Semi Colonic


We’ve all heard of the phrase hoist by your own petard, but now it seems there’s a new saying in town: silenced by your own bowel bar post.


I’ve had several cracks at a follow-up (and no, that’s not intended to be an intestinal pun) — most notably an aborted celebration of the moose species, which sadly ended up petarded atop its own grammatically horrific antlers — but since then (and this is an intestinal pun on its way folks...), nothing has come gushing down the sluice pipe of my creativity.

All of which means that I have very little to report other than the gurglings of my own stymied post-colonic mockery-addled malaise.

Which, naturally, you don’t want to hear about.

In view of the fact I'm booked in for a colonoscopy in the near future, I shall pass by this post quickly...

Sounds like a good plan.

Whirl, just eat more greens. This too shall pass. :)

Fruit smoothies with yogurt, honey. They do wonders for your creativity and ah, health. Trust me on this.

Ok, broccoli and brussels sprout soup it is. Should sort everything out down under.

And here was me thinking a yoghurt was a fruit smoothie...

Better than being ...er...stewed in your own juice....

...and I was looking for a post on the proper use of the semi-colon...
I shall continue to bung them in anywhere then;

Call me psychic — but have you had experience of deep sea diving?

Scarlet
What? There's a proper use of the semicolon?

Well, I have a report to give ya, and it has nothing to do with bowels or petards (what the hell are they??).

I almost jumped out of my chair when I popped on here, because it's the first time I realized you had music playing! Normally, my sound is muted. HAs it always been thus, Whirlster?

Whirlochre said...

The musis is a fairly recent addition and only pops up when you scroll down to the player.

Originally, it was set to MUTE so as not to be a distraction, but I can't seem to reconfigure that.

If it gets annoying, I'll take it off.

Robin S. said...

Nope - it wasn't annoying, just surprising!

Whirlochre said...

Like the blog equivalent of a whoopee cushion, then...

writtenwyrdd said...

Broccoli and Brussels sprouts are indeed MY favorite veggies. Honest. How did you know?

Robin S. said...

Whoopee!!

Thanks for stopping by, you three magnificos.

The squeak of the virtual door as you peep in on my gay world is a joy to hear — especially as it often heralds the onset of many frenetic Geoff On The Prowl moments.
