30.5.05 | ...3... The Little Things That Make A Difference

It was The Saturnynes Birthday recently. Like about three weeks ago. Something like that. Y'want the exact day? No way! You might remember for next year and then i'd be inundated with bloody birthday greetings, and then i'd probably have to come round your house with shiny sharp teeth.

The Saturnyne would not normally be telling you about his birthday, for to him, such things are an anathema. But as time has moved on and the day of doom has passed, it feels safe to mention.

They are a reminder of sorrows that seem endless. (Melodrama Alert! Melodrama Alert!!! )

A breaking of teeth. A tearing of skin. A splintering of bone. A multitude of curses. The body left bloody and broken like a discarded and abused ragdoll by the roadside. An absence of light. A frozen empty violent mind. A glittering frigid star of pain. The bleakest of sounds, harsh and blue, rolling like warclouds shot with deaths lightning (a personal favouite, that one. I nicked it from the Captain Britain comic/graphic novel{Which is rather good, incidentally. Try and get hold of it})... So ok, i'm sure you get the picture now; which is that i'm a right misery guts on my birthdays. Haaaaaaaa!

So that's how it feels/felt. Although not literally obviously. Think of the medical bills!

...but sometimes, someone gives a little light...

Two people this year, in fact. And this post is dedicated to them and to all the people who do the kindest and most generous things... things that can make your days feel blessed and full of shiny, shininess. And sometimes you don't even realize that they're doing them. Which is a great shame, i think.

There is a Jewish legend i have heard of, that the world rests upon the backs of 36 Tzaddikim, secret saints of selflessness and generosity and goodness. I think about this on occasion.

Talking to the malevolently radiant Tam on Yahoo, who somehow manages to both tolerate my whininess and apppalling sense of humour without wanting to punch me at least some of the time, i inadvertently let slip mid-whineage that it was my birthday. And Tam, being the secretly generous personnage that she is, went and took me a pic of some cake that she had lying around the house. She even stuck a candle in the top for me, too! Lit! I was suitably impressed. I grinned all day afterwards.

"Cake Goodness" by Tam

Not literally mind, cause grinning ALL day would just look disturbing and probably make my face ache.

Later that day, my Pumpkin came to stay. And amongst my prezzies, she gave me this:

I christened him Elvis! Cos he rocks! No-one else in the entire universe gives me cute prezzies like this!

Pumpkin also gave me yummy fair trade chocolate (dark of course) and i am currently munching on it and thinking about her with great fondness. Pumpkin is a verr special personnage indeed. I secretly suspect that she may be one of the aforementioned Tzaddikim, y'know...

And that's all for today. I expect i'll come back and re-edit this later in the hope of making it more entertaining or something, cos it looks like a right load of piss at the moment, but i imagine ye'll understand what i'm going on about. Gah!-I really should start writing at more human hours of the day...

Nighty night. Or Morny morn... whichever seems most appropriate.


PS: Oh yeah, i've been invited to contribute (And have done so already!)to this yummy blog here: http://www.flying-monkeys.blogspot.com/ I have yet to ask what the title means... but i rather like it all.

Hey, happy recent birthday Saturnyne! I'm sorry that such events pain you - over quickly enough, though, aren't they. Like ripping off a band-aid..

  6:17 am :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

gah! Birthdays! I'm not even sure i was born. More like "evicted".

Next year i'm setting up a total exclusion zone round the event. Although i might relax it a little for cake and prezzies...


PS: thanks though, dear Jessie.

great presents!! wishing you a happy day.

  6:42 pm :. Blogger B hollered thusly:

damn those pesky birthdays. jessie is right about the band-aid thing.
still, i hope you have several more reasons to smile today- and have a very very happy birthday!

  7:11 pm :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

Oh dear, B... reading your snd our fab 3rd Daughters comments, i just had to re-alter my post for the nth time.

Da birthday has bin and gone ages ago... in fact i probably would have posted this sooner had i managed to get the pesky digital camera working for my pic of Elvis.

Even then I still wouldn't have mentioned it but for Pumpkin and Tam's gifts, which i hugely appreciated for their warmth and making me smile for ages.

