    I like fantasy as a genre, too, Dolly. It seems to have a lot to say about the world we live in today. Sometimes, though, it can be too plausible as reality often stretches the imagination.

    That sofa is just one single item in a whole warehouse of goodies called Corbyn's Trident Scrappage (formerly known as The Money Tree).

    Ella by Ella just now I need help. I have created a topic for homework for week 2, exactly as I did for week 1, previewed the post then when I tried to add the post I get a box saying No message entered - you must enter a message to continue, but it won't let me type anything in the box. The homework post is still in My topics but I can't post it on the forum. Didn't have this problem last time.

    Not strictly a literary device, but books about some middle-aged bloke who ends up having an affair with a much younger woman make me cringe inwardly. Even if I'm just reading the blurb. I know, I know - I might as well be defining most modern ...

    Needless and biologically gratuitous sex scenes. Not FSOG - that was the whole book. Just when a mediocre weakly plotted book explodes into some ridiculous shagging that could hospitalise many normal people for no good reason.

    Mashie Niblick
    Mashie Niblick Glastonbury. l fell out of love when it rained mud. I fell in love again this year. What changed? Corbyn preaching to the unconvertible. People in fancy-dress - the hippies are dead. People smoke furtively - they drink like fish instead, but they still pop pills. Everyone got a ticket by clicking online quickest, not by crawling through a hedge, or knowing someone who knows someone. Everyone found relief from 3 months of bad news, and were nice to each other, really nice. The toilets didn't smell too bad, and no-one fell in. But mobile phones did, haha. Most people went to the big stages, leaving little stages wonderfully uncrowded. Different isn't worse though. It's just different. I felt old, but the youth are so nice and made it OK.

      OFP Grandson's band, Urban Lions, got bumped. He went with his gf. Never saw the appeal of living in mud and shitting outside, even though in my youth I chose a trade that demanded it. Glad you enjoyed. Politics and music never overlap well. Clinton's sax, Obama's guitar, or Geldoph's circus in Africa. Glad you had a nice time. I can appreciate that.

      Mashie Niblick Drove in and out every day, so crapped and slept in luxury thanks. Talking of crap, Kieffer Sutherland had a set. The Dalai Lama was more comprehensible than JC. I saw people flicking through their programmes to see where the Commentariat were playing.

    OFP White Van Chronicles.... Recent events at both ends of the extremist spectrum have attempted to taint the image of us who live and earn our living in them. Fuckem. Meanwhile, I am people watching today in Mayfair. Extraordinary shift change between 05:45 and 10:00. Like two separate dimensions.... A long way from Mudflat-on-Ditch, this is.... "It's life, Jim. But not as we know it..." Blog may follow.

    Bad writing from best-selling authors. Grammar and spelling mistakes littering the books. Why the hell don't publishers encourage and supervise quality as well as making money and pandering to the authors? Stupid question, I guess - as the readers ...
