Yesterday, while scouring Facebook timeline announcements like a ferret seeking an errant contact lens, a mischievous notion manifested from deep within my capricious mind. Concluding this epiphany, although admittedly silly, was a harmless enough conception to include these observations within this prose. As is my want when scribing these journals, or posting online, I constantly…

By George, It’s Next Week!!

Yesterday I wrote a series of absurd questions in preparation or a bi-weekly Zoom quiz with buddies that evening. These three short rounds of five queries covering the arbitrary unrelated topics of adages, old time singer/actor George Formby and icon of 1980’s kid’s TV Metal Mickey. These rounds of fictional inquiries written with tongue lodged…

Can You Tell What It Is Yet?

My buddy Sarah is back at work tomorrow after a ten day sabbatical away from her role as a care home support worker. This decuple of dawns and dusks spent predominantly in the company of a devilishly handsome chap and her two dogs. Not forgetting several hours in the presence of the Ossett lasses much…

Witnessing Euphoria

Yesterday evening, in between writing an absurd ‘True or False’ round in preparation for tonights Zoom quiz with buddies, I watched two Sky Arts recordings of live concerts by multi million album selling bands. Both musical bonanzas performed by British groups in two historic and cosmopolitan European capital cities. Incidentally, this isn’t a riddle, I’m…

Rod the Mod

I’d a strange dream overnight – This nighttime screenplay beginning with yours truly sitting in a dark theatre amongst hundreds of ex-work colleagues. The entertainment playing out during this night vision was provided by veteran singer/songwriter Rod Stewart, or Rod the Mod as people who call him Rod the Mod label him. As I’m totally…

Rhyme But No Reason

Friday morning retail hordes provide the bustling sight while I gaze below from a mezzanine in situ cafe. The first floor coffee house whose title rhymes with Hosta a frequent penning post for GJ Strachan. An outpost where cognitive inspiration joins caffeination leading to a brew of wonderful epiphanies, mediocre notions and a fair share…

Bloc D’écrivains

A topic for today’s blog currently evades me. This bloc d’écrivains not eased any by a panoramic scan of the living room’s contents, which aren’t providing much inspiration during this epiphany barren time. Amongst those items catching my eye are a dozen photographs of family members, a crystal filled wall unit, a nest of tables,…

Schooling A Snail

It won’t be the most exhilarating bulletin you’ll hear today, but later yours truly will be indulging in the potting of 20+ winter pansies….. Well, unless you really, really, really like yarns about the planting of wintertide bedding plans, in which case the news maybe brio manifesting…… Although, if it is the highlight of your…

Spin The Wheel

Below the mezzanine level coffee house where I’m sitting is an ongoing promotion for MG cars. Well, I’m assuming it’s a automobile promotion, not that the MG ZS and a MG HS PHEV cars I’m looking down upon took a wrong turn in the White Rose Shopping Centre car park, subsequently coming to an inglorious…
