Wrote four columns today

Posted February 15, 2016 into House keeping by John Birmingham

I probably shoudn't have done that. I probably should have written the second last chapter of Cairo instead. But they backed a truckload of money up to my door.

What could I do?

*tears our last of hair, rends sack cloth*

WHAT COULD I DOOOOO?

Well, now you can afford sackcloth with a higher thread count.

Yeah, but the article you wrote in The Age about Brownless and Lyons was effin' awesome. Poignant, and to the point. And hopefully read widely before the tabloid media goes into full saw-toothed sado-orgasmic meltdown over this (as you so succinctly put it) septic mess. Whilst they are media personalities, and part of the social contract of fame is for disection of one's personal life, I feel deeply sorry for all involved, as their individual and collective hurt will not be any less. Because after all, they are still just fallible humans like you and me.

If you delayed writing the second last chapter, does that mean you haven't written the last chapter either?

You could always ask the aliens to help you out. Warney seems to be on top of it. : )

Have a drink and reconsider all of the choices you have made over the course of your life?

Is that one drink per choice and how far back should one start the drinking?

Just asking for a friend I once chose to hang out with.

Difficult question to answer. Some choices require more than one drink. Sometimes many more than one. For example, my decision to approach a southern cassowary (big emu, right mate?) to pet it on its head. Five drink minimum just to compensate for the social embarrassment associated from running from a giant predatory chicken while screaming like a little girl. That thing wanted to kill me.

I was once attacked by a peacock while trying to take one of his non-predatory chicken girlfriends for fresh egg purposes. Blood was drawn but I still got the girl.

I have a theory that Cassowary's are the only birds that remember being dinosaurs, and they are really pissed that they aren't giant lizards any more.
It would explain their penchant for kicking the shit out of absolutely everything.

I'll send you my address. Next time the cash truck backs up you can redirect it down here and get on with your work in peace.
