Celina OurHope and the Hole-in-the-Shell Gang

Elsewhere in time, Celina builds up trouble by joining forces with Conner. The House of Cards game is deliciously twisty. So we have updates to her web pages.

It hit me today in wondering at the Bad Things rolling up into the PC's path that she is something like the back-east-educated Catherine Ballou getting thrown off her pins and into trouble with a growing band of eccentric specialists.

It would not surprise me to find out that before too long, folks want to hang Celina for a killin'.

Just wait until she finds Khela.
Real trouble.

Ballad of Cat Ballou
Artists: Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye
Words by Mack David and Music by Jerry Livingston
title song from the 1965 film starring Jane Fonda, Lee Marvin
Cole and Kaye, as strolling minstrels, functioned as a Greek chorus, commenting on the action


Well now friends just lend an ear
For you're now about to hear
The ballad of Cat Ballou
It's a song that's newly made
And Professor Sam The Shade
And the Sunrise Kid are singin' it for you

Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou

It's a hangin' day in Wolf City, Wyomin'
Wolf City, Wyomin', eighteen ninety four
They're gonna drop Cat Ballou
Through the gallows floor

She killed a man in Wolf City, Wyomin'
Wolf City, Wyomin', killed a man it's true
And that is why they're a-hangin'
Hangin' Cat Ballou

She has the smile of an angel
(Fights like the Devil)
The eyes of an angel
(Bites like the Devil)
The face of an angel
(I say she's the Devil)
(She's mean and evil through and through)

Cat Ballou, Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through

With her outlaw band they're now tellin' a story
Now tellin' a story how she rode the plain
The wildest gal in the We-est
Since Calamity Jane

And today's the day that she's goin' to glory
She's goin' to glory for the way she sinned
They'll be a-speedin' her soul
On a wayward wind

She has the smile of an angel
(Fights like the Devil)
The eyes of an angel
(Bites like the Devil)
The face of an angel
(I say she's the Devil)
(She's mean and evil through and through)

Cat Ballou (Cat Ballou)
Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou (Cat Ballou)
She's mean and evil through and through

Cat Ballou, Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through

You just brightened my day. I was beginning to think I was the only person who knew about that movie aside from the folks pulling orders at Amazon...
