We returned from eating copious amounts of Chinese last night to find that drown_not_wave had been by to drop off a card, flowers and wine. Just passing by -- since she lives a minimum of an hour's drive away, hm ;) Much appreciated, anyhow.

Before we went out, we watched this week's Dr Who, which was at one point interrupted by a clatter against the living room window. Further investigation found a rather panic-stricken baby bird clinging to the window (we have leaded windows so they are not completely smooth) before dropping a few inches to the window sill. I suspect that it was a robin, since I believe there's a pair nesting in the bush next to the window. We think it had just decided to try its wings a smidge too soon -- whether it'll be able to get back in the nest, I'm not sure, but it looked like it was very close to being able to fly... hopefully, if it did wind up on the ground, it'll be behind the spiky bush where the neighbourhood cats would have trouble getting to it. (And there aren't that many of them anyhow, unlike where we used to live where the cat density was approximately 1/house in the immediate area)

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

    Merry winter-festival-of-your-choice, all of you!

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
