Martha, school dinners, horses, Mr Steven Spielberg and Harry Potter


I do not wish to be grumpy but I have noticed something….. It first started with that Harry Potter and all his wand waving saying silly words, OK it is not his fault after all he is not even real, he is merely a figment of the imagination. He really should have stood up for himself a bit better and made sure he got a cut of the royalties. Anyway the point is everybody loves B******* ********* Harry Potter and he is read by millions Ya Sucks Boo.

Then just as Harry vanished off to settle down in domestic bliss, I thought that nice Mr Steven Spielberg will be thinking of making ‘Rob Z Tobor the movie’ when some sneaky horse turns up and offers him a deal he cant refuse, taking him for a ride in the process. Yes I know I have done all this before, but there is a point.

Today on the wireless and in the newspaper I hear and read of an eight year old girl called Martha whose blog on school dinner has had something like two or three million hits….. WHAT? I am sure Martha is quite a nice little girl; in fact she appears to have got the better of the corporate wheels of the local council, so well done. But as a blogger in the darkest corner of cyberspace what is it with the general public that a blog on school dinner is a smash hit while I’m left with a small band of loyal followers. I say loyal but most of them will desert me for a bar of chocolate or a packet of salted peanuts, Its no good denying it.  So am I down hearted NO although I might mention school dinners a bit more in passing, things like tapioca pudding…… OK maybe not YUK.



OK I have almost finished the make shift canopy for the family Barbecue tomorrow to protect us from the elements. However in the process I have tried to saw my finger off with a wood saw, dropped a twenty five foot by five inch piece of hazel on my head which also twisted my finger rather badly  and then got stung by some sort of hornet . The good news is everything happened to the same hand so the right hand is just hunky dory. The bad news is I am left handed.

  1. Oh no, I hope your hand gets better soon! And I couldn't believe that story either, so many hits just because of a school dinner! But that was just a fluke, you'll get more followers, you just need to be patient :) And keep posting your awesome stuff! :)

  3. I would never desert you for bar of chocolate Rob Z...unless it's a years supply of Ferrero Rocher and then you're on your own.

    'A Cult Classic,' that's how I like to think of your blog. And as we know, Cult Classics always start off small before gaining a huge following.

    Before to long, old Spielberg will be hammering down your door and begging you to sign a contract.

    Hope your hand is okay Rob Z. We need you fully intact, to carry on the good work.

    1. A cult classic sounds rather good Miss Lily. I have been waiting for the nice Mr Spielberg for a while now, but he keeps making excuses. Like "Rob it's total Rubbish" I know he does not mean it and is just haggling over a price for the manuscript.

      The hand is much better thanks it will give me a good excuse to type badly for a few days.
