There's a Blackhawk zooming back and forth outside my window. I'd guess it's circling over Kew, thereabouts, maybe further. Red lights flashing dee-der-dee-der and swoosh it turns and goes powering back the way it came.

Back and forth and back and forth and back and forth. It's like a big red yo-yo in the sky.

Kinda hope it gets bored and zooms off somewhere else soon. Even at this distance I can hear it. I pity the houses beneath.


  1. There were four of them going back and forth somewhere over Collingwood/Lygon Street outside my office yesterday afternoon. It was shortly before the earthquake. Coincidence? Hmm...

    And yes, they sounded like a truck. A big truck. A big loud truck.

  2. Nah, it was just the military doing counter terrorism exercises. Over, and over, and over again.
