Well what kind of fight was it? Couldn't the Ninja creep up and snap their neck? That's my first line of attack generally.
Okay I've been working full-time for several weeks now. Some days have been hard and I've been utterly depressed at times for various reasons. Other days have been good. Starting to lose weight now I am pretty certain, as my pecs are slightly more visible, and my stomach seems flatter. Also I have suddenly found it easier to do pull-ups again. Hair is slowly getting longer, and we are making steady progress with the film. Also some other potential news, but have to wait and see.
The other day at the sanctuary, we cleared out a bunch of crap, and found a tire with a rats nest in it. The guy I was working with then started clearing out the tire, and discovered that there was a (live) baby rat in there, very young, no fur, eyes still closed, probably only about 1.5 inches long. He looked at it for a while, then proceeded to throw the rat into the trash, and pile on more trash on top of it. I didn't know what to do - since rats are exterminated, and nobody gives a shit (even though it's an animal sanctuary???). So I made sure the rat didn't suffocate, then later when nobody was looking I got it out, and took it to a safe place and left it there. I assumed it would still die, since it would be without food for the rest of the day until I could go back to it. But when I got there, it was still alive, so I took it home, and phoned around until I found someone who knew how to look after such young animals, and gave it to them. I presume that it has died, though I will phone again soon to find out. I just find it unbelievable that someone would throw a baby animal into the trash. Any animal is bad enough, but this thing was so helpless.
