On Meeting A Stray And A Badger...

My meeting with Stray came via email, following a post about a smear test I seem to recall. It passed without incident.

I met Badger a few weeks later, introduced by Stray via her blog roll. Enjoyable indeed, but still without controversy.

So how I wish I wish I wish I had met them first in the flesh and not the cyber world. As their housemate did. Read it here. And then see if you dare visit them ever again.

PS Not only has Badger won the coveted Post of the Week for her post on Tourette's, but Stray has won the coveted GBA(S)Fiction festival, over at The Moon Topples. Such talent, and all under the one roof.

Blogosphere has proved to be a remarkable place for finding talent and meeting people!

"So how I wish I wish I wish I had met them first in the flesh and not the cyber world."

Perhaps I didn't manage to convey fully the sheer terror of the situation...! [Note to self - must try harder.]

I want to live in their house too ... *sigh*

Forget single glazing and one wood burner. I have two spare rooms, double glazing, central heating, ample paved driving (as opposed to a dirt track in the woods), an oven that doesn't resemble the witches in Hansel and Grettel, and I don't own an axe. Hmm but maybe Manchester isn't too handy for the London commute

Stray said...

ha ha. I am still sooooo amazed that anyone could be genuinely scared of little me! Little tiny me!

And Badger! Who is scared of the dark and of spiders and is about the least scary person I have ever met.

Should I be capitalising on this? I wonder. Perhaps I could be type cast as an evil genius in the next James Bond? I'm sure that would pay quite well!

Come and live with us then! There is still room for you Cas and Ms M in the octagon, with guitar hero on tap and lots of cuddles from Roooobeeee

Hey Atyllah, yes indeed. And you a hen. Who on earth would've guessed?

Hey But why?, great name, by the way. No, I was chuckling all the way through it. But then, I think I know that Stray and Badger are not really axe murderers. I think, anyway.

Hey Caroline, yes, me too. Doesn't it sound lovely. (Apart from the lack of heating of course. In winter I don't think I would ever leave my bed. Which, come to think of it, sounds pretty good actually.)

Hi there Brum, are you looking for a lodger? I quite miss the old place sometimes.

Hey Stray, evil Bond genius! Yes! I think you would be perfect. Stroking Ruby, instead of a cat perhaps. I have set my sights on the Octagon - I just have a few loose ends to tie up here in Yorkshire, but shouldn't be too difficult to find someone to adopt my husband and children. They are all quite lovely.

Hi Miss M, your meetings have just blown 'Nestor's Law' sky high.

Congratulations to Stray and Badger, and thanks for flagging their work!

But Why? said...

Ms Melancholy, thankyou. I seem to have had no end of new visitors dropping in on me. And please feel free to drop the formality and call me "But".

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey Bindi, you will have to enlighten us all as to the meaning of 'Nestor's Law' now. Please don't leave us in suspense x

Hey But, glad for the visitors. Hope you remembered to sweep the hallway x
