"I believe I met a girl in the rain, who had lost her mother's earrings. And I killed her. Now I stand here in a time I know nothing about. I watched the death of kings far greater than any man living now. And I am still here."

I'm starting to lose my sense of time again. June and July became one short month and for the last two weeks I've been sure it's September, that's how long we've been in August!!

I somehow managed to finish this book in three days which is unheard of. It's a huge achievement for me, between work, going to the gym and needing a mid afternoon nap to keep me going

I've officially given up hope that the good weather will return again, its just grey grey grey.

"If too many documentary films and cartoons about the 1.4-meter (4.5-foot) tall emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) of Antarctica have colored your perception of penguins, fairy penguins will surprise you, and in a good way. Once they stand up on a beach, their overwhelming cuteness may very well compel you to babble an infantile string of nonsensical monosyllables while dissolving into a puddle of goo. First of all, these are the smallest of penguins, with adults reaching about 30 centimeters (12 inches), one third the height of the Star Wars droid R2D2. Second, their backs are composed of nearly iridescent-blue feathers, their bellies are white, and their cheeks have just a hint of blush, a plumage contrasting with that of the severe black-and-white tuxedo outfits worn by their southernmost relatives.

 

Further adding to their charm, fairy penguins hold their thin black wings out from their sides as they walk with webbed feet, looking as if they are performing a balancing act; which in effect they are, because they would easily topple over at the slightest push. (Please don’t do this, though. Remember: overwhelming cuteness.) All of these traits are endearing enough in any given penguin, but when multiplied by hundreds, all of them baby-stepping out of the surf together and looking like one big happy family, it is enough to elicit squeaks and squeals from even the most hardened anti-penguin cynics. No wonder, then, that a longtime fairy penguin colony on the seashore of Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia, has become a huge tourist attraction. Throughout each year, hundreds of thousands of fellow biped admirers gather nightly to watch the hundreds of these birds ambling up the beach in a “penguin parade.”"

If this use of alligator dens doesn’t impress as a form of protection, then think of alligator babies. That’s right: cute little alligator babies, which easily fit on the palm of an average adult human hand when newly hatched. Only later do they grow up to become monsters—much like how human children eventually turn into teenagers. Despite being so adorable, nearly everything bigger than a baby alligator—including other alligators—regards it as an appetizer. Hence these little tykes need defending, which is partially provided by their overprotective mothers, but also by dens. Alligator mothers stay with their offspring for as long as two years after they hatch, and if dens are nearby, they will use these not only as places with plenty of fresh water (which baby alligators need), but also for hiding the kids from trouble.
