Imagination and Pens

Imagination Gone Wrong!

Well, today has been very relaxing. I spent the majority of the day lying on my bed and reading books, but this isn’t a bad thing because it’s what I like to do. The day started off like any other, it was calm, quiet, and blooming hot!

After I had breakfast, I went across to Tesco because I needed to buy dad a new freeview box. As I was walking across, I noticed that the local market was in full swing, cars and people were everywhere, and there was the usual upbeat noise of the radios blaring from the market speaker system. When I walked across the car park, I noticed there was the usual fight for car spaces, many cars were speeding along, some were blowing their horns, and others didn’t look where they were going. There was an elderly woman trying to cross the road and someone took no notice of this, and they continued to reverse, they only stopped when the elderly woman whacked the back of their car with her stick. Talk about a street fight! She was going to take on a car, she must have secret powers like the hulk. Annoy her enough and she will go green and roar like a tiger! Okay, maybe my imagination stretched there about the hulk, but it was amazingly stupid of the driver, sometimes I wonder how people pass their driving tests!

When I arrived at Tesco, I was in my usual speedy mode, I wanted to get what I needed and get back out again. The first stop I made was to the electrical department to find this freeview box, there were many to choose from, but I only needed a basic one, I didn’t need anything special because dad wouldn’t use any of the extra features. So, with freeview box in hand, I headed back downstairs to look at the books. After five minutes of browsing, I found three books that I wanted, and what made it even better was that they were on a special deal. I always try to get my books on a deal because I only pay on average £2 a book, which in fairness is a good price to pay. The books I normally buy are either crime related or other random ones that catch my eye. As they always say, to sell a book you need a good cover that will appeal and stand out on the shelf. Oh no, I’ve just had another imagination moment! What if a book did jump out at you on a shelf? It would be like ‘Hey buy me. Oi buy me, you know you want to!‘ Then the book tries to jump in your basket! Okay, I’m going too far with all this imagination stuff.

Anyhow, once I paid for the shopping, I headed back to the market and tackled the crowds again. This time it wasn’t so bad, there was the usual crowds, but I quickly found a shortcut and sailed passed everyone. The walk home started to take its toll on me, my legs were aching and the sweat was pouring from me. I can’t understand why this happened, I was only wearing shorts and a T-shirt, so I should have been cool enough. I guess the heat is still in full swing, I’m hoping that it starts to cool down in the next couple of days. Apparently we are meant to be getting rain tomorrow, so I could be in luck, well that’s if the weather report is correct. Knowing my luck, it will probably be wrong, and we will end up with more sun!

So, I was now home and ready to have a nap, but before I could do this, I wanted to read a couple of books for a while. This method worked again, after I read a few chapters, I felt my eyelids going, and once I rested my head on the pillow, I was out like a lightbulb.

I woke up around 5pm, and somehow I regained all my energy. Not long after this, my sister served dinner. We had a lovely curry, it definitely hit the spot, and I ate every mouthful. After I put my plate in the kitchen, I sat in my bedroom watching a bit of TV and trying to decide what to write about in today’s blog.

Anyhow, nothing more happened today, I just spent the rest of the time writing this and reading books on my bed. I hope this imagination amused you all, it will certainly help me later when I write parts of my books. This imagination is normal to me, but to other people they think it’s crazy or even dumb. If trying to be funny is crazy then, I’m completely nuts and off my trolley! So, on that note, its time for me to sign off and retire to my bed. Until the next blog, stay safe and take care.

Pens Hide!

I can’t believe it, I’ve woken up with a sore throat, could this day get any worse? As I sit here trying to write today’s blog, my head is starting to beat like a drum, and my energy is starting drain from me like a leaking tap. After a quick lie down on my bed, it was clear that I had some bug or infection. My body feels like a very hot radiator, and for some reason my feet feel hot, its like a hot feeling shooting up my legs like electricity, this might be just a rush of bloody.

Anyhow, let’s try to get past all this sickness. How about yesterdays blog, how nuts was I? An elderly woman turning into the hulk, and books jumping off shelves for you to buy them, how crazy was that? What does it matter? I guess we all let our imagination run wild at times, mine just turns on when it feels like it, and most of the time it’s when I don’t have a pen handy! I bet all writers have had moments like that, you get an idea and then you realize you don’t have pen to write it down with. It’s like the pens have it in for you, they all hatch a plan to hide when you have a really good idea. Okay, there’s that imagination again, it must be working overdrive because of the sickness.

Anyway, that’s enough from me today. I’m off to cure this sickness and to read some books. So, until the next blog, take care and be safe!

You’re a Nutter, Lovely Meal

Published by:

I am guessing it is going to be a long day, it is now 12:11am and I am wide awake watching the webcams at the haunted house in York that I went to recently. I can certainly say that was an interesting experience, but I will tell you about that at a later date because I want to dedicate a whole blog to it.

Anyway, as I was saying. The time is certainly getting on here and it seems like the weather is getting colder again. I don’t know why it is getting cold, we had beautiful hot sunshine earlier, it was so hot that I could walk around with my top off, glad the neighbors didn’t see because they would have got a shock! I mean walking around with no boxers on is enough to scare anyone, I bet your all thinking you dirty bugger, don’t worry I didn’t do it really, but wouldn’t it be hilarious if I did? Okay, you all have mental image didn’t need, job done! Now, look what I have done! I have scared you for life, oh well, at least I will be in your thoughts, just promise me one thing though, no stalkers!

So, it turns out that I get very funny when I get tired. As I look back at what I just wrote, I am thinking are you nuts? The short answer to that is yes, but in my own defense, crazy is the new normal, it makes life more fun, don’t you agree? I bet you all just answered no to that question, and I even bet some of you rolled your eyes in disgust and called me an idiot.

I have just realized something funny, it feels like I am having a conversation with someone, but I am on my own in the dinning room, how weird is that? I think this is a sign, and it says you’re a complete nutcase. I once passed a sign on the motorway saying nutcase’s this way, I just thought it was the chocolate factory, but I guess I was the nut they were looking for. Anyway, before I get myself in trouble, I am off to sleep, well try to at least.

After many went by, I finally had some sleep, okay it was at 7am, but at least I had some sleep. Anyway, today was reasonably hot, I regret wearing my coat because I was sweating like a pig. I won’t complain though because it means more warmer days are ahead, and it also means we will get a hotter summer.

I am going to skip ahead a few hours, you will understand why I want to do this later. We all went to my sisters (Cassie) for dinner today, it was a lovely meal, I certainly enjoyed it. My sister made sausage casserole, mash, vegetables, and for afters we had chocolate cake & cream. I ate everything, including extra’s. I am beyond stuffed, I had a McFlurry after we left my sisters, and I regret eating it because I feel stuffed & sick!

Anyway guys & gals, I am going to sign off now, I am beyond stuffed and I feel like I am going to throw up.

Until tomorrow,

Marc.
