Midnight Breed Feeder update #3

Now a snowstorm is raging outside.
How long will you cling to your stupid pride?

I get it, finding the neighbor’s feeder empty was a heartbreak. Somehow you think it was your fault, and you have toiled to armor yourself against everything and everyone ever since.

You think you don’t deserve the joy of an endless source of seeds. And maybe a little part of you is afraid to have that and lose it again. But you do deserve those seeds. You did nothing wrong--you couldn't have prevented the neighbor's ignorance and thoughtlessness on this matter. Honestly, do you think you can control everything that happens in this world? Please know that I will keep my birdfeeder full!

Yes, my birdfeeder looks like a cage. People have told me so. But if you would stop being so stubborn, you would see that this feeder you so callously eschew would actually FREE YOU and that dark and gnarled husk you call a heart.

If you would just take a taste, just a taste, I think you would understand.

I think this chick is just TSTL. ;)

Teddy Pig said...

The bird's thinking... Why does the crazy lady think I would willingly get in a cage?

Carolyn Jean said...

TP: I feel uncomfortable about the cage look, too. It's squirrel proof, though! I was advised!

Sula, Yes, TSTL!

lisabea said...

I don't know. You find the right bird and that cage could be freeing...

I think I've read too much sick nasty pron. ew.

NORTH HAVEN? Yuck. Your tracking device has triggered my Connecticut snob hood.

Christine said...

Be patient... they'll come. I keep thinking of that line from that Kevin Costner baseball movie. How does that go? Oh yeah...

If you erect it, they will come. LOL oops!

Maybe they say build, not erect. Oh well. ;p

Carolyn Jean said...

LB: you live in NORTH HAVEN. Don't deny it. Sometimes trackers see me as a weird suburb where I don't live.

Christine: I hope they come! I haven't erected it but I've hung it.

My email is down today. Totally frustrating! I am getting NO emails!

This is in my head:
CJ standing at the window, looking upon the frozen wasteland, dashing a tear from her eye. The birds looking back at her, saying "Why CJ? Why? Why are you tempting to lure us into the American Gladiator cage ball of death?" Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars, is playing in the background, fade to black.

Sorry, carry on.

Carolyn Jean said...

Kim: LOL: Birds, No! It is not a ball of death! **sobs**

lisabea said...

hahahaahh I love the Snow Patrol part.

CJ, if you build it, they will come.

Your birdcage looking like those huge metal balls they have in the circus, where they ride motorcycles around. Sometimes the put it on fire!!
Fire in the hole!

Christine said erect. heh heh.
Lisabea has her mind on porn. What else is new?

Tumperkin said...

The answer is obvious. You need a sign.

"FREE BIRD FOOD HERE"

You'll be overrun.

LorelieLong said...

Once the snow melts, you could try sprinkling some loose seed around. Might get more squirrels than birds tho.

And Private Arrangements? I cried at the Cophenhagen scene. :(

lisabea said...

Ok. I may have to put a live feed thingie: Wolf sex vs. human sex? That got you a hit? OMG too funny. But the photo is still one of my favs that you posted. Heh.

Vicki said...

Maybe some peanutbutter with bird seed around the opening will entice them?

Carolyn Jean said...

Vicki,
That sounds like a good idea. I might try that after I get back from my trip if my latest thing didn't work, because maybe the birds would smell the peanut butter!

Carolyn Jean said...

and LL,
I am trying that right now - on the window sills underneath!
