Moonalice poster by Carolyn Ferris
According to Moonalice legend, Fairfax was home to the summer palace of Queen of Hearts Moonalice. As you can see on tonight’s poster, Queen of Hearts lived on the highest hillside in Fairfax with a view of the water. Close inspection of the poster suggests that the bay view may be a figment of someone’s imagination. Is there a bay view in Fairfax? Nobody knows. In which case, the view must be the product of one pill. If not one pill, then different one pill.
According to Moonalice legend, Queen of Hearts Moonalice had several employees at her palace in Fairfax. Our favorites were Tweedledum Moonalice and his twin sister, Tweedledee. Tweedledum and Tweedledee were Thai-stick twins. Unlike Siamese twins, Thai-stick twins are not physically connected. Their connection is spiritual. Each needs the other for a complete life. In this case, Tweedledum inhaled and Tweedledee exhaled. This relationship was blatantly unfair to Tweedledee, as her brother got most of the buzz. But Tweedledee got back at Tweedledum by power booting all over him the first time they tried peyote buttons.
According to Moonalice legend, March is National Noodle Month. This is the time of year when all in the Moonalice tribe give thanks to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. We thank him or her for keeping us all firmly attached to the ground. We thank him for his tasty meatballs and noodley goodness. And we thank him for the fantastic hemp products that make us crave a meal of spaghetti and meatballs. RAmen.
According to Moonalice legend, as of midnight it is now March 14. This is significant to the tribe for two reasons. For one thing, it is the shortest day of the year. Booo! At 2am, we all leap forward an hour. But March 14 is also Pi Day: 3.14. And in two hours – at 1:59 am – it will be the Pi minute. That is precisely the minute before we leap forward. Coincidence? We think not! As is our custom, we will now celebrate Pi Day in the traditional Moonalice way, with apple pie.
