Death-Neil Gaiman

Holy Crashing Eagles, Batman!

Holy cow, people! An eagle just crashed onto my office window!

Don't worry, nothing happened to the bird. Only its dignity was hurt.

The funniest thing is that it shook itself and then stood there in my windowsill for about 5 minutes, striking a pose and looking dignified. Sort of: "No, I didn't do anything stupid. That was done on purpose and here I am. Admire me."

Then it flew away.

I have to say, this is the closest encounter that I have ever had with an eagle. It was just a couple of feet away from me and it was awesome. And if the window had been open, I would have had an even closer encounter of the eagle kind, which would have been rather alarming for both bird and belfebe.

Wow. What a way to start the weekend . . .
