Sick now, call back later.


Fever, goo, etc. Never a good time for this sort of thing. Apologies for lack of scintillating content, luckily others have me covered right now.

First, amazing pets. Tamaduagirl has this nailed with her pet anteaters. Look at her blog, her pictures on Flickr, and the videos on Youtube. I never imagined you could hear an anteater sniffle. Anyone else think he look like something out of Edward Gorey?

Next, a little nature and science lesson. Don’t wrinkle your nose, this is about banding hawks. Birdchick gives a two part lesson on how it’s done, plus some tips on identifying hawks. Yongi thinks that the pigeon has the worst job, but I’ll ask Brian Pigeon to be sure.

Lastly, uh, I need to make more tea. No room in head for more links.

    Bummer – sorry to hear about your illness – my wife, daughter, and I all just went through a bout with a 48 hour bug – not full on Flu mind you – but still pretty gross…

    And ironically I just pulled my back severly at home on tues. just as the deadline for my now $325 bet is on the line – and I can just about barely walk now without help… D’oh! D’oh!

    As for the anteater content – I thank you – I can never seem to get enough ae in my daily life ;-)

    Hope you feel better real soon!

    I’m finally getting to the end of it, as evidenced by the massive draining of the sinuses over the weekend. Sorry to hear about your back–did you manage to cash in on your goal?

    Anteaters are life fiber: it’s very hard to get enough in your life without supplements.

    Actually shortly after that last post I got a wicked case of strep throat (the likes of which I hadn’t had since friggin’ high school)…

    Umm.. soo… I’m probably outta luck… should have written more fine print methinks…

    However I seem to be able to walk again… and maybe – just maybe I can try so more intensive exercise than walking from the TV to the computer by like next week…

    Guess it’s good I could barely eat the last 5 days… D’oh!

    Whoa, that’s a hell of a one-two punch!

    Hope you’re on the mend. Maybe a stint in a sauna could help you trim off a few pounds by the final weigh in? might do wonders for your back and head too!
