This means I can totally skype now.
My computer was constantly freezing, wouldn’t stream a video properly and would show me the blue screen of death at least 50% of the time I tried to wake it up. So I bit the bullet and decided not to wait until I got back from my trip to buy a computer at the same time as every other new UT student and bought one today. 13” Macbook Pro. Aw yeah. So far, it is an incredible change...

Wtf, justice system? Wtf.
He’s clearly uncomfortable and sometimes yells about it. So I’m going to clean the cage and all the perches and get some new ones - a real branch one and a cotton rope one that’ll be soft on his feet. Then I’ll call the avian vet and see if they have a poor people with cheap pets discount, ‘cause I think he might have a parasite that causes scaly feet. I...
I think Keeter's feet are messed up.
He keeps fidgeting, and they are bigger and scabbier looking than Rambo’s. It’s really weird. I’m kind of worried, but I can’t really afford to take him to the vet, and I’m not sure how worth it it is for a $17 bird who is so little there really isn’t much medicine can do for him other than freak him out and traumatize him. Maybe that’s cold.
This hellish, never ending week is finally over!
And today sucked at work. Surprise! But then afterword, after some pretend hemming and hawing and acting all put upon at my request, I got Mike to give me a fantastic back massage, and later we went swimming in Lake Austin before he had to go to work. And we both have the next two days/nights off, so this weekend is looking pretty good. (Yes, I know it’s Wednesday. Welcome to my life.)
Ups and downs.
As my job gets worse (or at least, as I get more and more fed up), my relationship gets more awesome. I don’t think they’re related, I think it’s just a temporal coincidence. But I am totally head over heels right now. I just can’t believe how it keeps getting better. And then I go to work and my job is still shitty and makes me frustrated, angry, and crazy, more and...
All the trees are dying.
Will it ever rain in Texas?
Things just keep getting better outside of work, with both a hilarious incident a few days ago and a beautiful evening (best evening ever?) last night, neither of which will ever be forgotten. Meanwhile, I’m finding my job more and more intolerable. Between getting screwed by the scheduling yet again and dealing with horrible customers, I have to keep reminding myself that by sticking it...

Keeter keeps falling off the cage because he tries to fly when Rambo flies but he can’t because the pet store clipped his wings. He’s going to have a long few months of getting picked up off the floor against his will before he molts.
