“It’s nice to know that what you’re doing is being read and enjoyed by a good deal of people.” (or at least a couple, and neither of them’s your Mum)

It’s nice to be read. Blog stats, as I believe I’ve said before, are super-cool fun (teehee! Kitten Burger!) but pingbacks make my day. *sigh* It’s nice not to feel futile. Makes a nice change from the day-job!

Anyway, time to earn that absolute wave of blogosphere respect…

1) A continuation of last week’s literary theme (thanks for this link go to Kalafudra as I found it on her blog): you thought the weird titles of last week were a hoot? Take a look at the Literary Review’s Bad Sex in Fiction Awards, of which the late great Norman Mailer was the latest recipient. I was going to find you a snippet to stick here as a teaser, but quite frankly I couldn’t find much that wouldn’t get me fired or make me vomit inside my mouth, so you’ll just have to look for yourself – now there’s incentive!

Read the shortlisted passages. Out loud. To your significant other. If nothing else, roll-on-the-floor snot-dripping laughter will guaranteed bring you closer together…

2) I saw a Warhol exhibit on the weekend, so naturally I was going to try and find a Warhol-izer for you to play around with. I go searching, and what do I find? The time-waster MOTHERLODE, I tells ya! I present for your enjoyment The Generator Blog – not just one new toy to play with, but a new one pretty much every couple of days. Find your Harry Potter Name. Make and download your own mobile/cell phone wallpaper. Translate your name into Tibetan character. Oh, and when you resurface 3 years later, drop me a thankyou note, yeah?

3) Finally, out of a random mix of nostalgia and copyright nautiness (plus someone was singing the theme song when I was out the other night and it’s stuck in my head): here’s Disney’s sweetest ever cartoon: Lambert the Sheepish Lion. If you can prove the theme song did NOT get stuck in your head, I will publish a LTSL Hall of Fame next week and you will be on the list!



  1. Bad sex in fiction awards… priceless!

  2. “If you were Harry Potter, your name would be Harry Potter!”

    Kind of a disappointment – although I do like to have the main part 🙂

    Lambert is so cute – I didn’t know him before… “He’s not ferocious as a sheep but he has a sheepish grin.”
