My grandmother is, by most reports, on her deathbed. I'm going to go and see her with my cousin the day after tomorrow, probably for the last time. Hmm.

I'm so sorry Gulliver. I hope you get to spend some special time with her.

Big hugs to C&S. I can't even imagine how that must feel to you and your family.


The painkillers I was taking yesterday for my back really hurt my stomach. I had very little sleep and have had a poor appetite today. I've been emotional as a result. A nurse at the drop-in centre gave my back a cursory check and told me it's my trapezius then prescribed me stronger co-codamol and told me not to weight train until I'm better.

Gulliver, I'm so sorry! I'm glad you will get to see her one last time. Showing your love will mean a lot, I'm sure.

I had a really great phone interview on Friday that I thought went amazingly well, and I feel so, so positive about. I just got an email rejection saying that they don't want to take my application any further. I REALLY wanted this job so, so much, and I'm really upset about this. I don't understand. Normally I can figure out why I don't get brought back in, but I really can't figure this one out. I thought it went so well. I'm really bummed. I just want to crawl into a hole.

8ball, yes I'm gonna try and see about adopting another one in the future for her little sister. I know a few people who run bird rescues so it shouldn't be too hard. But for now she seems to be doing great, you wouldn't think there was anything wrong with her! I'm very pleased she hasn't gotten worse and seems to really be enjoying herself and all the extra attention we give her. I've added a heating lamp to the corner of her cage because the one thing I have noticed is she gets cold much faster now. Poor old girl!

You can buy heated perched. I don't know how great they are though.

I've thought about that and it's probably worth trying. The reviews for the thermo perch are pretty good.

Warm birdy feet!

I love playing with Molly's feet. She likes to lay on her back in my hand and let me wiggle her cute little birdie toes. Conures are weird, but no weirder than their people, I suppose.

Do you have photos of your girls?

A friend asked me how I'd been doing since the last time we talked and I thought back over the last few days and realized I hadn't had a panic attack in several days (I've been having them pretty much every day for a while now?) and I was like, hey, sweet, I'm doing better. Three hours later I had a panic attack. Triggered by something I supposedly love doing. fork everything.

Oh what cuties! Lavawitch, we met a conure the other day in the park, and thanks to you and Molly, I could recognize that he was a conure, and got to get superclose. OMG PRETTY BIRD! Leela was in love.

CQ, I am so sorry.

Aw CQ. :[ Fork panic attacks.

My worst thing today is the same as yesterday. I woke up and my mom's still as dying as she was yesterday and while I am trying not to be a baby about it (she's not dead YET, she's not actively on her deathbed this moment) I am just totally forked up over it.

I moved across the country right after college to go to grad school and have been home only once since then. I haven't seen her in person in 4 years. This whole time I've been thinking, there's time for that. It's ok if I don't Skype with her every week or even every month because you know, she's not in great health but she's barely 50 and you know, there's time.

And now I am stuck here and the time is running out and I am realizing how badly I have squandered the time I had and oh god typing it out is making me fall into a bottomless black hole of awful so I'm just going to stop here.

Thank you PPK. It means a lot to me to just.. Hear that someone else cares right now. I can't really talk about this out loud at all yet, I feel like if i start talking, i'll start crying and if I start crying I'm not ever going to be able to stop.

I've just had several extremely rude emails from someone who wanted a voluntary group I am involved with to organise a film showing for them which has nothing to do with that group and which I said no to (they have never been involved in this group). The whole thing has made me upset and shaky as these emails have been very unpleasant and offensive in nature. Why do people behave like this?!

They are all so beautiful. I didn't realize that you have two green cheeks! Do they get along with the others or are they mean old' bullies? Molly tries to bully the macaw. It sometimes works!

Cut for serious animal violence
Spoiler: show
Somebody broke into my friend's house and killed his companion animals, a bird and a dog. Obviously this is a zillion times worse for him than for me, but I'm pretty shaken up right now just thinking about it. My friend lives too far way for me to do anything really, not that there's anything anybody could really do in this situation. I'm just so shocked and upset and horrified that any human being could do that. I can't even comprehend that anybody could be so horrible, I don't even have words for it.

That's awful, CQ. I can't even begin to fathom how anyone could do that.
