Why am I doing the A to Z in April. . . . . The Big Question
Some of you will have noticed that I volunteered to support the A to Z again in April, that rather interesting event that many many bloggers undertake which scrambles the minds of huge numbers of people. This means at some point I will be adding myself to the A to Z list, something I have not done yet because, I like to be well down the list among new faces. This allows me to visit those blogs around me on the list and shrug my shoulders and write stuff like . . . . . WHAT. . WHO . . . I am well confused what’s going on . . . and what letter comes after P. Folk will then respond with helpful tips and say things like. . .No NO you are doing it like you have done it many times before I’m well impressed even if your spelling is rubbish. Then when they discover I have done it loads of times before they get in a strop and refuse to talk to me.
Now this year is a bit of a worry because I am doing stuff in the house like painting, bashing walls down, more painting, moving furniture, even more painting and wondering what to do with all my stuff. . . . . . I have a lot of stuff, a man needs stuff its genetic and I have loads of it. So doing the A to Z on top is probably very fool hardy even for an old hand like myself, but I have a plan and if it comes off I will be OK you see I have chosen a fairly easy subject this year and that is. . . .
The A to Z of Completely Fictitious Unknown Victorian Failed Inventors and Explorers
I will say that I don’t think this is a subject I have done before, but I am now at the point I can’t remember exactly what I have done previously and it did cross my mind to do. . . . . The A to Z of the Best Bits from the A to Z of Rob Z Tobor which would allow me to just repost a mix of stuff I have done before. However I might save that for next year and the year after.
Now if you are thinking Ooooooooo I am going to do the A to Z as well just remember it is harder than it looks if you don’t blog every day. And it does not mean you will suddenly have hundreds of new followers who will lavish praise on you as the new wonder blogger. Blogging is not an easy route to fame and fortune, I have been stalking that very nice Steven Spielberg for what seems like years now and has he ever said . . . . Hey rob that is the best film idea I have ever read. . . . No. Although he has said AAAaaaaauuuuGgggHHH god its you again, set the dogs on him and call the police. . . .Again. I like to think we are at least talking and I have my foot in the door, although he has sent me the repair bill for the door and it seems a lot. . . . PHEW.
Anyway if you wish to do the A to Z . . here is the link to the sign up list. But give it serious thought first.
If you are wondering what sort of thing to write about in the A to Z here is a little example from one I have done before . . . . An Old Favourite and better still short
“VHAT do you VANT” said the VAMPIRE to the VOLE.
“What”? Said VICTOR the VOLE.
“For a start off those are not V words” said VICTOR.
Victor the VOLE was very good at words and knew all his VERBS and VOWELS.
The VAMPIRE was very displeased because he was being criticized by a little VOLE and he shouted “I VILL bite VOU and VURN VOU into a VOMBIE, VES a VILE VITTLE VOMBIE”.
“A VOMBIE “ said the VOLE “surely you mean a Zombie”.
“VOMBIE VOMBIE VATS VHOT I VED” said the VAMPIRE, who was VERY angry; so angry he bit VICTOR the VOLE on the neck.
“I VARNED VOO” said the VAMPIRE.
And VICTOR the VOLE said “I suppose you VINK that’s VUNNY”.
And they both laughed hysterically as a cow jumped over the VOON.

Well because I am MAD. . . . HAH AH HA Hah ah ah ahah ha ha ha ha ha hah ahah ha hah ahh ah ah ah ha ha ha hah ah a ha haha hahahha ha ha ha
