Re: Adventures of Capt. McClain, pt 1

"Regimen" is misspell-erized. Fraaaak. It's fixed now. I guess I need to figure out how to install spell check in Notepad++ and hope it does a better job than Chrome. :cry: It's a good thing. I think that one of the challenges to writing drabbles is to flesh in the details as much as possible while...

But only after you explained it, guess it was over our heads... :lol: I suspect it was more under rather than over. It's closely related to a pun in a sense. That's either too cute to live or over my head. Sure it's not "Thee"? Edit: I guess not. This is like the first version of the "who's on firs...

Re: Adventures of Capt. McClain, pt 1

That's quite a drabble there. Much more complex than most. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. It's hard to keep Capt. McClain stories on track and still appropriately spastic, and I'm too close to it at the moment to know if I succeeded. Typo alert. Dammit. That's what I get for tr...

Adventures of Capt. McClain, pt 1

(Adventures of Capt. McClain, pt 2 , pt 3 ) Capt. McClain was the envy of every sensible man and of several less sensible women. Who could help but admire a man with the untamed sagacity to sharpen his bayonet on his teeth? Not to mention having the teeth to accomplish the task. Very few envied his ...

Re: Norway's being sucked into a reality vortex.

I suspect this is one of those things where we'll never learn the truth. Ignoring the horribly 'shopped pictures (why did they feel the need to 'enhance' a horribly CCD-style distorted photo?), the video does make it look like an artificial phenomena. I guess the video could be 'enhanced' too. I'm h...

Re: Drabblecast 140- Trifecta X

I loved the first two and liked the last. Probably owing largely to my love of the absurd. Outside the Box would probably have been a "love" too if I hadn't anticipated more absurdity. It was way too real for me (marketing droids D: ) to put it in the category of absurd. It reminded me a lot of Mur ...

Re: Dreamsicle

Intention is a bit too active. Having "thought" in both lines would be too much. Perhaps:

"Every thought produced its own taste.
I'm not sure which whimsy produced the coppery taste of blood."

Re: Leaving a Mark

Ye elder gods, I love the way you slowly build up the significance only to bring it down to what we would normally consider mundane. Reminds me of Discordianism in a way.

I drew a bright dividing line across the apartment.

Ineffective?

Re: Announcing the Weekly Tw(itter)-(Dr)abble Contest!

I guess this didn't work for me because I couldn't grok the idea that "misunderstanding" would ever be considered a good thing to give. People seem to be rather fond of misunderstanding though. Having worked in the service industry, I've seen a lot of people work pretty hard at misunderstanding peo...

Not quite. Google Arthur Schopenhauer. 100 characters can't do him justice. Ah. I'm vaguely familiar with Schopenhauer, but haven't actually read any of his work. I'll have to add him to my list. Just confused , though I'm sure I'm missing (I'm misunderstanding) something. It's probably too large a...
