I asked if dingos look like kangaroos & they explained to me that dingos are more or less Australian coyotes. They also told me about how a dingo stole and ate a baby in the 1980s.
I had never heard about this before--apparently, I'm the last person on earth to know about this. There's even a lifetime movie about the woman who was imprisoned for 3 years after being charged with the murder of her infant daughter, when in reality, her baby had been carried off by a dingo. A glimpse into Wikipedia revealed that a coroner confirmed, ON MY BIRTHDAY THIS YEAR no less, that a dingo had, in fact, stolen and eaten the baby.
That obviously means nothing but I thought it was an interesting coincidence...
Today, I had lunch with my intern friends at a vegetarian restaurant.
The dirty bitches totally tricked me into going because I fully appreciate my meats and vegan cupcakes do nothing for me.
BUT much to my surprise, it was pretty tasty. & the place was packed.
While waiting for our table, I stepped outside to look around at the restaurant's vegetable & fruit garden.
(So cute!) & I took this picture:
& I'm all, "What an interesting flower! It kind of looks like an artichoke?"
& then I found out, it IS an artichoke (dun dun dun!) & that they grow flowers when they mature.
So I was really excited that I learned something today.
& then, while driving home, I started thinking about how this photo reminds me of this photo:
& I was like, "thistles and artichokes look a lot a like...I wonder if they're related?"
& then I googled it & Wikipedia said: THEY ARE (dun dun DUN!)!
Artichokes ARE thistles.
As you can tell, my life is full of excitement.
BUT I am glad I learned things today:
- Artichokes grow flowers;
- Artichokes are thistles;
- Dingos have been documented to eat babies.
I'm really just trying to get back into the swing of blogging, or writing, rather. It was something that I used to love & used to be important to me & I've really been neglecting it.
I'm sorry that my posts haven't been the gold of this blog's once illustrious past...
But anyway, here's a picture of the restaurant:
That's all I got!
