- I don't remember when the neighbors got chickens, but when they are clucking as your alarm goes off, it becomes much harder to ignore.

- I'm annoyed that I didn't think to record my football game last night so I could watch the whole thing from the start and skip the commercials, instead of just planning to miss the first quarter.  Ah, the fun of being a fan of a Midwestern team while living on the west coast - lots of 9am games.

ADDENDUM - Several of the 'monster Saturday' games they're talking up on ESPN today involve Big Ten teams, and for the most part all of those teams are slight underdogs.  I'm not sure if that makes us wimpy or smart for playing San Jose St today, but if the big three in the conference all come out of this weekend with a loss that will sure make Wisconsin's life simpler.

- For those of you who understand dreams, the only thing I remember from last night was trying to clean Spanish rice out of the copier so I could run a job through (ie someone had dumped rice on / in the automatic intake and on the copy window).  What?

Is the area in zoned for chickens? Usually there are regulations about this.

I have no idea. Several families in the neighborhood acquired chickens this spring, though, so I'm guessing it's okay.

LOL, a hotel we stayed in in Germany was in a very rural area and there were roosters nearby. They really did crow in the morning!

I can snooze my alarm and keep sleeping, or I can ignore the chickens. But when both things are being loud at the same time there is no hope for me. Crazy!

I was looking through the "personal enrichment" section of the local adult education center, and one of them was a class on remembering and understanding dreams. I thought that was kind of weird, and then I thought, "I should take that!" :)

It does seem like a weird class to offer, but I bet it'd be interesting. Fixing a jammed copier I get, I do it all the time, but I still have no idea why Spanish rice.

Having chickens in my city is becoming this sort of indie thing to do, which I find odd and interesting at the same time. I think there's a limit to how many chickens a person can have within Chicago, but no one in my immediate area has taken up the hobby. I know someone in the neighborhood over has neighbors with chickens, no rooster though luckily, so no cock-a-doodle-dooing so far.

I don't know why I haven't gotten excited about football season yet. But hopefully it'll kick in soon.

Yeah, several of my neighbors got chickens within days of each other last spring. I still think it was a class project for a local school and then the kids got to take them home. They're not too loud most of the time, but when they start at the same time as my alarm there is no hope for snoozing.

I'm still a touch meh about football too, though my teams are supposed to be good this year. I'm hoping I'll be able to watch a few more early games, knowing the players tends to help me stay invested.
