My weak-end...

.....slavishly he wrote, each vitriolic word bleeding onto the computer screen as his tired, blistered fingers stabbed them out. This would be his crowning glory, his legacy. Never before had he written with such dedication and enthusiasm - passion, even. Not even once in his life had he previously unleashed this demon, allowed the Kraken that slumbered inside to awaken.

Second followed second, minute followed minute, but this mattered not to The Author. Feverishly he willed his fingers to keep pace with the torrent of thoughts cascading from his mind, thoughts regarding the injustices, the crimes, the agonies of the world. One moment crying at the inhumanity propelling his ravings, the next cackling manically as an argument fell into place as neatly as a tetris block. He grinned and gurned insanely at the witticisms that leapt like static electricity from human mind to hard-drive - not mere innuendo or sarcastic put-down but something... alive!

Evening fell, darkness came, and still The Author wrote - nay, wrought his opus, until finally... Peace descended on that battered keyboard. Barely a sound, nothing but the delicate, pained breaths struggling past his lips. Breaths that slowed until shuddering to a stop, cut down by an almost inaudible utterance...

"It is done."

Slowly, but with purpose, The Author's hand reached the comforting bulb of the mouse and stroked it along its mat, carefully aligning the innocent cursor with it's ominous partner, that which bears the name 'Publish Post'. And with one gentle press, an alien feeling to those fingers more used to hammering, it was done indeed.

Oh no! Poor old sausage. I'm sure it was a masterpiece, like Barbudo's lost works.

Write your wisdom in Word or Simple Text or anything you can save. Then save it. Then copy and paste it, you cuntus shortsightedus you.

That'll teach you for blogging on a Saturday when you should be out drinking.

Did you say bold words when it happened ?

FMC - it was.

Philip - I don't have a home PC and was at a net cafe, so saving it is only a short term solution... whereas the problem we encountered lasted somewhat longer!

El B - probably not, you maestro of maestros!

Andraste - I'd been drinking already. Don't forget I'm a few hours ahead of you all!

Ivar - you can indeed, although it is better to drink for 30 seconds and then blog for 30 seconds, back and forth. Less chance of spilling beer and mis-spelling words that way. Less chance, not no chance!

AB - My words were indeed bold. I'm sure you can all fill in the blanks....
