Aw bollocks it’s the Chaos Fairies! Never mind here’s another gem from McMini.

Multo pissed offo con ultimo gizmo, con action grumpo. I dropped my iPad today and smashed it to bits. Arse, that’ll teach me to eyebomb our garage door with McMini for a laugh and then try to take pictures of it.

Wankpots! Wankpots! Wankpots! Bloody Chaos Fairies.

Needless to say I dropped it from about 3 feet and am almost certain that it was my spanner fingered attempts to catch it that were responsible since they simply involved me batting it up into the air so it went higher up and came down on one corner as opposed to its back. Then again, if these things are the all purpose take everywhere items the makers and adverts would have us believe then maybe they should try making them a bit more sodding robust. Probably.

On the upside, the screen works so I won’t have to spend £110 (urrrgh MT’s knees go a bit wobbly) on a new screen straight away. There’s a shop who’ll fix it quite near and they will do it while you wait (2hrs) and I might even be able to get McOther to pick it up – said shop is about a mile from where he works.

Oh and our garage door looked like Nigel Mansel for a few moments – until I removed the eyes in disgust.

And another positive, I managed to do 35,000 words, or thereabouts for NaNoWriMo, which, considering I wrote nothing at weekends or the week before last and very little last week either is making me feel… smug.

So to cheer us up, another couple of conversations from McMini.

His godfather is recovering from a shoulder up and suggested we draw him a card.

“My shoulder hurted a lot once but once I had got home it went away. He will feel a lot better when he gets home.”

And on the subject of marriage, overheard by his Dad.

“I’m going to marry my Mum when I grow up.”
“You can’t do that,” said McCousin, “your Mum is already married to your Dad.”
“Yeh but he’s old. He’ll die before long and then I’ll marry her.”

I’m not quite sure how to take that.

And this evening as we’re going to bed.

“Eugh! I’ve just smelled my trousers and they smell absolutely stinky.”
“Oh dear, what wee and poo stinky?” 
“No. They smell like fried socks.”

So… a mixed bag.

Oh and if you’re wondering where I’ve been for the last two weeks, well, for the first one I was baking a cake – more on that story, later.

In the second week I was catching up with all the things I was supposed to be doing when I was making the cake instead. Then I was hanging with the in laws and McMini. There’s not much going to happen this week either, phnark but I do hope to get the K’Barthan Trilogy done by Christmas.

  1. Hmm, that must be some cake if it took a whole week to make. Do tell more. Meanwhile, it sounds like you had a good November with NaNoWriMo; 35,00 words, nice going! I hope you reach your goal of finishing the trilogy by Christmas.

    • Not yet, I hope to though… If I ever get time. It’s very close and there is enough to keep the editor busy. As for the cake yeh it was pretty complicated.

      Cheers

  2. Amazing what scribblers get up to – can’t make stuff like that up! Sorry about your phone but ha ha ha haaaaaaa – that’s the funniest thing I’ve read in ages. 😀

  3. Fried socks – what a funny little guy he is! Sorry about the screen but hopefully all will be well soon. Who knew a garage door could be so hilarious! Can’t wait to read Part 3. Happy writing!

  4. You bounced back well from the Chaos Fairies (aka The Nisser in my home)! Congrats on writing so many words too. And thanks for the funnies.
    Best,
    Cynthia.

  5. Feeling your pain in the ipad (have dropped both my ipad and my laptop: with my laptop I broke the keyboard and my big toe!)
    Have to say, though, the photo might just have been worth it! Still chuckling at Nigel Mansel AND eye-bombing. I didn’t know it had a term, but my daughter did it to her wardrobe and it was very funny.
