This is not an original ranting but I am pissed and I am going to do it anyway!!

There she was driving down Topanga Blvd in the fog. The traffic was crazy heavy and car lights were on. I watched as she looked up every few seconds and looked down for more than a few seconds. On general she was spending more time looking down then up; while driving in the fog in crazy heavy traffic.  I thought about all the times, when driving, that if I had not been looking up, a mere second, I might have had a major accident. Driving in the fog in Californian is a fucking rare thing…. I mean as rare as roast beef with red juices flowing!!

 I was digging her V.W. Bug too… it was purple and her long dark hair was trimmed at the end with the same color as her car. How cool is that!? I want a black V.W. Bug with purple anarchy flowers and two green praying mantises, and I will do my hair black, purple and green. One thing I will never do is text and drive. It is the most stupid thing I see people doing these days. It pisses me off. Not only is she risking her life, and the life of everyone around her; including cats, dogs, possums, raccoons, goats and little children with balls, that awesome V.W. of hers will be smashed up. I honked at her. She looked over and I said, “Don’t text and drive honey! “What?” She said smiling. “I said don’t text and drive,” as I took my finger and rolled it around my ear…the crazy sign. I think she got the picture ’cause she reacted with a roll-eye and a little jerk. Maybe I woke her up for a bright brief second as she cruised; texting and looking downwards in a horse powered machine weighing some 1900lbs . I fucking hope so!!

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
