(Extra)ordinary World

One thing I know about LA is that the rents can be absolutely crazy! Yes, I think I struck lucky with my rented apartment to be honest, and thats just dear old Hollywood. If you talk about some of the more exclusive areas of the city, like the Benedict Canyon area above Beverly Hills, then the rents become positively eye watering! One friend from the area sent me the details for this place, which might be perfect if I was a movie star, with a family, who can drive, but fine, I can dream!

Yes, fine, if anyone has $54,000 they wish to spend on a place for me in the Hills, and provide a chauffeur on top, I’d love it. I think I’ll pass on the family of children, but for a place like that, I guess I could be convinced? I assume she realized its about half a mile from the (in)famous Harlow/Bern mansion on Easton Drive when she pointed it out to me too.

Yes, it looks gorgeous, but what would I do in a house that size? Especially one that is about 2 miles from the nearest bus route! But yes, is it perfect for a movie star, absolutely? Sadly, at present, I’m not a movie star, but if anyone is offering the chance? 😉 Fine, I’d need to employ a driver, for sure, but…!

Yes, I need a real Jean Harlow full makeover to live there lol! Oh, I wish!

But yes, fine, its nice to see how the other half live, for sure.

Oh, what, my holiday home. Really? Fine, oh fine…

Will suit me perfectly, but its not Benedict Canyon lol!

The video. Well, as so often, there is a big hint in the blog title, though Benedict Canyon definitely isnt an Ordinary World to me at the moment, but, I can dream!

Writing Again? Must be on holiday!

Yes, after a long interval, I’ve actually written something fresh today. So yes, I must be on holiday, wouldnt have the time to do it otherwise, thats for sure. No, JK Rowling and her friends wont be quaking in their boots at that news. One, bacause its probably not that good, and two, its less than 2000 words long! But yes, it was fun doing it, all the same.

Whats that, is the heroine turned into a robot? Strictly, no, but I reckon Simon would give it an rb tag, all the same. But she might wear silver at one point, and could well be computer controlled, so… You might get a surprise in how she is at the end of the story though, knowing me. 😉 Well, slightly at least lol!

Its funny, isnt it. Many would say that as its Friday evening, my week off work must be over? Wrong, for me, I work pretty much every Saturday, and of late, most Sundays too, so some would say I’ve still got 2 days left! Strictly by my work shifts, its one, as Sunday was one of the days designated as a day off, not holiday. But even so…

Ah well, after the peace of this week, next week will officially be insane at work. For the Brits at least, the words Cheltenham Festival will explain that. For my North American friends, think Breeders Cup, for 4 days, with obstacles instead of flat races, you might get some idea. Though as off course betting barely exists outside of a very few places, maybe not? No, no tips, I wouldnt have a clue, despite my job.

Believe me though, wearing a silver bodysuit, and being turned into a robot might be the easiest way to get through the week at work! And no, for once, I’m not kidding, its not just the fantasy! Well, the fantasy might be fun, but at least being a robot would keep me sane, as a human, that might be a challenge. And yes, I’d enjoy it more too, grin!

Oh, and I know my design requests have met complete silence before, but lets try just once more. Because of light sensitivity, I sleep in a mask, just something that covers the eyes. Snag is, getting it to stay over the eyes all night. So guess what, in a story this week, a night cap is featured. You know, as in a cap that fits over your head, blocking out light, and muffling sound, sounds perfect to me. Alright, the one in the story also featured electrodes that influenced the wearer’s mind, but hey, thats optional. Yes, alright, I’d enjoy it, but the main thing for me (in real life) is a better light blocker at night. Anyone any ideas, or know where I can get one at a sensible price, shout!

Right, the video. Very apt for the story written today, I must say.

Oh, and if anyone wants me to post the story on here, then ask! I wont otherwise, who knows, that might even earn me a comment here, but probably not!
