Still ‘normal’ after all these years?

I know, doesnt sound like me, does it, lol? Well, apparently one part of me is still normal after all these years, my blood! Probably is the only part of me that is normal, but besides all that…

Yes, I rang up and got my blood test results today, and it seems they’ve all come back fine. So, if you want to look at it positively, the only thing wrong with me at present is the fracture in my back, which is of course down to osteoporosis, and old age. Of course, given the related pain due to that, its only a mixed blessing, I guess? Thankfully, today hasnt been too bad, I’ve spent most of the day in my brace corset, and probably because I’ve been taking it relatively easy, the pain has been pretty minimal, but I’m sure that work on the next 2 days might change that lol! 😛

And yes, I only wear the brace corset as a back support, and nothing to do with the sensation of having my waist pulled in, which I enjoy far too much! 😉

No, despite everything, even though I probably should at this point, I’m determined not to believe I’ve acted in public for the last time. In truth, I probably have, not only because my part options would now be a lot more limited, but also the fact its been a few years now, and in terms of seriously competing for roles, no I havent done much of late! Well, beyond writing about the dream, pretty much nothing! So yes, it probably is over, but I’m not going to officially retire just yet!

As to me being normal, oh fine, I fail on most counts! Have done that for a long, long time, in truth. I mean, its perfectly normal to want to be turned into a robot, fly in an alien spacecraft, and have ECT (mild, ideally) as research for a book! And lets face it, they are just 3 of the weirdest things, in a pretty crazy lifestyle attitude! Oh, and as for the dream of time travelling, and finding out what Clara Johnson’s lifestyle was like, well…rolls eyes…

So yes, lets face it, I’m probably right when I say that the only thing normal about me, is my blood! The rest of me, still crazy after all these years, and still dreaming of more craziness, however unlikely that is now.

Which leads me to the video, the obvious one, a live version…

They think its all over, it is now!

Though there is no sign of any crowd on the pitch! Mind, unless you’re Britsh, and remember 1966, you might not get that comment lol! Well, New Order, and 1990 did revive it, but all the same…

Yes, not only is the story now officially finished, its been edited to be readable by some wonderful man, and sent to Simon as well, though only after a modicum of delay, as the internet crashed here for about half an hour or so. Alright, I cheated, I went and got my wireless pointer device and sent it off, but…all good fun!

As some may had noticed, it had been a while since I’d written much, certainly anything longer than a 1 chapter short story, thats for sure. Though none of the 3 chapters are that long, its nearly 10K as a whole, and thats definitely been a long while since that happened. The main pleasant surprise was that the actual writing process actually was a pleasure. Whether that was because I was writing something fresh, and with a great inspiration, or whether it was simply a case of taking the time factor out of it, and the words flowed. Either way, the only frustration I had was finding time to get the words down, not trying to find any to put down.

So yes, I got something out of it that I hadnt felt for a while towards the end of my regular writing, a pleasure in writing a story. There were a couple that had made me feel that way, though ironically neither are on the Archive for various reasons. But in terms of general MC writing, I’d hit a major rut!

I’m not saying when I will write again, though that will be more down to time than desire, its fair to say, but it will happen at some point, I enjoyed doing it again, not a task that had to be done.

I did think about letting you all hear a ‘certain lady’ talking, but hey, if you want to do that, its not hard to find on You Tube. There is an interesting interview in 4 parts on there, but also a section from a talking movie, where it is actually Louise talking, which thanks to Heather, was how I found out how Margaret, sorry, Louise actually spoke in the first place.

But no, lets go with a pop video, hopefully some will spot the connection here at least, I’m sure James, and probably Heather will, if no one else does.

No Garfunkel here, just Simon, a track from the Graceland LP, one of the greats of all time
