it's amazing how one can forget their own national holidays without tons of advertising and Hallmark as reminders. however, strangely, even though i totally spaced the day, i was still wearing my "give me liberty...or i'll give you death" shirt. strange coincidence, or some ingrained sense?
the nesting swans at the canal of which i posted photos a few days back seem to have had a tragedy. their nest is bare. a day or two ago, it had only one egg in it (there were three) and the swans were off doing something else. no cygnets apparent. and today, the nest seems like they or someone has pretty much closed it over. so i'm thinking the eggs didn't hatch. either that, or someone seriously disturbed the nest on purpose :(
however, despite my melancholy over that, i did notice today that Moor Hens move their heads when they are swimming to such an extent that they seem to be propelled solely by their necks, which made me giggle a bit.
my job today was 6 hours of excruciatingness. a full third of the sites i had to categorise today were just domain names that are for sale (you know when you get the lovely blue page that sort of pretends to be a search engine...), and probably another 5th or so were sites with a random string of letters and numbers.doman.com, where doman.com went to one of these "free offers sent to you directly in email" sites, but random string.doman.com didn't go anywhere at all. ick. however i did categorise more than 1000 sites in 6 hours. go me. or something.
sorry, not much useful to say right now. more creative stuff later tonight, i hope.
