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.

Russell Brand 4 June, 1975

English comedian, writer, and actor, Russell Brand continues to make a jolly spectacle of himself with rare grace, charm, and wit, and I think it’s high time he was mentioned herein.

With my inspiration and astrological nosiness spurred by a rousing interview with Russell Brand on today’s Fresh Air radio programme (I’m turning a little British as I write about Mr. Brand – notice the birthdate in Brit style), here are a few natal details concerning his nibs.

Only child of two parents, Russell Brand (for our purposes now ‘RB’) has accomplished a level of fame in the UK which is perhaps exceeded only by controversial qualities which may at times outshine his brilliant wit and communications talents.

Fired from MTV and ‘resigned’ from the BBC ? That’s quite a resume and he’s only 33. Oh, and he made a little film in 2008 called, ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ – you may have seen him as the rock star boyfriend, a part re-written with him in mind.

Yet! We’ll not despair, for even in America his light now groweth, this self-described ‘S & M Willy Wonka’ with the teased-up hair, ropes of necklaces tucked underneath unbuttoned shirts, and tight leather pants which are major parts of his repertoire, if one may say so.

Born 4 June, 1975, the soon-to-be 34-year-old arrives at Hermes’ Crossroads quite naturally if his natal chart – his…dare I say it? – horoscope…is consulted. You see, Gemini is the sign of the Eternal Youth, the Peter Pan archetype of our modern days.

Rock stars, music producers, and actors often fall into this category and it isn’t easy for many of them to break free and deal with the realities of aging and of ordinary life. Garner enough money, fame, and prestige and you’ll be lead by the hand (Gemini) right into the mirror-tiled bedroom (soon after your 10th botox treatment and your last album-release party) for a romantic rendezvous with the perfect stranger who awaits the prince.

On 4 June, 1975: Grays, Essex was the scene of the bouncing and happy event for although darkness exists within Mr. Brand – and is also to be found in his memoir ‘My Booky Wook’ as he instructively points out in today’s radio interview – his natal Sun in Gemini along with the writer’s planet, Mercury Rx 22Gem24 (using a Sun-to-Midheaven chart at the moment: 12:56:50 pm bst) give him plenty of Pan-ishness in all departments. The trickster element’s elfin charm!

Desire nature = Mars – RB’s is in lusty Aries, 7 degrees from an Arian Jupiter; Venus = what one is attracted to and what one attracts – RB’s is in creative Cancer, sign of nurturing + planet of the anima (the perfection of womanhood within the psyche.)

So by sign only, we may simplistically say that RB desires Aries, and is attracted to and attracts those of the Cancerian persuasion.

Now  although I just did, I don’t like to pry so it’s a good thing Mr. Brand’s birth hour is unknown to me. But the Moon remained in Aries for the 24 hours of his birth day; therefore, let us consider Sun Gem-Moon Aries and see what may be seen about this entertaining genius from Essex.

Sun Gem-Moon Aries is an Air-Fire blend with a freshness and clarity to it. Quick and alert, decisive and versatile, Sun Gem-Moon Ari is passionately impulsive and endlessly curious.

(Instantly one might think of  Mr. Brand’s oft-touted ‘bed-them-all’ approach with the ladies which seems to work well for his libido and for establishing a lotharian legend which naughty Mercury in his Hermes guise can well admire.)

Intense will power combined with strong communication ability makes for a poetic salesperson, a whiz with words, and a vivid speaker whose exuberance may be envied by less nimble types.

Yet feelings are not the strong suit here – feeling  ‘passionately’ about things isn’t the same as being able to empathize. And saying what one thinks isn’t the same as sharing feelings about human emotions. Gemini usually finds emotions ‘too heavy’ so “let us flit to something fun and up-to-the-minute, pleeese, I’m so bored,”  he pouts.

Yet oddly enough, there’s a pugnacious forthrightness here that can make for bitter enemies, yet the Sun Gem-Moon Ari blend of energies is often surprised to find this out even as it’s being shrugged off with a hilarious joke or two and a bye-your-leaves, MTV and BBC.

However, no amount of negative experience dulls the spontaneity, the puppy-with-two-tails quality that gets this blend through life’s challenges and helps immensely when one must talk oneself out of tough corners.

Any career that involves ‘thinking on ones feet’  is perfect for this combo, plus, the ability is supported by his having Jupiter oriental (last planet to rise before the Sun) which favors work situations that require spontaneous actions and quick decisions that ‘pay off’ handsomely, it is hoped.

