Now I’m Really Back

26 Oct

Apartheid’s All Right If You’re White is now at Second Draft status and I am at Desperately Needing A Break status, especially if I don’t want to develop Deep Vein Thrombosis.

I have been sitting at the computer for three days straight.  Well, not straight so much as hunched over, knees in my chin because there’s no space under the desk for my legs and perched on the edge of a chair that is either too low or too high but I’m not quite sure which but I do know it’s uncomfortable.

But it was worth it!  My book is looking good, like it might actually be a real book one day.  This is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done – and I’ve flown in aeroplanes at least twenty times.

You don’t define flying as ‘exciting’?  ‘Exciting’ for me means ‘an absolutely terrifying experience but worth the effort because of what comes at the end.’  How do you define it?

So here I am, back.  I have read all of your comments that you continued to make in my absence.  It must be like when I talk to the Hub.

Thank you for not deserting me.  Unfortunately, there’s no way I can catch up with all of them and do normal things like eat and sleep, so I will apologise right now:

Sorry, I won’t be replying to your comments.  There’s no way I can catch up with all of them  and do normal things like eat and sleep.

I do promise to visit you all, however, and not catch up on all the posts I’ve missed.  I can’t say fairer than that.

What?  We don’t have the same definition of ‘fair’, either?  Leave a complaint in the comments.

My mate swallowed a cordless vacuum cleaner.

I took him to hospital and he is picking up nicely.
