Shelf-stacker at the Tesco's Batty's going to? With your long legs you'd be great at that :lol:

Beware of short fat bot-ladies in dark glasses though! :shock: :twisted:

It starts with Capt PC waking up with a hangover because he'd been drinking with two other Time Cops the night before - Capt Who's Wee Dug and Capt Sjoerd. :lol:

Aren't you afraid of getting lost in time? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuFOoYlqMKw Not in this sense, of course, but I just thought about this...

What's that you're saying about my breats? :P

I have to write 90 000 words by December 31st. But if it's a work of fiction I'll be in trouble!
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Sorry, Pooh, but this was the exact plot used eight years ago on episode 7HH45PF of "Futurama."

Too bad, really. I was looking forward to being the evil genius. The furthest I ever got to in real life was "annoying, somewhat nasty duffer" and it was all plateau after that.

Don't you mean "decent-sized novel" as opposed to "decent novel?" Key word here is 'quality.' It took me a year and a half to write my last novel and another four months to edit it. Fortunately, it (and the other one) are safely locked away on CD-ROMS in my safe deposit box, where they pose no danger of being exposed to the public at large. The literary world breathes a sigh of relief.

Whether you could actually sit down and read it depends on your own ability and the reader's tolerance for hastily scrawled trash... :P
