It's 48 degrees here today and simply wonderful. I've opened the doors and blinds to let the light shine in and am piddling around the house, cleaning a little here, blasting some new music (we'll get to that) there, and just generally entertaining the hell out of myself. I've even "danced it out" a couple times.

While I was cleaning up the kitchen and making a pot of chili I noticed my buns had gotten moldy. [Please, take the jokes. Just don't say I never gave you anything, ingrate.]
So there I was, holding them over the garbage can, about to let go, when I asked myself whether or not there was another use for them and I thought of birds and wondered how long it would take them to notice if I threw this bread in the yard. That was at one o'clock. So far, no action.
The bread was out there maybe ten minutes when I started to wonder if they weren't noticing because it was in the snow. You know, like they couldn't smell it or something? So I threw another bun on the sidewalk, out of the snow.
So yeah. I am now running two different experiments as I clean house:
1. How long will it take birds to notice bread in the snow?
2. Will they notice the bread on the sidewalk first?
I'll update when there is news.
While we wait for the results of my vurrry scientific experiments, check out the new music I got today. Apparently my hip-hop phase is back.
TI and Rihanna, Live Your Life
Kanye West, Love Lockdown and Heartless (I will not apologize. Yes, he's a tool but I like the songs. Shut it.)
Britany Spears, Womanizer
Katy Perry, Hot N Cold
Beyonce, Single Ladies
MIA, Paper Planes
2:12 PM: Still no action. Stupid birds. I can hear them tweeting away at the front of the house but zero action in the back. [I'm lobbing softballs today, monkeys.]
2:28 PM: I've got birds! I can't get a picture because every time I walk up to the back door they fly away so you're just going to have to trust me. It took them an hour and 28 minutes. Not bad, I suppose.
I didn't see the first one arrive and they've eaten off pieces in both places so I still have no idea if placement matters. Science is fun!
Alright, I'm outta here. I have to go make sure my Hello Kitty pajamas are clean for Beth's birthday party. I was going to try to replicate this but I can't find any funny unders in my closet.
We're watching you.
