The A to Z Challenge, a day off . . . . . . HA I laugh in the face of adversity
As you know (on the blog) today being Sunday it is a day off from the long pitter-patter of tiny letters towards Z on the great A to Z challenge, and is my way I have of course entered into the true spirit of it as I write the slightly eccentric A to Z of Fairy tales. But as I said today is a day off and so I am bringing my diary up to date with the events of the week, which I have to say has finally seen a slight improvement in the weather with sun although not much heat. I have also started doing one or two of my allocated tasks, painting straight lines although it is not easy on walls with rubbish edges, I have complained to the walls about it, but to use the well known saying ‘It is like talking to a brick wall’, but then it is a brick wall . . . . . . . . AH mum says I’m an IDIOT and I should be painting not typing. I have also done a little tongue and grove wood panelling in another location, although I have got distracted and have not quite finished that.
I have also discovered that I can not draw a guillemot, I was planning to draw one million of them for the letter G fairy tale on Monday, but as I cant draw that well, and to put it bluntly am not sure what a guillemot looks like and cant be bothered to find out it is a bit tricky. And I have been told that goats and green beans are not part of their diet normally and they prefer fish but then fish don’t fly gliders and goats do….
One small technical error in trying to complete this foolish task of writing the greatest A to Z of fairy tales known to man is I am also drawing pictures for each letter so I have stupidly doubled my work. It is amazing how many of the blogs involved in the A to Z are from writers and budding writes who dream of writing the greatest A to Z of fairy tales, although they cant because I am, but I do find it interesting that given the day off they don’t then write anything on their blogs or attempt to draw a guillemot as one IDIOT will be a bit later. I am also doing my bit an trying to visit as many of the other blogs as I can without going gaga and so far have looked at a whole 363 blogs (mum has said IDIOT again).
OK I am off to paint straight lines again now, did you know guillemots don’t have straight lines although they do fly in straight lines. When I say fly in straight lines I do not mean they are in a straight line and flying, I refer to the way they fly, it would form a straight line if someone followed them with a pencil and joined up the dots so to speak…….
