At work, on any given day, hundreds of thoughts go through my mind throughout the day. I thought I would share a few with you. Envy me. SIGH.

Idiot upon entering the store: I’m looking for a movie.
Me (walking to computer, at the ready): Okay!
*prolonged silence*
Me: Does the movie have a name?

Idiot upon entering the store: I’m looking for The Notebook. Would I look under ‘T’ or ‘N?’

Me answering the phone: Movies R Awesome, this is Kirk, can I help you?
Idiot: Is this Movies R Awesome?

Me answering the phone (at 10:30AM): Movies R Awesome, this is Kirk
Idiot: What time do you close today?
Me: 11
Idiot: AM?!
Me: l o n g silence… PM
Idiot: (less panicked) Oh,okay.

First off, sorry I screwed around and didn’t get a single thing posted last week. I really do have a week’s worth of entries, I just haven’t had the time to upload the images with corresponding text. I will get that done, hopefully today. So, you will have a week’s worth of reading to catch up on, in addition to this week’s. Continue reading

Modern Witches are out in the open!

…suing the churches for reparations, challenging the establishment, proclaiming a new image,claiming their Civil Rights. Weird Rituals, Black Magic, the Black Mass, Voodoo and Hexing, How-To-Technique. Dr. Martello’s book reveals all including interviews with two witches whose ancestors were burned at the stake. It tells what’s happening in the world of Witchcraft TODAY!

What do witches believe in? What do they want? What are their rituals? Is witchcraft a religion? Are they Satanists? All answered in THE WEIRD WAYS OF WITCHCRAFT.

Comments: I guess I’m getting a head start on Halloween. I ran across this book at the Half Price Books in a nearby town and had to get it. I always was interested in the occult but rarely come across older books on the subject.

Yesterday morning, I had to run by the post office and mail a pkg, renew my P.O. box for another year…and get more stamps. Well, if you haven’t seen them, the new (May 8.09) Love Stamp: King and Queen of Hearts, here they are. I just love everything about them: the image, style, the color choices, etc. I actually don’t feel so grumbly about mailing bills when I have something this groovy to look at.
