I am in the Victorian High Country. I am staying at Lindewarrah Country Estate in Milawa tonight. It's fantastic because our net has been capped, and I have really been struggling without access. Here I am free as a bird to suft the net to my heart's content.
Now the strangest thing happened today. I was listening to the radio between Beechworth & Wangaratta, and they were talking about what animals people would like to cross to create their dream species. Someone calls in and says a koala and a kangaroo, and scott dooly says "well lots of kangaroos get hit by car, but there are never ever any koalas on the road" in response to the roadkill aspect.
I am then driving back to Milawa a few hours later through the Warby Ranges, when a FLIPPING KOALA IS ON THE ROAD IN FRONT OF MY CAR !!!! I screeched on the brakes and cherries went flying. It grabbed hold of the tree before i could get my camera out and photograph it on the road, it was a truly adorable little thing!
Escaping from turning into roadkill (good move)
Getting a better view of me...
This disgusting parma was my only dinner option (the alternatives were things like Chicken Kiev, and bacon and cheese in a "sandwich" of beef fillets.. omg, just the thought!).
Check out those underbaked chips, not to mention to chicken fillet itself! Well, i was starving, what could i do!?
Here I am walking home from the pub.. my hair i really bothering me today. It's like it's gone EXTREMELY damaged, it's this yucky dry oily rooty mess.. I have had a nastly pimple on my cheek! Why am i still getting pimples. Imagine walking in these environs every day.. ahh...
Staying here, in the vines...
There is some creepy animal call going on relentlessly outside my window. Cross between a rattlesnake, a duck, and a frog.