Huzzah for melodrama!

  11:43 pm :. Blogger LiVEwiRe hollered thusly:

Truly enjoyed your 'Melodrama Alert' and the words that followed. I am a fan of the 'unbirthday'; you tell coworkers (that inevitably ask) that your bday is about 5 weeks after it really is. As it gets closer to that fake 5 week date they always ask what you'll be doing that day. I love being able to say 'oh, my birthday was weeks ago'... they'll argue that you told them it was ___ (whatever the fake date was) but no one can argue when you say, 'No, I'm pretty sure I know my own birthday...' Unfortunately you can only use this once. Unless the people around you are dumb enough to fall for it again. In which case I say tell them you have 2 birthdays and get more gifts. After all, might include more dark chocolate [yum!].

On the non-people-bashing side; I'm glad you got to experience some kindness. Those are the kinds of things that restore a little faith. Good for you. And good for them for remembering how to be that way.

i can think of at least one good thing about birthdays: it brought you to our lives.

I shall not evah wish you a "happy" birthday. I will tell you that I am pleased that you were born and that you have successfully passed another anniversary of that date. I am attempting to teleport loads of choccie to you to celebrate your continued presance among us.

Happy Belated.
I knew Elvis was still alive and kicking.

  5:00 pm :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

O course when i say "birthday" i am only inferring in the vaguest sense that i was "born"

I have it on good authority that i was either
A: Hatched out of a duck egg
B: Carved from a block of solid mercury and animated using the finest magic available.
C: Don't actually exist at all, except in your imaginations. A bit like God, as the atheists among us might say...

  12:53 am :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

No way CArl! It wouldn't work, y'see... cos i'd know that it had been pre-meditated all year.

I'm afraid you get the short straw every year by buying me all them expensive prezzies instead. It's one of the laws of the universe.

O' course, the upside to that is that you get prezzies back. Sometimes even on the correct day!

Nope Teufel, i was definitely one of A B or C. Probably C cos i checked in with yer subconscious earlier and it told me so.... Hah!

Happy belated birthday. I, too, totally dread my birthday. It is an inevitable black cloud moving painfully towards me every year. But how beautiful that you found such sweet moments in your day to bring you such delight!

  12:08 pm :. Blogger Carl hollered thusly:

Look at it this way, each birthday means you've successfully got through 12 months without ending up either bankrupt, in prison or dead (in most cases).

  2:33 am :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

Oops! sorry Lynda... i missed replying to yer.

Rule of thirds, eh? I've just emailed you a link to look at.

Sk8rn? I'm currently saying your name out loud. Or trying to. =}

Nice to know i'm not alone in those birthday blues feelings.

21.5.05 | Errr... where was i? Right, ok... this one's 3.5 or something...

I suppose you'll be expecting something scintillating and or awesome from me in this post?

You'll be lucky, sirs and ladies, for i'm so bollocksed from lack of sleep that i may well write any old crap that springs to mind. This insomnia is... murder...

So just imagine that i'm writing something amazing and fabulous, and i'll do the same, and we can all be totally totally happy.

Sooo... stuff wot i've noticed recently and other miscellanies.

George Galloway giving some American politicians a right old bollocking for invading Iraq. Don't like the bloke, but i laughed me arse off at the shellshocked expressions on their faces as he totally dismissed them and then dissed them on their home turf. Lovely.

Sky News and it's dramatic recreations of the Michael Jackson trial. I dunno who the actor playing Jacko is but i reckon he's as guilty as Santa and deserves to hang for sure! Even if the real one turns out to be innocent. Personally i'd lynch 'em both. Jacko is too weird to live, anyway! Besides, i'd find it kind of enjoyable... and surely that's a good enough reason? Surely?

A McDonalds advert in which some woman is talking about her love of McNuggets and their "tasty white breast meat" (this phrase is repeated twice!) Now i don't know about you, but i find this totally fucking perverse and snicker enthusiastically every time the ad comes on. One has to show one's appreciation at the majesty of such things...

