Get a Move On, Leester!

Ach, running late again! Rainy morning, completely overcast, still dark when I woke up–so I went back to sleep.

I always try to put up the first two blog posts of the day before I eat my breakfast. No can do today! Mouse’s batteries kaput. So I had to rush out in the rain to our friendly Indian store (because this little store has everything! The owner is a genius) and get some batteries. Happily, that made everything work.

And I found the hymn, Morning Has Broken, to be just exactly the medicine my spirit needed.

It’s late, again I have to play catch-up… but let’s have breakfast first.

‘Welcome to Caitlin Middle School’ (2015)

I wrote this as an over-the-top satire seven years ago, and now it’s for all practical purposes literally true. I hate it when that happens.

Welcome to Caitlin Middle School

I didn’t understand this then and I sure as hell don’t understand it now. Why do people whom you’d swear were sane suddenly start babbling about pronouns and insist that boys are girls and girls are boys. I am very sure there’s an evil purpose behind it.

*Sigh* This is not as funny as it used to be.

‘Morning Has Broken’

I don’t know about you, but the beauty of this hymn brings me near to tears every time I hear it–Morning Has Broken, sung here by Orla Fallon.

When God finished His work, he called it very good.

Somewhere in each and every one of us there is a longing for that Creation as it was.

We Call It Puppy Love

C’mon, you’ve gotta love puppies! (Even mud puppies? Well, all right…)

Watch the puppy who has a whole roomful of toys strewn all over the floor–but only wants the one he can’t reach. We know some people like that, don’t we?

Memory Lane: Disgusting Playground Songs

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts - Drawception

Phoebe has already given us the lyrics to “I’m Gonna Go Eat Worms,” and that just naturally called to mind two other gross-out songs of childhood.

Jars and jars of green and gooshy gopher guts,/ concentrated monkey meat, percolated birdie feet,/ all wrapped up in green and purple porpoise-pus… All right, enough already, I don’t want to lose my job. So I won’t reproduce the lyrics of “Never Laugh When a Hearse Goes By.” You probably know them already, anyhow.

I have heard these songs from people who came from different states all over the country, with minor variations galore. Playground songs, I guess you’d call ’em. You could probably crank a genuine folklore thesis out of it. (“Teacher is a friend of mine, she resembles Frankenstein…”) Oy, the memories!

I’ll bet you could get a degree in this stuff.

SloJo: More ‘Threats to Democracy’

Here she is, threatening democracy

So, Xi Jin Ping’s Chicoms are okay, but Italy’s new prime minister–democratically elected, by the way: but we won’t get into that–Giorgia Meloni is yet another “threat to democracy” ( Yowsah! All over the world, SloJo Biden says, “democracy is at stake.”

“You’re going to think this is a little out of whack,” said Biden–yeah, he got that right–“but… democracy is at stake” because Italians don’t want to be bossed around by the World Economic Forum.

What does this babbling buffoon even mean by “democracy”? He sides with weirdo globalists against the rest of us–the ones the globalist big shots call “useless eaters”–and writes off half the population of the United States–we think it’s quite a bit more than half–as “semi-fascists” and, you guessed it, “a threat to democracy.”

Doesn’t like us much, does he?

Hey, Joe! We like our nations and we want to keep them! You can keep your global government. Nobody wants it but you and your billionaire buddies.

We’ll see how much “democracy” we get in next month’s midterm elections. We know the Democrats are going to cheat. The only question is how successfully.

Getting Kids to Eat Bugs

Chow time, come and get it! (Hey, where did John Kerry go?)

“United Kingdom Research and Innovation,” UKRI for short and “N.I.C.E. in That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis, is experimenting with adding “worms, locusts, and flies” to children’s diets in Africa (

But don’t go thinking this is just another exercise in neocolonialism. Heavens no! A UKRI/NICE spokescreature (is his name Renfield?) says it’s “likely” they’ll start it up back home in Britain, once they’ve got “proof” that eating creepy-crawlies is good for you. Just try it out on Africans first, in case there’s a problem.

Is this another way of saying “Who cares what happens to a bunch of Africans?”

Listen up, you plebs! There’s not enough nice meat to go around, so we’re going to keep it to ourselves and feed you on tasty flies and nice, juicy spiders!

Satan doesn’t just want to destroy us. He wants to degrade us first, so that Hell can laugh at us.

I Am *Really* Tired

Worn out iguana | Our Reptile Forum

The weather here has abruptly gone from quite warm to uncomfortably chilly. It was still dark when I woke up this morning, and I went back to sleep. So I’m late.

Don’t expect too much from me today. I will do my best, I will give it all I’ve got… Oh, to be a lad of 60 again!

(Go to the bank. Go to the store. Start typing new chapter set. Generate blog posts…)

I need a couple of grandchildren. Now I understand why Grandpa was so happy to have us around. Oh, he loved us–but we also came in very handy on days like this.

Just in time for Columbus Day! You just can’t go wrong by not giving any of these books as gifts.

Honest, you can learn a lot by not reading any of these! Imagine the pleasure of being able to look back over the years and say, “Y’know, I never did read Heaven Is All About Y-O-U…
