A post of pity and
First, there's the poor little birdie that hopped into my room (and then proceeded to shit all over it, but we'll forget about that for the sake of pity) - it had fallen out of its nest, and due to an unlucky lack of anything resembling a tail, was unable to fly. I called the animal ambulance service (they *charge* you for calls - talk about discouraging people from random acts of kindness...) and they came to pick the little fellow up.
Now then - as a cosmic reward, I noticed this awesome ad for a flat panel stereo CD player later that night. And it was cheap. And I just got my first pay from work. Yes.
