Now, I know I haven’t done much here lately. Missed me?
I’m in the process of clambering back on the horse. I’m back into school, Irvine Welsh speaks at the Wheeler Centre tomorrow, hopefully next week I’ll be having some writerly researchy experience with some people from Streat, and I’ve been writing a whole lot, so more of my own work might start appearing… Also back into Yartz filming next week and hopefully my first on-screen appearance on Monday. In the meantime, here’s today’s Teaser Tuesday post!
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
” ‘Cyclops, the men you snatched with such brutal force
and ate within your cave were surely not
the comrades of a coward. You have caused
much grief; and it returns to haunt you now:
you did not hesitate; hard heart, you ate
your guests within your house; therefore lord Zeus
has joined with other gods to batter you’ ”
-from Homer’s “The Odyssey”

I LOVE the Cyclops scenes – it’s just a matter of time before sharpened and burning sticks come into it…
Awesome stuff. There’s nothing like a story about a bunch of psychos sailing the world, killing and shagging everything they meet. Bless the Ancient Greeks, say I. Bless them.

Bless them indeed! I’m up to book 21, so only 3 more to go. I want closure, or as much as those nymphomanic selfish vengeful bastards can give me. I just want Odysseus to win.
Irvine Welsh tomorrow, you are going, yes?

Up for a drink after?

Well some of my boyfriend’s friends are coming, I’m not sure yet if they’ve got plans for after. Probably just drinking anyway, so you’re welcome to come along. I’ll see you there, bearded one!
