"...ah, signs of life..." said the goblin feeling that if that there was one thing the humans did well, it was "greed" but little did they know that they were dealing with a black-belt "last post" poster, "...post at your peril humans..." he softly warned them without him even reaching across to his coffee, he was fast

the goblin simply understood that if the "last post" thread was locked, that it was just like rain stopping play, no one would actually think that the weather had won, only that the game would now have to be played elsewhere

meanwhile, back at CIA headquarters agent Joe is carefully monitoring  Al Qaida's secret website at his desk, he thinks "...where's mac with my coffee then..." as he starts reading through the new posts for subliminal messages, reads: "infidel, may a thousand scorpions sit on your bum, your goblin days are numbered, this is my "last post" thread, it is written", then agent Joe looks up at agent McCoy who has come with his coffee, says "...you take over mac, I'm beat, I need a break..." turning to the second screen with showing the CIA site, he sips his coffee, feels better, clicks "new posts" and writes: "listen goblin, there's no way this thread is yours buddy", somehow the goblin is always supportive, he just likes sending people up he felt

(the goblin thanked fido for passing then, and liked fred's cartoon very much)

which was the moment the spacecraft landed and a little green alien said "...take me to your leader...", the goblin replied "...well, I don't know if he's actually the one you want and Mrs Rice is busy too, but a word of advise don't mention the housing crisis, health insurance, the price of petrol, global warming, the troops in Iraq, the deficit, gunlaws, detentions, torture and the exchange rate, second thoughts would you like Larry King or Jerry Springer instead..." to which the alien scratched his head, got back on his spaceship and whizzed away not quite sure what to make of the humans then, or the goblin for that matter

the goblin simply understood that once the thread was closed by someone it became a book, “...ah but I don't want to be a book, I am still very much alive...” declared the goblin who had fallen into a book a few times but had always restarted elsewhere

meanwhile back at coronation street's Rovers Return, "...oh knees up mother brown, knees up mother brown, another stout with your chip butty goblin, hows that anthropological report going then..." the bucksum barmaid asks over the counter where the goblin types away next to her untouched offerings "...well I'll get round to eating them later(lying), btw do you have any coffee by any chance..." asked the goblin half in prayer to a somewhat bewildered barmaid rubbing the stubble on her chin as she tries to recollect "...eh, coffee now is it, um, I'll go down to the cellar luv, do you know what the bottle looks like...", "...no that's alright, I was..." as they both suddenly gasped as they saw a policebox appear by the dart's board where out pops a man "...hello, I am the Doctor, I say, could I have a chip butty too please with a coke...", the barmaid leans over to the goblin again whispers "...bloody Londoners from the BBC, always the same, he'll start asking directions next, just you watch..." the barmaid voice grows louder adding "...here you go love, if you want more HP source just holler..." as she plonks the chip butty on the counter, "...thank you, and you must be a goblin my good fellow, always nice to meet someone from the computer world, btw you wouldn't happen to know my way off this ITV channel by any chance..." the barmaid just squinted her face and gave a nod of "told you so too" to the goblin who just added it to his anthropological report

footnote: Dr Who had did find his way back to the BBC after accidentally landing in ITV's Coronation street , not least because the goblin had given directions in exchange for a giant tin of "Nescafe gold" instant coffee grains, that is, moments before the barmaid, then changed into her revealing sexy space suit, entered the tardis saying "...back in tick luv, the Doctor has promised to show me his knobs..." where the goblin just squinted his face and gave a nod of "told you so too" as was customary on Coronation street

(the goblin liked Caliope and her ladyship for their going post to post with him saying "...I feel at home here, I should just explain if you don't know me already that I mostly put up a text with a matching picture each time, and perhaps a personal comment above that in brackets like now, that is since whatever one posts wins anyway so this for me is my way on winning but anyone can post what they like here...", and with that the goblin posted another example below)

the goblin was mad and yet in his daily life he hid it well, saying "...most people are mad but mind you their lives are mad too so it all balances out under the reinforcement of habit..." and with that the goblin hoped that everyone would just adjust their madness accordingly seeing that the sanity they seek is probably a trick of the system to have them become more like everyone else, adding  "...you are right to laugh at it, but you have to learn to hide your laughter better, they're mad but caring about it will make you mad too, embrace your own values silently and slip under their radar..."

the goblin returned some hours later to find the there were still no posts "...alas, poor cornerbots, I knew them well..." said the goblin borrowing words from Hamlet while downing his coffee in the bistro where so called "dailylife" continued a pace around him and where his eyes fall on a child being taught ABC by her parent, in fact the goblin understands the child's resentment at flexing the brain on the weekend, and just like school days the goblin wants to whisper the answer behind the teacher's back something like "...hush, the you have to take the last place here from the goblin or he wins again..." without getting caught by a the prof who normally was the "read up Marx, write down marks" type, the goblin caught that school memory before it could fully crawl out of the soil again where he then reburied it quickly

But to win at times, you need to feel loss, I can quantify this statement - though shall refrain at this point - I am far to busy un-locking threads!

If you think you had lost something that was important it can be amazing just how quickly in this world a replacement, more shiny, more squidgy, more suitable and your loss becomes a win...

A little like I just have, on this very thread!

Post by: fleamailman on December 02, 2008, 10:31:56 PM
(the goblin agreed with mofwtmy knowing that a thread can be unlocked but the past cannot be undone)

The goblin was here too, alone save for that cold feeling of deep passing night as he eyed the Christmas tree for its reassurance though it only seemed to open doors back to earlier trees of his wilder times “…you’re all gone, why do you want me to remind myself of all this now, besides they're, and you well know it too, either dead, grown up or very old now, …” he voiced to the bright tree surrounded by darkness, the tree laughed back"...stupid goblin is it only now that you learn that you can't give Christmas back to those who loved you, you can only pass it on for them..."

having caught a cold the goblin's mind, if he has one that is, is probably practicing swimming stokes at this moment in a pool of mucus between his ears, it reminds him to some extent of a man he knew in the bistro who was never drunk nor sober though always happily inebriated, anyway the goblin felt that listening to the man, or in the way that the goblin was thinking at thispoint, was very similar to reading something by Scott Fitzgerald where that same blurred impression of life came across, "...call it impressionist thinking then..." voiced the goblin to himself and his infection

the goblin is now vaguely watching his son try out his new game on his playstation called "Doommagi" where the box, written in German and as far as the goblin could make out, probably reads "chose one of three heroes  Balthasar, Gaspar, and Melchior who, trying to keep up with the traversing star, battle through the throngs of head counting minions of the evil Herrod all the way to Bethlehem, collecting gold, frankincence and myrrh on their way only stopping to trade at the taverns for lifepoints, weapons and armour upgrades, and camels speedups", to which the goblin concluded that he may be reading the box wrong again

the music plays, and then that voice and Anne Robinson's ditti "...time to vote off the weakest link...", and the man then cuts in reminding the audience of the score "...with no wrong answers the strongest link is Augustus Fleamailman while with no right answers the weakest link are the members of this forum but will the voting reflect this..." the contenders in turn then show a large card with the name of who they are voting off, "flea","flea","flea","flea","flea","flea","flea","flea","George Bush","flea","flea","flea", so the goblin does the walk of shame and then when given the mic says "...I am not quite sure about this democracy thing, could we have a recount..."

at which point the goblin himself suspected that, his opening up and explaining what it was really like to go through each and every wretched posting day under those cruel whims of that invisible illness "dyslexia", was perhaps not going cut much with members here today, "...ah but is my heart somehow shattered by all this, do I flinch form posting under the very gaze of those of who now somehow mock these sensibilities and sufferings here, no not this your poor goblin, not me, for I bare this all with forbodance and caffeine..." lamented the goblin over his lone and melancholy coffee once more

"...one only really wins here when one is truly empty inside..." said the goblin adding "...otherwise the slot just laughs aloud, follows you around, and just waits for your return...", somehow, for the goblin at any rate, winning was going to the point where he felt he had used up all his ideas, "...yes that's my breaking point I believe..." remarked the goblin, "...well then are you broke yet or is there more..." the slot kept asking

(the goblin thanked Caliope for saying that he understood saying "...well that's good that one of us understands then...")

the goblin passed, wished well or at least better than he himself was feeling with his churning stomach while outside, the view from the windows showed a dull city under a duller sky, the key words being "indifference" and "escapism" but his stomach would have none of it, his eyes seemed to go up to the sky in the feint hope of some possible UFO abduction "...I am here, do with me as you wish surely it can't be any worse today unless, that is, you aliens have some sort of "intergalactic song contest"..."

("...last post from me for tonight..." said the goblin)

the goblin was feeling better but he understood that life, as one gets older, shuns old people for being old, ugly, trash like, whatever, but the goblin realized now that it was "all up to himself" in that, if he had to become "old" like this, perhaps an iceberg in the eyes of others, then like that iceberg 1/5 part of him would remain visible where that other 4/5 part of him would float in the Internet as something far more than either the mirror or other real-life categorizations could fetter, so he simply restated here and to himself "...I will be what I create, my Internet self is going to be amazing, deep and real, promise, or I will die trying, is there really any choice then..."

bomb scare at the airport, the goblin's bus got to Heathrow where he was told "...so sorry you are not allowed in the terminal because you are not a transit passenger and non-transit people have to use the phone or internet to make their own arrangements...", the goblin went round to the another door at the other end of the terminal where, using a French accent, "..oui, I came form the Exeter..." while stroking a non-existant mustache and jugling non-existant balls, enters. Inside the goblin got one of the last three seats for the last flight to Geneva but that he would need to get to Pratwick for it. Grabbing a coffee and two bickys from the BA soup kitchen set up outside, the goblin eats half of one and gives up, pays for another bus ride and gives the second bicky to the bus driver politely suggesting that he eats it later much later. Upon arrival the queue resembles the yellow brick road, until finally at the desk the lady says"... would you like to put your keys, wallet, ticket and passport in this plastic bag, the rest we can put in the hold for you..." the goblin nods "...did you pack this bag yourself..." the goblin nods off "... any sharp object..." the goblin's head wobbles, gorps, etc., till she hands him the tickets "...upstairs, follow the departure signs..." queues, queues, queues until finally on the plane the girls announces "...we are sorry for the delay but we are having to remove some bags holdside of the people who have not turned up...". Stuck on the plane with nothing to read the goblin wonders why the woman even bothers to ask for our attention while she explains the usual safety drill so the goblin then puts his hand up and asks "...excuse me miss but what if the person next to me is a terrorist..." .

"...hi everyone, yes sorry, still squatting on the thread here..." said the goblin who was taking a break by visiting his old folks over the weekend in England, something the goblin did often enough always remembering to gently shout at the top of one voice, slam the door when entering the room and risk of ever being drowned in tea and lemon cake, "...more tea..." comes the voice from downstairs followed a the ghost in the silence that seems to still say "...and have you done your homework, had your bath and brushed your teeth yet..."

("...this post is from last year but I have found the picture for it now..." said the goblin posting it here)

the email reads that the goblin's mother (86 years old) might not be able to swallow, the goblin understood that the family would bulk at having her force fed with tubes, so the goblin replied to his father typing "...I know we hope that we haven't yet reached that point but, as always, simply I go along in supporting any decision you take or plans you make, also I think going naturally "without distress" is what my mother would have wanted if one was talking to her before this illness took her reason away from her, so I imagine there isn't anyone who wouldn't wish to go out in dignity so your decision for her would be once more the correct one for her here I feel..." and with that the goblin had to choose another postcard to write to his mother again as she would like to see pictures of the mountains, dad when he received it, would then read it to her if she was awake but what was written on the postcard didn't matter, only that she would feel that something nice had happened, the postcard seemed another slot asking for feeding "...so slot shall we tell her of the flowers in bloom, the blue sky and the breeze that floats the clouds across the Alps then..." "...goblin, I will swallow for her then..." the slot seemed to be saying

the goblin just mentioned "...I have written much about the ideas "facing the slot", "journey to self" and separately that of "creating ones Internet self here"..." continuing "...but anyway, I doubt I could have ever got people to try it straight off, so I had to have them think this was a game knowing that slowly they would come to see it for what it really was...", the goblin tried to bridge what he was saying by concluding "...it's like they're playing peekaboo to a mirror only to shock themselves by seeing who they are by what they end up posting from themselves..."

(the goblin liked Her Ladyship saying "...thank you for posting here, you are much braver than the others here...")

