Sounds like me. I'm producing gallons of... slime. There seems to be no end of it. Don't know where it all comes from. But what are squits? Never heard that one. We have squirts here, but that's something else altogether.  grin

Hope your pal who took the fall is okay.

Squits, squirts, shits -- that thing where you can't get more than twenty yards from a toilet without having a panic attack afro

I hope you're feeling better soon.

I was in a hurry coming out of Sainsburys yesterday so ran a little. I heard running behind me (they might have shouted but I'm hard of hearing) so I ran faster. They caught up and stopped me. Two Police Communitiy OFficers demanded to go through my two carrier bags and asked why I was running. I said I didn't want to leave my wife on her own with grandson in the park too long. They found my receipts among the gingerbread men, fruit and newspapers and let me go. Then I had to explain to wife why I was late...

Never a dull day for Nelder.

Lucky the police didn't know your codename is Bikoman!

I can see it now, Geoff pedalling furiously away from the CSO's whilst reaching into his Tesco carrier bag and pulling out satsumas and peaches and lobbing them back onto the road, making his pursuers swerve and brake, and as he tires (tyres?) and one of the fit young ones (probably a keen gym goer) pulls alongside, Geoff swats him in the eye with a gingerbread man and evades capture, hardly out of breath, with just the newspaper requiring a quick going over with a warm iron to make everything hunky dory.

See, you're lucky those CSOs don't carry tazers, Geoff. You might have a perm by now afro

Good point. Didn't think of that. Maybe being Manchester they don't carry them in case they get robbed Wink

I teach guitar to a policeman's son. Monday night the policeman was telling me that this week was the first time he'd been involved in a tazering. His partner did the tazering whilst the chap I know tried to persuade the lad (who 'was being a bit silly') to calm down. There were a couple of things I wasn't aware of. It's all stored away in Del's head ready for fictional use....

Really pleased to have finished the first draft of my novel today. It still needs a lot of work, but I’m happy with it, and proud to have actually stuck with it through 65,000w.

I’m not going to think about the next stage for a while. hiding

We have a news documentary show in the U.S. called 60 Minutes, they did a piece on Tasers the other week. Among other things, I learned that TASER is actually an acronym created by the inventor in honor of his childhood hero, and stands for Thomas A. Swift's Electric Rifle.

Yes, congratulations, indeed, Rook!

A few years ago I wrote almost 65,000 words of a novel. Unfortunately, the story was only about 75% complete at that point, and I lost momentum and the project died. I even knew how it was supposed to end, which is my usual problem, but I just couldn't bring the pieces together. Maybe someday...
