Sometimes I feel like my parrots are making fun of me.

Earlier today:

Coco: How do birds sing, Draco?

Draco:...

Coco: BIRDS!

Draco: *imitates the birds outside*

Coco: Veeeeeeeeeeerrrrrryyyyyy goooooooooooood!!!

Draco: Hahaha!


I do praise them with enthusiasm, because that's what encourages them to perform tricks, but I don't sound quite like that!


Also: I am not going to sign up for emofest, I am not going to sign up for emofest, I am not going to sign up for emofest...

Wonder how much longer I can resist...

Aw, birdies! What kind do you have? One of my friend's has a pair of lesbian budgies; they're adorable. :)

I have African Grey Parrots, like the one in the icon. You can find videos of mine under the pet tag, if you're interested.


And, um, lesbian budgies?

Hee, it's a long story. You ready?

I was on the phone with my best friend and she has two budgies, Sassy [short for Sassafras] and Madge. They were chirping in the background, and suddenly my friend bursts out "SASSY, STOP KISSING MADGE!" Of course I was all WTF? and my friend was like, "Dude, I think Sassy is a lesbian because she keeps kissing Madge and she's doing all these mating behaviors." So I was like "Weird, whatever." Then I went over to her house a few weeks later and the budgies were all lovey dovey and I asked her what happened. Apparently, Sassy converted Madge to the lesbian budgie lifestyle and they lived happily ever after. ;)

That's funny. I have read about parrots having homosexual relationships, so I guess it happens.

Birdies! :D Oooh, oooh, are they African Greys? Your icon is leading me to believe that they may be African Greys.... *bounces excitedly*

WE SHOULD DO EMOFEST TOGETHER! Because I'm really tempted to do it, but I don't know if I can do angst on command--but that makes me want to do it more, because it feels like I'd be stretching myself, you know? :D
...*tempt tempt tempt*

I'll tell you what... if you do it, I'll do it...

Hee, I signed up! I was gonna surreptitiously post a link to my comment, but they're all screened 'cause it's anonymous XD So you'll just have to take my word for it *g*

I'd love to get an African Grey once I graduate and get my own place...do you know if they do okay in apartments and such? I know they need lots of time out of their cages...

What are you talking about... it's not screened. Anyway, I'm gonna go sign up once I'm done with homework.

I only lock mine up when I go out, but typically they need at least a few hours out of the cage daily. The only problem I see with keeping one in an apartment, considering there is enough space, is that parrots scream. Greys aren't very noisy parrots, but they do have occasional fits. The neighbors might not like that.

o.O Clearly I am an idiot. Idk why I thought it was -_-;; But YAY :D

Uh oh...yeah, I can see how the screaming would be an issue *sigh* Maybe if I ever manage to buy a house or something XD

Your parrots are hysterical. You need to keep a camera pointed at them all day long, and just edit out the boring bits. I'd love to have actually SEEN that exchange. :)

Yeah, I'm never able to get the good parts on camera :(
