Returned from the rainforest  
Hello there peoples! This is just a quick note to let you know that I'm back. I had the most incredible time in the Daintree. It's definitely one of the most amazing places I've ever visited and a complete world away from my city stresses. Once I've sorted them out I'll post some photos, but to give you a quick idea, I saw two cassowaries (*glee*), six crocodiles, a sea turtle, a reef shark, heaps of tropical fish on the reef, huge tropical butterflies, a bandicoot, loads of freshwater turtles (I swam with them!) and fish, heaps of musk rat kangaroos (adorable little guys that scuttered around at breakfast with us), as well as all sorts of insect life, most of which I wasn't actually scared by. Oh, and my first ever firefly!

I won't be reading my f'list until the weekend (and until I've seen Ep 4.1 of BSG, which looking at the pile of work in front of me won't be any time soon). But drop me a line if there are posts you want me to check out on the weekend.

Hope you're all as happy and relaxed as I am. :)
Current Location: work (sadly)

Heh heh heh. I can draw cassowary/turtle analogies if you push me...

I got pretty mesmerised watching the turles in the stream near our cabin and there were two that kept annoying each other--one would swim up underneath/behind the other and nudge it, or would try and climb on it's back. They weren't mating, just messing around in the water... but not unpilot-like, yes?

I found out that despite the fact that most books will tell you that female cassowaries violently reject the male after mating, my local tour guide said she'd seen family groups together. A promising sign that not all superficially independent/aggressive females stay that way forever? ;p

Hee! You are making me want to write angsty hot pilots fic just so I can call it Like Cassowaries.
