Soooo… I’ve been absent a lot lately. In my defence, I’ve been busy. “Doing what?” I hear you ask.
Blimey, I really have a thing for wordy titles…
So the last time I was active on the ‘Spill, I posted a Miscellany whining about being dumped, did the ‘Spill game and as a result promised to unleash the more leftfield aspects of my CD collection on Pairubu, did another Miscellany announcing my imminent departure for a weekend in London and disappeared into the ether again… Amylee asked me on Facebook for a catching-up session in this week’s Miscellany, so here goes!
This is a short one this week, I’m afraid. I had planned to devote this one to the more unexpected corners of my CD collection (for Pairubu’s delight and delectation), but I’m afraid that’ll have to wait.
Right, you all know the deal by now. 11 songs, one of them’s getting lucky, one of them’s going home alone tonight (this is a fun analogy…) There may be a theme, but I’m not going to ruin the fun for you!
No-one appears to have put there name down for doing the ‘Spill Challenge next week, so it it OK if I do it? :D
Bitter? Me? No idea what you’re talking about…
OK… ‘teachable moments’… what’s up with that? It’s a line from Batman – Bruce Wayne: The Road Home Issue #3 Batgirl: Stephanie Brown in which Stephanie, after a close call fighting a mysterious thief in a high-tech armoured suit that imitates the powers of the primary members of the Justice League, defends her reckless charge into the fray in a discussion with Oracle (Barbara Gordon – yes, the Commissioner’s daughter if you’ve seen the films – and first Batgirl) by pointing out that she survived, and the fight was a ‘teachable moment’ – a spontaneous event that can be used as a learning experience.
