30 Minus 2 Days of Insanity

It's that time again. My brother Steve's birthday? Yeah, that too. Happy Birthday Happy Wanderer.  Meanwhile, February is almost upon us and that means another round of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing - or as some would call it "Pass the Vodka" - as coordinated by the lovely and talented Montreal blogger extraordinaire Nicky Eff. I think the equally talented but not nearly as lovely Cheesy Mike may have a role in this too. They both are the well-known and much-loved proprietors of We Work For Cheese. Although, coming back with another round of this writing exercise they are really starting to push their luck.

What do they have in store for us this time around?

1. Gouda
2. It was no accident
3. Temporary insanity
4. When Hell freezes over
5. The empty bottle
6. Scatterbrained
7. Hint, hint
8. Damn
9. Dylan
10. Zombies
11. Succubus
12. One bite
13. Incommunicado
14. It has to be aliens
15. My ears are ringing
16. Shakespearean English
17. I faked it
18. Liars
19. Tastes like chicken
20. Chaos
21. Yes, I made that
22. It’s only a dream
23. There are things
24. And then she said
25. Social media
26. Naked and lost
27. How did you find out?
28. And then my brain exploded

That empty bottle in prompt 5 doesn't appear soon enough for my liking, nor does prompt 28. These prompts will be quite the challenge for many of us participating. The upside is I usually post about two items a week on my blog. If I write every day for 28 days, that'll take me well into 2015 without writing another word.

Like a lamb being led to the slaughter I have blindly accepted the challenge posed by Nicky and Mike. But this year is going to be different. I'm going to do something with this challenge I've never done before. What do I mean by that? You'll have to come back February 1st to find out.

Be there or be square.

Godspeed, my friend. Godspeed.

I imagine "God" will be one of the expletives I use early on and from there it will use go downhill.
Nicky said…
Ooooh now I'm very curious as to what you are going to do. And it was all CheesyMike's fault, btw. I had nithing to do with it.
nonamedufus said…
Well some of the prompts are pretty cheesy but somehow I don't think they're Mike's fault. Oh, and as to what I'm going to do? I'm going to write in the nude. You're probably very thankful this isn't 30 days of photos, eh?

On February 29th, the theme is "Stubborn Fool".
Shawn Ohara said…
I would hate to see those exposures.
mike said…
I may take the blame for 1, maybe 2, and POSSIBLY 3 of the prompts, but this whole sick, sick, exercise is all CheesyNicky's idea. And it's her fault.
Wow! What a tease you are, Dufus! To leave us hanging like that without telling us what your master plan is? Outrageous!
nonamedufus said…
Not much longer to wait, Paula. Then all shall be revealed.
nonamedufus said…
Um, Shawn, there is no February 29th this year.
nonamedufus said…
I knew it! (Which ones can I blame you for Mike?)
nonamedufus said…
You're just being negative, Shawn.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