Comedy, stand-up, acting, and music are good ways of using Jupiter oriental – anything that includes improvisation is excellent for Russell Brand’s varied and impressive talents.

Weaknesses may be:

egotism (in show business? Whaaa?); insensitivity to others’ feelings; partiality; monopolizing conversations (like his pal, TV’s Craig Ferguson, RB doesn’t really need anyone on stage with him – that’s Gemini’s multi-characterizations so it’s not really a negative trait for a performer…Ferguson has Mercury and Venus in Gemini); riding roughshod over others is a temptation (which may play into libido games, of course, along with his ‘Pluto-Chiron = Saturn’  in Cancer…ouch! The oppressive authority figure suppresses the psyche and sense of inner responsibility at an early age. To be recognized as an authority in adulthood is a prime motivation while Gemini still insists on romping about the place tossing confetti.)

Natally speaking, this Air-Fire blend is shared by Bill Moyers and John Constable, the painter mentioned below…

‘Images for Integration: A nimble-footed streetfighter dodges his way to victory over all comers’ (hush! – jc)…’The eternal freshness of a Constable landscape.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Well, Mr. Eternal Freshness certainly plays the Artful Dodger archetype with grand enthusiasm – yet with a past of drug problems and family myths and complexes weighing him down. And frettingly, a Rx Morya (opiates such as morphine) closely opposes natal Sun in Gemini…with Morya near Neptune 10Sag21 Rx.

And you know about Sun-Neptune oppositions…

…early misunderstanding of authority causes a sense of being singled out for discipline (or being so); acting defiantly toward anyone who tries to control and manipulate…obvious obstacles are lost in crowds of imaginary ones…self-doubt, fear of entrapment, running away from reality…yet highly creative and potentially successful later in life once a full awareness of the creative talents is developed.

And yes, that creative if often self-deceptive  Neptunian ‘urge to merge’ can be fatal if one doesn’t escape the lifestyle in time, so I hereby declare that I am most sincerely glad that Russell Brand is with us now to spread his amazingly cheeky comedy all over the land because everyone on the planet can benefit from a good larf now and then!

Call for prosecution of Bush and Cheney

Quick! Before they skulk to parts unknown!

http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2008/11/we-must-push-for-prosecution-of-bush.html

Is it all over but the handcuffs?

Here’s a poll question for you to ponder with answers ranging from ‘For sure’ to ‘Not sure’ and some answers in between…

Actually it may be a question of: got hidey hole – will escape.

Update Nov 11: 53% of the votes are definitely FOR prosecution.

To me this is understandable. But for you?

And another thing: as far as this Friday’s premiere of the new James Bond film, I’m with TV’s Craig Ferguson: what the _ _ _ _ is a ‘Quantum of Solace’?

Paulson and Bernanke Stampede Washington – Continue Raid On The Public Purse Citing Grave
Financial Threats, Officials Ready Massive Rescue

By Binyamin Appelbaum and Lori Montgomery

The Bush administration is urgently preparing a massive intervention to” revive” the US financial system, including a plan to sweep away the unpaid loans that are choking banks and blocking the flow of money to borrowers. – Paulson and Bernanke presented a “chilling” picture of the state of the financial system, according to a participant in the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity.

~
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article20807.htm  #

Did you vote for George Bush? Just wonderin’ since he’d never succeeded at any business venture before 2000 and look at him now – bailed out by US taxpayers again.

Of course, conspiracy theorists think this economic collapse is part of the one-world-government plans that were put in place decades ago. Or centuries ago if you subscribe to the Great Seal’s reverse-with-its-all-seeing-eye theory.

Watching Bush, Cheney, Greenspan, and now Bernanke and Paulson in action, I find it difficult to discount the conspiracy theory that they know what they’re doing and that the economic, governmental, and social net failures of America were on the menu all along.

If so, these social tinkerers think that the chaos they are creating is “worth it” especially since they will never suffer as will we, and that their longed-for New World Order is only possible by destructuring society’s systems to make way for for a new start.

Pluto in Capricorn.

You know I still use Bush’s first Inaugural chart 2001 to represent all of his tenure with its 8th house (debt, credit, insurance, finance, shared resources, death, transformation, etc) full of Pluto and Chiron snugged around the Moon in Sagittarius…the People, crowded by the violent and oppressive corporatism/fascism pair, Pluto/Chiron. Its ‘too close for comfort’ flavor is out in the open now, isn’t it? Too late, the trap is sprung!

