But I do celebrate Shrove Tuesday better known as Pancake Tuesday. It was the best because it was the day in our house when you could could be guaranteed a huge feed of pancakes and my mother made the best rubbery ones in the world. So many ways to have them with all the topping available. Or you could go old school with just maple syrup. It was the start of Lent which I do not observe because it involves deprivation of something you really, really like in your life. 40 days is a freakin' long time to go without my Diet Pepsi or a chocolate bar daily. Hershey is my favorite right now because I can't get my beloved Rocky Road bar here in the Tundra. I could try the chocolate bar thing but it's such a nice thing at night to snack on. Cold - just out of the freezer.
I need to also re-order my Bubble Gum Cigars.
They are the best treat from my past.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
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.
