Shameless Self-Promotion

"Good not-day-nor-night evening, salutations and welcome to the transmission of us. Tonight we will be using the english - no other - language to make conversational discussionable commentry on my new baronial and majestic inscribing of opus-creating text. It contains, yes, yes, it does, it comprises many, many divisions and sections, from the prolegomenon, that's right - prolegomenon - through to the noted feet at its hindermost part. In the course of my august and grandiose personal narrative, i set forth, not back, to record the peregrination that all my born days have availed itself of. The availability and, indeed, its puchasableness, is in multitudinous and multifarious merchants and vendors of splendiferous collections of printed utterances."

"Yes, he is talking about his autobiography and you can buy it at your local bookseller."

(This was originally on 6S, but I have decided to repost some of them on my blog over the next few weeks. This one was the best fun to write. Aren't words cool?)

Haha! ( I would stick the pen up my nose before offering it to him to sign my book copy)

Good ol' 6s stuff!

Michael Solender said...

Fun and bizarre all at the same time. Cool write Paul.

Erin Cole said...

Cool words...fuzzy mind. Always good to dig up writes.

David Barber said...

I love a short that makes me get the dictionary out. Great piece Paul.

Thank you all. This is inspired by my other Uncle Stephen (Fry, this time, not King). He uses the language so very well.

Um, Jodi...I think I would just go for the signature - that sounds painful.
Michael - bizarre IS fun!
Erin - fuzzy mind? My work here is done!
David - took more than a dictionary to write this. Don't even know if all those words are in the dictionary!!

I, too, dig the fuzziness of it... And I do think I dug it the first time around. Thanks for dusting it off... Those sixes were fun.

Anthony - thanks mate...I enjoyed that piece a lot. Will have another one up shortly.
