A brief hiatus

The Flea is on a scientific retreat for Mars observation tomorrow and Friday. Strange to relate, my Venus is in Ares.

When I excitedly said to my friends, "Have you seen Mars lately?" they looked at me as if I had a tile off. And when I explained that the next time we'll see Mars as close to the Earth as this, David Beckham will be dead and we'll all have barcodes stamped on our foreheads, nobody was remotely interested. Morons.

Tell them Venus is rising in Aries and everyone's going to get laid and they're all agog. But mention that they only have to glance out of the window after 10 o'clock and they'll be able to see Mars, big, red and mysterious, and it's a prelude to insanity.
