A Flock on Legs

I was in line at the checkout at the Dollar Store when I heard the strange loud whistling. It was a sort of high-pitched chirp-whistle thing and I thought maybe someone was playing with their car alarm. But when I walked out of the store with bags in had, I saw this:

Pretty rad, eh? That's a flock of birds on two legs if I ever saw one.


Oh, and for those of you who were wondering, no I'm not dead on the side of the road. And yes, I do intend to continue blogging. It's just that real life has a tendency to catch up with a blogger such as myself and I got a wee bitty overwhelmed. Not surprising when you take into consideration that I've been moving (by myself) into my own apartment, there have been major issues at work, I have sort of started seeing someone, and I'm just plain boring to boot. ;)

Ah but no worries, I've been filing amusing little tid-bits in the back of my mind to pull out for future blogs. But until then, let me know what you think!


  1. Well I'm glad when you do stop in to blog now and then. Good luck with the move, work, and the relationship. There's got to be some good stories with all that going on in your life.

  2. Well, if you would ASK for help moving, I/we'd be happy to help! But we tend to be stubborn independents, huh. And, fill me in with the new beau!

  3. Is that bird crap all over him? Gross.

  4. Wow, now that is something you don't see every day! Good thing, eh?

    Sounds like you've been busy! Enjoy your new apartment & new relationship.

  5. So are those spots on his pants paint or bird doo-doo? Yikes! Good luck with all of the changes going on, and more deets on the relationship please!! :-)

  6. I have to say I have missed you!!! I was thinking about you last night and wondering how the move and you were doing! Good to see you back and to hear things are going well..OK, I would have jumped at the chance to help you, silly! Geoff and I would have loved too. If you need anything just let me know:)

  7. Seeing someone? Do tell!
    I love birds but I'd be too afraid to take them outside like that. My grandma lost her favorite cockatiel that way.

  8. Well... it's sort of a long story (regarding the certain someone everyone is asking about). But I will say this: it's long distance. *sigh* Thank goodness for modern technology, eh?

    I'm quite surprised nobody has mentioned how much the man himself looks like a bird. I think it's the hair.
