And I see by the carnival schedule that the next edition, in two weeks’ time, is to be hosted at some place called Cubik’s Rube. Whoever that guy is, let’s hope he doesn’t screw it up and bring the Circle’s illustrious history of creative brilliance to a crashing end.
Well, I’m due to be sent some sort of “guidelines and instructions package” at some point, but I’ll take a stab at the initial bit now. I’m hosting the next edition of the carnival two weeks from now, on Thursday September 10th. If you have anything you want to submit to it (which you think is appropriate based on the guidelines on this page here), then email it in to me, ideally not leaving it until the last minute on Wednesday September 9th to do so.
My traditional instructions for constructing my email address are as follows: ‘cubiksrube’, then that little curly ‘at’ sign, then ‘hotmail’, then a dot, then ‘co’, then another dot, then ‘uk’. I can’t rationally justify my belief that describing it obliquely like that helps to prevent some kind of automated spam-bot from noticing it and bombarding me with trash, but it’s what I’ve seen other people do, and when did blindly following the herd without understanding the reasoning behind your actions ever do anyone any harm?
Heckuva skeptical attitude right there.
Sorry I didn’t get anything posted yesterday, incidentally, but my evening was unexpectedly diverted by the plight of three drag queens travelling across Australia in a sparkly pink van. It was more fun than I thought it would be, actually.
