birds

Nurse! The screens!

I have had my new eyes fitted today. I was quite pleased as they give you a little training session on how to put contact lenses in and take them out and such like, and the nice optician lady said I was really good at it! I got the knack of it pretty quickly. The only thing is it is a bit weird messing with your eyes like that. But it is fine.

So it is a strange experience to be wandering around seeing things clearly without your glasses. I kept gazing around vaguely and smiling at people, which clearly worried them as they hurried past, hunching their shoulders against the rain and staring blankly at the pavement with their mean, pinched faces (good writing).

Now I am thinking of having a quiet night in with a wheat beer and maybe some Penn State pretzels and a movie! If anyone would like to join me then he or she were welcome (grammer), especially if he, she, it or they bring some popcorn.

I have been quite sad lately due to some things, especially an amusing misunderstanding over St Valenteen’s Day. Still there is always exciting new computer things to learn, eg Puppet, and Emacs, and intresting photographs to take eg like on my Flickr. And last night a beautiful blackbird was singing outside my window and you cannot help but think that things are all right basically when there are such as blackbirds around.

PUMA!

We were in the pub there earlier on and it was the quiz, and one of the questions was ‘Which type of bird has a variety called “mute”?’

I was just on my way in to the gents but I heard the question as the door was closing and shrieked out ‘SWAN!’ in a high, girlish voice which everyone in the pub must have heard and ruined their quiz fun.

I cannot resist a bird question. It was a fun night though. oop. Tumbled over!

It's still a bird, bird, bird, bird, bird world

It's a bird, bird, bird, bird, bird world

I do not know why birds are so intresting. After all you cannot use them to rest things on, or get them to remind you about shopping, or do odd jobs around the house. Unless those jobs are carefully supervised. Still I like noticing birds, and taking photographs of the birds I notice.

Mevagissey, Cornwall

This is the charming town of Mevagissey in Cornwall, which is not far from where I live, and has a selection of delicious pasties.
