Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Will you ever reach Bora?

Dear All (A Christmas Call)

You may have noticed that your friend Blue has been neglecting you. Neglecting you and ignoring you. It's not because he's been ill (knock on wood, no not that wood!) or because he won the lottery and somehow forgot to mention this tiny little detail while luxuriating on Bora Bora and not forgetting how to write about himself in the third person singular (even though he still is somebody of no distinction). No, sir. No, ma'am. I've been neglecting you these past two months because bills need to be paid and this horned son of an elf convinced me to take on this project that needs to be finished one day from now and edited before January 8, the day when Elvis himselvis was born once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away in 1935.

But you have been in my thoughts — much more so than Star Wars VIII: The Sneaky Reboot. Which, admittedly, is not saying a lot unless you like Mary Poppins in Space, 40-minute subplots that don't matter except to spacehorses, hyped up Snoke and lightsaber flashback stuff that does matter but gets completely ignored, and self-proclaimed studio masterminds who dump the old, then proudly give themselves a Facebook thumbs-up because a weight has been successfully lifted and the pixel porn looks great — and I wish you all a merry little Christmas. Let your heart be light. From now on, our troubles will be out of sight. 

I will reboot myself and stalk you. Just not today or next week. How's that for the best news ever? And if you happen to bump into good ole Santa, would you please ask him to send me a self-help book on how not to waste my life or talent? Or maybe a Christmas tree?

Thank you.


P.S. But really, have yourselves a wonderful Christmas with all your loved ones, cats, rats and dogs included. Yes, Mongo, that includes you. Now, shut up and go to bed. (I'm talking to Mongo.)

* * *


  1. I am glad to hear that you are ok(ish) albeit crazy busy. I hope your project goes well and the editing is easy (queue hysterical laughter). And if Santa does give you that book - will you share it. Please. Pretty please.
    And yes, I hope that your Christmas is a joy.

  2. You still haven't got that done?
    Geez, they should send you to bora bora to have fun
    After months and months of work
    They need to give you a perk
    Hopefully a good Christmas is had
    With you, Angie and Mongo at your pad
    Could reboot it like star wars though
    If it goes only so so haha

    1. Merry X-mas at you mat, Pat. Santa seems to have stolen the comment I wrote the other day at the blue guy bay.

    2. Guess santa wanted to hide it away
      Making you reboot at your bay
      And with an X too
      Does it mark the spot at our zoo?

    3. That must be it
      Santa wanting the reboot um spit
      X marks the bill
      Making me ill
      Do you know what I mean
      At the Kitty Cat scene?

  3. We all get a little crazy busy this year.
    Have a blessed Christmas and see you next year!

    1. Thank you, Alex. Have a great one yourself. We sure are blessed to be lived and alive. Plus we still don't need botox. :)

  4. Did someone say Blue and Christmas in the same post? Well, here is one from me to you,

    and here is a tree for you...

    Merry Christmas Blue from True!

    1. I'll ha-ha-ve-uh blue Christmas without you... Song along, True!

    2. And when those blue snowflakes start falling
      That's when those blue memories start calling

      I hope you had yourself a very Merry Christmas Blue!

    3. It was merry, not blue, but still so much work to do :(

  5. I didn't feel neglected until you brought it up. Thanks a lot.


  6. Have a Merry Christmas, Blue Grumpster!

  7. Merry Christmas Wishes.

    All the best Jan

  8. I nope you and yours have a very nice Christmas Day and that your project gets done before the due date! Happy New Year too while we are at it!


  9. Nice to see you, Blue
    Been missing you
    Bora bora is an alternative
    Is sure is attractive
    Merry Christmas and feeling great
    Looking forward to a wonderful 2018


    1. Thanks for those kind words, Hank. We'll stay in touch!

  10. I suppose you are chugging down your "figgy pudding" on this "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" day. Thanks for addng that phrase. Love that tune.
    I didn't think you were ill........................or dead. No euphenisms for this old broad. I often go for months between posts.....just because. There's a lot to get in, so little time to do it. That's all.
    Merry Christmas

    1. Euphenisms are like some people that I know: they are full of shit. See, I hate euphenisms, too, as does Scooby Doo. Now, if you could ask Santa where he put my blue suede shoe...

      Merry Christmas, Belva.

    2. Glad you're back. I was getting worried.

      Looks like I liked the new Star Wars flick a lot more than you did.

    3. I'm jealous of you. HERE is a serious in-depth review of the movie and I couldn't agree more.

      Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

  11. I hope you had a great Christmas Blue! Nice to see you!

  12. That's ok . . . . but don't so it again, or I'll rap your knuckles!!!! . . . lol

    Merry Christmas, Blue
    And a great big, "You Who!"
    But one thing I hate
    I've put on some weight!!!

    Happy New Year
    and may there be no tear.

    Cheers . . .
    Clinking glasses of Mulled Wine
    A drink that's ever so fine!
    May 2018 to you be magic
    And not in the least tragic.

    Eddie :)

    1. Will Eddie find a way
      To lose those pounds at his bay?
      May 2018 be grand and keep us sane
      Don't think you're Bruce Wayne
      Or Peter Parker
      Don't turn into a furry barker
      Don't say meow, too,
      Unless you're Scooby Doo
      Wait, I've lost my mind too soon
      Let's go to the moon!

  13. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Blue! Wishing you and your family lots of love and happiness in the new year xoxo

    1. It was a good one. Didn't meet my deadline so I was kinda stressed, but that didn't keep your blue friend from smiling. Hope your Christmas was grand.

  14. A bit late to wish you a Merry Christmas, but I hope you have an awesome new year!

    1. It's never too late for words of kindness :) Thank you for stopping by, Loni.

  15. So was it finished one day from then and edited before January 8?

    A late Merry Xmas to you and yours!

    1. I wish :( No holidays for me, Az. Better luck next time. Thanks for asking, though.


Speak your mind.
