Gleeking Out

To be clear, I use a very simple procedure for writing Candles & Curses.  Specifically, I write whatever is at the forefront of my mind when I sit down.  Sometimes this is “I really should keep my mouth shut today,” and sometimes this means what I think I’m going to write shifts (sometimes dramatically) one or more times before I actually get to sit down.

Today is one of the latter cases.

Over a late lunch it was mentioned to me that someone I know had been playing around with a “Mayan horoscope website” where you enter your birthdate and it gives you a rather cryptic “horoscope.”  Honestly, I wasn’t terribly impressed at first, but I’ll admit it’s probably better for repeat business than giving everyone the same message of “You will die in 2012.”  As my eyes were glazing over from being told that my birthdate brought up the horoscope of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (or something like that), things got interesting as I was informed that the website also allowed you to input two people’s birth dates to determine the kind of energy they would generate as a couple, and that together we made (and this part I am not making up):

Blue Electric Monkey.

And since nothing else I was considering talking about at this moment in time was nearly as funny (or weird) as that, today’s entry was born.  (Bonus points if you get the pun in the title.)
