Find joy wherever the wind blows


Bug loves, loves, loves peanuts.  The sound of the jar being opened elicits excited chirps and happy dances followed by frantic chirps and pacing if a peanut does not materialize quickly enough.  If Bug is out of her cage, do not expect to open a peanut jar in peace. This is something she and Maya ... [Read more]

. . . and kicking, and kicking. Working too much. Doing too much.Bug is not pleased.Looking forward to a week in Mexico City.Bug will be even less pleased. Did you miss Mac's profile in the Washington Post?

The day I took the food photos was a particularly gray January day here in the district.  I stuck Bug's food in the window to document it (left).

The internet forum equivalent of well wishes is ... [Read more]

I think it might be time to rebrand the blog. I've struggled with the Why blog? question off and on - burning desire to post cute pictures? share my witty remarks? express outrage? habit? When I first started this, I had just adopted Little Miss Cuteness (a.k.a. Bug, left) and was an avid reader of ... [Read more]

This picture: of Bug chasing my pen and generally being adorable is the #2 search result for "parrotlet" on Yahoo Image Search. Cool. Her rank isn't moving up at all on the Google image search though. What's up with that? If you search for "parrotlet, Bug", she's all over the place, but that seems like ... [Read more]

This photo of Bug won her a gift certificate in a wet bird contest to and now we will buy her this: Whoa.
