  • Sore feet
  • Smelly feet
  • Smelly, pretty much, everything
  • Wild animals
  • Tame animals with an attitude
  • Wild animals that trick you into thinking that they are tame, only to rip your leg off at a moments notice
  • Wild animals driving motor vehicles that think it would be fun to knock someone, minding their own business, walking around the country on their buttocks
  • Eating bugs
  • Eating wild animals, especially those that have an attitude
  • No showers, see number two and three above
  • No warm bed to sleep in
  • No cold bed to sleep in
  • No Plurk
  • No Facebook
  • No blog (no way!)
I could go on, but I see that your lids are drooping, so I will leave you with some words of wisdom (not mine, of course) ...
