Windows 7: Today [8]

Came across a large ladybug in dire straits, lying on its back with twitching legs and one wing sticking out of its wing-case. After I carefully flipped it back onto its stomach, it proceeded to wander around the sill in a rather drunken manner, stopping every now and then to retract its trapped wing - without success. My hopes concerning its survival were rather low.
Fifteen minutes later, when I returned to my room, I found it sitting happily on the wall, with that wing finally fully retracted. Right on cue, it spread open its wing-cases and zoomed out of the window to the neighbour's tree. A determined little creature!

You're quite the animal savior, aren't you?

First wall lizards, then ladybugs...I wonder what will be next ;-)) I don't like to see the little critters suffer or experience discomfort, and helping them is usually such a straightforward matter. Our neighbour, by the way, is sure he saw a fox recently. Lots of animals are losing their habitat thanks to the building lobby, and they're wandering into human settlements. I've noticed that if a new house sprouts up, many birds will lose their lives flying against the glass - it can take a good year or two until they have adjusted their geography.

I am sorry to say that the rubbish bins at uni are not changed/cleaned out regularly. They do not even have a bin liner. The result: CLOUDS of drosophila flies sitting in the bins and feasting on the garbage. Nudge a bin with your foot, and a whole swarm of flies rises in protest. Today, I was forced to eat my lunch in another room after five or six flies kept circling my sandwich...

That is why I don't like to sit outdoors and eat in the summer....the bugs!

At least the bugs occur naturally in outdoor surroundings ;-D But indoors, they're breeding and breeding clandestinely in the garbage bins. The uni microwave, too, is filthy, coated with crumbs and a kind of crust which I dare not describe further...
And the uni computers have not been updated for six months, I think. The Firefox version installed on them is 3.6, for example...Sigh.

I work at a small restaurant, and you'd be amazed at what a microwave can look like even in one day's time.....we have to clean them out twice a day. So I can imagine what that one might look like.

The microwave over here has not been cleaned out for a year or more, I think There's a dark gritty substance coating the insides...
