I watched 3 episodes of Fringe before I fell asleep (I just wanted to lay in bed and watch tv and have a night off from packing...so I did) and had crazy dreams all night long. Probably doesn't help that I ate a bunch of hummus right before I fell asleep as well.

They aren't great talkers. I believe some males will talk a bit, but I don't think it's super typical. They do chatter and chatter quite a bit.

I'll see if I can find a source for you.

Here is some forum chatter: http://www.tailfeathersnetwork.com/comm ... s-talking!!

I assume you are asking for your writing? Watching some YouTube videos might help.

Also, do you need a lovebird specifically, or just a small parrot? Perhaps a different species would work better?

Thanks so much! It is for my writing and I do sort of need lovebirds specifically for the symbolism and the whole story sort of ties into the work and purpose of my main character so I need to research their mating habits/vocalizations/behaviors/fidelity (if that's the right word--but you know--if they are loyal and tend to stay with one mate like my sister tells me cardinals do). But they don't have to outright speak but I did want to know whether they vocalize or not at all and what is the nature of their vocalizations (if it's comprehensible or just chatter). The writing's still in the early stages and I just don't want to develop any misinformation too far without knowing how they actually behave. It's good that the males talk too, because that's the one I need to talk (actually not even talk - just make sounds/vocalize) out of my fictional lovebirds. I hope to find some references to how lovebirds behave when they lose their mate. I'm figuring it's safe to assume that they get somehow depressed...

I guess what I specifically need to research is how the male behaves when separated from his mate...

Thanks for the link and I will watch youtube vids for them as well! <3

I am doing this thing where I track where I eat and the website tells you what nutrients and things you are getting enough of. Apparently I'm consistently really low on iron and potassium. So I looked at the foods that have high levels and I'm like, "I eat those foods!" But I guess I need to Popeye it up.

Ugh and ugh and ugh. I'm trying to plan for work and Pinterest is being wonky. I use it to plan (activities for second graders) because it's easier for me to have visual bookmarks I can access anywhere, then pull ideas from and put them in my work binder. Except now it has come time to put the ideas in the work binder and Pinterest is being dumb and not working. I was actually on top of things this month!


That's frustrating!

I recommend trying the app Evernote. I use it and LOVE it. It's a free download, and works on basically every platform ever (and has a web client). Some great things: it syncs across any devices that you have it installed on, so I have it on my home computer, my work computer, and my iPhone. So no matter which device I use to update, say, my unit plan, I will have it all on my devices. You can also install the "web clipper," which is my favorite thing for my recipe collection. You just click the icon and it copies any amount of a webpage into a note, including a link to the original source. So I usually clip recipes and save them into my recipe notebook. You can tag things, do notebooks and sub-notebooks, and you can even share notebooks with other people (my mom and my bf also have access to my recipe notebook). It's really useful and super easy to use. And again, free! And since it's an app, it doesn't go down, which is nice.

Ooh thanks! I just downloaded this on my phone, I think it's going to make my life a lot easier.

I'm using MyFitnessPal to track my food, and I noticed that some of the stuff that I know has iron in it (like my cereal that I eat every morning specifically because it's fortified with iron) is coming up with no iron on the app. So you might be having a similar problem. That's also a problem here because labels here generally seem to only list added vitamins/minerals, so if I were to input wholemeal bread (which is supposed to be high in iron), it would come up as having no iron in it because it isn't on the label.

Maybe if I put some dough under my shirt, they'll knead it for me! Actually, I had to go to the dentist 2 days in a row so I can't eat well.

This is gonna sound like a ridiculous problem, but I'm almost out of tea. I've found one (ONE!) kind of tea that I can drink without milk and sugar (and I tried a lot), and then every place in Edinburgh that sold it stopped selling it. I managed to bring 5 boxes back from the US (it's Celestial Seasonings), but that was over a month ago, and I think I have one box left (outside of the few bags I have at work). I looked it up online - Amazon US won't ship it to me for a reasonable price (if at all), and Amazon UK wants £5 for one box of 20! The cheapest I've found it is £3.32 for a box of 20. I might have to start looking into teas again and hope that I can find something suitable.

It looks like Celestial seasonings sells a 6 pack for $16 and they will provide you an estimate for international shipping if you contact them:
http://shop.celestialseasonings.com/Pol ... ation.aspx
The email is this: customerservice@worldpantry.com

Or you can set up the Scotland/US tea trading company where US based ppkers provide you your tea and you provide Scottish tea.

I have no jammy dodgers in the house. I need some to dip in my tea. So tempted to head out in my pjs to the shop.

I've been eating a lot of sweets lately and i just want more. i really want to bake pbj bars with chocolate chips. the recipe uses spelt flour and maple syrup and the jam is homemade, so it's basically ok, right? like, they're practically healthy what with the peanuts and whole grains, right????

Okay so something happened on NYE that's been bothering me. I didn't drink and I didn't make a big deal about it or anything, I never said a word about it, in fact. But after maybe my third or fourth refusal of the champagne one of my friends says something like "No offense, Fee, but you're not as much any more" There were probably three other people in the room and no one stuck up for me. No one said "that's not true" or anything like that. I kind of told the person that said that later on that hey, maybe I was more "fun" or whatever when we used to get wasted together - although I think that's probably just how you're remembering it - but I was more unhappy than you even know. And I left it at that because she was really drunk and I didn't want to waste my personal feelings on some drunk person who wasn't internalizing anything I was saying.

But now it's really bothering me that no one said anything. How can I hang out with people that wouldn't stick up for me? I was told later that after I left they told her she had been bullying me into drinking, but that doesn't make it better really.
