Holly Wallaby? Comforting Comedy for Celebrity Juice Holly Willoughby Fans

Holly Willoughby Celebrity Juice fans had some bad news this week, with HW pulling out of the show, putting it at risk of ending. This blog post provides similar humour, that I thought of before that news.

Introducing Holly Wallaby (Willoughby):

A combination of posting about Holly Willoughby and the Werewolf of Oz (WoO) ebook being free to download on Smashwords until the end of the month; and Frank Skinner reminding me of Shaggy, and how the real town of Humpty Doo in Australia became a combo of Humpty Dumpty and Scooby Doo in WoO inspired me to think of combining Willoughby and wallaby for Holly Wallaby!
WoO did of course star another hoochie coochie Holly: Miss Valance, who became Mrs. Candy that year (2012). The Wizard of Oz theme travellers encountered a Simpsons/South Park-style Holly Valance in the real town of Riddell’s Creek, inspiring the Best and Scrumptious Bubble and Squeak riddle storyline, previously posted on this very website.
Best of luck to them all, and I hope you enjoy the image/book if you hear of them!!

Michael Gove: Muslims Matter More than Pagans, Buddhists, Hindus etc

Michael Gove’s Muslim/Monotheist bias; and therefore paganophobia; evidence of why I’ve largely been censored in UK?: At start of yesterday’s coronavirus conference (41 minutes into this news programme) he singles out Muslims and Ramadan in particular, and then mentions Christians and Jewish suffering similar.

No mention of pagans spending first spring without loved ones, or Buddhists, Hindus, Taoists etc!

Why the ‘Establishment’ also ignored the mostly Muslim child grooming scandal of the last 30 years… or it’s just economic, and the ‘Muslim (Saudi mostly!) pound’; another aspect to why Britain was kept open at the start of the coronavirus crisis later than most other European countries despite warnings from many; especially Italy and Spain!?

The mayor of Lombardy even took his children home from university to the region worst hit at the time, because he thought Britain was doing it all wrong (no airport checks, sport continuing etc), and was going to suffer worse than them if they carried on; he’s been proved right!!

Johnson Son: Another coincidental prophecy?

Yesterday at 13.05 I posted on Facebook: ‘Boris has become Jesusson instead of Johnson for some since Easter rising.’  I  referenced the Jesus’ Son 1999 movie starring Billy Crudup, Samantha Morton, Holly Hunter, Jack Black, Denis Leary and Dennis Hopper.

I’d been meaning to write it since hearing Ian Hislop mention it on the topical quiz show Have I Got News For You two Fridays ago. He’d said some of the right-wing press had used that reference after Johnson left hospital on the Easter weekend.

He hadn’t combined them I like I did though, thinking of Scandinavian names that work like that, or referenced the Jesus’ Son movie: my additions to previous scholarship, using academic language.

I’d forgotten all about the expected Johnson baby when I wrote it.

Then today it was announced the Johnsons had a healthy son last night, born much earlier than most expected!

Another coincidental prophecy?

Half Year Hair Personal Experiment

After yesterday’s blog had photos of me, a doctor of philosophy, at the start of October 2019, half a year later of not cutting hair or shaving over the coldest six months; and  self-isolating ‘beyond humanity‘ nearly all the time!; which included mistYmuse 2019/20, I looked like this:

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…

Poetry in Motion Princess Kate Remembers What Made Her Great

I was disappointed Princess Kate seemed to have become a Calamity Kate recently, buying a shotgun as Britain goes weapons crazy!

Kate Returns to Form

So I was delighted to see Princess Kate return to great greenYgrey form on a visit to Blackpool recently (maybe tangerine would have been more fitting though?), sporting big green and grey, and a little yellow in the arrow symbol of her handbag and the umbrella handle.

So I wrote this Folding Mirror poem to celebrate, adapting it from a spontaneous poem that seeped down effortlessly from the unconscious, and that is included below the FM one.

 Swapping Shotgun for Umbrella, Remembering gYg Princess Era

Princess Kate taking up shooting
was like a poisoned ↑
through my greenYgrey wolf ♥.
Seeing  symbol on handbag
like Y in disguise
deflated, like crushed umbrella.

is T a good umbrella symbol, between windy Y and deflated ↑

Thankfully, brolly she’s holding
in stormy Blackpool photo
sheltered her from rain.
One day when sunny again
Kate will consider birdsong celebrations
more important than dinner conversations.

The original poem posted on Facebook.

Princess Kate taking up shooting
was like a poisoned arrow
through my greenYgrey heart
but seeing the symbol on her handbag
I see it’s just like a Y in disguise
deflated like a storm-broken umbrella.

Thankfully, the brolly she’s holding
in the stormy Blackpool photo
sheltered her from the rain
and one day when the sun shines
Kate will consider birdsong celebrations
more important than dinner conversations.

Stella Of Silbury, Sending Out Space: SOS… x2… Voulez-Vous… Knowing Me Knowing You?

Having seen the Silbury Hill mystery POP (PinkyOrangePurple) cloud that looked like rocket smoke yesterday, and then finding this StellaDrone epic space music today, some (neurons in my mind, like the Numskulls of comic fame, and Inside Out characters of movie stardom) are wondering if it was Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno of the greenYgrey world (inspired by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld and Sacha Baron-Cohen’s Bruno character) who’d POPed in to visit Silbury.
