Bird’s Nest

Friday, December 8th, 2006

The weirdest thing I saw today was a can in the Thai mini-market in Northcote. It was called Birds’s nest and had the strange subtext of “Flavoured Artificial White Fungus” which made up 4% of the ingredients. There’s also some text that says “boisson au parfum du nid d’oiseau” and you hardly need a translater to work out what that means. I bought it and drank it. It wasn’t foul as such, but I wouldn’t buy another one.

Yes I am back from Egypt, and I should have put up a post about what I did there. But things are busy now, and I am very tired. I’ve been tired for a week now and it is not good. I almost fell asleep in front of the big boss today. I been doing stuff too. Yesterday I sorted through almost 1/3 of my Egypt & Jordan photos. They are now all geocoded and ready to appear on Flickr and Panoramio, but I’ll do that another day. For now I have a tiny sample of my holiday snaps. Indisputable evidence that I have been to the great pyramids at Giza.
