I didn’t sleep well last night. I don’t say that as an intro to discussing my physical or mental health, just noting that I’m tired– y’know, like anybody might be. I’ve been sitting in my living room either staring glassily at my computer or trying to get minor things done and so far have managed a few sentences of fiction and not much else. I can’t go anywhere on the Internet because I know there are Walking Dead spoilers out there waiting for me and I won’t be able to watch last night’s episode for another three hours or so. If I’m still awake.

I may need a nap.
I only took a few pictures, but why not, they make for a good Monday morning post. The zoo previously had two elderly Amur tigers who both passed away in the last year from natural causes. They just recently replaced them with four, effectively, kittens. They’re all two years old, and apparently the tiger people are having fits from having to adjust from two geriatric tigers to four energetic babies.
Well, not so much “energetic” today, I guess. Witness the Triangle of Tiger! The fourth one was around the corner.
Flamingo. They have a dozen or so but this one was close by.
And a peacock. The zoo has two peacocks and they’re allowed to just wander around as they see fit. Both of them were hanging around the food court trying to steal french fries. It was pretty cool.
Note that this isn’t typical behavior for them, which is kind of surprising. If I was a bird and I knew there was easy food at the food court all the time, I’d be there more often, but I’ve never seen the peacocks there before.
