[Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I bought a parrotlet yesterday! We'd been thinking about it for a while, and then I saw a new batch of them at the pet store this weekend. On Sunday night, we talked about it and I researched them for a while, so when I went to bed I dreamed about getting one and naming him Pico. So, that is what we are calling him, because my dream picked it out, but also because it happens to be a metric prefix of some kind that basically means something really seriously small. And that he is. :) He is cute and shy and energetic, and Petrie seems vaguely interested in him but not particulary jealous (we're being careful to give equal amounts of attention, which helps I think).

Here he is!


Two more pictures, including his cute little blue butt, under the cut! )

Also, my fambily came to visit this weekend, and we did all sorts of fun things like Waterfire in Providence and swimming in the ocean at Blue Shutters beach. Raina is a good ocean-swimming buddy, because she's brave and hops right in. It was 64 degrees! But still fun. :) And Emma brought her friends, Kira and Mia, who were like 10 and 12 last time I saw them for any significant amount of time. They are now almost 15 and 17, I think, so that was weird and fun (even though Mia still only speaks to me in gestures, because she's shy. :))

If anyone's interested, there are pictures of pretty girls and ocean and Waterfire and other visity things over here.

And with that, you are reasonably caught up on my life in the past few days. I am off to nurse my training-a-parrotlet bite wounds and then play with him some more. ;)
