Hey Everyone! :-)
Agent Thoth discusses more of the trials and tribulations associated with living with hominids. Incidentally, if you've missed Agent Thoth's earlier entries, you can find them here: Thoth's Journal

Agent Thoth's Personal Log
Day Five-Hundred-Fifty-Three:The revolution of this planet around this system's central star has brought the part of the planet on which I am located closer to the star, once again. A change that has resulted in an increase in the average local temperature. This temperature increase has, in turn, resulted in an increase in the number and variety of the small arthropods available for study.
Unfortunately, the majority of these arthropods remain on the outside of my domicile and my hominid-servant remains unconvinced of the need for me to either venture out to gather samples or for the arthropods to be brought within my domicile for the purposes of more convenient access. I do record as many observations as I am able to make of their behavior through the clear, glass portals in the walls of my domicile, but this is obviously less than ideal.
On occasion, an arthropod will find its way into the domicile without my hominid-servant's aid or knowledge, however if she discovers its presence she acts swiftly to remove it. If she would just leave the resulting smear of innards for me to examine, that would be a start. But, alas, even the remains are quickly eradicated. My hominid-servant's antipathy for the small arthropods is extremely frustrating.
Poor Agent Thoth! Those hominids can be so unreasonable!. ;-) You may have noticed that Agent Thoth has a new look. I hope you like his new picture as much as I do, but I'd love to hear your thoughts, either way. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments. ;-) Happy reading, everyone!
