Enter My Tin Foil Hat Contest!

Oh, sure. We've all been there. Trying to stop aliens or the Government or whoever from reading our thoughts. Or even more importantly, trying to stop them from reading our cat's thoughts.

But tin foil hats are not what they used to be! For example, now there's a handy-dandy, easy to use, multi-pack of tin foil hats especially designed for kitties! Her Royal Highness has instructed me to stockpile a few caselots of these in The Bunker (shhhh, its location is a secret) so she won't run out during the coming End Times.

And I'm going to up my own game too. No more ugly, crinkled, half-assed tin foil hats for me! I'm going high fashion, baby!

Well, maybe I won't go quite this high fashion though . . . too girly-girl for me. I don't want to compromise my lesbian street cred.

But I have always looked rather fetching in a fedora, if I do say so myself . . . .

The Viking Board of Directors over at Dr. Spo's blog recommend the following model but I don't want to be accused of cultural appropriation by wearing one. Those vicious Social Justice Warrior types are everywhere with their mean accusations! They skeer me.

I hear that all Trump's red hats are, in fact, lined with tin foil. He's no fool, you know.

Hey, I just spontaneously had a great idea while writing this post!

Let's have a Tin Foil Hat Contest!

Create your very own tin foil hat and email me a selfie of you wearing it to tinfoilhatcontest@gmail.com -- contest will close in two weeks time at midnight on Tuesday, April 9th, 2019.

[Yes, I created a special email account just for this contest. I don't want to use my personal email address because there are just too many crazies out there whether or not they wear tin foil hats, amirite?]

Or, if you'd prefer, email me a photo of your pet wearing a tin foil hat. Good luck putting it on!

This contest is open only to official followers of this blog! In your email, please identify yourself, say whether you follow me on Google or Bloglovin, and provide a link to your own blog. I reserve the right to refuse any entry at my sole discretion.

All accepted entries will be posted on my blog, along with the creator's blog handle and blog link. And at the end, there will be awards in various categories, none of which I've figured out yet, but hey -- just trust me! Hahahahaha, that's an inside joke, as you well know. TRUST NO ONE.

E-books or Bound Books? And What About Audio Books?

Technology has definitely changed how we consume books.

I still prefer to read a traditional bound book, if possible. But sometimes the print is so very, very small that my poor old eyes can't cope.

In that case, I will download the e-book version so I can increase the font size to a readable level. I use a Kindle app on my iPad for this purpose. I don't own an e-Reader per se.

My Rare One consumes audio books at an astonishing rate. She loves audio books because she can multitask while listening to them.

She downloads them from the public library to her iPhone. These days she directs the audio from her iPhone through her Smart Speaker so it is easily heard throughout her house as she works.

And what about you?

How do you do the bulk of your reading?

Do you have strong preferences one way or the other?

Happy Eostre / Ostara!

Today is the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere -- the first official day of Spring! In pagan tradition, it is the date sacred to the Goddess named Eostre or Ostara. Her sacred animal is, of course, the fabulously fertile rabbit, prolific creator of new life after the long sleep of winter.

And what a long, hard winter it's been!
We're all looking a little . . . harried . . . by it, aren't we?

Time to put on our Spring Finery!

Maybe even indulge in some Bunny Bling!

Don't let life get you down!
Be creative!

Enjoy whatever pampering you can get!

And never miss an opportunity for a snuggle!

Happy Irish Heritage Day!

Thank Gawd and the Baby Jesus that I have Irish blood so I can make fun of the Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

Hey, don't give me your politically-correct gimlet eye. Them's the Rules of the Game and you know it!

Oh, thought I couldn't work superheroes into this post? Well, think again!

And Now, Equal Time

Further to Wednesday's meme post about Jesus, and in the interest of fair and balanced reporting on this blog, here's a meme post about The Competition.

People! This is why spelling is important!

Even Satan has to make a living, I guess.
Say, I hope Jesus doesn't fill up His Honda Accord here --

Are people really getting worse and worse?
Satan knows!

Of course, there's always the 
good ol' evil reliables 
to keep Satan in business!

And, every once in awhile,
a special delivery!

Keep your eye on him, Jesus,
he's a slippery bastard!

Hey, Jesus Loved a Good Joke!

Especially ones at His own expense! Jesus was cool that way.

Yes, that's my belief and I'm sticking to it.

So now, let's get this meme show on the road!
The road to Galilee!

Water always figured prominently in Jesus' life . . . 

. . . but only for walking, not for drinking.

But of course, Jesus would never drink and drive.
And speaking of which, exactly 
what kind of car would Jesus have driven?

This one's just in bad taste.

And this one too, so to speak.

And howzabout Simon Peter?
It was not easy to be Jesus' BFF!

Remember, we must always ask ourselves --
What Would Jesus Do?

He'd do this:

Now go ye and do likewise.

But be sure to come back here on Friday,
when we'll have a meme post from The Competition.