So my facetious “thanks” goes out to all who voted for George Bush. Now will you compound the issue and give Bush a vote of “confidence” by voting for John McCain? Pluto may be in Capricorn but we don’t have to hand them our heads on plates. Actually we already did that in 2000 and again in 2004. Yeeks. And we couldn’t even get Bush-Cheney impeached to show our displeasure!

But it’s 2008, and as I always say: a vote for John McCain is like a vote for Karl Rove – and that most definitely includes Sarah Palin, the lure. The Angler has spoken (aka Cheney, who must be quite smitten with Palin.)

So even if Barack Obama moves into the White House, his opponents ‘have ways’ and have shown themselves capable of ANYTHING to keep their grasp on power and their agenda on track.

Another option is that Obama plays the game their way and the American people are still in the soup. Rise up? Laws are in place to tamp us down. They call it ‘martial law’ but by then most people will realize what it really is – if they don’t already. Perhaps we’ll be too cowed and hungry to murmur our disapproval. “A hungry man is not a free man.” I disremember who said it, but it’s all too true.

Woo! After seeing the lovely and hilarious Craig Ferguson in concert last evening, you’d think I’d be in a lilting mood today. But one quick look at this morning’s news and the Craig glow fades all too soon…just a glance at the latest doings of those cheeky monkeys of Washington who are ruining our children’s and grandchildren’s lives puts me back in my political snit of miffdom all over again.

MSM: uh…the sky has fallen…who knew?

The MSM Jumps on the Economic Bandwagon

By Kathy Sanborn

So the US economy is on the brink? Yawn. Tell me something I didn’t know at least two years ago.

Now the mainstream media have been given the green light to announce, bold as you
please, that we are in for some pretty tough times, but Internet news and blog
readers have known about our faltering financial system for a long, long time.
Now, in the mainstream press, it has become popular to state the obvious: the
country is broke.

And astrologers have been telling the news for years, too!

With the massive publishing failure going on at Blogger again today (to which its owners have yet to respond or repair – perhaps they’re busy as bees now) it seems I’m fortunate to have published one entry last evening concerning Lehman Brothers crisis of 1984. Article’s link is in previous post…

This economic crisis falls under the Terror Promoters campaign – kind of a Code Chicken Yellow, would you say?

Well, at least tonight’s the night I’ll see Craig Ferguson and forget my woes for an hour or so…wish YOU, lone reader, could come!

Obama-Biden or McCain-Palin?

In a Freudian typo-slip, the title of this post was about to be ‘Obama-Biden or Palin-McCain?’ but it may not matter much longer according to an excellent post-with-predictions on the outcome of the November presidential election which Nancy has written at Starlight News:

http://starlightnews.com/wordpress/?p=33

McCain’s Palin ‘bump’ may be fading soon, and as many astrologers have observed before: John McCain’s health really IS an issue with transit Saturn opposite natal Saturn (in his 6th house of Health) on the menu.

If That transit doesn’t have health implications for a previous cancer patient of his advanced years, I’ll have to eat my ephemeris, won’t I? And of course, Saturn rules skin, and the August 1 Solar Eclipse is in McCain’s Pre-natal Eclipse Series making this a banner year for him in one way or another.

Eclipses, if they ‘bring’ anything at all, usually bring to light what one least expects so it’s impossible to pre-judge how they will act upon a native, but given McCain’s prominence within the collective, I should expect that “his” Eclipse will manifest noticeably as an event or events.

Then there’s Barack Obama:

One thing about Obama’s campaign that I’ve not had time to delve into as I’d like this week is his recent trip to Iraq and the hay the GOP will be making of it – whether they spin it out of whack or not, apparently Senator Obama ‘had speaks’ about a troop withdrawal date (and postponing it until the new administration comes in), which gives the Rovians lots of ammunition to manipulate into a big political problem for the Democratic candidate – even if he was well-intentioned.

Plus, tonight I’m officially in count down mode because this Friday evening is the Craig Ferguson comedy performance we’ve been pining for and I can hardly wait.

You’ve probably heard by now that Craig was feeling unwell and had to visit his doctor the other day and he’s been diagnosed with…..election fever!

Oh, and Happy 221st birthday to the US Constitution today! You’re a little gray around the muzzle and under constant attack – in shreds actually – but the majority of we-the-people still love ya!

