I’ve been getting more famous today!! Some people came round (I have no idea why to be honest!) and one of them was reading my blog and telling me all sorts of stuff, which I will now tell you about.
First thing is, he was reading my post about the ‘Mysterious Future’ and saying that his generation didn’t worry about global warming, because that wasn’t really the main issue. People were more worried about nuclear bombs and things. According to him, the Russians had their nuclear stuff pointed at them and the Americans had their missiles and stuff pointing at Russia. And all it took was some politicians to fall out and they’d press the button, and they’d ALL be destroyed! They grew up with that ‘over their heads’, which is much scarier than my generation and the global warning. If you’re an adult and remember this, please tell me about what you think of this!
Another thing, not really relating to my blog, was he was saying that Bristol Rovers and Bristol City should join up to make one Bristol football team. I don’t care about football, or Bristol’s football stuff, but you know. But apparently, the Rovers and Bristol City fans hate each other, but really, it doesn’t matter. If they want a Bristol team in any major competition, they should do something about it and overcome their differences.
Also, he said that apparently (again) the oil companies are trying to stop the electric car people making electric cars because it will ruin their business. But the oil business will be ruined anyway if they keep mining it at this rate. Electric cars all the way!
On a more Horrible Histories note, he said that a lot of their inspiration comes from Monty Python. I’ve never seen it, but I’ve heard of it. According to him, they dress up in historical outfits and do sketches sometimes. I guess, if I am allowed, I could check Monty Python out to see if it’s as AMAZING as HH.
My fingers just don’t type fast enough! I have so much in my head at the moment and I really want to write it, but my fingers are just too slow. I haven’t really had writer’s block before, and it sounds pretty bad (I wouldn’t be able to update the blog, DISASTER!!). Oh wow, I just thought of MORE to write!! Some writers probably sit at their computers for ages with writer’s block, and when they don’t, sit at their computers for ages, WRITING nonstop! Wow, there’s just too much in my head, it’s all trying to get out! I have exclamation mark overuse people!! Argh!!!
He was also recommending me some books. I LOVE historical fiction, and I also quite like sci-fi. He was telling me about some sci-fi books I should read, obviously thinking of my ‘Mysterious Future’ (see above) post and thinking I like writing/reading about a ruined future, which I DO! There’s a writer called JJ Bel…something who wrote a book called ‘The Drowned World’ (can’t be bothered to add a link, it would upset my flow of writing) which sounds quite good. If I do like it, it could open my eyes to a whole new genre of books which I may LOVE TO BITS!!
Oh no, I keep forgetting the stuff I’m gonna write about. Nooooo!!!! Oh well.
I’ve also been really wanting to write a short story, inspired by the Merrybegot. I’m thinking it could be about a girl, accused of being a witch, running away from her accusers to the New World where she can make a new life. I’ve thought of the first couple of sentences:
I am running. And God may try to stop me, He may send demons to cross my path, but I will not stop running. Not until I reach the New World.
Sound good so far? I could go on to write more, but I want it to be secret. I’m the type of person who doesn’t really like people reading/looking at stuff before it’s finished. I, when I write it for real, will indent it and stuff. I’d, for effect, indent it after every sentence for those first sentences. I have quite a few ideas for what I can write next, and I may go and write it now.
Oh, actually, I really should be doing my homework (grr, annoying, I have homework during half term).
I have the whole week. I’ll do it later.
Hope you enjoyed this miscellaneous post (have I spelled it correctly?).
Your random and thinky blogger, Jaz