Another ad- That fucking cunting frog and it's blethering so-called-cute ringtones. Where's a fucking heron when ya need one, eh?

A really sweet email from someone called Chloe (or Fiona?), i think (Without looking through my emails to make sure). Thanks Chloe!- but wheres the reply to my reply? Hmm?

Another email informing me some weeks ago that i was the number one site when googling for the word "bibblybob". I checked and it was true! However i was most disappointed that i rate no mention at all when i searched it again today! Soooo disappointed. Hmm... more on that word in a future post...

That's all for now. I may add to this post when i wake up later on today. Or i may deny that it exists, but grinningly humour you anyway when you try and prove that it does...

Right, i'm off for a good swear. I've got a few more "Fucks"' a "Cunt" and several "Bastards" and "Wankah's" to spew vitriolically before bedtime. Got me quota to fill y'know...


PS: did i ever tell ya, that i wanted to be a newsreader once?


  5:22 am :. Blogger transience hollered thusly:

even when you are rambly and lacking sleep, you are still coherent. i can never be that. are you drunk on too much coffee as it is?

  10:10 am :. Blogger Janey hollered thusly:

The frog is a source of endless speculation by my parents as to what is hiding benath the small black square on the groin regions...

And I have to agree about Galloway - even though he's lying through his teeth he was fascinating to watch, as were the shocked faces of the Americans around him!

Get some good sleep my love


  11:16 am :. Blogger Star hollered thusly:

Heh, I live in the US and I haven't heard about that spectacle yet, to be sure I'll be watching the news for a glimpse of it tomorow!

Yeah, there really are some messed up commercials on. I saw one today for life insurance or somesuch. An old (70?)man did all the talking while his 'wife' sat next to him and nodded..not one word. At first I found this offensive. I kept watching of course and came to the conclusion that 1.she was deaf or 2.didn't give a damn about what he was saying.
Either a bad actress or great wife, tehe.

  8:37 pm :. Anonymous Max Cady hollered thusly:

Neat observations, kid.

PS: No kidding! You wanted to be a newsreader? What a coincidence, I wanted to be the guy what types out the news-sheets!

  8:40 pm :. Blogger Teufel hollered thusly:

Jacko on his back-o! Man, it was for some reason that they put Jacko on the MIB2 movie... not mere coincidence... some1 I know compared him... it to Bjork... no way!!!
Hey, isn't that frog the same frog my dear Darkchild hate? Are you gonna tell me they pass that frog all over Europe? Well, Marylin Manson and I took some revenge, and wrote "Frog is Dead"... I'll ask it again to my love to see if I post it soon (buahahahahahahaha)...
Man, a cure against insomnia... sleep! You know? That's how it all started in "The Fight Club": Edward Norton wasn't able to sleep (Ps: there are subliminal messages in that movie).
See you later! Oh! And, how can I contact Sat, besides on this blog?

Outrageous! I've never been accused of coherence before! Oh the shame. I mentioned yr comment to some of my "real-world" friends the other night, and they practically choked on their drinks. I grin.


THfrog used to have big eff off bollocks and ginormous cock-age... until someone complained. Rotten gits!

Iridescence! (How i heart my "!") You've not seen the pseudo Michael Jackson trials? They're hillarious! Should be made into a proper telly series. I fall outta my chair laughing at the mere thought of it. Oh yeah- Who thinks Mr Jackson is guilty yet?

Max Cady! "Kid!" Wow!- Youuu must be VERY old!

TEufel! I'll bet it's the very same hated frog. Fight Club? Shit! i'm buggered, then... i can't fight for piss!

PS: i can be contacted by anyone via my email and MSN addy, which are both the same. Plus my Yahoo addy. All of which can be found on my very swish looking profile.

Livewire! Yeah, you'd better come back, or else. I'll look at you funny if not.

Stella! Aww! Thanks Stella. But are you sure you'd want to talk alllll night? ;} ...still, if ya ever want, yer can get me via the aforementioned MSN and yahoo thingies. I can even use a crappy mic on at least one of them! Whoop!

