And a decent roll up on the bird front too: Black-faced cuckoo shrike (almost nabbed a photo), thornbills (zitting everywhere), silvereyes (they're back!), RBFs, y/f h/es, shrikeys, spineys, fantails, wrens, rosellas, ravens, clogs...and HEARD babblers, pardies, sulfur-crested cockatoos, and kookas. Not bad!
A busy week with a science demonstration workshop on Thursday that I co-hosted for LMASA. Thank you Sam for all your hard-work - I now have to buy that metal-mesh waste bin! We managed to snare some video footage; I recorded most of the demos (think I missed one) and struggled a bit on the rather stiff zoom in/out dial. BUT it's there. Now I just have to edit it (...edit???....AAAAH!)
Friday was a fun night out at the Sir Terry Pratchett play Reaper Man performed by Unseen Theatre Company at The Bakehouse Theatre. A night of daffiness, fun, mayhem, silliness, laughter...and a poignant moment that wasn't lost on the appreciative audience (competing against "The Footy" [GO CROWS!] and "The Show"). Unseen Theatre at their best! The cast and crew are fabulous, and the genteel relationship between DEATH and Pamela Munt's "Miss Flitworth" is a delight - their tango is terrific! Love the wizards. Let's face it: Discworld is the only place where DEATH can steal the show - and everyone laughs. Check Unseen's website for session times: http://www.unseen.com.au/
On the writing front: It's editing, editing, EDITING. This week, I'm restricting social media to the early hours before work, locking myself away in the breaks (at work) and hacking at the manuscript. Or else!
I've heard hermits have a more interesting life... :)
