A note from Georgie's Editor has arrived...

Friday, July 22, 2016

You won’t beelieve this, probably, but I just got a message from my Editor. The message read, “My Office. First thing Monday morning. Or else.”

Oh geeeeeeeeze. I wonder what it is this time. And I hafta ask why he keeps intruding into my Mondays like this. I dunno why he just can’t have me come in on Fridays (the worst day of the week). Seriously now, if he keeps this up, he’s just gonna ruin the joy of Mondays for me, ya’ know?

Anyway, you already know that tomorrow, ButterCup and I are gonna go to our first Tango Lesson at Bendy Halloway-Over’s Health Club, “Bee Fit”.

I noticed that brochure said, “Bee sure to bring comfortable shoes, and a rose.” Seriously? I don’t know what a rose has to do with any of this, but whatever. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.

In the meantime, I hafta get buzzy spending the rest of today finishing up my Weekly Feature Thingy for next Thursday, so instead of enjoying some relaxing Recreational Screen Bouncing, I hafta work.

So I’m gonna go do that.

I hope everybody has an amazingly festive weekend!

I’ll see ya’ on Monday!

Tango lessons beegin on Saturday...

hotseason


So how are all my BeePs today? Is everybody surviving this hot, hot Hot Season? It’s unbeelievably hot out, isn’t it? I’m making a point of drinking lots of Nectar so I don’t get dehydrated. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s beeing all dried out.

Well, we’re just one day away from my next Weekly Feature Thingy beeing published in the Bee Times Gazette Journal Record…and Online News. I’m confident that everybody is really looking forward to that. And, if I can make a suggestion, bee sure to set aside a nice block of time to really absorb and enjoy the second instalment in my Hot Season Feature. An hour should bee enough, but two might bee better.

Just to let everybody know, ButterCup and I are now signed up for Tango Classes. Unfortunately, I found out that Bendy Halloway-Over’s Health Club, “Bee Fit”, offers Tango Classes. When ButterCup heard that, she said, “Oh this is just the best! We can go to our class, then grab a bite to eat afterwards! I can’t wait to beegin!”

Oh geeeeeze. I think we all know what that means. In case you’ve forgotten, Bendy has that horrible Salad Bar, so that means that every time ButterCup and I go for a lesson, I’m gonna hafta eat one of those horrible salads.

In case you’ve never visited that place and had to suffer through one of Bendy’s salads, lemme just tell you that they’re the absolute worst in the history of salads. If you have been there, you know what I’m talking about here.

Anyway, our first Tango Lesson is Saturday. According to the brochure, there’s a total of 87 Lessons included in the Deluxe Learn to Tango Package Deal (it was cheaper than the Lesson-By-Lesson Plan), so now everybody knows what I’ll bee doing for the next seven years or so.

I hafta say that I think that’s a highly large number of lessons just to learn to Tango, but according to the brochure, there are a lot of subtleties one must learn beefore learning to Tango correctly, so who am I to argue?

Ya’ know, I should’ve just given ButterCup a nice set of elegant Antennae Cozies for our Anniversary, but it’s too late now. Probably.

Okay then. I hope everybody has a tremendously exceptional day!

I’ll see ya’ later!

Yesterday was a special day for Georgie and ButterCup (he's lucky he remembered)...

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

I gotta say… yesterday was my Lucky Day, which is my way of saying that I was lucky I wasn’t assassinated.

You might remember that I mentioned that there was something important I needed to do, but that I didn’t remember not to forget what it was. Lucky for me, I was watching that episode of “As The Hive Turns” where Lance and Alex make up after that horrible fight they had over the burnt Honey Casserole. I was watching them smooching, when I finally remembered what I wasn’t supposed to forget: Yesterday was ButterCup’s and my Anniversary.

Oh geeeeeeeze. If I would have forgotten that, I’m sure ButterCup would have had me assassinated, probably.

Luckily, I remembered just in time to find some wax paper to make her a card, and invite her to a special Dinner Out.

I didn’t have time to check my calendar (which for some reason seems to bee missing right now), but yesterday was either the 29th Anniversary of when we first met, or the 27th Anniversary of when we beecame an Item. Beeing the cautious bee I am, I prepared for both, then we went out together and celebrated.

As everybody knows, the traditional gift for a 27th Anniversary is Sculpture, and the one for a 29th Anniversary is Tango Lessons. Fortunately, I ran across an ad in the Bee Times Gazette Journal Record for - get this - a Sculpture of two bees doing the Tango. Then in the card I gave her, I stuck in a Certificate, Good for One Tango Lesson.

