I doubt we’re alone now

OK, someone was messing me around in the flotation tank this afternoon, and my eye would cast a suspicious glance in the direction of Clara Johnson on that front? No, I’m sure it wasnt, but…

What would normally happen is that I’d get in the pod, get comfortable, turn the light out, and then soon after that, the new world type music would start up for 10 minutes, then fade away for 45 minutes of complete silence, before the music starts up again, 5 minutes from the end, to get me ‘back to normal’ again, before the light comes back on, and get out, back into the boring real world again!

Today, well, the music never started up, but my mind quickly blanked out regardless, and after a little while, Clara broke through the ‘barrier’ and proceeded to have her fun, until the music actually started up, as I later found out, 10 minutes from the end! I mean, I thought the closing music was going on a bit longer than normal, but it was only when the light didnt come on, that I put 2 and 2 together, and made mischief! Even more so, when after climbing out, it didnt start the instant filtration process.

Anyway, got outside after shower, and dressing, and reported it to the owner. Seems something had gone wrong with the system, but anyway, I’m sure Clara wasnt really to blame, lol…? I did offer to finish off the hour from when it actually started, jokingly, but no, was never serious about that. But was it Clara making mischief, was she trying to play with my mind by changing the normal routine, who really knows? Suppose I’d just imagined that was actually the start of my hour, what games did she have planned for my mind? Not that I’d mind, but…?

So, when I got home tonight, what did Eric put on TV, and tease me about? Yes, you guessed it, my alien ‘relatives’! That combined with one of those silly Twitter trends, along the lines of ‘Aliens Are Probably Thinking’ as soon as I log into there just amused me no end. I’m one of those who love to think there really are aliens out there, and would love a ride in one of their space crafts, if any happen to read this. I can pass happily on the Anal Probing, but if its the only way I get to fly in an alien spacecraft, bring it on! I’d still love to get a really nice, ideally figure clinging (or reasonably clinging) alien suit for my Birthday, if anyone wants to treat me, if only to see Eric’s face when I walked in wearing it! No, I’m a part time, disabled worker, so paying out for silly things like that, not really going to happen, before anyone just tells me to get one! Being able to get out of it again, having put it on, purely optional! 😉

So today, I’ve had a day where I felt far from alone. Firstly, Clara taking charge, and having her fun, and then the thoughts of Aliens messing with my mind, and/or body, and living here on this planet, or offering me a ride through the solar system. All about as likely as me dancing like the pro Clara was, at Blackpool, but anyway…

OK, video time. Some vintage Tiffany, as an opposite to my day

2019, the avenue I might be being taken to

OK, if anyone can spot the (almost) line of lyrics, I’m impressed. Well, there are a couple who might get it, but otherwise?

In truth, 2019 is probably the least pre-planned year that I’ve had in a very long time. Lets face it, the May holiday is not only usually planned by now, its either booked, or just about to be booked. This year, not a clue what I’m doing! And though September has got some tentative plans, in the sense that both Kate and I have agreed, both health permitting, that we will get together ‘somewhere’ at that point. Its fair to say that it will in all likelihood be either, Oklahoma, or New England, but beyond that…? No, no commitments!

The one thing that is sure, is that before either of those, there will be 2 trips to Blackpool. First one in just over 3 weeks time, which will be the pre-publicity event for the Film Festival in March, on my Birthday weekend. This time, the latter is already planned as a longer stay, from Thursday, to Monday, as I can do work, and enjoy myself for the whole weekend. Numerous anniversaries that week, and a theme of Hollywood glamour, which should all be a lot of fun. Seems quite likely I will get to have a ‘Clara Johnson’ moment on the Friday of that weekend, for which I might now be a little old, but will be a dream come true. But more on that at the end.

Other than those, most of the known events for the year are of the less cheery kind. Firstly, and most obviously, is the state of my body. How long the back is going to last, even on a 4 day week, even with TLC (including that heavenly flotation/sensory deprivation tank), I have no idea! There is also the fact that I now have big issues with 1 wrist, and I have a hunch the other might only be biding its moment, and…? Given that now, with my wrist damage, that I’d have issues preparing, and cooking a proper meal, on top of everything else, I have been told I ought to at least try for PIP (disability related) benefit payments, because lets face it, my mobility, in a stamina sense is also becoming a bigger issue by the month. I’m sort of determined I will get to March (for obvious reasons), but in a serious sense, what used to be a stroll to work is now getting a challenge at the end. Oh fine, it is a challenge, but anyway… If you want a resolution (ghastly things), that had probably better be mine!

