My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

Things that go bump in the country

(See previous post below first!). On my weekend jaunt to the "country" I was surrounded by a mass of acreage. I am petrified of snakes, and basically any creepy crawly thing. Bugs and me do NOT mix well. I don't even like ants. So, on my ventures into the areas to take photos, I was well aware of my surroundings and on the look out for any "unusual" (i.e. anything not city like) that might be lurking in the bushes, on the ground, or ready to leap onto me.

Its just common knowledge that me and the "quiet" life are not one. I love the country back home in the states.. but when there is a chance that MR SNAKE can come crawling next to you (mind you they don't make noise here in this country) and the pythons have this ubber-fantastic trait where they can sense the body heat of prey... the LAST thing I am doing is going to "become one with nature" unless there is an Ambulance and some medical teams as well as someone who can be rational while I am having a panic attack... so needless to say, I like the country life here, I am just not a big fan...more of a city girl in that respect.

Upon the "peacefulness" of the country, or what I also like to term as "Gawd damn quiet" I was making faces while Tilda was trying to get a photo of me. At the same time that I am playing around, the horse down in the paddock makes this gawd-awful noise and scares the shit out of me! Classic photo....

I almost cried I was laughing so hard after I realized A HORSE scared the shit out of me.
