Lady Jag's Personal Horrorscope
for 
Wednesday, August 27, 2008

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving your dog only two of them.

Phil Pastoretm Newspaper Enterprise Assn.



 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Today you will discover a lot of money under your pillow! Unfortunately, it won't begin to cover the cost of the dentures that you will also discover a sudden need for.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

It would be best, if you abandoned the Fez. You aren't that type of person, and it's no use pretending.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

You need to do something about that nervous laugh. Practice an "evil laugh" and use that instead. Then at least, you'll be able to hear everyone else's nervous laughter.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

If you act now, you could be the first on your block to have an actual moat and a working drawbridge. Something to consider.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

A huge red balloon will float by you, today, being pursued by a small person of the French persuasion, and a film crew. If you wish to cause cross-cultural mirth, cross your eyes, talk in a high pitched voice, and whack yourself in the head with a baguette. Otherwise, don't.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Today you will be suddenly struck by what a genius Norman Rockwell was, and how unappreciated (in the major art circles) he remains. You will vow to do something about it.

Libra (September 22 - October 22)

Today you will bolt up from your bed, grinning like a maniac, and shout "labor omnia vincit!" (the motto of Oklahoma) in ringing heroic tones. This could be the start of something interesting...

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Uh oh. Mars is out of alignment, again. Not a good day to hang out with stupid, violent, heavily-armed ex-convicts. Save that for tomorrow.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You are being followed by a quiet, rugged man wearing cowboy boots, jeans, a large silver belt-buckle, a faded plaid flannel shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and a Carmen Miranda hat. Perhaps you should hurry.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)

You'll accidentally eat one of those fried Szechwan chili peppers today, and it will bring tears to your eyes. This will strike you as odd, given that you will be eating a ham sandwich at the time.

Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)

You will discover a bassoon player hiding in the shrubbery. That's not something you should try to deal with yourself -- call in the professionals.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Today you will have the eerie sensation that either you are going crazy or you are being watched by something indescribably evil. Luckily for you, you're in fine shape, mentally.

Otherwise, you're gonna need that string.

The Art of Poetry
 
  To gaze at a river made of time and water
And remember Time is another river.
To know we stray like a river
and our faces vanish like water.

To feel that waking is another dream
that dreams of not dreaming and that the death
we fear in our bones is the death
that every night we call a dream.

To see in every day and year a symbol
of all the days of man and his years,
and convert the outrage of the years
into a music, a sound, and a symbol.

To see in death a dream, in the sunset
a golden sadness--such is poetry,
humble and immortal, poetry,
returning, like dawn and the sunset.

Sometimes at evening there's a face
that sees us from the deeps of a mirror.
Art must be that sort of mirror,
disclosing to each of us his face.

They say Ulysses, wearied of wonders,
wept with love on seeing Ithaca,
humble and green. Art is that Ithaca,
a green eternity, not wonders.

Art is endless like a river flowing,
passing, yet remaining, a mirror to the same
inconstant Heraclitus, who is the same
and yet another, like the river flowing.

Jorge Luis Borges

Yak milk vodka!

I get it from a small brewery in Siberia and it's shipped here via the Berring strait.

This is all I got. Come and help me celebrate - and bring your baguettes.

MUTUAL ADMIRATION SOCIETY

We belong to a Mutual Admiration Society
My baby and me
We belong to a Mutual Admiration Society

I think he’s handsome and he’s smart
I thinks that she’s a work of art
I say that he’s the greatest man
And likewise I’m her biggest fan
I say her kisses are like wine
His kiss is just is good as mine
And that’s the way we pass the time of day
My baby and me
We belong to a Mutual Admiration Society

I say now you’re the sweetest one
I say, no you’re the sweetest one
She claims that I’m a natural wit
He says it’s just the opposite
The only fighting that we do is
Just who loves who more than who
And we go on like that from night til dawn
My baby and me
Oh, we belong to a Mutual Admiration Society

Now I do not exaggerate
I think she’s nothing short of great
I say that kind of flattery
Will get you any place with me
The way we carry on it tends
To just embarass all our friends
And that is how we’ll still be years from now
My baby and me
We belong to a Mutual Admiration Society
My baby and me
We belong to a Mutual Admiration Society
My baby and me

When I was a little child,
I had many friends.
Teasing went on forever
In fact, it never ends.

Dragon Lady came to us
One early summer morn
We liked to call her “Urasys”
We sometimes felt her scorn.

She never set an arduous pace
In fact, she was a little weighty
So as she passed, we called her name:
Urasys Dragon Lady!

Emily Dickinson - I'll send the feather from my Hat!

I'll send the feather from my Hat!
Who knows -- but at the sight of that
My Sovereign will relent?
As trinket -- worn by faded Child --
Confronting eyes long -- comforted --
Blisters the Adamant!
