There's A Bird In My Icing!

You know those Rorschach tests where there's a ink splatter and you're supposed to see something in it? Like an elephant riding a tricycle (the clusterf__k interpretation: you never got to go to the circus when you were little and you feel inadequate as an adult) or Christian Bale holding a chainsaw (the clusterf__k interpretation: you secretly love Phil Collins...I'm looking at you Christian!). Anyway, last night I was making Xmas cookies with my sister and as we were cleaning up I say a bird in the runoff icing. A peacock to be exact:

Isn't that insane!?

Then, after I took a picture of it with my iPhone and Michelle and I marvelled over its awesomeness, I was getting ready to crumple up the wax paper and throw it in the trash when we spotted another bird...

This time a parakeet!

Michelle then attempted to try to discover more birds lost in the globs of icing, but her pursuit was fruitless and the wax paper went into the garbage. Still, pretty cool and random, huh!? I wonder what birds symbolize?

From the dream dictionary:

Birds symbolize your goals, aspirations and hopes.

A peacock is traditionally a good omen, signaling prestige, success and contentment in your relationships and/or career. Peacocks can also symbolize health, longevity, happiness in love, and wealth. Alternatively, a peacock may also suggest that many eyes are watching you. In that case, the peacock may signify pride, confidence and vanity. The peacock may convey a warning that you are showing off too much or being arrogant about your success and achievements.

A parrot might represent some message or gossip being conveyed to you or that you are conveying to others. The parrot may convey a warning that you have someone in your life who is too gossipy and betraying your confidences. That someone could even be mocking you and holding you up for ridicule by repeating stories about you. Alternately, it might be you who is behaving like a parrot, in that case, be careful that you are not being gossipy or indiscreet. Think twice about repeating or sharing too much information about yourself and/or others. The parrot can symbolize a "follow the herd" mentality. Consider if you are thinking/speaking for yourself and not blindly following or repeating the words of some other person or group. Another possibility is that the parrot denotes a very colorful person in your life. This person may be eccentric and/or obnoxious with a very bold, standout personality.

Well, I can see the peacock reference...I am pretty awesome and my sugar cookies were like flippin' amazing! But I would not same I'm vain or too proud!

Creepy...the parakeet is totally making sense too...I'm not usually a gossipy person but I've been ridiculously gossipy at Sbux lately! Sometimes I feel like a 14 year old girl in high school, it's that bad! I best keep my mouth shut!
