the true ruler


“Oh, I’m sorry,” she might have smirked at me, “was this your speaker?”

That possibility was remote, though, as she would never consider that anything belonged to anyone but her.  Nor was she likely to ever even acknowledge my presence. Notice how she pointedly looked away from me as I took her picture.

You didn’t actually think a Jester ruled the Matticus Kingdom, did you?  Despite a certain Little Prince’s best efforts, his sudden rise to power and our quick transition into a toddlerocracy, Belle has always been the true ruler.

That’s just the way it is around here.

Then again, based on all the cat videos on the internet, perhaps it is normal to be ruled by a cat?













Poop physics have not yet been fully studied.  Who can say for sure how it got on the socks.

Oh yes, we will remember for a long time how very far from home we were for the great poop explosion of December 07, 2013…

Be My Guest: Matticus Kingdom

Arden put out a call for guest bloggers to keep her piece of the blogosphere company while she tackled NaNoWriMo. I was compelled to send in a post (or two). The kitties made me do it! Not sure what I’m talking about? You better go check it out! And make sure you spend some time catching up on all the other awesomesauce that Arden has going on over at Musings of a Dancing Wino.

and so we venture out again

Hey all!

The Queen, the Little Prince and I (the Jester of this here kingdom) will be traveling again for a few days. I’ve got some posts scheduled and will do my very best to reply to comments and read your posts, updates, poems, stories, bits of silliness, cat memes, weirdness, etc… But, if for some reason I don’t immediately reply to a comment, or I’m not actively commenting on a post you know I’d normally be all over, don’t worry, it probably just means I’m a plane. Again. With my almost 7 month old.  Again.

Yes, that’s right. The Little Prince hasn’t even been alive for 7 months and he will be getting on his fifth plane… Shortly after turning 7 months old he will be getting on his sixth plane. Yes, the Queen and I are crazy. We know. We haven’t had time to seek professional help yet though because, well, probably because we’ve spent too much time traveling. Don’t worry. We only have eleventy-billion more things to do before the end of the year. And then maybe things will start to calm down for us.

Why are you all laughing?

Seriously, knock it off or I’ll send Revis after you!

Not entirely sure what a Rogue Ninja Zombie Killing Knight of the Matticus Kingdom is capable of?  You don’t want to know.  Trust me.

Why are you all still laughing?

Sheesh, can’t get no respect.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful couple days, and I’m sure I’ll be chatting, liking, sparring, with all of you shortly!

In the meantime, here’s this:

6 hours of me on a plane? Awesomesauce! | Success Kid



And who are we to argue with that kind of wisdom?!!

Instead of “shameless” I could have also called this post “silliness!”

I’m sorry I haven’t been around the kingdom much lately.  Hopefully you’ve been enjoying the guest posts, western novel updates, and the Friday Q and A madness.  The Jester’s triumphant return isn’t too far away.
