goose whisperer

Well, what on earth do I talk about today? My brain is never empty, but I dont know if theres much there to really talk about. (no real nuggets of wisdom)

There was the helicopter thing...theyre the weirdest pieces of machinery. I saw 4 fly by this morning, all in a row. They always remind me of the cat that I grew up with. Random, I know, but whenever I was at home and a helicopter would fly over, he would be the first to know it was coming....and get this crazy look on his face. Then he would run to a window and look out, then run around the room a few times being really paranoid, then as it flew away he would find another window and try to watch it leave. Then he would just sit there and stare at me...typical of Abel. A nice siamese cat.

anyway, I think of him, and I think of traffic. Not a good sign when you're approaching the highway and theres a chopper or two hovering above it. Either means a police chase ended right there, or theres something awfully interesting (and bad) going on with the traffic.

so these are the deepest thoughts of my day so far. By the way my pasta lunch is money. I found some pasta shaped like dollar signs....

almost forgot, if you like geese, check out this site:

my roommate and I both work at places that sometimes appear to be overrun by geese....so its a bit more amusing to us....

Is that article supposed to be funny or is it a "u-googlely" of sorts? I have geese around my work...and sometimes I have to wait 5 minutes for them to cross the road before I can leave my stinkin' parking lot.

Regardless...it was a very amusing article (in my opinion). I can't believe some guy gets paid to write stuff like that. But then again, apparently I'm getting paid to respond to your blog...maybe life is fair.

I HATE geese. I'll have to forward you an update email I sent out a year ago about geese and the tow path in NJ. Worse animals ever. I'd stop and flip my car for a rabbit - but if I saw a goose, and I don't care whether it's the adult or the "cute" little gooselings - I WILL aim. Do you know how many times I've been attacked by those things? They are God's joke on humanity, I swear.
