Three things of note occurred yesterday.

1) Tink decided to talk to me again, after we fell out over her walking around with a small bird in her mouth.

She then promptly went and caught a small mouse.

What does she think she is? A cat or something?

2) I ran in the 'Mum's race' at Oz's sportsday.

I was barefoot - realised I was clearly unprepared when I saw the serious contenders in trainers and taking a 'proper' starters line stance. When the race started I got elbowed in the face by a proper 'runner' and nearly stopped, in astonishment. But I ran. I did not fall over. I did not finish last (in fact I was faster than my roll-uphabbit might lead people to believe).

I only ran cos Oz asked me to. When I asked if he was happy I'd run he didn't believe that I was in it as he hadn't seen me. Had to get one of his friends to 'prove' it. I'd even removed my faux fur leopard print coat so that I didn't show him up, and he didn't see me, let alone cheer...

Next year, I'm going to win. So 'deal with it' all triainer-wearing-elbow-pushers.

3) I finished Act One.

This last point is clearly the only one of real significance. However, it does lead to...


Act Two.

That tink is scary when she is in hunter mode, just like her keeper

Woo-hoo! I just wrote the first scene.

It's only 380 words.


Actually, never mind. This script-writing thing's really quite fun :)

petink - yes, but we are sweet the rest of the time. And she is my keeper - I hope.

OPC - Yay!

[goes back to script to find the 'fun' bit...]

Well, ok, if you're writing comedy, and haven't got very far yet, maybe it's kind of fun... :)

OK, now it's not so fun. Turns out God can be a right argumentative bastard. And will he shut up? Hmph. Or is it just that I have so many things I want to harangue him about? Hmm...

Anyway, just wanted to say, you're absolutely right about scriptland. It's a very odd place to be.
