That was a surprise!
National Novel Writing Month (Photo credit: Steve Rhodes)
As you know, I signed up for Nano to prove to the Hub that I don’t have a novel in me. I started two hours ago with the first line in my head and a vague idea of what it might possibly be maybe perhaps about.
1749 words later, which I found surprisingly easy to write, I have four definite characters, a rough plot outline, a mini-cliffhanger ending to the first chapter, and a smug Hub saying, ‘I told you you could do it.’
The story so far: A deserted mother; two spoiled children; one chaotic day.
I can’t tell you any more because I don’t know what happens next. But I can’t wait to find out!
I hate it when the Hub is right.
I hate it when he’s right and it’s to my benefit.
I wonder if I should add a murder?
It’s that time of the month – here are the searches that found my blog in October:
Searches are the only times I love grammar (grammatical?) and spelling errors

- tour the france accidents
- why dont americans like electic kettles
- plumber onliners
I’d like one of those
- bearhug in sweden
- dobermans backside
I know that feeling
We’re better behaved than that
It’s all about the emphasis
I despair of education today
- what sounds does owl makes
- ugly yorkie puppies
- im still mad at you wife
That’s a strange place to get one
The weirdos are back
- i saw the ghost of gloria gaynor standing at the foot of my bed
- australian and nudist and tumblr
- poo humour poems
- male stripper running credit card thru butt
- vamps by love in deaths arms
I thought I had a morbid sense of humour
- funny heart attack cartoons
- cartoon cooking children and parents
- a labled easy to follow leg

The pickings are feeble so it’s time for a poem.
Last month, Bluebee invited her readers to make poems from searches. She posted my first attempt here. Be warned: there’s a lot of hair.
I enjoyed the exercise so much, I’ve had another go. You should try it!
Here is today’s poem:
why dont americans like electic kettles
i saw the ghost of gloria gaynor standing at the foot of my bed
a labled easy to follow leg
fat moped girl my butt is big
bearhug in sweden man with bump in head

I enjoyed those one-liners* the other day so much, I treat you to some more, courtesy of Tim Vine, via the Telegraph.
- Exit signs? They’re on the way out!
- Eric Bristow asked me why I put superglue on one of his darts. I said, ‘You just can’t let it go, can you?’
- I saw this advert in a window that said, “Television for sale, £1, volume stuck on full.” I thought, ‘I can’t turn that down.’
- Do you ever get that when you’re halfway through eating a horse and you think to yourself, ‘I’m not as hungry as I thought I was’?
- Velcro? What a rip-off!
