These updates are getting later and later. I blame the Hub.
When people ask me, ‘Why do you always blame the Hub?’ I think of Sir Edmund Hillary’s famous quote about climbing Everest: ‘Because he’s there.’ What’s the point of marriage, if not to have a spouse to blame? To sum up:
- I’m late; I cry
- Hub/Fall guy
- On standby
- Not my fault I’m late
So, what have I been doing? Not a lot, as it happens: Tory Boy coming home for a while meant that this week Spud and I had to excavate his room of all our junk which put me in a bad mood with the Hub because it’s really his junk and I was happy when I couldn’t see it but now it’s all over the house again and you know how I feel about a cluttered house….
I did add a new task:
Find another 64 challenges for the list. (28/64)
Have the courage to play the drums in church.
There are several bongo drums up front in church and the children are invited to play along to the singing. I thought about grabbing a little kid off the street because parents help the younger ones to bong, but kidnap might not be considered an act of good Christian witness, so I decided against it. I am dying to get my hands on those drums, though. This morning, the children were all in Sunday Club and the vicar invited the adults to have a go, but I bottled it. Like every other adult there, as it happens.
As I cowered behind my notice sheet, I decided right then to add this task to my list, because now I have to do it when the opportunity arises again.
Submit thirty poems to competitions or publishers (11/30)
I sent off three poems this week. I was going to up the number from (8) to (9), because they all went to the same competition, but I checked the wording of the task and it reads Submit thirty poems, not, Submit to thirty competitions. I can always increase the number at a later date. The good thing about setting your own tasks in this challenge is that you can cheat as much as you like.
Blog 1111 times (444/1111)
I only tell you this because I like the numbers.
We now have eighteen members in the 101ers club, and my list to the right is sadly out of date. I will try to update it in the week but for now, here are some links. Mine is only included because I don’t know how else to do ‘Related Articles’. I have a lot to learn about blogging.
