Allow me to tell you a story about a retarded cardinal

As most of you know, there are a lot of birds in the backyard here in Florida. I have had the pleasure of watching several of them have babies (Most of them stay in the same territory for a long time) so it's fairly enjoyable to have something to look at when you're outside.

Well, a couple of months ago my mom and I noticed that one of the two baby Cardinals was not really "progressing" quite so much. While one of them was able to feed itself, the other one would sit DIRECTLY on top of a pile of birdseed and beg it's dad to feed it. (They do this by chirping really loudly while flailing their wings up and down-quite amusing.) Anyway, my mom was joking about Mr. Cardinal's concerns for having a "short-busser."

Just this morning I saw both of the babies for the first time since they've started growing in their adult feathers. One is a boy and one is a girl (you can't tell when they're young.) The boy was busy taking a bath in the pond, while the girl.. well... First she tried to sit on the top of a bird feeder that has a protective dome on it to keep out squirrels. She slid right down off of that and flew away in a panic. Then she sat on top of another feeder looking confused. After that, she tried for about five minutues to find a good seat on top of a papyrus plant. Each time it just bent under her weight (which isn't much, mind you) and she nearly dipped into the pond.

I still don't think she's eaten anything yet today.

Anyone wanna come to FL sometime within the next two weeks? I'll feed you. Pretty please?

As usual, I'm not invited to the annual Martha's Vineyard trip, so I'm gonna be alone.

The nearest person I know is in Atlanta. Grrr...

What's the deal?

I feel abandoned. Is this intentional? If it is, just let me know so I can figure out what to do next and stop sitting around wondering.

I'm... kind of freakin out here. There are a couple people I know who don't hate me, so I suppose I'll survive, but... still.


I rarely* intend to piss people off


Uh.. yeah.

*there are certain cicumstances involving people named jon and perhaps that one time I attempted arson... oh and a couple of small children, probably. Maybe my sister too. Anyway... my point is that whatever it was, it was an accident I'm sure.

So, every self-test I take says I likely have schizophrenia. They probably can't say "definitely," though.

Especially that "noticeable drop in grades" one.

I'm wondering if anyone remembers this one...lol

So, the fabulous people over at B3ta.com sent out a link to www.meandr.net where you start a sentence and it finishes it by searching for random things in twitter. I guess it's just "insert noun, adjective, verb" kind of stuff.

Seriously, don't piss me off or:

---I'll feed you to the people in the large purple gorilla and banana costumes handing out one dollar bills to be kind of irritating.

---I will tell you.

I really don't like

---it when people say 'back in the day when people had to use win excel to finish.'

---the idea for a song I record on thursday.

---this job some days not enough to pay for classes rocks me. (???)

---strong winds. (LOL)

---the bus driver' said low cloud. (I make up my own punctuation sometimes...)

Dude, you totally

---into it and wrote a contract that requested in section f that we weren't able to meet with some of his current batch.

---had a dream where I went back to wv to do the groceries

Why did my dad

---cook food? I really wanted to see space mountain.

---give me the lesson of the life of Hatebear?

---have to be so territorial? (is he a dog?)

---buy my brother a present off of your direction today?

Um yeah, I should end this before it gets ridiculously long.

So I took poor Vel back into the computer depot and they fixed him up but good. I HAVE INTERNETS. I also don't have to fuck around with Jeremy's broken keyboard anymore. My keyboard works fine.

Also, some of my friends will understand that it took me so long to do this because I kind of had the following mindset.
"but... sims still works... so... yeah... I can wait."

Ya know, cuz sims is totally the only importance in my life right now. :)

Kind of, but they flare at the knee because tapered-leg anything kind of sucks

Have you ever dreamt of a fictional character?
who hasn't? Seriously.

How many times have you dyed your hair?
Oh maybe 10? I'm not sure.

Have you ever thought about asking someone out, but you didnt?

Do you wish you had asked that person out when you had the chance?
Yeah, but I'm over it.

Kate? Chazz? Crap I don't remember.

Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
There are some details missing, but usually, yes.

Do you trust people?
I kind of start out neutral, (as in I trust them not to punch me randomly) but then people either become trustworthy or not.

Do you think you can last for an hour without talking?
I do that daily.

Would you die for someone?
It kind of depends on who it is.

If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?
I would NEVER SLEEP because I would need to research EVERYTHING. And by "thing," I mean "one."

If going back in time was an option would you?
Who wouldn't?

Do you love your friends?
I do

Do you think people dwell on the past too much?
Yeah, but if we didn't dwell at all, we probably wouldn't learn anything.

If a girl was gorgeous but an absolute idiot, would you go for her anyways?
Nope. I'm straight. Also I hate idiots.

Who is the most attractive person you know personally?
Um. I don't know. The most attractive person I've SEEN was actually a tranny. Figure that out. He fooled me. Totally thought he had a penis.

Does anything on your body hurt?
My hips a little bit, but that's because I carry tension in them and I'm sitting crosslegged in a wooden chair.

Last person you thought about?
Um... Obviously that tranny from like... 2 questions ago.

Last time you went outside?
On the way to lab. i still haven't left the building.

Do you want more than you have in life?
Yeah... I feel like everyone can think of something they'd like changed. But I'm not completely miserable.

If it's REALLY embarassing I might run and hide, but usually I laugh.

Do you have a significant other?

Can you sing at all?

Who do you live with?
Jeremy, and about 6 people I hardly know. And Berkley the dog, but I don't see much of her.

What does your bedroom smell like?
It smells like clutter. And a bit of salt.

What was the highlight of your week so far?
Um. I don't know. Maybe playing with dry ice.

Last movie you watched in theaters?

Who were you with?
Kate and Katie. Maybe Will. I CAN"T REMEMBER!

Blue-grey. Mostly grey.

Before school started.

blue, black, silver, deep purples.

Do you have any friends that you've known for 10 years or more?
EH. I met EH when I was what... 7? 8?

Do you like to have long hair or short hair?
That's kind of iffy, because I like having long hair, but I have a cowlick that grows hair in a completely different texture, and it breaks easily. So when I have long hair, as in now, it's kind of unbalanced. lol.
