Honey and the Sweet Little Fiends
I spent the morning helping to harvest honey from the poor dear departed Kitty Hive. This is the one that swarmed this summer, Kitty ( much like her on-the-go namesake, ) took OFF, and took half the colony with her. Where? Who can say...We re-Queened the hive, but alas, they could not keep warm and all died, leaving their honey behind them.
For US to strain out of the comb and jar up! Sticky business that. But fun, I say. I felt like Winnie the Pooh with all of his Honey Pots. Or some sort of grave robber, stealing honey from Dead Bees....I like that. Honey from the Dead.
Yesterday, when I did not arise from my bed in good enough time, to make Venus and Mim's breakfast, they got together and decided the one of the with the fullest bladder would let it GO right there in the bed. I have to hand it to them, as a technique for getting someone out of bed , it worked.
I am beginning to suspect it is an illusion that I am any kind of control here in my Spooky House, and that I am allowed to live there simply because I have thumbs and can open cans. They no longer need me in order to get online, and here, is proof positive that these Bengals of mine DO have an agenda, and that they are acting on it.
I have been getting e-mails from people who are starting to suggest that I am paranoid, it's all in my mind, and Venus and Mim are not surfing the internet looking for deals on Little Fury Mice, and using my credit card to pay for them, and beaming Powerful Mind Control Lazor Beams into my brain, to get me to do their bidding....
Madame Malena Mim: Sssaaayyyy....Venussssss.....Looky heeere on EEEEEbay.......Mousies.
Freaky Venus Seaweed: Yeeessss.....Mousies. Nice thiiinnnggss for us to chasesssss...I knowsss where she keeps the credit cardsssss. But will ssshe fiiindd out???????
Madame Malena Mim: Noooo, she wiiill never knoooow. I willl make my eyeses glow greeen, and beam Powerful Lazor Beam Mind Control Rays into her brain.....She will never know....
It's entirely possible I stayed up WAY too late after the gig last night, but I swear, that's what SEEMED like happened, and I do have pictures this morning.
Love, Honey, and Fiends from Hell,
