The Lion Becomes Officially Decrepit Today

Today The Lion turns 64, and he is not speaking of ballet turns. He is speaking of Beatleist turns, as noted in their tangentially eponymous song (geometers take note).

In honor of the occasion, The Lion, as near as he can figure it, has chosen to be seriously depressed for some time now. There could, of course, be other reasons (not enough money by far, no girlfriend, a favorite cat dying, inhabiting a depressing little tourist town, not being able to influence world events, not being able to decide what to do when he grows up, and so on and so forth).

In any event, to celebrate today’s occasion The Lion will blog, will spend money he can’t afford, read some philosophy, drink some tea, long for a woman, hope for money, and look forward to a plethora of nicely silly comments and insults from his little band of fans and tormenters out there in the intertubes. And tonight he may just push the electric blanket up to 3!

Onward Feline Soldier!! Yowsah!!
