We're looking after Freddie who is a bird that the ex's parents own, and I jokingly said I would like him to stay even after their return from holiday, and I think I have actually got stuck with him to look after until I go. Something to keep me company, little cute blue bastard he is.


I apologise for writing this on a cat lovers forum, I know you all hate me now. YEAH I SAID I HAVE A BIRD.

Bird's are considerably smarter than Dogs or Cats, too bad they shit everywhere.

Nah I would prefer to have a cat or a dog, but we're not allowed them in this flat. Just as well really, don't think I could deal with leaving a cat or a dog behind. Perhaps for the future, id call it Satan.

Glad you have a bird ! Does it swear like a trooper and if not, have you time to teach it ? That would be a great farewell present.

It's not coming with me. I think Freddie is a bit on the old side to teach new words. Lived it's entire life listening to German so his mind is probably fried.

I showed someone who has only known me a few weeks a picture of me from last Jan and they actually couldn't believe it was me :)

I can tell you for a fact that Dresden was rebuilt better than fucking Mannheim was....or Coventry for that matter.

One of the first things that came up when I Google Imaged Coventry was that woman that put a cat in the bin. :lol:

My dad was born there, yet I've never been. It is apparent I'm not missing anything though...
