Please pray for my father in law. He’s been taken to the hospital. He’s been fighting cancer and couldn’t get out of bed this morning. Pray also for my husband who is struggling with this. Thank you all. Whiskers*Cat2*

Lately I’ve noticed some of my neighbors putting up yard signs that begin “In this house we believe...” Every sign is identical. I think yard signs like these need more variety, so I’m making my own.

“In this house, we believe:

The force is with us.

Always take the red pill.

Second breakfast is crucial.

With great power comes great responsibility.

Wardrobes are gateways.

Nuking it from orbit is the only way to be sure.

Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while you could miss it.

Does anyone have other suggestions?

Since it’s Holy Week, I decided to share a poem I wrote about two years ago. It’s based on the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 27, verses 51–53.

At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

What Turtle said*RollEyes*
From my prison I send out a plea
I’m not helping my jailer Vampy
My blood’s a poor flavor
It’s lacking in savor
So it’s spoiling his afternoon tea

Anyone liberating a captive from prison will be put in a drawing for a Merit Badge. If you want me to linger in jail, perhaps you will liberate one of the other unfairly imprisoned folk? Anyone who frees me will be rewarded for your charitable service in terms of an MB. Details are below. Thanks. wHisskers*Cat2* *Cat*

Well done, Ms. Whiskerface. But it is you who go in the drawing, should you secure bail for yourself. 2 Free Bones for you as well. Bail is 25K, and yes, they will earn a MB for freeing you.

Good day to you,
Vampy
I shall set you free if you have a bone for my dog... my cupboard is bare!


As I mentioned, we are simply delighted to be rid of her and thank you profusely, Ms. Cubby.

A MB shall be on its way very soon.

A pity it comes at such a high cost of freedom for you. For some reason, I don't see you fairing well in our dungeon. Pray the ogres are released before then.

Is anyone out there willing to review fan fiction? I just wrote a short story, and I really need reviews. I’m inexperienced with fiction writing, and will take any help. I’m offering 1500 gp’s per review. You don’t have to be familiar with the franchise.
Okay, fair warning. I’ve had something bugging me for awhile, and I want to get it off my chest. This following is a rant.

I hate female empowerment movies.

I despise Disney Princess empowerment movies.

Moana is trapped on an island and not permitted to step a toe in the ocean.

Jasmine is stuck in a palace and not permitted to leave. The girl owns a tiger, but can’t leave the house.

Ariel is stuck in the ocean, pining for life on land.

Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower.

Belle, from Beauty and the Beas, has Stockholm syndrome.

Anna hasn’t left her palace since she was about four. Her one friend, her sister Elsa, never sees her anymore. Anna is gregarious, outgoing, and incredibly lonely.

Elsa is trapped in her palace, and her room, terrified of her power, forced to drive her sister away, and constantly hears her parents tell her to hide her feelings. No one can know about her power, and she always wears gloves to prevent her power from escaping.

How many times have these girls had their parents clamp down on them. How many times have they heard, ‘No, you can’t?” Finally, when life has gone from dreadful and hopeless, to unbelievably dreadful and hopeless, and an outside event allows them a chance to escape, then they take it. They find their(sometimes almost nonexistent) courage, and take action. They stumble out of their prison, unprepared to cope, and wind up needing to be rescued.

I’m not even going into the older films, where female empowerment didn’t exist. Snow White, escapee from execution. Cinderella, enslaved and happy, singing with her little animal friends. Sleeping Beauty, cursed from the beginning to sleep for 100 years, until some random stranger kisses her.

I think teaching girls to be empowered works better with films like The Incredibles, How to Train Your Dragon, Lilo and Stitch, Meet the Robinsons, Wreck-It-Ralph, and Atlantis. Yes, there are princesses in here, but they know who they are. Show girls movies with strong female characters who aren’t always the lead. Just tell a good story, people, and people will watch it.

And, FYI, the men don’t have to be idiots, and the girls don’t have to be from a single-parent home or orphans. Way too many of these girls have useless fathers. If you must have a classic film, go with Mary Poppins; she possesses a brain and a spine.

Anyway, rant over. Thanks for tuning in. Whiskerface*Cat2*
