Zen and the art of....

note from krix-"Julie! has taken over the blog this morning in order to do something extra special for Zen on her birthday. Y'all are welcome to follow along but please don't spoil the suprise!"

Hi sweet Zenny!!!!!

Because this is a special day for you, we have decided to throw you a global
And to make it *extra* festive, I've written a fairy-tale especially for
you! :-)
You are the main character in it, and bits of it have been posted on every
site that has a "Keanu-blog-posse" *blinkie*.

After you've finished reading the text here, all you need to do is click on
the link at the end to go to the next part! However, because of the different
time-zones, and because not everyone will have the opportunity to make an
entry out of it, you should not *panic* if you enter their blog, and see
nothing referring to this. You will find the next bit of the story in the
most recent comment-section. Should the link, for whatever reason, not work,
then just look at the address & type it in yourself - you lazy bum ;-)

As an extra note for people who might also read this, and aren't called Zen:
Please be aware that this fairytale is being monitored by the Canadian
tourist-board, so it may contains references and subliminal messages in
order to get you to book a holiday there & spend all your money on furry
little hats and grizzly bear t-shirts. It may also contain references to
Keanu Reeves. --but I'm sure you all don't mind ;-)

Ok, are you ready sweety? Then we proudly present:

An Original Tale by Julie!

Krix as Frixo; The bearer of the ‘thing’
Catz as Catzdalf; the old dude with the powerful *blinkie* spells
CuteTexasblonde as Arablonde; The lost king of middle-skirt
Keana as Intheboxomir; the heroic dude who redeems himself.
BakedNudel as Legonudles; the Elf-prince with disturbingly cute pointy ears
Sta-cie as Sam-ie; the trusty side-kick Blobbit
Keanu-Soul as; Merry-soul, the cheerful young Blobbit
Keanuette as Pippinette; the nosy, yet adorable Blobbit
And lastly Julie! as Gimlie!; the horribly ugly little dwarf, who can be
found deep beneath the surface of the earth, aka in the comments-sections

Special appearances will be made by:.
Joel Silver as ‘Jollum-Smeailver’; the one who keeps on saying ‘My precious’
when looking at his bank-account.
The academy awards-jury as Oscauron; the little statue who thinks he rules
the world
And certain movie-critics as Shutupman; the pathetic magician with

*croaky voice*

Once upon a time... A terrible blizzard hit Canada. As the wolves howled in the background, and people huddled together in their romantic wooden cabins, admiring the glorious view of frozen lakes and salmon-filled rivers through a curtain of dwindling snowflakes, they could not help but notice how blessed they were to live in a country so magnificent as theirs. Not only did they have fresh air, a friendly population, lots of yummie sea-food and were easily reachable by areo-plane (check your local tourist-office for bookings) they were also the ONLY country in the world that could officially claim that one of their citizens was in fact, Keanu Reeves.

This caused much joy in the daily lives of the common people.

However, they did not know 'yet', that their country was about to be graced by an even more unique presence. And that the ice-cold snowstorm itself was a sign from above that great things were about to happen.

Because one of the snowflakes in this magical blizzard contained...

Happy Birthday Zen!!!
If this can't defrost you, NOTHING will!

This is such a brilliant idea! Thanks Julie and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZEN BABY!!

Posted by: Keanuette on February 6, 2004 10:27 AM

My GOD! That string of posting took 10 years of my life! Some sections didn't allow such long texts, so I had to re-write during the posting-process, and Keanusoul seems to have vanished, too. I dropped her lines at nudels. And some of the links didn't work, so she will have to type them in.

Oh & on an extra note: If you have a blog also, but weren't included: Please don't feel snubbed! I love you all! For logistical reasons ONLY, I limited the bits to the string to blinkie-blogs.

*Sighs exhausted*

Now all we have to do is wait untill she stumbles upon it! :-D

Bonne anniversaire, many happy returns, Zen!

Velen innig merci, Julie! and also thanks to all members of the blogposse, it was great fun doing this virtual paper-chase!

PS to ZEN: Did you send Julie! a year's supply of Canadian MLS or what???

Posted by: Niobe on February 6, 2004 10:48 AM

Julie! You are one amazing KBP groupie! We luv ya!! Thanx for adding how youthful I look for my old age ROTFLMAO This was a fantastic idea!!
Happy bithday Zen! We luv ya girl!

