Seagulls, as you know, never falter, never stall. To stall in the 
air is for them disgrace and it is dishonour. 
 But Jonathan Livingston Seagull, unashamed, stretching his 
wings again in that trembling hard curve - slowing, slowing, 
and stalling once more - was no ordinary bird.

That happened to me once. I mean, I wasn't climbing the Eiger or whatever the fuck that guy is doing, but mobbed by seagulls who wanted me dead, yeah. They're complete assholes very protective of their nests.

I had to fight them for my lunch in schools growing up. Including the earlier times, when they were a substantial fraction of my size.

Oh shit, sorry! Should have put it behind a cut for you.

I still vividly remember that shot Lisa got of you cowering from Bird Lady's Bird on the patio.

She loooks at her as if to say
The day is done
It's time to find their shelter

Hidden in the dunes

And fall asleep the
Music of the moon
You and me

Lesbian seagull, O fly with me lesbian seagull
