The chicken is the star of the show :)

Used to have pet chickens when I was young – remember one day rescuing a crippled baby chick that we’d found lying on a garbage heap back in Togo.  Took her home, fed her yolk with an eyedropper, and kept her warm with a towel wrapped in a hot water bottle.  Though her feet always remained crippled, twisted so that her “toes” pointed inwards, she survived to have her own little chicks in time. 🙂 In fact, the chicken in the Youtube clip is almost identical to her in terms of color and size!

Still think chickens make better pets than rabbits!  Definitely don’t agree with Herzog’s saying that “…chickens are cannibalistic and horrible. What is most frightening about them is when you look directly into their eyes: what looks back at you is dullness, death and dullness.”  True, chickens do eat meat – but so do gulls, eagles, hawks, vultures, owls… you name it!  Chickens are cute >_<

    That’s a pretty cool chicken… although I’m not sure if the thing is dancing or its twitching to the bad music =p

    Lol, good point – trying to scratch its way through the ground to escape eh?

    How are you doing these days anyway? Been quite a while since I’ve heard from you!

    Yeah been busy with school and work so not much time to do stuff… We could meet for lunch one of these days.

    By the way, I finally decided to folllow in your footsteps and started a blog myself. Oh and I linked you =P

    And also, a friend of mine wants to buy a new mp3 player with video capabilities.. Any good recommendations? Shes looking into the Samsung P3 and I also recommended her the new Cowon that you showed me.

    Really! Well, let me know the link to your blog 🙂

    As for your friend, kudos on her for not immediately jumping on the iPod bandwagon :p
    But for recommendations… hmm… haven’t actually looked for an mp3 player recently myself. I do have a fairly cheap one that I got several years ago. Like it because it’s a player/USB drive in one, don’t need any cables so can just drag and drop music (and other files if I want) onto it. You can also check out if you haven’t already since I looked at there during the time I was considering the Cowon (which is more of a pocketable video player rather than a music player).

    Oh yeah, and let’s do lunch sometime again since it’s been so long 🙂

    Well I have a wonky schedule with small lunch gaps. My best bet would be if I went to lunch around 12:00 on Friday and then make it to class before 2:10? It doesnt have to be this week but other than that I have class from 1:40 on Tues/Thurs…

    As for why my commenting is not working is probably because Im still tweaking my template and such.. Also you may have to register on my site like I did with yours? Ill check it out