Posted by: Catz on February 6, 2004 11:40 AM

Yeah, it's terrific! Julie! is a genius, and Zenny is completely deserving! I'm just not sure that I got to the end myself...

happy, happy birthday dearest Zen!

and mucho thanks to Julie! for a job well done!

*big hugs to all*

i'm not in the fellowship as such, but you gotta love the whole "blobbit" theme... way cool!

Posted by: lori on February 6, 2004 01:14 PM

Too cute for words. :) Happy Birfday, Zen!

Posted by: Mikey2 on February 6, 2004 01:24 PM

Ow, thank you all in return :-D
And yes, Zen deserves *extra* attention! :-)

Nudel, the end isn't correct because Netty is still staring at the 'thing', LOL!
The wrong link is posted beneath her 'bit', it should be http://keanuvision.com/thing.html

Instead of just 'keanuvision'. I tried to tell her that, but all she did was leave a comment saying: 'I like the thing...'
She hasn't changed the link yet, so I'm affraid that we'll have to embark on another adventure to rescue someone soon, LOL!

PS; Lori, you're in it too :-)
You're one of the comments-elves, called: 'TherearetoomanytonameseperatelybuttheyallROCK'!

*wearing a stunning, dangerously low-cut, Badgley Mishka original, walks towards the stage, shakes hands, kisses cheeks, waves to the fans*

*clears throat* *smiles shyly* Thank you. Thank you. *Waits for cheers to stop* This is so unexpected. *hand to throat* Who would have thought in July 2003 when I left my first comment here that it would all lead to this.

*voice shakes* I have made the most wonderful friends. The work that was put into this, I can't even begin to tell you how much it means to me. Julie!, my sweet, sweet European allie. You have always believed in me. You send me chocolates in shape of letters spelling my name. You send me horrible tasting Dutch gin. I haven't tasted it yet because the bottle is too pretty to open, but I'm taking your word that it's horrible. And you send me the most entertaining emails any girl could wish for. But this! *chokes up* This goes above and beyond all of that. Well, except maybe the chocolate. To be the star of your movie, knowing that you wrote the part with me in mind, that means more to me than you will ever know and I will be forever grateful. I love you dearly my sweet and will remember your dedication and hard work always. You are my hero. I love you sweetheart! *hands to heart*

*music director tries to direct band to start playing*

Put it down stickman! Don't make me sic the Keanu-Blog-Posse on you! *stickman retreats fearfully*

*tiny feminine cough* I wish to thank the wonderful krix for hosting our little work of art and for being the most excellent model to which we all aspire. You are a STAR baby. You made us what we are today!

I HAVE to thank my co-stars without whom I would not be the celebrity I am today. *coy smile*

My dear bakednudel who once rescued me from a Daily-Thud-blank-email-receiving tragedy and who has been a wonderful friend ever since, your State's praline cookies are to die for and your blog, a must read every day. I will be your friend always, your allie to the North, your hockey information dispenser. You rock!

Nettie, sweet, funny delightful Nettie. Your blog is delicious and I look forward to the unique sense of humour that permeates your ever present comments. I lurves you too honey. *mwah*

*glares threateningly at stickman*

Thank you
to Catz, the cool name girl with the even cooler Photoshop skillz, the girl of blink;

to the funny and smart and cute CuteTexasBlond;

to the beautiful Keana from the land that brought us Keanu;

and to my neighbour-in-citizenship, the video-making, wallpaper posting little sweetheart, Keanu_soul.

Thank you all for sharing your blogs for this, my special day. Kisses to you all.

*stickman, surrounded by several huge and armed security men lifts his wand again*

I would like to thank my limousine driver, my maid, my make-up director, my publicist... *loud music interrupts* *shouting* My coiffeuse! All the lovely people who read and comment at Keanuvision! I love you all! *Is dragged off stage, still looking fabulous, by previously mentioned armed security men*

Seriously guys, this is just the greatest thing ever! Julie! I can't believe you went to so much trouble. You are the coolest, rockiest, most funnest chick ever!

