RIP Stonewall

On Sunday Stonewall started having seizures.  We brought him to the vet and got him anti-seizure medication, but it wasn’t enough.  He died during the night. My poor buddy.  We will really miss him.  He was such a happy little guy with such a loud voice.  He loved to get into things and during the […]

Bird Update

I work from home in a teeny tiny office off of our television room.  The birds live in there too, which means I spent more time with them now than I ever did before. For about half the year they are good companions.  Starting about a week ago, their nestiness set in and it has […]

Working at Home with Cockatiels

I share an office with the cockatiels.  Most of the time it’s great because I have company during the day. For the past few weeks, the cockatiels have been ridiculously nesty, though.  Trevor and Stonewall will fly to the floor to try and find a place to nest.  Conner will join them later if I […]

Working from Home

I switched jobs last month.  The previous job wasn’t working well.  I was required to bill 1800 hours a year, which meant logging about 160 hours a month.  That doesn’t sound like a lot, until you realize that patent prosecutors can’t bill for a lot of the time they’re in the office doing administrative tasks, […]

Peas

Conner lucked out tonight because we made his favorite dish: peas.  He runs to the dish when he sees me bring it.   Stonewall ate some peas too.  I thought Trevor was eating them as well, but then he started licking the container, so he might be a little unclear on the concept.   Stonewall […]

The Guys

The cockatiels had a great time hanging out with me while I studied today.  If no one is in the room they will hang out at the back of the cage where it’s dark.  If I’m in the room they get a little closer.  It looks uncomfortable.  Usually Conner and Trevor are together and then […]

Cockatiels

I flew to the Patent Office in Virginia this week for in-person interviews with patent examiners.  The nearby Whole Foods had satsuma oranges so I was okay.  On the way home, I got stuck in Denver overnight, so I spent a total of three nights away from home. I was worried that the trip would […]

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!  We did nothing except sit around, except for a brief stint on the elliptical and a walk.  Also, we tried to tire Teddy Roosevelt out.  He gets tired quickly if you lift him up in the air by the toy.   Teddy loves cheese so he got camembert for Christmas.  This is the […]

Cross-Stitch Audrey

I finally finished making a cross-stitch Audrey for Jon.  I made one for my office two years ago.  It has a really nice location right now.  I point to it anytime a new employee starts to chat with me about my interests.  Birds.  Bam!   This is one of my favorite pictures because it’s Audrey […]

Studying with the Birds

I spend the weekend working on homework assignments and studying for my final next week. As a result, this was an awesome weekend for the birds. They love it when I hang out with them.     Conner was being a tattletale, though.  I’m not sure why but when Stonewall would go and do nesty […]
