"Context Insensitivity"

Bo never liked those context sensitive ad banners, especially when they began to offer him discount funeral services.



(Note to StalinSays: Nothing personal, it's just that Bo made my character count work out...) ;-)

Thx you two. I'm sure you meant, twabble not drabble, naturally.

A combination of writer's burn-out, Christmas, and a s-storm of caregiving has left me in a lengthy non-creative state.

Felt goot to knock something out, though, even if it was just 100 characters.

I'm sure my batteries will be rejuvinated enough to soon begin drabbling again in earnest. (Not to mention that darn novel I'm working on...)

Sorry about leaving you on a cliff-hanger, St.Tom. Ima gonna get back to Nightmare War sometime, (soon I hope... ) :-)

(btw, Strawman, I'm homing in on ya. Watch your back. Your hold on the #2 spot for prolific posters is in as much peril as Gatorage or Hellcat's hopes of winning the MBDM...)

Go Go TEAM P.A.I.N.G.U.I.N. The Bird Is The Word!!!

I think you've been slowly rolling back into the writing very successfully, just not at the manic(:-)) pace of earlier.

Go Go Team PAINGUIN!

Give 'em the Bird!

Ya, I guess so, that's Lithium for ya.

I still have hopes that "Straighter" might get picked up, haven't heard back yet. The slush-readers must be a bunch of slackers... Every last one of em... ;-)

I don't feel bad that my output has been low lately. What I'm doing now is very satisfying. Family first, and all that.

Cocking his gun and grinning menacingly, the serial killer gazed down at his grandma and her neighbor. "Family first."

The others mocked His pasty complexion daily. Fed up, He said, "Let there be light," and there was light (and bronzing).

Ah, some more good twabbles Avenger. This one reminds me of a few of mine from Thanksgiving...

Hmm, the bit about, "Let there be light" in the "bronzing" twabble inspired me to look up the exact wording from the end of one of my favorite movies. (I edited out the other character's dialogue.) Whenever I hear or see the words "Let there be light" I always think of this scene. I tried to condense this to a twabble, but could not make it work...
10 twabble points to whoever can tell me what movie this is from.

"False data can act only as a distraction. Therefore. I shall refuse to perceive you.

The only thing which exists is myself.

In the beginning there was darkness, and the darkness was without form and void. And in
addition to the darkness there was also me. And I moved upon the face of the darkness.

And I saw that I was alone.

Let there be light."

Bonus Points for referencing "Dark Star."

Gwen was in pain. That goddamn cat kept scratching her back legs. Earlier a mad gator came up her commode and bit her arse.

10 twabble points go to ROU for the correct answer. Yes, Darkstar is a freakin' classic. I dig the 70's beards, and how it's a comedic version of Alien.
And now a twabble...

I know I am the only thing that really exists, you folks are all just false data.

So I created false data?! ERROR! ERROR! E-

So, what can I spend 10 twabble points on?

I won't give you a hard time for the easy cut-off twabble there. Instead, I shall twabble in kind. :-)

Godel kept looking over his proof, always coming up with the same answer. G = Not G. He called it "The Incompleteness Theo

10 twabble points unfortunately gets you nothing, but 1,000 points will buy you a wonderfu-
Yeah, I see what you mean about the abrupt ending, this might help.

Darn, and here I thought "Context Insensitivy" had a chance of being a weekly winner, and swamp comes along and harshes my buzz with a twabble that I have to vote for as this weeks winner. (Not that my vote counts...)

Brilliant, AND topical, swamp...

One quibble, if you could lose a character somewhere, you could make it "19 years" which I believe is how long it has been since the last blue moon.

Just change "were-smurfs" to weresmurfs. After all, you don't write it as were-wolves. You just say werewolves.
