Sadly, although I am in New Zealand, I won't have time to go to Wellington, and thus the colossal squid will continue in its tragic state of not-being-viewed-by-me. The obvious solution is to return at a later date. When I do, I'll report back on THE LARGEST SQUID IN THE WORLD!!!
Unless an even larger squid species has been discovered by then, which is quite possible, and when it does happen, I fully expect it to be named the "ginormous squid." (People, that word is now in the dictionary, and the prescriptive grammarian in me cringes.)
As a side note, I'm sorry that squid-a-day is not so much happening every day. It probably won't get better when I come back from overseas, either, because of holidays and conferences and thesis-writing and that sort of bother. Depending on how things go, I may officially dial it back to squid-a-week for a while . . .
* Apparently this is an actual recipe.
