Spring and The March Hare

www.wednesdaysattic.com

Spring has arrived and not a moment too soon!
I look forward to lots of spring flowers, and the days growing longer. Happy equinox!

One beacon of Spring is The March Hare.  The March Hare and his madness comes from the springtime crazies displayed by bunnies at this time of year. Perhaps they are jumping for joy at the beauty of Spring!


A long-held view is that the hare will behave strangely and excitedly throughout its breeding season, which in Europe is the month of March (but which in fact extends over several months beyond March).




 This odd behaviour includes boxing at other hares, jumping vertically for seemingly no reason and generally displaying abnormal behavior. An early verbal record of this animal's strange behaviour occurred in about 1500, in the poem Blowbol's Test  where the original poet said:


Thanne þey begyn to swere and to stare, And be as braynles as a Marshe hare

Beware the Ides of March

www.wednesdaysattic.com




The word Ides comes from the Latin word "Idus" and means "half division" especially in relation to a month. It is a word that was used widely in the Roman calendar indicating the approximate day that was the middle of the month. The term ides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months. The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held.



In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date on which Julius Caesar was killed in 44 B.C. Caesar was stabbed (23 times) to death in the Roman Senate by a group of conspirators led by Marcus Junius Brutus and Gaius Cassius Longinus. The group included 60 other co-conspirators according to Plutarch.

Batty Influences in Fashion

Although these are supposed to be costumes, why wouldn't they be worn daily?
I'd wear them. Can someone make these for me? Especially the second one down. I would wear it as a uniform everyday!



Especially this one!

My Cocaine

www.wednesdaysattic.com



So the Husband and I are both with the Plague at the moment, and as we could not get to sleep last night, we were chatting and he mentions how if you say 'my cocaine', out loud, it sounds like Michael Caine saying his own name.

So we proceed to lay there in the dark saying things to each other like. . 'Is that 'my cocaine?', or 'hey, that's my cocaine!', or 'I saw my cocaine here just a few minutes ago!'
and giggling all the while, until we finally slept.
He is feeling much better today, and I somewhat better. I wonder if it was 'my cocaine' that helped?

Angelyne

Angelyne




Angelyne.

Do we really care what her 'real' name is or how old she is, or how much plastic surgery she has had?  I don't. Especially in this town. She is just Angelyne. A unique person with her own courage and style. And the drive to create a distinct persona that is and will always be Angelyne.

You go girl!
