Happy May Day

Inspired by kat's post of her pretty roses I wanted to post some pictures from around my yard, but blogger isn't wanting to upload them for some reason. Oh well. Blame it on the illegal aliens! (I haven't paid attention to the news today. Are they doing their big protest/boycott?)

I was going to do a post about the significance of May Day, but when I looked it up I found that the Commies have adopted it for their own purposes. Just like a bunch of socialist pigs to ruin a perfectly good fertility celebration.

I did read that the Maypole started out as a phallic symbol. Well, that's cool! Gotta love those phalluses!

I can't seem to gather my thoughts enough today to put anything together for a coherent post. I was thinking about my favorite archetypal symbol (well, other than a phallic symbol), the Sacred Spiral. I might still do that eventually, but I'm just not up to it right now.

My throat is feeling scratchy. It's probably allergy related, but who knows? I guess I'll take some Motrin and drink some more orange juice.

I don't know what's wrong with me today, other than it being Monday. I don't do Mondays very well.

I've heard Clyde the frog but haven't seen him. He's so small, and I suspect that he's hiding in one of the flower pots, maybe even under the dirt. I'd look up whether frogs do that (burrow under dirt), but I don't feel like doing that either.

A million things to do, but I think in spirit maybe I'm an illegal alien today and will sit on my ass and do nothing.

What am I protesting? Maybe a lack of phallic symbols...

Blogger having lots of trouble today. Didn't know mexican gardeners were in charge of system maintenance as well.
Yes, big rallies, I've been trying to post an entry about it for 20 minutes but blogger keeps vomiting.

Don't maypoles end up with a sort of spiral pattern on them when the ribbons are all wrapped around it? That's sort of fetishy!

Get some zinc and vitamin C for that scratchy throat but avoid sugar if you can. Viruses use sugar to attach to cell walls. That includes honey, fruit sugar or high fructose corn syrup in sodas.

Happy Mayday.

I looked up may day stuff too, and mostly got some crap about protesting. I didn't pay enough attention to it to figure out what it was about. Looked ridiculous.

Communism is practically extinct except in university social science departments and Lumo's nightmares. Feel free to take back the Maypole, and Mayday.

guy, thanks! I had also thought about the spiraling ribbons on the Maypole in comparison to the Sacred Spiral, but I wasn't up to writing about it yesterday.

kat, me too! I'm sick and tired of hearing the illegals whining.

cip, I just think that the Maypole is cool!
