This, That, And The Other

THIS is what happens when you Google post title ideas looking for clever images to add to your boring post ideas. Just when you think you know all that there is to know about Viggo Mortenson.  You discover he is a spoken word recording artist.  Seriously, I never thought of Aragon as a treehugger.  Ah, yes, the album referenced in this post’s title is “dedicated to all trees, living or dead, inhabited or not.”

THAT belief about yawns being contagious is totally true.  As you may already know, I unconditionally love elephants, but just looking at this made me yawn.

AND THE OTHER:  Well, what do you know?  This post has to be the most random ever turned out to be my usual absofuckinglutely fabulous.  I might make this a regular late-night-I-ought-to-post-something-before-bedtime-series.

Straight But Not Narrow

Yes, I am an ally.  Come out, come out, wherever you are.

Someday the open-minded will let love rule the world.  Support love.

I have been a Lenny Kravitz fan from the moment I heard this song, and I have always associated it with supporting equality.  Coincidentally, this song is always his answer when asked, “If God asked you to play a song for him, what one would it be?”

What a concept.

Good Grief!

I neglected to mention that we no longer have Three Beotches.  Kittle, the youngest pussy, unexpectedly passed away a little over two weeks ago.  While she was 11ish years old, she was very healthy.  The vet seems to think that she went into cardiac arrest based on some symptoms Boog had witnessed a couple of days prior to finding her lifeless body.  She is the first pet we have lost as a couple.  I dislike it more than I can verbalize at the moment.  It hurts.  Period.

Before I go any further, please note that if anyone sends me a link to “The Rainbow Bridge” I will rip you a new one.

While our lives have been disrupted, we are slowly moving on.  Xora and Pekoe are not.  In fact, they are rather distressed if you ask me.   Yes, non-pet owners, pet grief is real. We are doing our best to give them individual attention and reassurance; however, this has been a challenge with their undeniable fear and loathing of The Holy Terrors.  While they have not always been the most sociable cats, Xora and Pekoe are searching, crying out (yowling and meowing incessantly), and pining for Kittle.  There appear to be some sleep pattern changes, loss of interest in favorite activities, sulking and separation anxiety, depression, and eating pattern changes.   Both weight and hair loss and inappropriate toileting are also evidenced.   In a nutshell, they are mourning.  We can only hope that time will heal their wounds and silence their increased vocalization.  I do not know how much more of this “chatter” I can take and am considering using a little music to soothe the savage beasts breasts in the next room.

How is this for a little rainbow connection?

“Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.”

Racing And Pacing And Plotting the Course

I am usually not a countdown educator.  I love making a difference.  However, this school year has been onerous to say the very least.

So yeah, a countdown follows:

  • 21 days with students
  • 54 possible food fights
  • 22 days with teachers
  • 28 days with The D (as in Dysfunctional) Team

Victory is mine!  Muahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Go see Shutter Island.  See my one-word movie review above.   If you have read the Dennis Lehane novel, worship Scorsese, or adore Leonardo DiCaprio, you will not be disappointed.

Shhhhhhhhhh! There will be no spoilers from CV!

Besides, the soundtrack is phenomenal.

Welcome to Bodacious! What’s Your Theme?

The very bodacious Citizen Janey has done it again.  She is making me think way too hard for this little blog 0′ mine, but I am going to let it shine.

Channel Ally McBeal she says.

Highlight my own bodaciousness she says.

The assignment given last week was to write about my personal theme song.

What a preposterous challenge for an audiophile!  Music speaks to my soul.  What one song speaks for my soul?

PTI … I am listening to the mumbles inside my head …

I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place.

These lyrics are so much like my life and this blog … a song about slowly losing your mind and embracing the insanity.  

Does that make me crazy?

Besides, people don’t take geniuses seriously unless they are insane. 

Come on now, who do you, who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha bless your soul
You really think you’re in control

Maybe I’m crazy
Maybe you’re crazy
Maybe we’re crazy

Uh, uh

Keep visiting I Read Banned Books, never forgetting that I am the Resident Psycho Hose Beast.  Crazy doesn’t even begin to cover it.

One more thing:  Free Day Passes for anyone who gets the title reference.  I got your crazy.
