Zone Doubt, a.k.a. 'Surreal Я Us'...

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 know what it is about KLF's Justified and Ancient that I like so much. The bouncy beat? The twangy guitars? The funny little spoken bits (that probably mean something if you're a musician - which I'm not)? The completely incomprehensible lyrics? The mention of ice-cream? Or just the title, which echoes how I feel a lot of the time. Well, the 'ancient' bit, anyway...
Yup, Lutra whapped me over another couple of mp3s, this and Living on a Prayer (Bon Jovi) [my ears and my brain say 'Thank You' Lutra!]. There can't be that many tracks on my list now left to find. Though I've lost the list. Tch'. That'll teach me to not transfer hand-scrawled notes to a .doc file...
Justified and Ancient is a great, if temporary, reviver after a busy day, and today has been busy. Up early after... um... two?... hours sleep, Kai to school, shopping on the way back, several hours of FirstLight, then a cycle's nap because I couldn't keep my eyes open, then off to St George's Community Centre this evening to discuss their website requirements with the committee (domain and webspace now ordered - site to follow). It's a nice little commission for something clean, simple and user-friendly like the BCP site, and their colours are emerald green and white. Quite looking forward to it!
It rained while I was there. Well, when I say rain, I don't mean that nice refreshing wet stuff, I mean it hammered down for a good 45 minutes. Luckily it had almost stopped by the time I headed back to the bus stop, but the roads were awash (and given that the Centre is actually some distance up Two Mile Hill that was quite a sight!)
[bemused] I was going to scan/post Kai's illustration of his TARDIS, but he pointed out, quite rightly, that he hasn't copyrighted it yet and he doesn't want anyone else pinching the idea - so I'm not allowed to. Well, if nothing else it goes to show he takes in what we talk about, and properly understands the concepts. (Which reminds me, Sue, he says 'yes' re: the TARDIS ride - once he's built it...)
This is new; their flyer, menu and money-off vouchers were posted through the door - along with bumf from UKIP, Respect, the LibDems, Pizza Hut and AA loans: snail spam - earlier today. It all sounds very tasty...
... I'm wittering (you can tell I'm tired, can't you?) I was going to toss around some thoughts on what is 'normal' and who the hell decides it anyway, but I think I'm too glaikit tonight. Maybe tomorrow.
And they say that a hero could save us - I'm not gonna stand here and wait...
