Sheesh Steve, I didn't realise you were all posh-like. I should show more respect when giving you crits ;)

 ;D ;D ;D

Oh yes, if you arrive early enough each morning, you can see the Changing of the Guard outside my Council house, Sat  ;D ;D

A really distant ancestor was the subject of a poem titled by Seamus Heaney, don'tcha know  ;)

Quote
"Sweeney Astray" is Seamus Heaney's version of the medieval Irish work "Buile Suibhne". Its hero, Mad Sweeney, undergoes a series of purgatorial adventures after he is cursed by a saint and turned into a demented flying creature at the Battle of Moira.

Sounds familiar ;D

I'm sure there's a sketch in there somewhere :)
"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

The Movie "HOT FUZZ"
It is like a cross between a Quintin Tarintino film and Monty Python.\
I thought it briliiantly funny. My brother did not get it thought, he found it daft.

Also,
Any ANNE RICE novel. I think she is a very eloquent writer.

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer.
You have just read a post by i8ur_pie.
Be thankful. Unless it was an unhappy post in which i8ur_pie threatens to torture you slowly, until you beg for death, and then torture you some more. If it is one of those posts, do not be happy. Be afraid. But if it is a post of other nature, do enjoy.

But are the guards there to keep others out, or to keep you in ;-)

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1
