Watermilfoil, Weevil, Waterloo

Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus) on Echinacea

The oth­er night I watched the news on TV and heard about the bat­tle against Eurasian water­mil­foil that’s been going on in Puslinch Lake. Any­way, between 2006 and 2008, they released thou­sands of mil­foil-eat­ing wee­vils into the lake and appar­ent­ly the wee­vils have been doing their job and the mil­foil in the lake has dra­mat­i­cal­ly decreased. But that’s not real­ly the part that I find fas­ci­nat­ing. What’s so fas­ci­nat­ing is, they men­tioned in the news that the wee­vil costs $1000 EACH! I thought I heard it wrong but Troy con­firmed that that was what they said. Crazy, eh? $1000 for one, lousy, lit­tle wee­vil! Any­one want to start a wee­vil farm with me?

So what’s your plan for the week­end? We’re going to Water­loo tomor­row to see the new Har­ry Pot­ter movie and maybe anoth­er movie at my favourite indie cin­e­ma. Just think­ing about going to Water­loo always makes me feel gid­dy with antic­i­pa­tion. It’s Water­loo! It’s my first Cana­di­an home­town! It’s where we got mar­ried! I guess my love affair with Water­loo is not over yet. Sor­ry, Strat­ford. I like you, but I love Water­loo.

There are so many movies I’d like to see at the indie cin­e­ma in Water­loo. I’d like to see Moon, Away We Go, Good­bye Solo, (500) Days of Sum­mer, um, I guess that’s all for now. But there are always movies I’d like to see there. We used to have a mem­ber­ship card that allowed us to buy a tick­et for only $7! It’s a pret­ty good deal. I miss liv­ing 15 min­utes away from it.

Well, it’s almost tomor­row. I did search for links to post but didn’t real­ly find any­thing worth shar­ing so this will have to do it. Have a good week­end and see you on Mon­day!
