Guai-Guai, The Cockatiel

[weather|sunny]
[mood|happy]

The cockatiel is slowly becoming less afraid of us, now that we hand feed him =) We used to stick our hand in the cage door, Guai-Guai would put one foot on the feeding hand and hang on to the cage with the other. Then he'd put both feet on the hand.

Recently, we've taken to bringing him out of the cage while he's eating. =) We've gotten him to step onto this wooden rod stand and step back onto our hand on demand. He doesn't like standing on my outstretched finger. My MIL says it's because my fingers are so small that it's hard for him to clasp. He much prefers to stand on the padded base of my thumb.

Today, MIL Woman was taking him around the house a bit. She says that he was nervous, clasping his claws on her really tightly. Then she put him in front of a mirror. They were laughing as he was trying to figure out who that other bird was that "keeps copying him" and pecked at the mirror a bit.

Brain the size of a pea. =)

InsideOut A Capella - Jackie Chan

To the tune of "Take A Chance On Me" — ABBA

Wanna fight?! Fight me!

Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Jackie-Chan-Chan
Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Jackie-Chan-Chan
Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Jackie-Chan-Chan

Oh he's Taiwanese, starred in movies,    [.................................. Jackie Chan is not Taiwanese]
He's a kung fu freak, Jackie Chan is he.
If you need a hero, he's gonna be around,
If you're a bad guy, he's gonna beat you down.

If you're all alone and getting whooped,
Then he'll show up and back you up.
He could beat Ralph Macchio or Miyagi,
Jean-Claude Van Damme is tough, but he can't compete.

Jackie Chan is he (c'mon, throw me a punch, Jackie)
He's in your TV (that's all I ask of you)

He can do a high kick,
He can do a roundhouse,
He can punch your teeth out.

Might be just one guy,
Maybe more than ten guys,
He'll still get them knocked down.

Cuz you know he's got
A black belt in jujitsu,
Karate and kung fu.
He's magic.

He speaks with a cool accent,
He's from the Orient,
Jackie Chan is he.
He's in your TV.

He's not like all those other runts,
He takes great pride in doing all his stunts,
His leaps off buildings don't do him no harm,
He's broken forty bones in his left arm.

Everybody wants kung fu fighting,
Ai-YA! Dinga-dinga-ding-ding-dong...
Jackie Chan is fast as lightning,
Ai-YA! Donga-donga-ding-ding-DING...

Oh he's Taiwanese, starred in movies,
He's a kung fu freak, Jackie Chan is he.
If you need a hero, he's gonna be around,
If you're a bad guy, he's gonna beat you down.

Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Jackie-Chan-Chan
Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Jackie-Chan-Chan
Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Chan, Jackie-Jackie-Chan-Chan

Jackie-Chan, Jacki--- *BIFF*... ow! Hey Jackie, that hurt...

Dinga-dinga-ding-ding-dong...

Sacred Source

bellacrow might be interested in this too: Sacred Source is an online source for over 500 types of multicultural Goddesses and God images for ritual, display, education, etc.

The Isis Power Wand is so beautiful.

They don't have perpetual water flow Guan Yin figures though... I want one of those for myself. Husband Guy's family has two, the one I like is an all white porcelain, no colour, so all the features are a part of the mold. It's extremely well crafted, but the perpetual water thing doesn't work quite right.

The other one is painted, it doesn't look as good, but it works well.
