I guess if you know martial arts, you can sneak up on plants. A hitherto undiscovered use for the art.

Don't try and sneak up on plants. They know what you're up to.

I suspect the Bunny would get poor reviews on his Teacher Evaluation form.

If the Bunny were GPS, Hoho would probably be looking for alternate routes at this point.

Apparently, Hoho is unfamiliar with the definition of "guide."

A friend called him "sparkle bunny." I like "sparkle bunny"! Gonna have to use that.

I'll admit, I was a little worried about this one. I knew from the beginning that the Bunny was going to be part of the story, but I wondered what my son would think of this development. Especially since it wasn't either a lizard or a ninja.

But when he came home after school, the first thing he said was "I wish I had a magic bunny!"

You know, if the one takeaway from these lunch notes is "Always help dad," I'm okay with that.

You can tell the gecko had been practicing that line. Part of his ninja training, actually.

On a totally unrelated note, they landed on the comet! The Philae lander touched down on it today. Granted, this has nothing whatsoever to do with the Lunch Notes, but it was so groundbreaking I felt I couldn't let it go unremarked. Can't wait to see what it finds out!

Yes, King Gos wears pink bunny pajamas. As do all evil dictators.

Ninjas! Now that I've got them in, there's just swords that fly by themselves left to go.

I originally meant for the gecko teacher to be a turtle, so I could call him the Turtle Tutor. Then I realized - ninjas and turtles. As much as I like TMNT, I didn't want to inadvertently link into them. So I changed it to the Gila Master, which I ended up liking better.

Happy Halloween! Not a particularly Halloweeny post, though. Perhaps I should have done yesterday's post today, and claim the tortoises were going trick-or-treating as soccer balls. 

On the other hand, it IS page 13.

You've got to give Hoho points for optimism, though.

I'm pretty sure this would be worse than just taking someone's pie. Unless it's pumpkin pie. Then it might be more of a toss-up.

Coming Soon!

The original Lunch Note Project might be long finished, but now I have another kid in school! And, while he may not have needed to be entertained at lunch, he DID have a sister who got a whole lot of notes, so he wanted some too.

When I asked him what he wanted the story to be about, he said, 'Lizards! And Ninjas! And swords that move by themselves!" So the title wasn't too difficult to come up with.

A few disclaimers:

Despite having ninjas in it, I did little (translate: none) in the way of research into Japanese armor, weapons, etc. Not that I didn't want to, it's just that if I took the time to do so it would have ended up as the College Notes Project. And besides, this is the Land of the Lizards, and not Japan, so I guess they could have any kind of armor, since it's not in the least historical.

The same goes for lizards. Other than looking up geckos, and a Gila Monster, these are not based on actual lizards. Although if there were sword-wielding lizards, I would have looked them up in a heartbeat, especially if it were on YouTube.

To see the original Lunch Notes story, you can begin here.
