The next season of Gotham is being shot in Brooklyn. While walking around Williamsburg, unsuspected pedestrians could come about some interesting props. Like this Gotham City Police Department car casually parked on the street.
The Ice Age is coming and I shall be your Ice Queen !
Blood moon eclipse
Yesterday I witnessed my first lunar eclipse. Turns out this one was a very special one and a very rare occurrence. It was a combination of a perigee (aka. supermoon) when the moon is closest to the earth and the lunar eclipse.
FitBit’s Sahara Badge
As I was walking into my loft, the FitBit app cheerfully announced that I had earned a new badge. The Sahara badge to be exact for walking 2,983 miles, which coincidentally is the length of the Sahara Desert. It seemed to have taken me 2 years to walk that distance. Guess if I ever get stuck in the Saraha Desert, I know how long it will take me to get out of there.
Release of the squirrel
Got an email from Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation informing me that my baby grey squirrel “was released back into the wild once it was completely recovered and able to survive on its own.” The squirrel would have been about 4 months old by now. I’m guessing that’s old enough to be able to survive on it’s own.
How I ended up with a squirrel as a pet
One day I was crossing the parking lot to get to the grocery store, and noticed something odd on the ground. A little tiny grey baby squirrel. At first, I thought it was dead, as it not move as I approached it. To this day, I don’t know how it ended up in the middle of a parking lot with hardly any trees around.
After a split second of consideration, I made the decision that the baby squirrel is coming home with me. It didn’t fight me, as I slowly picked it up and I took that as a sign that it didn’t sustain any major damage, like broken bones. At home, I made a small nest out of a towel and left the squirrel alone.
For the next two weeks, the baby squirrel lived with me. It recovered quite fast from what I diagnosed as fatigue. Once it had a good day/night/day sleep it appeared to be a healthy squirrel with lots of energy and big appetite.
As much as I wanted, I couldn’t keep it indefinitely. I lived in a fairly small apartment with hardly any light. And definitely no backyard, that the squirrel could have enjoyed. Eventually, I took it to Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation. I was promised they’ll take good care of the baby squirrel and will release it into the wild once it was ready.
Welcome and thank you for landing here. This note marks the start of my blog. I will post about random stuff I see, places I visit and events I go to. Hope you’ll enjoy and keep checking back for updates.
