Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!"
Mistress Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and silver bells,
And silver bells all in a row.....
Wait a minute. That isn't right. I think Mistress Mary grew lots of stuff in her garden. What a boring garden she would have if it only had silver bells! And if that's true for a garden, isn't it true for religion as well? Become a polytheist! Then you'll get your cockle shells, at least. Maybe you'll pass on the pretty maids all in a row. (Maybe you won't.)
We at "The Gods Are Bored" are celebrating several milestones today.
1. My daughter The Heir has now formally enrolled in college. She will be Class of 2012. And since she had the nerve to choose her own school and bypass all of my brilliant recommendations, I am going to send her to Appalachian State University for purposes of this blog. Go Mountaineers!
2. My daughter The Spare just had her 14th birthday yesterday. We had a party for her at home, 15 rowdy 8th graders, all screeching at the top of their lungs. Decibel the Parrot was in hog heaven. He thought he'd finally found a worthy flock.
The Heir will graduate from Snobville High School in June. The Spare will be paroled from Middle School. Decibel the Parrot, now 22 years of age, is not graduating from anything. You can have him if you want him.
And now ... drum roll ...
3. The Gods Are Bored is celebrating its third anniversary!
More on the latter later. I've just been called to Woodstock Trading Company to evaluate two more crawlspace kittens. I sure hope I don't have to bring them home for bottle-feeding!
