Baby, It's Cold Outside!
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!"
Oh, the weather outside is frightful...
IN THE ARCTIC NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE!
Yes, fans! Thanks to your bold petitions to the bored goddess SEDNA, the measure for drilling for black gold in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge has been STRIPPED from its hiding place in the congressional budget bill and DEEP SIXED OUT THE TEXAS WAZOO!
Accepting this reprieve on behalf of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Sedna simply wiped away a tear and said, "You love me! You really love me!"
In gratitude for all your prayers and attention, the bored goddess Sedna invites you to join her in a 90-day period of feasting on pecan pie, onion rings, Swiss chocolates, and -- for the Wolverine fans -- CONEYS!
(I'll bet you thought she'd offer beef jerky and whale blubber. Not on this occasion!)
We here at "The Gods Are Bored" will keep you informed if any stinkin' politician tries some slick move, like shoving that bad idea back into a bill that otherwise protects homeless kittens and mandates maximum crab catches in the Chesapeake Bay.
But for now, let's celebrate! Gee! Haw! Where's my coney?
FROM ANNE and SEDNA
HUMBLE MERLIN, AWESOME GODDESS