"...rotten cold, oh this is thanks for nothing..." said the goblin who by nature was a passive friendly sensitive type, yet with his infuriating cold he felt that perhaps, playing Rometotalwar as a crazed murderous bloodthirsty general at the head of a Roman army storming those ancient worlds one or two at a time, had in fact some understandable appeal to it, and therefore his rallying speech would probably be "...men, the road to Rome and final victory is marked in mucus, I Augustus Fleamailman will show you that no common cold can ever stop us..." while sneezing his last into the towel

"...morning again..." said the goblin who had been thinking that, although it is raining outside, any idea of space travel this morning is off in that each planet, and even each sun for that matter, is moving through space meaning that one would have to keep a constant eye on ones destination knowing that once there it would be very hard to find ones way back even if there were a friendly alien to help out, something like: "...excuse me Sir alien I am trying to get to Geneva, which is large collection of buildings we call a city, a city because it has a an empty large structure called a cathedral for sightseeing, which is in a country called Switzerland, which in fact isn't a country at all, but a confederation of little counties, which is in turn surrounded by lots more countries but is anyway all one landmass that no one cares to call an island because it is surrounding by the sea which makes our planet blue to look at, being the third planet from the nearest sun in our galaxy quite near the milky way, thanks...", "...ah but you're an earthling, welcome to our neck of the woods then, ah Geneva you say, you just take the third galaxy to the right, the second sun and it's the third planet, good luck then, do come again and "have a nice day"..." to which the goblin instinctively knew that if he followed those instructions he would just end up at MacDonald's as happens always with the hapless tourists here in Geneva,  nope the goblin feels that perhaps this morning he'll give space-tourism a miss then

he goblin could relate, (lying since he's usually daydreaming), at times the goblin needed a break as if to step a few feet back from the canvas just to see if what he was portraying was still the big picture in his view while at other time the goblin needed to get up close to outline its finer details "...the problem starts when one goes too far in either direction when the portrayal becomes "distant" on the one hand or "over detailed" on the other, but the slot never minds, do you slot...", the slot, eying the goblin's coffee again, replied "...not at all goblin, I'll eat anything and still be hungry afterwards..." and then smiling the slot adds "...in fact, it's amazing goblin that you even try to get the essence of your life into your posts then, surely you must know that it is impossibly futile...", "...well slot, I just like these odds..." replied as the goblin wondering if he too could somehow throw the washbasin through the bars of our "dailylife asylum" just like in the film with Jack Nicholson

from the goblin's dear all diary, 21st December 1996

Dear all,
One last letter before that inevitable "Christmas cheer" caused pen paralyzes sets in to find me positively purring at the homespun delight of having the burden of my responsibilities totally outweighed by that of my stomach but credit must be shared beyond family and friends which have encouraged me to date to include perhaps all those subject that have fallen foul of my satire, older and no wiser my dear all diary continues anew in 1997

sin.,flea

the goblin like pictures, "...listen mortals, show me some fab pictures here and I will let you live a bit longer, MUHAHAHAHA..." said the goblin but by now everyone knew him to be friendly so his ploy was probably pointless but still he hoped that they could turn this thread into a "way cool pics" thread too, that is while ever losing to the goblin again

Oh, and take a peek outside of this thread, there are loads of
other boards and threads to explore ;)

(the goblin liked all that he was given, "...link me o wise one to the thread where I may feast upon them..." said the goblin but really he liked it when someone brought their favorite pictures here instead)

the goblin's blog

1) "Thanks", the goblin replied to his friends who had replied on this thread and whose BSE had grown somewhat evident of late, that is BSE as in British System of Education but what could he do he thought. He had of late wondered if this sudden transformation into a goblin had something to do with, well seven hours of comp'repair followed a sleepless night of replying to on boards about comps. Anyway, he had been a good goblin because he knew that if you weren't you would end up being given ten Secondary school teacher's here in Goonville(geneva) and asked to teach them how to send an email, something like:

school report1, Proffy finds his work very challenging,
school report2, Proffy has mastered Outlook express but alas from there he finds his work challenging,
3, Proffy would like to return to the beginning to assess the situation,
6, Proffy has not come to class this month,
10, Proffy has learned mspaint instead,
20, Proffy cannot look at a computer without seeing it as an instrument of torture,
30, Proffy thinks that the decline of witchhunting in the middleages was a big mistake,
50, Proffy wonders how the School board ever let the big Ork(boss) perswade them that goblins(techs) and teachers can survive in a classroom setting,
70, Proffy wonders why the goblin hasn't noticed that you can't write on the blackboard with a screwdriver,
90, Poffy wonders why goblins often throw back their hands and screwdrivers in defeat,
school report1,000,000 Proffy sees that the goblin has bunked off to his fiends at the misguided forum to become a "last post" poster, etc., etc.," related the goblin whose soul wish was to remember, even slightly, what he had been originally saying.

early evening, and the moneygod has now released his lackey goblin to his own devices, usually meaning a tromp to the bistro, a coffee and the "last post" threads where, caffeine and spellchecker permitting, where the goblin will regain some semblance of sanity simply by trying to write his "dailylife" all out of him system, yet the more the goblin wrote about "dailylife", the more that disparity became obvious to him, his "dailylife" wasn't his sum total, but against that it was as if that line "what in ones life is worth posting" just bugged him knowing that the moment the goblin replied to himself "...nothing, I won't post anymore..." that the goblin would simply be dead before his death too, another mind drowned in "dailylife"

"...morning..." said the goblin where, once again in the dark of this predawn, the goblin would think over the possibilities of the coming day, its pitfalls and the rest, only to know that even if all went to plan it would be so forgettable to him as it really didn't matter, "... so outerman good luck with the smooth continuation of our "nine-to-five" job then and innerman I depend on you to create more posts worth reading, oh and try to remember you lot what it is that actually separates us from mere machines here, and above all don't let "dailylife" and the moneygod know that we are thinking for ourselves..." instructed the goblin to his himselfs and his himselves

("...do you let me win humans..." asked the goblin)

without a real coffee, the goblin's mind turns back to where he was at this point, sitting in an Internet cafe in London's Earls Court road with the day to himself as a tourist in the city that he grew up in and seeing everything as if one was looking at some ex girlfriend knowing why it ended yet still wasting thoughts on "what if we were still together, what if....," but she had been a crushing mistress then, and today too the cold damp reserve of this place almost reflected in its inhabitants leaves little doubt in the goblin's mind as to why he left London, and anyway as, one by one, those last remaining family ties snap, the goblin knows he is slowly casting this unforgiving place to his memory as if ridding on by unlikely to return

the goblin noted that life was like keep on keeping on "...one could give up but it would still be here carrying on without one like this blank space waiting for ones post..." but the goblin feared he was being too intellectual again besides his mind  was now sidetracked to the scene where Dr. Frankenstein calls out to Igor "...another power surge, another power surge then, it's coming alive..." and in a flash the goblin deduced how Mary Shelley got the idea in the first place

"...thanks..." said the goblin knowing that when he tried he failed and when he didn't try it came to him, the goblin explained "...the "muse's pact" changes the focus of ones life from "what do I want in life" to "what is worth posting in life" but the word "posting" could equally be replaced by painting, composing, writing, etc, albeit that there are three clauses of the "muse's pact" that remain constant whichever medium one chooses, that is they remain: "honesty, a shared life and a thick skin", the first and last clauses are obvious but the second "a shared life" is only really understood by someone who has opened up to the whatever muse("field" if you like) he or she has chosen..." at which point the goblin wondered if he was making sense even to himself, the goblin continued though "...no artist knows when, or what, idea will hit him, but each artist's muse is just there 24/7 and the artist lives with it somehow sharing his "dailylife" with that muse..." the goblin paused wondering if "artist" was even the right word in that scientists, philosophers, and a whole host of others lived shared lives in this way too, but either way the goblin's "dailylife" was now calling him away again so he could share no more at this point but at least the goblin had tried to explain it here

Poirot carefully twisted his mustache into a fine point "...um, you know inspector the gray matter moves and the gray matter is telling me that there is something about this case that, how would you English put it..." the inspector looking up from the two double-Dutch texts said "...wash, Hercule, but I don't know, they look alright to me, I mean I can't make head nor tail of them though, but what of it..." the inspector shrugged "...precisely inspector, but that is what they, or should we say he or she wanted..." "...I don't follow..." "...think about it inspector, two posters posting in double-Dutch on the same day in the same thread, what does that tell you inspector..." the inspector looked back at him and ventured "...that they both wanted to take the last place from the goblin...", Poirot laughed "...oh la la, no inspector it tells you that Caliope and Her Ladyship or whoever they are, are in fact the same person..." at which point the great Ork poked his head around the door asking "...how it going with mending that WIFI flea..."

and then the Darwin goblin suddenly faced the stunned audience in front of him, he had just mentioned why, in his opinion, he had to draw the conclusion that all members were descended from the "one Caliope species", the goblin continued in the abated silence of the tentative lecture room "...in fact not only do I put it to you gentlemen that we are all descended from the one Caliope species but that since Caliope had typed "Heh heh, you knows I lurves you"..." the Darwin goblin waved the typed copy of the text in his hand to prove it, "...that it could probably read and write too, so therefore gentlemen it has to be later, by some evolutionary mishap perhaps, that the other members of this site had regressed into posting smileys on the "last post" thread..." the audience pondered the idea deeply, slow silence, and then a sudden rush to their smiley boxes again

"...no problem everyone, my fault, I guess I am pretty random too..." said the goblin looking at that falling snow through the large French Windows where only a fair sized yellow "M" stuck tight to the frozen glass betrayed any reality, that "growing old cold reality" the goblin tried so hard to counter balance here, "...I deal with ghosts, most writers do, they pop up offering their candidacy whenever I ask myself "what in my life is worth posting", that is, as I sift through my thoughts as if to prove, to myself at least, that I too am not quite as dead as them yet, meanwhile the constant falling snow seemed an ever closing curtain that never quite closes on the growing cold outside

and then the goblin woke up, all before had been a dream but now he was once more faced a little white slot that seemed to say "...feed me to find yourself, take that journey to self goblin..." but the goblin knew that "self" was always some point on the horizon that one never really got to, "...more like "find the end of the rainbow" you mean slot, a donkey following a carrot you mean..." but the slot replied, "...well, in life there are only two journeys, "theirs" and "yours", and surely you've followed their carrot long enough by now, and you won't find the rainbow's end that you are looking for in their journey either..."

by now the goblin kept a truce with time saying "...if I don't trust time, it won't fluster me nor run off, and if I don't wait on time, it won't drag its feet either...", somehow the image of a very small child being taken for a treat to the playground in the park sprang to the goblin's mind then, as if, letting it free, yes but not free enough to wonder off

it's this time of year and the goblin has been thinking about Christmas again and how in this modern age it just isn't politically correct anymore, that is in that the non-Christians think it is too Christian whereas the Christians think it is too pagan, the goblin wanted to offer something else here "...well folks, it's time for the all new politically correct name-change then..." ventured the goblin "...what we need is a something historical to celebrate in its place that is both secular and well known..." the goblin continued "...how about celebrating the discovery on the new world by Christopher Columbus in 1492..." the goblin suggested knowing that there were probably some people who knew that in America, "...simple, we take the his name and shorten it, "Chis" of Christopher and "bus" of Columbus...", and with that the felt he had done his good deed of the day and wanted to be the first to say on this thread: "...Merry Chrisbus everyone..."

"...too true..." replied the goblin, adding "...but it's a battle against ones own indifference here, first one sets a quota like "one post a day", then one asks "what in my life is worth posting", perhaps adding a matching picture if one likes to underline it, and then posts the result across many "last post" thread so as not to lose it, and then eventually one dies like everyone else...", at which point most people ask "why" but the goblin knew that that was the difference a shared and an unshared life and that most people hadn't a clue what that meant being too caught up in their "dailylife" and that bidding of the moneygod again, "...does their Muse sleep I wonder..." asked the goblin again

You are very weird.

"...the question here then is would one like to be as their "normal" then..." asked the goblin somehow knowing that that wasn't what he wanted for himself nor for xxxxx either, "...imagination tells you that there's more to life than "dailylife", at every turning along the road one has abnormal thoughts which ones reason keeps in check and under control..." the goblin paused trying to find the right words to explain that balance between ones "imagination" on the one side, and ones "reason" on the other, the goblin continued "...what if "imagination" were like the waves and "reason" was like gravity, where those waves wash up all types of things onto the shore on ones mind and gravity anchors them on the beach there, or they roll back into the sea to be washed up again in a different way with the next wave of imagination either to be anchored or wash back again, so this then for me is my mind..." at which point the goblin asked again "...do you still want to be normal, or do you want more..."

"....this thread for me doubles up as both my blog and my storeroom, it is somewhere where one can be having the most awful day in real life and still post a win, a slow chatbox if one wishes, a place to let vent something, create something, that is, against or complimentary to "dailylife"..." mused the goblin knowing that really there was no way to explain everything in one post, so the goblin fobbed it, "...Merry Christmas one and all..." he said instead of explaining any further, and yet the Christmas tree too itself was a powerful pagan sacrifice full of ritual that no one really questioned either, "... ah, just some things are better off left unexplained..." the goblin thought, and then the clock on the wall told the goblin to go to take his thoughts elsewhere

So.....I take it you like stories?

"...oh yes, but perhaps more than mere stories I like reflections, and, if it's true that "every picture tells a story", then "every story in its turn holds some reflection" wouldn't it..." mused the goblin who even so, often saw pictures that seemed to have no story to them, and happenings that seemed to have no reflection worth noting, "...in fact, the question for me is "if something gives off no reflection how one can really claim to have seen it", so these reflections I write in all these "last post" threads are my way of saying "see, I have not let this life, or the events in it, pass by me entirely unseen" so to speak..."  ventured the goblin remembering that "to see" and "to reflect" often built up on one another growing the see'er in turn to see and reflect more, "...in youth one flowers, in middle age one turns into a fruit, grows and falls, but in old age that rotting carcass hides a hards stone with the source of life within it..." explained the goblin again ever aiming at it

"...one can't get rid of ones past..." replied the goblin but the goblin knew that he couldn't explain "communicating and coming to terms with ones past", though it still didn't stop him wanting to try here saying "...most people have memories but when one has a "shared life" they're not neatly buried and forgotten in the back of ones mind somewhere as one digs them up borrowing from them to create ones works as others would create books, paintings, music, poems or whatever I imagine...", and the goblin knew he could give endless examples but instead the goblin just continued "...the oddest sensation is when one is borrowing something and its ghost enters into focus and one is then communicating with it, that is, one is no longer simply writing about "ones past" in third person, one is staring that ghost in the face while reinforcing that ghost in ones mind with ones pen communicating with it like here and now, so perhaps that's why I find writing so much more exacting than thinking, as if all this were some written tally of my thoughts taken from these communications then..." and with that the goblin crystallized his view saying "...if actors can't play the part for real unless they get into the part, writers are probably are same..."

