    Well luckily Cyclone was a bit if a non-event for us in Cairns. I was prepared for the worst.

    More good news, through some strange events I brought home my first carpet python although it isn't what I was expecting my first carpet to be.

    I was meant to get my a carpet python freighted up with another woma, last Friday night. But with the cyclone closing in I got the sender to postpone it until Wednesday.

    Anyway a local breeder decided to have a facebook auction to pass some time while we were all waiting for the storm to pass and I won. I guess the one being freighted would be the first carpet I paid for and the one I won will be first carpet I brought home.

    Had a report on facebook whinging about snakes being kept in 'appalling conditions' in a shop near Ubud
    All the so called animal lover screaming about cruelty etc
    Demanded we help sort it out
    I suggested relaxing until we could get there to see the truth
    Immediately blasted by idiots demanding we go straight away
    My reply snake rescues come first then we will look

    They start demanding that 3 albino burmese and other exotics get taken by us and released in a nice river gorge??
    My reply
    OK the snakes are in pristine condition
    Very well fed and spotlessly clean
    Boxes are too small for 3 bigger ones
    Owner has taken on board some suggestions
    Exotic snakes and albinos cannot be released
    So who will chip in to buy 3 larger enclosures for the owner

    Instant silence

    Bear in mind that these are exactly the same people who just donated $10.000 to BARC so that BARC can have its own monkey zoo with no intention of rehabilitation or release because the monkeys will make BARC a motza

    But donate $300max towards helping snakes???
    No way Jose

    I wish the Qantas freight wasn't so late. I'm so tired and have to keep myself awake until my parcel arrives at 10ish.

    Man, the rudest people on this planet are humans!

    I'm still fuming over my last landlord.
    Sends me a txt asking me to nominate a time for the final inspection & to sign the bond back to me.
    I reply 1:30pm.
    The landlord doesn't turn up 'til 6 that evening, claiming he was at work all day & "Can't drop everything just because I give him a time."
    Why the hell ask me to nominate the time in the first place???

    Insurance companies really don't like to make getting money you are owed out of them easy... Haven't been paid since before December last year! Not my fault people can't watch where they are going and wind up almost killing me in a car accident, not my fault my doctor tells me I can't work despite my best wishes :(

    Online teachers who don't answer your questions for days on end, and when they do answer it's obvious they were drunk or high or at the very least extremely distracted because they OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T EVEN LOOK AT YOUR FILE. And it keeps happening... UGH!!!

    Lol, who wrote that?
    Tortoises don't have webbed feet with claws or flippers, the shells are lighter and shaped differently with turtles and tortoises are mainly land based whereas turtles have those other 2 differences and are water based.

    Some webpage I read when I looked up the difference between a turtle and terrapin after someone on Facebook commented on a pic of some baby freshwater turtles saying that they weren't turtles, they're terrapins... I think the website was founditout.com or something
