Can't speak for everyone else but I'm sleepign weird hours and not spending much time on the computer right now.

That being said, I drank something cold today and it didn't hurt!  Also no fever upon waking up today, so yay progress!


So, you're saying you did try the Long Island Iced Tea?

Sadly I was lacking in the ingredients to make one.  I  DID however have the ingredients for a hot toddy.  Emphasis on the past tense.   I won't CLAIM it helped with my recovery, but....

This year's generation of Fat Little Birds is far more organized than previous years.

First is one perching and pecking on the air conditioner to wake me up.

Then the postioning of the lead scout who reports the exact moment the front door closes when I'm done putting the food out.

Main group seems to be about 7 birds, 2 of whom are on rotating scout duty, keeping watch from the top of the lilac. 

It appears that my experiments in using a seed bell to grant the Fat Little Birds the power of the Thuum utilizing Odic Force last year has had a few side effects...I did not expect the children of the bell exposed birds to start practicing small unit tactics. The previous flocks were a mass of unruly little barbarians, these exhibit a Roman like disipline. 

The morning doves also are acting oddly, calming marching side by side up to the front door the other day like a pair of salesmen trying to sell me a vacuum. 

Some of this can probably be attributed to the presence of the Nesting Cat under the house, which would be an obvious source of increased paranoia for the birds, hence increased organization, but considering that the neighbor's seed eating cat was already a frequent visitor, and the occasional hawk swooping down it wasn't as if the prior barbarian horde didn't have reason to be alert. 

I think I'll get another seed bell next time I'm at Menards, if the current rate of Odic Force changes remains the same, by next year I will have a highly efficient Front Porch Defense Force, perhaps in 5 years, a small army of militant birds with which I can finally embark on my life's goal of conquering Kendall County....

(or I will be responsible for the sequal to "The Birds"... "Birds 2, This Time They Have Spears and Scream Verbal Abuse At You In Latin"

If pigs start showing up, especially pigs in army helmets, stand by, you are about to become a screen in an online video game.

You know it's a good day when you get a free laserjet printer and about $2000 worth of toner with it.

colour me jealous (which in this case is a nice, clean black) Not that I should speak, I had one once, but it is on a semi-permanent loan with my parents church.  Sometimes though i want it back. I so rarely print anything, but still.
