I'm not taking it anymore

It's Spring! That means +20 degree temperatures (I'm loving Celsius) and the sun staying out until 7:30 (instead of 3:30). The one downside of this is that the courtyard between my apartment building and the next one has become a giant bird sanctuary again. The chorus of chirps and other loud, high-pitched, alarm-like noises usually begins when the sun comes up around 5:00 AM and continues to shriek at me until whenever I can't take it any more and get up (usually around6:30). However, I'm not taking this lying down anymore.

Last year when I was bitten by some dogs, my family sent me a package that included, among other things, the movie "Cujo," doggie treats, and a spray bottle with instructions to fill half with bleach and half with water and to "aim for the eyes." I thought that was cruel, but the bottle did get some use last Saturday morning when I snapped at 5 AM and started spraying water at them from my balcony until they flew away. Good times. Not only was it fun, but it worked! They haven't come back since. I win! Also, David and Amy are awesome because they sent me really greatpackages. They win too!

Life is awesome

London was GREAT! I had an amazing time. Lots to do in the next fewweeks, though, including a charity Softball tournament and an HIV seminar...then Summer and TONS of camps. So, I'm busy. Happy, but busy. Also, I'm really proud of the Blazers and how they played this year. With Oden back, we're making the playoffs next season! Oh, and Hillary Clinton is hurting America. Hugs!
