Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

(no subject) @ 01:10 pm

I've been subjectless for a couple of days now, well not totally subjectless, but feeling subjectless. Therefore, I'll refrain from putting subjects.

I thought yesterday was hot, today there's heat rising from everything. Yes, heat rises, but steam makes this fact very evident. I'd take an Australian winter any day, even if I had to get swooped by magpies on the way to class, as is the case now. They're in peek magpie swooping season but at least its cooler than the temps we have here.

Plans continue forward so I'm thinking I'll not go to the wedding. I've been invited but it seems more interesting. I'm bringing some cookies which should be well-received by all.

I was amazed at the trustmetrics link I put in my journal appearing throughout several others. I guess people continue to be bored. I know how you feel :). Well, nothing hugely important going on here. The Planetarion beta is kind of stuck; I hope they're implementing changes though they haven't even looked at my accessibility changes I've reported. So, more when it becomes available, stay cool.

You're not the only one who had the trust metrics in your LJ. I saw it in the journals of controlg and several others around the same time.

Magpies live in Australia, they are birds. YOu could probably find them on google or something, a picture of them that is. Swooping seaason happens in late winter or earli spring from about now till about late AUgust. Magpies are very territorial with their nests and young, so if you walk even remotely near where they are they're bound to swoop down really fast and make lal kinds of really scary noises to try to scare you. They will peck your head if you're not careful, so many people wear hats with buttons on the back of them to freak the magpies out and think that you're always looking at them. Some people also carry sticks above their heads ready to beat them off if they swoop.

Away from swooping season I really like magpies, their song is very pretty. But when they swoop, they screech, and its all freaky man.

Judge Judy is always exciting. It makes me laugh when she froths at the mouth and tears apart the lower class.

I definitely enjoy it, right now I'm watching People's court, next comes Judge Joe, then Judge Judy. Very odd.

People's Court is still on? No way! I heard that he's Judge Judy's husband. That would have been quite the household to grow up in. A disfunction just waiting to happen.
