Holiday Twabble

A few years back I linked a number of drabbles and twabbles I had written. So a new one for the holiday season and the relaunch of the Drabblecast: “All the reindeer finally loved him. They all shouted with glee. Rudolph grinned at them all. He released his tentacles.” Also in writing this I reread the old contributions and realised “Different” would be better if I changed just one word (see if you can spot it): Different (HP Lovecraft theme) “Every pregnancy is different,” Jan says reassuringly.

The Yellow Mug

This evening I cleaned up my kitchen. Even seasoned my cast-iron pan with some flax oil I overpaid for today. And I must admit it came out really nice. Yes, I watched about a dozen (two dozen?) YouTube videos on seasoning cast iron pans yesterday evening, what’s your point? Anyway, my clean kitchen. Go me. Feeling rather successful I decided to reward myself with a cup of hot chocolate. Unfortunately that was… not quite so successful.

Some Drabbles and Twabbles

A number of years ago I was introduced to the Escape Pod and Drabblecast podcasts. And when reading up more about them I discovered the Drabblecast forums and the amusing Drabbles (100 word stories) and Twabbles (100 char stories). I even got a few on the show and thought I’d put them here. Note that the drabblecast is for weird stories… Four times they took him. Every time an anal probe.
