Lil bits

Oh dear, I've been invaded!
All night long my blog has been awash with seekers of the mythical 'Mistress Minx' - I am, apparently, now a sex site offering a virtual 'Blogflog' - ( have I just made up a new concept? Hmmm.......could be a possibility!!).
So, I must learn from this and not include words such as Mistress, Madame, Minx, sex, whipping or submission in my Blog Posts (did that last one have any conotations do you think?).

The MD handed me a little black book from the Independent yesterday called 'The Indypedia' (Part 1, A-K) - 'looks like one of your lists' he said. And yes, here are some I liked:

Acronyms, computer

WWW......World Wide Wait

MS-DOS.....Microsoft's Defective Operating System

WINDOWS....Will Install Needless Data On Whole System

ISDN......It Still Does Nothing

AOL......America Off Line

MSN......Massive Spamming Network

APPLE.....Arrogance Produces Profit Losing Entity

CD-ROM.......Consumer Device Rendered Obsolete in Months

IBM......I Blame Microsoft

PENTIUM.......Produces Erroneous Numbers Through Incorrect Understanding of Mathematics

MICROSOFT......Most Intelligent Customers Realise Our Software Only Fools Teenagers


It also had a list of 'best dressed women' so I added a bit to this one.....

1. Kate Moss......a fashion stick

2. Scarlett Johansson.....an acting stick

3.Sienna Miller.....Jude's (ex?) stick

4. Gwen Stefani...an unusual stick

5. Nicole Kidman.....an unreasonably tall stick

6 Angelina Jolie.....a very lucky stick (grrr)

7. Kirsten Dunst....a pretty stick

8. Jennifer Aniston.... an 'I lost my stick to the lucky stick' stick

9. Keira Knightly.....a wannabe stick

10. Victoria Beckham.....a twig in Versace

Ther's also a list of 'Awareness Days' and I'm signing up for these:

Potato Day.....Jan
Loud Tie Week .....Jan/Feb
Pig Day.....Mar
Spam Appreciation Week...Mar
Panic Day...Jun
Orgasm Day....Jul
Talk like a Pirate Day....Sept
Sleep-in day (only a day?) ....Oct
World Toilet Day.....Nov

I will give Novel Writing Month a miss in Nov as I think I more than cover this one and beside who thought that one up, a month, I ask you!

This week's Indypedia book starts with Aardvarks (apparently there's four in the UK) and finishes with Knives - 'Knives handed in during the last national knife amnesty in 1995: 40,000' - just had a mental picture of housewives all over the land hand in the cheese knife and that strangely shaped one that came in a set and no one knows what to do with it. Can't wait for the next installment.
But whilst you're waiting pop over to Concepts for a buntiful World to learn about your inner Fae (fairy). I'm a rather ugly Dark Elf with a mean pair of black, pointy ears

D'ya reckon there's any chance of some money being made from blogflogging?

Noooo! Don't miss Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

I've done it for the last two years and it's the best thing ever.

Even though I too write all year round, I plan to do all my first drafts in November now.

So that's what NaNoWriMo stands for! I keep seeing the acronym and wondered -- sounds vaguely science-fictiony (I thought it had to be something to do with nanotechnology).
So what does the "Na" stand for then? (I can just about work out the NOvel WRiting MOnth).