"...hail hapless human of the hamster wheel, how goes society's bidding today then...." asked our friendly goblin somewhat down with a cold again, though, in fact, the goblin's problem at this point was a paradox, in that, whenever the goblin wanted to concede defeat to the humans here, when the goblin wanted to post that others do indeed have the last post on the "last past" thread, that if and when the goblin actually posted something to that effect, the goblin would then notice that by doing so, the goblin himself had regained the last place on the "last post" thread for himself again, and thus won by it, so the goblin just wished to be forgiven since it was clearly through no fault of his own that had once more taken the winning position again winning, "...it was just fate wasn't it..." exclaimed the goblin in his surprise

Repost from elsewhere
the  "what are you going to be doing for thanksgiving?" thread

the goblin, in an ever ecological attitude to the environment, will be giving out those remaining Halloween sweets for Thanksgiving, whereupon the remaining Turkey of Thanksgiving is served up at Christmas where the remaining Christmas Chocolates are given out at Easter whereupon those remaining Easter eggs are given out at Halloween where, as pointed out before, those remaining sweets bring us happily back to Thanksgiving again, "...well yes anything to really add flavor to people's lives I suppose..." mentioned the goblin

addressed to the leader of the women's movement

Dear Madame,
If I may just draw your attention to pitfall in withdrawing religious teaching in your movement, that is to say that to date most women have been taught "Jam and Jerusalem" in equal proportion within your movement, whereas one notes that if one were to continue the withdrawal the Jerusalem side your minions will delve ever further into the jam side of things, and jam as we know is in fact a preservative meaning that it is only a short step from the simply preservation of things to their own mummification with the dire consequences one now sees across those women's interest sites, especially on the "last post" threads, those symptoms being posting all manner cute postable thingies, self embalming, stomping and living under some strange impression that the goblin's "last post" franchise is somehow theirs, anyway your attention to this matter, that is, between shopping sprees, lady's nights and the adoration of little pets would be deeply appreciated, I remain.,

Your sinfully,
A. Fleamailman

"...This moment again..." said the goblin to himself looking across the organic coffeeshop in Dungford, the matrons had changed, insomuch as to who they were, but the rest down to each and every food product, tables, chairs and the like were exactly as they were when he had been here before looking after his mother a year almost a year ago, the goblin himself probably fitted in somewhere between the moms with babies on the one side and the grey sky window view on the other, he typed on, preferring to look out across the window to the people waalking down the main street who if not aimless were not exactly hurrying either, “village pace” the goblin dubbed it, something which the mind accepted in waves of resignation until it couldn’t that is, at which time some smiling men in yellow reflective coats had jumped out of the trash van to remove the black bags, “…look children, their taking away the black bags away…” came a voice from the next table, the goblin’s eyes followed eagerly in hope till they looked up to the gray sky without hope

("...ah, Roses chocolates..." replied the goblin who remembered he liked the purple one with the nut surrounded by toffee center, continuing "...yes, those were the days where neither toothache, nor headache nor even feeling sick ever occurred, I was invincible and could burn off all that I swallowed...", but the goblin was just reminiscing back to something  bared form him today)

"...oh how one is ever faced with chocolate..." said the goblin who did the "Golden Express" tour as a guide often enough, meaning that each time the goblin had to visit the chocolate factory in Broc where the goblin would be faced with that long table the length of a tour bus that covered in piles of neatly stacked chocolates, hundreds upon hundreds of chocolates, and all just there for one to eat as many of those chocolates as one wished, and yet in this situation like this the goblin found himself eating only two or three chocolates at most, "...best to always leave off while one still loves..." explained the goblin who somehow knew what would happen if he didn't

"...quiet boxing day please..." requested the goblin whose mind felt like it wobbled inside its skull with each dull thought, "...I will never drink again till next time..." the goblin promised himself thinking that that at least was a more honest appraisal of his long term ability to forget today's sorely felt lesson but for the time being that lesson held him in check

(the goblin would allow anything saying "...after all, it just piles up my overall winnings doesn't it...", in fact the only reason why the goblin never used smileys was that their codes changed from forum to forum so they couldn't be reposted with the ease that texts with matching pictures can as the goblin posted his latest)

Christmas day and the goblin feels grounded as all the bistros, those real ones with WIFI that is, are closed, and yet however much the goblin laments this cruel truth while slumbering in his hot bath watching some horror film on that wide screen laptop that placed on the closed toilet seat, the goblin is still aware that he has to call someone to move the curser a touch before the screen saver kicks in blocking his viewing, "...ah what trials and tribulations I must suffer...", simply the goblin hated depending on other people like this he knew but what could be done he wondered, "...and besides there's simply no room left anywhere to place my coffee cup, that packet of Lackerli biscuits and a little something to read should I get bored..." sighed the goblin once more at his predicament

the goblin greatest happiness was both "being alive" and being "able to reflect upon it", "...in fact, I suppose that I could base my happiness on external factors like, "health", "possessions", and "relationships"..." explained the goblin continuing "...but they're external happinesses that ill health, financial ruin, or simply old age would no doubt easily erode away, no my happiness, from this point on, must be found from within me and radiate outwards towards "dailylife" and not depend on "dailylife" itself, since old age will slap me in the face if I don't aim for something deeper in the end..."

(repost form elsewhere, advice to anyone into writing)

the goblin knew that writing was never easy, "...too few adjectives and the story seems colorless and monotone whereas each adjective one adds to the storyline is a parameter that one is then tied to, so writers have to keep thinking back to earlier parts of the story to avoid contradiction and confusion on the part of the reader..." mentioned the goblin adding "...think of it like a rock under the flowing story, the other rocks are misspelling, ambiguity, writing style and length ...", at which point the goblin was thinking that all these rocks are forgiven if they a few and if the story is deep enough to carry the reader over them but, where not, the boat breaks up on them so to speak..."

"...oh but everything is curious today. I think I should go back there and see then..." as the goblin pressed the link which then reads "I win", "...curiouser and curiouser..." exclaimed the goblin continuing "...but we'll soon see about that though..." as the goblin readies his reply and posts "...mortals you step away from sanity if you continue down this path with me here..." but the goblin guessed that it was already too late for many, somehow sanity had never been much fun it seemed and by now the goblin could not help himself either

the goblin knew that no one was expected to post here feeling that this "last post" thread was more like a chance to do ones own thing, be creative, etc, so the goblin simply repeated "...it's not the tagging of this thread that is going to win one anything much here, that is, because the real winning begins when one actually is asking oneself "what in my life is worth posting here" and then tries to post something from that standpoint I believe...", and with that the goblin smiled "...life it too short to miss out on what one might have posted, also too short to react to heckles, since if you're "good" then those hecklers are wrong and if you're "bad", you're going to get better so they're wrong again if you keep at it that is..."

a repost from elsewhere, another woman's interest site(read: mommies world)

"...there, unlike the grace of God, stomps the mommies..." bemused the goblin seeing pink chalk tracts over his pristine thread, and yet the prominence of blue chalk of late had the goblin wondering if the mommies were in fact giving up, the goblin continued "...or perhaps there were just no more cute thingies left on the Internet for them to post against me here then, guess I will have to write a letter the powers that be, as they are not such a bad lot after all..."


Dear Mr. Bush,
We too, hold these truths to be self-evident, that all mommies are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of cute postable Internet thingies for the goblin's last post thread, I turn to you then to meet their demands in this matter, and remain.,

for the goblin this "last post" thread wasn't some kind of "I win/you win" game so much as an "empty slot/posted" challenge, "...simply, I could leave it, and my life too for that matter, an empty slot, that, or I could keep on trying  to find something worth posting in it..." ventured the goblin well aware that it was no different for anyone else here either, "four walls do not a prison make" remembered the goblin seeing the four sides of the slot here as he wrote now, adding "...no, in fact, with a bit of imagination those same four walls can become ones home or ones companion through life..."

whatever happiness the goblin had, it was tempered by sobriety and by his growing acceptance of the actual uncertainty in his life, something correct the goblin felt, explaining "...you see, the further back I go in my past the more I believed in a lie knowing it was just that a lie, and yet I believed in its simplicity as one would in God or Santa, and even now, the child in me craves that lie that the rest of me can't, or won't accept, so the child asks where is its "American dream" with those safe perimeters of work, family and home...", that is, even if the goblin also knew any belief was in itself a measure  of doubt since one didn't one know for sure that is, so sobriety had shown him that simply the "American dream" had never really existed, that nothing was certain like that, only that that belief had been so much more comfortable than this sobriety of today's simple stark truth that "all is in fact uncertain in life beyond ones end in it", at which point the goblin continued "...and although I can't term any of this realism as some sort of happiness in itself, far from it, at least I am grateful to be able to accept life for the uncertainty it holds that now makes it so much more real to me, it isn't some sugary "American dream", it is a high stakes gamble from day to day, and today being here one is winning, to live is to win..."

the goblin was trying to think of far away places but, now and again, the present cold bit through into his thoughts as that ever bitter wind somehow peculated from outside into the silent sitting room today, outside, where the sun should have been, a dull lit sky told the goblin yet again that without gloves and a scarf his hands and face would simply burn stiff with cold, and that it was through this harsh gantlet of cold then that the wretched goblin now had to go for those groceries once more, "...pass, give this fate to someone else, some super hero, I am not worthy, no, please no..." sighed the goblin in vain recalling those images of the Titanic colliding with that grocery cart and then slowly sinking into the sea of supermarket indifference as he opened the front door taking those first steps once more to the words "...for whom the gods wish to destroy they first send them shopping through this then..."

the goblin supposed that if life "made sense" then it would be too simple, and that, if "the effect" was always as predicted by "the cause", then people would just look to their reward each time over the action, so the goblin himself didn't believe in reward knowing that this life was full of cases where "cause and effect" didn't neatly follow one another, and the goblin thanked his life for it, that "cause and effect" was mostly true, yes, though never quite 100% true where real life was concerned, so the goblin just repeated his favorite line to himself again "..."the action is the reward in itself" or else it's cheap...", but the goblin had often been a cheap blind calculative type in his dealings with others

("...the blog is old but this entry is new..." said the goblin)

the goblin's blog

“...hello there...” says the goblin addressing the matron in Dungford's very own, and one and only, heathfood shop again “...I would like a meaty coffee where ones mind goes ping after a few sips, you know, a coffee with a body like a tigress whose bite is more like Dracula's...”, “...sorry, is that “regular” or “decaf” dear cause I'm in a hurry...” replies the matron whose ominously large cups came into view behind her, “...no I mean a little cup, boilingly hot mountain fresh water and those thickly brewed sensual coffee grains strained to the point of perfection...” uttered the goblin in panic now, “...well I'll see what we can do dear but...,...”, moments later “...here you go love...” as one large but near empty cup is steadfastly landed on the table whose contents just seems to laugh at him daring him to drink it, while the slot seems to say “...look, I hope you don't mind me saying this goblin but I do feel that our vessel of escapism has somewhat crashed on these rocks of reality this morning...”, some time later the matron bellows across to the goblin the usual “...well love, what ya think how was it, fancy another one then...”, “...well you English make absolutely exceptional coffee but I'll give it a miss this time, thanks all the same though...” replies the goblin aloud as he writes in the slot to keep it from busting its guts out loud in the laptop, “...well slot, they say “lie back and think of England”don't they, so I just lied back and still thinking of England as some huge unwinnable battle here...”

the goblin showed up, forgave everybody everything, because he had opened up a "last post" thread on a writer's site a few days back, and rather then their being imaginative, it was all, "you shouldn't do this", or "what are your credentials", or "writing in third person is upsetting", "...I mean, "why look at the surfboard when one is on the largest wave in ones life heading towards the beach, make the most of the ride" is my view..." blurted the goblin thinking that those self called writers there were all "legends in their own behinds" but the goblin would stick it out till thrown out, that was always his way

"...thanks..." said the goblin who had written to those writers basically something like the post below)

repost for "what are you thinking" thread elsewhere

the goblin is thinking why it was so important to be oneself, and to say "f##k'em" about people who have no way of knowing what is going on in ones own mind, "...all you have is your own thoughts, once those thoughts are surrendered to what people expect from you as their norm, once that happens, then no matter what you wear, what tattoos you might have, what swear words you might use, whatever, you are as good as invisible to them and worse still, probably invisible to yourself too..." said the goblin adding "...but once you have your own self back, once you can see that one doesn't have to buy into their crap to make oneself visible, then one probably is for the right reason..."

the goblin was thinking, and simply repeated "...often, it isn't when things "go right" that one learns, it's when they "go wrong" that one starts to learn something...", words which seemed to take the goblin back to a phrase that he had written before "the angel is not there to be nice, and the goblin had fought her often, she was there to help one see ones spirit"

