Notes to Self…. [A pertinent list featuring Aidan Turner]

1) Write a blog post before the end of June.

2) Reply to comments of previous blog post.

3) Think about strong language. Strong language is defined as swearing – surely it isn’t strong at all? It is lazy, easy, weak? Surely it is stronger to find more meaningful words rather than to rely on a predictable fuck? I mean, who wants a predictable fuck?

4) Do some calligraphy. Do I really want to do more calligraphy? If I make a point of giving it up then maybe I’ll be desperate to do it?

5) Take another photo of a pile of read books on a chair.

6) Try to decimate Mr Devine’s sideboard with a giant picture of Aidan Turner. I don’t think my method works anymore, but at least I can have a picture of Aidan Turner on my blog.

7) Why hasn’t Aidan Turner been considered as the next James Bond/Dr Who/presenter of The One Show – write to the relevant organisations and suggest his inclusion on their shortlists.

8) Cut toe nails.

9) Think about 1938.

10) Publish this list as a blog post – but isn’t that cheating a little?

    I just checked Mr DeVice’s sidebar, looking for a ginormous Aidan, and all that’s there is a small pink bush from a fortnight ago – how disappointing. Jx

    PS nothing worse than a predictable fuck, in my opinion. I like unexpected ones, myself!

        Ms Mistress – Yay! The next Aidan invasion will be bigger and better! I will do my pile of books for my next post, and then sort out 1938, or vice versa.

        That super-enlargement transfer thingy only works if you re-blog another WordPress blog to yours. If you re-blogged mine the storm clouds on my header would probably overwhelm his umbrella factory.
        I’m not sure about writing a list as a blog post. (I’m rubbish at lists anyway).

    Jon – I think my latest post needs time to work through to Blogger – and I’m not promising it will be ginormous, but cross fingers! Imagine, Mr Devine is beavering away working and has no notion of my evil machinations. I hope he gets an Aidan sized surprise later.
    Sx

    P.S Not too unexpected!!

    I too thought of trying to decimate Mr Devine’s sideboard with a giant picture, but had to be carful just what picture Id choose. I better much sure I have on my readers. Could be embarrassing. Or get me a date.

    I never was aware of Aiden Turner till Poldark aired here….ever since Im smitten. Like how to entrap him and make him my love slave.

    I like that cut toe nails made the list.

      Mistress B – Apologies, but Aidan is mine, all mine! Though I might let you borrow him in exchange for a holiday in your part of the world. I am cheeky like that.
      Yes, you have access to a WordPress blog don’t you, one moment whilst I come up with a cunning plan.

    Sweary calligraphy. I seem to remember that you rather liked doing that, and it ticks off a couple of items. Bollocks with curlicues, perhaps? Can’t join your Bond campaign because hand on heart I think it’s Sarah Millican’s turn, or else Basil Brush.

      Mr Batarde – Apologies, but I am only campaigning for AIDAN TURNER. Not Basil, or Sarah.
      I am tired of bollocks. To be fair the whole of the UK might be tired of bollocks. How about a fancy rendering of a pair of thighs? At least I’d get a chance to flash my g about.

        Damn it, I misread your ‘can’t’ as ‘can I’. Now my reply makes no sense and my comment thread has already turned into a shambles. And, it is my fault, which is unusual.

    Aidan Turner stared at me at Mitzti’s, busting at the seams so to speak. I have no idea about a predictable fuck. there’s always room for the un-predicktable I think. I am more interested in your thinking about 1938, if the number is representing the year of the 20th century. I was always fascinated with people who “live” in a certain year, like for example 1938 – with clothes, interiors etcetc. A kind of escape maybe. SOme took it to extremes and went back through the centuries – I think Gilbert & George made it into the 17th century once.

    Yes, your Aidan is rather modest, you must inflate him to 10mb worth of visage.

    I’m all about delayed gratification and a good deal of intellectual foreplay, so the idea of a predictable fuck makes be yawn.

    Like Mago, I am intrigued by the idea of the 1938 post. I hope it captures the zeitgeist of the era. Now you’ve built up a lot of expectation in us, dear, can you deliver?

    I have a book around here somewhere called “Bawdy Language”, maybe I should send it to you. I used to read romance novels at a very young age and I loved to image that the Romance Writers had a secret dictionary dedicated to all the many ways to mention the male genitalia without using penis or cock. I would not use cock in a story unless I were picking a fight because I find the word crass and unseemly. Though dick isn’t much better. I looked up Penis for more synonyms and…Lunchbox? What!?!?!

        Blanching at the ‘box of creams’ expression, I’m sure your readers will agree with me that ‘cunt’ sounds so much nicer.

        Thanks to having watched a show called “The Boys” the word cunt no longer feels like such a big deal. I got into fisticuffs with my stepmother after I called her a cunt once. At any rate, I wanted to do a blog post called “The Wee Cunts” (beecause thats what I call all the weeds in my yard nowadays) but I’m not sure how it would go over with my audience at my somewhat formal blog (and my MIL and some of her friends are among my readers.)

        I think you’ll going to have to start another blog, Melanie! Have one as formal, and one for self expression that you keep away from prying eyes. It’s a lot of fun.
        Anyhow, that’s a good name for weeds!

        I’m rather fond of the coy old-fashioned terms like male member, organ and manhood. Or if you’re feeling both coy and pompous, the membrum virile. But that’s quite enough genitalia.

        Nick – I’m not even sure how we got onto this subject! Male member – this one always makes me think of the Houses of Parliament for some reason.

    So who is this Aidan Turner?
    A well-known Irish actor, milud.
    Is he any relation to Tina Turner?
    Not as far as I know, milud.
    Is he any relation to J M W Turner?
    I really couldn’t say, milud.
    And is he a good actor or a bad actor?
    He’s won at least seven acting awards, if that means anything, milud.
    Most interesting. The court will now break for lunch.

    Notes to self:
    1) Cut toenails without swearing
    2) Create pile of read books on a chair
    3) Cut fingernails without thinking of 1938
    4) Create pile of unread books on a chair
    5) Wonder if I need more chairs
    6) Wonder if I could make better use of the existing chairs
    7) Check that I cut all my toenails
    8) Check that I cut all my fingernails
    9) Use a bit of strong language
    10) Wonder briefly what Aidan Turner has for breakfast

      I do not believe he is Bond “worthy”, sorry. He is not exactly dripping with testosterone, and the Dackelblick … I don’t think that would work. Maybe Dr Who, or something else you mentioned (and I have no clue about). But hey – the last time I saw a Bond movie was … in the eighties ?

    1) It is July now.

    2) Can’t be bothered to look, but I guess you did.

    3) There is something called “Starckdeutsch” (Ger., Eng.), if it helps.

    4) Yes, you will definitely be “desperate” if you give up calligraphy, You are very good at it

    5) Take another photo of a pile of read books on a chair. Just do it.

    6) This turned into an Aidan-Turner-shrine Don’t male me come up with images of my fat belly and a slipping towel !

    7) It is called “Dackelblick” in German, I have no idea how you call it in English.
    BOND has no Dackelblick !

    8) Cut toe nails.
    Good luck. It is important to do this. Did you know that CASANOVA only escaped the Venetian jail because he could get hold on the deVice they gave him to cut his toenails ?

    9) Think about 1938.

    10) It is cheating. But also helps with the comments.

      Point taken, Mr Mags, I shall publish something tomorrow – it might be 1938; it might be a photo of some old rain; or it might be an abundance of words strung together with love and dedication; OR, it might be none of these things and something different altogether, but I will publish something.
