owl trivet bad, green hair dye good

I don't know, are chocolate starfish tiresome, rebellious, fussy, nothing worth making a fuss about ... ?

I'm decluttering again. Does anyone want an owl trivet? It's rather ugly. Or a King Penguin on seagulls? Its spine is gone, but the ink drawings are admirable. No? Ah well ...

Harsh how any acheivement at clearing space now is dented by guilt at the overproduction of household waste, another bag of rubbish ... although all the clearing gave me time to catch up on some new media. Menchi's cultural notes only explain a fraction of what was going on in Excel Saga ... and the cut that aired on the Sci-Fi channel missed all the pre-title sequences! Oh and I put some green and yellow highlights in. Damian says it looks like I've been training the dinosaurs to polish my hair.

EDIT: Apparently my hair doesn't look like I've been training dinosaurs to polish it but it does look either a) "very earth-tone, earthmotherish", or b) like George Clooney's. Go me.

I've never understood how you are supposed to contribute a panel (e.g. panel 54) until after you know what panel 53 will be.

schroedinger's continuity
Well, you can do it a few different ways -- you can "bet" on which panel you think'll win and do a sequel to that, try to produce a panel that'd work no matter what won (ooo, challenging!) or hedge your bets, by making a panel that could follow on from a few of them but would be off the mark for others. My one for last week was like that ...

When we were planning the game we were anxious to avoid the story becoming predictable, more narrow. Keeping continuity options open longer looked like it might be a way of doing that ... and also we wanted to encourage people to think about continuity over several panels rather than just in relation to the panel immediately before.

The really important panel for continuity right now -- and the only one that's currently in the past -- is panel 52. 53 is the present, and therefore still open to influence, while 54 is the future, yet to be revealed.

Re: expanding
That said, this week is a bit of a poser. I might just bet. Continuity-wise, I'm actually hoping mine *won't* win.

Not least because I really don't want to write the bun-decorating song.

Owl Trivet?
Need a parking meter? I've got two...and I think one is really enough, maybe. Or perhaps I can offer you a scary "folk art" scarecrow man/thing. I'll throw up a picture of him tonight, if I remember...

Okay, now I *know* you need professional help...
