In Which the Universe Thumbs Its Nose at My Presumption

It was beginning to feel like the death channel around here: all death, all the time.

So in late June I made my first Official Declaration 1 to the Universe:

Official Declaration 1

Hear ye! Hear ye! I officially declare the rest of 2009 to be a death-free year! All things great and small are hereby forbidden to die.

Most Seriously,

Jami La

Controller of All


At which point the Universe began its decimation of the stars.

Excuse me, O Universe, I believe you've gotten my order wrong.

What the heck? Wasn't I clear enough?

What?? I am not in control of the universe?

Oh. Oops. My mistake.

We all make mistakes! Even I have thought I was in control of my family, let alone the universe!

So sorry about your sweet kitties! And sorry about the stars, too! What is Tim Tams? and did you go to Utah to see Crash or did she come see you?

Jami said...

Sadly, my tim-tam moment with CTD has been postponed because they rerouted her flight through Denver. :(

You are funny! Crash gets to meet you? I want to meet you someday...

(Thanks for saving the chickens! You rock!)

I am very surprised at how sad I am at all the celebrity deaths. I thought I was above all that. Only to find out that it feels like my childhood is dying.
