One of the things that I like most about myself is my imagination. I did OK in school, just above the average - not too dumb to need teacher attention on my work but not well behaved enough to receive praise for the work I was doing like the smart kids.
I could tell many stories about times I stood up for what I felt was an unjust cause or I started revolutions just to fuck with those who tried to keep the small and week of my tiny classroom herd down.
Like the Calvin in the 'Calvin and Hobbes' cartoon, it took very little for me to drift into imaginative worlds and totally tune out the rest of the world. Tonight I had that same feeling just sitting here cruising through Tumblr.
This picture of 'girl with cat' immediately got me thinking of a female super spy with a cat that was rebuilt by the government to be an agent for the good guys.
I suspect my idea had to do with Ikea's idea to leave 100 cats in one of their overnight to see what furniture and notions they preferred. I totally imagined my bionic cat sneaking into corporations and research facilities over night to do spying. His tail would be about to connect him to mainframes and he would have additional stealth features added to his natural ones.
Just another on the pile of ideas. I swear, some days I feel like Stan Lee in my prolific output with the only distinction is he gets published and I continue to be kept down from the 'Man'.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
