Excuses, Excuses…

So obviously I’ve fallen behind with the ‘write something creative and publish it every day thing’.

To be honest, I can’t even use the excuse that I’m so busy that I don’t have time. When I have been doing the creative writing, it’s been on Crysiline. I don’t know why, but that story just gets me. I just love writing it, even though it’s going nowhere. I mean obviously it is, but normally I rush through the beginning to get to the exciting bits. But with this story, I’m happy to take my time and really work through it, editing bits I hate etc.

One thing that worries me is that by posting it on here, I won’t be able to publish it eventually. Maybe I never will get it published. I don’t know. It’s whatever.

Only next year, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to work on a book, probably this one and eventually get it published. Hopefully.

But yes, this was a lame excuse of a post, and I should have been writing more often. The only reason I’m writing now is because I have work to do.

Answer Anybody?

So I get bored as easily as the next person. I sometimes just find myself sitting doing nothing but staring into blankness. But one day, I was typing a few things into Google (yes I use Google because IT’S BETTER THAN BING!) when I came across this amazing thing called Yahoo Answers. Whenever you want to know something, just type the question into Googla and almost garuanteed, the question will have been asked on Yahoo Answers. So I signed into my account and tried it out.

‘Four of my Fish have died in 2 Days?’ (that’s a story for another time)

I managed to receive around 5 comments in 15 minutes. After that, I was hooked.

I became extremely interested in the ‘Relationships’ section. People would ask what to do about their boyfriends, or if a person liked them based on their behaviour. And then it came to me. Why ask a real question? Where’s the fun in that? So that was the birth of my evening entertainment. The first question was moderately tame:

‘My Boyfriend is cheating on me with my Nan’

But it wasn’t the questions that excited me- it was the description that had me gasping for air, unable to breathe from laughing so hard. Here is my favourite one- it still makes me laugh now:

‘My parents don’t approve of my marriage to my Step-Brother.’

Description: I’ve been with my step-brother around two years now. We moved in together a year ago. We have the same dad but not the same mum, so it’s not incestuous or anything. I just don’t understand why they don’t want anything to do with the wedding! I want my dad to walk me down the isle and be there for the birth of their first grandchild (it’s a girl by the way).

I think writing that was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Some of the answers indicated that these people didn’t get what was so wrong with this situation, and it cracked me up.

Of course, I wrote these questions under a fake name, and I still write them today. I asked one of my friends what question I could write next and she said:

‘I find it attractive when people eat their own pus- is this normal?’

And I thought I was twisted.
