And zen there were two

Two days until the next Chronicles and a visit from The Monkess of http://www.dailyzen.com/ . I am more excited about this than I became when the Vatican accidentally shot white smoke out of the chimney before the Pope died. In fact, the Pope wasn’t even sick at the time, though he had a sinus infection.

The Monkess buzz is already spreading. Not many people have heard The Monkess speak and most of them are wondering why she uses a capital T in the The part of her name. No less, what is a monkess? Is it just a feminine monk? Are there more than one? Is monki the plural, then?

And of course, there is zen, in upper-lower or all-lower case. Either way, you got yourself one heck of an idea there. It is no surprise that zen and the word “now” have only three letters. Think on that for a while and put the drier on “spin.” Zen is defined, for one, as the “school of Mahayana Buddhism asserting that enlightenment can come through meditation and intuition rather than faith.” And remember, Zen is also a street name for lysergic acid diethylamide (in the sky with diamonds).

Oh yeah, T-giving dinner should provide the traditional turkey or else you will be mocked by people—usually white people who are god-fearing and who have relatives that wear hoods and travel in groups through the night. Want to really shake up the white world? Have chicken. Or a few little hens. Or a duck. Or a goose. Or, better yet, roadkill. It don’t matter what you eat while you give thanks.

I was wondering how my neighbour could save a fortune on her credit cards. Now I too have the secret.
