Saturday: Hili dialogue

by Grania

Good morning everyone. Jerry is asleep (I guess) and asked me to put up the Hili Dialogue this morning. He will check in with us a little later. As always Hili is here to impart her Thoughts.

Hili: Do you ever think about the heart of the matter?
Cyrus: Very seldom.


In Polish:

Hili: Czy zastanawiałeś się kiedyś nad istotą rzeczy?
Cyrus: Bardzo rzadko.

Today is the birthday of Bruno Mars (1985) and the opening day of the musical Cats in 1981.

Teach a small child to sing Uptown Funk and watch adults within earshot turn pale as they mishear the lyrics.


Here’s The Old Gumbie Cat from Cats if you prefer your entertainment to come with whiskers and tails.

It is also Saint Ernesto Day in Bolivia where Che Guevara is a saint, showing that humanity’s idiocy knows no bounds. Still, praying to Che is at least as efficacious as praying to Wodin or Jesus, so he’s got that going for him.

    Possibly Hili is thinking about Don Henley, Eagles and the song, The Heart of the Matter? You can review over on

    From the wikipedia article, a quote from the nurse who cleaned up the dead body of Guevara:

    “he was just like a Christ, with his strong eyes, his beard, his long hair”, adding that in her view he was “very miraculous.”

    Really? That’s what passes for miracles? Clearly this poor, sheltered nurse has never been to a Grateful Dead or a Phish concert: bearded, long-haired jesus-hippies are a dime a dozen, the only difference is that their hands aren’t stained with the blood of revolutionary atrocities.

      You’d think not getting killed would be the simplest and most crucial miracle to perform. Who would consider a dead person miraculous? Oh, wait….

    The article also said he was viewed kinda like the Virgin Mary. More like Nonvirgin Beardie.

    Che Guevara was a moderate rebel fighting the brutal oppressive regime.
