Deep Pencil - The blog of Morgan Bell (author of Sniggerless Boundulations)

 

You have entered the random thinking space of Morgan Bell. These are my musings, things about my life written either off the top of my head or in a completely calculated fashion. This is where i flesh out writing ideas and discuss my life and my opinions.

Author bio: Bell’s short story "It Had To Be Done" was first published in the Newcastle Writers Group Anthology 2012, and her short story "Midnight Daisy" was published by YWCA Newcastle in 2013 as part of the She: True Stories project, with live readings on ABC 1233 in February 2014 and Newcastle Writers Festival in April 2014. Bell contributed a short story to the 2014 Hunter Speculative Fiction Anthology called “The Switch” which is based on Germanic folklore. It is due to be published in May 2014 alongside award-winning authors such as Margo Lanagan and Kirstyn McDermott. In March 2014 Bell's short story "Don't Pay The Ferryman", an anti-travel piece, was shortlisted for the Hunter Writer's Centre Travel Writing Prize 2014. Sniggerless Boundulations is Bell's debut collection of fifteen stories, touching on themes fear, time, aging, anxiety, and jealousy. The work is experimental in form and length, including flash fiction and vignettes, and is an examination of the horrors of life.

RAINBOWS

LOLLYPOPS

GOOD TIMES

hang on . . .

how does that song go?

SUNSHINE . . .

hahaha

ok im on holidays, but ive noticed the Orble homepage has been a bit gloomy so i thought i would spread some cheer!

heres a little story:

im staying with friends and i accidentally spilt red pasta sauce on their white carpet and started to panic and get towels and warm water and detergent to try and scrub it out but it wouldnt budge . . . i thought to myself: this is why i cant have nice things . . . my friend stayed reclined on the lounge not phased at all

"dont worry about it," she said calmly "its only carpet, it will come out the next time the carpets are are cleaned"

this is the kind of chilled out you have to admire!

now lets all sing the song . . .






Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows
by Lesley Gore

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is what I feel when we're together,
Brighter than a lucky penny,
When you're near the rain cloud disappears, dear,
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine.

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
That's how this refrain goes, so come on, join in everybody!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is sure to come your way
When you're in love to stay.

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is what I feel when we're together,
Brighter than a lucky penny,
When you're near the rain cloud disappears, dear,
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine.

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
That's how this refrain goes, so come on, join in everybody!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is sure to come your way
'Cause you're in love, you're in love,
And love is here to stay!

La la la la la la la la la...I'm going to be humming this all day.

As for the carpet, ammonia works but spot test it first.

Aaaaaaw...it's not all doom and gloom Morgan. Did you read postmoderncritic's post about Norway? They just approved same sex marriage. It won't be long before we all catch on.

You know what they say....You can't stop Progressives!

hi Johnny,
it is THE BEST song to get stuck in your head!
i think its the same girl that sang "its my party and ill cry if i want to"
thanks for the carpet cleaning tip, i will pass it on to my host!


hi Ruby,
actually it was your comment to PoMo on her Norway post that partly inspired this bout of positivity!
the homepage and the Daily Orbles from the past week seemed to be a little on the glum and depressing (and antagonistic) side, so short of "fairies" i thought some rainbows and lollypops may be in order!
