Just another mandarin day...



So, I got a phone call saying did I know the head high pooh-pah-doo-dah was arriving in the office tomorrow? Yes. I did. I actually read that email. Was I prepared for this VIP? Uh, what’s to prepare? He'll walk…probably float…through, nod to the plebiscite and then spend a whole hour talking to a bunch of engineering type men while I write a story…er...work very, very hard at whatever I’m supposed to do and then he'll leave and I expect gold dust will be left in his wake as a trail of his magnificence at being in the office. Other than making a note to sweep up the gold dust for assaying later I can’t think of anything else I have to do. Apparently I’m not appropriately impressed enough. Well, no…unless he can turn water into wine he’s not much use to me. Yes, I expect I’ll get into trouble. I also expect I’ll eat a mandarin…same old same old really…

Hmmm...I don't tend to get hooked on someone's writing, but I was out harmlessly looking for a gecko image for my latest never-to-be-completed book, and yours was by far the cutest. Especially since the others were all real and junk, and some had bug parts in their pointy teeth. Not exactly appropriate for a children's story.

So there I am, shamelessly stealing the gecko image (which you no doubt stole yourself), and then it happened...damn hook was set and I was stuck.

In case you're wondering, and haven't yet dismissed this as mad stalker ramblings, I am referring to your post on the 5th of November...waaaay back in 2011. I would have left a comment there, but I was still struggling with the hook (do you use titanium? WTF...not fair).

So I skipped to now, and again remained on the line. And now I'm running away because the LAST thing I need is to get wrapped up in an entirely entertaining, wonderfully written, completely irreverent collection of words with which to boil away my increasingly non-productive day.

Good stuff. Really. You deserve way more comments from people...
