Meet the new mascot!


“Hello friends!” Yeah, I found this pretty girl on a bad taxidermy site. Duh. I wasn’t actually looking for bad taxidermy, I was looking for nice pictures of weasels (as you do).

Like this one. That tumblr claims ‘mustela’ means ‘long mouse’. I can see that.

I absolutely freaking hate politics at the moment, so I’ve been avoiding the whole thing in favor of chicken blogging. I hate every single one of the candidates, I hate all the issues. I hate that the infighting is nastier than the outfighting. I’m going to hate the next POTUS. Oh, and I have a sneaking suspicion Britain is staying in the EU, which I hate.

When it comes to politics, I consider myself a happy poo-flinging monkey. And I am not happy right now.

Just because you are in a bad mood is no reason to take it out on us. Now show us a nice chicken photo or I’m telling Uncle Badger.

Stoatie, you might benefit (or might not) from a smidgen of expectations management. For decades now, I have been expecting the ongoing apocalyptic/satanic political and governmental trends to take us all straight to Hell. When we don’t end up quite there, and “only” a few steps closer, I can take this to be Good News.

This is, of course, a cop-out. But it also keeps me sane. Or at least less insane than I otherwise would be under these trying circumstances.

Some weirdo-ette was recently reported to have married a large rock. She ought to be considered a political trend-setter. Right now, having a large rock occupy the White Hut is a quite attractive prospect.

But enough of that. Keep the terrific chikkin posts coming!

In the meantime, I’ll go talk to Skandia Recluse. I read your book, Taste of Imagination. Read it on Kindle Unlimited, so I don’t know how you get paid for that. But I also bought Twelve Days at L5.

Charlie about broke my heart, and I think you should rewrite it as a screen play. I was casting it even as I read it. And it’s a story with a limited set, which would make it uncomplicated to stage/film (in my opinion). But I enjoyed ALL the stories and will work my way through your other books.

I’ve been using Vivaldi web browser lately (from the former makers of Opera browser). It lets you have tiled thumbnails of your favourite websites on the start page (they call it ‘speed dial’).

I just updated my SWeasel thumbnail to Zombie Weasel, heh :+)

That image is an accurate representation of my current state of mind.

Deborah HH, thank you for the nice report. The short stories mostly just write themselves. It is almost like I have no control over it. I get an idea, and the words just flow, and then they just stop. I’m very happy you enjoyed the stories.

I don’t know how to write a screenplay.

I thought the majority favored leaving the EU? With all the terrorist attacks and the fact that the little shits were scoping out sites to blow up in the UK, I’m surprised you brits dont want to get back control of your borders.

We do, Ric Fan – or, at least, the intelligent ones do.

Sadly, the media and the gummint are running Project Fear. You really wouldn’t believe some of the lies they are telling about the horrors that would befall us if we went back to flying solo. Sadly, there are sufficient idiots who do believe them.

Holy Krep!! [wipes coffee off keyboard and monitor] That pic is… well… wow.

Reminds me of a biker dude I used to run with, long ago.

Yes there are sufficient idiots everywhere, it seems, in order to keep the status quo in power. I think they put something in the water. Or the food. Maybe it’s the subliminal messages on tv.

Where did I put that bottle of single malt?

Bit spooky, that –

Away altogether for a few days to deal with some economic and social issues of a local nature, and I check back in to…find a bad likeness of Bucky Katt from the Get Fuzzy! comic strip…think I’m very glad that you next-up are back to chooks pics; I’ll hie meself over there for the nonce – or, mayhap, the next several nonces, actually.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