Yes, any politician offering to reduce the retirement age for women can have my vote, lol! 61, I’d be thrilled, 62, or 63 I could see as a target, but beyond that, not sure its going to happen? No, I know, not going to happen in reality, but would help me so much.

OK, Brexit, lets try and be diplomatic. Especially given the government are seemingly terrified of having a vote on their escape plan, rolls eyes. I could give my view on the ‘threat’ from the government that if they dont win, Brexit wont happen, and say that not everyone would be sorry if that came to place. Its not what the voters were promised at the referendum (we found that out within a few days), so is it any wonder that hardly anyone, on either side of the fence wants to vote for it? Fine, I voted Remain, but besides all that…

Alright, lets get to cricket. This summer will see the first ever test match between England, and Ireland at Lords, a pretty historic moment for we Irish cricket supporters. Yes, I’d probably have got an Irish passport at the last renewal in truth, but my Irish ancestry is 1 generation too far back for that. Even more I’d love to do that now, as so many others are seemingly doing. Nothing to do with the Brexit chaos of course. And if you believe that…?

Oh fine, you want some silly wishes for the year, I guess? Things I’d love to happen, but are only likely in my dreams?

Lets start off with the obvious one, which actually gives me more issues than work? Yes, travel. What I wouldnt give for a cute flying saucer/space shuttle, if a passing alien reads this, to whisk me to work, without strain, oh please! There are some ‘Just Eat’ adverts on TV over here, where the motorbike delivery people have bikes that fly, wouldnt say no to one of them, either!

Clearly, with my health issues, I’d love a full body upgrade. Chrome robot look would be heaven, but a more human looking fembot body would probably be more advisable. If so, if it can come looking about 20, with pre programmed dancing skills, I’d love that.

Oh, and fine, I’d love that sensory deprivation tank to really mess with my mind, as well as heal my body. Brainwashed, or mind controlled, while in that pod, oh please!

Lastly, a sugar daddy, or mummy (I’m bi, lets face it) to put this ‘Broadway Baby’ in her own apartment, somewhere warm/hot all year round, would love that. But fine, who would want an old lady like me for that, lol?

Right, lets get to the video. That Friday night in March, in Blackpool. One of the show moments is a local dance team, performing from 42nd Street. (At least) 2 of us are hoping to at least make cameo performances on that sequence. Will be the closest I ever get to replicating Clara Johnson without that new body, for sure! No, I’m certain I wont be this good, but some of this might be involved, so…

 

Are they out there?

Around this time last year, something entered the solar system, and people began to take note. Oumuamua as it was called seemed to be a comet, or an asteroid or something that was passing us by, then heading back out into deep space unknown.

Anyway, recently, people have been questioning if it wasnt something more? Like an alien spacecraft of some kind, either an actual craft, or alien probe? Could be a probe, I guess, sent to recover data from this solar system from somewhere beyond our knowledge, maybe? An actual craft, I have my doubts, even though it accelerated, and decelerated, it would surely have come in for closer contact to Earth, if it was actually manned, to try and work out those strange beings on the planet?

All I know is, it wasnt someone delivering my flying saucer/space craft, which was a great shame!

Me, I suspect its nothing more than said flying comet, asteroid or another rock form we didnt know could exist, but fine, I personally would love it to be aliens, but if so, why didnt they come and get me! 😛

Will we ever know now, for sure, probably not, but it does make you think, or I hope it does.

Right, video time. I only wish I could find a live version of this brilliant song, but even though The Osmonds still perform it (of sorts), they segue it into another song, which means you miss out on much of this glorious work. So yes, for once, a stationary video, lol.

Just to add, there will not be the usual blog on Thursday, as I’m going out that evening. Sadly, no, not for a trip in a flying saucer with some passing aliens. So next blog will be at some point over the weekend, but not from the UK. A place beginning with P, in fact. Could be Pluto, could be Proxima Centauri, but far more likely to be Portugal! 😛

I’d wear it well?

There are a couple of things responsible for tonight’s blog, one is a Facebook memory from 2 years ago (they are occasionally useful), and the other is Eric’s TV viewing this afternoon. Oh, and the outfit in the picture here, blame Stacie too! Or love her, anyway. I’d love anyone to get it for me, or something similar, thats for sure.