Wednesday, Sept 17 was marked by a ceremony at Montpelier, home of the Architect of the Constitution (and the Bill of Rights), President James Madison, because the renovations have been completed returning Montpelier to its original state and size.

The du Pont family’s wings have been removed reducing the house’s size from 36,000 square feet to 12,261 square feet. ‘Madison’s Temple’ is still on the premises, of course.

In attendance were Jim Lehrer and Chief Justice John Roberts, some muckety-muck politicians, along with Madison’s descendants, and descendants of the slaves he kept. With Madison elected president in 1809, the plantation has been restored to the time period 1809 – 1836, the year of his death.

And speaking of Founding Fathers, Tuesday I posted a bit on John Adams’ natal chart with a very interesting quote from the man himself – a quote which the current gaggle of Washington politicians, world bankers, and court justices could apply to themselves any time they see fit and the whole world would be much better off if the ‘power elitists’ would take a good look at themselves in John Adams’ mirror:

Craig Ferguson tickets procured!

Now here’s a coup I can believe in!

It’s confirmed: TV’s Craig Ferguson is coming to a town nearby and tickets have been purchased!!

Suave European Mr. Ferguson may now join George Carlin as one of the very few comedians I’ve seen in concert.

They’re much alike really – one is known for spouting out-of-the-mainstream foul-mouthed yet witty truisms – and the other one is George Carlin.

TV’s Craig Ferguson comedy clips link

A couple of routines by TV’s Craig Ferguson may be viewed uproariously here:

http://www.cbs.com/latenight/latelate/

From his invisible sidekick Davis to his I KNOW~W~W! cry of the true Aquarian (who Knows), you can’t do better for your funnybone after midnight than to watch Craig Ferguson’s cheeky monkeys and other guests…although I must say he’s neglecting to use animal sound effects of late. Yes, The Late Late Show has been honored by his imaginative company of cats, kittens, dogs, monkeys, gorillas, lemurs and other furry friends.

Last evening I celebrated Madagascar Day with Craig. Hope you didn’t miss it!

The comedy smorgasbord of TV’s Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show (one too many Lates for my schedule, but sometimes only Craig will do) is for those still in withdrawal from lack of Monthy Python.

After all, one can only watch A Fish Called Wanda so many times before it becomes like white noise–which sadly goes double for The Holy Grail and The Life of Brian, one of the most underrated films of the genre since Neptune was discovered in 1846 and photography began. Could Hollywood be far behind?

Well, no. It wasn’t.

Objects Are Closer Than They Appear (warning: this post will now vere into ultimate regions, so be wary unless you’re very sure of yourself):

You know it won’t do to forget to consider asap your ultimate and true condition before our Creator who cares where each of us spends eternity. Now THAT’s the sort of fearmongering that might actually do you, and the world, some good. And happily this well-meant heads-up is of the longlasting kind, not a flash in the proverbial pan being marketed to us 24/7.

Pan…glad you wondered about where the little dickens is at this very moment…hold on a few while I go check him out in my Solar Fire software…this post will be published and I’ll endeavor to return to update with details of Pan’s current flutey location. You know he’s one of the oldest archetypal figures in any culture. You could say his myth or tale is older than the hills and you’d probably be right!

One of the trickster figures in an astrology chart (aka horoscope; map; roadmap; hologram; mandala; birth chart), Pan emcompasses the concept of the trickster element or “artful dodger,” an archetype which is strong in my own chart with Mercury as ASC and MC ruler, planets in Capricorn (the sign associated closely with Pan since Cap is the Mer-Goat, the joining of Earth and Water, the oldest elements creating the Potter’s clay of Genesis. Natally my Capr Jupiter is linked with the Fixed Star, Sualocin, another of the tricksters! This Star also relates to the playful dolphin. Perhaps he’s a bit like the playful yet invisible sidekick, Davis, for Ferguson the conedian is quite the Mercurial change artist within his skit comedy, a veritable Prometheus, it seems.

Whew! this post wandered off the path with the astrology and Scriptural stuff….or did it?

~~:~~

Back Down to Earth Please But With a Twist of Neptunian Dreaminess:

Finally! I’ve decided on who will be the CelebChart Queen (a featured CelebChart written upon by this reluctant astrologer) but life gets busy in summery hot Georgia, so Ms _____ will have to wait until perhaps tomorrow…day of the Sun, first day of the week. Btw: here at WordPress something stunned me yesterday. I don’t know why I had not noticed before but the Calendar in my sidebar here on Jude’s Threshold has Moon-Day MONday as if it’s the first day of the week.

