Around October 23rd in the Catskills I learned that a fox giving you a warning sounds exactly like a woman shrieking. I learned that my dog is a big coward that same night. :P

Edit: I has a video. When I played this, my dog FLIPPED out. She's forever scarred.

Well...yesterday I learned that if you bike 30 miles before lunch, eat only 1/4 of a sandwich and ride 30 more miles, by the last mile and 1/2 you are going to be so absolutely starving that you can't keep going without stopping for another sandwich. And then, the next day, what hurts the most isn't your knees or elbows but your rear end lol.

RIP Alexander, Morpheus and Phobos. You are missed :'(

I learned to be careful when using powdered charcoal--especially when you have black carpet! :( I can't see where I spilled it! lol..

I also learned how to care for a hawk-headed parrot and that garter snakes actually can get to a decent size!

I learned about scabies. :[

NOT THE HARD WAY!!!! Thankfully! XD

Unfortunately all my car-mates would talk about for like an hour or so was Scabies and semi-offensive faith-related songs. :/

Needless to say I was PRETTY uncomfortable that hour. :/ (hate parasitic bugs and really centered around my faith)

In other news: I learned a lot about different tree and flower species this weekend! =] I thought that was fun!

Here's one that's useful for us:

Oaks are prone to naturally hybridize and that's why it's often hard to distinguish one species of oak from another and how some oak trees' leaves can look really wonky. =]

I'm a girl! =]
