Chicken Shortage in Addis Ababa

Chickens by Peter B. Tzannes on Flickr"Chickens" by Peter B. Tzannes on Flickr...


My sister sends news that due to regular power outages in Addis in the spring, the incubators did not keep all the eggs warm, so there is a severe chicken shortage right now. The nearest chicken farm without said shortage is 100km away, but they are bringing in chickens to sell at the market this weekend. She hopes to get there early enough before they are all sold.

I'm hungry. I think I'm going to open the ziploc bag thingy of pre-grilled chicken strips and heat it up on the stove. With some salad out of a bag, too. With Product 19 Cereal for dessert. Or maybe Eggo waffles. Yeah, that's the ticket. Grilled chicken strips, salad, and Eggos.

I think I may be sinking too deep, and too comfortably, into confirmed bachelorhood.

Hey, what can I say? I have to find some way to amuse myself at 1:00 in the morning...

You heard it here first, on Alex.Tango.Fuego!

Have you started having your meals while standing at the open fridge?

GREAT shot, btw...

Hey Johanna, not yet, but I do eat in the car while driving sometimes.

Also, not my photo...mouse over or click it to see who took the photo...

Oh yeah, and it is a nice shot. I like the low angle - chicken level. And, I like the hen in the lower right corner curiously looking into the lens - like she's about to peck it.
