Blogger won’t update Craig Ferguson post due to fear of crock puppets

If you’ve watched a recent episode of CBS’ The Late Late Show with zany Craig Ferguson, you know Craig is proudly broadcasting now in hi-def which has alarmingly necessitated a longer crockodile puppet reaching up to Mr. Ferguson’s elbow.

He says it looks as if he’s been eaten by the crock – from the other end. And he may be correct, for with HD TV we must be aware of all minute details and how they come across to a hapless at-home audience.

Even middle-of-the-night TV viewers must have their sensitivities respected, one supposes, and Craig is nothing if not sensitive to our delicate sensibilities. Must be because he’s European.

Well, a post on this blog concerning Mr. Ferguson’s natal chart and an entry addressing his and Megan’s Wedding Day Astrology Report have been quite well-viewed, thanks…Craig’s a popular guy.

So yes, an update to either or both of them is in order – to his natal details, in particular, since I didn’t get too in-depth after his nibs stated on air that he doesn’t believe in Astrology. Or that he doesn’t use it, or something like that (it was a while ago, and late – very late.)

Now this is where I point out that Astrology is not a belief system so it’s impossible to ‘believe in’ it. One may believe it works or is a useful tool or language with which to understand the world and our own psyches, but a faith-based system it is not.

Anyway, it is with fear and trembling that I contemplate updating Mr. Ferguson’s natal chart post due to my extreme fear of possibly having one long and one short crockodile puppet sent out to bedevil me, at best only a reluctant astrologer, a blogging gnat, really.

Yet as I continue to watch TV’s Craig Ferguson in the coming weeks, I will try to muster what little courage I have to neutralize this unfortunate dilemma, for Craig’s natal chart is quite interesting – and I assert that his self-revealed visits to a therapist would go even better through the use of Psychological Astrology, if the option is available to him.

After all, no less than Carl Jung used Astrology for diagnosing his patients, you know. Of course, it’s impossible to get an appointment with him these days.

So if Craig gets over his problem with Astrology, perhaps I can get over my problem with crock puppets long enough to suggest that a good star-infested wizardly Merlin the Magician puppet would fill the first 2 minutes of Craig’s show mighty sassily.

And those ‘two new light bulbs’ on The Late Late Show set would pick up a puppet wizard’s hat just right (hi-def or no) to add more mystery, sparkle, and oomph to Craig’s comedy magic.

And in case you didn’t know: Mr. Ferguson is the King of Late Night Comedy so click the above link to view a few videos of a master in action! (Complimentary puppetry included.)


Was ‘the cat’ in Kiss, not the Sex Pistols?

Guess it’s more properly ‘croc’ puppets. Anyway.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
