[personal profile] fuzzyred has been updating the Shiv thread page. As of the latest round, it's almost done; we just have one last batch to finish. \o/

There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, April 2 with a theme of "alternative methods of teaching."  If you're stuck for prompts, I have a card for the School Days Bingo Fest, or you could check out the School Words list of prompts.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There is one open epic.

"Chewing Anyway" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. It opened and closed on the same day. Shiv finds some new coping tools.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

Weather here has been variable. It rained again, enough to make big puddles in the. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of grackles, a small flock of sparrows, a small flock of mourning doves, a small flock of dark-eyed juncos, a small flock of house finches, a small flock of goldfinches, two pairs of cardinals, a pair of rufous-sided towhees, a downy woodpecker, a robin, a redtail hawk, some kind of wren on the suet feeder, a rabbit, and a squirrel. Amusingly the birds are ignoring the frequent spurts of water from the sump pump; I thought it would scare them away, but they just walk through the spray.  :D