(the goblin loved the way the pictures were resized automatically on this site, "...it's great.."said the goblin reminded of someone who quickly rings up on the radio quiz show, and when the DJ asks "...well caller, what's the answer to the question, who is the prime minister of Canada then...", replies "...um I think it's the Count de Monte Cristo, oh, by the way,  can I make a few dedications please oh please DJ..." as the DJ puts two fingers up to his head and goes pow silently with his mouth in disbelief)

the goblin was thinking back this morning to the last time he saw his mother in the home, she was happy to see him, the goblin could see that, as she was sat up in the bed and tried to talk, not that she could, only that her head bobbed forward with each word like sound like that seemed like little bullets from a steady machine gun, dad fed bits of a cut pear to her mouth and, at times, she had enough strength to take one for herself from the small while plate placed in the dull interior of her bedroom, cell room, whatever they call them then, the day was gray the goblin remembers, this ceremonial like ritual never changed much, the pear, a freshly squeezed orange juice and the two of us there visiting her in a very long goodbye, "...it just was, and we were there to see it out we knew..." said the goblin once more, adding "...the feeling even now is one of depth, sobriety and silence, I kissed her forehead giving my promise to return as always..." recalled the goblin, who remembered walking away up the corridor with dad saying to him "...you know, it could be so much worse dad, how lucky we are then aren't we..." and with that dad pushed those buttons on the ever locked door releasing us, to the waiting taxi, only to shut tight behind us again as the taxi pulled us away

re-post from "morning/evening" thread elsewhere

"...good morning..." said the goblin aware that, if nothing in itself was actually life threatening, then the next thing down the list automatically became the most important thing in ones life, meaning, that to this family at this point, the most important thing was that the goblin goes to the shop and gets a little plastic band to stop that leaking wash basin, or else that basin will continue leaking slowly filling the bucket below, now, the goblin, who is aware that this is, in fact, unimportant on the grand scale of the cosmos and the movement of the stars within, intends a compromise, the goblin will actually buy the little rubber band while expressly refuting its importance, along with humanity's importance that is, here, to the disinterested members of the caliopesbot, something on par with Madame Bovary who, faced with how to rearrange the flowers for her husbands all so important dinner party actually chooses white funeral carnations aware that neither her husband nor her guests would follow the subtle meaning of the message where, if nothing humans do is important in itself on the grand scale of the stars, one is free in ones own insignificance

the goblin often paints a picture of what he sees, feeling that some intricate depiction was often a writer's equivalent of a “still life”, “... ah, and what lends better to my pen here then, than just watching others in a bistro like now I wonder...” said the goblin seated opposite someone again, “...simple, in my work I have to meet people, which spoils it in the interaction that that involves of course , but in the bistro they're mine to depict as I surmise them to be or as I suppose them to be that is...” but the goblin took pains not to let on as he was just sketching, nor cared he who they were either, only that something in their appearance merited his pen again

the goblin was thinking in dibs and drabs today but the music was "fine young cannibals" which made up for it as it flooded pictures of younger times when he wrote letters, actually with a pen and paper in the bistro "...yes, I was mad even then, but they got it wrong, it is not "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword" it's "he who lives by the sword wants to die by that sword too..." ventured the goblin who couldn't envisage life without his sword then, nor just living on aimlessly, "... for what is life without ones passion in it..." asked the goblin

"...job or no job, most people are insecure these days..." said the goblin adding "...plans are shelved, holidays canceled, and relationships strained in this social, financial  and family retrenchment it seems..." in fact the goblin wondered if most people weren't, in some way, going through the same type of shock and readjustment that those Vietnam veterans faced on the return from the war where they couldn't readjust to security, save that this time around, instead of those soldiers who found their security unsettled them, it 's this insecurity which unsettled us now..."

on the table lies a letter reading "Dear Mr. Fleamailman, your bank deposits are perfectly safe with us now, promise, yours sinfully, Bernie Madoff", also, the British prime minister in the news now advises us to remain optimistic here,  somehow the voice in the goblin's head  just goes "....now everyone, if you can lean forward that is, please fold your arms around your knees, and wait for the call of "brace, brace, brace", thank you..."

Dear goblinson

the goblin thanked Boo, and was still mouing over the question then advising her"...the little Eastern ones have less invested from outside, and have newer economies so it could well be them, yes, but their fall will be less in itself, and not so important to the rest, compared to those countries that are now considered to be safe bets like Iceland was, and I agree that neither Germany, France, nor Britain will fall as they have a production base that can gear up to a leaner meaner economy since "recession is not standstill", however, the lower European countries have had it too good for too long and their fall would have a greater impact  here I believe, in that, Spain, Italy or Greece have a highly subsidized social systems which have to be met with taxpayer's money whereas the newer country's economies, those that have tried to meet the EU standards, don't have this burden, so I still fear for Greece here, as it has neither production nor agriculture on the level of either Italy of Spain, but come to think of it, Sweden and Norway, don't look too safe either in the "taxation/social infrastructure" equation here...", simply the goblin put his money "on Greece" but not "in Greece" that is

the goblin was playing dead on Valentine's day, the moneygod it seemed, who the goblin had never really been fond of, let alone worshiped like others did that is, was now decimating his own minions with an unemployment billhook, and, although "who, where, and when" always remained the moneygod's prerogative alone, a growing sense of fear was taking over the land only matched it seemed again, perhaps even underlining it in gloom here, by an abysmal weather under which this sentence was now being carried out in

(the goblin didn't have any credit so he didn't have to worry about a crunch then he felt)

Valentine's day it might be, but love plays no part in the goblin's life now, "...or it's more perhaps that the line between love and duty have blurred to the point where I can say "oh yes I love someone or something, but that's nothing like that passion I once felt, so that all engulfing fire from within has cooled now to a sobriety of a middle age that feeds on choices and consequences...", the goblin paused  a moment and then explained, "...OK, I love my family, and would die for them just as I love work knowing that I will work till they no longer need me, I even love this virtual reality for the "journey to self" I harp on about, and this is the real reason then, that all this is me now being in control as an adult, or at least me as someone my age should be" meaning that that uncontrolled love of ones youth is lost, both with and without regret, it's just the way middle age evolves just as firmly on the inside of one as it does in the mirror..."

9. Sorry to inform you, but the waitress(er) who served you that last cup of coffee is starting their career as a mass murder and you are their first victim.  They have slipped high powered rat poison into your coffee and soon you will dead, again sorry.  A year from now, when the murderer has gone on to kill thirteen more and is finally caught, your image and name will be splatter all over the news.  A well known true crime author decides to write a book about the killings/victims and researches every aspect and deed of your life, both online and off.

What will they title the chapter about yourself and what will the first paragraph be?

the goblin's future ghost showed up to write the reply here, "...oh, so someone did bump off the old fart after all, figures, mind with all that coffee he drank he was a good as poisoned already..." the ghost read the the next bit, "...OK, "what will they title the chapter about yourself and what will the first paragraph be", um, no idea, better call the muse over for this one, it's more her type of thing I believe..." as he looks at her pointing to the screen with both prodding index fingers, then wisely jumps back letting her take control of the keyboard as she freezes in front of the slot

"...you know, looking at this place..." an inebriated arm swung outwards above two cannons of white sitting on the bistro table, presenting those other neat tables and most empty chairs, "...but.." as he splayed his fingers out in an outstretch hand only to turn them inwards clinching into a fist that, in a sudden pull, he returned towards his chest again with a severe vice like motion "...she killed them, one by one by one..." not that he was talking to anyone in particular around him, he fixed his gaze on someone and then the monolog just continued "...oh, and there was that old bloke with the laptop..." he smiled at remembering "...that's right, the one that mumbled texts, always seated in the same corner table that is, yes, he was the first one, ever looking across the room or making sideways glances at people, rarely talking, just typing, always typing, silly looking guy, oh what was his name again...", the man seated near by replies "...I think it was fleamailman, can I get you another glass perhaps..." the drunk is first surprised then nods with a smile, as the other man signals the waiter "...make that two canons please..." as the waiter pours the hard dry white "...so you knew fleamailman then, did you know the waitress too, look, you see I'm writing a book about this whole thing and I've got the basic details together, the plot, the people's background, but the motive is missing, or at least it doesn't seem plausible to me, I mean, she didn't gain anything by it, so why poison people in the place where one is serving, surely the police would know straight off wouldn't they, unless..." and with that the man broke off hoping the drunk would fill in the blanc, "...sorry, well yes, yes, she killed them, one by one by one..." the voice was losing coherence, the eyes glazed over in a stupor, and the interview was over but the man just asked again "...why commit a crime which leads deliberately to ones own incrimination here..." as he picked up small slip left with the drinks, and, walking over to the counter, pays it, somehow the encounter with the drunk hadn't changed the facts as the stood but somehow again those same facts no longer seemed to fit so neatly here, there was more to it the author now knew, and it would come to him, at least that much he knew too, but which one was the real motive here, as his mind seemed to make a mental list again but none of those motives seemed to sing to him, and with that he knew he would return the next day too, "...I know this is trying to tell me something..." the man just voiced softly in the street walking away

"...oh no, never..." said the goblin who wasn't wishing anyone a happy Valentine's day, "...no, I would wish someone a tragic, yet all too romantic, Valentine's day, in fact, one of those adventurous Valentine's days where all is still so uncertain and unfolding on the outside, while inside one is felling hectic and overpowered by ones chaotic emotions..." mentioned the goblin reminiscing again

the goblin had returned to posting but as yet he had to find his depth again, "...posting is the easy part but finding something worth posting is both the reward and the challenge of this game..." voiced the goblin to this quiet empty room once more, the slow ticking seconds seemed to tally the duration of his wait, the actual time was irrelevant, each repetitive tick was enough to let the goblin know that the hour was late enough for him to hear and feel its steady passing sensation as the goblin waited upon his thoughts once more

"...Richelieu once said "secrecy is the first rule of state", and the important thing here is that "secrecy", in this sense, isn't some childlike denial, or refusal to reply, or straight out lying either, it's that actual "where am I in all this"...", and then the goblin felt his nagging need of a coffee again, he was now fighting a sensation of dullness of thought which was taking over, either way the goblin knew he would have to head into the kitchen in a moment, but meanwhile he just continued "...anyway, the world of adolescence, as opposed to that of adulthood, is the one of finding ones "secrecy" mistakenly thought of as actually gaining some outright independence, for "secrecy" one can have in life if one constantly keeps it in focus, but life doesn't let one have that true independence, if only because society functions on the surrender of everyones independence within it, in that the moment one asks "what do I want from life" one is just buying into the system again..." mentioned the goblin finally heading headlong into the kitchen

"...recognition by "hitcount", qualification by "just doing it"..." said the goblin, adding "...so which is the medium that is usurping all others here, not books, magazines, nor newspapers then,  nor even television, cinema or radio, so which then is the medium that everyone likes to inter react with, to contribute to and then to follow...", and with that the goblin guessed that most people here already knew the point which the goblin was making, so the goblin simply repeated "..."welcome to the masked ball of this Internet" for this is our medium now for here we are all our own author/readers..."

"...you see..." the goblin explained continuing "...it isn't enough for me to create a persona here, one has to create an effective harlequin to narrate the scene too...", outside, in the now unused streets that this Sunday morning offered those few passersby under some gray sky dullness that was all too typical of Geneva's early Spring, a longish day awaited, one that would just follow its unadventurous course as always, inside the bistro though, it was different in that the goblin's coffee, being half drunk by now, fueled a mind that was ready for posting across the Internet for all that anonymous critical acclaim and recognition by the plebs that only one as deluded as himself could possibly crave for, save that the bistro's WIFI at this point was down again, "...plan B then..." said the goblin who fell back to his second fiddle of preparing something to post later, concluding "...for me, these "last post" threads act both, like a spur goading me on to post back regardless, and as a constant benchmark of my posting ability to aim at, no not "what do I win here", more "what am I losing if I don't" which keeps me at it...", the harlequin then narrated the bit about the falling near freezing sleet viewed from the window and how this barred the goblin's physical escape from the bistro all at the very moment the WIFI had returned, "...so I'm stuck here on this thread with you mortals MYAHAHAHAHAHA, cause I'm certainly not going out in that then..." wailed the goblin squatting on last spot here again, slowly the snow took over from where the sleet had left off

[footnote; direct continuation from previous post above]

the goblin was thinking about this now relentless curtain of cascading  snow, which had taken over from the sleet some hours ago, knowing that as long as it fell like this he, together with those around him, was stuck in the bistro sharing the same emotion of disbelief at it, "...for now is this Winter of our discontent made whole by the view from this window..." joked the goblin not really laughing as umpteen glum faces somehow looked forlornly up to the heavens for a moment's rest bite, out-glummed only in intensity that is by the bistro owner himself who knew his "takings" wouldn't merit his "hours" again and what better target for his griping than those squatting laptops users the goblin wondered, nope, the goblin didn't need to wonder he just needed a cloak of invisibility at this point

the goblin hoped that there would never be a last person, nor a last post here, "...no this is an endless thread, simply it is a glorified chatroom and a stage to post anything one wishes, but unlike a chatroom it has notifications, attachments, a spell checker, and every other advantage of a normal thread, that is, while also adding both to the site's total number of posts and ones postcount too, in short, it is a killer thread here..." ventured the goblin adding one proviso  "...ah, but the detraction of the "last post" thread is that anything one does on it wins, simply anything is OK here, hence its mass popularity since most people either want to win or post something in their own righ, so, once started, it can very quickly become the number one thread, much to the decrement of everything else, rather like a strange cuckoo's egg in the forum's posting nest..."

repost from "Last thing your character said [to you]" thread, read writer's site, elsewhere

"...goodie..." said the goblin knowing that there was nothing that quite equates to "really supporting a site" like actual posts here, as the little child drank her hot milk with a smile now hidden behind those large white rings that had formed around her mouth, the bistro, almost empty, seemed quiet at this point, the goblin just continued "...but a dialog needs to be coupled with narration, or it will still look and feel like "first person", albeit in inverted commas, or with the names written to the left that is, so one needs to portray the situation imaginatively on the one hand here, while bringing the characters to life with the other...", not the goblin himself understood any of this, as his eyes were still on the little girl waiting her chance to wipe her mouth firmly on that sleeve or whatever while her mother, seated opposite behind some splayed newspaper, repeated some mantra of "...yes, yes, oh really and what did you do next dear..." to which the little girl, equally oblivious, gaily recounted her rather short "life's story" complete with exploding hand gestures for the umpteenth time, which was all OK the goblin thought save that he knew he still had to find some "dialog text" to post here so he waited upon his muse again but his docile mind, like that slowly setting sky outside, seemed a continuous blanc, somehow the goblin just envied the little girl her unquestionable ability then

the goblin liked Caliope, saluted everyone and then just returned to the idea of keeping it random, his morning bistro session in full swing, he was finding his depth again, "...you know..." he started "...you win each time you post, in fact, strangely enough you win whenever and wherever you post on the Internet that is, but somehow, and as if always, "dailylife" just calls one away again till the moment one looks at the duration of the time that one has passed in ones "dailylife", against all that one has posted on the Internet to date, and feels cheated with perhaps only really oneself to blame for having not posted more often, nor with more depth that is..." ventured the goblin at himself here, so, for the goblin at least, it wasn't really that the he ever won against someone else on any site, for they too had their own journeys to make he knew, only that the goblin himself didn't want to concede to his "dailylife", with all its too compelling petty concerns, yet one more day that it had slyly diverted him from his "journey to self" here, "...oh, and "dailylife" my friends, is passed master at creating plausible reasons to break ones journey in a life that is always shorter than one thinks..." added the goblin ever posting on with little choice he felt

