California So far....
I am going to have a lot of fun pictures to post after I get back, but I wanted to write something this morning, and Kitty has them all, and the little darling is still fast asleep. They are all here on her computer, but nipping in and grabbing them seems a bit cheeky to me. So we wait.
Kitty asked me last week why the Birdchick never posted here, and I had to say , umm...Well, we don't talk about BIRDS, and I am sure if we did something on birds her bird radar would kick in and she would be over here like a shot.
I wish I had a bird book and binoculars, as (this being a Tree House and all) there are a LOT of birds and I have no idea what they are. I know there is a hummingbird nest in the front yard, and a really cool orange bird that is not an oriole.
And I can HEAR an amazing number of birds ALL the time. They do not sleep. (Much like LA) they go all night, 1, 2, 3, 4 in the morning, they are up and at it. Then around dawn, they really go wild. I do wonder who it is chirping all night.
(and what they are saying. (Hey! My grandfather x 10 was the third bird from the left in the Hitchcock movie! I am SO in line for a part in the new Dawn of the Birds 4!!!!!! My agent is VERY excited!!! That's the Buzz!)
And the other Birds reply...
(SHUT UP! You're a bird! Buzz is for Bees!)
Anyway, LOTS of Birds out here.
Saw WANTED yesterday and loved it, as did Malena. Not so much anyone else we, and we loved it because it was Angelina in Leather shooting with guns at bad guys. If you want that, you will love it. If you are interested in believable, plot, pace, script and all that non-sense, you might want to wait.
I found the best necklace EVER at the Flea Market (WHY do they call them that??) The lady sold it for a price that was perhaps, a quarter of what it was worth, which made me feel a little bad, but when it comes to vintage amethysts, all's fair in love and war.
The Karaoke last night was loads of fun, like I had never seen before (Ok, so I had never BEEN to one before) LOTS of fine 80's music and I met SO many people, all so nice. Drew, home for a few days with Miss Kitty, did Whiskey in the Jar for me!! And he did some Duran Duran, a little Billy Joel (being as how he is out with him right now, he has had plenty of practice) and a couple of others my brain is not letting me remember) and did them REALLY well!
I have to say tho, (Sorry Drew) the highpoint of the evening was Malena singing "Something to Talk About" for me!!!!! GODS! That girl can SING, and MOVE!!!!!!! I wish she had dressed up a little more, same old boring skin tight jeans, heels and leather corset, but I guess it worked. (Hee-he, yeah it worked ) Especially when you can sing and dance like that. The place went nuts! Bonnie Raitt would have been proud. I sure was.
Today Malena and I are hoping for a little sit on the beach and talk all afternoon, before she takes me, sadly, off to the airport.
For now, I am going to try and figure out the mysteries of actually Making Coffee. It can't be that hard, lots of people do it.
Love and Sunshine,
