Len needed to clean out The Ladies' house yesterday, so he shooed them out, blocked the entrance and shoveled out the grossness (reason #1 I didn't want anything to do with the Chicken Project).
Then he got distracted by other projects, dinner and bad TV. It was after 10:00 that he got back out to give them clean bedding. The Ladies were Not Pleased. They have a bedtime, it had long passed, and they yelled at him the whole time. Len said he had never heard such barking before, a combination of growling and "bock-bock".
Secret Cultural Shame
This comes from a blog I've been reading recently (pretty to think so), who found it by way of New York Magazine and the London Times. I, myself, think it would be a pretty good Meme. I'm not going to tag anyone specifically, but if I tell you my secret shames, I'd love to hear your's.
Books: I've never read Wuthering Heights (I have read Jane Eyre and I hated it). I haven't read very many of the Modern Library list of 100 Best Novels (then again, that list is suspect, since it does not include Beloved by Toni Morrison, which is a truly Great American Novel). I am embarrassed to admit that I hated A Catcher in the Rye.
Movies: I have never seen (but should have) "Raging Bull", "Taxi Driver", "The Godfather" (1, 2, or 3), "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", and "Schindler's List". I've seen and not liked "Saving Private Ryan" (first 15 minutes are great, the rest is pedestrian), "2001: A Space Odyssey", "Gone With the Wind" and "The Silence of the Lambs". I am not embarrassed to say that I hated "Titanic". And for very personal reasons, I hate "When Harry Met Sally".
Television: I've never seen The Honeymooners. Or Alf.
