Shouldn't this species of data be presented on The Roger Godpleton Memorial "Thin Ice Awards" Thread?

Planet of the Apes should have ended with Chuck on his knees, crying his eyes out in the shadow of Liberty. Everything else, whilst often enjoyable, is entirely superfluous.


And you, you're just baiting me now ain't ya!

We did. But we didn't get a crap Season 2 inbetween or instead of, is what I'm saying. The film capped it off well, for me, a second or third season might have been a bit samey. Of course, they might have been aresome - but the very possibility of mediocre or rubbishy seasons of Firefly means I'm erring on the side of caution.

I think some things are the perfect length; Babylon 5, Farscape and The Shield spring to mind. Then there's things that are too short but might be the perfect length as well. Who's to say that Season Two of Firefly wouldn't have been utter folly or that Season Three of Sapphire and Steel would not have left us wanting more?

Ahem. Anyway, Planet of the Apes, "we blew it up, us bastards, and the apes took over because they were ace and we were shit." Boom. We get it. Move on.

Thanks, all.

I have quite a physical job, working outside, gardening, fixer-uppering and whatnot, so I'm getting plenty of fresh air and varied exercise. I'm definitely not as strong as I used to be but I'm stronger than I was six months ago. This 50% thing might well be old data - it's annoying, the things I forget to ask.

Of course, the doctors' solution is pharmaceuticals. Ramipril. Stops the heart swelling up as it tries to increase its capacity (you what?), it might melt your kidneys (you fucking what??) but don't worry, because if it does we have a tablet for that, too (oh for...).

I still can't believe I saved up to buy a bloody yearly prescription to this crap. I didn't use any of it last time, save for the aspirin and fish oil, and I felt better quicker. But then it happens again and this time I'm doing it their way (got to give the buggers a chance, right?) and it's taking forever. Is it because this was a more serious thing or because of all these drugs in my system? Maybe it's all in my mind. I have no idea.

Anyhoo, I'm aiming to be around for a lot longer, yet, whichever way I go. That said, I know the only certainty about my future is that it ends - the ultimate minor impediment. Might be another century from now, might be tomorrow. I don't want to die, I'm even a little afraid of it (in the same way that I'm a little afraid of the sea, that time when you come face to face with its Power; a sudden wave on the beach that lifts you off your feet or hanging onto something when your boat lurches like crazy), but one day it will be in front of me, like the first day at school, the first sexual encounter, the first parachute jump - that kind of fear. The kind of fear that tends to have exhilaration on the other side - but might not. So I'd like to put it off for as long as possible but, if I can't, say lavvie.  Because I'll be cacking myself, hoping that my parachute's going to open...

Apparently, my heart's only working at about 50% capacity due to the damage it sustained during the last event. No wonder I'm struggling at work (had to get help carrying a storm-broken tree limb away today, should have been able to do it myself) and don't love anybody any more.

Feels like I'm on my way out.

Luckily, I'm too dumb/stubborn/romantic/awkward to lie down and quit. I mean, who the Hell's going to piss you lot off so adroitly if I kick the bucket, eh?

Cheers, Hawkie, much appreciated.

I read your post on The Writers' Block thread - you should post a story here. It's what I started this thread for, so all us writers could post work in a friendly environment and maybe get some constructive feedback.

Thanks.

I come across as a twat so often that I sometimes forget I'm actually a really nice bloke! :D
