Come and get me, guys, you know I’d love it if you did!

Fine, silly title, relevant to most of the blog, as you will soon discover. But firstly…

My plan had been to post yesterday, given it was the centenary of 2 major events, one happy, one very sad. Given events, that caused me to need to travel over to Bradford, and back, it never happened. But I cannot go without mentioning them. The special one for me, the 100th birthday of the actress, Olivia De Havilland, probably best known to most, as Melanie, in Gone With The Wind. One of the few actresses left from that era, and almost certainly the most famous one, for that, and other roles.

The sad one, 100 years ago yesterday marked the beginning of the Battle Of The Somme, and the futile loss of so many brave young lives. Thousands died within the first hour, let alone the first day, and by the end of that battle, a million lives, on both sides had been lost. These brave men were led by fools, and deserve to be remembered for their brave gesture.

And fine, you might still have got that, but for something I discovered this morning. Yes, seriously, today is World UFO Day! Which explains the blog title, given my love of all such matters.

The first thing that amazed me, is that we actually have a World UFO Day. I mean, I can understand a few areas which might want to celebrate it, but I would have thought that if there were actually aliens here (or nearby), the last thing they’d want is publicity! Dont get me wrong, I’d love them to be real, I’d love for them to come and get me, take me on a flight, and hey, I’d certainly let them probe me as payment for that! Hey, if they want to take me on a long distance flight to their own planet, yes please! Lets face it, me, I’d see tampering with my mind, and/or body as a bonus!

Sadly, so far, no friendly (or otherwise) alien has appeared to whisk me off to their space craft, or otherwise. Believe me, I’d love you guys to turn up and do it. Bringing me back would only be optional too! No, I dont really expect it to happen, but hey, a girl can dream, on this day at least. So, if any alien should pick this blog up, I’m waiting for you to come and get me, eagerly!

The video, one of few I could think of that actually has aliens in it. I did use this before, but it was 3 years ago, and not one of the popular blogs from that era, so lets run with it again.

Not all UFO’s fly!

99 times out of 100, when anyone mentions a UFO, everyone thinks of those cute craft that aliens visit our planets in, while doing a fly by. But what do you know, I’ve found a UFO that doesnt fly, it floats! For more details, see the article

http://www.disclose.tv/news/you_can_travel_the_world_via_the_ocean_in_this_floating_ufo_home/130457

Yes, I think its fair to say, this is based on the classic UFO look, and fine, I love it. Yes, as you can guess from a few photos I’ve posted of late, I prefer the flying kind, but yes, as somewhere to live for a short time, this would be fun! No, I’m pretty sure I have as much chance of getting in one of these, as I have of getting into one of the space craft kind!

But, yes, I can think of more than a few places in the world, where living in that would be absolutely amazing. It says you can travel the world in it, though I cant see anywhere saying what the top speed is, but I doubt its very fast. But if you were in it, on the Great Barrier Reef, for example, you’d want to travel pretty slowly, I guess?

Yes, I wouldnt mind wearing an alien suit while in it, or maybe a Creature from the Black Lagoon suit would be more apt, I must admit, but just being me, might be fun.

Right, the video. I have no idea how this song ever became a one hit wonder in the seventies, but it did. It hasnt aged well, so maybe its best to pass it by, but it was about as apt a song as I could think of, for this

Oh, and lastly, for those who wondered if I would do it, yes, I have. Applied speculatively to ESPN re a certain baseball role, that is. If anyone wants to tell the Careers dept at ESPN how good a presenter I would make, feel free to do so!

Calling occupants of alien space craft.

A few things have brought about this blog. Firstly, one of my favorite characters to use in stories, CJ (yes, the modern edition of Clara Johnson) has been involved in a couple of fun skirmishes with a group of aliens of late, of an interesting kind, and secondly, the old chestnut of whether we really have had aliens visit our planet, live on our planet, or indeed abduct people to space craft in the middle of nowhere came about today.

Now I know you’re going to ask, do I, despite all logic saying otherwise (in terms of distance), believe that aliens have been to, are on Earth? Yes, you gather from the way I put that, I’m going to say yes. I know, at speeds we know of being able to travel, and the distances involved, it doesnt seem likely. But equally, who knows what technology may be out there in deep space, way beyond our comprehension, or horizons? Lets just say that there is a lot of secrecy involved in a small area of New Mexico for good reason, and leave it at that!

Yes, thats where the alien part of my story was set up for, no surprise, I guess? And yes, cute little flying saucer type space craft were most definitely involved. Fine, my story, and what happened to CJ in it, are pure fiction, but its fun to think that just maybe…?

As to whether alien life actually lives currently on Earth, who knows? Quite possibly, though I’m pretty sure its safe to say that they have either taken human body forms, or taken over selected human bodies. Lets go no further with that, OK? But equally, if you’re asking me if we really are the only beings in this corner of the universe, my guess would be no, but due to their far superior technology, we only find know it, if and when they want us to!

Who, me? Would I love a flight in one of those space craft, you bet I would. I cant say that anal probing is really my thing, but if thats the price I have to pay, I’ll go along with it. And of course, if they want to probe, and do other wicked things to my mind, no complaints whatsoever! Please do, in fact!

So what do you believe? Are we really the only sentient beings in the universe, or are there others out there? Either to visit us in the future, or have they already done so, or even are they already amongst us? Well?

OK, to the video. Firstly, the version of this song everyone knows, the full length track, with classic video

But then, did you know? Did you know, that is in fact a cover version of the song, because most people dont. This in fact is the original version, sounding very different in places. Sadly, no live version to be found, maybe the aliens have got one? 😉

Rocket Man

Or perhaps more specifically in my case, Rocket Girl, maybe? Yes, its kink time, friends, one it seems that isnt just mine.

Now I can show my age lol. Back in the 60’s, especially once the Apollo missions were planning for, and then going to the moon, we got TV coverage of everything. Well, alright, maybe not quite non stop coverage of the flight, but you get my drift? But the one thing that took my attention as a child was the Astronaut suit, and helmet, and thinking how much fun it would be to wear one of those. But back then, space flight was a ‘mans thing’ and I doubt designing one for a woman was a thought they never even considered. I dont know if they made replica ones for children, I dont remember seeing any, but suspect they did. But lets face it, they would have been aimed at boys anyway!

No thought of course went into just how heavy the real things must have been to wear though!

What probably appealed to me more, was the cartoon versions, with the girl in the cute, sexy space outfit, and sometimes a helmet, sometimes not. So in that sense,  ‘real life’ TV series like Space 1999 and UFO appealed to me more, female space pilots in cute craft, not great big rockets! But a non scientifically minded Brit was never going to become an astr0naut for real, back then, that was for sure. I believe Captain Scarlett also had female pilots long before they became reality?

I know that ‘if you have the money’ space travel for the public isnt that far off, even if it is only a few orbits of Earth, and nothing more. But no, I havent got the money, and youth has passed me by, so I cant see me being amongst them. Though to be honest, unless they provide spacesuits for you to wear, I probably wouldnt find it that much fun anyway! Cute little solo flight spacecraft, and ray guns still seem a fair way off though lol! Maybe I just never grew too old for dressing up ? 😉

Right, the video, and yes, I’m going to show stage my current favourite unknown artist, Gary Simmons. You might have guessed the song from the title, its that Elton John classic. Why this guy isnt a major star, I just dont know.