Puh! Moon starts week ahead of Sunday’s Sun? East over West?  Hmm…m..m.m….the poles are in process of shifting, ’tis true, but isn’t this a bit of an obvious morph of import for WordPress to pass on to an unsuspecting astrologer-artist who only blogs for the fun of it?

Is this crazy calendar switch a young person’s interweb (thanks, Craig!) thingy? Is it a new ‘look’ for WordPress, or have I in the past assumed too much about this blog’s format? Or…is someone attempting to master time?

All I’m sayin’ is that it’s curious, that’s all. Just plain Curious with a capital C. Which is redundant if you capitalize the C…oops I did it again…as Craig says, I don’t have time to be muckin’ about here…soooo….

What Did We Learn on the Show Tonight, Craig? (meow)

Have We Got Time For An Email?

Well, combining the two, we learned that I have an email question for TV’s Craig Ferguson but will post it here since he’d never get it anyway…

Hi Craig,

After watching your show, an endless loop of your theme song plays round and round my brain.

Can you suggest an effective headache remedy without aspirin?

Just Kidding (or am I?),

Jude

Athens, Ga

ps: that’s You singing, isn’t it? Thought so.

Update 3:45 pm edt: current location of Pan 5Gem13 direct, less than 3 degrees from MIDAS 8Gem06 direct…Gemini’s trickster qualities along with its often termed ‘duplicity’ is hosting both asteroids with hoarding MIDAS being money and gold, and Pan helping to infuse markets and financial systems with more fraudulent tricks than most people imagine. These two are not the whole story but they sure are livin’ large and kickin’ butt!

an astrologer has Celeb Chart crisis!

Yes, I’ve been trying to zero in on the identity of a new celebrity candidate for Natal Chart investigation here at Jude’s Threshold  but can’t seem to decide who shall be put squirming under Astrology’s microscope, or telescope, as the case may be.

There’s something about reading details of a celebrity’s Natal Chart and I don’t mind telling you that using horoscopes of famous people is a good way to study Astrology because larger-than-life persons and grand events may be large-scale enough that their start times are duly noted in private, and perhaps in public news sources, etc.

So if I plan to post on two celebrities, one lady, one gentleman, then who should it be?

My list of nominees includes: John Cusack, Alec Baldwin, Jon Stewart, Alex O’Loughlin, David Letterman…..Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Nora Jones, Jodie Foster…you see what I’m up against….how to decide?

Now this won’t work for me unless I have some interest in the King or Queen’s chart; still, If you have an idea for nominees please leave a message here with your original suggestion (or a name or two from my nominee list) for King Celeb Chart and Queen Celeb Chart–if only because it’s been a while since I posted on the Natal Charts of TV’s Craig Ferguson and chanteuse-in-denial Amy Winehouse.

I wish Craig could help Amy…I wish somebody could.

Craig Ferguson May 17, 1962

natal chart Ferguson

TV’s Craig Ferguson, May 17, 1962, Glasgow Scotland; pictured: natal chart = Sun to Midheaven = ‘fame and prominence’ with Sun 26Tau07, Moon 1Sco48 (which means Moon could be in the last degrees of Libra and conj asteroids, Toro and Minerva if Sunrise (Solar/creative/ego recognition) chart is used.

Click to enlarge image and you’ll be crestfallen to see that I’ve scribbled some notes–hopefully not too many to be readable–upon the chart. Some things will be discussed later in an Update to this post, if all goes as planned.

So! if you watch CBS’ The Late Late Show with TV’s Craig Ferguson as do I, you’ve heard his oft-repeated “I KNOW-W-w-ww!” which sounds like a bit of Sag to me (with a lot of Aquarius) yet natal Mercury (communication; thinking; language ability) is placed in Gemini who also wants to Know and broadcast it (Sag is more nearly, The Seeker who Believes), and nearby is creative Venus 23Gem14. 

Plus, there’s a personal name asteroid, FERGUSON, in the 19 Gemini area of the zodiac…I KNOW-W-w-www!

Mercury/Venus when entwined create lovely and skilled writings, as does ‘our Craig.’ Perhaps writing and story-telling talents have been passed down in the Ferguson clan, ya think?

Moon approaching Neptune (of negative escapsim fame) reminds me of Amy Winehouse’s natal chart (you’ll see it around here somewhere.) Scars of past emotional deprivations run deep within us all, but some astrological significators are more problematic and difficult to manage well. Glad to say, Craig gave up self-defeating alcohol use years ago and now has Success at his beck and call!

