And a big thank you goes out to...

1. The stupid rich neighbors who left their yippy dogs out again all last night. Yip! Yip! Yip! Yip!

2. The overaged frat boys two buildings down who heralded the arrival of spring (and Daylight Savings) by standing out by their cars screaming "WHOO!" like Ric Flair over and over again at 3 a.m.

3. The confused songbird who perched on my balcony at 5 a.m. doing this weird, two-note, slidewhistle thing for half an hour.

4. The giant, scary woodpecker who appeared on the crabapple tree in front of my apartment at 7 a.m. and pounded away for 45 minutes.

Thank you all for making the set-the-clocks-back short night even more fun.

Cranky, but ready for a little alternative history mockumentary goodness today...

Okay--our jaunts this week will include a trip to CVS for super-duper ear plugs! We can't have you sleep deprived...

Well..I don't know about the frat boys, but the birds are letting out mating calls. That woodpecker drill is definitely a "Helllloooo Ladies" call. Just think of the birds, and the boys, and lonely guys, looking for some chickadees. ;)

The birds of spring are one of the few, rare things I enjoy about D.C. But last week, I was lying in bed, dozing, listening to the chorus of birds thinking, "This is so nice and especially for a Saturday." Five minutes later I shot out of bed when I realized it was actually THURSDAY and I was going to be late for work!

Now, why I equate birds singing with the luxury of sleeping in on Saturdays is beyond me...