Anyway, there is, seemingly, something called UFO day, and it happens on 24th June for most. Seems that some celebrate 2nd July, due to first Roswell sighting, but its the former that clearly caught my eye 2 years ago. Which caused me to post, on that day…

CJ and Toddspacecraft

in tribute to said day. No, very sadly, I dont own any of them, I only wish I did, especially the more luxuriously sized one in the first picture. Unfortunately, as far as I know, alien delivery of said craft is still very much to be advised lol! 😛 Would make flying to US a whole lot easier, and quicker, for sure!

As to what I’d want to wear for the flight, well, the spacesuit that lady is wearing is pretty cool, I must say. But fine, this would be a whole lot more fun, for sure, and I would love to have this suit for myself, if anyone is offering?

alien-suit

Yeah, could you imagine the fun, an actual alien, flying a space craft like that, giggle? As I say, thanks to Stacie for that pic.

Lastly, as is his want from time, to time, Eric likes to tease me (well, I assume its tease?) by watching these programs on strange TV channels about all these Alien spacecraft and the like being seen by folks in the US. Yes, I had one of those afternoons today lol. Lets just say that if Aliens want to come and get me, give me a space flight, transform me into an alien, or just have some, err, fun with me, I’d love it. No, I’m not expecting too many obliging viewers of this blog in the Solar System, or beyond, but a lady can hope!

Equally, as I say, if someone wants to generously buy me a really nice alien suit to wear (transformation capable, or otherwise), then I would be a happy old lady!

Right, video time. What I’m sure people would say of me, wearing that alien suit, flying that spacecraft… Of course, it might be wearing me, instead of me wearing it? 😉

 

 

High flying lady?

Before I get started here, I have to thank Eric Woodhouse for inspiring me to write this, due to a long running ‘joke’ between the 2 of us. Sadly, unfortunately, he hasnt gone as far as actually buying me a nice alien suit (which if I had, I’d definitely wear) to really allow his statement to become real. Oh, and yes, I would truly love it, if someone did! So if anyone has some money to spare, to make an old ladies day…?

Yes, I know, before anyone says anything, the thing I’m renowned for wanting ‘to be’ is a robot, lets face it, the clue is in the title of the blog series. But as he, and my dear friend Stacie both know, I fancy being an alien almost as much. Yes, I’d really love a flying saucer, or space craft, but they’re probably a bit trickier to find than a really nice alien suit, lol! 😛

The other thing is, Eric has a habit of watching something called the History Channel over here. I assume its also on in the US, but whether like TCM, they have entirely different programming, no idea. Yes, US TCM would be my scene, UK version, definitely not!

Anyway, said History Channel seems to cover all sorts of ‘crazy’ subject matter, and one of their favorites at present is, you’ve guessed it, aliens! Oh, and of course that involves that wonderful area known as Area 51, and UFO’s, of course.

Let me say I’m not going to make a call about Area 51, Aliens, abductions, UFO’s, and the sort. Me, I’d love them to be real, and if they are, I’d love for them to come and prove it to me! In truth, I suspect Area 51 is far less sensation than portrayed, and as a fellow writer commented, its not Area 51 we need to concern ourselves about, its probably the surrounding areas that are a little more top secret. After all, if aliens are real, and on Earth, a decoy zone. like Area 51 would just be perfect, lets face it. Everybody’s watching that, whereas nearby, the really interesting stuff is really happening!

So yes, should any studios, or other production areas need an actress to dress up in a really enclosing alien suit, please, please let me at least audition for the role, full costume naturally! 😉 Even better if its err, hard to get out of, after putting on, lol!

Anyway, to amuse my readers, I found this picture on Twitter this morning, and thought how perfect it would be to be the model for that shot!

alien self

 

Apologies for the writing with it, but it is rather good, and I lack the technical skills to remove it anyway! Jokingly posted it as me, without makeup, which of course it isnt, but whether I really look a lot better, hmm? But yes, watching the baseball (as I am now), dressed like that would just be so much fun. Pluto Pirates against the Neptune Mets, maybe? Lol!

Equally, if some aliens want to save me spending so long on a standard air flight to Seattle in May, by flying me in a space craft, or flying saucer, oh please! Refuel in Area 51, hmm? 😉 Of course, if they want it to take about 15 hours, by doing a diversion via the moon, say, wink, wink?

So yes, I only wish I could find, and afford a really good alien suit like that, just to wear to get Eric going beautifully. Oh, and Stacie (and probably others) would love to see the pictures too!

OK, video time. I’ve done most of the space songs before, but then I thought of this. Not his biggest hit, by a long stretch (Music is a gorgeous song), but this seems to work?
