Singing On The Edge Of Sun.

CaptainPigheart6I are going bonkizz. I’m writing this while at work, during a brief gap between crises. Sadly this will necessarily be rather abbreviated – apologies. The last couple of weeks have been a struggle to get stuff written, but it looks like this week is about to kick those experiences in the nuts. For reference, it’s 10 past 5 on Sunday afternoon and I’ve been here since before 8 this morning. This is not a good Sunday. Update – I left at 7pm in the end. Not a victorious day…

It’s an awesome week ahead though – MissImp in Action on Friday at The Glee Club and The Furthest From The Sea Festival on Saturday in which I’m hitting the comedy stage in character and out, as well as providing free improv workshops.

♥ This week’s scribbles

Tuesday Gigs Ahead: Furthest From The Sea Festival Sat 29th June

An amazing array of acts and free entertainment this Saturday in Derby.

Wednesday Autofiction: Anxiety Games

The downright weird experience of feeling unreasonably anxious.

Thursday The Desert Crystals – The Journals Biologinary #3

A third zoological interlude – the Tooth Furred Gambimole.

Friday Lego Blog: Lego Memories 

A flashback to my Legoline joy of the 19’80s.

Updates on my thrilling life


Oosh, long week; little writing. I’ve written a couple of bobs this week, but they’re no longer suitable for posting – very frustrating! The review I wrote of After Earth seems to have gone down quite well with a nice re-blog by BMJ2K – thanks dude! In case you were wondering – it is a terrible film. It’s nice to let of some steam on a thoroughly deserving subject. The Journals Biologinary are amusing me greatly, though I’m looking forwards to getting back into the main story next week.

Saw Droid 3Last week’s scribbles


Sadly little to report this week. I’ve barely begun sorting the tonne of Lego I brought back from my Dad’s last week – a bit more about that on Friday I think. I did reward myself for a long week with the Attack on Weathertop Lego set. It’s a clever little build, especially the curving castle wall. Lots of fun to make, and I do love the new rearing horsies.

Improv Comedy

It was the penultimate beginners’ session last Monday and we had a very cool time. The gang are becoming very sharp and growing satisfyingly in confidence. I’m not sure what I’ll do on Mondays in future… Also a superb jam on Thursday from our youngest performer, wee Ben. The very interesting mix of MissImpers gave some wonderful group scene work and great hilarity.

Media Intake


Well, as with everything else there has been no time. Sad faces everywhere. I have dug into Stephen Hunt’s next Jackelian adventure – yet more bonkers but brilliant steampunk in Jack Cloudie. We’re off in airships against the Dune Tleilaxu-like Cassarabians. It’s very exciting and I hope to finish it this week.
