This weeks funny self-service story...
I was wandering past a customer the other day who was about to pay for his book/cd combo on the fancy self-service kiosks, he had a fiver squashed up very tightly in his hand.
In an attempt at being helpful i mentioned to him that the kiosk wouldn't accept the note unless it was flat and uncreased... He barked at me very rudely "What Do You Want Me To Do ? - Iron It...?!?
I calmly replied that I was simply making him aware that this may cause a problem with his transaction, as I walked away I glanced at his items and spied... "Dealing With Anger Issues" book/cd
lol...

Don't think there will be a TTT sequel Carlo... I appear to be a one book man.

:o)

ha@ Willie. That's funny. There's a tiny tale in that alone.

Hey, well all think there's only one book in us - and then we write another. Why not give a full length a try, or maybe a novella?

Great game for Crewe yesterday. What a season :)

'full length' ! are you bonkers Carlo ! it takes me all my time to write terribly short stories... it's all that punctuation and spelling bother does me bonce in big style.
Stories visit me like little lightning flashes - i would get electrocuted if i had to do an epic one !

:o)

long short stories and lightning - very, very, frightening !

Hey, to quote Robert Browning :

"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp -- or what's a heaven for?"

Ha@Willie. I'll see what I can do. Frankly, however, I think there is more chance of Middleport taking over Chelsea as the most desirable place to live in England. I'd love to know how you find TH2 :)

Middleport is much nicer since they knocked most of it down Carlo... it is almost panoramic now by the roundabout, if Westport got hit by a tsunami it would be like the seaside !

Ha@Willie. That T-shirt is sooo cool. It's a shame Stokie Robbie didn't wear one at the Jubilee concert :)

Hey, you and me both. I haven't eaten one sausage roll, waved a single union jack, feasted on a scone, or listened to a Elton John track.

I do believe I'll watch the footie, though. :)

Hi Carl, Willie and Fi esta.
Well, Willie what the heck is Fi esta waiting for? :)

Carl, long time no chat... trust and hope that all is well with your sweet self and loved ones..
Alice must really be giving you a little "back chat" by now, bless her.
Carl, how far are you with the Time Hunters 3? ... looks like I'm going to start cracking the whip all over again!
My regards to Crewe; I quite like it, hopefully may pay a little visit this Thursday or next.
Take care et a bientot, mon cher ami,
Amities,
Caain x

Hello again Caain, I was waiting for someone else to arrive, but no one did, :>(

I've woken up at silly O'clock, and guess what? I've missed the conversation...

Hi Carl,

Just popped around to see how you're doing.
Missed you since that other thread went missing.

A question - have you experienced a marked difference in European sales of paperbacks since they started distributing them locally? I have and I'm over the moon. The thought of my books on someone else's bookshelf makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :-)
