* Another Bloody Challenge

Okay, it’s a new month.

I have no idea where January went, but I sure know where February is going.

Nicky and Cheesy Mike over at We Work For Cheese are running a sanity-testing 28 Day Writing Challenge. I know, I know, we barely finished the 30 Day Photo Challenge, and I know I’m supposed to be writing a book (and I am), but it seems I’m taking part in this one too.

Nicky was quite clear on that.

I have no idea how I get roped into these things, tho it’s interesting to note that they always send an attractive woman to ask me; perhaps I’m too much of a gentleman to say no. Or single for far too long. Or something.

So, here we go.

I’ve not forgotten The Cephalopocalypse, and will sneak out the next part or two when you’re least expecting it.

Slide on over to We Work For Cheese (after you've read this first, obviously) to check out the other folk taking part. Hell, to join in too, even. The more the merrier. Nicky won’t mind if you join the party late.

But if you do, you’d damn well better bring some Roquefort for her.

  1. LOL, I'm glad I was clear on your participation and thank you for calling me attractive. Unless you were referring to CheesyMike?

    Very well done for someone who sent me a panicked email not two days ago. Now go link up over on my post so the others can visit you too!

    1. Hey Nicky! Panicked? I'm never panicked, my dear, British stiff upper lip and all that. That must have been the same scamp who volunteered me, the coward! I'm made of sterner stuff. And yes, definitely you; I've not been single long enough to be flirting with guys yet. Thanks for doing this. I reserve the right to change my mind. Indigo x

  6. I'm also going to need more than one drink in order to make it through the next month. I don't know why I agreed to do this. I hate blogging competitions.

  7. Good stuff, Indigo! You still haven't told me if Elliot is married.

    1. Hey Linda! I can confirm the lad is single (in this reality, at least). But of course, he's married to his job. I'll pass on your regards, mind =) Indigo x

    1. And a visit. I'll join him, you know, just to make sure he doesn't lose his bottle. Wow, I hope that travels as a phrase. Roth x

  9. You know, I'm supposed to ride the stationary bike tonight. Instead, now I want to drink bourbon and eat cheese. Yes, my mind is too tired and that's what it took from this post. Not roquefort, though. Maybe some asiago and Triscuits.

    1. Hey Joshua! Could you eat the cheese while ON the bicycle? I'm just asking. Indigo

  10. If we declare you the winner, does that make the next 27 days moot?

    1. What a brilliant idea, LM. Then we don't have to write anything.

    2. Stop it, you two, you'll get me into trouble with Nicky. I have quite enough (27) things to worry about already.

  11. So the password is "cheesy cliche"? If I say that out loud will I end up in a desert somewhere? *looks at ice in tumbler where drink used to be* Damn!

  14. I am intrigued, but admittedly a little confused. I think this qualifies as the most postmodern blog entry about cheese for the day.

    1. Hey KZ! I feared this response. May I recommend The Long Road Home? You may need a flask and sandwiches; I'm brevity impaired. It's fun, tho. Indigo

  15. "If you love someone, set them free" sent memories flooding through me of cheesy items in my past. The greatest? I owned a rainbow shirt... the one with half the rainbow in the middle and the rest on either sleeve. And I had a matching bedspread set of the rainbow as well. Awesome!

    1. Hey Kato! I know, right? It's baffling to me that some folk don't like cheese. But then, I think salmiakki tastes like liquorice, so what do I know? =) Roth x

  19. I saw a Tarot Card Reader once and I, too, ended up with a headache. Such is the non benefit (of many) of a tarot card reading......x
