    The chickens love it. It is like junk food for them if given too often (due to being too low in protein, etc). I mostly give it to them in the winter to help them stay warm.

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 7

    1. O.M.F.G. I think I finally solved the mystery of the beeping smoke alarm. I thought I only had 2 smoke alarms - one in each bedroom. The one that I thought was faulty didn't have a battery in it (I must've taken it out another time and forgot to replace it). The other one I knew didn't have a battery in it, because I'd taken it out and been too lazy to put it back up when I got the new batteries. After confirming this, I took both smoke alarms out to the garage one by one. Yet I was still hearing occasional beeping. Not all the time, just every couple of hours it would beep occasionally then stop for a few hours. I checked the internet installation but it didn't seem to be coming from there (plus the light says battery is ok). I listened out in the hallway. I put my ear near the floor. Unable to localise beep to any of these locations. I only just realised that I have a 3rd smoke alarm in the living room. That MUST be the culprit. Battery has been removed for the time being to confirm. If there's no beeping overnight then tomorrow I'll replace the batteries for the "good" two alarms. Still need to replace the expired alarm. Only took me 4 days.

    2. Pizza on pita bread for dinner.
    3. Started trying to learn Cantonese. So far I know about the 6 tones used for jyutping.

    Haha. Just a little green tree frog sitting by the front door. Much better than the cane toads that we'll start seeing over the next couple of months.

    BONUS: The motion-detector driveway alarm has finally paid off, though in an unexpected way. When the alarm went off, we noticed our neighbor's dog had run away and was coming here. Neighbor was very grateful when we returned him.

    1. Speaking of noise cancelling headphones... There are 4 people on a phone meeting, who are all in this open office so I can hear most of the meeting. Why not get a ****ing meeting room you asshats?!! All of upstairs is empty, go there! Go anywhere! Putting on the headphones before I do more than make passive aggressive loud noises getting them out of my drawer.
    2. It's Friday.
    3. Going to take a break from trying to learn what to do to analyse beams with aspect ratios less than 10,because that was clearly a waste of time this morning.

    Bonus: Ended up almost losing my **** so I went upstairs into a MEETING ROOM to have some quiet time. Funny how the rooms designated for people to meet and have business disourse were empty whilst people were having their meeting where it could disturb people who aren't involved.
    Had an hour of quiet time before going back to my desk.

    1. On Saturday I learned that given the right (wrong?!) circumstances, the body can perform an uncontrolled, unintentional nose-blow. Interesting albeit with rather gross outcomes.
    2. My "punishment meal" yesterday morning of a sandwich with canned spaghetti tasted better than I remembered. Not sure why I decided that was a good punishment meal other than it being easy but not tasting good, while also not being the same boring stuff I always have.
    3. Dinner last night was really good. It used a lot of oyster sauce, but that's not a bad thing given how long I've had the bottle. Leftovers tonight and I'll just need to add more veges for the next 2 nights after that.

    Not much different than the Olive Garden experience They provide so little pasta sauce sometimes, I usually just get the salad and breadsticks or a lunch special.
