Tigers, mountain lions and starting a new sort of job-thing on Monday.

It's funny how, in spite of all previous experience, you keep on believing that doing something new and different will actually change your life.

The things that actually change your life kind of sneak up on you gradually, or pounce unexpectedly like a mountain lion. I have no idea if mountain lions really pounce unexpectedly, but I'm enjoying imagining it happening.

I think the most unexpected and pouncy big cat related event I ever have experienced ( in a non-lazy-metaophor kind of way) was at the Melbourne Zoo during a school excursion. An especially indolent and bored looking tiger sprang *whoosh* at the wire cage while my friend Kylie and I were peacefully standing there looking pretty indolent and bored (because we were fifteen and had been forced to go to the zoo). It taught me two things. One, you really can't use karate or kung fu to fight a gigantic carnivore. Two, you really, really should keep outside those little wooden barriers that they put in front of the wire and not stick your fingers in the cages of gigantic carnivores, just like the signs tell you.

Kylie fell onto her bottom and her mouth opened up. Her teeth were comparatively unimpressive, though.

I expect my new job will be unlike the tigers and mountain lions. And also, I hope, unlike things that skulk around corners. My new job is not zookeeper, or circus animal act. It's exactly like my old job, in an office downstairs from my old job, but it's a different job. It's a public service thing, I guess.

U2 are in teh pubes. For a minute I thought we might share a building, as mine has multiple public agencies too, however you inhabit Canberra. Anyway, good luck!

Nice cat analogy too. Finding out we were pregnant was not, theoretically a surprise. We'd given it a red hot go. However when I heard my name called out from the bathroom in 'that voice' at 6am, it was definitely in the order of being jumped on by a purple Liger...

Heh. Babies are surprising in all their manifestations.

I lives to serve teh public. By avoiding any direct contact with them, mostly.

Ampersand Duck said...

Ooh, you're having one of those merry-go-round experiences that so many of my Canberra acquaintances seem to have. Well, a change is as good... yada yada. Maybe not. I'd rather a holiday, but I hope you get increased job satisfaction!
