Perhaps Not In Cold Weather

As ever, my time is not my own.

As a result, I have been away from my keyboard for a while. It's only been two weeks, of course, but that's an eternity in blogging terms, and the shareholders (dare I say stakeholders?) are getting restless. Dammit, they want to see product.

Well, that's too bad. Just typing is testing my mettle at the moment.

Indigo Roth, thoroughly plastered.I would normally find it easy to think outside the box, run ideas up the flagpole, and push the envelope. But despite my best efforts, after pushing the aforementioned envelope, I remain stationery.

You may ask how I came to be here. Well, that's a funny tale. Well, I expect I'll laugh about it in years to come. Though perhaps not in cold weather.

But for now, let's just say that if a close friend asks for your help testing his new invulnerability suit, don't let him run you over with a truck until beta testing is complete.

  1. good afternoon Indigo. i brought fresh chicken soup and a straw if you're hungry. how long do you think i should avoid iDifficult's calls?

  2. So you're saying that the invulnerability suits don't work, is that right?

    I'm going to have to rethink today's wardrobe.


    p.s. "Perhaps not in cold weather". :-D Why I oughta...

  3. Hey Eolist! That sounds delightful, thank you. Any chance of some puréed meaty pizza, please? As for taking calls, I think he's got Pearl on the hook for now, so you should be okay.

    Hey Pearl! Sounds like a plan... Perhaps something in a shocking pink taffeta? With wellingtons? Loving the new avatar, by the way.

    Thanks to you both! Indigo

  4. Uh-oh. Hope you recover soon. At least enough to eat proper meals rather than sip them through a straw. I never volunteer to be part of beta testing. Am I too cautious?

  5. Hey Blissed-Out! Nope, you're definitely not too cautious; your experience and sanity keep you on the straight-and-narrow. But I have a great investment here that's definitely not a Ponzi scheme. Are you in?! Indigo

  6. Good lord, man! While I truly appreciate your continuing quest to find a way to keep me safe from further pratfalls, testing the invulnerability suit yourself is above and beyond the call of duty. Cease and desist immediately!

  7. Oh, dear... I don't like to think of you laid up and at the mercy of iDifficult and the badgers.

  8. Ha! Awww...I hope you have a pretty nurse tending to you my dear friend :)

  9. Hey BoomBoom! Okay, it's a deal. I promise to not get involved in the next phase of testing. Apparently he's bought a small-yield "battlefield" nuke especially.

    Hey Jayne! Thank you, but it's okay. The badgers have been very helpful. Hoth fitted wheels to my shoulders, and Sollust has been wheelbarrowing me round the garden. Fresh air, and having my head banged accidentally against the shed. You can't beat it.

    Hey Kato! Sadly not, tho I'm open to offers.

    Thanks one and all! Indigo x

  10. Are you sure you're not just covering because the squidrel got you?

  11. Hey Joshua, nope. The Squiddrel got 'Difficult two weeks back - it was his inspiration for the suit. Which is why it was covered in strands of red hair and spittle. Not very Savile Row. Indigo
