  7. dustymuffin says:

    1.How did you find the ‘mark?

    I wanted the lyrics for ‘De la Rey’, to see what all the fuss was about. Google pointed me this way.

    2.What lured you to stay?

    The remark ‘God Save the Queen’ prompted FGB to chirp “Why? Is the old imperial cow sick?” I’ve been hooked ever since, and it’s getting better all the time (despite this week’s hiccup)

    About 5 days. You lot scare me.

    4.How long have you been here?

    About a month and a half

    5.Have you met any ‘markers offline? Who?

    No, but each time I go into public spaces now, I wonder if anyone I see is a blogger here.

    6.Which ‘marker would you most like to meet offline?

    Any one of you – as long I can keep my identity unknown *smarmy grin* All information will be used as evidence against you…

    7.Which ‘marker would you most like to write like?

    Most of the regulars are great – easy to read and funny. No particular preferences though

    8.Who should flippin’ write more blogs, dammit?

    Haven’t seen anything from Jessop for a while. Looking forward to his next chapter.

    9.What are some of your favourite ‘mark posts? Links please!

    Just one off the top of my head:

    Trip: 23/4/2007: I’m a great believer in child psychology. I even have a large coffee-table sized book on the subject…and every time the kids give me shit… I donner them with it.

    Loads more – especially from Trip, St K, Sili, Mica and Arbchick

    i write what i like

  18. dex says:

  19. so you can find a copy of Q HERE and other books by the collective luther blisset/wu ming

    Or just click here for the pfd

    so it’s a spy novel, but like none you have ever read before. nice mix of pulp and style.

  21. dex says:

    I like to read on the loo. Having a stack of A4’s could get messy.

    Shit. I said that out loud again, didn’t I…

  22. morticia says:

    i’m trying to get bored, so i can go play with Diablo, and you’ve reeled me in again.
    the reading on the pooper thing really mystifies me – it’s an ongoing issue in this house. i cant even say it’s a male thing – my she-buddies do it too!

  23. dex says:

    hey… I’m sure Mort spoke IN CAPITALS… OH YES, TERRY PRATCHETT.

    Well, what do you do on the loo then?

  24. morticia says:
