The Cylon detector worked well - Josie wasn't a toaster. Of course, it didn't pick up that she was a minion of a lesser god.

I may even listen to my "prize" that eric posted.
That prize is the third riddle. I was watching La Boheme last night when the idea of a Turandot Twabble Riddle came to me.

I'm a huge fan of Puccini's orchestrations and especially his brilliance at making the orchestra accent and augment the voice. In Turandot, the first question is accented with a bassoon, the second has a clarinet fluttering around her voice, perhaps to reflect the "flickering" in the riddle, and finally the third riddle uses a more intense orchestration for dramatic impact. All three riddles use dramatic pauses and some slightly discordant strings to add a sense of unease to the questions.

But of course I realize this isn't everybody's cup of tea.

He realized the truth, the red icing painting a static smile over his ginger face, crying "Made to be eaten, happy to go."

All his wife had left of him was a few crumbs, but she took comfort in how bravely he went headfirst into that milky beyond.

PS I can't decide which shade of pink I like more. This one is more bubblegumish, which I like, but it seems a little red. Is this one too Barbie-esque?

Full-filment:

GBM sat rigidly in his freshly baked house, fantasizing about how complete he would feel when somebody finally ate him.


(Avenger: I think I like the barbie pink (bolded) the best, but either shade works. That makes three of us who have claimed twabble colors now. 8) I love my Matrix green, and of course ASID is blue, but nobody else can seem to pick a color and stick with it.)

Just in time for Christmas...

They said that his death is for the greater good. Jobs will be created. Soon a black ops team was winging to the North Pole.

Joseph flopped down next to her, sweaty and spent. "Was it good for you?" he asked in vain. Mary sighed; she'd had better.
Top notch!

Agreed, PMS rocks the house, at least until the restraining order is in place... ;-)

Christmas, Hanukkah, all were meaningless to her, just more tear filled days in an endless string of Norm-less sorrow.

Thanks for the compliments, boys. It helps to relieve some of my heartache.

Oh Norm, why did you have to guest host escape pod? I wasn't ready for the crushing tentacle grip of love.

The "House" of God...

(Since this went over so well the first time, and since there have been no twabbles in the last episodes, I thought I would give y'all a late present, and re-post it here, along with a newer version.)


God stared through the stained glass window, longing for the half-remembered times before these prisons had existed.



(Newer version. I don't know which one I like more.)

God peered out through the stained glass, and longed for the half-remembered times when these prisons had not existed.

The second one is better, IMHO.

I prefer the first one, but with peered instead of stared (cuts down on the S's). I think "before these prisons had existed" sounds slicker than "when these prisons had not existed."

Second one shouldn't have a comma, because the portion after the comma is not an independent clause (you'd need a "he" in there). Not that it would matter in audio. :)

Are independent Clauses the one that work at department stores, but don't have any real power to bring gifts to children?

lol Big corporate-dependent Clauses will bring your children boring, conventional gifts. Support indie Clauses - brimming with creativity, new ideas, and also commas!

Heartbreak and tears overwhelmed her so that she shook as she said to them, "Look Joshua, it's not you. It's your clone."

It was Christmas morning and Billy now knew why Santa’s suit was red. It was to hide the blood, and Billy began screaming.
