matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Lupin/Tonks)
Been a while since I gave you all an update on my efforts to catch Pip the loose parakeet who's been hanging around our neighborhoood. I've seen him a number of times when I was heading out to or coming home from work, and each time he seems to get a kick out of letting me get juuuust right close to him before he flutters up into our neighbor's big oak tree where he sits tweedling at me, as if to say, "Tee-hee! You can't catch me!". He seems to be getting used to being wild and free: he's balancing better on telephone lines and he's started bossing around the sparrows and the blackbirds that frequent our neighbor's bird-feeder.

I don't know if this applies to Massachusetts, but I learned something interesting from watching "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill" (I'm gonna try getting the book from the library tonight; the movie was delightful!): apparantly, parrots do pretty good out on their own, despite temperature fluctuations. Their main concerns are finding food and avoiding predators. Pip's found a steady food source, so he's doing pretty well

Heh, I made up for last time when I hardly got anything...

--"Don't Know Much About Mythology?" by Kenneth C. Davis, the guy who does the "Don't Know Much About..." quiz-thingy in the magazine section of the newspaper. I've only skimmed through it, but he seems to cover a *LOT* of stuff, beyond Greek and Roman mythology.

--"D'Aulaire's Book of Norse Myths" I grew up reading their "Book of Greek Myths" and utterly loved it, so I thought I'd take a look at this one.

--Two DVDs, both anime: "Akira" and "Cowboy Bebop: the Movie" (since for some strange reason the local Blockbuster doesn't have either in their Animation section...).
