Bela: Thomas and Lisa went to the Metropolitan Opera last night to see Aida.
Harry: Aida is an opera by Verdi.
Bela: He was cool.
Harry: And Italian.
Bela: There were no monsters or mice in Aida, but there were horses.
Harry: Horses are cool.
Bela: Aida is set in ancient Egypt.
Harry: The sets are cool.
Bela: They have cat statues.
Harry: So anyway, Aida is a slave girl and she is in love with a great warrior named Radames. But the mean princess who is the daughter of the pharoah is in love with Radames.
Bela: And Aida is the servant of the mean bitch princess.
Harry: She had a good voice though.
Bela: I agree.
Harry: Then Radames won a big battle against the Ethiopians and captured Aida's father and she was all freaked out.
Bela: Everyone was all freaked out for the whole four hours of the opera. That's what people do in operas. They freak out.
Harry: Very true.
Bela: Then the pharoah told Radames he could marry the princess and he said okay, but also he wanted to marry Aida and then Aida and Radames made a plan to run away together, but the mean bitch princess found out, and also Aida and her father got away, but Radames got caught and the high priests said he was a traitor and then they put him in a tomb under the temple and then it turned out that Aida was in there too, since she wanted to die with him, since that's what people do in operas.
Harry: People are stupid.
Bela: I agree.
Harry: And then they all die.
Bela: Coming tomorrow: more scary monster stories.
Harry: Fuck the opera.
Bela: I want to hear more about the monkey men.

Dick Cheney Sightings
"Charles Wetzel was driving home in Riverside, California, on Saturday night, November 8, 1958, and as he neared the point where North Main Street crosses the Santa Ana River something leapt in front of his car. 'It had a round, scarecrowish head,' he said, 'like something out of Halloween. It wasn't human. It had a longer arm than anything I'd ever seen. When it saw me in the car it reached all the way back to the windshield and began clawing me. It didn't have any ears. The face was all round. The eyes were shining like something fluorescent, and it had a protuberant mouth.'"
Coming tomorrow: Cannibalism in the early colonies and Benjamin Franklin electrocutes a turkey. Dig it.

Hey Hat Machines,
Here is a hat update. There are 33 completed hats and 34 hats on order and probably another ten will be reserved for government officials which means there are about 23 hats unassigned.

Good morning Blogsters. Lisa of Lisablog here. Harry and Bela are asleep so I'm checking in today. This is going out to everyone in the tri-state area where it's rainy and most people have wicked colds. Stick with the chicken soup-- it works. And don't listen to any reports about flying bird-men over Brooklyn.
Hat Update: Laynie's rose colored hat is done and Janet's field theory hat is in progress, and Jake's California chupacabra is in progress too.
The Thomas and Lisa Report: We are quite happy, thank you, and we would like to encourage everyone to fight the power. Please remember to sign onto the Heritage Foundation's Conservative Job Bank and to make some random phone calls to 1-800-800-life to tell dirty jokes to the people at Life Dynamics KKK Pro-Life City.
Monster Update: From Reuters, June 12, 1969, Rangoon, Burma:
"Two giant 'monkey men' recently sighted roaming the jungles along the Mekong River near the Thai-Burma-Laos border have been terrifying local villagers. According to press reports, the two creatures are said to be about ten feet tall."
Coming Up Next: The Monkey Men of North America, more on the 100 hats project, and what you can expect from Lisablog in the New Year.

Harry and Bela's Guide to Mysterious Creatures
Bela: Today's special topic is monsters.
Harry: We are all for monsters.
Bela: Here are some insights from A Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings.
Harry: First off, bird-men. Bird-men are my favorite.
Bela: A bird man was seen over Brooklyn in 1877.
Harry: And check this out: "Three years later a 'marvelous apparition' appeared over Coney Island....'Many reputable persons' saw it, according to the New York Times (September 12, 1880), 'and they all agree that it was a man engaged in flying toward New Jersey'".
Bela: Go Bird Man!
Harry: Check in tomorrow for stories about monkey men.
Bela: And also a hat update.

Macro and Micro
And Now, a message from Lisablog correspondents Harry and Bela:
Bela: Greetings Earthlings. Two days ago I received a microchip. I am now a fully computerized happening cat. This microchip will allow me to join the European Union of cats, if I want to.
Harry: Meanwhile, I now weight 12.125 pounds. Please congratulate me on my new slim look.
Bela: Congratulations Harry. I meanwhile gained one pound. Harry and I are now in the same weight class.
Harry: Also, Lisa's friend Elena gave us this cool website info re: macrobiotic eating schemes: Macro Eating and she also mentioned the book, The Macrobiotic Way by Michio Kushi.
Bela: The other news is that Lisa's friends from the North Country are visiting today. Let's here it for Mark and Lisa. They brought toys.
Harry: And look forward to more news from the cat kingdom over the next ten days. Lisa is going on another secret mission with Thomas. Heads up Thomas: You better bring us toys.
Bela: Everyone better bring us toys. And we will have a hat update for you and more gnostic treasures.
Harry: Stay cool people.
Harry: And down with Dick Cheney.
Bela: And that bitch lady Condi Rice.

Are there any Fallujah correspondents out there?
This just in from Lisablog correspondent Whit:
"A boy I know, Sean (aged 20) joined the Marine
reserves right out of high school; he wanted to go to college but didn't have the money. He was told he could do weekend duty (play in the mud with phoney bullets). He is now in Fallujah and we have no way of finding out his situation."
The good people at Lisablog are trying to get in touch with the good people of the Marines in and around Fallujah. Are there any active service people bloggers out there? We need to establish contact with you! If you are in Iraq, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first Lisablog correspondent to establish contact with an Iraqi or an American in Iraq gets a Mubarak hat from the 100 hats project.
