yesterday i met (up close) my new bff in flight - Fontaigne...
never realized how freaking smart these birds are till we met. when she comes out of her cage, she goes over to the cabinets and starts opening them using the knobs (looking for a treat). she has a broken wing that cannot be repaired, so she'll be around for life, pecking at anything knee height or lower. actually, just above the knee. nurse!
in other news, recent news, like just now news - it seems Fontaigne may be smarter than me! I accidentally set my phone timer to 10 hours instead of 10 minutes! not horrible if you're baking a cake - i mean, you'll smell it burn. but when you're coloring your grey roots for an incredibly important job interview in the morning, whew, i gotta say this about tops it all. add in the near hurricane winds predicted for the day, and this may be a competition best-effort to get there. darn it with the timer thing...what the heck anyway?? i only say "darn" in case my new employer googles my name and reads this blog post. but i really had other more sinful words on the very tip of my tongue. and for real, guys. haven't i had enough already with these little tricks?
so go here and meet my other new friend - not in flight. well, maybe in flight - her work is just gorjus. this is a very small peek, and i must say that what i see in her studio makes me weep. why do you think i'm working?? to buy her artwork. and AND to pay for my *drum roll* studio! more later....cross your fingers please
