Where in the world has tarskin been??

Entertaining the idle hope that some people actually care about more then just warcraft related news i figured i should give those people an update on what has happened to me (aka where have i been):

1. Parrot decided i played too much warcraft
She started plucking her feathers which is quite painful to look at, she comes running to me for help as 'something' is hurting her. She relaxes as she believes i will protect her, followed by her plucking another feather and repeating the cycle.

2. Major stress-related trouble because of master's degree research
The stress of finising my degree combined with writing the thesis and the feather plucking problem turned me into a neurotic that couldn't sleep. That problem got fixed but now i'm going cold turkey on stress/sleep medicine ftw

3. Motor cycle accident during vacation to the french alps
Racing down a slippery mountain road on my Suzuki RF900R (see picture) was not the smartest thing i ever did. I locked up my rear tire going into a turn at 90kph which resulted in me rolling over the road a bit.



4. Busted hands during a 'adventure park' visit
The motor cycle crash took me about 1 week to 'recover' from and when i decided i needed to go out and do something so i went to an adventure park. There i managed to tumble down from a obstacle and like an idiot i tried to hang on to the rope resulting in open/bleeding hands... woot.

The only good thing i really have to mention is that i am now a 'Master of Science' in genetics... Time to start praying for a Ph.d position, which could be a pain because of the credit crunch.

Cheers,
Tar

Grats and .. well good luck with the missfortune. And your parrot should get indeed some attention. My parents in law have one too and it should be treated better. parrots are smart and should not be ignored and be spent a lot of time with actually.

I know, it's allready improving but it just takes a lot of time. She now only plucks a feather if i'm around, i think she learned that plucking makes me look. Now trying to deal with that part ;P

Yes they are smart... Next time, spent time with her and if she plucks her feathers, just turn around or become angry.

Dunno you might also try treating her to a snack when she is good... And females are always a hard breed to work with :D
