'Kay... Normal 'keet background chatter and mostly quiet 'tiels. Then I start watching Supernatural, and the 'tiels (Logan and Jubilee, the X-birds) start flying around the living room like Ritalin kids who've been mainlining quintuple espressos, the 'keets flit around their cage ricocheting off of bars and toys like Dick Grayson on cocaine and high-fructose corn syrup, and ALL the birds are like...
"OMG WE R THE BIRDIE SUPERNATURAL FANDOM AND WE LOOOOOOVE SUPERNATURAL SO MUCH WE HAVE TO DROWN IT OUT WITH OUR CHORUS OF CHEERS DO YOU LIKE THIS PART WE LIKE THIS PART WE REALLY LOVE THIS PART WOOOOOOOT WE R TEH BIRDS WHO LOVE SUPERNATURAL SHOW YOUR LOVE BY BEING AS LOUD AS POSSIBLE WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"
Then when I turn it off, they quiet down some, but the 'keets line up on one side of the cage and gaze at me pleadingly until I put it back on again. Yes, these birds beg for movies and TV. (Their faves are Watchmen and Supernatural, and probably Fullmetal Alchemist, but I haven't played FMA since Sachi's been gone, because it's her favorite, and it reminds me of her too much. I'll post more about the Sachi search later.) The 'tiels give the occasional complaining squawk (they're not as advanced in their begging skills as Sachi and the 'keets), and Jubilee will sometimes flutter down to land on my head in protest until I give in, partly due to their begging, but mostly because I want to watch my damn show. I mean, sure, I could use headphones, but despite the frustration factor, it's awfully cute and entertaining when they get worked up.
And if I may translate for them just a little bit more... "OMG DID YOU SEE WHAT CAS JUST DID AND HE'S MAKING PEOPLE SOUNDS BUT WE CAN'T UNDERSTAND BECAUSE HEY WE'RE FREAKIN' BIRDS, OKAY, AND ARE CAS AND MEG GOING TO SHOVE THEIR BEAKS TOGETHER AGAIN I DON'T KNOW BUT LET'S FIND OUT WOOOOOT DAD'S GONNA TURN SUPERNATURAL BACK ON ANY MINUTE NOW WOOOOOOT!"
(Left to right: Jubilee, me, and Logan. When I talk about having wing men... er... wing... entities, I'm being quite literal.)
