Why I’m not pulling a Lebowitz just yet…

writers blockade

I thought it might be a good idea to revisit the blog with a brief ‘I’m still here!’ message and some evening musings.

Now, as I said in a post from a few months ago, I haven’t gone anywhere, it’s just that life sometimes catches up with you and some things fade into the background. Or, you know, possibly, you get lazy or don’t find enough motivation to keep a steady writing schedule. I mean, who knows, it could be anything. Possibly a bit of everything in a delicious mix.

Just so you know…

I know I’ve been a bad, bad hmmologist lately, but hmms don’t grow on trees and my stash was running low. You could say I was running out of hmms to give. But, let me assure you that the hmm hunt has resumed. So i cordially invite you to stick around 🙂


Hmmology – episode 17: Everybody wants to be a… dog?

Brush attack

My true form. People – and, apparently, most other animals as well – talk a lot about things as if they knew what the hell they actually meant. In fact, what happens is that they’re stupid. Irredeemable so, most of them. Dumb parental fornicators, as they are known in more refined circles. Now, I still possess some dangling bits of decency, thus I shall take my rightful place in the above chastised group of cretins. But, now that I’ve admitted to and embraced my being an utter idiot, I feel I’ve earned the right to expand this topic a bit. Thusly ends my full disclaimer.

Hmmology – episode 16: Life goals and some other monkey business

‘You can’t have I WANNA LIVE LONGER as a life goal.’

‘Why not?’

‘Because… that’s cheating,’ I said. ‘And also, it doesn’t solve anything, really. Once you’ve got that, you still have to find something to do with yourself before you die.’ Continue reading “Hmmology – episode 16: Life goals and some other monkey business”

Hmmology – episode 15: Borrowing beyond your means

To get the full story, start with EPISODE 1

I suddenly felt the absurdity of my current situation. There I was, trapped in a dog’s body, a creature able to borrow human bodies whenever it saw fit to do so, yet somehow I was unable to claim back my original form. Questions just kept coming at me from every direction, which is obviously a problem, since they then end up in a multiple thinking collision on what would have been the information highway if you’d only invested in building one for your brain, instead of endlessly watching reruns. So I just made each one pay an exorbitant road tax and things cleared up real quick. Continue reading “Hmmology – episode 15: Borrowing beyond your means”

Hmmology – episode 14: Bugasplaining

Buga explained:

‘Ok, so let’s say, everything goes back to normal, the heroes resume their heroics. There will still be so many other people whose problems aren’t going to be solved by simply saving the world.’ Continue reading “Hmmology – episode 14: Bugasplaining”

Hmmology – episode 13: The importance of being important…er

seagulls are bastards

To get the full story, start with EPISODE 1

Now, Bifidus is on the tiny side, as the natural world goes. And it’s quite difficult for small animals to choose a human form that’s sturdy enough to resist the onslaught of their temper tantrums. If you add to that the sound of your inner clock ominously ticking away, you get a sense of the barely contained explosion that is Bifidus. Continue reading “Hmmology – episode 13: The importance of being important…er”

Hmmology – episode 12: Sartorial angst

Ah, the job center! The place where you need to tread through only ankle-deep hope. A place normally reserved for those unfortunate souls who thought majoring in Humanities would be a good idea. Now, chock full of former super heroes who’ve suddenly discovered that they’ve always had a passion for gardening or carpentry or some such. Continue reading “Hmmology – episode 12: Sartorial angst”

Hmmology – episode 11: Nibbles

Mr and Ms Sheeple

To get the full story, start with EPISODE 1

‘OK, so let’s say we kind of have an ally now. How do we get the ball rollin’?’ Bifidus asked, snatching some cat treats from me. Oh, and by the way, if you were wondering why we – a hamster and a dog… a hamster and a man – were snacking on cat nibbles, know this: cat treats are the animal world’s cocaine. Continue reading “Hmmology – episode 11: Nibbles”

Hmmology- episode 10: Cotton, button and the high life

‘Well, gentle…men?,’Bifidus seemed like a confusing apparition even for the more bohemian type like Buga, `if you’re looking for advice in the saving the day department, I’m afraid I’m not your gal. Not anymore. Not since the good old days…` Continue reading “Hmmology- episode 10: Cotton, button and the high life”
