Out of the Fuzz

A migraine or a weird 12 hour bug got me so bad yesterday. I was sick as a dog and the headache is still with me now but fading. I wanted to die.

This morning the rain, or to be more preceise the drizzle must have been bothering the wildlife. Firstly the parakeets were going nuts and so loud it was almost unpleasant to listen to, and then came the cockatoos - swooping in and aggressively screaming at the other birds. It was a crazy cacophony that lasted about an hour. Living in an inner city suburb with loads of traffic, pollution and a lot of housing, I continue to be happily astounded by the number of native visitors.

Tonight I'll be watching the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games (yawn) very briefly. A friend is performing and that's the only thing making me feel any interest at all.

The poor Queen flew 24 hours to declare these games open and on her travels around different cities so far she has been far from welcomed. Most reports talk of people lining the street in their hundreds. How embarrassing for her. I'm sure she wasn't expecting such an underwhelming lack of interest in her, but basically this is a sign of the people voting with their non presence - she's a nice old lady and all that but hey we don't need royalty being the head-head of this country!!!!

Sorry about your migrane, I have a nagging headache right now, hopefully it won't escalate to much more. Love the birds on the buildings, it looks so weird to see them there, like they should be in the jungle or something.

i stumbled across your blog via spt. enjoying your photos and entries immensely-makes me homesick for australia. i had to smile when you mentioned the birds, the nice old lady. i like the simplicity of the descriptiveness in this post.

sorry to hear you've been under the weather. those migrains can be terrible. when i have one noise always makes me sick to my stomach and we have to take all the batteries out of the clocks so the ticking won't bother me. so i'm sure the birds didn't help any.

sad to hear you are sick... hopefully you will be back to normal soon.

i love that you have wildlife that we only see here as pets. i would love to see a wild cocatoo or parakeet. how lovely!! we have a pet cockateil, which i know is also an aussie native.

it's just too bad about the sound though, bad timing!
