Choose love.

My dear husband,

Thank you for this beautiful website. Thank you for putting up with me when I’m stressed out. Thank you for being the first one to make me laugh when even a smile doesn’t feel possible.

Eight months ago, we stood by the pond in front of our friends and family and promised to love and care for one another. What a beautiful gift that has been, and I am so proud to call you my husband.

I love you on Valentine’s day, but more importantly I love you every day of the year.

Your wife

There Is No Spoon

Not much of an update today. I’ve been trying to get Raelene to blog a little, but so far she’s been far too busy too. If you would like to hear from my better half, post a comment saying so. ~smiles~

Baby the Senegal has gone home, so the apartment is a whole lot quieter now. Well, somewhat quieter. Okay, not quiet at all. It turns out Kiwi the Indian Ringneck is a bit of a screamer as well. She’s also a bit of a whistler. For five years I kept the ubiquitous parrot “wolf whistle” out of Zoe’s vocabulary, and Kiwi wasn’t home an hour before Zoe picked it up. Aww well, such is life. If you’re not sure what a wolf whistle is, think of what a sailor or construction worker might sound like as a pretty lady walks by.

My job continues to go well, although Raelene is having some problems at hers. Send her lots of love and encouragement, she needs it right now. ~smiles~ Life at home is pretty quiet. Raelene and I have really gotten into the TV show Heroes, and it’s making me want to dig my Aberrant RPG books out of storage. Not that I’m ever going to play or run Aberrant, but it might be fun to look through and read the books again.

Oh, I almost forgot! I’m an “uncle” once again! My groomsman Will and his wife Carolyn had a baby! Molly Jean was born February 7th, and weighted in at a whopping 10 pounds. Congratulations to Will and Carolyn!


It’s Friday! Yea! And better yet, our vanity website is coming along very nicely. Another yea! The folks at Dreamhost are fantastic. I cannot recommend them enough.

And now for the update…

We have a new Mickaboo foster parrot, Kiwi the Indian Ringneck. She’s bright green and super sweet. We should hopefully have some pictures of her in the gallery section very soon. We’ve also been fid-sitting a Senegal named Baby. We were a bit worried at first because Baby has the reputation of a biter, but we didn’t see any of that. In fact, he’s one of the sweetest birds I’ve ever met! I’m sure the reputation is deserved, but for some reason around us he’s a little love bug.