Hee! I don't know much about the alleged Galloway participation in the Oil-for-food scandal, but I fucking love him for putting those stupid yank poor excuses for Politicians in their places.

For my part, I have decided to put my money where my mouth is, so to speak, and get off my arse and join in some political protestation (very tame of course), rather than just talk about it.

Tuesday night between the wee hours of 10pm - 12pm CDT, I will be fulfilling my part of a 24 hour Citizen filibuster.. I'm thinking I'll read something from 1984 - should be pertinent?!
Ooh.. also, Sat - I have more piccies on me flickr if you care to see http://www.flickr.com/photos/brendish

Saw a commercial for the michael jackson thing. Horribly disturbed. Well, he just disturbs me in general though and on that alone I would say he's guilty.. but that's not very fair I guess so I won't say anything. Hehe. Have you seen the South Park eposoide he's in though? F-ing hilarious! :D

Anyway. Thanks for your lovely comments and readership. And for all the lovely posts I've had the pleasure to read on your blog. I've updated my last post a wee bit so you should check it out. Oh yeah, and I will continue to be commenting on your blog, don't think I won't.

8.5.05 | Pre-Weirdness Interlude (Apocalyptic Apoplepsies of Politics!)

Ain't England grand!

WE have a new Prime-Minister! Even if he is the same model as the last one!

This one promises to be more "listening". Sah-weet. Totally fucking lying, though.

But ain't England grand!

I can't remember any elections anywhere else in the world where everyone's a winner!

And a loser!

All at the same time! WHoop!

Y'see... it goes like this (boring politics wank follows):
New Labour wins again. But. With a vastly reduced majority and curtailing of megalomania and power. A new, more approachable leader sooner rather than later, methinks. So losers, too. Nyahh!
The Conservatives lose. But win plenty more seats. Not a total drubbing for them this time! Plus a new leader, too. Sooner! So a win, then!
The Liberal Democrats also lose. But get their biggest number of seats since the 1920's. And a substantial increase of voters. And their leaders wife gave birth to a lovely lovely babeh during the campaigning. Ahhh, sweet. More winnah's!

Disappointed with yer own countries politics?
Lead a miserable way of life?
A lack of multi-cultural multi-ethnicity in your area?
Want to let rip and cut loose yer anger AND get pissed up on the streets and fight?
Want your vote to both count AND not-count?
Like rain?

Come to England!

You'll hate it! You'll love it! Plus- you'll get to live in a castle while we rob you of yer money! (We all live in castles, y'see. Even the poor. This is true)

(I should work for the Tourist Board. Definitely)

PS: Am still a snuffed it.

It's hard being dead and blogging.

Yes, it was a wierd one alright. Shame the Libs lost several seats to the Torys as they may have made more of an impact. Still, most of Tony's megolamaniac policies are through now - ID cards, tuition fees...it's hard to see how ouw new political landscape will affect that.

And I didn't see any real signs of humility behind the smug git's serious facade...

Janey - sending you HUGS for the deadness

pity you arrived before i updated this again for the Nth time this morning... oopses on your behalf!


  6:18 pm :. Blogger me hollered thusly:

awww... Sat.. you're so sweet (reference to comments on my soon-to-not-be-blog). You almost make me want to keep inflicting upon the world my stream of crap for a bit longer.

Anyway, if you want, then i would love to have one of your pics. I am moving - but in september. And to places unknown. Well, somewhere in LA anyway, and I'm sure it will be in close proximity to the CBS Studio lot, but other than that, my address could very well be 99 Cardbox Box, Cardboard Box City, california.

I'm not joking about that last bit either. I heard Cardboard boxes are all the rage with homeowners these days.

  8:09 pm :. Blogger Janey hollered thusly:

See, I do take note of you! I came back...have to say I love the pic of Procol Harem depicted in the Lib Dems!

As usual and inspired and absorbing posting


  9:03 pm :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

Lynda, it would please me enormously to send you a pic to hang on your cardboard walls.

And am so terribly sad that your blog ain't gonna be around anymore. All those delightful flickr pics, too.

*sigh* I still hope you change your mind, or return after a brief sabbatical or something...

