Firstly – apologies – I’ve taken on so much that I’m struggling to juggle writing my book/series/shared-world piece & blog in equal measures, I’m attempting to be what is commonly accepted in the modern world as a ‘good’ father and I’m dealing with the delights of a day job… this has made me forge the idea that I need to go AWOL for a while, live on a desert island with a football called Wilson and eat coconuts…
On a good note, my novel is forming nicely. I have some poignant scenes and I like where it’s going. The interesting thing for me is a lot of the research – it’s based on Earth and the Moon and spans from 1937 through to the mid 1970s.
A lot of oddball things go through a person’s head at times like these. Here are some of mine;
What is the speed of dark?
What happens when you get scared half to death twice?
Why is abbreviated such a long word?
Who’s cruel idea was it to put an S in LISP ?
How can a house burn up when it burns down?
Why are a wise-man and a wise-guy opposites?
Why is the time when the traffic is the slowest called RUSH HOUR?
How comes you can tell a person that there are 400 billion stars in the sky and they’ll believe you, but if you tell them there is WET PAINT they have to touch it?
Finally – I checked the answers to these because I couldn’t live without knowing them…
What is the plural of Moose?
It’s actually Moose.
Why don’t you ever see a baby pigeon?
They do exist – they are the ugliest monstrocities you will ever see. They simply don’t leave the nest until they’re ugly enough.
Whatever happened to Michael Jackson’s pet monkey Bubbles?
Apparently he is still alive today, but he tried to commit suicide in 2003.
I will sleep well tonight.
