Avid readers, devoted followers, loyal subjects I wish to announce that I am back at home in my world of cabbages, slugs, and writing and soon, very soon, a new book will be released. There should be two but things have been moving slowly ever since Steve the Slug died. The new book is a book of rhymes that will delight, horrify, make you puke, split your sides and question my sanity. I'm already questioning my sanity as a matter of fact. Unfortunately, my sanity hasn't been answering my calls. The book of rhymes is entitled, 'Elias Zapple's Rhymes from the Cabbage Patch'. I shall keep you all updated as soon as I have a publication date. Keep throwing the cabbage!
Thinking of purchasing a Kindle or a Tablet for your little sprogs? Then take a look at this blog by fellow author, D M Potter who discusses the pros and cons of each.
Went for a meal this evening with Bert the Slug. Bert obviously had to be hidden in my pocket otherwise we wouldn't have been allowed into the restaurant. I tried numerous times to coax him out but he refused believing that if he were visible then the staff and the patrons would throw a fit.
So, I ordered food for two looking like a real greedy guts and appearing to be a rather sad individual. I had to stealthily feed Bert his morsels, carefully putting bits and pieces of food into my pocket for him to eat.
Anyhoo, I got to the shrimp tempura when I was given a rather strange reddish-looking sauce to dip the tempura into. I did so and was revolted. I exclaimed, 'this tastes like vomit!' causing all the customers and staff to stare at me. I dipped a crumb into the sauce for Bert to try and he too agreed that the sauce did taste like vomit.
I alerted the waiter who refused to believe me and refused to try it. So naturally I did the only thing I could do which was to go home, get five cabbages then return and hurl them at the restaurant.
My slugs later returned contaminated the batter.
