    So kind and polite of you both for asking

    So since I can't stand more artistic writing places I wanted somewhere to dabble on my various little poems, short stories and anything else I get inspired to do creatively, might as well come back here since I have fond memories of the old poetry contests (even if my picks weren't too popular ). I'll open the topic with one of my favourites. I always enjoy writing "to demand" to see what sort of things people throw in the air and one of those came through this forum where someone wanted me to write a poem about a flugelhorn playing cat... So here it is! Mittens the Flugelkitten. Those cats are a funny breed Just going round spreading seeds Thus the reason they’re all spayed Very few instruments played But then there’s little Mittens Smarter than most kittens Once shy and twice bitten The worlds first flugelkitten She’ll stalk around often tooting Often receiving flying booting But that don’t stop her music That little furry lunatic While most cats lick their paws Fighting territorial wars She won’t sniff feline bums She’ll play her little drums You no doubt think that’s all perchance? I’m sorry but no, not a chance Jump on walls with perfect footing Banging, meowing and tooting She’ll play in any old garden A musical feline bin Laden She’ll play without recompense Playing balanced on a fence I’m towards the end of the tail With gags beyond the pale Some rhymes were close to forced But at least it’s not too coarse!

    The Ladies' Topic

    Agreed, walking in heels is easy. Only worn them a few times but found myself dancing with no problems by the end. Which is especially impressive since I can't dance without heels anyway.

    What are you watching?

    Then you're both better off scrapping around and watching something else then as it misses all of the above. Although I like Lass' suggestion Bosworth Field wasn't Fought between Henry Tudor and the original Tricky Dicky

    What are you watching?

    Quite right, thus specifying season one as that season is the one with more grounding in reality it's probably the best one to watch if you've a passing interest in history and the War of the Roses period. I'm sure there'll be a decent drama depicting the events since it's such an interesting period but right now all we've got is a couple of fantasy shows. <_<

    Better off with Game of Thrones season one. Less fantasy than TWQ and more accurate at depicting the events.

    What are you reading now?

    Some of the latest Pratchett books are very depressive and social oreinted. Reaper man (especially Death storyline), Hogfather, Night watch, Nation (not Discworld but one of the best Pratchett books) , at some point Thud (well, most of the city watch series)... I think this tendency in his writing is connected with his illnes (you know he has Altzheimer) I wouldn't say it's really connected, it's always been in his work and if anything he's got more... at ease(?) with death and the side effects as he's come to terms with his illness and his suicide when the time comes. You have however reminded me it is way too long since I read Night Watch, currently close to finishing Men At Arms on my reread through the series to get ready for The Iron Hippo in October, though I'm looking at directing Maskerade soon so that might hold me up even longer!

    What are you playing now?

    In the event you told me I could buy a next gen console at a cost that will likely end up being sub £300 I'd have thought you were taking the Michael so that alone is a big selling point. Add in that Sony have listened to what people have been saying and given what we want, some decent looking games and that's that preordered. There's talk you'd need to have PS+ to play online but really PS+ is a bargain so no worries with that either.

    Eurovision 2013

    Most times when we see neighbour/political voting it is just people voting themselves. A lot o the time it'll be Turks, who live in Germany voting Turkey as the easiest example. It's natural and to be expected, Ireland and the UK have sent so many bad songs it's not worth voting ourselves anymore though . I do think it'll be better balanced now you've got the judge vote but on that one it does open up to the other type of voting patterns. Most notably bribing officials is a standard. Still though most times the "best" song will still come out unscathed. It is always entertaining however when people cry corruption when these nations loathe eachother.

    Eurovision 2013

    Top half not much different from expectations, I had Bonnie in 20th so angry at her over achieving <_< Regarding Greece - It was the only fun song in the final and near the end so was always going to go well. It wasn't going to win but the top half a dozen was a good shout.

    Eurovision 2013

    Norway decent shout. Once Denmark became unbackable they were the only people really making moves. Hilariously the German song has got shorter since people decided to "sabotage" it by trying to bring Cascadas playboy shoot to people's attention, obviously people prefer her without clothes on!

    Eurovision 2013

    So basically people are expecting a landslide win for Denmark at the moment with Norway leading the pack. Spain, Lithuania and France leading the way for nil points. Interesting to see if there's any change over the next 30 hours on that but basically people think the only way Denmark won't win is if there's a power cut during their song.

    Contacting the Mods

    IN short, you never discussed it. Look, you got a new mod, she was over excited and tried to get noticed by going by "THE LAW" which meant doing some actions which actually were not against said law but it was done with good intentions. Let's be honest Zomg is just a random noise, unless in this case Em has major issues with Zimbabwe which doesn't work within context. Banning a letter from the alphabet wasn't required. I have to say it's a crap decision.* NB - Crap is acceptable as per discussions with the admins when one wanted to use the synonym which began with an s (abbrev allowed? citation needed). It was decided it could be toned down accordingly to comply with said rulings.
