The Blog Tour Continues and Moss from The IT Crowd Says Something Funny about Ears

Blog Gig
Got another blog gig :) I'll let you know more when I know which day it's going up. Writing-wise I'm editing, putting together post ideas for the blog tour and deciding whether or not to enter any writing competitions this month. They don't cost much but neither do they fall into the basket marked 'vital for existence' so I can't really justify the entry fees. There's a brochure downstairs for a writing course I really want to do but... *tone of resignation*...ah well.

Course de Force
So I can't afford the course? *Tone of righteous indignation* So what? If I can't afford the bloody course, I'll make my own. I'm sure if I put my mind to it and scour the library shelves enough I can find out all I need to put my own course together. I can even print out a certificate for myself at the end. Ha! Take that recession! *Blows raspberry at recession*.

A Life of Two Halves
Well, how is everyone? Life is split between bloody awful things happening in the real world and super-sparkly things happening on-line. The old brain is struggling: should it be freaking out about the super-bad things or celebrating the super-happy things? Celebrating the super-happy things feels better so I think, of the two, I'll pick that one.

IT Came to me Last Night
I watched the 'IT Crowd' last night (very funny English show about an I.T. Department buried in the basement of a large company. The noodly appendages so beloved by Pastafarians adorn the walls etc - typical of every I.T. department I've ever known.) Anyway, there was one line that cracked me up. Not sure why I found it so funny but I was giggling for ages.

Moss has a brilliant idea about showing up their 'boss' who is about to make a speech about computers - of which she knows nothing - and he is so excited about how brilliant this idea is that he warns his work mate:

"You'd best put seatbelts on your ears Roy, because I'm going to take them for the ride of their lives!" (for more go to
The IT Crowd .)

Toodle pip,

Its awesome to find another fan of the IT Crowd. Luckily I was able to stumble across it on Comcast here in the States, but (since I'm an IT geek myself) I find it incredibly hilarious. I honestly don't know which character I like better, Moss or Roy.

Moss... No Roy... no... Moss... no Jen 'if you type "google" the internet will explode'...It's too hard! I've just been on their site playing with the quote generator and, after the quote on the blog, this has to be my favourite Moss quote:

"Prepare to put mustard on those words for you will soon be consuming them, along with this slice of humble pie that comes direct from the oven of shame set at gas mark 'Egg on your Face'!" - Moss

Love it! Actually, if you go to the link in my blog and click it, you can watch recent episodes on your laptop by clicking on the 4OD button too.

Hi Moolissa,

Thanks for the comment. They're hysterical aren't they.

Everyone... Moolisa's just started up a great little blog and I'm sure she'd welcome a few guests to have a party at her place so pop over and scrawl something.

Rose, in particular - Moolisa's also a writer and I think Ms Pink has some competition!!

You should check out some of the calls for submissions in the forum at TW Rebecca. I'm looking forward to that guest article. ;)

It'll be in your inbox early next week, Rose. Can't wait!
