It's a no-go on the chickens. Townhouses are not allowed to have barnyard animals.
Here's something entirely unrelated:
Last night I went to sleep snuggled up close to Drek. The next thing I knew, I was standing across the room from the bed and my throat was sore. Slowly, I realized I was screaming.
A night terror. Sigh. When was the last time I had one? Last year? The last major one I had, where I find myself out of bed, was April 29, 2006. I think. Drek may think differently.
