Five Sentence Fiction – “Angles” – 4/18/2013 – Genre: Sci-fi / Humor PG

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This weekAngles

Don’t confuse this with Friday Fictioneers!  That is 100 words from a photo prompt.  Go here for that.  For FSF click on the above pic (after you read my story!).

Five Sentence Fiction – “Angles” – 4/18/2013 – Genre: Sci-fi / Humor PG

“City of Angles”

_________

The darkness gathered around the city as the sun dropped below the horizon and brought out the evil side of things.

He was light itself; a beacon unto others who wanted the light back in their lives and the darkness should banish into the nether from which it had come.

He stood tall; his wings unfurled into such beauty that all who saw him cried and bowed; yet, the darkness remained and confusion struck him like a slap.

The young teen walked slowly toward him; her hand reached into a small brown leather bag and withdrew a protractor, which she held up high for all to see; its shine much less, but dispelled the shadows easily.

“You’re dyslexic, Michael, a horrible speller; be gone for I have what this story asked for.”

Fun Time for Music

I love to listen to different types of music.  My favorites would include funny things done with music.  Since this is for the day after the Super Bowl, I will keep it short and simple.  For your listening pleasure, let me give you several different types of “funny” music / musicians.  Just a listening exercise that I guarantee will get you to laugh, at least, a little.

1) Igudesman & Joo: Nightmare Concert

.

I will survive

.

2) Lily Allen – Smile (language?)

.

3) Mozart  Group – Amadeus Jackson

.

4)  Right Said Fred – I’m Too Sexy (original – suggestive?)

.

5) Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain – Teen-age Dirtbag (Suggestive / Language)

You Don’t Bring Me Flowers

.

Finally, for the intellectuals, something not quite funny, but nice / different:

Ted Talks Presents: Jake Shimabukuro – “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the Ukelele! (followed by a very long commercial – feel free to skip)

.

Namaste,

Scott

What a Day!

I took my daughter out to eat and to see a matinee today. We saw “Hotel Transylvania”. Now, it was cute, very funny, and had a good point to it. There were a total of 6 of us in the theater so that was nice. The film managed to be dumb enough that you didn’t have to compare it to real life at all (animated), but it still managed to pull you into the father/daughter struggle as well as the love interest. I really enjoyed it.  The link to the clip is below.

While I was there, we stopped at the branch office of my bank and I had them cancel the card that was (is?) in the mail and print me out a new one with a new number and all. It works fine.

We ate at “Steak ‘n Shake” – a chain restaurant in the area. I am able to eat there if I choose carefully without overshooting my carbs. They did overload the onions a bit and I paid for that later. Actually, still paying a little for it!

When I got back home I was supposed to meet my buddy for dinner at our usual restaurant. I didn’t call him before I left and he called right after I left for it. He had already called on my cell, but it is usually off unless I am using it to call (long story. Suffice it to say that I forget to charge it). Anyway, he was sick and couldn’t come eat, so I called him when he was late and found out. I went ahead and ate supper.

The restaurant was really packed and busy. They were short-staffed that night by two waitresses and it was a rough night for them to work as I could tell.

I suppose my worst part of it all was that, when I left, it was rainy and dark. Those two things don’t go well with my vision problems. I made it home fine, but the country roads at night in rainy weather are bad if you had great vision.

I got a rejection note from the publisher for one of my stories; however, he told me it was well-written and good and to keep trying to sell it (it was for an anthology and he said it was too much like several they had already selected). He also wanted me to keep sending my stories to them.

I am behind again in posts (49 this time), but I know now I can catch up, so if you have missed my comments, just wait. I will get there.

It has been a long day and, looking back at this post, I imagine it will even be funny to me tomorrow!

Namaste,
