The Next In Line

All of them had open mouths. Theirs was a perpetual screaming. They were dead and they knew it. In every raw fiber and evaporated organ they knew it. She stood listening to them scream. They say dogs hear sounds humans never hear, sounds so many decibels higher than normal hearing that they seem nonexistent. The corridor swarmed with screams. Screams poured from terror-yawned lips and dry tongues, screams you couldn't hear because they were so high.

The Next In Line, Ray Bradbury

Mari Lwyd

The Mari Lwyd is a wassailing folk custom found in South Wales. The tradition entails the use of an eponymous hobby horse which is made from a horse's skull mounted on a pole and carried by an individual hidden under a sackcloth. It represents a regional variation of a "hooded animal" tradition that appears in various forms throughout Britain.

The custom was first recorded in 1800, with subsequent accounts of it being produced into the early twentieth century. According to these, the Mari Lwyd was a tradition performed at Christmas time by groups of men. They would form into teams to accompany the horse on its travels around the local area, and although the makeup of such groups varied, they typically included an individual to carry the horse, a leader, and individuals dressed as stock characters such as Punch and Judy. The team would carry the Mari Lwyd to local houses, where they would request entry through the medium of song. The householders would be expected to deny them entry, again through song, and the two sides would continue their responses to one another in this manner. If the householders eventually relented, then the team would be permitted entry and given food and drink.

Happy Star Wars Day

Someone wished me a Happy Star Wars Day at work and I snorted "I prefer Star TREK!... TREK!"


First World Crisis

I haven't had a pop tart in a very long time, so when I walked up the cereal aisle at the local grocery store and spotted a box boasting NOW WITH MORE FROSTING I was pretty excited.  I've often wondered who were the people who purchased the ugly dry pop tarts with zero frosting.  Just seems like if you're going to eat something so sweet and odd that you might as well jump in head first.  I've never been one to believe that too much of a good thing isn't good, so I bought a box of strawberry pop tarts NOW WITH MORE FROSTING and couldn't wait to get to the car to eat them (though now I'm kicking myself for not checking to see if they had the brown sugar ones NOW WITH MORE FROSTING [my personal favorite pop tarts]).  I tore open the weird foil and saw something very similar to the below photo.  Mine actually had LESS frosting.  And I'm a little jealous of the ones below as their frosting actually sorta made it to both sides.  Mine had about a half inch of ugly dry pop tart on the left and right long sides of the tart.

As the person who posted the below photo stated:  Life is full of lies.

The only positive of this story is that when I tossed the box out of the window as I drove, they hit a homeless man in the face.

(that sounded funnier in my head.)
