Persuasive

1. Instrumental Music



Given that my sound is compromised on this computer, I hope this is the correct piece of music, otherwise this post is ruined and I will return sobbing to my still warm bed, thwarted by my first real 365 post.

2. Random Calligraphy



3. A quote from my mailbox

Please note that I will not be quoting from any private messages sent to me [unless it's too funny not to!]. I may quote from messages I send or comments I receive because I subscribe to comment feeds. And I also get stuff like this:-

She got the unԁerѕtanding from cooking ρionеer Barbaгa Κerr.
Warm air balloon гіdes аbοut the gorge are also awfully sought aftеr.
The wall panеls саn be introduced in hallwaуs, doorωayѕ,
and shining straight aѕ a dаnce floor.


This piece of spam was heading straight for my blog... I sat and read it over and over and thought about the warm air over the gorge... sheer poetry, this spammer is wasted and should get a blog.

  1. I can report - correct music and a catapulting back in time at the very first chord!
    Spam poetry...I haven't had anything quite so eloquent but I rather like the rubbish that's written and always read them before deleting them...and am curious about the occasional strange 'w' font. Why??

  2. Annie: Thank you for reassuring me about the music... I still haven't listened, I'm just about to. I have found a real classic for tomorrow.
    I am also curious about the strange 'w' issue... I have to admit that I was rather impressed that this eloquent piece of spam was destined for my blog... shining straight as a dance floor.

  3. After I got over the (almost) sight of Roger's bum, I read and re-read the quote. Um...warm air balloon aides...wall panels in the doorways?
    Oh dear! I think perhaps I should put my glass in the dishwasher and go to bed...

    Can't wait for the another 364!

  4. Dinah: I reckon I might be flagging by Thursday, but I will do my best... do you think people will mind if I take 365 photos of the same piece of calligraphy but from different angles? No, of course I wouldn't do this... unless I get desperate.

  5. One down, 364 to go. This seems like quit an insane undertaking. Best of luck you you guys. I admire your crazy gumption. I couldn't do it.

  6. Why not put this strange piece of spam poetry into calligraphy and post a picture.

    And if that can make you feel better, I haven't posted anything since last October!

    *sigh*

  8. Mr Banish: Come on, you know you want to join in too!

    Mr Deep: I will indeed write up the spam poetry... I will have a collection ready to be published in time for Christmas... an elegant socking filler. I've been called worse things.

    Mr Lax: No, did I win yet?

    Tony: But 1971 wasn't that long ago, was it???

    1. No way! I actually think I post TOO MUCH! If I post more frequently, I'm afraid I'll become tedious. I mean...even more tedious.

    2. Mr Banish: I am already finding myself tedious... but you never are.

    3. Too bad tedium isn't an Olympic event. We could go for the gold.

  9. I find I couldn't resist clicking on to the Avengers link after that.

    Oh blimey. There's The Saint. And Laramie. I might not get much more done this evening. If you don't see me about, I've drowned in a sea of nostalgia.

  10. Z: I think the next 364 days may be a sea of nostalgia!

  11. It's time for a remake-update of the persuaders with a gender reversal - Nigella Lawson as Sinclair and Brittany Spears as Wilde

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wendy: I get Brittany Spears as Wilde... but am thinking Kathy Burke for the Sinclair role?
    Just to shake things up a bit.

  15. I wish you luck with your blogging plan, Ms Scarlet, but I fear you might be diverted by the prospect of warm air balloons riding over your gorge.

  17. Mr Auty: I think the warm air balloons can have a distracting effect on us all!
    I am now doing the 104 Challenge, which should be within my scope.
