Magical Arts Based on Nature

The Druid prophecy which was thought to be predestination, said that she would reach the sky, but things didn’t work out they way she thought they would, and now she is in a limbo state between being a girl and being part of a tree.  She didn’t believe in magic, but seeing herself in this transformed situation has reinforced her trust in the old ways and now she realizes that she must fulfill the prophecy so that she can go back to her normal life again.  This prophecy stated that she had risk death by jumping off a cliff covered in feathers in an attempt to fly.  As she jumped, she sang, “Feathered birds fly when they are protected by the gods, there is a chance I will die, but I also could fly, what are the odds?”

Living On the Red Planet

We don’t have the technology for terraforming Mars yet and turning this hostile planet into one that will support life, but there are some good ideas floating around.  One of the big problems with Mars is that it is basically a desert world, with a pitifully thin atmosphere less than 1 percent the density of Earth’s, so no animal can live on Mars and water quickly evaporates or freezes on the surface.  People have said that we could live in caves on Mars under the surface, if we are wearing space suits and that we could construct cities under glass.  Since the solar wind is responsible for depleting  Mars’ atmosphere, some scientists think that we could construct electromagnetic satellites to shield Mars’ atmosphere and this would prevent it from escaping into space.  Theoretically a giant magnetic shield could protect Mars from solar winds, and this would help terraform the Martian environment so that liquid water flows on the surface once again.

Mr. Peabody

It is hard enough to believe in a talking dog, but a canine that created his own time machine just so that he could give his adopted 7-year-old human son Sherman a firsthand look into history, is nearly impossible.  I guess it becomes a bit more believable if you take into account that Hector J. Peabody is the most accomplished canine in the world, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, a world-renowned explorer, and an Olympic gold medalist in the long jump and the decathlon, but in reality, he is just an anthropomorphic cartoon that lives in a penthouse in New York City.  Peabody and Sherman go on time traveling adventures together in the WABAC machine, sort of like Bill and Ted did in their most excellent adventures, but without getting stoned.

Kiss Me with Those Fuzzy Lips

Uncle Steve went to the zoo with his brother Joe and his family.  It was a lovely day, but Joe’s wife Kathie never liked Steve being around her children, 6-year-old Christine and 4-year-old Billy, because he was an incorrigible character that would forever be a bachelor, because no good woman would ever have him.  Kathie had a look of disgust on her face when they went to visit the giraffes and Steve said, “Kiss me with those fuzzy lips”, so she ushered the kids away and said, “Let’s go visit the gorillas, that should be fun.”  Steve laughed and told his brother, “Doesn’t she look stunning and you know how much I have always preferred a full-grown bush over a trimmed pussy.”   Joe told his brother, “I know all of your stories about your mustache rides and I just wish that you could behave better around the kids.”  Steve seemed to be confused and he asked Joe, “What did I say that was so wrong, it is not like I was talking about a Dirty Sanchez?  We should get a couple of beers before we catch up to your family.”

I Would Love to Love Her

Rhiannon looks to the sky to see a bird in flight.  All her life she has always been in tune with nature, taken by the wind and I’ve never seen her move.  She watches a cat cloud in the sky, ready to swallow a fish and she promised me heaven.  The fish is swimming to its mother for protection, will it ever win?  A monkey looks down on her satisfied that everything is right in this world where nothing is real, but everything is happy even when they descend into darkness.  She rules her life like a fine skylark when the sky is starless.  The woman has been taken by the wind, so she rings like a bell through the night, to tell me she wants to be my lover.  Will I ever win?  My dreams unwind, they have become a state of mind, oh Rhiannon.

