A review of Kitkat’s Tales by BlackLOG
I think the term prolific covers the amount of writing Kitkat does as the sole proprietor of Kitkat’s Tales. Over 100 postings since opening the doors just six short months ago. That would be more than two years’ worth of postings for me….The level of excitement that was generated in celebration of the 100th post gave away her youth. It was
Subjects are varied and it is certainly a blog after my own heart in that it covers Kitkat’s life in a very detailed diary form (I’m guessing that Kitkat is possibly a very talkative person). Every couple of days the ups and downs of a Nigerian teenager, recently transported to Houston Texas, play out before the reader. We discover that Kitkat has an issue with Metro hobos who seem to be attracted to her (she is obviously going to have to change her brands of perfume, “Whiff of Tramp”, “Vagabond bouquet”, “O deur Meths” and “Whisky fragrance” which all clearly act as a magnet for any passing hobo…..).
Further delving and you discover that Kitkat is a big fan of Valentine’s day and a firm believer that girls can have a male bestie . For the more mature members of the audience you should note that a “Bestie” is not a popular Man Utd icon from the 1960’s (a decade that KitKat probably regards as truly ancient history, in the same way that us older generations think of cavemen and dinosaurs…..) but your best friend in the wholest, widest, most worldest world in the universe. That is until they do something to upset you and get consigned to the wastepaper bin of life. In sporting terms think of it like being a manager being given a vote of confidence from the Board - it is only a matter of time before the inevitable split…. You will find Kitkat has a rather more optimistic outlook on a bestie….
If I was scoring Kitkat I would have to mark her down slightly for not replying to each and every one of her comments but to be honest that is more my problem than hers (What can I say? I’m “commentary retentive”, I love the cut and thrust of comments so try not to let any go un-answered). I guess if I was such a prolific blogger and received as many comments I would probably not have the time and besides, KitKat’s many followers (or kittens as she cutely calls them) don’t seem to mind. Go check her out and don’t be surprised if you end up being provided with a saucer of milk and a very warm welcome…..
Subsequent to Kitkat dropping out of Blog of War, without saying a word (thank you so much), I would like to say a bit more but hey I did the review so have decided to let it stand as it is.
I’m busy putting the claws away and stepping back from the blog….
Deep breath, think nice thoughts, think nice thoughts….Grrr 10, 9, 8, 7, 6,5,4,3,2,1,
It’s not working…
At this point I would really like to crawl under a stone and wish Blog of War would go away… but I can’t….partly because I’m a stubborn git, partly because it was born out of a blog competition that I entered which started and then stopped and the started again and then stopped etc ….(A crash team was on constant standby) and mainly because three fine bloggers have done such a magnificent job that I have no option but to drag this dead carcass of a competition to its painful conclusion (luckily I now have access to a very experienced crash team - funny how life works out).
Take David and Goliath….did Goliath give up, with such huge odds stacked in his favour that he was inevitably going to lose?* Absolutely not - he played his part and had fun while getting stoned….

How Do You Sleep - by John Lennon - I suspect very well but I had to ask the question....
Tug of War by Paul McCartney - I probably should have used Suicide is painless, apart from not being true, death by blogging hurts a lot....it's the neglect that gets you in the end, that and the pitying glances.....

Some catch up photos from the last couple of weeks. The firts two are from a weekend we spent with our good friends Teach and the Farmer in Linconshire, to celebrate the Farmers 50 years on this Earth. We took a river boate crusie on the Boston Belle. The third shot is Mrs B's parents dog Max from last weekend.