THanks Janey. I must confess, that i'm going through a barren patch of blogging, or feel to be at the moment. So it's nice to hear yer words.

I think i may be rather depressed. Possibly.


  9:35 pm :. Blogger me hollered thusly:

Don't be depressed. We love you and your blog. and you.

Anyway, for my part - a pic of yours to grace the cardboard walls will be much treasured and loved and passed down among the heirs to my cardboard box estate. And flickr will continue to be updated. In fact, I think I might add a couple of spring-like pics now.

Do you have a grave, so that I may place a bundle of lovely flowers upon it in your remembrence? You should get one of those little angel statues, they're so cute!
I know nothing of your politics (or the us's for that matter!) but really it doesn't bother me. Hehehe
I haven't really felt like blogging either lately, so I know whatcha mean! Happy snuffedness tho!

Wait a minute. All of ya'll live in CASTLES?!

I understand your point, I many times get mad about politicians, but maybe you can take it as a consolation that nowhere in the world people are satisfied. Democracy is good, but it hurts because we´re involved in the process. Ain´t they smart?

Hahaa, great links Saturnyne! Would be even funnier if it wasn't about the fate of the nation :)

4.5.05 | More Flower Bollocks!

Oops! I must apologize for not updating in several days. Had Bubonic Plague or something. All my skin turned a vicious black and then burst open, spewing my liquefied innards forth in a vivid red and purple fountain of stench and corruption.

The funerals next week.

Open casket, obviously!

Condolences are allowed in the form of Large cheques made payable to The Saturnynes Get-Rich-Quick-Via-The-Gullible-Scheme aka TSGRQVTGS for short. Hee!

So until one of my many clones can grow itself enough to take over (sometime next week), this post and additional replies will be via the Redoubtable medium, Madame Cobweb

I have instructed pretty foxglove pics to be presented to you, as promised to the awesome Jessie, with a wave also to B!- Who inspired this and recent flower pics.

Before i passed away so dramatically, i was practising Sepia toning my B and W pics and even better, selenium toning... all via Adobes lovely Photoshop. If anyone would like to know how to do this to their pics, drop me a line and i'll reveal all with some handy dandy simple instructions. Whoop!

The results you can see below... so much better than simple B and W, i think you'll agree. I think you'll agree because i Still know where you all live. Grr!

But which one looks best?

Lovely Lovely Foxgloves

Da Chrysanthem'mmmmmmm (sneaked this one in afterwards)

Lovely Lovely Foxglove Loveliness!


Next up... weirdness!
Weirdness for all!



  2:08 am :. Blogger The Saturnyne hollered thusly:

i like the second of the foxgloves pics. and the chrysanthemum is absolutely gorgeous...a burst of flowery delight!

  1:37 pm :. Blogger The Prisoner hollered thusly:

  4:32 pm :. Blogger Cece hollered thusly:

Those are lovely funeral arrangements! Glad to hear you're blogging even through your recent demise. THATS dedication, people.

Man, what's with you and flowers?... question: when you are at a GardenHouse, and they have those carnivore plants, do they put a sign that says "don't feed the plant?" (goes specially for the fly man)

Lovely! The foxgloves look like so many mouths hanging open. Thanks for the dedication!

  9:56 am :. Blogger Star hollered thusly:

Wow, they are just beautiful!
Now you've got me all in the artsy mood to photograph. Drat you!

  10:05 pm :. Blogger Janey hollered thusly:

an' did you bottle the pus so you could sell it...?!

My mate has a holistic therapy business that involves platinum foot detoxing and hopi ear candles, and they keep the deposits in little glass vials to show to propsective customers. You can sniff'em when they ain't looking...

I'm loving your flower pictures, dear sir. They're a delight.

And I very much hope your bubonic plague hasn't passed onto me via that nifty email you sent.

That really would have been crafty.

Too crafty.

Yep, i'm fucking awesome. I admit it. I've been hiding it for so very long but it's time to come out and admit to long years of closet awesomeness plus a secret perversion for fabulous.

Teufel: i love flowers for their brief glimmerings. Their life. Their fragility.
