Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



My Entries for the 2009 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest

Since 1982 the English Department at San Jose State University has sponsored the Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, a whimsical literary competition that challenges entrants to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels.

More information about the BLFC can be found at this link: Contest

My Entry for 2009:

An oval near translucent opalesque wafer thin bar of Zest soap slipped from my hand during my shower sticking to my abdomen hairs right above my belly button and looking down I felt the same joy mother kangaroos feel when their young make that arduous journey after 31 days of gestation and climb to the pouch using only slightly developed forelimbs.

Update 2009.03.10
2nd Entry:

From the wikipedia article on "Opiod Receptor": 'an IUPHAR subcommittee[11][12]has recommended that appropriate terminology for the 3 classical (μ, δ, κ) receptors, and the non-classical (nociceptin) receptor, should be MOP, DOP, KOP and NOP respectively', which I remember fondly as 'MOPsie, DOPsie, KOPsie and NOPsie Cotton Tales' from my earlier days at the magnet school from our biochem lectures of Dr. Pedro Cotton.