"...isn't this a livable contradiction then ..." mentioned the goblin as a somewhat lethargic clock waited upon its passing seconds once more, somehow the cold morgue like kitchen at this point was the very center of the goblin's now silent universe again, well, for at least for that short duration before the others woke, where and when, no doubt, his family would just perform their ritual of "readying for work, school or whatever" in earnest around him, perhaps even at times dragging him into their plots with various requests and questions, until they too, ready, would simply part leaving the goblin once more typing to a now half drunk coffee and his jumble of unconnected fleeting thoughts, "...should I tell them then..." asked the goblin to himself here, continuing "...confess here, when they want more, that this is in fact all that there is of me, the sum total of my mundane existence as yet another nobody stuck amongst his little "dailylife" and the bidding of that Moneygod..." but the goblin had always been caught like this, caught that is between a promise made to his wife of some unequivocal anonymity on the one hand, and that other promise to his muse that he would indeed make that "journey to self" by posting across this ether of the Internet on the other, "...so my mask will be real then and I will live this contradiction..." voiced the goblin in the vague morning light

the goblin never expected anyone to do anything, well not for him he meant, in fact, the goblin often remembered that he too, didn't really address anyone beyond his own muse while writing here like this, "...well, there have been many sites where things simply haven't worked out between us where I had have to leave, but as long as I can see that the admin is active on the site, I can lock onto that vibe of faith in the site's future, and post on regardless through thick and thin..." ventured the goblin who himself, was still learning how to post in his own right, "...simply, I make mistakes like the rest of us, I am human then..." said the goblin speaking figuratively of course, continuing "...you see, there are no books about being a good poster, and the majority of writing rules have no bearing here, and if anything are completely off putting, to the average post's reader, as something stuffy, bookish and bygone..." mentioned the goblin who knew he had to think of "good for posting" now, no longer "good for writing" here, in fact, at times the goblin was even reminded of everyones love of sail, with it's epic elegance and beauty that is, fully aware that those supertankers now cruising down the ether of today's Internet, had little in common with "sailing ships" then, an opinion which didn't exactly adhere the goblin to those members of the writer's site elsewhere he had noticed

repost from elsewhere, on being told that he had been banned from a site he didn't visit anyway

the goblin thanked xxxxxx for once more rubber stamping his growing qualification for being on the "banned camp" site, in fact the goblin too, had had his fair share of being banned, but that, however bad, the goblin knew, was not nearly as bad as being told to move on from the local bistro, which happened earlier this week, "...yes mortals, you may now take out your hankies and weep profusely on my behalf..." suggested the goblin knowing that the number of sites on the Internet were far in excess than the number of bistros with WIFI near to his home, "...oh, the pain and anguish of it all..." went the goblin continuing "...what will become of me I wonder..."

"...valid point..." went the goblin who could only point out that writing isn't anything like that which one is imagining it to be here, when one starts out that is, nor that which one has bargained for either, "...there is always a risk of self deception here, that once one builds up a "shared life" with a muse, that one can then at some later point just unshare it, going back to just living on the "dailylife" surface without her again, simply it doesn't turn out like, for it, like a dream diary, or like someone who sees ghosts, is something where practice reinforces the whole sharedness of it..." mentioned the goblin, remembering "warning, last sanity test: you can't get her back into her bottle from this point", was hidden somewhere in the small print of the Muse's pact

and then, as if to spoil it, the goblin turned up with a largish bag of 2cents coins, the contents of which he promptly turned out onto the bistro table with the usual catastrophic results of coins rolling off in each and every direction, with everyone looking on with that smug "well, that'll teach you not to grab a few coins out of the bag each time goblin" look they usually write across their otherwise uniform faces, "...OK, they're all here now, but which one was it again..." the goblin mumbles to himself placing his index finger on each coin in turn, and then scratching it back into the open bag over the edge of the fake marble table with a purposeful screeching sound, that is after reading it then, "..."don't go to them, let them come to you" no not that one, it's too obvious, "the Internet is where the real battle is from now" nah not that one either, too contentious, "the persona is everything here" oh no they're forums members not brainy intellectuals, "the hitcount is ones readership" not sure if I even understand that one myself, "live writing is far more exciting, free and challenging" agreed, but no, it's still not the coin I am looking for, oh where is it..." the goblin continues until he comes across the coin he is looking for which reads "to post is to publish", "...funny, I thought there was more to it than that, what, do you mean to say that I have gone through this whole bag for that one little 2cnt coin, how silly I am then..." the goblin voiced to himself until he saw the people on the other tables almost praying that the goblin would stop  his scratching those coins across the table, at which, of course, a wicked temptation arose within the goblin as he then contemplated a recount, so the goblin first looked across at the others with that sudden devious smile that only a true goblin could muster here, went "...MYAHAHAHAHAHA...", and then placed all five fingers on those coins this, pulling five at a time, no, he couldn't resist it, in fact, the goblin could never resist himself he knew playing with 2cnt coins like this

(the goblin thanked mars bar for the link to wizer's site, saying "...looks like the "last post" thread there will root, at least people are replying and it should be interesting to see if they can keep up with me...", and with that the goblin posted what he had written this morning knowing that he didn't know what he would write till it was done)

the road still winds it's way up the hill now, but on that dull day the driver just mentioned that it was here, from this point then, that the mother had just left her child in the car, perhaps to watch or otherwise, and then jumped off the edge opposite, without adding more detail than that then, so that now each time the goblin looked down at the deep ravine below, a vague but dreadful image horribly conjures itself up in the goblin's mind again, one that changed with his imagination each time, and of course the driver had no reason to lie or make that story up the goblin knew, only that this was his idle gossip here, something to say in passing as one curves along the road, "...so did she hate the child then..." asked the goblin of himself once more as he had before often enough, continuing "...or was she mad perhaps, drugs even, though I doubt I'll never know for sure now, don't think that the driver really knew either..." ventured the goblin knowing that all her belongings, which she had abruptly abandoned, her child, her purse and umpteen other signs of her ended life, would just be there on the passenger seat for the authorities to piece together here, somehow the goblin just placed some coins on the ghost's eye's at the memory of it, and signaled to the ferryman to continue with his journey then, but some ghosts return with the reassociation of the scene each time one passed, so here was probably one of those ever returning types, and somehow too, the goblin never got to ask what the ferryman did with those coins then

in fact the valhalla site, the trolls there, and their writing style had flashed back in the goblin's mind his school days once more, simply the goblin remembered the time when he had turned up at some bible reading session at the bequest of his then girlfriend who, like all girlfriends of the time, probably saw their boyfriend as some cross between ones shopping accessory and ones very own pet "man friday", not that the goblin minded nor understood any of that, he was after all, besotted, desperate, or both, only that the moment the bible itself was ceremoniously passed to him to read in his turn he realized that he couldn't see the actual words for something he had smoked the night before, so out came those improvised words "sorry, I am a dyslexic but this is a cross that he hath given me to bear here everyone hallelujah" as the goblin then passed the bible to the next person in the now somewhat jaw dropped line of Bible readers, and perhaps those dilated pupils probably gave the game away too, so it was little wonder that she, there and then, dumped the heartbroken goblin to make her conquests elsewhere, just that the goblin, for his part, never smoked after that,

repost from a "last post" thread on a trolls site

the goblin showed up readying an improvised speech, he started "...your majesty, fellow trolls and trollops, normal people and lone member xxxxx...", the goblin coughed to clear his throat, continuing "...a troll, if I may be so bold, is not someone who gets banned for making irrelevant posts on "such and such's" site, far from it, he is someone who can turn up on that site, start a random thread there with no subject matter at all and which, within a space of a week or so, becomes their most viewed and replied to thread there...", the goblin's coffee was tasting good as he looked out across the gray city of Geneva again, in fact, the goblin never really felt himself to be a troll, only that what he did over 40 to 50 "last post" threads now could easily be interpreted as such, he continued "...to be on this site is an honor, well for you lot that is, for here too I will fight to be last, thank you mortals MYAHAHAHAHAHA...", to which he put the note pad down on the desk again, his bistro, and that Internet conquest awaited, he simply borrowed Dali's words saying "...the difference between me and the trolls is that I am the troll then..."

the goblin never hid who he was, just he didn't believe that his "dailylife" self was really him while here, that's all, saying "...actors, who do not believe in their parts, while acting, are unlikely to have the audience believe in any of their parts either, and, where the story engulfs its reader, the story teller too, is most likely been possessed by his own story..." the goblin tried to bridge it, continuing "...but you writers all know that much I guess, you've been there yourselves, in your stories that is, oh no, don't try to tell me that it was by some cold calculating thought process here that you wrote your stuff, no you wait for it to come, it's that funny gripping sensation isn't it, in which you type on following something in your minds it seems, building it up, and above all "being it" in ones total, oblivious to all else, especially time that is..." ventured the goblin as if somehow returned at the point to the bistro where he had been before he had started writing this "...gosh, is that the time..." the goblin just mentioned as his "dailylife" intruded on his thoughts once more, yes, like everyone else the goblin's "dailylife" owned the goblin on the outside, but inside it was up to him to make sure it didn't own him there too

the goblin was always anonymous, so really whether he was liked, hated, or whatever didn't matter to that goblin persona he always portrayed himself as, he goblin explained "...sooner or later, I am just haunted by those three questions again, "so what have you actually written for all this posting then", "and what has one learned from the replies and comments too" and "well then, what have you seen of yourself from what you have posted"...”, pausing for a moment, the goblin went back into the kitchen to make another coffee, a dull workday morning was his unavoidable encroaching reality now, so the goblin's only escape could be to cast his mind elsewhere since his family depended on his continued surrender to this present situation, to this society, and just to this living too, even if all those were just compromises on their terms for their rewards, well that much at least was unavoidably clear to him by now, "...ah but, as strange as it may sound, my mind up to a point has a choice of being "aware, unaware, here, or elsewhere", so what if I could master this choice then as something against that all too mundane reality of mine, while also slowly producing a stored body of posts somewhere that thwarts those three haunting questions again, surely that would be reason enough to post here, wouldn't it mortals..." concluded the goblin as the clock just ushered him on now to society's bidding once more, the goblin retorts to the clock "...lift anchor, rig the mind to "elsewhere" boson, and steady as she daydreams then..."

(the goblin had a bad habit of falling asleep if he didn't get a notification once in a while and apologized for it, saying "...it's been a while and I have written a lot, so feeding the thread should be easy now...")


Quote
do you have a photo, goblin

"...pass..." said the goblin, who asked to be forgiven for not posting his photo, saying "...simply, in five or ten years time, I'll be posting another photo of myself, of a face that I have no control over, thinking "but this is not really me, or it isn't fair that it is",  so I, in my vanity perhaps, decided long ago that I won't have a face that grows old here, that I will let people think that I am middle aged forever, if simply because a younger person wouldn't write like this, and of course there's no need to portray an old person here...", in fact, the goblin had had this very same type conversation with someone else recently who didn't see that although she wanted  to have other people appreciate her for her person within, she just had to stick her old photo in the avatar, and all her uninspiring details in the profile, "...so why wear that makeup, those sexy clothes, etc., why care about your weight too, simply those things are just same type of cheap deceptions as these are, are they not, when what it is really, that which most people want above all that is, is to be appreciated for who they really are, but I do appreciate for them for who they are, especially when I am not being bought by some superficial appearance thing here, as their mystery is their beauty...",

(written today, the goblin is in a rather strange mood, saying "...delete this if it is not right here...")

the goblin on that day seemed to remember a time prier to that, when she put her cigarette down a second saying "...see, for all my smoking I don't get ill much, I fight it and, that way, each cold just turns into these..." as she had pointed to a few little inconspicuous lumps, and of course the goblin, if he was listening at all, had just casually taken it at face value, anyway, if she believed in it, it could well be true for her, besides, she just worked opposite him and the goblin had more important things to deal with, like learning the ropes and getting all that work done, though now on this particular day she was on maternity leave leaving the goblin with double the workload, while somewhere outside, part of that sunny London afternoon filtered into the the wide office which always seemed just as stuffy as it was busy, work mostly blinkered the goblin's senses away from all that though, no, here was a treadmill, and the deadline demanded attention, "...another booking flea, get to it, oh and be more careful this time..." the boss said handing over yet another telex written in a code predating the computer reading "16/06/82 15twb, 1swb, 2nts HB, Ramada" as the goblin would then off the date 16th June 1982, 15twin bedded rooms and a single bedded room, two nights, half board, in the Ramada hotel", "...right away..." the goblin replied as he first phoned the hotel to confirms things before sending a reconfirmation telex afterward, anyway loathing it, how he just hated his work, besides, he wasn't accepted there either, let alone appreciated, and all this would have, and should have just slipped into the goblin's memory by now, after all these years, save that the boss was talking on the telephone though all this noise, quite normally until after a minute or two into the conversation he thanked the caller replacing the receiver as if he was in slow motion, where turning he talked aloud, not so much to tell the goblin anything, more just to turn over in his mind what had happened again, saying "...that was the hospital, seems they had discovered a large tumor and had to operate, she's dead but the baby was saved...", the goblin's wife too, was pregnant at the time

("...no, it was 1982..." replied the goblin, but it was a reminder though)

the goblin was not sure what it was all about at this point, but sure, it would have to come across like outstandingly awesome, perhaps the penultimate thought itself inspired by the deepest of coffees even, and yet all the goblin could actually think about was "dailylife", "dailylife", dailylife", "...ok I've rendered unto you enough today don't you think, could we have awesome for five minutes..." shouted the goblin out of the blue, but "dailylife" just changed the tune from "home" to "family" to "work" to "money" back to "home" again, thinking the goblin wouldn't notice but the goblin had and his resentment at it was heartfelt

Post by: fleamailman on July 08, 2009, 11:26:39 PM
"...not really..." replied the goblin, continuing "...in my books, "real life" is opposed to ones "virtual reality", whereas "dailylife" is opposed to the part of one that reflects upon it, simply in could be just as sheeplike on the Internet as in real life, but being aware is the difference that separates one from being a sheep..."

