1755. The spice of life

Variety is the spice of life so I thought I’d do something I’ve never done before and interview a fellow blogger. He also works as a part-time actor in minor films in Hollywood. Thanks for volunteering to be interviewed, Dick.

My f!%#*&!!% pleasure. You’re f!%#*&!!% welcome.

So what made you start blogging?

It was my f!%#*&!!% wife at the f!%#*&!!% time f!%#*&!!% suggested it. She was doing the f!%#*&!!% dishes one f!%#*&!!% evening when she said “Why the f*!@ don’t you do a f!%#*&!!% blog and get out from under my f!%#*&!!% feet?”

I said “Why the f*!@ not? So here I f!%#*&!!% am!

And what made you decide to do a blog dedicated to the cultivation of sweet potatoes?

Well, f*!@ me, sweet potatoes are f!%#*&!!% cool. A lot of f!%#*&!!% people don’t realize just how sweet f!%#*&!!% sweet potatoes really f!%#*&!!% are. You can f!%#*&!!% stick a f!%#*&!!% sweet potato in the f!%#*&!!% embers of a f!%#*&!!% campfire and f*!@ me! if it’s not f!%#*&!!% cooked. That’s f!%#*&!!% extraordinary.

How did it feel to get over one million followers?

It felt f!%#*&!!% great. I sent my f!%#*&!!% wife at the f!%#*&!!% time out to get f!%#*&!!% take-away to f!%#*&!!% celebrate and when she f!%#*&!!% came home I discovered I had one million and f!%#*&!!% two f!%#*&!!% followers. It was f!%#*&!!% unbelievable.

Thanks, Dick, for that enlightening interview. Not a word wasted.

F*!@ yeah. I’m f!%#*&!!% going to f!%#*&!!% talk about it when I f!%#*&!!% get my f!%#*&!!% next f!%#*&!!% Oscar if the f!%#*&!!% powers that f!%#*&!!% be let me f!%#*&!!% squeeze a f!%#*&!!% word in.

392. An Oscar for Gillian


Gillian couldn’t believe her name had been called. She knew she had been nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress, but to be named! To actually win! And up against such talent, such as Louise Barrow and Harriet Nankivell!

If she’d known, she would’ve worn something different. She had practised a sweet smile all week. She’d use it when her loss was announced. And the winner is… smile! Smile! But no! It was HER name called. She swept up the steps towards the microphone.

Oh if only she had prepared a speech. But she hadn’t, so sure was she of failure.

I would like to thank Jane and Dorothy and Roger. And also Roy, Peter and Christine. And Alex. Cecil, you charmer! And also thank Clare and Matt and Daphne and Josephine (Jo you’re a wonder!) and Eileen and Ernest and Ethel. Maud, Ross, Gladys, Myrtle, Hazel, Leonard, Ivy, Molly, Tony, Stan, Sue, Lance, Fran, Marianne, Matt (again), Danny, Lionel, Cody and Shay. The list goes on. And Phillip, Francis, Eric, Arthur, Ellen, Shannon, Len and Joy. Sophia, Jackson, Aiden, Liam, Lucas, Noah, Mason, Emma, Olivia, Isabella, Mia, Ava, Lily, Zoe, Emily, Chloe, Layla, Madison, Jayden, Ethan, Jacob, Jack, Caden, Logan, Madelyn, Benjamin, Michael, Caleb, Ryan, Alexander, Abigail, Aubrey, Charlotte, Amelia, Ella, Kaylee, Avery, Aaliyah, Elijah, James, William, Oliver, Connor, Luke, Brayden, Jayce, Henry, Carter, Dylan (did I say that already?), Hailey, Hannah, Addison, Riley, Harper, Aria, Arianna, Mackenzie, Lila, Evelyn, Adalyn, Grace, Brooklyn, Ellie, Anna, Kaitlyn, Isabelle, Sophie, Scarlett, Natalie, Leah, Sarah, Nora, Mila, Elizabeth, Lillian, Kylie, Audrey, Gabriel, Joshua, Nicholas, Isaac, Owen, Nathan, Grayson, Eli, Landon, Andrew, Max, Samuel, Gavin, Wyatt, Christian, Hunter, Cameron, Evan, Charlie, David, Sebastian, Joseph, Dominic, Anthony, Colton, John, Lucy, Maya, Annabelle, Makayla, Gabriella, Elena, Victoria, Claire, Savannah, Peyton, Maria, Alaina, Kennedy, Stella, Liliana, Allison, Samantha, Keira, Alyssa, Reagan, Molly, Alexandra, Violet, Charlie, Julia, Sadie, Ruby, Eva, Alice, Eliana, Taylor, Callie, Penelope, Camilla, Bailey, Kaelyn, Alexis, Kayla, Katherine, Sydney, Lauren, Jasmine, London, Bella, Adeline, Caroline, Vivian, Juliana, Gianna, Skyler, Jordyn, Tyler, Zachary, Thomas, Julian, Levi, Adam, Isaiah, Alex, Aaron, Parker, Cooper, Miles, Chase, Muhammad, Christopher, Blake, Austin, Jordan, Leo, Jonathan, Adrian, Colin, Hudson, Ian, Xavier, Camden, Tristan, Carson, Jason, Nolan, Riley, Lincoln, Brody, Bentley, Nathaniel, Josiah, Declan, Jake, Asher, Jeremiah, Cole, Mateo, Micah, and Elliot.

Gillian got a standing ovation. All agreed: it was the best (and most interesting) acceptance speech of the evening.

Oh! And I almost forgot! Charan, Chandu, Chaytanya, Chabrseh…
