Back again in Melbourne

Back again in Melbourne. And not a day too soon. I found that an adult Magpie - similar to the big Ravens we have in Singapore - found its way into the house. From the sooty debris, it looks like it got in through the chimney. It tried to get out - but got stuck in the rooms. It crapped all over the place so badly that it looks like a shitty paint job. Think Resident Evil.

I was so worried that it died in the clothes cupboard- but I eventually found the body underneath the bedside table. GROSS. The whole place stank like a Russian public toilet.

I'll post a photo of the dead bird once my internet connection gets back ok. One of my friends came over and used it up- so I'm capped to 6kb/s. Bloody great.

Now I wish I could get a shotgun and blast at the blasted Magpies that are camped outside the house. Jeremy please help.

Hey Yauming,
Magpie aside, welcome back! How long are you going to be in Melbourne for?

I'll probably be here for a few months or so. Probably until Easter. I'm looking forward to all the Christmas choir concerts already!!!!

Aiyo... what a way to be greeted! Magpie in the house, and a dead one too... ack!
So fun to be in Melbourne.. I miss that place! Was there for a holiday abt 10 yrs back, and I really can't wait to go back there!

It is good to be back here for Christmas isn't it? Christmas choir concerts sure beat the neon lights strewn all over Orchard road that scream c--o-m-m-e-r-c-i-a-l-i-s-m!

The Christmas choir presentations here in Melbourne, at least, are sweet as. One big hint: go for the choir presentations by St Marks Fitzroy - hearing it is like heaven on earth. Sunday 2nd December, 2.30pm.