("...and who would stir me from my slumber here..." asked the goblin once more called back)

the goblin had often noted, that the more one feeds the slot the more that slot seems to want those posts again, saying "...and after that, that slot just follows one around too, there whenever some idea for a post hits one that is...", but the goblin also understood that all this was probably something which most people would simply dismiss as some writer's distraction here, and understandably not for them then, "...their choice I suppose, but for me it's still something worth cultivating none the less, if only because there is so much within one that never gets out, and so much outside one that is just borrowed or aging..." ventured the goblin who had dubbed all this "a shared life", repeating, "...the muse's pact goes "honesty, a shared life, and a thick skin", your soul in ink please.."

("...here we go again then..." replied the goblin suspecting that perhaps someone wanted to take his thread again, saying "...ah but it's not what I reply that matters is it, more, what you post of yourself that matters since you will know yourself by it then...", the bistro, where the goblin wrote this rainy morning, played a medley of unwanted tunes, the goblin swiftly blotted them out with his headphones, adding "...I write something everyday but I leave off posting when I've already won...")

the goblin was slowly absorbing the gist of the text written on a fair sized tin of rat poison he was holding, something like "warning, contains a very slow acting poison that works rather like your dailylife does. save that it's both cheaper and less bother, thank you for reading this, and have a nice day human, your sincerely, the resident rodents", "...so those rats are on to a good thing then, right, the kettle has boiled, now where is the coffee then..." voiced the goblin aloud to himself over his laptop this breakfast time, "...actually, it's the same tin goblin..." came the small voice from a crack in the wall

Eureka!...I clench my feline paws... attaining the ultimate meditative state! 

I spy a goblin.
In my catmint induced space ... for I am afterall only a cat .... my nose twitches .. 
I smell decaff coffee ... dear, sweet little goblin, fear not that it is poison ... like as not it is just regular branded coffee full of dangerous and harmful additives...made by humans...for humans .. and in their infinite kindness no longer tested on animals (or indeed dear goblins) .. but tested on themselves.

"...so now my feline friend, would you have me drink some non poisonous coffee here, that I would live a little longer by it..." asked the goblin, breaking off for a moment to ask the girl at the counter for yet another cup, adding "...ah, but the point of life is not longevity, is it now, no, the point of this life, if there be one that is, is to grow ever more aware of it...", while outside the bistro, the winter's rain fell intermittently throughout the goblin's day off, "...well perhaps not then, perhaps today we can delve into inner awareness instead...", the rain was not amused it seems, nor perturbed for that matter

Sweet goblin ... Drink coffee, lots of it! ..
And as Spock would say ... Live Long and Prosper
The world would be a poorer, drab place without you. A droll observer of humanity ...disguised as a goblin. A kindred spirit..perchance?

Press your little face up against the bistro window ... peek outside and see me amidst the sheet of winter rain , acid rain actually but that misdemenaour belongs to Man not feline or goblin... for though feline I walk amongst mankind too.
Yes! Here I am! Languishing forlornly at a bus stop...and... wondering what those three mysterious orbs are.
What alchemical magic is this?

repost from somewhere else again

the goblin thanked the poster, saying "...actually, looking at my inbox this is one of my quieter threads, resembling very much a blog, which it isn't, or at least wasn't ever intended to be...", not that the goblin minded,  he continued "...but anyway, turning back to the difference between "book writing" and "live writing", which I equated before to  something like the "theater" as opposed to the "cinema" for its contact to the audience, simply with book writing, much as I love books, their market share is in total decline, that is for every new reader of a book there are perhaps hundreds, if not thousands, of people who are turning up on the Internet as readers/writers in their own right, so looking at it from this standpoint alone, I probably now have a readership, and feedback too, that rivals a minor author, well, if one adds together all the "hit counts" across 50 "last post" threads that is...", the goblin paused for his coffee again, adding "...not that any of this actually matters to someone anonymous by choice, it's just a result of my "journey to self" through posting..."

"listen you  Saxon scum, us Scots have still got "Kat" from when we raided her tomb in the pyramid next to the pub and the lobar exchange, and unless you lot pay up promptly we will slowly feed her Scottish cuisine, yes, you heard that Saxons, real kippers, followed by haggis and then a fried Mars bar too, ah, bet that sends shivers down your Saxon spines, well if any of you had spines that is, but just to prove our good will in the matter, we will now lower the asking price from 90 pence to only 50 pence here, don't contact the police or be warned we will promptly play bagpipes and recite Robbie Burns to show you just how ruthless we can be when cornered, just put the money in an envelope marked "PM" and post it, I am looking forward to your speedy cooperation in this matter, I remain., yours faithfully, Gorden Brown whoops, someone else
and yet somehow the goblin wondered if the members of this forum really had that much money amongst them

"...simply, you and I are anonymous, the number of posts, the hit rate, and all the other paraphernalia which goes up to create any member on a site actually means nothing because nothing can be proved here, nothing except the fact that I am writing this and you are reading it..." said the goblin whose goal remained to know himself from what he posted, adding "...you can't know the future, there is no way to know it because it is not here yet, but perhaps one can know oneself, because oneself is here all the time..."

"...funny how in writing that other post, about the artificial christmas tree I put up each year, those bittersweet memories of past christmases just crossed my mind again, of those people gone, their houses lost, and all but some cherished memories now..." mentioned the goblin at it, adding "...and I remember too, my grandmother saying how she hated her dreams at night because when she woke up she was blind again, well it's something like that then, but this growing old is being brave isn't it, and besides, with christmas, occasionally it's good to "look back" isn't it, yes, but then more importantly perhaps one should still "look on" now, for who knows how often one will be able to "look forward" that is...", and one day the goblin would just join his ghosts then, simply he knew he belonged to them in the end, "...same journey's end for us all I suppose..." said the goblin in passing

In the old house the mirror to the bathroom is always there, just as it has been since the goblin's childhood, its full length, and, to anyone else of course, would be just another mirror like any other mirror that they pass in the course of their day that is, and yes the goblin too passes many mirrors in his day, except that each time the goblin looks into the depths of this one mirror he see himself yes, but besides seeing his own reflection as most people would, he also sees those ghosts of himself years before, not as some tease, nor as a premise for regret or something, no, only as something "matter of fact", as those ghosts were then, or as they still are perhaps, “...well it's a compromise goblin...” said one of them suddenly, continuing “...we don't get to live on into that “you” we see here, but we do retain our countenances which is more than I can say for you of course, you're dying goblin like everyone else that is, whereas we can't die, ah but we can't change either, simply we're as “stuck aground” in your past, as you are “stuck adrift” in your present goblin, and we salute you for simply we owe ourselves to you then, that's all, dare I put it as it's as if you are the “last post” of us...”

As a kindred spirit ... i share my ghosts in my mirror with you .. for I would be fearsome and bold.

Should I stop Making Controversial Topics in the Hopes that Someone else Might?

"...it's always best to choose those topics which you yourself like, so if you like controversial threads, yes by all means start them, however if it is something that you have no interest in, then you'll still be obliged to continue replying to anyone who replies back, on the one hand while others might equally be replying out of kindness on the other, so that simply by everyone's dishonesty it can perpetuate the thread into farce..." mentioned the goblin who was always selfishly honest here, reading everything yes, but anything that didn't interest him he never posted to, nor started a thread about, adding "...just "what in ones life is worth starting a thread about" and "what in ones life is worth posting" are two clear benchmarks of honestly here..."

the goblin, who had the same "failed" rank too, just laughed saying "...rank me as you wish more, for if anyone judges me from some ranking system, what does that tell you about their own ability to judge for themselves then, and if they can judge for themselves why would they take note of the ranking system then, that is, since they'd know for themselves now..", so the goblin was very happy with his rank of "failed" as would have been harder to live up to one ranked "succeeded"

skip if too long for you

the long departing bus homewards now, the goblin just lets the text type itself again between his mind and his laptop, as a wave of slowly typed words are, written, wiped, rewritten again in some slow repetition until a residue of what the goblin really wants to relate here remains for all to see, that is, while the music is Ravel's piano concerto mov 2, a deceptive piece that starts off normally enough only to slowly break into something deeper, deathlike even, and certainly appropriate to the view of those stepping stone like silent still gathering rainclouds that the goblin has fixed his view on now as all below seems to shoot by out of goblin's focus and consideration, and somehow the scene seems set, "...slot, perhaps I shouldn't have asked dad, no choice there I felt, I mean "how long now until" and "who inherits, etc" that is...", "...goblin, if it falls on you to clear up things afterwards, you have that right and should know everything...", the clouds thicken in their gathering darkness, everything else continues its ignored whizzing course, but the music has changed at this point from the normal piano to the orchestra, something bigger is afoot, something is taking over the piano then "...it's going to rain Slot, it will be for real this time, quite a show don't you think...", "...goblin, it's so easy to be cheap here, you're not cheap I hope, you have to live with yourself after he's gone, all that you did and gave to date would be cheap if you fail him now then, the end will crown it goblin, think about it goblin, you're lucky to even know in advance, you can prove yourself here...", the piano breaks into unrelated high notes, it's erratic now as if drowning, certainly wrong, the piece is breaking up or into something else then as the rain breaks too, and still the scenery, ever out of focus, whizzes by under the encroaching storm that had to pass the goblin knew, the piano tinkers into silence

oh dear little goblin ... what is this talk of rankness?
I do not think you are rank... warty maybe ,, but there are many excellent dermatologists to be found amongst the humans.
And I can see you!
There!
Just under my little dewclaw ... how do you know your concave reality is not my reality?
That your darkening storm clouds gathering overhead is in my reality the descending shadow of my big furry head as I gaze down upon you?

the goblin loved that piece by satie, saying "...quite haunting isn't it...", softly the quiet night outside slowly reminded the goblin that he should have been asleep by now and yet, in reposting his ideas here, he had got caught up in their editing again, for once more those little typos clearly had the hallmark of the dislexsick fairy, and where not actually her then, the likes of ambiguity, contradiction and vagueness vied for attention once more, "...oh yes I'm mad..." said the goblin again at it, continuing "...indeed..., ah but not any old madness will do here will it, no each studied madness has to retain a conveyed continuity throughout, well if it is to be credible to the reader that is, for like hypnosis it is both suggestive, and works through the imagination of the willing subject...", the goblin knew there was more, but the clock and the sandman were quite insistent in their shouting at him now, "...off to bed with you goblin..." they were saying again "...for tomorrow you'll regret not having slept sooner..."

"the reason why one has to explain one another's explanations is that one cannot completely grasp the fact that he or she fails", said the gnome, laughing, "that is why so many people in this flattering world of today do not understand when they really do suck. That is the problem of the world of today".

the gnome had a valid point the goblin felt, agreeing that the world of adults was one of accepted lies and flattery then, saying "...when one knows, often one doesn't want to rock to boat by pointing it out, well there is that yes, but also one doesn't want to betray ones hidden understanding here by just giving it away in an explanation so to speak...", and yes, the goblin too, had played dumb often enough then, adding "...you see, "knowledge" in itself is nothing but mere facts here but actually understanding that knowledge is the source of authority, and it's this authority, hidden or otherwise, which lets you see the failings in others then..."

the goblin reminded himself of something, saying "...members come and go..." but the goblin himself didn't mind who came or went or stayed, or whatever, no, for him only "content" mattered, "...selfish perhaps but as long as I am alive I will try for "content" as each post is proof of how I relate to my life..." explained the goblin, continuing "...but let's see it for what it really is, in that each one of us is actually alone on the Internet with this unspoken tally known only to ourselves of what one has done against what time one has had to do it in, so now, how does one other member here, or a million other members for that matter, change this simple equation in some way, no, this tally just remains constant as some benchmark of self does it not, simply, in life one may be "whatever", OK true, ah but here on the Internet, one is what one posts, that's all..."

