Shamanic Festival Attire Has Arrived!

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 2:50 PM 0 comments
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" When the vulture costume arrives at the front door, I know it's a sign that spring is in the air!

And yes, my friends and readers (all three of you), the ever-helpful Akron Costume and Supply has delivered again! On Saturday afternoon I step out, adorned in my feathery finery, to help the fine young minds in Wenonah, New Jersey learn that vultures are a good thing, a wonderful thing, a sight to be gazed upon with awe and joy!

I would so keep this costume if I had the dough. But I'll bet it costs an arm and a leg ... it's a rental.

Which makes me wonder who else uses it during the year. And why.

Buzzard Week 2011: A Heretic Speaks

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 12:36 PM 0 comments
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," celebrating the fabulous Egyptian deities and their respect for Vulture since 2005! All hail the sacred Thunderbird, the Peace Eagle, the Golden Purifier, bird without end, Amen!

We are entering Buzzard Week, the annual peak of Vulture Worship in New Jersey. The East Coast Vulture Festival is Saturday, March 5, in lovely Wenonah, New Jersey. Look alive if you come, because 200 vultures can't be fooled.

Awhile back I wrote a post about Staunton, Virginia, which has a similar influx of winter buzzards. The people of Staunton are not happy about their town being a Holy Land for the Golden Purifier.

Some time last week, I guess a citizen of that ill-informed hamlet read my post. In true troll fashion (which I don't mind at all, unless it's aimed at someone else in my comments section), this sorry apostate wrote the following:

"Until you have lived with a flock of 30+ Buzzards roosting in YOUR yard and vomiting in YOUR yard, you really can't know how disgusting these vile creatures are and you can't say just what you would consider doing to get rid of them. If you would like to have that first hand experience you can camp out in our backyard under the pine trees and get up close and personal with mother nature's garbage disposals. Just make sure you are wearing a hazmat suit because you will need it!"

Oh, my my my. Bound to share Prometheus's hill, I would say. Anon, you won't be burnt at the stake by this civilized Pagan, but you are WRONG WRONG WRONG on every front.

1. I do not have the good fortune of living with a buzzard roost in my back yard. However, I make frequent trips to Wenonah, where the residents don't mind seeing me in their yards under their trees.

2. I have never seen or smelt buzzard vomit in Wenonah. Buzzards don't barf unless they are stressed. That's food they need to survive! Maybe if you quit shooting paintballs at them, they'd keep their supper in their crops.

3. On said trips to Wenonah, I have smelled a distinctly musty odor, but nothing that would be offensive. Vultures are also very quiet. All you hear is a rustle of wings. Their poop doesn't smell. My car has been bombed with it. I don't even wash it off. I just let the rain take care of it.

4. The concentration of vultures in winter roosts is a seasonal phenomenon. In the spring they take off and go their merry way, out into the (vanishing) wilderness and the (overflowing) landfills.

So, Anonymous (oh I love trolls!), I put it to your heretic self this way: Vultures for a few months, not vomiting if you leave them alone, or these horrific, noisy, poop-strewing, shouldn't-even-be-here Canadian geese? It's been nonstop honking here today, and sadly, they ain't flying north.

In Which I Take on a New Moron: Christine Flowers

Posted by Princess Eva Angelica On 3:55 PM 0 comments
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" For all the newbies, here's our platform in a nutshell: If God said, "You shall have no other gods but Me," that presupposes there are other deities. Thank goodness for that. Who wants to pray to a jealous old white man?

Last Friday was the first time I called out sick during the school year 2010-11. I'm a dedicated teacher who puts in 10-hour days without thinking about it. It's my job.

Anyway, I was home sick, and I picked up the Philadelphia Daily News, and therein I read a column by one of their contributors, a moron named Christine Flowers.

The only earthly reason I can see for Christine Flowers to be writing for the Daily News is that she makes the readers furious enough to keep buying the paper to see what she'll write next.

I don't know how long ago it was that Mizz Flowers wrote a column extolling Governor Chris Christie. I emailed her, she emailed back, saying she just wants to see an end to "bloated teacher salaries."

Since then I've mostly missed her, because I'm so busy earning my bloated salary of less than fifty grand. But lately I've caught up with her and decided to make her my new "moron du jour" until Rick Santorum gets his national candidacy out of the gutter and into swing.

