FROGGONE IT!

16 hours of 24 have been borne with fortitude and fortune. And things are happening. I have started listening to CCR while being attacked by a green, gay frog. Right now it is hiding behind the mirror and I am hiding behind the computer. I would return the poor, frightened thing back to the home it comes from, I really would. But you see strong-legged amphibians are really not the easiest to negotiate with.
I was reading this article today about how ‘tinkering with nature is a bad idea’. More than fifty years ago around a hundred cane toads from Central and South America were released in Australia to check cane crop pests. The toads quickly proliferated to reach mammoth numbers (around 200 million) and is deemed today as one of Australia’s worst environmental debacles, having become unpleasant pests themselves. This ‘assisted migration’ has far-reaching effects on territorial integrity and the food chain argued the author, while the counter view stressed strongly upon massive environmental changes, due to deforestation and global warming, that render species shelter-less and without adequate nutritional sources.
I personally feel no problem can be solved completely unless it is nipped in the bud. And the solution here seems to be to concentrate on reversing, else preventing the damaging after-effects of global warming. And deforestation can easily be checked. Or maybe I am talking out of my hat. Whatever it is, the thousands of species on the endangered list need fast theoretical and faster practical attention.
And right now that tiny frog crouching behind the mirror needs to be helped back before it starves (or attacks me again! Whichever comes first…*praying praying*).
Here froggie, froggie….here froggie…

Verrrry surprising entry...You sound like one of those people who cry when they think of Bambi's mommy dying...But then again.. having a few more stoned out dreamy eyed environmentalists in the world doesn sound like a bad thing at all :)

why not? kissing me can cause you to have daylight delusions and throw you into sudden fits paranoid schizophrenia! which is like, way more effective (and cheap) than crystal meth.

I'm a tropical froggie :)

apologies for every single click that your beautiful (i'm sure) and delicate (i hope) fingers had to endure to compensate for my stupidity and lack of attention.

oh and sorry for "accidentally" leaving the pre-previous comment from my "test" account. which basically means the same thing as above but i believe in clarifications.

erm...a trifle verbose are we??i like em tropical froggies...in those tropical forests...!

but tropical froggies that maintain blogs? hmmmmmmm

surajsharma said...

yes we are. but I believe all tropical frogs are like that, it's a part of our humid amphibious nature. of course, there are those *other* frogs (sub-tropical ones) who type as if the longevity of their lives is directly proportional to the concise nature of their SMS inspired correspondence, but I'm a different cat. At least I appear to be, (the frog is now a cat). Anyways, saw your comment on weedy's blog, and a desperate urge to impress you somehow took all further responsibility for my "verboseness" etc.

If you know him personally, you can ask weedy about me, I'm sure he'll have a thing or two to say about me and my erm..verbosity?
