Queen gYgPOPs Inaugural mistYmuse to Close

The four darkest months of winter have passed in the northern hemisphere, and the spring equinox has passed us into having more light than dark, as the Earth’s axis means our planet’s tilt is pointing the north towards the sun on its approximately 365 days journey around our star, as marked by our calendar.

Queen’s Buckingham Palace Garden 

After I spent yesterday writing a lot about my writing on my travel25years site I felt honoured to see the Queen has been celebrating in her garden, with lots of gYgPOPing (greenYgreyPinkyOrangePurple-ing) going on.

With the mist of mistYmuse aimed at 9-5 workers (referring to the 08.30 sunrise times in midwinter) I was also delighted to see the American Queen, Dolly Parton, visit Blighty during the winter light festival to open the 9to5 musical in London.

That’s after ABBA reformed after my XaW Files: Beyond Humanity declared a new age of ABBA while meeting the members as they travelled through Sweden.

mYmories

Some of my mYmories from my blog post yesterday on t25y: I hope the mistYmuse helped those who suffer from SAD (Seasonally Affective Disorder) in the most challenging four months of the year, and entertained everybody.

The weather has been pretty average overall, a mild winter here, but as I’ve stated before, it’s about light rather than weather anyway. Our light is predictable, whereas weather fluctuates. This has been proved true over the last month.

It seemed love was in the air in romantic Valentine February, as the sun shone bright and temperatures rose much higher than normal, creating records, but then March saw a return to wintry weather. Thankfully, sun and warmer weather have now returned.

Not a-muse-d

I would’ve liked to end on a poem, but the muse has gone now! Maybe I will too, until the muse is scheduled to return again for the next mistYmuse on November 21st… no, I didn’t get the call from Dolly to appear in the musical! Hamilton neither !!

I did allow myself to become embroiled in a Media Studies controversy this morning again. Sorry for that, as a white Doctor of Philosopher specialising in the media!

Gemma Chan: ‘‘Why are actors of colour, who have fewer opportunities anyway, only allowed to play their own race?’

Didn’t Amber Rudd get castigated by Diane Abbott and the media for using ‘colour’ recently?

What I wrote on Facebook:

Double standards again. Uses comparison with John Wayne playing Genghis Khan, but there’s been 50 years of media studies complaining about that since, and the ‘whitewashing’ furore of the last decade.
Moreover, many people, including me when young, get their ‘history’ from fiction, so will be misled! At least John Wayne tried to look Mongolian for Khan!

Eight Months Research Break

I’ve still got my books though… mine and my muse’s anyway! If anybody’s got any brilliant work for the best Doctor of Philosophy in Britain and perhaps the world, please get in contact here, at Facebook, LinkedIn or at greenygrey@googlemail.com

Or just read my books, and give them great reviews, and upload your favourite quotes etc to brainyquotes etc. I have done my bit, reaching for our star, and am now retiring my mind to it, until being brought back to Earth by the mistYmuse of 2019/20… maybe see you then…

Congratulations on Royal Baby from Greenygrey World

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I’ve heard that Kate and William have been receiving congratulations from around the world for the birth of their son, so I thought I would add my congratulations from the Greenygrey world. And I’d also like to thank Kate for holding on until the greenygrey weather returned to Blighty for the birth.

New Star Foretells Birth? Lightning Follows

This blog starts with lightning photographed after the royal birth, and ends with an image of a new star seen early on the day of the birth.

Royal Baby Name Update

The odds on Greenygrey being chosen as the royal baby’s name must have shortened with all the greenygrey weather.

I think that adding a historic name would also be a good idea, and that Æthelwulf would go nicely with Greenygrey.

Æthelwulf was the King of Wessex in the 9th century, and is the father of Alfred the Great. Æthelwulf is Old English for ‘noble wolf’. In those days Britain was pretty similar to Native American culture.

We also think that the weather conditions could be remembered in the name.

So that brings us to our final name proposal for the royal baby, and our hope that in the late twenty-first century there will be a King Greenygrey Æthelwulf Thunderylightning I sitting on the throne.

Pagan Representative

There was a representative from the animal kingdom there this morning, making it seem quite pagany.

It wasn’t a wolf unfortunately, but it was just about the next best thing: an eagle.

It was apparently brought to the palace after people were disappointed it was not the messenger of the royal birth, after people mixed eagle up with easel: news of the birth was first presented on an easel.

Eagle not the messenger.

A Bright New Star Foretold the Royal Birth

I thought the royal birth might happen yesterday when I saw a bright new star appear in the morning Sky… oh no, it was in fact the BBC.

It was Hacker T. Dog, the brightest new anthropomorphic star we’ve seen since Alexandr Orlov burst onto our screen in the Compare the Meerkat (Market) adverts; and best puppet since Gordon the Gopher.

Hacker was on form with Bill and Susanna on the breakfast sofa.

We wish both the royal baby and Hacker the best for the future; as well as all the other new life born in the last couple of days…
