Do seagulls mate for life ?

i hope not ’cause that’s about the most boring thing a creature can do…
anyhow, here’s one of my neighbors, it’s seemingly single, free and mind-numbing beautiful.

my new alarm clock

or at least, one of the little creeps that have taken to circling and landing on the roof right above my head all the while screaming and making the goofiest of goofy sounds only gulls make, at seven in the morning.

far from complaining, i rather like them and welcome a little diversity specially when it concerns everyday mundane things like waking up… i just wish they came with snooze buttons and maybe some kind of volume control.
