9333 - Tuesday

Tomorrow I go to the doctor for a review and another epidural. Hopefully I'll get a lead on something for my nagging cough.

Went to go see the Hulk movie (I'm sleeping in until 7:30 tomorrow, so I can pull it off) - It was a whole lot better than what I was expecting. BHK liked the movie more than Iron Man, and I am certainly more sympathetic to Banner - I feel that Iron Man was better acted and had better effects, but Hulk was more enjoyable overall - I didn't mind the CGI Hulk and Abomination at all.

Watched the 2nd episode of Middleman, and it was a lot smoother than the pilot. I'm enjoying it so far.

Nasty thought, resulting from last weekend's dining out - "Crab dip stuffed crust pizza". I bet it would make a mint along the Chesapeake... sprinkle a little old bay seasoning on the pie, and I suspect that you've got Maryland gold.... and I've got a tummy ache just thinking about it.

Joke of the day -

Q.What's Brown and rhymes with Snoop?

A: Dr. Dre.

Well, BHK thought it was funny, dear journal.

Forget about the joke and just gaze into the eyes of telekinetic monkey. Ooeeeooooeeeoo! I hope he uses his powers for good!




Got this in the mail at work - That's pretty cool of the building to do for the critters.

The saying is something like: "Don't ever come between a Mother and her babies"
 
Well, here in Calverton, it's proving to be true.  There is a Mother 
Eastern Kingbird nesting in one of the trees in the back parking lot (*)
that has felt a little threatened by some of our staff members. She's
even attacked a few staff members. (thankfully, they are OK)
 
(*)She's in one of the trees at the right of the rear entrance in the
first island that is parallel with the building. Currently, 8:45 a.m,
there is a black truck parked near "her" tree.
 
PLEASE DO YOUR BEST TO STAY AWAY FROM THAT TREE AREA AND LET HER HATCH
HER BABIES.  WE DON'T WANT ANYONE HURT BY HER PROTECTIVE INSTINCT AND WE
DEFINITELY DON'T WANT HER TO ABANDON HER NEST.
 
Kate Flint did some research and found out some facts about Eastern
Kingbirds:
 
*   The Eastern Kingbird is highly aggressive toward nest predators
and larger birds. Hawks and crows are attacked regularly. A
kingbird was observed to knock a Blue Jay out of a tree and cause it to
hide under bush to escape the attack. 
 
*   During the summer the Eastern Kingbird eats mostly flying
insects and maintains a breeding territory that it defends vigorously
against all other kingbirds. In the winter along the Amazon, however, it
has a completely different lifestyle: it travels in flocks and eats
fruit. 
 
*   Parent Eastern Kingbirds feed their young for about seven weeks.
Because of this relatively long period of dependence, a pair generally
raises only one brood of young per nesting season.
