All my troubles seemed so far away

After a restless and all too brief night’s sleep I was woken by my alarm at 5:30am with the clearest view of the first page of a book in my head. It began:

Paul McCartney wakes up with “Yesterday” fully formed in his head, and all I get this? How is that fair? I don’t even write fantasy.

Ah! But do you live it, Herr Schweinkotflügel? Do you live it? :open_mouth:

That would work quite well in most any genre. You might be a bit tongue-in-cheek about it in our modern world, but historically, it didn’t have a practical use, other than a material used in currency and ornamentation. Not that I can think of, anyway.

I woke up and totally forgot what was in my head. (Like when you go to the kitchen and you forgot what came in to get).

So I went back to sleep to try to remember and overslept.

I never remembered what it was But I do remember it was the best thing I ever thought of. Kinda of like Tenacious D’s Tribute Song

Sadly, no.

If my life was a book genre it would be a… well a biography I suppose. But thinking less literally and more literary, probably a thriller. Only without the peril.

What I need is a good archenemy or a nemesis.

Disappointed you didn’t transcribe the ‘skats’.

It could be worse. Your life could be classified in the “how to” or “self improvement” sections. The titles for mine would be
• How to make bad decisions: A study of a life full of them.
• Become a better you by not being this guy!

If you really need a nemesis I would suggest Fluff.

Fluff already has a nemesis and will not be available to fill this position.


You really need to focus on being the best (most heinous) nemesis to your owners. With a name like that few will take you seriously.

pf, you could always try to be your own nemesis:

Roger Moore’s best movie, by the way (which actually says a little more for the movie than you might think…).

Monsieur Cochonailes,

I am…how you say, open to offerrrs…oui?
Le D :smiling_imp:

Don’t we have enough of that with vic-k?

Ah! Floss, welcome aboard Scrivener. The more kitties we have on board, the better. Rodent, proliferation is becoming problematic (along with the odd pigeon), as is human proliferation, too.

Nemesis, you say. Vic-k is an embarrassment, an encumbrance, an irritant, a slovenly sloppy slob, but…nemesis? No, I don’t think so, Floss.

Should you be referring to another (human or otherwise), I have to point out that I’m really not all sweetness and light, as many may believe. I do have my darker side:

Do, take care, Floss.

Fluff and Floss I want to tell you the story of the stuttering cat.

You owe me a computer cleaning and a fresh soda.

See what I mean, Floss, about the odd pigeon.
Fluff :frowning:

I didn’t know pigeons could type. Maybe it’s a Tennessee thing.


You do remember that Google used pigeon to get better search results don’t you?

I did not know this, but have independently verified. It must be true as the webpage telling me all about it was in colour.

As a pigeon racer I can tell you that many folks underestimate the humble family of columbidae. Ours will fly over 600 min less than 10 hours. Many races have average speeds over 50mph (some are much higher).

That said, Google took one look at Wock and did the same thing the rest of us tried. But he just keeps coming back to crap on the sidewalk.
