Back to Work or Why You Shouldn’t Leave in the Middle of an Explosion

January 10, 2013 by


I thought picking up again after the holidays would be really straight forward. I had the next scene totally laid out for me. Half of it’s already written, I just need to string it together. But. I kind of stopped for the holidays in the middle of a fight. And I’m coming back to it […]

Driving in Fog is Like Sleepwalking, You Never Know Quite Where You’ll End Up

August 30, 2012 by


The view out our windscreen this morning. And then the truck ahead disappeared. It took me rather longer than I would like to be bothered by that. I think my survival instincts are on the fritz. This is probably because I am in desperate need of more sleep. Yes, I know, tired is my natural state […]

Rick: It was me. I did it while you were sleeping. Me: Oh come on, what are the odds of that happening? Rick: Not good? Okay, I knocked you out. Me: You actually think you could get away with that? Rick: I’m a ninja. Me: And you think I wouldn’t notice the concussion when I […]

Happy Whatever Shut Up Now

December 8, 2011 by


Generally I like this time of year. Everyone stops working at the same time. Except for those that don’t. And Paul S., who actually volunteers to work over the holidays. Okay, so ‘everyone’ might be an exaggeration, given I can’t even say ‘everyone in my house’… Well, I like the songs that you only hear […]
