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 .)
