Guilty pleasures, what does that mean to me? smiley - erm

Writing while my house gets ever more untidy, until you'll have to climb over boxes and dead vacuum cleaners to find me sitting at my computersmiley - erm?

Reading easy-read novels (I'm a Terry Pratchett fan)rather than serious literary fiction. CC, I don't think the film of Chocolat is as good as the book.

I wonder if some literary fiction is over-rated. I started reading 'A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing' by Eimear McBride and found the bizarre style (it's written in fragments - odd words and phrases rather than sentences) so difficult to follow I decided I couldn't be bothered.

To make a good book you need a strong story, some interesting characters and detailed enough settings to make the fiction seem real.

That's my rant for the day. Perhaps I should join Peanut picking sloes. There are certainly lots about this year.

Ho hum (wanders in) Ooooh lots of loveliness and peoples. Evening all!

Welcome, lovely messenger from Create, who doth seek out our guilty pleasures, and maketh me blush, even though I know not why, just trying to sound guilty, not that convincing, not even if I say doth for effect.

Hope you have a deep sleep tonight, ITI, after your day on the road. Is it emotionally taxing when you visit your Mum? I hope you're OK.

Back in a minute. I had some pathways to share with you, but I lost them. Where are my pathways?

Here they are, not sure if the link will work. I like these pathways. If I had taken a pathway piccie like these, my work would be done. I'd retire and hang upside down in a tree like a lemur, eating toffee apple smileys smiley - toffeeapplesmiley - toffeeapplesmiley - toffeeapple and listening to Radiohead on giant headphones. That thought doth bring me great guilty pleasure.

I did take a photo today of some giant discarded plastic burgers, with plastic lettuce, beside a green wheelie bin, in a commercial yard place, beside a food market. They must have been a sort of display, for a burger stall.

But this has nothing to do with pathways. Here are my pathways.

Hmm, guilty pleasure. I like taking photos of giant plastic burgers. I almost prefer them to pathways. Oh no, maybe I don't. Yes I do. I think I will wrestle with my conscience. I like a bit of wrestling. Uh oh, don't mention wrestling. What??? This is all Create's fault. smiley - rofl

The recipe for Perculiar tea??? Hah! You want the recipe? I will offer it to you if you are nice to me for twenty seven years, or if you translate Maria's mysterious Spanish sentence for me. Except I don't know it, so first I will have to go hypnotise Peanut.
