I am seriously starting to dislike pigeons... Today I was in my room in Leiden to do some stuff and I had opened up my windows, because my room had an overwhelming smell of new wood (which I usually like, but it can get too much).
One of my housemates came upstairs to chat a bit and suddenly she's like urm, there's a pigeon on your windowsill, and a pigeon had indeed comfortably installed itself on my curtains - they still need to be cut and sown, they're way too long. When I shoo'ed the bird away, I found out it had pooped on my (white!) curtains apparantly already a while ago, because I couldn't get it out anymore :(. Freakin' pigeons, they poop everywhere where they shouldn't poop.
The turn of the day, when all music fools come out to play until the drunk turn of night.

Pigeons are nice birds but sometimes they can be annoying indeed. I have a room under the roof so that there are skylights, also over my bed. One morning I woke up and heard an ugly sound over my head. I opened my eyes and saw a pigeon right over my head, it sat there, scratching the glass with its feet staring down at me. It was a scary moment, especially because I was still half-asleep.

Rats with wings :lol: We have a lot of wood pidgeons here, and it's the noise they make I can't stand! Not to mention their wonderful habit of seeing how late they can leave getting out of the way of the car without getting run over :roll:

LOL @ marlies with the pigeonpoep! :P

I find the current fashion for young people to call other people 'Ledge' quite annoying. I often reply with 'What kind of ledge, a window ledge??'

I know its supposed to be shortened 'Legend' but surely if I was a Legend then I wouldn't actually exist or I would be dead. :P

Aw, Marlies, I sympathize! I walked through Vienna once when something slightly wet hit me on my shoulder....I couldn't believe it, I mean, what are the odds of getting hit by bird poo? Besides, it was really embrassing because I was on my way to the cinema and I had to sit through Harry Potter with the remains of my unpleasant encounter on my shoulder - it's hard to get rid of, even when fresh!

I actually remember a friend kicking a pidgeon once. She made a joke she'd kick one if it came to close. We didn't think she'd actually kick, but she did. Not very hard, no harm was done to the thing, it flew away. I do think it never returned though... lol

We get wood pigeons land on our TV ariel and start making their distinctive calling noise. This sound then travels down the chimney, and you're left thinking that there's a wood pigeon mounted at the top of the chimney column, or even that it's in the house sometimes.

I remember one religion lesson at school where our teacher wondered why a pidgeon ever became the symbol of the holy ghost and of peace...out of all the birds to be chosen, why a pidgeon? We never got an answer, but sometimes I still wonder about that.

On another note, what is really annoying is a younger brother who is too impatient to wait for you to take the baguettes out of the oven and slaps your hand away. I'm all for letting him get his things himself, but this time my hand happened to hit the top of the oven (inside) and now I have two huge burn marks on the back of my hand!

Ouch! Take care of that hand!

I thought it was a dove, not a pidgeon? Mind you, there's not a huge amount of difference sometimes :lol:

Don't know what (if anything) the difference is, but you're right G, the usual translation is dove! :)
