Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored" on this, our third anniversary! Gosh! We've lasted longer than a lot of marriages! It must be the great sex.
Hard to believe that three years ago I sat down at this computer and defied all of my previous illiteracy long enough to start this blog.
I've had a lot of great adventures since April 14, 2005. My daughters and I have gotten to know the Monkey Man. I joined a fabulous Druid Grove. I've been to two Fairie Festivals and three East Coast Vulture Fests.
I've interviewed many fabulous bored gods and goddesses: Asherah, Baal, Epona, Mannanan MacLir, Sedna, Chac, and many, many more! All but Mars were quite polite and disinclined to stain my furniture.
My faeries, Puck, Princess, and Aine have contributed their own mayhem to the site. And once and awhile when I'm away, some whiner named "Mr. Applegate" comes and complains about his job.
Never hear me complaining about my job, do you? That's because I don't have one! Thank you, Mr. George W. Bush! Soon you won't have a job either. (What a lovely thought!)
Writing this web log has been a joy for me, a way to make myself laugh and to stick it to the morons out there. Who are the morons? They're people who don't agree with me! Hey. I'm human. And this is my blog. If you don't like me, you can call me a moron on your blog. Which is gonna happen any day, when the fundies catch up with "The Gods Are Bored."
I think the very best part of "The Gods Are Bored," for me, has been all the comments I've gotten from you readers. I love making you laugh, and getting your advice, and hearing from you. Someone proposed marriage to me via email. Another person wondered where to get vulture feathers for religious purposes. I got invited to be on a kick-ass Appalachian web site. I got a "Thinking Blogger" award.
I have even met two of my readers, Hecate and the Wandering Hillbilly. Over the coming year I would love to meet more of you, because I've never had as many friends as I have from writing this site.
So if you want more wicky-wacky-wackadoo mayhem, more essential upholstery maintenance tips, more sensuous writing about ancient diet colas, and more righteous indignation about the Yahweh Oligarchy, join me in 2008! We've got magic to do, just for you!
