  • The Case Of The Missing Hamster: Chapter Fifteen

    By E M Faustus on July 21, 2013
      The Fifteenth Bit:  Home Time     The drive back was quite relaxing. It had taken Pete three hours to find a replacement hamster.  Probably would have been quicker, but I’d made him walk.  Well, none of us have a driving licence.  Still, I’d look into driving licences when we got back home.  Even with my excessive speeding and […]

    By E M Faustus on July 19, 2013
    The Thirteenth Bit:  Horny Hormunculous Handles Horrible Hamster.     I lit myself a fresh smoke and kicked Clare under the table.  She was about to interrupt.  Straight non-peeper guys don’t get the idea.  When the Bad Guy….

    The Twelfth Bit:  Dead isn’t necessarily Dead.     “Yes.  I am the Great Lucrezia Borgia.  And don’t look at me like that Lady.  It’s not easy to sex a Hamster you know, the guy at the shop just threw the first one he could into a box and you got me.  Alright.  Boo Fucking Hoo.  Get over it.” “But […]

  • The Art of Thinking Clearly

    By A Modern Military Mother on July 18, 2013
    I bought The art of Thinking Clearly by Ralf Dobelli in Basingstoke hospital’s WHSmith last week when the children and I had an hour long wait for the Orthodontist as we were delayed by the traffic on the A303. I am finding it very difficult to put down. It’s been a while since I have been compelled to read. It […]

    By E M Faustus on July 17, 2013
    The Eleventh Bit:  Lots of bits to this aren’t there?  Good for you for sticking with it.  Give yourself a pat on the back.   Clare rested a hand on my elbow.  Nice.  Better than a punch to the throat any day. “How many children do you have?”  She asked. “Just one.  Born by adoption.  I never use the voice […]
