That’s Not What I Meant!

When I said “Put me on Cute Overload,” I didn’t mean “Put me on Cute Overload on your computer,” I meant “Put me on Cute Overload on your computer!”

Amanda E. gave us the bird, and so can you.

    That looks like my dear departed Jim, except Jim had more green and yes yellow. Damn, I miss that bird. Had we had computers when he was around, he would have been doing this.

  2. Fird Birfle says:

    Poor Mike, he sure has to spend time untangling people’s logic !!!

    (“Not that Mike…”; “not ON the computer but…”) 🙂

    “Who’s a Pretty Birdy???”

  3. Fird Birfle says:

    Disclaimer: The following question is mischevious.

    Skippymom, is yes yellow substantially different, from no yellow ????

    *pops myself one, good, since skippymom can’t presently reach me to do it*

  4. Uh oh, skippymom’s gonna getcha.

  5. Fird Birfle says:

    I have my left facial cheek ready for the impact, Rachael!!

  6. skippymom says:

    I meant to say, he had yes green and yes yellow, but his yellow was not as yes as his green. He did not have no yellow, there was yellow, yes, but the green was much more yes.

  7. I WANT a birdieeeeee…… [said in whiney voice with poutey face]

  8. That certainly clarifies it.

  9. skippymom says:

    Maybe I’ve been reading too much Joyce.

  10. Budgies!!!! Man, I loves them. Also CO, I *can* give you two boids… but do they have to perched on my laptop, they tend to make a mess wherever they are sitting :O …

  11. 260Oakley says:

    Ah, I see you’ve chosen Budgie as your perch engine.

  12. Theresa says:

    Skippymom, was Jim speckled? 😛

  13. Theresa says:

    Yes you have, yes/

  15. Fird Birfle says:

    skippymom: the crucial point here, is whether you remember how you felt on
    day when you ate that madeleine in Paris.

    Not that Marcel Proust, the Other Marcel Proust.

  16. As in, “Yes, we have no bananas?”

  17. Oakley, as always, for the win(g)!

  18. Fird Birfle says:

    (that came to my mind, also 🙂 )

  19. Lewis n' Clark says:

    I smell an infinite budgie post

  20. Existential question:

    Is it proper to say “look at the birdie” when taking a photograph of a budgie?

  21. bob drummond says:

    “They call me mellow yellow “…repeat

  22. bob drummond says:

    Good point , Gigi ! The bird might fly away !

  23. Cute Overload: Put a bird on it!

  24. BUDGIE! I love budgies 🙂 They’re so sweet:)

  27. Siobhan says:

    I need to get a picture of Darby O’Keet, Derbyan. Only he’s about three times as big as the budgie. Except he will stand on the keyboard as if he is saying, “Stop looking at the computer. Pay attention to ME!

  28. Siobhan says:

    Ditto yay! That show is hysterical when you live in Portland, as I do. You recognize ALL the inside jokes, and heartily agree with some of the things they poke fun at. Why joke about Portland? Carrie Brownstein is from here.
