously, I feel like I'm gonna shrink at some point!

Dear diary

Today I received a letter that made me feel very sad. It was from the library. Apparently there are some changes to be made. Now it's going to be even harder for me to rent out science fiction novels because they're including more books for children. Do children even know what books are these days? I'm older than they are and even I'm not entirely sure I know what a book is!

Dear diary

No, I'm not reviewing Jaws by Peter Benchley, I chose an image of me being pursued by a shark because I finally took a dip today. My fear of water is soon to be a thing of the past. I though the image of me not noticing the shark would add an element of humour. I would have looked very dumb if I went for a paddle to try and conquer my aquaphobia and it turned out to be in shark infested waters.
Also I'd be in a shark's belly.

Moby Dick by Herman Melville part 2

Captain Ahab seems to have some real issues. Why is it that he never watches TV? Why does he refuse to travel by bus? Why does he never go to the pictures? He's never gonna catch that whale if he can't relax and observe his surroundings...
I didn't read this book. I think I'm gonna stop doing these.

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

So, this is a story about the hunt for a sperm whale. That's about it. The whale is kinda intimidating because from what is told about him, he's like an unstoppable presence. I'm already afraid of the ocean, never mind the creatures that live in it. This just makes me feel petrified to live on this planet!
Other than that, good book.

The H.G. Wells novels part 2

How do tripods work? Not tripods in general, the tripod machines from War of the Worlds. They walk on 3 legs like some kind of crippled insect. This means that they have to try and use 2 legs to support the middle part of the machine while they move the other 1.
I'm beginning to think this book is a work of fiction...

The H.G. Wells novels

H.G. wells was renowned for being ahead of his time. He wrote about the possibility of time travel, creatures from distant planets and, my favourite one of all, an invisible man! I wish I could turn invisible. I would sneak into restaurants and steal all the free bread. Invisible men where unheard of in the days of Wells. I think he wrote about invisibility very well. It's like he knew what a relevant topic this would become some day. Won't be too long before it will actually be relevant.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling part 2

Turns out Harry Potter is basically Worst Witch meets Lord of the Rings. You have sorcerers, trolls, mythical creatures, virtually everything you'd find in a Tolkien novel. That's not to say there's anything wrong with that, I just feel like I don't want to bother with the rest of the series. Apparently there's an elf in the second book. Again, I've seen enough of that from Tolkien.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling

7 books, 8 films and a theme park in Florida, the time has come for me to find out what the fuss is all about. Everybody loves Harry Potter. My friends love Harry Potter, my family loves Harry Potter, even my dentist seems to really love Harry Potter. Her glasses look extremely similar to Harry's. Anyway I haven't read the books yet so I'll have to get to it right now.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams part 2

Can you imagine what it would be like to have 2 heads and 3 arms? It's hard to put yourself in that position. That's why Zaphod Beeblebrox is my favourite character in the entire series.
Turns out Hitchhiker's Guide originally started as a radio series. I don't listen to the radio much so I can't really add anything to that.

The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

This was a good light read for me and I reckon more science fiction books should be like this one. Even if you don't understand the jargon, it doesn't make it any less funny. In fact, I think it makes it funnier. I don't understand any of this book and it had me laughing all the way through!

Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll part 2:

I didn't mention the carpenter last time so I'll write about him here. The carpenter also eats up the poetry-obsessed oysters. The whole thing is done in rhyme by the way, so maybe that's just part of it. They don't make it out alive anyway so it doesn't really matter.
A bunch of other stuff happens in this book but this is the only part that I like.

Dear diary

I have decided to spend my summer reading. I will write a little review of each book I read right here.

Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll:

There's this fat walrus who eats a bunch of oysters who try to recite poetry at him. That's the first part of my review. I'm gonna write part 2 tomorrow.

Dear diary

I spent most of today looking for a new pair of gloves. Each pair I looked at was no good. Actually, a lot of them were almost fine but each time I looked at the glove that goes on the right hand I was put off. Maybe I have some kind of problems with right hands. Let me check my paws. OK, now I've just realised I can't wear gloves because I have paws and not hands. Another day wasted!

What is Voodoo? I mean really, what does it involve? I ask because I have friends who tell me they are thinking of trying it. I don't know if it's a cult or a religion or just a way to meet people like Yoga. All I know is that it's becoming really popular around here. I just hope it doesn't mean anything weird is going to happen like in Indiana Jones and the temple of doom.

