Zone Doubt, a.k.a. 'Surreal Я Us'...
Joules, trusted by... dozens... to make a drama out of your crisis...

I live to write. It's not wise to get in my way.
August 2011: the earlier posts in this blog are a mess, the result of me changing the format some time ago. I'm working to edit the entire blog from the beginning, but with over 4K posts and sodall time for such luxuries it's going to take a while... [02/09/16 - Now reached 09/10/2004][20/03/2019 - giving up. I don't have enough time to update the blog atm, let alone edit old entries!]
If you come across any words you don't recognise in this blog, take a look at the Taylorspeke Glossary in the left-hand infopane, you'll usually find a definition there.
First, a recommendation. Dive over to The Jonathan Day Fiction Site and try some of the stories. I love this author's writing - it's funny, bitingly witty, dryly incisive, chilling, and deliciously subversive by turns. Absolutely well worth a look!

I don't normally, but these are fun!
A - Act your age? Now, are we talking my physical age in this particular incarnation, or my mental age (6, according to GoodTwin...), or the complete number of years I've lived in all incarnations? I need specifics....
B - Born on what day of the week? Thursday's child has far to go (this time round)... Same as Lutra.
C - Chore you hate? Shoppinghouseworkwashingwashingupdustingvacuuming - anything that keeps me from writing. Except for quality time with sprog and mate, of course...
D - Dad's name? (In this incarnation... heh, going to stop saying that, take it as read...) Jim
E - Essential makeup item? Don't use it normally... cream to disguise bags under eyes? Cruelty-free and ethically sound, of course.
F - Favorite actor? Alan Rickman, Sean Connery, Bruce Willis, Zoe Wannamaker - and for eye-candy - Nicholas Tse...
G - Gold or silver? Platinum
H - Hometown? Is that where I live now (which I don't consider 'home') or where I was born this time round, or what?
I - Instruments you play? Keyboard (computer, that is). Does the human body count as an instrument?
J - Job title? Umm.... God? Creator of beings/worlds/continua/universes (on paper and rust, admittedly....)
K - Kids? One, this lifetime. That's quite enough, no wish to add to planet's overpopulation problem.
L - Living arrangements? Somewhat chaotic...
M - Mum's name? Dee
N - Number of people you've slept with? Oh ye gods, how'm I supposed to remember?!
O - Overnight hospital stays? Hn.... Several while carrying Kai (high blood pressure/threatened pre-eclampsia). Tonsils and adenoids as a child. Think that's it...
P - Phobia? Fire. And blindness, though that's not so bad any more. Worst, though, is cramped spaces. And being underground. Being trapped in a tiny place underground would be hell - especially if it was crowded as well. (Hang on, isn't that someone's definition of Hell?)
Q - Quote you like? "Get a grip"? "Get a grip"?! I'm in the wrong body on the wrong planet in the wrong galaxy at the wrong time and you expect me to "get a grip"?! (me to Carol)
R - Religious affiliation? Gaian mostly.
S - Siblings? Which planet/continua/incarnation are we talking?
U - Unique habit? Compulsion to hunt down information NOW rather than when it's convenient (thorough, not obsessive...)
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat? Parsnips. Make me throw up.
W- Worst habit?
X - X-rays you've had? Right forearm when 8 years old for greenstick fracture. Right foot (twice, for breaks to same bone). Lower back after a fall. Do mammograms count?
Y - Yummy food you make? Pork stroganoff, sushi, ghuvetsch, baked stuffed marrow, German potato soup....
Z - Zodiac Sign? Pisces. Creature of extremes. Extreme extremes.
So now you know. Or not, as the case may be!
