While Ella was checking out The Portable Dorothy Parker, Birdie climbed into her lap and introduced herself by squawking loudly. I think she startled Ella, but she seemed to take it in stride. They had a nice chat and Birdie admired Ella's outfit. Then Birdie excused herself and headed back to bed, explaining she had an early meeting.
Ella returned Dorothy Parker to the shelf and decided on Horton Hears a Who! instead.
