Newsman - "Many Canadians like the warmer weather that comes with global climate change."
Mom (yelling from the kitchen) - "Won't somebody think of the Polar bears?" (I SO wish she had said - "Won't someone PLEASE think of the Polar Bears")
You should know also that she has only seen one episode of the Simpsons. The one about Australia, which I showed her before she left to visit my sister who lives there so my mother knew what to expect.
I remember she told my dad he wasn't getting any of those giant beers. When she left I told her not to get into trouble or they might have to 'boot' her in the ass. From that day she believes the Simpsons lied to her. That famous line by Mrs Lovejoy must have just seeped into her consciousness.
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.
