look what i saw running round a local street late the other night! no, no, look closer. see to the left of the middle? that white stripe? that's the back of the skunk. near the base of the lamppost. yes, that's it! (it's hard to take a photo of something that's running away from you on a dark street. you can click on the photo and make it bigger if you want, but i don't know if it'd help.)
the skunk was very big and broad like a plank, and rocked from side to side when it walked. it looked something like this, except bigger and flatter:

i have no other news. i'm not feeling crash hot, so plan to spend today vaguing around, maybe going for a swim to stretch out some muscles, and maybe heading to a cafe to do some marking. or i might go back to bed and read _night watch_.
it is sunny here again - FABULOUS - and top of 11.
spring is on the way!
there are tiny little pink and green buds on the trees.
