  1. Today
  2. Oof! Work's getting rough. Two doofuses think it's alright to not show up, and I'm not sure they realize they're already on the chopping block. 

    I might need to add another chapter to Dear, Grocery Shoppers...

  3. With Musings of a Future Baron complete, and the end of Act One reached in Cassiel and Theofrid's story, I am already hard at work on getting down Act Two. The story doesn't stop with the bad guys dead; no, there is a lot more to come. But due to the nature of the rest of the game, it will be nigh impossible to write as Act One was written, so I'll be returning to my usual style of writing without a clear victory in this journaling foray. I think the first person point of view is not for me.

    Regardless, to those who read the very short story, thank you, and you can look forward to the first chapter in Act Two come the 20th.

  4. It was 7:35 when I realized I had no milk! So I threw on my coat, scarf and gloves (still only 6 above zero) and rushed to my little grocery store, six blocks away. There were a lot people rushing about. The store already had the lights out, but he knew me, got me a milk and said pay him tomorrow (see, there are still good people around). It was now 7:58, I did not see a single soul on the way back home. It is at times like this, that you realize how our lives have changed in just over a year, when you have to look over your shoulder, worried about just getting home. Apprehensive about being stopped, asked for ID and where you are going, 'Big Brother Is Watching' .:/

    Damn, I forgot I had a Knorr Sidekicks Chicken Fried Rice (7 min) on the stove. It has been 15 min +, I think I will have to throw the pan out.:facepalm: The rice is as black and hard as the pan. Grilled cheese and cup of soup, I guess.

      To rescue that pan fill it with warm soapy water  and leave it overnight.

  6. Yesterday
  7. I spent two hours on this so far, then erased it all. It was all doom and gloom about covid. Let us just say, I think things will worsen in the short turn, but will get better as more people get vaccinated, fingers crossed.

     

    Some needed  humor

     

    Beer Bottle: You break me, you get 1 year of bad luck!

    A taxi passenger taps the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question. The driver screams, loses control of the car, nearly hits a bus, goes up on the footpath, and stops centimeters from a shop window. For a second, everything goes quiet in the cab, then the driver says, "Look mate, don't ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!" The passenger apologizes and says, "I didn't realize that a little tap would scare you so much.” The driver replies, "Sorry, it's not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver. I've been driving a funeral van for the last 25 years."

    I watched the Funeral this morning. Her Majesty, looked so alone and frail, even with the family there.

  9. Grats on reaching 20k Comm-rep!!!

  10. The Windsor's had a bright sunny day for the somber burial of their patriarch.  May he rest in peace and his family cherish their recollections of a long lifetime of his always being there for them. 

  11. You won the award on September 9th. Interesting, considering, that's my birthday. And, The Artful Dodger just so happens to be one of my favorite characters of all time.

  12. Last week
  13. I was looking up a dear friend here on GA, who hasn't been heard from since August 2017, @glitteryantlers.

    With the new criteria for membership, I fear that all traces of her will soon vanish from the site. Her birthday is fast approaching and I hope that I will get to wish  her at least one more HB before that happens. I think that will leave me as the last Hungarian here at GA.

    One of her posts lead me to a @jamessavik blog ( May 20, 2017), a precursor, that was a scary warning of what was to come in 2020 and see how prophetic his entry was, spooky!

  14. Hey ya fellow bibliophiles,

    Blackthorn chapter 2 is up. :sheep:

  15. Hello, I had nothing positive to say all week, so I kept my big mouth shut.

    The good news, I have been up and about and feeling okay this week. The bad news, the third wave has hit us, new cases are really up and as of last Sunday the curfew is back to 8 PM. Oh, and the temperature is at 5 above zero, so I will be wearing, my coat, scarf and gloves to go to the store with an umbrella. It has been raining non stop for two days, now (liquid sunshine?).

    A Bit of Humor

    Late one night a burglar broke into a house and while he was sneaking around he heard a voice say, "Jesús is watching you." He looked around and saw nothing. He kept on creeping and again heard, "Jesús is watching you." In a dark corner, he saw a cage with a parrot inside. The burglar asked the parrot, "Was it you who said Jesús is watching me" The parrot replied, "Yes." Relieved, the burglar asked, "What is your name?" The parrot said, "Clarence." The burglar said, "That's a stupid name for a parrot. What idiot named you Clarence?" The parrot answered, "The same idiot that named the rottweiler Jesús."

     

    I am not sure why 15 is such a popular number, but who am I to argue. So here are two more videos of 15. The first one taught me something new. The second, that nothing really surprises me any more.

  17. We got our second Moderna shot on Wednesday just before noon.  Twelve hours later, no apparent side-effects.

      Congrats on your second shot. Glad to hear no ill effects. It seems this is one time being a "mature" adult pays benefits over youth.

  18. It’s very weird to be Wednesday and not have a chapter to share after 44 weeks straight.

      Ha, I remember having one of those, opposite our back yard. They had the added advantage of being able to gossip in laborious detail and to fill in the blanks that modern day digital cameras simply can't reveal. 😅

      Yes and at least someone else was listening to this lot. With most security cameras nobody even looks at what they record (!!).

  20. I never attempt NaPoWriMo properly and last year, not at all. However this year, @Valkyrie's prompts struck a chord. Find my rusty attempts here: https://gayauthors.org/story/northie/re-verse/11 There may be more to follow... 🤨 😄

  21. Hey everyone,

    I'm not sure how much I'll be around over the next few days. My Dad passed away this morning and as the eldest I'm the executor and tasked with organising everything.

    Take care all x

  22. Oh, jeez! I just posted a dark chapter and now my other story is heading that way too! Hopefully this won't be as bad, but I can't wait to get back to adorableness and innocence! Fingers, what are you doing to my writing?!

      Update:  dark scene completed, and I'm flying so high on how I ended it! Holy crap! (please refer to Peter Boyle's role from Everybody Loves Raymond) You know when you come out of a writer's block and come up with a wheel-barrel full of diamonds? My toes are still tingling, and it's been a few minutes!
