Go play with my pet

Check my pet dartanion out in the side bar. He really likes it if you click on him and play a bit. If he looks hungry click on the "more" tab and feed him.

Why a bat, you might ask? well I am trying to get over a little phobia I have fostered since my formative years...

You know when the grown ups tell you that if a bat gets in your hair it will get tangled in forever? WHY DO THEY DO THAT?

I mean, lets be honest, it really is downright mean. Firstly because if it landed on you it would decide to roll around til it was knotted - surely that would take some doing(?) and secondly because as everyone knows, bats never come too close to people (sonar and all that).

WRONG!!!

I always get mocked when I show any slight timidity (ok, ok, terror and revulsion) toward bats. And the annoying ones will pipe in with (imagine a high-pitched nasal voice) "but caz, you are supposed to be a nature lover. It is not like it would ever touch you".

Amateurs.

I HAVE THE UNFORTUNATE DISTINCTION OF BEING A BAT MAGNET!!!!!

I have had one land on my head once and a few years later on my face while i was sleeping.

What do you think the odds of that actually are? I reckon if i lived in Bumblebee tuna land I would be a queen or something for my frequent associations with the sacred creatures (If you get that reference then you are a true compadre and i will be well impressed!!)

Frikken little bloodsuckers are everywhere!

It's all good, dart is cute and i like the why he eats the flies. It's okay though because bats are attracted to my mother aswell. I know so pretty funny stories of, "WHEN FRUIT BATS ATTACK"

Anywho peace
