Baby Lemur

I visited the Melbourne Zoo… months ago. Seriously, it may have been last year. I don’t remember. Point is, I just got to sorting through the photos I took. I know, I’m the worst. But hey, better late than never I guess.

So this short post is just me throwing two of the photos at you all. There are some others that came out okay, and I may find an excuse to post them later. But for now, just two. Both are of a baby ring-tailed lemur. I know… adorable. So without further ado, I give you baby lemur:


Yes, that’s camera-shy mum hiding behind the tree. She wasn’t in the mood for paparazzi that day.


Isn’t s/he a cutie? Anyone know where I can get one??


My friend the inside joke

The Daily Prompt today is rather clean-cut.

You must complete the sentence: My closest friend is

Well, my closest friend is… a liability.

Okay, so that’s an inside joke. But in a way I suppose that simple gesture sums up a closest friend succinctly. I just informed my housemate, whom that is directed at, that I was writing that, and he lost his shit. He laughed that laugh that makes you think you could close up shop and become a comedian. Or at the very least run away and join the travelling circus.

I’m sure no-one else laughed, but to us, that little phrase means something. And there are numerous other phrases that could also be uttered to the same effect. We all share those little inside jokes with a few others. And it is those few that surely be considered our closest of friends. Because sharing is caring. And friendship, or any relationship, is built on caring. And with those people that you can, almost subliminally, share the subtlest of jokes and recognize the slightest of nuances, you cannot help but connect with and (sometimes beyond logic) care about.
