I totally brainfarted out this week. I didn't post blogs. I didn't comment on blogs I usually comment on. I'm not sure exactly what happened there. I could throw out a lot of excuses, but none of them are true. :shrug:
When I was fishing yesterday, I startled a great blue heron and then a green heron, but as I got closer to where I wanted to fish I noticed a bird that wasn't really interested in flying away. It just stood there with its neck stretched up, kind of swaying. I thought it was a bittern. I've never actually been in close proximity to a bittern before, so I wasn't sure. Oh, it was a bittern, but not the one I thought it was. It was a Least Bittern. The American Bittern is way bigger. Funny little bugger. It did eventually fly away, but I had to get within six-seven feet of it. They stop and sway as a defense mechanism - trying to look like the reeds and marsh grasses they live in. With their coloration, I could totally see a predator getting fooled.
I really need to stop trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with people. It's like trying to teach a pig to dance. Frustrating and irritating. And people wonder why I fish. LOL
I've been reading a lot of Lillian Jackson Braun's 'The Cat Who' books. They're not overly taxing. They don't distract me from what I'm writing. Easy stuff, people. No clue what I'll do when I've read them all. Start reading through my Andre Norton collection? I got a whole box of her books at a yard sale years ago and never read them. (Same thing with the Cat books - bought a box of them at a yard sale and dragged them here.)
I'm really fed up with The Food Network. I mean, I'm still watching The Food Network Star - there's one episode left - but that's about it. The only reason I'm still watching that is Jason. He's awesome.
Okay, that's about it for me today. The coffee isn't doing its job this morning, and I've got adult stuff to do today. Plus, I'm weeding crutch words out of my manuscript right now and that taxes my bwains. (Bwains! Bwains!) But, the editing is due back to JC on Monday, so this will be over soon. Until the next round. LOL
Later days, dudes.
