    Snowflake In case you missed it. A BBC quiz about punctuation. I scored a woeful 5/10. There goes my career as a (would-be) writer. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/5BrQRSTxg6cslZKcrMnfc40/the-apostrophe-quiz?intc_type=promo&intc_location=news&intc_campaign=perfectpunctuation&intc_linkname=radio4_ent_quiz

      Snowflake Yes. I took it off as The cloud had me being 50 quite a while back. Same day as Her Majesty, Robert Smith of The Cure and Iggy Pop!

    Thanks ;-) Drawing slippers on a fox was harder than I thought.

    Very inspirational, I've been learning a lot since my WW course, reading the forum and snippets of stories like yours. Thanks for sharing it. You have given me much to think about for my own writing.

    The Mickey Mouse umbrella stand was a playful addition but now I'm curious about the thing that looks like a grandfather clock but with extra dials. What will that turn out to be?

    Oh Whisks, I'm crying reading this. What a wonderful person you are to take care of this little cub. Your description of Hoppy dancing in his Morrocan slippers has given me an idea for a drawing.

    I'd like to second Tom Waits. I love Tom Waits. Telephone call from Istanbul - GENIUS. Maybe next year. Also, if we're looking at singer songwriters for their poetry, how about Leonard Cohen?

    Thanks :) Somewhere in the universe and beyond and along the space-time continuum, it's always someone's birthday. The Cloud is stratospheric, after all.

    So you're an ex-illustrator? Explains Shaun Tan! If I am captured by his book, I'll keep an eye out for the film you mentioned.

    I see you like Shaun Tan. I've just got a copy of The Arrival - yet to read/browse, but it looks intriguing!
