Whiskey (née Whiskas, named by her original owners for the cat food) was a budgie we'd adopted from friends of Heather's, who could no longer keep her due to a move. She was friendly and liked to sit with me at first. When we moved her into a cage with Grover, one of our other budgies, she bonded strongly to Grover and became a bit less friendly with us. She was a cute little white and blue bird.

She died yesterday due to complications from surgery after becoming eggbound.

I Have To Go Smash My Brains Now

Listening to (a Vancouver station I always listen to at work because they play just about everything) and "MmmBop" by Hanson comes on. I found myself bopping along and singing.

I must be put out of my misery now.

Lea Hernandez's house burns

from a post at Newsarama by Gail Simone:

Early this morning, the Texas home of award-winning writer/artist Lea Hernandez, my friend and co-creator of the graphic novel Killer Princesses, caught fire and burned. Half her house is now gone, and the rest is smoke-damaged. In addition, she lost at least six of her family’s beloved pets, two dogs and four cats. If you knew Lea, you’d know how devastating that is.
Lea is a talent artist and lover of small furry animals - for those of you who helped out when Savannah needed it, please consider sending some money their way. The family needs a place to stay and clothes and shoes and the like.

More info can be found at Lea's blog or at the Newsarama post, above. Her PayPal email is if you want to send directly. I plan to.
