Murder Of Crows

Family Tree
Been known to annoy humans, but mostly misunderstood. In mythology, the crow symbolizes integrity and doing unto others as we would like them to do to us. Crow teaches us to know ourselves beyond the limitations of one-dimensional thinking and laws. It is about bringing magic into our lives. This animal teaches to appreciate the many dimensions both of reality and ourselves, and to learn to trust our intuition and personal integrity. There is magic wherever crows are. They give us the message that there is magic alive in our world and this magic is ours to use and create a new world for ourselves with.

Thirty-Three (But Who's Counting...Crows)

Rate: 17 Flag







1. Your main trait:  Intelligence.  Humans may call us "bird brains" but, on the whole, we do far better in a flock than those dodos in Congress.


2. The quality you like best in a manDoesn't over preen.


3. The quality you like best in a woman:  Efficiency.  Pops out those eggs, stays the course, gets the little buggers out of the nest.   


4. Your main flaw:  Roadkill palate.


5. Last time you cried Watching the human who lives with us in the forest bury her little dog.  Didn't like the little stinker much but she is kind to us, and when she started crying, we all snuffled.


6. Ideal job: What could possibly be better than flying and eating dead things? 


7. Scent of a placeThe seashore, salty, briney offerings in clam and mussel shells and tiny crabs.  


8. Beloved movie: "The Birds."  Our roost heads out to the outdoor theatre every summer when they show it.  Best seats in town. 


9. Book on the nightstand:   Edgar Allen Poe.  


10. First and best kiss: Because we tend to shriek a lot, crows have some intimacy issues.  It's hard to suck face with a beak.


11. You couldn’t do without: trees, wind, worms, roadkill.  


12. How you would like to die:  Regurgitating something really tasty into the tiny mouth of a little new life. 


13. Song you sing in the shower. "Oklahoma".  I don't know why; I just like it.  


14. Your deadly sin: Distracted by anything shiny, especially a plate glass window.  Which is how I DON"T want to die.  


15. Your not-so-deadly sin:  Playing a practical joke on Mookie, the raven.  He's more gullble than a stupid sea gull.  You can tell him, "Hey! Mookie!  There's fresh dead possum on the road," and then sit on your branch watching Mookie gliding over and over the road looking for it, and the whole tree just explodes with cackling.  


16. Your motto: Flap like hell when Mookie figures out the joke's on him.


17. Ideal first date:  A little necking, flapping of the wings, maybe a jig, and then get down to it.  Hey -- life's short and there are eggs to lay.


18. Favorite present:  A newly dead rodent for dessert.     


19. In the train: Pluuueeezz.  Have you tried having sex dangling on a branch?


20. Something you’d change in your body:  A beak-job would be nice.  I look like the old Cher.


21. Your addiction: Suet cakes. 


22. Now on your left:  A crow.


23. Now on your right: A dead maple branch.  


24. Now in front of you: My posse.


25. Now behind you: The rest of my posse.


26. Names for your children: Scare, Countin, Sheryl.


27. 3 things in your purse (my favorite things):  If I had one, it would be filled with shiny things.  And money.


28. 3 places that fascinate you: Telephone wires, tree tops and fields of grubs.


29. 3 people you’d like to meet: Kerry Lauerman, Emily Holleman and our beloved Art.


30. 3 traits you hate in people:  meanness, miserliness and mockery.


31. Values inherited from your parents:  I never really knew my parents.  (Do you feel sorry for me?) 


32. In your past life you were:   A God.  Or Goddess


33. In your future life you’ll beA smarter bird.

for you, candace. i just couldn't do it straight.
What a perfect post to read first thing this morning. "Oklahoma" indeed. ~r

(*Perhaps that should be "Caw!"*)

Dear Crow,

Wasn't that you and some of your posse chasing my buddy Hawk around the hood the other day? He might look like a wuss, but I've seen him tear the head off a squirrel in a single rip. Be careful.

Your friend,
This is the first post on OS all seven of our cats have enjoyed, hanging on every word despite my clumsiness with the MeowMeow dialect. They would looooove to meet you (they said this in seven-part harmony).
Of course ... this is perfect coming straight from the crow's nest. Next life you'll be a genius ... is there a bird smarter than a crow?
Love the baby names.
Now this is a 33 list!
The baby names are priceless rated.
This was just pure pleasure to read.
Ab-so-lutely fabulous. Wow. Who else but you could be this creative and pull it off? Every single answer is outta the park, MOC. And Oklahoma! Oklahoma??? As Jarjar said, weesa dyin' here. Just too good.
"Roadkill palate" *ack*

Love number 2 and the rest afterwards.

I enjoy the crows near my house, which are almost as big as ravens. There are two very tall cypress trees across the street, where they usually hang out. I have tried to make friends with them, but they are too wary. They make a soft sound almost like a frog, much of the time. They use this voice especially when cooing sweet nothings to one another.
