March of the Internet Nobody, day eighteen, part two…

I finally got round to wading through a few e-mails today and happened to stumble upon a post from Luccia Gray over at Rereading Jane Eyre who had nominated me for the My First Post Revisited blog hop feature.

As it happens, I took part in a similar first post challenge not all that long ago and obviously there would be no point in reposting the same post again, especially since it was my second ever post which featured in that last challenge, as the first post on Diary of an Internet Nobody got inadvertently deleted in the intervening five years or so.

Following so far?

Well, I suggested to Luccia that she choose a number between 3 and 10 and I would then reblog the corresponding post from the archives for your reading pleasure.

She picked number 4, so the next post you see will be the fourth time I ventured forth into the blogosphere.

I also have to nominate five other bloggers to (if they so choose) take part in the blog rewind and here are my five nominees:

My Silver Streaks

The Thoughts of Life and Me

Willow dot 21

It Is What It Is

Joeyfully Stated

Pop over and check out their blogs, too, while you’re here, there’s bound to be something to amuse, amaze or entertain you.
Up next, youthful high jinx in theatre land.

Prepare to go back in time…

Reblog: Ash – Little Fears

Unable to locate a reblog button on Little Fears, I’ve had to resort to a link, (brilliant planning, I know) so please pop over and enjoy;

Reblog: Waiting on accidents

I like discovering new styles of fiction writing and there is something quirky and yet accessible about the way Stephen Baird spins a yarn.

Check him out with this post from his blog, Ordinary Handsome…

Ordinary Handsome

Me and Son Gundy are sitting in our lawn chairs, right here at the intersection of Yellow Road and St. Maggie’s. It is cold and it is snowing, and it’s only ten degrees. We lifted these chairs from Goodwill because no one was foolish enough to buy them. The manager – that would be Joe Bodine, him from over on Hiatt Street next to the old Courthouse – he helped us load them in the back seat, folded them proper so they wouldn’t get snarled. They’re decent enough chairs for when you’re sitting in the cold, waiting on accidents.

We pass a Thermos back and forth, and it’s filled with black coffee and Gram’s Special: two parts brandy and one part never-mind. We watch the cars slide through the intersection, brake lights flashing, but no pavement to grab hold because of the ice. The cars sometimes slide sideways, slide up…

Reblog: Bacon Balsamic Onion Jam

Reblog: Bacon Balsamic Onion Jam

Reblog number one today is a post featuring something I absolutely HAVE to try.

So, whet your appetite and let’s see “What’s For Dinner Moms?”

What's for Dinner Moms?

I have an onion hating daughter who when I told her she would love this was adamant that she would NOT like this and didn’t know why I was making this.  I kept telling her she would. Needless to say when we had dinner tonight she was asking for more. Her brother looked at her and said, “You realize you are actually asking for more onions don’t you?” Yes. We all had to give her a good bit of ribbing over this.

Verdict:

This has the tart taste of the balsamic vinegar with a hint salty bacon flavor and a bit of sweetness from the onions themselves. We all loved this and could eat it plain with a just a fork.

I served this over bacon stuffed cheeseburgers but this would also be delicious on a toasted baguette for a different appetizer or even on a cheese platter to complement…

Reblog: OF ASSASSINATION & GITANES

The last of my opening salvo of reblogs this week is from a man with a truly unique style. His blog, The Drivellings of Twattersley Fromage is a glorious mixture of fiction, poetry and the sort of outright nonsense that Edward Lear would be proud of.

Here is a slice of wartime intrigue, from the always artfully articulate Mr Mike Steeden…

 ‘No other capital city in the world can do grey quite like London,’ her passing thought. A thought dismissed almost as soon as it arrived. For as of now, there was the little matter of the naked Ambassador lying as prone as prone could be, upon his back atop a plainly hideously expensive Afghan rug to attend to. Clearly, her stiletto heel dug into his pudgy chest bone was causing the gratifying discomfort intended. Moreover, that he knew exactly what was coming next. Not that he needed a clue, the silencer affixed to her pistol and aimed at his forehead was, regardless, the giveaway. Was that a tear in his eye? Mattered not. She wondered how he might beg for mercy had it been the case that he had not been adeptly gagged.  How so naked? Her trademark of course, her panache, her cultivated style.

“Gosh it’s so very bitter…

Reblog: Unapologetically Yours

The second blogger I’d like to introduce you to this week is a young woman with a love for words, a positive outlook on life and a very obvious talent for writing.
This is a post from last week which I thought was especially powerful and shows that wisdom and a social conscience are not reserved for older writers.

Please show your appreciation for miss Nandini Bharadwaj…

Pages That Rustle

monday-musings

I haven’t been able to post since the dawn of March due to an illness and other unforeseen circumstances. All the while I was away, I was brainstorming post ideas. Many of them were interesting and I’m pretty sure I’ll flesh them out soon, but only one made me think twice about writing it, for it wasn’t a ‘safe’ idea. The more I thought about it, the more it struck me as odd because I didn’t feel comfortable talking about whatever struck my fancy on my own blog. I’ve always been a cautious person and deep in my heart I can still sense a certain reluctance warring with my bolder side, begging me to reconsider.

Reblog: Body Part Bags (and the Parts That Come in Them)

Part two of this reblog from Reflections From The End Of The World, this time featuring the writing of the very talented Mr Todd Mayhew…

Reflections from the End of the World

body part bags.jpg

By Todd Mayhew

My chair is pulled out a little from my desk and there’s a brain on it. It’s lumpy and dark red—so dark it’s almost black, and its curves have white worms of light reflecting on them from the lamp above. It’s been there ever since last month when I called the police and told them that Ellie the elderly lady next door was cutting people up into little meat cubes and hiding them in her kitchen cabinets, and the police came and yelled at me because that turned out not to be true.I told them it was an honest mistake, that it was dark and shadowy when I saw her moving around in there and maybe she was just chopping up the zucchini for the bread she baked for me and brought over right before I called them. I said that I was very sorry and that…