"...oh no its more like 50 "last post" threads, not just the 2 sites then, besides, if somewhere gets it first it's just full of typos, whereas if somewhere gets it last it's tidy..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...why should it matter, in fact I make the posts on barbie's site, go through the pictures on karma's site, post across various sites in no particular thought out order, but only the most important sites, somewhere like the lupus site, gets the post last of all because for them it has to exactly right I feel, since kathy is fighting something big there..." but the goblin also knew that none of this mattered, he was anonymous, everyone else here was anonymous too, and who would remember what the gobin had written yesterday let alone last week then, so the goblin newest stuff was crudely written and full of typos, but the goblin also knew that if he and the admin were the only two members left on the site, he would still post, if simply because he needed these "last post" threads for their feeling of deadline and their sense of some expectation from him

once more the bistro claimed the goblin on the outside while inside his mind thought back to the point where Bill Gates had once predicted that "the Internet will be the true media and all others will bow to it", and how at the time he had been laughed out of the media court so to speak, "...ah well, they don't laugh so loud now..." blurted out lone goblin amongst the many mostly empty tables around him, where the unread newspapers, and the unwatched television were just present it seemed, continuing "...so yes, they may point out that their Internet counterpart is not as good, which it true enough I feel, ah but can they claim that their market share hasn't been eroded by it...", simply, the goblin just felt that Bill Gates prediction had been premature though not in itself incorrect

Greetings little goblin .... sage mystic ... little bistro dweller ...and dweller of inner space...
I feel I can call you friend ..nay ... more! ... A kindred spirit ... and  the sum of our combined knowledge must be a terrifying thing to behold.
Indeed gobsmacking in it's in(s)ane profundity.

Goblin friend ... Resistance is futile? I confess I never spied the wondrous Bill gates out in deeper space.
Inner space is your domain and here I admire your wisdom... but out there...in the stygian void of darkness of outer space where...our heroic Sigourney said...In space no one can hear you scream ... it's true...no one can.... it's blotted out by the hiss of orbiting space junk whizzing by.
How weird yet sad ... that along with engineer Scotty's ashes capsule ...  a dumped NASA refridgerator trawls lazily by ... doubtless doomed one day to be discovered by some galactic archeologist... who..might understandably form the mistaken notion that it is an abandoned cyrogenic unit...it's occupant escaped...to where?
Yet... I digress ... back to reality

Apollo 11. 1969 ... was a hoax. A joke. Mankind did not reach the Moon first.
But I did. Me.
Morticia.
Well... that was my reality.....
some will say this is a hoax ...
some will mock me and say ... my helmet has no faceplate
others will mock me and say ... my suit is not sealed ... my tail is peeking out of the back

"...ah, but you are right again dear cat, for, as in scotish law, where there were those three verdicts of "guilty" "innocent" and "not proven", there is much in this life where the same "not proven" verdict can be passed, for simply anything that does not effect ones "dailylife" directly is hard to prove to oneself is it not, and even that which effects ones "dailylife" too, the causes and consequences of which, becomes difficult to prove the further away from oneself the trail goes, therefore one accepts most of it all as "fact" or "truth", for two reasons then, their being either, that one feels that the authorities would have no reason to lie in their explanation, or that one has no other explanation more credible than the one being offered..." mentioned the goblin thinking upon those conspiracy theories such as "jfk's assassination" "dianna's car crash" and the "new world order", though the moneygod was calling him to his bidding at this point, but the system itself didn't need any explanation, it just was ones reality here

the goblin turned up, and then explained "...in life, there is only this "journey to self" here that you can know of for sure, in that, some people will talk about lots of things that make sense attaching still more things they will ask you to believe in, even as far as to offer you an eternal reward or an eternal punishment depending on whether you accept their given line as the truth about your future...", somehow the goblin knew that the next bit was harder but he continued "...so imagine the first of two choices, that you accepted their argument to its full, and did exactly as told to because of some reward or punishment that was coming later, now what would that tell you about yourself and how base you are, simply your actions would be based on self advantage here, something like taking out a mortgage on heaven perhaps, every good action you did would be some contribution towards that mortgage then, wouldn't it...", so the goblin just offered the second choice by saying "...now imagine the other choice, that all your actions good or bad were based on your own judgment of them, no expectation, nor reward nor punishment here, just you knowing yourself by what you do, well if you can imagine these two choices clearly then, and can still choose the latter of the two, thus defying any notion of God, or the Devil and anything else for that matter, saying "I do not look to reward in my actions, the actions are the reward in themselves", then for an eternity you could hold you head up high and look your maker in the eye, saying "well, you may not like my choices but at least I was, as honest to them then, as I am to you now"..."

Oh wondrous little goblin you are blessed with uncanny insight.
I am behove to make a pithy remark ... but ... the compulsion is too strong to resist.

For indeed ... the World doth turn ... and so we all roll out of bed and brave another day.
As the great John Lennon said in a song ... Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans....
And then the World turns ....
Strange too to think that the World is inexorably shifting closer to the moon by 1 cm a year. A smidgin...of no consequence.
And then the World turned.
A mote of humanity gains it's adult teeth .. the last set .. far too young too outlast the rest of it's carbon based form. And it's brain cells start to die ... fading away ... from age 26.
And then the World turned.
Better to be a cat .. or a goblin .. a figment of imagination that is more real than reality.
And then ...
Wait! .... I was'nt  going to say that this time ...
Dear goblin, precious friend ... I say to you ... Hadron Collider.
I am only a simple cat ... share your incisive thoughts with me ...quell my suspicion that this travesty is in the wrong reality.
Todays headline for humans to dwell on ...

Large Hadron collider records high-energy smash
LHC get closer to the big bang


Last night, as scientists put the Large Hadron Collider through its paces in tests, scientists recorded protons colliding at 1.18 trillion electron volts.

Although operations aren't due to fully get under way until next year, scientists at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) have been testing equipment.

And so now I get to say it ....
And then the World turned ... or wobbled on it's axis..

And stop drinking that awful coffee in that seedy bistro and come and share a cuppa with me.

the goblin would explain but he knew that he had very careful what he posted here, there was, after all, no edit button to speak of, no modifications could be made afterwards then, thinking then saying "...anyway, have to thank you cat, for without you I wouldn't be reposting and editing my works again, but it all serves two basic purposes here, first that, like some diary perhaps, these posts form a basic record between me and this "dailylife", no, not necessarily a diary as such, something more random then, more exploratory even, and secondly, that in their production I am changed by them, in that my thoughts and feelings are quantified and reinforced by the repetition of it all...", leading the goblin back to the idea of creating "something of oneself on the inside to counter balance ones decline on the outside" here, "..there..." said the goblin again "done the base text then, have to find the right picture though, absolutely no idea what cats are about, strange creatures indeed...",  finally the goblin would just post the post away across sites to form a tally of himself perhaps, but also to meet an imaginary deadline in his madness

"youzabe'speaking'westcountrydialectyoube", explained to normal people

"...I am sure that there are times when you have wanted to get in touch with you roots then..." said the goblin understanding that people of the new world had advanced the verb "to be" to its present day form, whereas those in the west country of England(Devon for example) have probably retained their means of communication right back from those grunts and groans they had used in the stone age, thus to speak west country dialect properly one has to first focus on a primitive caveman and from there make a ranged backthroat sound followed by some simplified verb tenses, being, for creatures, "Izaba", "youzabe", "heszabe", "wezabe", and for objects "herezabe" and "therezabe", and finally where in any doubt "theyzabe", now for negatives the very flexible "ainnabe" together with the pronoun is simply used for everything...", the goblin paused for the next bit, knowing that he still had to explain how Westcountryman had first mastered the verb, saying "...here again, all verbs are simply their gerund from, that is "to be" verb tenses followed by the continuous such as "going", "thinking", spamming, etc. making it "izabegoing" or negatvie "I ainabegoing", lastly vagueness in westcountry dialect is expressed by the word "like", for example "izabe'smokingmagicmushrooms'like" and "youszabe'trollingthread'like", whereas absolute certainty is expressed by repeating the "to be" verb tense "izabe'smokingmagicmushrooms'Ibe" and "youszabe'trollingthread'yoube"...", and with that the goblin somehow felt that if some raging storm happened to ground ones airplane upon some rain swept island across from the civilized continent here and known world per say, the reader would now stand a better chance of survival since, he or she, could actually converse with the natives, just as long as they didn't either drink the coffee or eat their food that is

One single terrifying shock  .... so overwhelming it takes him a whole lifetime to recover.
This unproven scientific fact ...as any regressive therapist will tell you ... is  birth itself.
Imagine this!
You're lying snug, dreaming and drifting the hours away, floating comfortably in that safe portable, amniotic vat... the humans call womb. Your mother might believe in pre-learning and has those annoying recordings for you to listen to ... so , every now and then you are obliged to kick her in protest..and kick her hard!
THEN!
A great gush .. on a scale of the biblical flood erupts ... panic .. you can't breath .. you must quickly tunnel to dry land ... and so... the struggle to enter the real world begins in earnest. .. and you're crawling and pushing along that tunnel. And what do you get? Someone grabs you by the legs, swings you upside down then smacks you on the arse as soon as you arrive.
Or ... for the lazy in Life ... a caesarian.
Innocence meets Humanity
And so the struggle begins. The steep learning curve called Life.
Sweet goblin ... tis so much better to be a thought ... a persona ... immune to and uncluttered with inner gremlins.
I hope ....
I think ...
oh dear....damn Descartes ...
I think ... therefore I am ....

("...the posts are good, this thread is advancing now..." said the goblin still editing his stuff to post here "...you see, the prize for seeing what you can put into posting, is just seeing what you have got out of posting then...", where the goblin had then stored those replied which he felt merited it, adding "...remember, all this only has to please one person but it has to be constant too, to effect one...")

the goblin explained something saying "..."live writing" is completely different from "book writing", first off, ones post can't be too long since one is competing with facebook here, next off, the "hit rate" is a pretty fair indicator of ones readership and participation, and last off, "the work and it's author are just two sides of the same coin"...", and yet this last point seemed too big to the goblin to explain in one go, even if he also knew that it was the most important and biggest difference with "live writing", continuing "...perhaps it's the same difference as that between the cinema and the theater, where books, like the cinnema then, seem some set record of the something previous , whereas posts, like the theater, have ones audience viewing everything first hand...", at which point the goblin felt there was something else he should add here, continuing "...the total number of hits to a thread tells one of its readership then, and the number of hits divided by the number of posts gives one the "participation rate", meaning that some "last post" threads I do have a high "readership rate", while others have a high large "participation rate", but no thread can be high in both then...", and yet as much as the goblin understood the workings of these threads, the fact that he remain anonymous, simply meant that none of what he had actually written here mattered beyond the point that he enjoyed "live writing" far more than he would perhaps "dead writing" now

“...I can relate...” mentioned the goblin in seeing xxxx's post, saying “...same thing happens on the Internet too, an admin opens up a site in some firm expectation that what the site deserves and merits will naturally occur because their site is perfect so it simply must succeed, but this Internet, much like life in your case, doesn't owe you what is right at all, it just gives you what you get, doesn't it...”, it was as if the lupusbots on their site had at least shown the goblin what it was really like to defy the situation by “making good” whatever little left that was given to them, their situation didn't decide their attitude, their attitude seems to determine things, so the goblin just repeated “...a site could depend on its members which is fickle and cheap, or it could solely depend on its admin alone without any guarantee whatsoever except that that admin will battle on regardless, so the question here is simple, simply, if one replaces the concept of "some site on the Internet" with "you in your “dailylife” here", would you still judge yourself by what you haven't got, just like you did in that post, or battle on like a lupusbot must...”

June 20th and the goblin is thinking that it's his mother's birthday today, wants to phone to say "hello" and that he is thinking of her, knowing that she is too senile to understand anything anymore, so he just admits to himself something saying "...funny, before when she was "all there" before we could talk for hours, and later, when she has "gone on", we'll be able to talk to one another again, but now I am just silent here with her in my thoughts in my thoughts...", "happy birthday mum" those thought are telling him now, but they don't want to remain silent here, some things scream inside one, don't they just

the goblin was thinking that, between "inflation" and "deflation", the government faced with a recession, which they claim to almost over even if they are increasing the number of policemen needed for next year to about double what it is now, will choose inflation if only because the money, through use of its printing presses, remains under government control, simply deflation has no brakes,  so the goblin simply said  "...your savings should devalue by this conjecture then, but we won't know for sure if the real recession has hit until Autumn of this year where investors usually claw back the investment, 1905, and 1929, and the south sea bubble all happened in Autumn, though through Summer one saw signs of something afoot..."

Ah sage little goblin ...

Funny ...
I too have seen clones in the world of Man  .. this phenomena called ... a queue... is a lifelong skill perfected by humans. One sees one and feels a curious compulsion to share in the voyage of discovery and joins the end to see where it leads to.
The centuries of mass migration are done.... there is no empty Eden or Shangri-La left to go ... No Horizon is Lost ... and the ancient mapa mundi's inscribed Here Be Dragons are grossly fictious
Now each time the earths crust shudders and groans under the weight of the compacted herd of humanity there is this thing .... called an earthquake.

Ah well .. you don't think ... the French guillotine perhaps?
Did you know sweet goblin  a new human is born every 2 of their earth seconds?
Without sounding alarmist I say ...Hey! Leave a byte of space for me!  (and my goblin friend)
We have our own viruses to contend with!

Advert at a crematorium .... .
Help Planet Earth ...Donate Your Space ... Be Cremated Not Buried And Leave A Sod Of Space For The Living
I fibbed...I just made it up off the tip of my catty tongue

Do you think you and I will survive extinction if the Mayan Prophecies for 2012 prove correct?
Nostradamus never said the World would end in 1999 ...

In the year 1999 and seven months
From the sky will come the great King of Terror.
He will bring back to life the King of the Mongols;
Before and after war reigns.


Extract from Michel de Nostredame (letter to his son, preface to Prophecies)

But after being surprised sometimes by day while in a trance, and having long fallen into the habit of agreeable nocturnal studies, I have composed books of prophecies, each containing one hundred astronomical quatrains, which I want to condense somewhat obscurely. The work comprises prophecies from today to the year 3797.

Thus. with great relief I deduce we are safe for now ... and the headless humans wiling away their life in queues need have no fear ... their stock markets will continue to crash ... banks will continue to levy extortionate charges ... and the UK will still have to extort the money from their tax payers to  host that poisoned chalice known as .... the 2012 Olympics.

