A more interesting and perhaps symbolic one: I found a baby cockatoo and its dead mother. I ran around to find a vet who would inject it with some fluids so it wouldn't die (as it was very dehydrated), but when I got it back it had become a baby ... baby, but covered with feathers and cockatoo sized. Very, very odd. I have been seeing a LOT of cockatoos here, pretty much every day. It's just as cool as cool can be in my book.
Also, I caught an Autumn dragon egg in the cave today while I was playing Carcasonne with Katy. I am pleased as punch. Also, apparently I created a Carcasonne monster, as she now plays like a vicious demon. Which means it was a GREAT present.
My surgery has been moved again, to January. If I get the job, I'm going to move the surgery - the new date is so close to NY that I would feel guilty taking that much time off of work right at the start of a new gig. I know, a bit counting chickens, but I'm feeling pretty good about this one.
