Rain, Rain, Go Away . . . .

Things have been normal (whatever that means) around
the house for about a week now. Sugar laid another
egg, and when I threatened to take her to the vet for
a Lupron injection, she stopped.

Stormy here today; sudden rain interspersed with
sudden sunlight.

I know my birds mostly sleep while I'm at work, but I
can't help but suspect they do some communicating,
too. I mean, there are four of them in the same
room, sharing the same environment and the same
human. Anthropomorphizing again, but what the hell.

I've gotten the too-short first draft of my book
done, and am waiting on some feedback from a couple
of folks who know the technical stuff better than me.
I wish they'd hurry back with their suggestions; I
want to get the thing finished and done with.

I was busy last night and didn't have time to take my
birds out for individual scritches. I'll be busy
tomorrow night, too, so I might skip my chorus
rehearsal tonight in order to spend some quality
avian. And maybe even get my laundry caught up.

what is this "anthropomorphizing" of which you speak?
I know nothing about this. Not at all.

Hmmmm!

How's the flock doing?

It means attributing human characteristics to animals -- emotions, thoughts, etc. Except I believe animals do have emotions and thoughts, and I seriously wonder if we really are the 'superior" species.

I've got two blogs I'm trying to get up but they're not uploading for some reason.

Sorry- I was being facetious. What I meant was, I clearly anthropomorphize our animals too. In fact, we've sort of stopped experiencing them as animals. They're like roommates who never do the dishes.

It's one of the main reasons L and I are both vegetarian. Hope the book comes together ok.
