Frank Perdue. Died yesterday. The Pope died today. Terri Schiavo died earlier this week. Johnny Cochran died recently. Comedian Mitch Hedburg is dead. Lotta people dead.

Not much else happened today, except for a parakeet biting through one of my fingers.
Yes, you read that right.
A Parakeet:

Bit through my finger:

(Though it does look disturbingly similar, I mean, same finger, same wound placement, wrong hand, though.)
I was doing my cashier thing at Superpetz, when I saw something moving really fast out the corner of my eye. Because I work in a pet store, I followed my instinct to chase it down. It was the aforementioned parakeet, flapping it's wings to stay just above ground, while zipping along at a pretty good clip. It's a really good thing we trim the flight feathers, or we would constantly be living through the Great Parakeet Fiasco. Anyways, I cornered the parakeet by the dog leashes, when I did something extremely stupid.
I picked up the parakeet with my bare hands.
Now, the parakeet was entirely justified for chewing on me. I mean, think about it. He couldn't fly, he was cornered, and he was being grabbed by something fifty billion times it's size. Of course he's gonna fight.
Around a month ago, I bought a dozen guppies to feed my crayfish. I now have about forty guppies in the tank.
Turns out my mom's been feeding Pinchy pellets of brine shrimp, instead of letting him eat the guppies.

  • It's been a great week if you're playing the Dead Pool game. Who the heck is Mitch Hedberg, anyway? People talk as if he's some great comedian, but I never heard of the guy; then again, I don't watch a lot of TV or hit the comedy clubs.
    • Mitch Hedburg was the next generation Stephen Wright. He was a genius, at least to me. Here's some of his jokes:

      I haven't slept for ten days, because that would be too long.

      I wrote a letter to my dad - I wrote, "I really enjoy being here," but I accidentally wrote rarely instead of really. But I still wanted to use it so i crossed it out and wrote, "I rarely drive steamboats, dad - there's a lot of shit you don't know about me. Quit trying to act like I'm a steamboat operator." This letter took a harsh turn right away...

      ...and then at the end of the letter I like to write "P.S. - this is what part of the alphabet would look like if Q and R were eliminated.

      Sometimes I wave to people I don't know. It is very dangerous to wave to people you don't know, because what if they don't have a hand? They'll think you're cocky. "Look what I got motherfucker, this thing is useful...I'm gonna go pick something up"

      I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it.

      2-in-1 is a bullshit term, because 1 is not big enough to hold 2. That's why 2 was created.

      I use the word totally too much. I need to change it up and use a word that is different but has the same meaning. Mitch do you like submarine sandwhiches? All-encompassingly...

      An escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. You would never see an "Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order" sign, just "Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience."

      I don't have a girlfriend. But I do know a woman who'd be mad at me for saying that.

      I like cinnimon rolls, but I don't always have time to make a pan. That's why I wish they would sell cinnimon roll incense. After all I'd rather light a stick and have my roommate wake up with false hopes.
  • We had two cockatiels on when we were living on Guam...we being me and my family...Genius always bit me on the nose and Tenacity liked to scratch. I didn't name them...that was my parents doing.
  • The purpose of life...

    ... Is to die, unfortunately. By the way, where did you get a copy of those vids, I thought they were suspended....?
    • Re: The purpose of life...

      Well, one of the things I do is make sure my friends are really, you know, my friends. So, I tracked down the owner of Flipstar.tk and... shall we say, questioned him? So he gave me the vids from that site. Man, that kid ain't no fun to question... just showed him the knife an' he started babblin'... I was gonna get me a ear, too.

      Got the vids off of the site, believe it or not. Turns out they're (at least temporarily) back up, except for the McDaniels College run. Turns out he got a new webhost, or something...