I am fascinated by tomatoes. I don't know why. They aren't the least bit fascinating, but I can't name many fruits that taste the way they do. They aren't fruity at all. They have a very sharp flavour. They have a lot of dumb seeds that you can't seem to chew on no matter how hard you try. And there's that stupid juice that squirts out at 300mph when you pierce the skin with your teeth. You know what? I'm not surprised people assume they're vegetables. They don't deserve to be fruit.

OK, now I've found an interesting story in the paper. Apparently there is a stalker bunny roaming the streets! The article says that this bunny has broken into somebody's home and stolen a book! It also says that this bunny is female, about my height with eyelashes and a purple nose. The police are looking out for this stalker. I hope they find her soon. Who could that be at the door?

Dear diary

Ever wake up feeling like you've been clobbered on the head repeatedly for a certain number of hours? I feel like that right now. It wasn't even from waking up. All of a sudden I have this stupid pain that won't go away! My cranium feels like it's had several vehicles piled on top of it. I have absolutely no idea where it came from apart from that door I walked into earlier 3 times. I hope it goes away because it's really hard to watch TV when your head feels this dumb.

Dear diary

I had a wonderful nap today in a hammock. There's something about hammocks that makes sleeping absolutely magnificent. Every time I've slept in a hammock I've slept incredibly well. I think it's because you don't have an annoying duvet keeping you up all night. I think I might go for another nap right now.

One thing that rabbits can do better than any other animal is hop. OK we're not quite as good as Kangaroos or Wallabies but we can reach a pretty good height. OK so we can't land on our feet the way cats do but nobody likes cats. Also, we don't jump into ponds like frogs. That might not be such a bad thing actually. I like frogs but I don't think I'm going to be leaping into ponds anytime soon.


Check here every Friday for a dose of Beluga Weekly!

This is a head's up for readers of Beluga Weekly. The Beluga Weekly comics are automatically scheduled to appear on this website every Friday. This means that if I am not able to access my laptop, the comic strip will still be updated whenever it's due.
I am going away on holiday soon which means if you've been following Beluga Weekly on Facebook, Twitter or deviantart, there might be an absence of Beluga Weekly next week. This is why I recommend you follow the strip via this website. I intend to update the Belugatoons Facebook and Twitter pages when I return on 20th August, so this isn't going to make a huge difference. I just wanted to let you all know in advance that I won't be doing a lot of social networking for the next couple of weeks. I also made sure I prepared some podcast episodes which will appear on this web site as normal. Thank you for readership and I hope you enjoy all the upcoming comics!

Dear diary

It's time to wiggle your toes! Go on, wiggle your toes! Did you wiggle your toes? I bet it looked really dumb. Anyway, toes are like teeth, except they're softer, longer and collect horrible sweaty bits of fluff. Really nothing like teeth in fact. Teeth aren't as stupid as toes either. I don't know exactly what purpose all of this was meant to serve but it has given me an incentive to not write in my diary immediately after I've eaten vast quantities of sherbet and candy floss.

Today I learned that bow ties are cool and they cut off a lot of air from your lungs. I don't know why well feel the need to wear things like these. Well, I don't, I'm a rabbit but some people think they need to add a little something to their wardrobe in order to be fancy or something. Just wear a potato sack and be done with it!

Just when I was starting to think I might need a haircut, I had a mishap with a toy helicopter. Not mine. I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm into playing with childrens' toys. The good news is, it doesn't look too bad. I can make it work. Why does my hair have to be this exact length? It only leads to situations like this. Which leads to my hair being shorter. Which ensures it won't happen again. The system works!

There's no such thing as good entertainment these days! In fact, it hasn't existed since the 1960s. I wasn't around back then, but I own enough Beatles CDs to know that good music is completely gone. Unless you don't like the Beatles but that's not possible. Everyone agrees that music, TV and film was much better in the old days and there's no other way of looking at it. I haven't come across anything good recently... OK apart from several new bands is saw at a festival, some independent films I borrowed from a friend and about 18 different TV shows I watched on Netflix.
Maybe I need to work on my sense of irony.

I'm writing this from inside of a bush so that nobody sees me. It's difficult to write all of this down without making rustling noises. If I don't write carefully, I might get discovered. I don't know how I can keep this going. It's way more difficult than I imagined. Well, I might have to write the rest of this outside of this dumb bush. I don't know why I'm hiding here anyway.

Still haven't made up my mind about the wall colour. In fact I seem to be in a far worse state than ever. The walls are now about 5 different colours and I haven't had time to eat or rest or do anything that doesn't involve paint. Why don't I just live in a tent?
