  1. Wow, that horoscope was remarkably direct! I don't think I've had one keep growing like that, but sometimes one has grumbled or whispered a bit, to get my attention. Now that I'm home every day, life has evened out and I seldom read them any more.

    1. Hey Nancy! Lovely to see you! I think you've just crept out a bit of wisdom there - Horoscopes are about feeding our hope for change, for better things. And when we're where we want to be, and we are content, they cease to be useful. Indigo x

    1. Hey Max! Oh. I assumed you'd written it? The newspaper trick was VERY you. Roth

  3. If I had that horoscope I'd print it out to use in place of a doctor's note.

  4. How rude of me... I forgot to add, "Feel better soon!"

    1. Hey Paula! No problemo. Life is beating me with a stick at the moment, but I'm staying cheery by choosing my battles. And in nine days time, after I finish this 30 day challenge with Kato, I can have a pizza. Just a small one, you understand... Indigo x

  5. Or as I like to say, God tickles you with a feather and if you don't listen, he hits you with a brick. Beware the bricks, my friend.

    I'm suddenly craving cereal with bananas and strawberries.

    1. Hey Jayne! Those are wise words, ma'm'selle. I can be a bit dense at times, and have my best NFL headgear on. In case I missed the feather. Indigo x

    1. Hey Eolist! A day wasted asleep is never a day wasted in my book. If you can do it, you probably needed it. As for being on the cusp, I feel sorry for Max; he's on the cusp of Gemini, which gives him three personalities. One of whom can't drive. Roth x

  7. Can you please pick up the paper from wherever you left it and read the horoscope for Aquarius? I could use a sick day. Thanks and hope you're feeling better.

    1. Hey Nicky! Aquarius reads (somewhat cryptically, I think) - "Did you remember to turn the penguin down?". Eight letters, with a V in the second position. No wait, that's the crossword. Roth x

  8. So somebody we know is having a birthday in the not too distant future? This horoscope is just trying to make sure you make it to your big day.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    1. Hey Jenny! Thank you! And actually, I do, yes. Domino's UK vouchers for preference. Or treat yourself to a tee from the Zazzle site (I'll get a few cents of it =) Kisses are always welcome, tho only on the actual day. That would be saucy otherwise. Indigo x

  9. It's better than calling in sniped and gored.

    We used to call in sick. It helped to have laryngitis. Sounded more sincere. Then we went over to a national robo-call. We'd try hard to answer all the questions right but halfway through the voice would say "I THINK you said bleagh-heh-eh-heh-blorgg. Is that correct?" It never worked. After twenty minutes we'd give up and let them figure it out when we didn't show up.

    1. Hey Murr! I once arrived badly trampled and gored, and they still made me produce a doctor's certificate. Clearly they regard me as an ingenious fella. Automated phone systems will be regarded with the same contempt as digital watches in a few years, so Press #2 to bear with them for now. Roth x

  10. Well, thank goodness you called off! You certainly don't want to "be a shattered wreck of a man, wrung dry like an old dishmop." You nut. :)
    I love your merchandise (That's what she said. Wink wink, nudge nudge...)
    Most of all, THANK YOU for visiting me, and for putting me on your blogroll!! So amazingly kind. You will be on mine by the end of this weekend. :)

    1. Hey Dawn! So... you like my "wares", eh? *nudge nudge* Few do, or so I seem to recall. It's been a while. And you're very welcome; you seem a bit bonkers, and I can't have enough of those about =) Indigo

    1. Hey Savannah! Good grief, working from home sounds ideal; I must look into it. Now, where can I get a fortune from? Hmmm... Indigo x

  13. I've never believed in Astrology. I don't get the appeal.

    1. Hey Zibbs! Ten years ago I was steeped in science, and couldn't believe there was anything else. Now? Not so sure. I'm of no religious persuasion, but I've come to believe that just because I have no use for something, and can see no way for it to be true, I'm far less inclined to dismiss it. I heard recently - "Only the madman is absolutely certain." This had a point when I set out; if you see it go past, please jump on it. Roth

  14. Wow. I would have just listened to the first paragraph. It doesn't take much for me to call in 'sick'.

    I am glad you stayed home...what would we do without you? xo

    1. Oooh dear Kato, that "bit of a cough" you have sounds serious. I'd stay home and sit quietly playing a game. With tea. And buns. But no pizza. Indigo x

    1. Hey Mia! I think you've been poorly enough recently, without help from "beyond the veil". Like Kato, you should rest up and try to relax. Perhaps with a hot pool boy? Just a thought. Indigo x

  16. The horoscopes in the States are never that specific!

    1. Hey Pearl!

      No? Well, be careful what you wish for. For example, CAPRICORN:

      "Your two cats are stealing and selling your blood while you sleep. But it's for your own good, Pumpkin. nevertheless, beware their ambition, and count your kidneys whenever you wake up. Unless you're in a bath of ice, tho this may be a false positive. And call your Mother."
