Author's notes

stink bug. not all categories showing on Android App. this was noticed on my leg when I boarded bus352 at Woden Bus Station. So, it had either come with me from Narrabundah, was on my previous bus (bus 540 on route 5), was at Woden Bus Stn, or was on bus 352 and moved onto my leg when I boarded
