†At long last spring is showing up around here. Us Nortí Landers just experienced one of the longest, most miserable, record-shattering winter snowfalls ever. The snow is only now beginning to melt and there are birds chirping, but no dandelions as yet. The weather was so wretched it caused widespread crankiness with an 80% chance of depression causing moody, irritable-people-syndrome. Ennit?

Quite by accident I was awake very early this past Palm Sunday. I flipped through my few TV channels and ended up watching a Christian Evangelist show hosted by Jack Van Impe. So this Van Impe guy was quoting Ė if one could call it that from a teleprompter Ė† many chapters and verse from the Bible, and he somehow kept a smirky, satisfied smile on his pale face, not even blinking when he described imminent Armageddon, hellfire, an angry God, blah blah blah, etc....
I was like, geez! Why was this man so pleased spouting end of times scripture, prophecies and doom for our world as we know it? Then it hit me, he assumes that by way of being saved by Jesus he would be one of the few people to survive the coming holocaust. Van Impe smiled through his ivory dentures while talking about the two Popes that had been prophesized, Francis being the 266th Pope, who will be the last one with that title.

Four years ago this past month I chopped my hair off with rusty scissors and the result was horribly hilarious. I wrote that I looked like Kim Jong-Il, a now decomposed dictator whom I thought was haunting my mirror beady eyes and all. Thatís one thing. I did it with full knowledge that I canít even cut coupons evenly but I hacked up my own hair. Eventually it grew out but I was vainly aware that my head is too big and round to pull off short, short hair styles.
Fast forward to now, my last hair trim was cute, angled under my chins and shorter in back. Well, as hair has the tendency to do it grew longer but added some odd little curls I never had before and didnít know what to do with. Yes, this world is on a crazy train going off the tracks, and I get so tired and depressed about it that I have to yell ďSTOP!Ē soís I donít completely lose my mind for good. Thus, I focused on my hair cuz well, no one else will, right?

Okay! Okay! Okay! You done yet? Quit laughing now. I have a column to write here. So my Alien prediction did not happen...or did it? Well we'll never know for sure. Most people prob'ly aren't ready for them anyway, specifically the ones who believe in divine (?) selection.
Now that we have that out of the way I wish yooz all a very Happy New Year. I would share my resolution† list with yooz but lately I look to Facebook posts for inspiration and wisdom. Thanks to Facebook posters everything has already been said and done. How one feels is just one click away for the rest of your 'friends' to see. I think that's way better than posting cryptic passive/aggressive status updates Danial. Whoops! I mean those of you who do that...you know who you are!

From the cozy nest on my sofa I watched national and local newscasts in growing horror about Black Friday retail sales. I felt sick. That day, in my opinion, is American cultureís true nature; ugly, greedy, delusional, utterly ignorant and devoid of the original significance of the Christian holiday. Is getting a few bucks off a device that will become obsolete in two weeks worth the ridiculous, smelly crush of people worth it? Wait! Did I say ďpeople?Ē I mean zombies.
Zombies are what so many American people, aka consumers, have become de facto. Where is the soul-chip of a smart phone? Itís not there like when I look into the eyes of a wolf. I donít believe that compassion resides in a HDTV or touch pad like when my pets will generously apply kitty kisses and puppy kisses for no other reason than love. Or when my beloved Gramma Rose prays for all her family and their well-being; she puts tobacco down as well as does her beads. That way sheís got most of it covered, ennit? Who needs electricity or satellites to operate and conduct prayers or affection?