I say ‘our Craig’ because Mr. Ferguson is now an American citizen but retains his Scottish citizenship as well. Colossos!

Wishing my favorite TV host-comedian a good show tonight as he hosts the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as bullishly transiting Toro culminates in Washington DC at 8 pm…Ole!

Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Dick, George, and so many more–the in-cahoots, the outta-the-loops, and the whoop-de-whoops will be perching their imminent balasts upon dinner chairs, crisp napkins underchin and really really wanting to like Craig Ferguson and to get one ot two of his jokes. Not to fret–Craig has pretty much promised to take it easy on ’em, but I hope he won’t. 

Or here’s an idea: he could host the soiree dressed in his masterful impersonation of Prince Charles.

He’d be reasonably safe–they wouldn’t dare jail him now, he’s too visible and freshly recruited and all.

And yet…

…no matter how easy Craig makes being hilarious look, Mr. Suave European will be in attendance, too. Although adept with funny accents, TV’s Craig Ferguson will have his mits full tonight trying to keep Mr. Bush from perpetrating his own (groanworthy) comedy routine upon the audience.

Yep, George fancies himself as a comedian but this may be where Letterman’s regular feature, Great Moments in Presidential Speeches, should be used instead of any monologue from W, for Letterman (Ferguson’s boss) always shows Bush babbling to disadvantage…and well-deserved. imo.

Uncomfortable for Craig tonight? Nah! He’s European.

Besides, wouldn’t That be a cushy job finding video of Bush flubbing the English language with bored people slouching in the rows behind him? Are they wondering if the lowballed $30 payment was worth becoming ensnared beyond belief within one man’s world of maniacal make-believe? As we know, it’s three hours they’ll never get back.

And Who Else is Coming to Dinner Tonight in Washington?

Cheeky monkeys so-o-ooo cheeky…they think they’re news reporters!

(cred: basically, from TV’s Craig Ferguson with a bit of Mike Myers tossed into the cheeky monkey cage. But I thank Craig for teaching me that it’s called the ‘interweb.’)

Break a leg, Craig!

UPDATE Sep 3 2008: now that our tickets have been procured for seeing Mr. Ferguson in concert in a couple of weeks, I’ll add the Images for Integration for the Sun Tau/Moon Scorpio personality blend – and three are quite dramatic!

“The Mating Season…Persephone and Pluto…’The Phantom of the Opera…Dennis Potter’s ‘The Singing Detective” (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzy Harvey.

If you’ve never seen the charismatic and multi-talented Craig’s impersonation of Jessica Fletcher ( Angela Lansbury’s detective character in ‘Murder She Wrote’) saying, “Has there been a muhrrrduh?” well, I don’t know what to say for you except you’re missing out!

Mating? No comment on the drama of divorces although his Pre-Natal Eclipse is in the 18 South Series: ‘separations, endings, and partings but leading to positive outcomes.’ (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’.) 

This Eclipse Series last occurred in Feb 1998 and I’m snoopy enough to attempt to find dates/s of Mr. Ferguson’s break-ups or divorces. Suffice it to say, positive outcomes seem now to be on his menu,  and I’m glad!

UPDATE Jan 7, 2009: on tonight’s show Craig announces his wedding last week to Megan (Cunningham, I assume since they’d been dating) at her family’s farm in Vermont.

During his opening monlogue, Craig showed a lovely photo of the two lovebirds, he in his sexy kilt, Megan in her elegant wedding gown – standing in several inches of snow.

He said there was a blizzard and the weather was so bad they had to cancel the reception – now that’s bad weather – especially in Vermont.

Sending out Happy Congratulations and Best Wishes to Craig and Megan Ferguson!

However,  if I find the actual date of their wedding, I’ll post a Wedding Day Astrology article for them on this blog because that’s just the way inquiring astrologers roll…rather a nosy bunch, aren’t we?

After all, a horoscope chart has four main points to it  and they correspond to the four questions: What? (Ascendant); Where? (Descendant); How? (Ic); and WHY? (Mc) which reminds me of journalism’s article-writing rules of old.

Well, I’ll close now with the hope that Craig continues to appreciate  having the GPS he says is embedded in his wedding ring. Hilarious, yes, but that’s a pretty good idea for wandering spouses if I ever heard one.

And yet I’m sure ‘the third one will be the charm’ for the Scottish-American charmer!

“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…
