Gallus interruptus:Gallus gallus domesticus is the biological name for chicken. I think we need this phrase because all too often when I'm trying to get Job A done, some chicken or other, gets in the way and derails me.

Examples of its use: 1) Today I went up field to collect the eggs. #2 Son experienced Gallus interruptus when I had to call him to get out to the field quickly as a chicken had managed to get herself stuck under the bottom pipe of her moveable shelter and I needed him to lift the shelter while I rescued the poor thing.

2) The other day I suffered Gallus interruptus when Dorothy got under my feet so that her sister, Blondie, could sneak past me into the goose shelter. Then I had to try to get Blondie out, without Dorothy sneaking in during the process.

What words/phrases would others like to add?

I'm not sure what the word would be, but it means "This is what I'm able to do at the moment, I have better plans!"
Anyone got a word for that?

Good one! I was thinking this describes a rather large subset of permaculture I would call "tempermaculture".

I thought of a chicken phrase a few months ago as a humerous answer in the affirmative. Example:

Person 1: "Does Paul Wheaton like permaculture?"
Person 2: "Do chickens shit on the porch!?"

Ploarder/ploarding:a person, or the act of hoarding plants.

George is such a ploarder - he's got 30 varieties of apples and came begging 3 more off of me.

Landscaper's Curse

When someone is in the landscaping business, their home landscape and projects are never done. Because all there time and energy is doing landscaping for other people and can not find good help.

Example:

"Why is Sam's grass long and everything is looking bad?"

"Well Sam has the landscaper curse."

Hmmm... I would have said it's because long grass shades the soil and provides more homes for micro-fauna, myself, but I get your point!

Yes! You are right! Long grass is great for a lot of creatures.

Tempest irratico: when the weather changes constantly, inconsistently, unpredictably, and too fast to cope with it!

I was trying to get all the chickens fed and the eggs collected, but as fast as I put my coat on because it was raining, the sun was out and I was over-heating. This tempest irratico is for the birds!

permgrimage

[perm-gruh-mij]
(noun)

1. A journey or trip to an ecologically viable, profitable, and harmoniously managed farmscape or area, not for the primary purpose of purchasing agricultural goods or services, but rather as a quest for knowledge, beauty, and soul-satisfying understanding.

Person 1: "Yikes, Sepp Holzer charges a whopping € 130 to take a day trip to Krameterhof.  Polyface was free!  Should I go?"
Person 2: "Take the permgrimage.  Just be sure to bring back some of that perennial rye, okay?"

2. A visit to see or hear a well-known permaculture artisan or guru.

Person 1: "I'm taking a permgrimage here in Tennessee on May 14th for the 'Homesteaders Of America' conference, wanna' come?  Joel Salatin is doing a hands on broiler butchering demo."
Person 2: "Yeah, I saw that Justin Rhodes is doing a 2 hour presentation, too."

3. The path or process one takes starting at or from a conventional agriculturally sustained world-view, towards an ecologically regenerative lifestyle which benefits life in all its forms.  A figurative permaculture journey.

Person 1: "I can't believe that some permies on this forum would advocate using that chemical fertilzer, ANYWHERE!  That stuff is poison!"
Person 2: "Seriously, relax!  The permgrimage takes time!  You're on Paul's Eco-Level 6, and they're still on  Eco-Scale level 2. That's just where they are on their transition right now.  It's just like Mollison's chart in the PADM on page 5, you know?"
