One quick, I mean extensive, Google search and I find that the Tree Kangaroo is also called Boongary. That’ll do nicely.
It is the 9th of December and I have received my first Christmas card. And some excellent stationery from a Twitter friend which I shall enjoy using. I might even have a comedy idea or two to write on the notepad. You never know your luck.
So, the Name Louise’s Tree Kangaroo Daemon competition fell on its nondescript face so I’m going to have to name him myself. I am taking this very seriously and will report back anon.
I have managed to buy myself a plethora of Christmas presents. There’s no money left to buy anyone else anything. Sorry. I do have the partial excuse that I was given a £20 Amazon voucher for joining Love Film. My exciting prezzies include the complete box set of Star Trek Original Series films (something I have wanted for YEARS). It, in turn, includes a very interesting interview with Shatner, Nimoy, Frakes, Stewart and Goldberg. Very interesting indeed. I have also invested in a few books one of which, annoyingly, is stuck in my letter box. Which means I need to invest in a key… Santa?
Looks like I might be going to a book launch (not my book) in the near to middling future. That will be exciting and irrationally scary.
So, now we have established my Daemon, my new favourite animal is the Tree Kangaroo. I will think of a name for mine soon but, until then, here are some fascinating facts about these mysterious creatures and below is the cuteness:
You are a quiet, solitary kind of person. You probably rely on your few close friends or family members
to get you out of the house occasionally, or you would probably forget to leave. You don’t like big crowds of people, or being in new social situations, because they make you feel uncomfortable and you get tired very quickly. You need to spend some time alone in front of a computer, book, or television to recharge after expending all of that social effort! You have a lot of personal projects that you like to spend time working on.
You don’t spend much time talking about yourself or your emotions. Your close friends and family probably have to try and remember to ask you directly about your feelings, and even then you probably just smile or shrug a lot of the time. People who don’t know you well probably forget that you even have emotions at all, because you never get angry or upset. Really, though, you just don’t think of your emotions as being important. It doesn’t even occur to you to call someone and complain about your day, or to retaliate when someone insults you. You march to the beat of your own drum, and you don’t really care that much when other people think. You are calm and logical in nature, and reacting emotionally to things simply doesn’t come naturally to you. Perhaps you have been hurt or embarrassed in the past, which makes you afraid to share your feelings. Or maybe you are just naturally that way.
At the same time, you are not uncaring, and you are aware of the feelings of other people around you. When a close friend or a family member is going through a rough time, you are sympathetic and probably wish you knew how to make it better.
Your daemon’s form would reflect your solitary, calm, logical nature, but would not be aggressive or intimidating in appearance. He or she would probably spend time talking to you constructively about how to solve problems, or simply watching over your shoulder while you indulge in your hobbies.
Suggested form: Lizard, Gecko, Manatee, Tree Kangaroo, Grass Snake.
