blobs with no bones in

La Cucharacha! La Cucharacha! bdumbdumbdumbdum

A month or two back I happened to mention meeting a beautifully marked native cockroach whilst working, and got various expressions of horror when I described the care I took washing her off and sending her safely on her way. This disappoints me, although I'm well aware lots of people are phobic about them - Weldun's case started with waking up in the middle of the night he first day out of New Zealand - where roaches are small and cute - to find an inches-long Australian Roach sitting on his chest, waving its antennae in a little Cockroach "Hi there!"
