Just when you let your guard down...

I feel like the fear gigantic, venomous animals here has taken a bit of a back seat with me lately.  I haven't had any snakes coiled up under the house, or any massive spiders hiding on in our shoes that get left outside.  The only real fright I've had lately was when I went outside last night and a fruit bat swooped out of our front tree.  Not at my head, I don't think...but it was petrifying none the less.  The sound of those wings make it sounds like an albatross flying away!!

Anyway, I came in from a walk with the dogs today and went to the bathroom to wash my hands.  Turn the corner and WHAM, I'm met by this little guy.  Just chillin, hangin out, surveying the scene.  He could have maybe considered a classier perch, but he seems pretty content there.  So much so, that he/she is still kickin back 2.5 hours later.  I just close the door and hope he is gone when I come back.

*who knows, maybe he's potty trained?
*something about that evil little smile scares me.
 A few weeks ago I almost lost my mind when I came in to this:

I swear I am NEVER going to the bathroom in the middle of the night again!!  The funniest part is when you tell these kinds of stories to a fellow Queenslander all bug-eyed with a slight shrill in your voice and all you get is "yeah mate, that's normal".


  1. WHAT THE?! you just left him there?! was he dead in the water? what did you do?!

    a lot of unanswered questions my friend...haha

  2. Those are the things that scare the heck out of me (the spiders and snakes more then the cute frog)!!!
    As a side note I am impressed with how sparkly clean your bathroom is since you obviously weren't planning on a photo session in there ;)

  3. K, so what is a person supposed to do in these situations? Do you try to flush it away? When you move to Aussie-land, do they give you an instruction booklet for dealing with all the things that can kill/maim/torture you with their presence? At least this guy is cute, not that I'd want him hopping around my place, but it could've been worse.

  4. I am glad that is not normal where I am. I can tolerate a lot but a frog that big sitting on my toilet - I don't think so. .....and ditto about the beautifully clean bathroom :)

  5. I know it's just a frog but it makes me shudder.
