    Any interest in this? Any idea for a better name?
    Is this the least creative post ever written?

    I am not sure but I think it ended with "what could possibly go wrong" :pac:

    So it's the 21st of June, sun splitting the stones and it's national music in the streets day. What could possibly go wrong?

    getting used to wearing a watch is a pain in the ass. My left arm now feels really, really light while my right arm feels insanely heavy.

    I agree - i stopped wearing them years ago
    no watches bracelets rings

    I only wear a wristwatch when I know I am going to be stuck in meetings all day. That way I can check the time without having to take my phone out.

    Yeah, I'm the same, but my Dad got me a nice engraved watch as a graduation present, so I've tried my best to get used to it. I still take it off and play with it as often as I wear it. I just deal with the weight by pretending I'm Hell Boy, with a red right hand :)

    ... play me out Nick... :cool:


  • Registered Users Posts: 199 ✭✭CD.


    It's an awesome looking watch, I got it as an early 21st present from my parents.

    So far I have onyl ever had two watches i wore, the one i have now and a binary watch where yuo press a button and it lights up, and yuo tell the time by which lights light up.

    I can tell time easier with that one than any of the others. Can't really read a clock face quickly, but i suppose i'll get used to it rather than having to count up each time.


    Just got to #1 in free short stories on Amazon.co.uk. excuse me while a I repeat a joke,
    Mr. (Rudyard) Kipling may make exceedingly good cakes, but I beat him to #1 in free short stories.

    What does that mean exactly?

    Just back from a most pleasant evening. The music was... amateur, as was to be expected but the teeming hordes of criminally beautiful people thronigng the streets defied belief.

    Hm, just downloaded Asylum from your site, out of curiosity. I think you'll have the privilege of being the first living author to appear on my iPad...


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,614 ✭✭✭ArtSmart


    Possible title. Sticks n Stones.

    ;)

    yay :) I hope I don't destroy the possibility of other living writers being downloaded.


    "What does that mean exactly?"


    The joke or the number one thing? though i suppose both are explained at once.

    A Rudyard Kipling short story was #1 in the short story subsection for free ebooks on amazon.co.uk, my collection of short stories went to number one in short stories last night, though back to number two this morning, foiled! I am hopeful it shall return to number one soon as it seems that downloads are worse in the morning than they are in the evening.

    Your short stories are the number 1 (or 2) downloaded free thing on Amazon :eek:

    I definitely have to grab a copy.

    That's awesome by the way. I'm not sure if I said congrats, but that's great :)
    It also lends hope :)
