Blog Post in which I don’t mention meeting a cat, locking your housemate in the house by accident and drinking from a humourous mug

19 Dec

Today, quite frankly I have nothing to blog about, so here is a post about that then.  Oh the irony!

dpd-bookshelf

All my books are pretty much all packed away as I could only take so many boxes on the first couple of trips  and none of those books aroused my excitement.  Couple that with having been engaged in some extremely enjoyable birthday celebrations and then also being privileged to play hunt the tin opener.

For the completists among you, it was in the place where you would expect it to be, thus giving more weight to the theory that it’ll be in the last place you look, as I considered the whole tin opener location to be a double bluff, as would any right minded person, anyway that is all the amusement I can muster for you guys today so I shall get to writing something substantial and proper for next time, stay tuned.

    You can even make blogging about nothing terribly entertaining. Although that picture of the empty bookcase is one of the saddest sights I have ever seen. Poor, lonely bookcase!

      It shall be filled sooner rather than later, as I shall be taking a few boxes back today, with more awesomeness in them. It’s almost like Christmas except I know what I have and have probably read them.

    I didn’t care about the cat, but you didn’t tell us what was in the tin.

      What was in the tin could have been a whole blog post in itself, although to cut a pointless post short it was Tuna fish. Just like The X-Files, the fun was in the mystery.

      I have never seen an episode of Seinfeld, Perhaps I shall investigate, I saw that show that Larry David did, if that’s the right name, the show that always put him in situations which he failed to easily avoid and made for cringeworthy viewing. I liked that.

              Every two or three days I shall keep updating. There is nothing like a promise to make you keep up with things. Or maybe it’s my new year’s resolution. Either way I will keep up the flow of random and/or interesting words.

      Many books, including one on the history of the ordnance Survey map which I haven’t got around to reading yet but promises to be fascinating. ‘I know you’ll never feel at home until your books are happy’, that is so true…

          If its like the short history of the New York sewer system that I read through five or so months ago then I am in for a real treat. That was a sentence I could only ever have dreamed of saying until you commented, so thank you and merry Christmas.

    What an excellent post! I have never enjoyed nothing so much in my life SteJ. A work of art. A “something” to enjoy. Seriously I (as you know) love to see you writing … most anything. I agree about the bookcase, I’m sure it’s filled by now!

      It is getting there, so much great stuff to read and share with you. I shall be writing though this year too, I shall carry on from where I left off with the Fair prologue and hopefully fashion the plot for a magical realism story with lots of layers and subtleties. At least that is the plan.

    I love chapter descriptions.. In Don Quixote, for example: Chapter XIV: In which is related the unfortunate adventure that Don Quixote fell in with when he fell out with certain heartless Yanguesans.
    And I LOVE your take on it in the post title. You didn’t even had to write the actual post. This title alone would suffice!

      I do like those old chapter headings that tell you what will happen and me being all playful and literary, I had to use that style of heading at some point. I haven’t read Don Quixote yet, although I do have a copy back in England. I am reading some Spanish literature at the moment though, which is ripe for a review in the coming weeks perhaps…
