I woke up late--well, I woke up on time, but my eyes refused to stay open--so I was in bathroom rushing to get ready for work when I heard a ruckus going on outside the window. I opened the window a bit more and saw a girl pigeon clearly peeved and a boy pigeon doing his best to get her attention. His chest was all puffed up, tail feathers fanned, head bobbing like John Travolta (the early years) doing his pigeon version of "If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together." I opened the window more and it didn't seem to disturb his game. So, I went to get my camera. I returned to the bathroom, turned on the camera and this is what I got.

That's him on the left, acting as if he's just waiting for the bus. "Nothing to see here, lady. Move along." I turned off the camera and went back to putting on make-up and he started up with the bobbing and puffing act again. Every time I put the camera near the window--nothing. I guess that's why you don't see pigeon porn in the video stores.

Also, around 4:15ish today, there was a fire west of my office. It appeared to be somewhere in the Vermont area, so I stayed a little late at work and our fine Los Angeles Fire Department had it out in no time.

Don't mind the blue haze. We have tinted windows at work.
