Snowbound

Due to an abundance of snow, and for the most part we’re inconvenienced here by even a light dusting, there has been quite a lot of down time lately. No doubt someone will mutter about the billions-worth of lost productivity and eventually we will find ourselves unaccountably responsible for the national debt due to chucking a few snowballs about instead of growling at co-workers and sending pointless emails with red flags attached. Meanwhile, in the absence of proper direction, much of the population is regressing to the year Daft and cavorting around in wellies with dogs. Any dogs will do, even … Continue reading Snowbound

Prune-Ella, Queen of the Dessert

Yes! Finished the exercise and submitted it to CC for what will probably be a right royal chewing! I’m not even sure if I followed the rules or not as appreciation of parts of speech and flying participles (or was that buttresses?) was obstinately non-stick at school, predating teflon by some considerable margin. I’ve always written rather more by feel than by knowledgable construction and so can come unstuck, to pursue the metaphor (or is it an analogy?

Trials of a MySpace Migrant

Hello, I’m Suzanne and this is my online venture into Proper Blog Writing. I’ve blogged anonymously on MySpace for a couple of years now and seem to attract a larger number of bands hoping to sell me their home-made CDs than adoring fans in awe of my erudite prose and sparkling wit. Of course it could be that erudition and sparkle upped sticks and left home after a brief outing in around 1956 but heck a girl’s got to have ambition, right? Anyway, it seemed about time to move onto what appears to be a more grown-up platform for what may yet turn … Continue reading Trials of a MySpace Migrant
