[NEWS] The Sunday Spew (18th May 2014)

AKA IT’S ALLIIIIIIIVVVVE.

 

Well hello there. Some of you may know (many of you will not) that unfortunately, just after my birthday, I was recalled to my home planet to participate in urgent peace talks. To make the long journey and to preserve my youthful glow, I was frozen in carbonite. After single-handedly reuniting the warring nations of my planet I then travelled to Risa to recover from my hibernation sickness. I was also blind from the carbonite when I saved my planet.*

...

Yes, they have palm trees on Risa. Shut up.

Once I’d had my fill of tropical cocktails and the smell of other people’s toe cheese, I came home, only to find that the world had curiously continued to spin in my absence. It took me two whole days to get over this fact but it took me longer to get over the season finale of Once Upon A Time, to be fair. It’s all about perspective.

I have so much real news to share and I will do so soon, I promise. I’m still on pesky Risian time, but I’m planning a nice recap post wherein I’ll rip apart all of the shows and movies I’ve been watching, and tell you all about my new Dragon Age obsession. If you see me in the bushes over the next couple of days stalking you and your old posts please, pay me no heed. Until then, I’ll leave you with this Pug pic that Luke sent me and subsequently blew my fragile little mind.

OMG IT'S A PUG IN PUG SLIPPERS. INPUGTION!

OMG IT’S A PUG IN PUG SLIPPERS. INPUGTION!

P.S. I’m very touched by and appreciative of every single message and mail I received during my “vacation” from reality. Please know the love and support of this community is why I’m back.

    • Thanks Tom! :D Ahh, here and there. ;)

      Well, most recently I was in Portugal, but the majority of my LOA was because of that pesky RL stuff that creeps up every now and then. How have you been? I’m going through my blogroll to catch up with everyone, so I’ll be over soon.

      • Yeah good thanks! How long has it been, seems like ages!

        Come check out my posts, get involved in the Movies and Music Cafe communal screenplay! You have until tomorrow to vote what genre you want it to be. The post will explain all! 😊👍

  3. It’s a good thing that I didn’t have my web cam on when I got the email notice that you had posted a new blog. If I had, the whole world would have seen my happy dance. That might have been enough to put the entire space-time continuum out of commission permanently.

    SOOOO glad that you are back V. Words truly can’t express my happiness!

  6. When asked about Verbal Spew’s absence, Bryan Cranston had this to say on the matter:

    “You’re not fooling anybody when you say that what happened was a “natural disaster,”. You’re lying! It was not an earthquake, it wasn’t a typhoon! Because what’s really happening is that you’re hiding something out there! And it is going to send us back to the Stone Age! ”

    Welcome back, Miss Spew. It’s been far too long.

    • Nice one Sean :D. I dropped by earlier on but it looks like you’ve been away too? Nothing since March. The book out yet?

      Like

      • Yeah, I went to Oz and NZ for about a month shortly after that post and have been in a bit of a writing funk ever since… However, I am pleased to say that after countless edits, proofs, re-edits, typeset changes… the book will be available from next week!

        I’m hoping that the eBook might be out later this week too. But for the moment, the paperback is available to pre-order.

        Hopefully people aren’t disappointed.

        • That’s brilliant news. I can’t fookin wait to read it. Have to decide now whether I want to wait for paperback or just nab the ebook. I wish you every success Sean, but I genuinely don’t think you need it. Your blog is a superb advertisement for your future work.

          • Aw thank you so much V. This was such a lovely comment; you totally made my day.

            As for the format, I’m afraid I can’t help you out, my dear. I’m really not a fan of eBooks BUT… they’re cheaper, will be physically with you so much quicker than a paperback and erm… oh no wait, that was all I had!

            Like

            • You’re very welcome. I think I’ll order the physical copy, that way I can point to the cover and tell people, “I knew this guy before he was famous”, like a hipster. Then I’d add, “He commented on my blog.”

    • I sent it via Risian masseuse courier, although it was by economy transport so you might want to give it a few light years. You still post every day! :o That’s a lot of posts for me to read ;D. Thanks mate, good to be back.

      • It was hard the first few weeks–I would wake up in the middle of the night, covered in sweat, shaking, and painfully craving the vaguely confused face of a pug in a ridiculous costume. During these moments, I would tumble out of bed, sink to my knees, claw at the sky, and cry, “Why have you forsaken me, V?!” But after that, I managed to get by on the occasional pug Google search. But thank God you’re back. It’s just not the same as a Spew post.
