Friday Blaque List 29

What I’m…

DOING

Perching high up in a tree in the woods, dry leaves swirling around me like confetti. The branches form an uncomfortable V around my butt, but this particular perch gives an incredible panoramic view of the forest.

I love writing & watching wildlife from up here – for as long as my butt can take it!

No wildlife-watching today, however. Have the goobies with me. 🙂

Mally‘s  jumping around & up in the air, trying to catch swirling leaves. But MegaDeath is yowling back at the wind, as if to say, “Yes, Mother Nature, I hear you. Now hear THIS!”

Nope, no wildlife-watching with the goobies around! 🙄

Have 2 other foster-goobies this week: Apache & Soldier. They’re twins (well, 2 of sextups, actually), the only survivors of a murderous ex-owner who killed their siblings, one by one.

What I’m…

WEARING

Bat piss & guano.

bat-in-tree-branches

It’s in my hair, on my shoulders, splattered across the back of my neck, and God knows where else.

.

WHY

We’re rescuing a colony of bats that got trapped in someone’s attic, and pooping is an animal’s fight or flight response to being captured.

But guess what?

It’s part of our fight or flight response, as well.

It’s why sometimes people get so scared they pee on themselves. Like my coworker just did because he’s never seen so many bats in person. I won’t talk about how hilarious it was to see his reaction when they all started flying around, grazing his head.

He’s in the van now, cowering.

Men. 🙄

Zecharia Sitchin’s “The 12th Planet

.

Thinking

That, not until extraterrestrials land, perform a plethora of humanly & scientifically impossible acts before our very eyes in broad daylight in every city on Earth simultaneously during rush hour wearing nothing but g-strings & nipple rings thru pierced purple nipples that shoot bluelight rays that liquify solid objects on contact then recomposes them slowly atom by atom, will we ever believe in aliens.

What I’m…

DOING

Eating.

The most luscious turkey/mozzarella/pesto/grilled tomato & zucchini panini ever created.

WONDERING

Why, when you’re stuffing face with gooey food & licking instead of wiping your fingers, a cute guy always pops up out of nowhere?

Is this, like a Murphy’s Law-type thing??

What I’m….

DOING

Reading.

Manners & Customs in the Bible” by Victor H. Matthews

.

LEARNING

1. That guys back then were required to wear beards or risk being branded unholy. Their beards had to be very long, and squared off at the bottom.

moses

I saw this in parts of Afghanistan. There was a booming business in selling fake beards for guys unable to grow their own long enough, or thick enough.

2. Harlots were required to go unveiled with their hair exposed in public, or risk torture and death by law. Which must mean that all other women wore veils with their hair covered in public

What I’m…

LISTENING TO

Blah Blah Blah (clean version). For the 900th time.

🙄

kid-dancing

My little niece has just discovered this song, and good luck trying to get her to listen to anything else.

(Excedrin Migraine, please? Anyone?)

.

DOING

Was trying to study, but apparently that’s not possible in the midst of a 6 year old and a cheesy pop song.

How do people with kids do this?

Every day??

What I’m…

DOING

Kind of freaking out, but trying instead to recapture an amazing feeling I had during an alarming dream.

girl-sleeping

.

WHY

A few nights ago I had a 2012 dream. I know, I know. It’s just a dream. Except it isn’t. My dreams often happen. Family thing. Inherited from ‘seer’ maternal grandmothers as far back as our family can remember.

But, here’s the thing about this particular dream: 4 family members and a ‘seer’ friend in Norway had nearly the same dream on the exact same night. My Norwegian friend actually called the day after I had the dream to tell me about her nearly identical dream. She also said a friend of hers in Kenya called on Tues. to tell of nearly the same dream members of her family had the night before.

AND I’ve received calls this week from overseas friends in Ireland, the Azores, and 2 different friends in India who don’t know each other about the same dreams they’ve had beginning on Sunday night. Continue reading

What I’m….

DOING

Laying out on the grass with two of my babies.

Oaky, 1 baby (Mally) & 1 monster-baby (yes, that would be MegaDeath).

.

WHY

Have a ton of studying to do, and thought it would be less chore-like doing it surrounded by nature and doggies.

THE REALITY

Fat chance.

Can’t concentrate on the intricacies of US/Middle East political policies while trying to keep my dog from devouring scampering squirrels and hopping bunnies!

What the hell was I thinking coming out here with a laptop & a MegaDeath??