Christine is in full flower today, so if you've taken your blood pressure medicine, go to Philly dot com and enter her name in the search engine. Or you can try this link ... but you know how I am at linking ...

The easiest way to get on Annie the Cailleach's last nerve is to make fun of "Norma Rae." Christine the Moron starts with that and moves on. You can smell the "let them eat cake" on her breath.

Philly dot com is an open site, and Christine writes every Friday. I have started trolling there, and if you feel moved to do so, I guarantee her ego is large enough that she will read what you write, whether it gets posted or not. Knowing that my fine Pagan readers are tasteful and thoughtful, I unleash you all upon her with the blessings of the bored gods.

Making fun of "Norma Rae" in the face of the protests in Wisconsin? Moron. Now deal with me. I don't get paid to write newspaper columns, but there's some satisfaction in being able to sneer in your general direction. What a waste of a beautiful surname!

DT -Vilda Stamps

DT article - Vilda Stamps

It´s a great honor for us to have the opportunity to work with stamps from Vilda Stamps!
They have a wide range of different stamps which fits most people.
Please visit their webshop if you're looking for something new and exceptionally.
We promise you, you will not be disappointed!
(they even have Dutch, Finish, English and some German textstamps!!)

Here are some words from Vilda Stamps;
 (first in swedish, then in English)

 "Vilda Stamps HB startades av Puck, Ulrica & Christine som brinner för kort- och scrapbooking.
Vårt mål var att kunna erbjuda kortmakare och scrappare ett brett sortiment av unika stämplar.
Vi slog upp portarna till vår e-butik i maj 2010 med en kollektion på ett
100-tal egendesignade motiv.

Butikens sortiment består endast av våra omonterade stämplar,
akrylklossar och ett och annat EZ-foam.

Idag tio månader senare består vår kollektion av över 600 motiv,
vilka vi själva tillverkar från designerns skiss, eller i vissa fall kunders
idéer till färdigtryckta omonterade stämplar.
Detta gör att vi har förhållandevis korta leveranstider till alla våra kunder.

Vi är väldigt lyckligt lottade med våra duktiga designers som skapar till oss,
vilket gör att vi har en otrolig bredd av olika sorters motiv, allt från kaxigt till gulligt.

Vi försöker även att erbjuda våra kunder, ca 4 gånger om året, ett hemligt kit med olika teman,
vilket blivit otroligt uppskattat.

Idag driver vi inte bara vår e-butik, vi grossar även alla våra motiv och
akrylklossar till ett 40-tal butiker över hela världen.

Vi medverkar på mässor och träffar både i Sverige och utomlands, då vi tycker
att kundkontakten är viktig
samt för att få feedback på vad vi gör, och vad kunderna önskar/saknar.

Parallellt med e-butiken har vi en inspirationsblogg som är väl värt ett
besök: där vårt underbara duktiga DT-team
lägger in ny inspiration varje dag.

Välkommen att besöka oss i vår e-butik eller på
mässor som vi närvarar vid, mer info om var och när finner ni i vår e-butik."

Puck, Ulrica & Christine

"Vilda Stamps HB was started by Puck, Ulrica & Christine
with a passion for cards and scrapbooking.
Our goal was to offer cardmakers and scrapbookers a wide range of unique stamps.

We opened the doors to our webshop in May 2010 with a collection of 100 self-designed motifs.

In our store you can find our unmounted stamps, acrylic blocks and EZ-foam.

Today, ten months later, our collection consists of over 600 designs, which
we manufactures the designer's sketch, or in some cases, customers
ideas to the finished printed unmounted stamps.
This means that we have relatively short delivery times to all our customers.

We are very fortunate with our talented designers who creates for us,
which means we have an incredible width of different kinds of motives,
ranging from cocky to sweet.
Four times a year we also offer our customers a secret kit with different themes, 
which have become incredibly popular!
Today we are not only having our webshop, we also sell all our motives and
acrylic blocks to about 40 stores worldwide.

We participate in conventions and crops in both Sweden and abroad, because we think that the contact with the costumer is important.
And it´s also great to get feedback on what we do and what customers wants /missing.

In parallel with the webshop, we have an inspirational blog that is well worth a
visit: where our wonderful talented DT Team
add new inspiration every day.

You are also welcome to visit us at our webshop or
fairs that we attend, more details about when and where, you will find in our webshop."
