@Solfest &LW: I got my African Gray! (paid and picking up next week...need the time to bird-proof my home and for the bird to look less like food). Naming it is a challenge now. We don't know if it's a "he" or a "she". It needs to be a little older before I'll bring it to a vet for gender identification (involves a blood test...). But it needs a name now. So I'm thinking maybe something unisex...like Solfest or Long & Wrong...but the latter is a mouthful and likely to pose a challenge for me, and the former is a capitalist and a banker...and we don't like capitalists and bankers...
Oh, LW, I'm going to be putting what I'm sure is going to be merely poultry to my felines right next to my very organized desk (til it starts to look more like a Psittaciformes than a Galliformes ) ie. the days that everything's aligned on my desk are numbered.
This is the part I LOVE the most: I'll be playing Austin's videos 24/7 to my 1-month old. I'm hoping that by next Christmas, it will know when and how to buy its own grains! Muahahahhahahahaha!!!!
But before that, I need a name. Desperately. Suggestions are most welcome. But they must come in fast because
