Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Based on the state of my unmentionables drawer, any briefs would be acceptable. I apparently have little standard and purchase the cheapest, and hence lowest quality, undergarments possible. Since the majority of my life is spent with immense and direct pressure on such flimsy fabric they need all ...

Glad you're here for another year Mr. Pigfender, even if it's against your better judgement. ;)

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Oh no! :( You're going to miss out on the LAST* NIAD EVER! :( (* - just like last year and the three before that). Thanks for letting me know in plenty of time, though. Thanks Pigmeister. My heart skipped a beat, fell to the floor, and now I have to wash, dry, fluff and fold then put it back from w...

I was playing with ripe :lol: Yours: 8. Coarse or indecent; vulgar: the comic's ripe language. Mine: 9. Emitting a foul odor: "The mountains of ripe bushmeat in every camp" Courtesy of The Free Dictioary. Well, however you like your ripeness, it's all good. Just be sure to supply the gas ...

Yup! That's one thing you can count on around here, ripeness. In terms of the humor of some, at least. :P 8)

Re: Guess the Genre! NIAD 2015

It's not! It's a target audience, not a genre (in my head, anyway). "Chick lit" tells me nothing about the Story, the Reality, or the Emotion of the book. http://www.pigfender.com/index.php/2014/06/what-is-a-genre/ Though I razz you about it all the time, Mr. Piggieness, I detest Chick li...

I don't believe that play is the intended activity. A duel to the deatd (per T'Pau) between the writing implements (pen, pencils, crayons, etc) and the clacking keyboards. So, no play will be had. :D

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

No, it is far more medieval than that. Everyone starts at the same moment -- it is just that in different places, clocks say different things -- something about time zones. (Which should really be called 'timekeeping zones', shouldn't they? Because we are not in different zones of time , just diffe...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

I'll post some links to the start and finish times in local timezones later (I'm on vacation at the moment, hence the slightly delayed responses to everything). For now: Start time is (as always) very early in the morning of the Saturday, UK time. So for simplicities sake, lets call that 0:01am Sat...

Re: Guess the Genre! NIAD 2015

Okay, chick lit aside (since I've been duly informed that it isn't a proper genre), I'm goin' for the gusto and choosing a highly suspenseful spy thriller - yup highly suspenseful spy thriller is my genre choice ... I think ... perhaps ... if not then it's gotta be a cozy mystery .... NOT ... oh, si...

Re: Novel-in-a-Day 5: Go Set A NiaD

Piggiemeister, I do have one question about the time. So, that's midnite UK time. Five minutes after midnite would have us on the 17th of October side of things or the 18th of October side of things. I just don't want to arrive a day late or a day early and find no party to be had. If, instead, we w...
