Thank Grog It’s Firday!
I don’t know about you, but I am laughing hard about the storyline in this “Christmas” event. A couple of years back, the Interwebs were abuzz with the audacity of the Gracie writers to have a Pagan Christmas. And now…well, if I am reading ahead in the storyline that we were sent by their female version of “Bob,”…you may come to a place where Pagans are the least of your worries.
But, let me assure, you…it is funny stuff. Really funny stuff.
Almost as weirdly funny as the coincidental way that this update hit, with it’s references to Alien spacecraft, during the same week that a so-called “reliable source,” leaked that the US Government had cut a deal, to work with the Space Federation…for “experiments.”
I hate to say it…but that may actually put me at ease in a weird way, knowing that reality has seemed like a bad Sci-Fi movie, with more than a handful of crazy, archvillain types to keep the headlines abuzz.
Wait. You think I’m making this up?? Read on…….
While Homer was “driving the Movemetarian Ad Truck” (which weirdly took place in the Alien Space Ship, if you already had one), the interwebs were abuzz with news….
And not just from sources in the “alternative” news world…from places like NEWSWEEK, and The Weather Channel.
The Weather Channel for heck’s sake! If you can’t trust news from the Weather Channel, all hope for figuring out how aliens shape weather patterns will be called into question!!!
Here is a basic Google Link…
There, you can find links to stories from hundreds of “most trusted” news sources (and not so trusted) about the same story!
Names like, NBC , Newsweek, Forbes, and Slate.
So, if you thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder…it just did.
However…one quote from the Newsweek story caught my attention…
So…wait…you’re telling me that aliens, who just flew here using extremely advanced technology, want OUR “help to understand the whole fabric of the universe?” Did they pedal here in pedal-driven spacecraft that somehow allow them to exceed the speed of light?
They want OUR HELP?? Pfffffttt~
Like I said…2020 just keeps getting weirder.
But, the opening dialogue in this latest TSTO event really, really made me laugh. It takes a brilliant piece of writing to skewer both Alien conspiracies and Scientology (which is thinly veiled as “The Movementarians”), and do it in the first few “scenes” of dialogue.
The “F-reader” is clearly a reference to the “E-Meter” that Scientology uses to measure your “bad mojo” (aka Thetans…placed in your body by aliens, millions of years ago!).
High tech stuff… and certainly more believable than the simple methods that the creeps who ran NXIVM used…as in just TELLING people they needed help (and needed to spend tens of thousands doing so) and needed to get branded (to be special enough to have sex with the leader) and…well…if you haven’t watched the two series yet, “The Vow,” and “Seduced,” then you haven’t actually been binge-watching enough TV during the Covid Lockdown. But, I digress…
But, the writers don’t stop there with their “cult-cajoling.” Nope…there are references tot he Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his plot to poison towns people with tainted salad bars, and a jab at the King Whack of the Wackiest Scientologist, Tom Cruise (thank goodness Nicole escaped that action star elf, and found love with her Country Star elf…she clearly has a thing for short guys).
I admit it. I would love to be able to simply figure out a way to become “Frazzle Resistant.” All of the events of 2020, have left me completely frazzled.
So yes…I am willing to turn myself over to just letting this event play out, and see who shows up. If you look at the Calendar, there are going to be a TON of TWISTS and TURNS! And if the political season, and the plethora of murder, crime, conspiracy, mayhem series on Netflix are any indication…we LOVE TWISTS AND TURNS!!
Sit back. Enjoy the show. What else do you have to do?
On a more somber, thankful note…I am gratified and thankful for all of you who posted kind comments, or sent emails about my Mom’s hospice care. She passed last weekend. I pulled the “short straw” on the hospice shifts my sister and I were doing since rescuing her from Rehab. But, I am glad to spare them from the final days, which were challenging to say the least. In the end, she was able to die on her terms. In her home…with love around her. A life well lived.
For those continuing to read this far… I’ll share what I posted on social media, as that is so much easier than the old days, of having to call and write 400 friends. And besides…nobody reads the obits in the newspaper anymore (remember the newspaper?).

In closing; do your best to enjoy the holidays…however you celebrate. Give love…figure out how to heal…and forgive. It just makes life easier, and will save you THOUSANDS in Thetan-Auditing from the Scientologists.
