He pecks at the window all day. What does he want? A bird flinging himself against a window ten hours a day does appear to to be trying to get inside. Go outside and look at the window from the bird&rsquo;s perspective, and you&rsquo;ll see your own reflection. The bird is met with a rival who answers his every parry with a thrust, who sings at the same time he does --the height of avian rudeness!

I&rsquo;m put on draconian sleep schedules that persist for a week at a time. One involves waking up at 2:57 AM, and falling back to sleep around five, for that refreshing extra half-hour before the alarm goes off. I&rsquo;m a little bleary the next morning, not much good for anything.</p> Sun, 26 Jun 2011 14:50:31 +0000 Julie Zickefoose 7299 at http://wyso.org Killing Telephones Is My Car Gay? http://wyso.org/post/my-car-gay <p><em>Across the US, gas and oil prices are going up, and people may paying a little more attention to their traveling habits.&nbsp; And so commentator Julie Zickefoose is forced to ask a completely unrelated question: is my car gay?</em></p> Sun, 01 May 2011 15:47:00 +0000 Julie Zickefoose 8645 at http://wyso.org Is My Car Gay?
