And a "O_o" was had.  
Last week, I saw a pigeon cross the street. This may not seem like an amazing event to most of you, but the fowl was truly one remarkable (and maybe even non-dumb) bird. It never once flapped its wings, panicked, or went around in circles. The damn thing actually used the crosswalk, hoofed it across in a straight line, and calmly went about its pigeon pecking business on the other side of the road. It was a true pedestrian pigeon.

Though my Midwestern ways may always smell of corn, soy, and Nascar to those who were born and raised in large cities on the coasts, I maintain that with training, it is possible for even me to actually seem chic on occasion. And so it was that on Tuesday, I managed to eat noodles with chopsticks, without embarrassing myself or creating a large mess.

I have decided to declare the remaining afternoon "Anne, Clean Up Your Room Day." It has gotten to the point where I have to become a meteorologist to safely navigate this 13x13 square, by forecasting the appearance of miniature Bermuda Triangles and creating damage estimates for the aftereffects of Hurricane Mess.

My friend who lives in New York says they have lots of pigeons like that there. She said some of them even ride the subway like they're regular passengers. ^^

This pigeon is clearly up to no good. I bet he's a damn dirty commie spy.

We like to call them "city chickens". They were a constant source of entertainment on nice days on breaks outside

Maybe if you clean your room...
you will find the easymac?!!? How is the job hunt going? Are you going to Otakon? If so, let me know and I might tag along, if you'll have me. I need to make new costumes though, I sold Faye on Ebay and I don't think Kairi fits anymore, so I will probably sell that too. Also then I can bring your hat, i don't know how well it will mail.

Hey :)
I need to have a "Kate, clean up your room day" but ive been so tired lately. We are going into a crunch soon at work, bleh.

I think you should seek out this pigeon and train it to do useful things...like...um...well im sure there's something besides delivering messages...and other stuff...

Miss you!
