The Mystery of the Missing Post

by Mothership on January 6, 2010

The last post was so crap I was forced to delete it.

Oh. I didn’t make that very hard to solve, did I?  (Note to self: Must make plots more complex in order to draw readers in..)

Apologies to my one lovely commenter, London City Mum, (medal forthcoming for her stoicism in the face of maudlin self pity with total lack of entertainment as a distraction) who very kindly offered me some sage advice which I will accept as soon as I stop being Neville (below).

Of course I still have nothing interesting to write, so I am going, for the very first time, to give you a VIDEO to watch which will feature (most appropriately) my aforementioned namesake and all the other Gashleycrumb Tinies.

Ooh! The delights of YouTube!

However, there is no substitute for an old fashioned pen-and-ink BOOK so if you don’t own this one, buy it immediately. No child’s education is complete without Edward Gorey and it is just not possible to grow up and be a proper malcontent such as my good self without his mighty works.

Have you done that yet?


Now you can sit back and enjoy the show.

No apologies necessary! Hmmm… uplifting little film, eh?

BTW – did you know that when you click on the YouTube video above it shows an advert to “Turn yourself into a cartoon”?!? Maybe just on my one, but it has given me an idea…..

Of course with the blog still being by ‘invite only’ due to Paranoid Former Employer’s continuous total a*sewipe attitude, no-one except the exclusive audience (cough cough) who are signed-up members would be able to view my masterpiece…

Business plan, I need another business plan.

I have never seen those before! Deliciously ghoulish….
I feel a bit like Neville at the moment, too. I just can’t be bothered….

I am depressed now. Boo-hoo.

I remember deleting a crap post too but forgot that people had already read it! I don’t bother now, just write another.

Love them! But now I must dig through boxes of old books to find the ones I know I have somewhere. Guess its an excuse to organize the basement!
