I think they do it deliberately (a bit like 'Games Cats Play' from The Unadulterated Cat). :lol:

If you ever go into a place full of wild and dangerous animals, make sure you take a camera with you. That way you can be sure to either not see any, or they'll bugger off as soon as you point a camera at them. :lol:

Normally, when I point my camera at an animal it turns around and points its bum at me. Not very photogenic. :lol:

Skyclad made me smile today. Such a great band. :D

Selling my crappy old iPod touch for €50 made me smile, especially as I bought it second hand 2 1/2 years ago for €90.

WRONG!

The koala attack on my nipple was DURING a photo session. IF I hadnt been having my pic taken with aforementioned marsupial I would not have had my nipple pierced! Just wish they had taken ANOTHER pic after the blood started to flow but ohhhhhhhhhhhhh nooooooooooooo....... (must put up the pic of me and the koala micro seconds before it happened... you can see his claw and the worried look on his face just before the talons came out)

Australia is full of fierce wild animals, and even wilder people. ;)

Well... no. Winter is creeping in here and I am the biggest whimp ever. So cold. Brrrrrrrrrr. I am preparing my "Hermit Mode".... not going anywhere after dark unless I can wear my slippers and my cuddly dressing gown and my blankie and my hot water bottle.... luckily my oldest is having a STUPID PARTY for the birthday this week and you HAVE to dress as stupidly as possible or you will be transformed to stupid at the doorstep.... so I should fit right in! :lol:
