Mail-Order~!

It totally came in the mail today. I had it mailed to Onishi, and busted it out of his mailbox earlier today - I didn't really think that it would get here this fast. It's got this book that came with it though... "The Care and Keeping of Your Kiwi Bird." Wonder what it eats...?

Miyo seems to be sort of okay with it, but she's a little suspicious. I guess I'd be too, if I met a bird that was that much bigger than me. But...what should I name it?

Onishi Hiroshi: is so offended by younumber1disciple on January 26th, 2007 05:55 pm (UTC)
MIZUMACHI. I TOLD YOU NOT TO HAVE IT SENT TO MY HOUSE.

Do you know why kiwis can't fly? Because they didn't need to evolve wings to survive, as there are no natural predators in New Zeland. Do you know why they're going extinct? Because of the pets Europeans brought with them when they decided to populate the island. Pets like dogs, cats and ferrets.

Just thought I'd warn you. Not that you deserve it, after having it sent to my house.
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 26th, 2007 06:05 pm (UTC)
BUT I COULDN'T HAVE SENT IT TO MY HOUSE.

But it's so cute. I don't care if it can't fly.

And...wait. Ferrets? Like Miyo-chan?
Onishi Hiroshi: thinks(knows) you're stupid.number1disciple on January 26th, 2007 06:08 pm (UTC)
Yes. Exactly like Miyo-chan. You better put atleast one of them in a cage, quick, before you have a dead bird on your hands.
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!: Huh?machizilla on January 26th, 2007 06:15 pm (UTC)
*runs!*

Okay, they're in separate rooms. But...Miyo-chan's so much tinier...

And how do you know so much about kiwi birds anways?
Onishi Hiroshi: is not really impressednumber1disciple on January 26th, 2007 06:27 pm (UTC)
Ferrets can kill rabbits. Of course they can kill flightless, defenseless birds.

....I just do.

A...kiwi? Mizumachi-kun...where did you order such a thing?
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!: Huh?machizilla on January 26th, 2007 07:19 pm (UTC)
Well, you can get almost anything on the internet! So, I ordered one up. Now I've got an official birdy babysitter and everything!
Yukimitsu Manabuf_ing_baldy on January 26th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
...I...see. But aren't both you and your friend heading off to some sort of camp next week?
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 27th, 2007 01:52 am (UTC)
...

Dang.

Hey, wait though! You're not going, are you? You...maybe wanna watch her for a while?
Yukimitsu Manabu: panicf_ing_baldy on January 27th, 2007 04:08 am (UTC)
I guess? I could. If you had a very concealable cage, and left detailed instructions.

And assuming turtles don't eat kiwis, or vice versa. That should be safe.

This being entirely dependent on Mother not finding out, of course...sure. What's her name? And who's taking care of your...ferret, was it?
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 27th, 2007 05:36 am (UTC)
Yeah! Look, I've got this book and everything. I'm done with it for now, so you can read up on kiwis, if you want. And from what the book said, a turtle shouldn't be a problem... Though a ferret is.

Oh, and she doesn't have a name yet... I'm working on it. As for Miyo-chan, she's coming with. Don't tell anyone.

What the- ...? I kinda want a kiwi now.
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 27th, 2007 05:39 am (UTC)
It's a bird! See! *holds up proudly*
Wakana Koharustressed_damsel on January 27th, 2007 05:13 am (UTC)
Oh! That's adorable!

Of course it's bad to take it out of its natural environment, but... if they're going extinct, maybe establishing a kiwi population in Japan is to the good? Do you know if your kiwi is male or female? Because if it lays eggs I might want one...
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 27th, 2007 05:46 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks!

Yeah, but I guess the predators are gettin' 'em or whatever - or at least that's what Onishi told me. So, I'll protect it! And it's a girl! Or, that's what the papers said. I still don't have a name for her yet though...
Hiruma Youichi: yo momma went to collegedevil_inarms on January 27th, 2007 10:47 pm (UTC)
Name it 'Little Fucking Poseidon'.
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 28th, 2007 05:41 am (UTC)
That's not a very good name though. Can't say it in public.

But what about Posey? That's not bad...
whiteknight_3 on January 30th, 2007 02:48 pm (UTC)
It's cute! Wakana has a point, though. 'Posey...?' *is too nice to say what he really thinks of that name*
Kakei Shun: kakei - wtf!?smoldering_eyes on January 31st, 2007 02:24 am (UTC)
O___O
You. Got. WHAT!?

And why didn't you tell me at all????
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!: Woo!machizilla on January 31st, 2007 02:48 am (UTC)
It's a kiwi bird! Special ordered!

I didn't tell you because you weren't really around... And Onishi says he doesn't want it around you because you'll get "diseases", but Posey doesn't have any diseases. Or at least not people ones.

((OOC: Why do I get the feeling that Kakei icon is going to get used a lot for me...?))
Kakei Shun: Kakei - surprisesmoldering_eyes on January 31st, 2007 02:56 am (UTC)
Well, nothing we can do now. I don't think an animal shelter would be able to handle a renegade KIWI BIRD in TOKYO.

And my mother was being quite testy since I was insisting on attending the amefuto camp, but you see where that lead me. And you didn't answer my calls at night for training. And the whole not getting diseases thing doesn't work if YOU get it first and then pass it on to me. I don't think kiwis are diseased though...

((OOC: oh, because it was cropped from the scene where Mizu was crossdressing and cheerleading... I made it especially for you <3))
水町 健吾 - Mizumachi~!machizilla on January 31st, 2007 02:59 am (UTC)
I'm taking good care of her!

I couldn't answer your calls. I lost my cell phone. In the lake. And she's not! Posey is perfectly healthy. *nod nod*

((OOC: I'm so honored. :3 ))
Kakei Shunsmoldering_eyes on January 31st, 2007 03:05 am (UTC)
I'm assuming because the kiwi isn't there with you and not drowned

You have any idea how quiet it is to run 3 miles at 10:00!?
