Yeah, that was a great story, with the narrator's tone of voice pitch perfect, and gil's right that you don't have a lot of sympathy for him, miserable old codger. But am I the only one who thinks Torture Emporium sounds like a shop/club with an exclusive clientele, rather than a museum :lol:

And Ali, what is the story behind that peculiar looking tree?

Schedule for next few days:-

5th - Bob Lock
6th - Joanne Thomas
7th - Daniel Kaysen
8th - Peter Tennant

Figured it was time I got in on the action.

Daniel's story is slightly over the 1k limit, but I figured as most everybody else is not using up their 1000 words he could borrow some of the unused words for his. And, contrary to my Ali introduction, just remembered that Daniel has had stories in all three magazines, so he is a Triple Crown holder.

But did Andy send him a personalised mug?

Plenty more slots crying out to be filled, so don't be shy folks in emailing me stuff to whitenoise@ttapress.com with the Subject header 'Advent Calendar'.

Heh heh, thanks for your comments. Although sounds like I should have had fewer eye patches and more black leather eh Pete?! :lol:

Wish I could say that was my Christmas tree, but I just saw it at Chatsworth House and took a piccie. Hmm, wonder what it really is made of...?!

Going to miss two days of adventing now. But it'll mean all the more to read on Monday... :D

Oh Ali, how can you even ask. I grew up during the Diana Rigg "Avengers" years :wink:

Suddenly what went wrong with my internet access last week is making a bit more sense. I really should avoid these online dating sites :roll:

Good story Bob, and I like the way you convey the wonders of cyberspace, the suggestiveness of the terminology/language in the story, but where was Brina back when Whispers was getting hacked every other day?

Glad you enjoyed the story guys :)

Umm... Pete, that site you told me about, Plenty of Fish? Umm... it wasn't an anglers' site... no wonder you caught that virus!

Thanks.

And you were going to drink whiskey to "St James Infirmary Blues" - with extra entertainment? :shock:

Excellent story joanne, but oh so sad.

After I saw Bob's comment I decided to wait until later in the day before reading it, and yeah, not a happy story. Strong emotion and a sort of twisted logic to what the protagonist does, in trying to spare his family the pain he experienced, all of which comes over rather well.

Thanks all for the compliments.

And apologies for the blackness of it. Let's just say I identify. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have thought of it.

I would now like to say that I'd never do anything like that. :oops:

No need to apologise, a good story is a good story. Thank you for it.

Just catching up!!

Joanne - ah, yes that is really sad. A good story though. Bob, yours is really poignant too. Some great images in there. And I loved 'Likewise' .

Isn't it great when you miss a few days and get all the choccies at once?

:D
