We can still come through

You know how, in peoples eyes, that librarians are a dull bunch of people, who never do anything exciting in their lives, or anything? Well, maybe in this modern world, that is the way they carry on, though I doubt it. But in fictional stories set in the past, librarians can be pretty crazy people. Well, one can at least, some crazy lady named Lemma.

http://192.155.80.152/LemmaTheLibrarian/index.html

I will point out this isnt my normal short, one chapter story that I’m posting about here, this has just completed after Chapter 20, and some of those chapters are quite lengthy, so be warned before digging in, but Lemma, and her cohorts make for an entertaining crowd. Dull librarian, no, she isnt!

In truth, this story isnt just about Lemma, and the books she has to collect, for good reason, its about the sidekicks that surround her, especially one, a guy named Iason. Put it this way, he’s the one that ends up getting Lemma out of most of the scrapes, and holes she drops herself into, and without him, she would have been a mind controlled slave, or supper for a dragon a long time ago!

So why write about it now? Well, as far as the EMCSA is concerned at least, she’s come to the end of her tasks, and the end of the road. Strictly she has to get safely home yet, but seemingly thats only in ebook branding, and I barely have enough money to live life, and time for reading anything else, so not going to happen. Great shame, but such is life. Again, maybe another reason for not getting too involved? So what I would suggest, maybe pick a chapter, or 2 at random, hope you pick a good one (wont be hard), and have a good laugh at her misadventures.

So what can I say, Lemma, and the author, Midori Konton (not her real name, but anyway), other than thanks for the incredible, and sometimes insane journey, I’m going to miss you.

Video time, what Iason did so many times for Lemma, though at the end, maybe the roles were reversed? Oh for the guys, the relatively modern day chorines.

Its fair to say that in my life, along with all the boringly sensible stuff I’ve done, I’ve done a few crazy things too! Most of those I’d be inclined to blame on acting roles, singing in a tribute band (when I was a teen), though I certainly couldnt use that as an excuse for everything, being honest. No, I’m not telling you some of them, I’d hate to shock some who think they know me well, and I’d hate to bore some of those who do know them, and would just say so what?

But one thing I’ve always done when doing ‘spectacular’ roles, or dressing up exercises, is to always wear clothes! And now, lets face it, anyone that would get excited by seeing me in the buff, well, you’d be crazy to do that, in truth! Believe me, I’m 60, and there are bits you’re better off not seeing! But anyway…

One of those things that has always fascinated me over the years, is the body painting thing. You know, as in painted to look like you’re wearing clothing, or an outfit, or if I was really lucky, an all silvered robot! No, I’ve never done it, never going to now, but I’ve always wondered what it was like to be painted like that?

Does it feel strange being painted? Does it feel like you’re naked, or clothed once completed? And other silly questions like those! Anyway, I guess now, I have more chance of dancing in a chorus line, like Clara Johnson did, than of modelling just wearing body paint! And given the former is minuscule, you get my drift? 😉

But yes, if anyone wants to cure my curiosity, without killing this ‘cat’, I’d love to know.

Right, videos tonight. In truth, I assumed, in my innocence, that I wouldnt find David Soul singing live, but seems I’m wrong

Oh, and for those fortunate enough to read, and know about both blogs, this comment is for you. Dream outfit to wear to the races, probably this! Hat would even work for Royal Ascot, lol!

My thanks actually go to Dave here at home, who indirectly suggested the title of this blog.

Its funny, it used to be a case that when I went shopping, I kept an eye open for silver items of clothing, no prizes for working out why! Alright, as I proved today, I still do. But, and heres the interesting point, my first instinct wasnt robot, though that thought did come to mind, it was that it would work as a 20’s flapper type top/short skirt (just about knee length I guess). So alright, I could have gone for the similar one in black, but hey, old habits die hard lol!

The good news with this, as opposed to the last 20’s style item I bought, its machine washable, yay! I also bought a new handbag, or more strictly a shoulder bag in green. Hasnt got an outside pocket (generally a must with me, for train pass etc), but otherwise, perfect. Got a little blue purse/card holder thing, to help with finding it in the bag though. How much for all 3, just £11! Top/skirt was massively reduced, the others less so, but still cheaper than they should have been. I know, the recession isnt good for everyone, but give me the chance of an appealing bargain, and… 🙂

Its funny, you think you’ve got a week off, you should be able to get things done. Indirectly, yes, I have, but in terms of reading and writing, no chance! Both Monday and yesterday had appointments to keep which took up most of the day, and alright, today I just wanted to get out! Was a good shopping expedition, even if the bus travel wasnt. Arriva buses, take a bow, but only of shame! Tomorrow, I will get some reading done, I will, I must!

The video, yes, not hard to work out, a song from the late seventies, by the title of…oh, you’ve worked it out, why tell you. The shock, its a live one, and unlike so many ‘celebrity’ singers, David Soul clearly could sing!
