So Much Stuff

Trying to organize my brain, and you, Lucky Reader, get to see what's in it! I'm leaving out health/family stuff, as that's largely been addressed already.

Political Yakkity Yak



(Not cutting this one, it's short.)

I've spoken before about the bafflement I have with "one trick pony people." Of late, this has come to be annoying me more and more in regards to politics. As time has gone on, various people who used to be interesting, multi-faceted personalities whom I found to be stimulating and engaging, seem to have dropped subject by subject until all they talk about any more is politics. Some are righties, some are lefties, but all sound remarkably similar: "Our guys are kind of disappointing, sure, but at least they aren't the criminal thugs of the other side!" When "our guys" are out of power, they're bravely trying to defend the last vestiges of truth, patriotism, and virtue against the relentless tide of know-nothing thuggery that's gripped those ignorant sheep of the electorate. When "our guys" are in power, the country is FINALLY returning to the common sense it always had deep down but was just too afraid to express because speaking out will get you blackballed. Now let's just hope it's not too late.

Blah, blah, yakkity yakkity. Honestly, can't you talk about anything ELSE instead of just singing the same tune over and over?

Three Is a Magic Number

Important Note: Don't read too much into this post. The song was in my head and I thought it would be fun to write it down. There are no Little Gneeches on the way or anything of that sort.

Three is a magic number
Yes it is, it's a magic number
Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity
You get three
as a magic number

The past and the present and the future
Faith and Hope and Charity
The heart and the brain and the body
Give you three
as a magic number

It takes three legs to make a tripod
or to make a table stand
It takes three wheels to make a ve-hicle
called a tricycle

Every triangle has three corners
Every triangle has three sides
No more, no less
You don't have to guess
When it's three you can see
It's a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family,
and that's a magic number

Three-six-nine
twelve-fifteen-eighteen
twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven
thirty

Three times ten is thirty
three times nine is twenty-seven
three times eight is twenty-four
three times seven is twenty-one
three times six is eighteen
three times five is fifteen
three times four is twelve, and
three times three is nine, and
three times two is six
And three times one is three of course

Now take the pattern once more:
Three! (Three-six-nine)
Twelve! (Twelve-fifteen-eighteen)
Twenty-one! (Twenty-one, twenty-four, twenty-seven)
Thirty!

Three times ten is thirty
three times nine is twenty-seven
three times eight is twenty-four
three times seven is twenty-one
three times six is eighteen
three times five is fifteen
three times four is twelve, and
three times three is nine, and
three times two is six
And three times one — what is it?
Three!
Yeah, that's a magic number

A man and a woman had a little baby
Yes, they did
They had three in the family
That's a magic number

Who is your favorite lady detective from movies, books, or TV?


It has to be Miss Marple as played by Margaret Rutherford. Interesting thing is, she's "completely wrong" from a Christie fan viewpoint, but purist that I usually am I actually prefer the wrong version.

Second runner up and strong contender, Velma Dinkley!
