What an amazing list!

Merry Christmas Tom.

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

A dizzying array of images, viewed early this Christmas eve to the sound of traditional Celtic viol music.

So I myself am at least in part responsible for my own whirling brain.

Wishing you all the best, Tom ... the country itself, to say nothing of the species, seems to be beyond any wishing, best or otherwise.

Don at Lilliput ...

just awake for the day. i woke through a dream. a small alien spacecraft arrived and stopped in midair behind my mother's house. it extended a ramp and then another and then another, unfolding itself, duplicating its small aliens until it was a rather large manifestation of what (calmly, systematically) appeared to be an earth takeover. i was surprised at first, alarmed, as were others, but it took only moments for us to become docile and dough eyed, simply standing there waiting for whatever else might unfold.

i see this was a dream of reality. the aliens are amongst us. we are the aliens.

on another note, the dream morphed, and just before i awoke i was feeding an old woman her favorite lunch. her name was luna. her favorite lunch was alphaghetti. how far we have come!

but on the most serious note, love to you and yours. i hope a moment of profound holiness finds you))

I wonder if someone has investigated about the times guns have been a perk...(?)

manik sharma said...


At any rate "blow me a new hole to breath through" will become THE thing, if not a thing. Best wishes.

Merry Christmas, Tom!



Hilton said...

Make it a happy unpatriotic universally ridiculous lunatic holiday - and keep away from the cops.

TC said...

Many thanks, kind friends, and sorry to be a bit slow -- well, even slower than usual. It's that kind of time.

Nonetheless, Merry Christmas, Nin!

Don, small world, I've been having that whirling-dervish-brain too. Nothing so lovely as a Celtic viol as inspiration, but still, where there's brain-whirling, there must be hope... (?)

Erin, I had no idea. Not even dreams are free of capitalist branding and subtle incitements to violence, any more. Alpha-Getti, yet another casus belli. The Christmas star rises over Bedlam. And here I'd thought Murica was the only place where stuff like this was happening.

Dispute over Alpha-Getti leads to gunfire

Sandra, yesterday a two-year old toddler found her mum's gun in her purse while shopping at Walmart, and immediately used it to do what guns are meant to do... killed her mum. But here it's perfectly legal to carry a loaded gun in your purse and leave your purse in your shopping cart with your two-year old.

Manik, about the new breathing hole idea, I think it'll be THE thing. For everybody. Soon.

Billoo, gracias, and same-same to you...

Hilton, Good advice, and I've been obeying it to the letter... though these days the lunatic edge is a little bit difficult to maintain... demented drooling old person kept safely (?) off in corner -- perhaps closer to the true state of affairs. Ho-ho-ho.
