    ROTFL…”I AM A MERCIFUL GOD!” I read it in his voice and all. Also, that’s a good picture of the kitties! All sitting still and looking at the camera at the same time!

    I’m impressed. I am. I can handle a lot of things…but I would freak out over a bird in the house. We used to live in a house that had a bat problem in the attic and they periodically got in the house. O M G. I would run into the bedroom and hide until Randy rounded them up and showed them out.

    And once, my poor sister had a freaking SNAKE in her family room. She caught it with her sons grabby toy thingies and a plastic box. She got it out of her house, called me and sobbed her little eyes out. I told her that she was officially a badass because I would have just locked the doors and sold the house.

    Three cheers for your merciful god of a son! I’m sure that bird is very happy now. My cats were confronted with a bird and they ran in terror. Mighty hunters, I don’t think so.

    I think we are having a real live remake of “The Birds”. A week ago i was sitting on my sofa and I heard a strange noise in the chimney……a couple of minutes later I heard it again but louder and suddenly a large, black bird was in my fireplace (a Starling), then out flying all over my living and dining rooms. I freaked out but a very nice neighbor came and guided it out of the open door. I dived at me once and I was afraid it was going to hit my dogs head. I screamed (probably scared it), hit the floor with my dog in my arms (he is a miniature Poodle so not very big) and let my neighbor take care of things. Very strange things are happening now-a-days.

    I was always the one assigned to releasing wildlife back outdoors… birds, bats, snakes, mice, bugs… whatever. I grew up with a menagerie of critters (dogs, cats, birds, fish, rodents.. plus an assortment of wild things lol) whereas my ex never had a pet.

    We’ve had birds in the house–they were nesting in the chimney and…I don’t know, went the wrong way when they left the nest (“I wonder where this goes…?”) and when I was a kid we had a bat or two that freaked me the fuck out. Never a snake. Because I’m with Michelle–I’d walk out and put the house on the market. But I used to work for a vet, so I know what to do with birds. I don’t like them, wild or domesticated (they’re dirty), but I can deal with them.

    I’m scared to get out of bed without my glasses. Though a live bird in my apartment never occurred to me. I’m more of the killer behind the clear shower curtain type (they can only be clear).

    Also, I think your place is in some kind of magical magnetic vortex and it’s attracting all the birds. Did you do your smudging? Maybe you need a bird exorcist.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
