Oops!

One evening last week I stopped at friend's after work and didn't get home until after dark.

While I was taking my things out of the car later in the evening I noticed a pigeon stuck in the front grill of the bumper. Euwww. I pulled it's wing, but it was stuck. Thought "I'll take a photo of that and caption it "Oops!" to put on the blog.

Next morning, no bird. Just some wing feathers stuck to a bit of wing on the ground and some other feathers clumped and unclumped. Must've been a hungry critter... probably a local cat, but usually they find a spot to de-feather the bird as they eat it and you'll find all the feathers together. No sign of the site. I don't know what ate it. But it pinched my blogstory.

Bastard.

Today I'm going to lunch at a PG student's place. There will be a group of mostly PG students I think. Should be fun. And interesting food. She is from Malaysia and she visits me to have occasional five to ten minute English lessons. It's great, because we are both learning - sometimes she visits and we go on a hunt for words using the internet and I learn too! One day she was talking about food. She thought that lamb was goat, I suppose that's come from being told that lamb meat is like goat meat.

Poor woman, I'll have her speaking strine in no time - I've already got her practising the long, flat vowels of strine.
