I might even get into the habit of doing these drabbles, they're like sudoku for writers.

I love killer sudoku especially designing my own, somewhere on this forum there's a 12 sudoku's of Xmas I posted for Batty.

As for tinkering and being a writer, I'm not the latter, so don't have problems with the former. 8-)

BTW in your avi it says "Land of Sea and Granite." How can a land be a sea? :? :lol:

To go nerdy the Dothraki Sea in A Song Of Ice and Fire is land :dance: :dance:

...which also isn't Guernsey! :roll:

For the record, if you include any smileys or write in a different colour in your stories, it won't be posted. Black or Black only! :dance:

The above comment about black only was a fib! I thought I'd have to put all the colour bits in myself, then realised if I clicked on "quote" I could get all the colour codes. :P

Just posted #31 (in colour) & 32

If you are being literal, then what about the Land of the Rising Sun?? Image


One of the drabbles mentioned that Scorpio is an animal of the Spider family. Really? Scorpio is a water sign.

If you assume Greenwich to be the centre for longitude and Japan is in the "Far East", then the sun rises in Japan. 8-)

Definitely are arachnids and they do have 8 legs, as do ticks and mites who're also in the same class. It's thought that scorpions did evolve in the oceans (they do look similar to lobsters if you think about it ;) ) and are Arthrapods like them and crabs and, back in the fossil records, trilobites. They all have jointed legs in common with spiders who're obviously the most well-known archnids :ugeek:

It's definitely a land of sea Pooh, some things go beyond logical inconsistencies.
It's all about the sun master, white snow and red blood and the sun. Always has been.