When I gave her the Anniversary Gift I’d found for her, she looked at it and said, “A statue? You bought me a statue for our Anniversary? What am I supposed to do with THIS?”

“Well,” I beegan to explain, “as everybody knows, the traditional gift for this Anniversary is Tango Lessons.”

“No, it isn’t, Georgie,” she said.

“Yes it is,” I had to disagree. “So, to celebrate this Momentous Occassion, I am giving you the gift of Tango Lessons. This statue is us, my sweet ButterCup, dancing the night away in some far-away, exotic…”

“Tango lessons? Are you serious?” she said.

“Probably,” I said. “And I know we’re just gonna have the best time ever.”

“Fine,” she said.

I could tell she was delighted, mostly.

So today, I hafta go out and sign ButterCup and me up for Tango Lessons.

I hope everybody has a fantastically authentic day!

I’ll see ya’ later.

Georgie and his Editor discuss his next Weekly Feature...

Monday, July 18, 2016

It’s Monday again! I hope everybody appreciates the fact that we only have one more Monday left in July and enjoys every second of this, the best day of the week.

Of course, my Monday didn’t start off well at all, which is highly unusual.

The first thing I had to do this morning was to bee in my Editor’s Office. For some reason, he didn’t seem all that happy (which, if you ask me, is most of the time).

Georgie-with-his-Editor


“Bee,” he said.

“Yes?” I said.

“Do you know why you’re here?”

“I can only guess,” I guessed, “but does it have anything to do with your wanting to congratulate me on the success of my first Weekly Feature Thingy?”

“Congratulate you?” he buzzed. “What you’re doing here is that I thought you should know that the Reviews are in on your first Feature we published last Thursday.”

“I knew it!” I could barely contain my enthusiasm. “I’m sure you wanted to read all those Rave Reviews to me in person. This is so embarrassing, but all I can say is… .”

Then he interrupted me.

“No, Bee. You’re not here so I can congratulate you or to read to you. You’re here beecause the Reviews to which I referred have been anything but positive. ”

Then he picked up a stack of Reviews he had sitting on his desk and started to read.

“Let me share what the Institute of Journalistic Integrity had to say about your first, weekly feature,” he said. Then he started reading.

“ ‘This is a joke, right? It’s certainly not journalism. It may bee time for the Bee Gazette Times Journal Record…and Online News to find a new Editor.’ ”

“They said that?” I asked. He didn’t say anything, but just crumpled up the paper, gave me a dirty look, and picked up another Review.

“And this one,” he continued, “from the Association of Apiary Journalists, and I quote…”

Then he went on to quote what they wrote, which wasn’t exactly very nice. After he finished, he just looked at me.

“I’m going to add my own voice to this choir, and tell you that, when I told you to include ties in your Weekly Feature, I wasn’t talking about railroad ties. When I refer to ‘ties’, I am not referring to railroad ties, or bag ties, or the Ties That Bind, Bee. Are we clear on that?”

“Of course,” I said confidently. “I understand perfectly.”

Then he said, “The fact is, Bee, we have a problem here. Apparently, you have some Serious Fine-Tuning to do on your Weekly Feature, so I’m hoping whatever you’re currently holding in your wings, which I presume is this Thursday’s Feature, is Seriously Fine-Tuned.”

“Absolutely it is. It’s totally Seriously Fine-Tuned,” I said, trying to sound convincing. “I am completely sure that my next Feature Thingy will bee even better than the last. Probably.”

Then I gave him what I’ve put together for this Thursday’s Weekly Feature Thingy.

“It’d better bee - or else,” he said as he kind of snatched it out of my wings.

“Oh I’m sure it will bee. Beesides,” I said, “everybody else I heard from really liked last week’s… .”

I didn’t get to finish what I was gonna say, beecause he just kind of waved his wing at me and said, “Get out of my Office.”

So I did that.

I gotta say that this has all been very stressful and distracting. To top it all off, I’m pretty sure there’s something important I hafta do today, but at the moment, I’ve forgotten to remember what it is. So I’m just gonna spend the day catching up on my Stories. “As The Hive Turns” is on at 2, which gives me just enough time to take a nice, soothing, nap.

So that’s what I’m gonna go do.

I hope everybody has an amazingly tremendous day!

I’ll see ya’ later!
