a drifting wolf
34 year old fangirl of, among other things, pacific rim, vikings, marvel movies, game of thrones and strike back.
mostly it's about pacific rim: becketcest, hansencest, any combination of beckets and hansens. ;) very occasional herc/mako/raleigh as well, if prodded for it.
Busy days at work with people leaving, and the person I usually work with hasn’t been in for a few days and there’s been no cover provided, so…
Yeah, kind of tired.
Good stuff: booked tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy next Thursday night. \o/
Going round to my brother’s this Saturday for Thai food and a movie. :)
Plans to go shopping with my sister in a couple of weeks. :D
My exciting life!
The raven is sometimes known as “the wolf-bird.” Ravens, like many other animals, scavenge at wolf kills, but there’s more to it than that.
Both wolves and ravens have the ability to form social attachments and they seem to have evolved over many years to form these attachments with each other, to both species’ benefit.
There are a couple of theories as to why wolves and ravens end up at the same carcasses. One is that because ravens can fly, they are better at finding carcasses than wolves are. But they can’t get to the food once they get there, because they can’t open up the carcass. So they’ll make a lot of noise, and then wolves will come and use their sharp teeth and strong jaws to make the food accessible not just to themselves, but also to the ravens.
Ravens have also been observed circling a sick elk or moose and calling out, possibly alerting wolves to an easy kill. The other theory is that ravens respond to the howls of wolves preparing to hunt (and, for that matter, to human hunters shooting guns). They find out where the wolves are going and following. Both theories may be correct.
Wolves and ravens also play. A raven will sneak up behind a wolf and yank its tail and the wolf will play back. Ravens sometimes respond to wolf howls with calls of their own, resulting in a concert of howls and calls.

I need to write something wolfy soon. I miss writing wolves…
Yay, rain. Back room now soaking, including wallpaper, carpet and curtains. Ruined. Fuck you, rain.
Ahhh, I saw How To Train Your Dragon 2 last night and it was *beautiful*.
Also saw Transformers Age of Extinction and it was looong. Tired eyes.
But Bumblebee. <3
how is it so late already? I have accomplished precisely nothing.
Tired and hot.
I couldn’t bear to watch S2. S1 was just so sad! I was shipping so hard and then….. I like my angst but damn, that was too much for me! I’ll probably catch up once I’m not so busy but I’m afraid of what they did this season to top last season.
Worth it. :) Villainous types you’ll want to slap, and… other stuff. Still a fair bit of angst, though, fair warning.
Well, based on a bunch of posts I saw here, I went off and watched the entirety of In The Flesh (season 1 yesterday, season 2 today…)
Um, yes… it was good. o.o
Finally, after so many years, finished watching the last of The West Wing.
Martin Sheen is amazing.
Jimmy Smits is grrr, lovely. >.>
…and oh, how my sister and I yay’d at Josh and Donna finally sorting their shit out. (I’m assuming this spoils NOBODY, since it was ten years ago.)