Blitzen Interview

If you want to know what is the real Santa is like, we got it straight from the reindeer’s mouth and this little cutie is not holding back any punches, giving us the dope on the guy in the red suit, how his wife doesn’t really bake any cookies and how Rudolph got his nose to be so bright.  Blitzen is here with us today on Channel 3 as we take a trip up to the North Pole and everything is melting because of global warming.  It appears that Santa is down in Bermuda today on a well-deserved vacation, but he is keeping to his schedule, by having his sleigh in for repairs and a tune up.  He is also having a hole repaired in his magical toy sack, but Blitzen isn’t letting us know how that thing actually works.  Mrs. Claus is busy purchasing sugarplum cookies that are actually made by Donkin Donuts, but don’t let anyone know who let the cat out of the bag on that one.  Blitzen revealed that Rudolph has a high density of mucous glands in his nasal passages and that when his nose isn’t shining brightly, it is dripping snot all over the place.  Thanks for ruining my lunch today, Blitzen.

Imagine My Surprise

I forgot that my water had been shut off because I was late paying my bill and when I woke up this morning I headed straight for the toilet.  Ranger hates the noise made by the landscapers when they cut the grass, but I never expected to find her hiding inside of the toilet bowl and hey, I had to go really bad.  I filled her treat bowl and showed it to her and she climbed out of the toilet.  This can’t be a cozy place for her, but it is only natural to hide from danger and I guess that cats will hide out any place where they feel protected.  It is scary and confusing for her when she hears the lawnmowers, and even though they come every week, I don’t think that she will ever get used to these scary monsters being outside of her home.

She has always seemed to think that the bathroom was a nice place for her to play in and when I went in there and closed the door, she would meow and scratch on the door to be let in.  If she can’t be by me, she feels like she is missing out on some fun.  She seems to know that I am trapped in there for at least a few minutes and this makes it easier for her to get my attention.  Going into the bathroom with me has become part of her routine and she seems to enjoy the smells that linger in there.  She enjoys playing with the toilet paper roll and sticking her claws into my bathroom rugs and rolling around on them and she has created many disasters there.

Nocturnal Omnivore

Many people have said that I look a lot like the baby Aye-Aye, but I don’t see the resemblance.  OK we have the same hair and it has a lot more hair on its head than I do, but that is where the comparison ends.  I guess that if I would comb the little hair that I have left once in a while, then I wouldn’t look all that unkept, but I don’t see the point.  Some people say this animal is creepy, but actually the baby Aye-Aye is much cuter than I am with those dreamy green eyes.  I am not sure if this is a male or a female, but it has a perfectly clear creamy complexion and those incredibly haunting ears that I just want to tug on, along with a smile that would light up any room.

You and Me Against the World

Jake said, “I am so glad that I found you as I wasn’t sure that I would see you again.  You were right behind me and then I looked back and didn’t see you anymore.”  Judy replied, “Yea I had to take care of some business and I knew that I could catch up with you.  I wanted to leave a signal just in case any others of our species are looking for us, so I dropped some of my scent back there.  I figured rather than pooping randomly, we could drop our aroma at strategic locations.”  Jake said, “That was very social of you Judy, but I think we are on our own on this alien planet.  We have to be careful here, as you never know how much information will be revealed about us from a good sniff of our poop or urine.  I know that I have picked up a lot of unique scents since we arrived here yesterday.  No one is coming for us, we left that world behind and we should probably be doing our business underground from now on, to keep our selves safe from predators.  It is just you and me against the world now kid.”

Here is Your Hug

Many times, words are insufficient and you just have to hug it out.  I love this shared experience, where we are both giving and receiving affection.  It took me some time to learn dog language, as it is different from my feline dialect and this is the first dog that I ever got friendly with.  Everyone gives off certain signs when they’re having a bad day and with this guy being man’s best friend and the person not being around, I have to step up and give him some of the attention that he is craving.  Our owner went on a trip again and the walker will come to take this fellow out, but I have been here a lot longer than this newbie and basically, I don’t crave attention.  I will let the human pet me from time to time, but I prefer my own smell, and I am very independent.

The pet sitter will change my water and clean my litter box and give me food to eat and that is all that I need.  This little guy is not the brightest bulb on the tree, but as long as he doesn’t start peeing on everything, I am sure that he will be OK and we will make it till our owner gets back.  This dog is in his own world and he doesn’t have a clue what is going on in life which makes me so glad that I was born a cat.  I will never understand that barking thing that he does, dogs can be the most annoying animals on Earth and he never gives himself a bath, like hey what is up with that?
