The Red Shouldered Hawk

So, I just got home from work, which wasn't that much like work since I am in training for a new project, and we played taboo and name that song.. which was a blast btw, anyway, I just got home... On my walk to my doorway on the railing of the balcony was a Red-shouldered-hawk.

not this one, i didnt get a pic :( but it looked very similar!

At first I thought it was clutching an egg, so I stopped not sure if this animal would be aggressive or what (hey you ever seen birds the horror flick ... ya don't laugh at me), so I just kinda stood there, turned off my mp3 player (no i don't have an ipod  or worse an iphone, get over it), and just stared at it.  Guess what, it stared back, and then after about 2 minutes, which felt like an eternity, the bird seemingly flew away. So I continued on across the long balcony to my door and looked left before unlocking my door and there on the railing was the same hawk still clutching the dead thing, or so I thought. Then the bird lifts its leg and I see it wasn't holding the dead thing it was stuck on it. It kept lifting its leg as if to show me... I felt so bad, I didn't know what to do, and I know birds carry diseases and stuff so I was being a bit paranoid.

I am a big softy though, so I felt really bad, I still do... so I googled pictures until I found out what kind of bird it was, and then searched the net for what to do, and didn't find too much. So I called the local wildlife shelter and reported what I had seen and told them I wasn't sure if I needed to report it or what.  The lady was a bit short like talking to a Financial Services Rep for a Cellular Company about a late bill or something (not that I would know what that is like or anything hehe) but I gave her as much details as I could, but when I checked outside again the bird was gone :(  She said they couldn't do anything unless I could find it and then call them to get it.  So I said I would if I saw it again.  I looked around the complex but no such luck *pouty lip* I hope the bird is okay and I hope you all send your best wishes to it too :D I am going to call it Little red on account of its shoulders, and remember it fondly :D

That reminds me of a time when I was a kid though, and I lived in the desert because apparently my family was homeless, even though I didn't really know that at the time. We lived in a bus converted into an RV with one bedroom and a small closet size shower/toilet ( you cant even call it a room), and a table that converted to a kind of bed.

Anyway down the trail from us was another ah campsite if you will, and this guy lived there who had a big dog. I mean a huge bullmastiff (or bull massive as I called them at the age of 8)...

no not that cute lil guy... awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

ya a bit more like this guy... they are giants'... omg he is taller there than I am now... legs same length I think lmao!!!!

Anyway so My father made friends with the guy and was over there with my brothers, and I was alone at our camp... so I was bored and decided to go over there... I knew about the dog, and have always been good with animals, but this dog was huge and usually was kept on a short leash as he tended to be an aggressive dog I guess.

So, I am walking along the trail staring at the ground as I tended to do in my shy days, when I looked up and saw this massive beast just sitting there like....

like that guy ^ up there....

and I just stopped about ten feet from him, struck with the kind of fear only an 8yr girl can have... and tried to stay calm.   I was eight though, and curious, and thought somehow I was special or something I am sure... so when the dog didn't do anything but stare at me I decided to get on his level (not physically the thing was as tall as me when sitting) and so I sat down also.  Then I sort of just started talking, I don't remember what I said, just that it was probably a bunch of nonsense in very gentle tones.

Wouldn't you know it.... my heart beat raced like a jackhammer on crack as that dog stalked right up to me and licked my face with a tongue nearly as wide as my head! I wrapped my arms around him and we were best friends for that moment... awww I know right... Well I stood up and we walked back to his camp together and you bet the adults about shat themselves! It was glorious and I never forgot it... as you can see :)

Well thats enough babbling for now, have a fun night ya'll!

Game Night Babble

So we are doing a game night tonight with some friends, but my guy is being a butt-head as he doesn't want anyone over. Well I want to do some improv and have fun, I did work all week as you may know. well I was in training which is why I thought of the improv because we had to do a skit for a commercial about our product, which was fun.

This made me think we should get an improv group together and do like a whose line is it anyway thing in the park and accept tips only. Could be fun. Which reminds me I loved that show.

Oh and I have been watching the A-Team series from the beginning, love that show...

which brings me back to class we were all talking about old shows like Sanford & son, saved by the bell, blossom, Punky Brewster, gidget, and so so many others... it made me think there should be a chat room for just talking about stuff from "back in the day"

which is funny because I used to think I would never use that term, "back in the day" but I do all the time now.

Oh and so I watched the Glee Rocky Horror Picture Show episode, and it was a blast, loved it. Always loved the Time Warp Song the best!

And you know what it would be fun to be part of the Geek Squad at Best Buy!

By the way, My little net-book is still holding out, thats what I'm on...

and Verizon got the Ipad right, and so I learned about these tablet devices, and I just dont think there would ever be a reason to spend $600-$800 on such a thing... It just baffles me.

Speaking of Baffling things, I know I haven't babbled in a while, sorry I got moved into my new place, and have just been busy with work and everything.

But now that things are in order I may come back on more often.

Anyhow I watched all three Pirates of the Caribbean movies last night and found out there is a fourth one coming, so looking forward to that!

Anyway have a blast all you babbling fools!
