The Daily Word In Snobby Egyptian Cats, Laughing Gas And Jesus Handing Out Pot

And if you have a genius cat, it’s possible she was once an “Egyptian princess” who was “used to being treated like a deity”

A Tale of Betrayal
Tricklock weaves a tangled web
In Traitors, things are not as they seem.
The original script by Tricklock Company member Kristen D. Simpson weaves together the stories of Benedict Arnold, Judas Iscariot and Sen. Joseph McCarthy. On the surface, the play is a reflection on the nature of betrayal, patriotism and forgiveness. But there’s another surprising current that sweeps through the show. Religion is the undertone of the production, and its presence left me more than a little confused.

’Tis the Season
The holiday season is in full swing, and there’s no use fighting it, Scrooge. It doesn't all have to be canned Christmas music and harried shopping. Instead, focus on the fun and festive aspects and leave the schlock and stress to someone else.
Step Up To Life
Yesterday Nozlkoff and I took the #516 train to Santa Fe, and after two hours arrived in the rainy capital for the burning of Zozobra. For recent relocaters, troglodytes and people reading this from the Lesser Antilles, Zozobra is an 85 year-old Santa Fe tradition where the effigy of gloom is tortured and burned.
I’d never been, but always thought I would enjoy the strange spectacle.
It was OK.
Santa Fe natives naturally seemed more into it than the others. I fancied the part where they actually tortured and burned the puppet, but standing in a baseball field, packed in like salty little fish, sustaining a substantial contact high while listening to Beatles covers and ... waiting ... is not my idea of fun.
The important thing I did take away from this experience, however, is Step Up to Life by Elmer Murdoch, an glossy, informative booklet about the “pure spiritual milk” of Jesus. Delicious.
