*Edit* I keep forgetting to add this is a weekly linkup hosted by 3twentysix and The Reinvention of Jessica! You should link up too :)
During sunset, the is a huge murder of crows (that's what you call a group of crows, I love it. Frogs are cool too, they are called an army!!! I love collective nouns. Did you know that was the name? A rainbow of butterflies (this one isn't really official I think, but I don't care). Gaggle of geese... I can go on) that fly in and settle into the trees lining the street next to the Paypal building (I don't work there, I just pass by there err day). With the time change and passing seasons, I only see this a few weeks of the year, because where I see the sunset changes, and I try to get a good enough photo that really captures the shear magnitude of birds. But it's hard cause the car is moving and sometimes larger vehicles get in my way and then I have Neil telling me what is with my obsession with these birds and just take a photo and be done with it, it's distracting and he is trying to drive. DON'T RUSH ART, GUY. Anyway. He was waiting in the car for me to get out from work and saw the crows flying (still does not capture all the birds!) and snapped a photo for me. Hooray! I still would like to get a photo of them in the trees, it looks so cool with the dark branches, dark silhouettes, and pink sky.
And in case anyone was thinking I'm like "hai, I'm Heather and I work in a super glamorous office building" no I'm not (well, I mean, I am Heather, the not was for the attitude) and I don't 'cause this is the building I work in.
My husband insisted we needed to buy our kitties this treat toy, which I resisted but was like okay but I don't think they will be interested. I need to stop not trusting Neil on his instinct on cat toys. They always love everything he picks out! Of course, every time I tried to get a photo of a cat playing with it, they would slink away.
Saturday morning my husband went to Oakland for a Magic card gathering thing so I chilled with the kitties (at this point, I'm sure this is a given and I don't really have to take photos of it) until my friend Katrina came by and we went to the mall. I was good and didn't spend too much money. I wanted to buy some grapefruit gummies from the candy store, but they didn't have any. Sad face.
Later I went to another mall (two malls in one day, who am I) with my husband and the Shanes, ate at the food court then went and saw the Revenant. I was under the impression opening weekend was LAST week, so I was a bit shocked that we ended up at the end of a long line. I thought we'd be last place in line, but we ended up being in the middle! So we still got good seats... unfortunately everyone around us were huge talkers. Neil had to turn around and ask the couple behind us if they were going to talk through the whole movie, and the girl was genuinely surprised that Neil was referring to her. We really didn't need to hear you say "that sucks" a thousand times. You know what sucks? Listening to you say that sucks.
