Don't go on vacation if you are serious about being a writer belonging to The Spoof...or even loosely connected therewith, forthwith or even forsooth.
There are many reasons for not going on vacation, unless you are able to take along your laptop computer and your 'undying' enthusiasm to be somewhat creative in a literacy capacity whilst being surrounded by folk who mock you and ridicule your endeavours even though they look forward to re-runs of 'On The Buses' and 'Open All Hours' - not to mention 'Dinnerladies'.
I DO know about that which of I speak, having just returned from 3 weeks 'over 'ome' visiting 'loved ones'.
This visit was extremely frustrating in more ways than one.
I was unable to access a computer on a regular basis-which left me extremely frustrated and a tad upset.
People 'mocked' me for my 'addiction' to The Spoof, yet my brother is addicted to Jehova's Witnesses and just cannot seem to grasp the similarity of 'addictive personalities' which we seem to have inherited from parents who were addicted to queuing up for 'anything' and 'everything' - playing 'Spot The Ball' , 'doing the Pools' and paying five quid every two weeks to a fella covered with tatoos, cleaning their windows - which are never even 'grubby'.
There is something definitely wrong with this picture.....I should have been a Window Cleaner like my cousin, who now owns a pub in the Canary Islands, or I should turn my life over to Jehova. Nah! Bugger that for an addiction....I'll stick with The Spoof.
