Wandering along the riverside (if squirrels only knew how cute they were..), I couldn't help but be struck by how comparatively effortlessly the swans moved. Rather than the rapid swimming of the various species of duck, the swans had enough momentum that just a single leg flap every few seconds was enough to keep them gliding along, even against the wind. (Seeing them land is quite something, too!)
Into the library, and picked up Tom Holt's "Only Human", and Stanislaw Lem's "Solaris". Took a peer around the DVDs, but with enough of a backlog already, I chose to leave them for another time (the DVDs and such aren't free, but way less than any commercial offerings). I was intrigued by "Divine Intervention", though, and "Japon" might be worth a viewing. I was amused to see a copy of Happy Tree Friends there too.. not my style of humor, but yes, they do have quite a diverse choice. ^_^
And the latest issue of the "what's on locally" guide has an utterly adorable portrait photo of a very fluffy fox, which I may have to scan at some point.
And the housemate snagged some bargain five-spice marinated chicken legs for dinner (chicken legs? I remarked they must've been getting a little too friendly with the turkeys), and some very promising bottles of wine, which will doubtless be the subject of future investigation, especially the Errazuriz 2001 Syrah.
