Oh Em Gee, I Am So Tired

I've about had it with this overtime and yet it will continue. So... very... tired...

Came out of work today to find the parking lot wet. It apparently rained. Huh. I didn't think it did that anymore.

For the last several weeks, I have been wondering at a strange, somewhat exotic bird call outside; I wasn't sure if there was something new in the neighborhood or if the mockingbirds have been hanging out at the zoo. But on Saturday morning I could hear the calls, and they were coming from a specific direction. So I stood on the driveway and listened, zeroing in on the trees around the house kitty-corner to us. As I was scanning the trees I noticed the enormous BIRD CAGE in their backyard, filled with, you guessed it, exotic birds (I either have to use binoculars or go look over their fence to see exactly what kind, and I haven't done either yet...). Of course, the local mockingbirds ARE imitating them, so...

One mystery solved.


Barb posted some, too, in her journal (rahirah).

The new entertainment center:



New armchair with new end table:



New sofa and coffee table:



The other side of the entertainment center, with the extra media shelf:



I like 'em. It's pretty! And lots and lots of space.


I have a casserole in the oven, and I HAVE to go to bed early. I'm freakin' exhausted. I'm almost glad Barb was sick on Sunday, since I was able to simply veg out (I fell asleep while listening to the radio and slept through almost all of Prairie Home Companion). I was very nearly worthless today and made some seriously stupid mistakes.

The D on my keyboard is being recalcitrant and difficult. I have to really BANG on it to make it type.

I want pictures of the exotic birds! (I think it's so cool that people can keep exotic birds outside there.)

I'll have to see what I can get with the telephoto!

I'm sure they'll take the cage in in late December, but right now it's still pretty hot outside during the days!

A few years ago, we had a bird of some sort hanging out in the park behind our house that sounded *exactly* like a kookaburra. It was there all summer, disappeared for a winter and was back the next summer... but we haven't heard it since. While we don't have mockingbirds here, it would totally not surprised me that one of the crows picked up the call by hanging out near the zoo or something and liked the way it sounded.

I have had mockingbirds around with amazing ranges of calls (including one, for a while, that could do a toucan!) -- no crows around, but mockers are amazing!

I like it, too. Lots of storage space! It totally rocks.

Shouldn't be too bad -- I'm in charge of answering complaints, and if there's a gripe about it, I can own up and tell 'em what I did. I love being all "buck stops here" within my unit...

It can be a tiny bit stressful at times, but yeah, on the whole. Today I got an email that was gigantically sarcastic from one of our "business partners" -- I set it aside and won't answer until I can without being snide.... :)

With the mockingbirds catching on, you'll have exotic bird calls everywhere.

I feel like crap on Sunday myself. Planning to head to bed early. Also, my jaw is hurting. I must have been clenching it again.

Is crap on Sunday worse than crap on Monday? (Damn D key!!! I may have to live without the letter D...)
