Superstars of blogging

Sorry that there haven't been many blog posts lately. I realise that this is tantamount to a failure at life. There are books and posters to ship and I am full of high anxiety. I have to go and pick up the posters tomorrow, but I've had a phone call to say that they're very heavy and I may fall over under their mighty weight. So to prepare for my new life as a 2D man I am re-reading Flat Stanley.



There should be a Scary Go Round Flat Stanley project: a FLAT SHELLEY project! Unfortunately my mind is too tired to know what form this might take.

A Flat Shelley project is an absolutely brilliant idea! That is something I would jump at the chance to partake in.

Would this involve breast reduction techniques or am I way way way off target?

That is an interesting blast from the past....

I seem to remember flat Stanley partaking of generously discounted travel fares by slipping himself into a large envelope and being posted to his destination. This, of course, is a direct tibute to the Velvet Underground's spoken-word classic 'The Gift' in which a jilted lover mails himself to his girlfriend and is tragically trepanned to death by said girlfriend who attempts to open the crate with a drill. I do not know where shelley would fit into this, but I feel she would frown on any attempt to defraud the postal service (the service, not the band).

I think some other kid had that book at school. It looked interesting and I wanted to read it but I never did, and I'd forgotton all about it until now.
