Subject size of documents

I've been lurking on the list for awhile -- I like the design of  
couchdb and am taking a look to see if I can use it in any upcoming  

I made a little couchdbhandler for python's logging module and started  
one of my applications up using it -- I let it run for a few minutes  
and was astonished at the size of the database.  With 278 documents  
(all like the example shown below) futon reports the db takes up 1.0 MB.

There's no design document defined for this database.  Is this normal  
or is there something wrong with my setup?  I'm running CouchDB  
0.11.0b832392 under snow leopard.

the documents all look something like this:
