I guess by now people who know me or even just read my blog are ready for just about anything because I can be a total fruitcake. THis is going to be one of thost total fruitcake things, too. And I know how cheesy it's going to sound on Christmas Eve, but here it is.

There's a really weird light in the sky and I don't know what the hell it is. Okay, so my first, honest to god thought was, "Holy crap, there is a Santa Claus," but then I saw where it was coming from and, well, I still have no idea what it is and I'm still really confused.

I should point out that, remember a few weeks ago when I posted that I saw a really scary and uncool thing flying in low and fast after Kung Fu one night? That was on a Wednesday. Last Wednesday I actually saw something similar, except it was totally stationary. So I thought, you know, maybe some new radio tower went up or something. Then when I checked again on Monday, it wasn't there anymore.

This light I'm seeing now is coming from exactly that direction, which is southwest of here. It's north of Orion and goes right across the Pleides.

It's this huge beam of light, really thick and really, really bright. It looks like a spotlight of some kind, but then I've never heard of a spotlight this freaking bright, and that doesn't move. It's not coming from the ground and going up into the sky, either; it's just straight across the sky. It's been there for over two hours. When I saw it earlier I thought it was a really long and bright cloud (even though the waning moon is nowhere near the west yet.) The other thing is, it's really high up. Two planes went through it, two planes at a really high altitude, and they both left vapor trails. I don't think I've ever seen a vapor trail at night unless it was across the moon. I mean, that's how bright this damn thing is.

The other thing is that the sky is hugely clear tonight. The stars haven't been this bright in weeks.

Yes, I am a fruitcake, but there is a really weird, bright, huge, stationary beam of light in the sky, and I'm all WTF about it. I tried to video tape it, but I suspect my camera is way too crappy for that. I'm going to go out again before I go to bed and look at it once more.

And here, before I went out for the second time and saw that it was still there, I had this whole big movie review in my head for The Brothers Grimm, and now I've forgotten most of it. The key points: slow in the beginning, fun from the middle on. Worth the price of the DVD for the entire long, drawn out scene of spoilers ) not because I'm trying to be ghoulish, but because I am, after all, TraumaWhore, and because Matt Damon is a thing of beauty, and you know what Keats said about the Grecian urn, that a thing of beauty is a joy forever, especially when it's on DVD and you can watch the thing of beauty over and over and over again, and it doesn't even matter that the Grecian urn just got married to some bartender because it is still a really hot Grecian urn.

There is a really weird light in the sky, people.

Holy crap, my parents got me an effing sweet telescope!

As well as two of Leonard Cohen's novels, his CD "Dear Heather", Nick Cave's "Murder Ballads," the first season of House, The Elegant Universe, the Best of Michael Palin dvd, the talking Spanish Inquisition plushie, and two T shirts from thinkgeek! (The Schrodinger's Cat one, and the "all my base are belong to you" one.) As well as slippers, socks, PJs, and the Llewellen's calander.

My 2nd cousins Branden and Zack got me a windchime, my cousin Chrissie and her husband Tim got me an implement bag (Chrissie dind't even know that was what it was, she thought it just had an awesome Hawaiian print on it--it's really beautiful and I so needed one) and a flag for the yard with a little white Saluki on it. Too cute.

I forgot to list these on Friday: Spencer and Meghan got me a Jack and Sally zip up sweater, and Meghan got me (the obligatory Godmother gift,) a T shirt that has the Zelda crest on it in green, with "ZELDA" written in white letters over it, and underneath it it says, "House Of Link." How cool is that? I'm wearing it right now.

SUPERFLY!
