Portents! [Apr. 8th, 2011|02:29 pm]
I've just watched about four dozen crows go into the side yard belonging my neighbor across the street. Several more crows are still flying around above the yard. One to four crows have been perched on the roof of his house or the yard's fence, coming and going, but the rest of the four dozen are hidden behind the fence. I have no idea what they are up to back there.

Should I call the neighbor and let him know that he might be on the verge of a Hitchcockian event? If I warn him, will the crows be aware of what I have done, and perhaps turn their attentions to me? Are crows psychic? Do they read this journal? Am I being paranoid? Are Heckle and Jeckle behind all this?

True, Heckle and Jeckle are magpies, but corvids nonetheless. Are all the world's corvids in league? It seems likely. What do they know that we don't? What are the corvids not telling us about events Libya, for example? Is it because they themselves are responsible for what is happening there? And what about the ongoing disaster at Fukushima? Why are the corvids silent about that, despite the fact that Heckle and Jeckle can talk?

Could corvids be behind Glen Beck's sudden fall from eventual grace at the end of this year? Is it their plan to remove from Fox News the one man who makes the rest of the on-air staff look rational by comparison? But then, does not Rupert Murdoch himself have a rather corvid appearance? Could he not be an ancient raven who has taken human form? But if so, why would he damage his own enterprise?

Perhaps there has been a falling out among the corvids themselves. Murdoch is, after all, Australian, while Jeckle is definitely English— a detested Pommy. Has Murdoch crossed the mighty Jeckle? Are we about to witness a civil war not only among the corvids, but within the British Commonwealth? Will Vancouver be bombed? Will the United States be dragged into it? Should I purchase gold with what little money remains in my bank account? What would Heckle do?

I'm beginning to dislike crows intensely.

Not in any order

1)Heckle would buy corn not gold. you can't eat gold after all

2)If you do call the neighbor you might not want to do it from a glass phone booth, just sayin'

3)Glenn Beck makes most ranting homeless men look sane by comparison.

4)Corvids only work together when there is food involved. So perhaps the neighbor has a secret crop growing behind the fence?

5)The Commonwealth may be pulled into the uprising but the US will only provide air support. ;)

Re: Not in any order

1) Then I shall buy corn. Heckle is cunning.

2) Covered. Almost all of the public telephones have been removed from this town. I suspect the crows of being behind the cell phone companies, competition from which led to this state of things.

3) You are being unnecessarily harsh to the homeless ranters.

4) If the neighbor is growing a secret crop, then he, too, must be in league with the corvids! I shall not attempt to warn him!

5) Air support, surely, but what about arse coverage? Without that, we are doomed!

As long as Heckle and Jeckle aren't behind the DDoS attacks on LJ, I'll try to stay on their good side. It is perilous to have them as foes!
