list of surprising things today

  • A young guy in a ball cap and sweatshirt and jeans, very typical OC college student type, showed up on the patio and sat outside. He produced from somewhere a bird, a small green one, something similar to a parakeet. Odessa, who was sitting next to me inside, pointed him out. We watched him talk to the bird, who wandered around on the table in front of him and periodically sat on his hand or let him skritch it. He was smoking but keeping the cigarette away from the bird. They appeared to be friends. And then later he walked off towards Wendy's and we couldn't see the bird any more. Where'd the bird go? He didn't look like someone who'd have a bird! What is going on?

  • Jared sent me a Tori Amos video. Yes, that Jared.

  • The apostrophe in "McDonald's" temporarily broke the large, professional website of the company for whom I work.

  • I read a whole book today. It's been a while since I did that.
