Dear copy of Long Lankin,
where the hell are you? I put you somewhere safe, so I could read you after all those library books that were due, but then life and uni work go in the way. It's not because I didn't care, I was savouring you, waiting for the right moment, but now you're gone. I looked under B for Barraclough, I looked on all the nonfiction shelves just to make sure you hadn't been misplaced, I even looked under and in that massive pile of papers on my desk. I long to read you Long, I really do. But if you don't come out of hiding soon I will have to give up and abandon hope of ever having you scare the crap out of me in the middle of the night, because I'll probably read you in the room without curtains, so I'll be all creeped out, and sometimes the cats sit there and look in with shiny ghoulish eyes and give me heart attacks; it would have been a great creep fest, but you're missing out!
Thinking of you!
Tanja xxx

message 1: by Jason (new)

Jason Koivu I had a conversation like this last night with my extra blank checks, which went missing. Finally I said, "If I asked my wife where you'd be, where would she say you were?" And then I found them.


Tanja I found it! We moved house and it turned up, having been tucked away on top of a cupboard (I presumed ready to pounce at an opportune moment). I wish I had a wife whom I could imagine asking questions, but alas I am supposed to have that role, and the powers that be didn't give me the gift of finding. I think they gave me extra procrastination skills instead...

Well I hope you use your power for the forces of good.

Always! I should be studying and here I am; on the internet, eating coconut treats, with a purring cat on my lap :)
