meet the newest member of the geek menagerie, a pearl cockatiel. added to the existing critters, one chinchilla, and one beta fish. plus, the most ferocious of all, my girlfriend. all of us living happily in our two bedroom filing cabinet.
the bird is really cool, and they're suppossed to make great pets, although this one has been nothing but a total dick since we got him. i wanted to post a pic of a pissed off tiel ruthlessly attacking somebody's finger, because that would be a little closer to reality. but we're working with him, i think he just misses his buddies at the pet store and everything. at least, i hope that's it, and i just didn't get a bitchy birdie. i'm sure enough overdone sacchrine lovin' and he'll come around eventually.
"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