And the rest of you, thanks so much for giving parts of your blogs for it and for making those cool birthday pictures. I feel so *special*. I will get to each and every one of your sites and leave a special message for you all, but right now my husband is taking me to a fancy restaurant for a fancy birthday supper and I have to put on my fancy clothes.

Thanks for all the b'day wishes! *warm feelings*

*giggles* Niobe, what is Canadian MLS?

Oh! and thanks for the comment about the "thing" link Julie!, I just now got to the end of the story. WHOA! That's what I call HOT! Did you make that?

Posted by: Zen on February 6, 2004 01:45 PM

You know just what to say Zenny. I think Wrygrass has taken out his...uh,I mean..."her" pen again. She is so clever and talented like you Julie...what a blog! Oh, and what a present...could anyone want more? Must remember to thank the Canadian Board of Tourism for the subliminal messages and make it a holiday soon (and of course secure all the details)

Thanks Julie!

Posted by: Shelz on February 6, 2004 01:53 PM

You found it, you found it!!!! :-D
Happy birthday sweety :-)

And no, I could never make such a beautiful picture *giggle*
All credit goes to the amazing Miss 'moan & groan' Krix, who is still recovering from being the bearer of the thing, LOL!

Posted by: Julie! on February 6, 2004 02:06 PM

Zen, M is for Maple, L is for Leaf and S, well, that shouldn't be too difficult to guess now... ;-) What did you think it was???
Hope you had a wonderful fancy-shmancy evening!

Posted by: Niobe on February 6, 2004 02:08 PM


Sorry about not changing the link in time...

I went out and was captivated by the dashing Dr Mercer...

My feet are firmly back on the ground now.

Posted by: Keanuette on February 6, 2004 03:22 PM

Happy Birthday, Zen.
I hope you and Mr. Zen had a lovely evening.

You rock.

Posted by: krix on February 6, 2004 06:00 PM

First off...HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS TO YA, Zen! :D I hope your day was special from beginning to end.

And Julie!...Wow! The work that must've gone into the making of this epic. Nicely done, schat.

Well Niobe, I thought maybe MoLSon Canadian beer. *wink*

Happy Birthday Zen! Hope you had a wonderful birthday! Great job Julie! and all the other hosts. Keanu fans are most awesome! :-)

Sorry I was late, I was floating off in my own little world...

Posted by: Tabitha on February 7, 2004 07:36 AM

Zen, I hope you had a most excellent birthday with Mr. Rawks!

I knew Julie! had a maple syrup habit, but I've never heard it called maple leaf syrup before. When you said mls I immediately thought ... MLS!

Julie!, you're storytelling skills are most impressive! You need to publish something and share it with the rest of the world [especially those who do not own a computer like our Ke]!

Posted by: sta-cie on February 7, 2004 01:07 PM

what a great friend you are Julie! and Happy Birthday Zennie, hope it was great. we all love you and Julie! Take care and God bless janice

Posted by: Janice on February 7, 2004 05:51 PM

Aw, thanx again y'all :-)
R.J, I wanted to write you in as an elf with a Texas drawl, but because there's so many Kblogs, I had to go for the 'blinkie' ones. I felt totally rotten about that :-( because I think you rock :-)

& Sta-cie, I could never publish anything, I'm way too insecure. You can't tell from my comments, but I had the most violent attack of stage-fright EVER just before I started posting them. Do you remember that I was supposed to start leaving the string one hour earlier then I did? That's why I was so late.
The only reason I went through with it, is because you all knew about it and I couldn't go back anymore. I didn't had enough time (insanely busy at work) to do a proper spelling-check, and I wanted to 'shorten' it, but I didn't have the time, and, and, and...

I thought some parts sucked (or at least weren't as good as I wanted them to be for Zen) myself, that's why all your sweet compliments mean more to me then you'll ever know :-)

I really *did* develop wrinkles because of all this, LOL!

Posted by: Julie! on February 8, 2004 02:26 PM

Awwww, Julie! You're the sweetest! I'm extremely flattered that you even *considered* including me, but I didn't expect it because I don't have a blog at all (Keanu OR regular) ;) I'm just the little parasite that lives off the creative types amongst us here. Whew, that's totally supposed to be a joke and not a pity-party, I promise. :D

Anyway~thanks again, doll! Oh, yeah...and you rock, too. :)
