21st Century Boi

Yeah, cause I'm down with this wicked kewl new tech-stuff! Just because it took me three days to figure out how to pick up my answerphone messages on my ancient brick of a Nokia (see, if you hit 1 and then the Call/Enter/Thingumy button in the centre, it picks up the last number dialled, or that called you, or something; but -- aha! -- if you just hit the 1 and hold it down, that's when it calls the answerphone), no, just because I'm a cretin when it comes to these newfangled landlineless phone things -- that doesn't mean I'm not on the cutting edge with these ePods and i-mail thingumies.

*Ahem*

Yes, OK, I'm a Luddite. That's why I'm mucho happy that Jason Lundberg will be podcasting my story "The Last Shift" on his "Lies and Little Death", um, podcast thing, sometime in Spetember / October. I'm looking forward to hearing it. Of course, there's the mischievous side of me that's really looking forward to hearing poor Jason try to do a Scottish accent. All I can suggest is he watch Trainspotting over and over again for the next month or so, and try and expunge all memory of Scotty from Star Trek. Heh.

A Luddite? I started reading Vellum three days ago, and I have to tell ye, I'd never have guessed!

Just wanted to say it's a cracking book, and though I'm only halfway through, I'm waiting to get tore into the next one!

Actually, I was planning on using Mike Myers' Fat Bastard character as my accent template, but now that you mention it, yeah, Scotty is starting to appeal to me, yeah... :)
