Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my autumn angels!  How are you?  So sorry that I took last week off.  I had to do something, but I can’t remember what.  Even though I’m psychic, my memory is getting bad.  I can see what’s coming, but not what’s gone.

The weather has been seasonably crisp.  Good-bye summer 2013.  Boo hoo.  More and more trees are changing color and losing their leaves.  Nature’s beauty can be so stunning, yet so transitory.  Now’s the time for burning bushes to burn their fierce red.  Now’s the time for jumping into piles of leaves.

Hooray, hooray! Our chivalric and magnanimous Green Bay Packers defeated the whimpering Detroit Lions this Sunday past.  This coming Sunday, the sublime and transcendent Packers meet the lowly Baltimore Ravens.  “Quoth the raven, ‘Nevermore!’” I believe that refers to their chances against our majestic Pack.

Unfortunately, my Screaming Psychics in the Irregular Football League are currently in last place.  On the other hand, the Orbliterators are in first place and remain unbeaten.  Speaking of this, I know, Mr. OrbsCorbs, that is you telephoning me after each of your wins and yelling, “Booyah!”  One more time, turkey, and you’re in for an unpleasant surprise.

I keep reading and seeing stories about the latest scandal swirling around Mr. Mayor Dickert: the possible sale of a Native American burial mound.  Talk about some bad joojoo, even I won’t mess with Native American curses.  Those are some mightily ticked off spirits.  You would be, too, if your land and way of life were stolen from you.  I have no advice for Mr. Mayor because he never asks for it.  He’s now claiming to be part Native American himself.  Which part, I wonder?  Is it for sale?

The federal government is shut down because of bickering over the Affordable Care Act.  This has a detrimental impact upon untold areas of government and society, rippling out to the furthest reaches.  Who are these people in Washington, DC?  Today, Congress has an 11% approval rating:  It doesn’t seem to faze them in the least.  I don’t understand the people who do these things.

Here’s a prank in a coffee shop involving “telekinesis.”  Boo!

Oh my.  And I thought I had some bad days.  How can she repeatedly scream like that?  (By the way, why do YouTube videos now start silent?  They used to start with the sound on.  Now I have to turn it on.)

Thank you, my dears, for reading my blog today.  You are the sunshine of my life.  Shine on, my friends.  Feel the Irregular love.  It makes me tingly and shivery.

The government shut down, but will it ever shut up?  Find out:

Enjoy the weather while we have it.  Soon comes you-know-what.  That makes me shudder.  Be kind to each other and help those in need.  I love you all.  Tachydidaxy!

Unfortunately for you, Mme. Z, your Screaming Psychics meet my Orbliterators this week. Resistance is futile.

Great video. Oh what fun.

I would have gotten out of there so fast... I'd have been a blur on that video. Not that believe in that stuff, but still!

It is very odd that you posted this today. I swear, I saw some movement in a doorway this morning and no one was there. Coincidence? Hmmmm.

Welcome back Madame.

I think your Mayor is nuts and if he is part Native American then he should know better than to disrupt a sacred burial ground. I don't think I'd want to mess with those spirits.

KK - you are creeping me out.

The guy in the green and white stripes in the video is precious. He's showing on the still before you begin the video. He orders bagels with butter. He holds onto the plate when the woman sticks that guy up on the wall. When the tables all move away, though, he drops it.
