Doing better...sort of  
Thanks to everyone that commented. I'm feeling much better today about losing Seagrass. I have a few pics I took of her on that last day. She was adorable.

See that cute eye? That's what I loved most about her. She looks like my cartoon budgies always amazed or surprised.

She was a pastel sea green with no black. I like that. Kind of rare.

It's funny she doesn't have her other dot on her beard. Budgies usually have four.

Well my hands are bad again and it's because I played too much. I couldn't resist. It was fun though. I didn't allow myself to play today and I won't play tomorrow either. But it's driving me nuts that I can't play. I want to. It shouldn't hurt. I've been gaming for years.

The day before I hurt them I got some good progress done on my drawing. I worked a little bit on it today. Not as much because holding the mouse and the pen hurts too. But I'm slowly chipping away at it.

I've also started trying to organize my computer room and throw out stuff I don't need. I still have all the plasic boxes out and I'm finally sick of it. They need to go back in the closet. But first I need to organize them and figure out what order to place them in so I can fit the most stuff in there while still taking weight into consideration.

Sunday Christ took me to Michael's and they already have Halloween stuff out. This time instead of getting annoyed I got very excited. It didn't bother me because there's nothing in Aug-Sept for it to over shadow. If they can keep it in stock without Christmas creeping in way too early that would be great. You guys know I rant about that every year. And leave Nov for Thanksgiving damn it!

Anyway, I want to get everything out of my room because I want to decorate it for Halloween and Fall. I went on Party Cheap's website and there are some neat things I really want. I want to use the whole back wall this year.

Perhaps I'll work on my story now. I did write a small section but now I am at the very stuck point I've been dreading. I have a general idea of what I want to happen but I don't have the specifics. I shouldn't really be typing either but I want to do something. Typing is the thing that hurts the least.

Aww Seagrass was so pretty!
That sucks about your hands again though :( Hope they get better again fast with lots of rest.
I haven't seen any halloween stuff yet. But then again it's not as popular over here anyway.
That reminds me, I need to finish my fic. It's nearly done but I keep forgetting to get it off my netbook lol!

Yeah she was a cutie.
Thanks but yeah it's my own stupid fault. I felt them hurting while playing and didn't listen to myself and stop.
It's too bad there isn't more Halloween stuff over there. It's so fun.

She's missing a spot just like Rudy is.

I haven't been to Michael's in weeks.

That's funny I never noticed he had a missing dot.

I hadn't been to one in a while but I wanted to go look. I had a feeling Halloween stuff was out and I was right.

I don't have any recent pictures uploaded. Last time he molted, he lost his left dot closest to his beak. The feather grew back, but it didn't have a dot on it. You know the little "hairs" on each feather(I don't know the real name for them.) It has one single black one, instead of a whole bunch of black ones that make the dot. He didn't have a feather with a real dot on it there until he was a year old, and sometimes that dot comes back smaller than the others.

Oh the hairs are called Barbs. Barbs have little hooks called Barbules (I know I spelled that wrong) that help to zip the feathers up when preened. Baby budgies don't usually have dots until their first molt. It's interesting that that folicle for him doesn't always lay down pigment for that dot or only partially. I'm always happy when I find those dot feathers molted because they are rare and unique.

I think I have eight or nine of Rudy's dot feathers in my (not so) little collection. I always look for them when I notice him missing one. I have one from Skippy, and several from Nigel. Nigel's are easy to find though, because they are so big. I remember as a kid even finding one of Larry's, but I lost it. His were just like Rudy's. Simon didn't have dots because of his mutation.

I love the colour of Seagrass. She was very special. RIP little girl.

That sucks that you play games for one day and now you can't do it again. It would drive me nuts, too!

Yeah I loved those colors.

Yes, it's driving me nuts. I only got on long enough to buy some supplies for Owen which was only about five minutes and doesn't require mad button mashing. Not enough though.