Ah .. and a final word ... next time you visit the nursing home.... give an abundance of well wishes to your mum from your fellow catty philosopher friend.

the evening always brought the goblin primal emotions to the fore, "...I never write for others, you know that, a post has to be all or nothing to me..." his voice was slow now, continuing "...I alternate between "the vision" and "the explanation" each time, well if you write, it's simply that isn't it, you walk between these two states, don't you humans, one has to experience the vision for oneself to its full, and then one has to be able to explain to those who can't see anything...", simply the goblin was trying to explain that those who write lived some shared life like this, the goblin simply repeated the Muse's pact again, exactly the way she had first told him so many years ago now "...goblin it's "honesty, a shared life, and a thick skin"..." she had deviously said, as the goblin just remembered it again, "...and what's in it for me, Muse..." its ghost had suddenly returned to the goblin's mind, "...a journey to self goblin, that journey to self inside, what more could you possibly want, besides what else is yours anyway..."

in fact, the goblin was thinking that he wasn't a troll, though often it just turned out like that, no, more he returned those gifts that had been given to him in kind, simply he was a mirror of the other members on whichever site he was on, it was as if he engaged others in whatever manner they cared to address him in, and ignored them when ignored, true though that he wrote for himself alone, and yet he was always reciprocal by nature

repost from elsewhere, the goblin defending the concept of ones "persona"

the goblin never said that he wasn't mortal, but his persona, which is what we are talking about here, will be around longer than the person who is writing this, the Internet has already seen to that, those backup also serve to extend his persona, simply the goblin didn't know how many times he found his stuff elsewhere unexpectedly, not that it mattered, it was unto itself now, anonymity freed him from caring beyond the fact that whatever he did, if he did it at all, he wanted to do well, "...if you delete this post, or the others, edit them, whatever, nothing changes, at all, since it is just elsewhere, always elsewhere, in truth I don't backup, I network across site after site, but let me explain it clearer to you then, let me guess then,  you see this as one thread on your site, well it is is it not, but to me I see it as the same thread across many sites, and yet  if someone wants to find me or these threads, it's easy since the type of thread and my persona are ever constant here, no it's actually the sites that change, they come and go, think of agent Smith in Matrix then, don't think of this at mere site level, this of actually "you" as a persona across the Internet, feel you can arrive at that then, I don't think you can yet with only your logic now, for first you have to create a recognizable persona and the content to go with it, that's why I asked you for something to link me to of yourselves, it's where ones persona starts..."

“...well, it just happened in an instant, and he was just there right in front all of them, it was like wow, he was absolutely electric, as this god like voice just took over from the music with a microphone that seemed to the capture both speakers and those onlooking fans alike, its unbridled words crashing into ones conscience like a wave of perfection, at perfect pitch, he sang “...I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...” as a primeval surge went up from the gig joint at that point, continuing “...just like the ones I used to know...”, I tell you this guy could do no wrong now, the fans were simply his as if transcended at this point, fed on an ambrosia that only a real artist like this could offer “...where the treetops glisten and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow...”, magic!, you'll be hearing a lot more of this guy for sure, just remember the name "Bing Crosby"  and that you heard it first here folks

hello again my goblin friend ...
On a day like today isn't it lovely to be a snugly warm virtual persona?
The whole of Europe and that appendage called the UK.... not to mention vast swathes of America are buried in snow.
Not forgetting of course, the poor humans idling away the hours in the cavernous Chunnel!
Oh and Europe is floating off by 1cm a year .. doubtless the clever engineers calculated this into their equations and the magnificent underwater umbilicus will stretch and expand as and when needed. Or doubtless someone will have some waterproof sealant to hand.
Global warming is in the news ... along with the heavy snow.
thank goodness I'm only a cat and don't have to make sense of these conflicting reports.

But... I am not entirely immune to the real world of mankind.
Flesh and flab succumb to gravity and swings around my shins.
But not for long!

Quote from: Harry lime, in the third man
800 years and what has Switzerland with its peace given us, the cuckoo clock

"...no, what the Swiss make well is the musical toilet roll holder that plays "Edelweiss"..." said the goblin not joking, wishing he had a picture of it, continuing "...also we are quite good at looking after your money..."

certainly, the goblin thanked the poster for pointing out the plight of the American economy of late, but either way the goblin's mind, or whatever little remained of it that is, was musing on the lines that those federal financial institutions could solve much of that "the market is out of touch, insensitive, or irrelevant to the average American" bad press that they been getting at this point, if they were to better entice the average American to participate more, perhaps by some special issue of bonds that are convertible to food stamps on maturity, "...yes, these "food stamp bonds" could be traded freely on the market, so that the "one in ten" Americans receiving food stamps at the moment could keep track of their investment in the economy then..." ventured the goblin somehow realizing that without some sort of intervention soon, his supply of peanut butter could well be in serious jeopardy

a writer should amount to something

"...wrong again, a writer writes for himself, moreover, someone who is anonymous doesn't even try to amount to something, he just tries to get "it", that which is within him that is, "out", in posts in this case as right to himself as he can possibly make them to himself..." replied the goblin knowing that at the end, the last day if you like, it would be exactly the same for him as when he had first started, "...OK, so what reward should I be seeking here, see how cheap it sounds too, no, those trappings of "dailylife" and these trinkets of the moneygod do not interest me bots, listen then, I'll say it once clearly here, "my posts are all dead by the time I have hit to send button", you amuse me with your assumptions but clearly you do not write from what you have written here, you don't know that all engaging feeling in doing so, simply "you may leave this temple when you can stop snatching this popcorn out of my hand MYAHAHAHAHA"...", and with that the goblin wondered if there was some sort of "tomb of the anonymous goblin" somewhere, sure he would need it after reading something like that "a writer should amount to something" idea here, "...help! more anonymity, and quick please..." he cried, quickly double checking his mask again

the goblin on that day seemed to remember a time prier to that, when she put her cigarette down a second saying "...see, for all my smoking I don't get ill much, I fight it and, that way, each cold just turns into these..." as she had pointed to a few little inconspicuous lumps, and of course the goblin, if he was listening at all, had just casually taken it at face value, anyway, if she believed in it, it could well be true for her, besides, she just worked opposite him and the goblin had more important things to deal with, like learning the ropes and getting all that work done, though now on this particular day she was on maternity leave leaving the goblin with double the workload, while somewhere outside, part of that sunny London afternoon filtered into the the wide office which always seemed just as stuffy as it was busy, work mostly blinkered the goblin's senses away from all that though, no, here was a treadmill, and the deadline demanded attention, "...another booking flea, get to it, oh and be more careful this time..." the boss said handing over yet another telex written in a code predating the computer reading "16/06/82 15twb, 1swb, 2nts HB, Ramada" as the goblin would then off the date 16th June 1982, 15twin bedded rooms and a single bedded room, two nights, half board, in the Ramada hotel", "...right away..." the goblin replied as he first phoned the hotel to confirms things before sending a reconfirmation telex afterward, anyway loathing it, how he just hated his work, besides, he wasn't accepted there either, let alone appreciated, and all this would have, and should have just slipped into the goblin's memory by now, after all these years, save that the boss was talking on the telephone though all this noise, quite normally until after a minute or two into the conversation he thanked the caller replacing the receiver as if he was in slow motion, where turning he talked aloud, not so much to tell the goblin anything, more just to turn over in his mind what had happened again, saying "...that was the hospital, seems they had discovered a large tumor and had to operate, she's dead but the baby was saved...", the goblin's wife too, was pregnant at the time

whatever cards "dailylife" played, the goblin always returned to his posting, somehow the "last post" thread for him was his way of seeing what he could come up with, and to see how he could take form here, "...well yes, I could just write "I win" each time but, with that, what have I actually won..." said the goblin more appreciative of the openness of the idea that anything goes since it resulted in most people forced to face themselves here, "...now, if someone were to ask me "what do I win", the answer has to be "depends on where the challenge is" but in the end the only person who knows if I have really won is me..." ventured the goblin also knowing that without that feeling that others were were watching in expectation, writing could soon get overlooked as one slips back into a life without any real recorded reflection upon it, which as you have probably realized by now about your own life, is exactly what your "dailylife" wants of you

Ah my little goblin ...
I detect wistfulness and sadness in your reflections .. the cat of nine lives shrugs her furry shoulders back .
For she is an achiever!
she is proud!

Be happy for me ... for I am returning from the baser requirements of Life ...
and I have WON!
The loo is flowing freely again! And it was all my own work!
and now ... a moments reflection on that rocky journey called Life.

Yet... another year and another decade draws to a close ... to slumber in our memory .. to invade our dreams and catch us unawares and bring tears of happiness or sorrow ... to fade and melt away and be written over anew with fresh Life experiences. Treasure all memories for they are the fabric of your Being .. of love and learning and hope.
They are YOU.
For You are unique.
The virtual world is awash with even more specteral notions and phantasmal ideas. ... for they do not die. 
Yet I ask ...  can the two worlds ever co-exist?.....collide? or trespass into each others realm?
I find they do.
Sadly ... one of my personas is doomed to fade away. Nine Lives will be down to Eight.

the goblin, late in his life was growing up fast, simply time's tide was finally washing away those last ruminants of the bulwark, where his parents were, leaving the goblin directly exposed for the first time to fortune, "...no, not that I ever depended on them financially but they were there in case, with advice, praise and as a visual benchmark too, so somehow any freedom or independence that will be left in their wake hardly feels a fair exchange at this point, but at least it's me watching them go on, which is the correct sequence in families is it not..." mentioned the goblin somehow thanking death for playing a straight hand here, in that death owed nothing to the goblin and could have played its "wild card" whenever, it still could he knew

Bet you're a female

the goblin was at an age where it didn't really matter, saying "...do you think a woman would make this many spelling mistakes in her posts, no my wife still asks me to take out the trash showing that I have mastered basics, ie some household chores and how to use a microwave oven too, so as you can see I am quite evolved for a male of the species, though all efforts to evolve me further from a "male" at this point have fallen short of her aspirations for me..."

the goblin is boldly defending his mind from the treadmill of its reality again, and although hints of the dull day without did peculate through of course, they were never quite enough to sway the goblin form his heightened state of daydreaming detachment here, saying "...if I become what I do, then the rat race wins by it, for "daylylife" and that moneygod would make Madame Bovarys of us all..."

repost from elsewhere, the "what are you doing" thread

the goblin is frantically chasing his own tail with a passion, thus seeking some sort of spiritual absolution through his constant "meeting of his bills on time, in full, and without comment" as if somehow knowing that this discipline, of self sacrifice to the greater good of ones family, was expected of him now, something that even if so, still wasn't going to make it any easier to explain to any creatures non human here who might be looking on or down now, and if those same non human creatures were to abandon the goblin for his stupidity and shallowness towards life, their stance might be understandable, their opinion "that one wasn't brought forth on this earth just to pay bills" might be true even, but did that actually change the goblin's reality here, simply those bills had to be met

the goblin is weighing the weather against the likely outcome, he sees the rain today as one day's rest bite, saying "...people are like food, one hungers for them after being alone, yes, but all human contact is a digestion process, and then one gets full at some point and then notes that one has stopped digesting them and later one becomes worse than full, "sick perhaps" perhaps, signs of which are avoiding eye contact, becoming over reactive, and keeping conversation to the job in hand...", in fact, the goblin called this problem of over exposure to people becoming "people sick" and although he loved his job, since most people he came across were interesting enough, slowly growing "people sick" was an unavoidable ongoing reality, "...simply, when one talks to someone one pays attention to them naturally, only that that means one has a certain amount of stored attention within one which, if it becomes depleted faster than one can replenish it, causes one to go into some emotional form of debt here, till eventually one turns to auto pilot..." mentioned the goblin at it, knowing it only needed a few days off to replenish things here, not that he would get them though, even his auto pilot was beginning to give out he felt, though admittedly he hadn't quite got to the stage where he was passing down the bus with a Japanese sword chopping off heads it seems, saying "...apparently that pleasure comes  a bit later I imagine..."

"...I suppose that regardless of whether ones life is actually interesting or otherwise, if one isn't writing it down, one is merely trusting everything to a slowly fading memory of past events..." ventured the goblin at it, since writing was the goblin's way at least of keeping things, however old in themselves, fresh in his mind, meaning the goblin's present ghosts were those based on memories, yes, but they were as if present now, he continued "...writing reinforces ones memory in a way that most normal people wouldn't experience let alone understand here, dreams too, have become especially vivid of late, in writing one talks to ones past and past seems to talk back to one, no not "madness" but hardly "sanity" either, more a borderline result from constantly writing things out of oneself..."

I am in a conundrum.... am beset with a dilemma.

Tis that time of the year soon ... New Year ... when masochistic humans burden themselves with noble good intentions and resolutions which inevitably induce guilt and a sense of failiure ...
And as imitation is the highest form of flattery I too will adopt this noble practice even though I am a meerkat, oops, mere cat.
I will stop smoking.
Why did I start you ask? So my canine relations the beagles did not puff away in vain inside those stark laboratories.  
Yay ... I continued the good work!
Already my resolve is wavering.
And a memory stirs of some vague unsettling news report from months back.
A non-smoker human who had a lung transplant from an addict of the iniquitious weed died two years later.
From lung cancer.
Conundrum
Should the lucky benefactor have started a 40 a day habit to keep the lungs in the style they were accustomed to?
Had the original owner not died then ... would he too have died in 2 years time anyway?

I spy the hand of FATE ... and in the end FATE will dictate.
And what an utter relief that I too can leave it in the hands of FATE with a clear conscience and continue to light up.
Indeed I feel I must to continue the status quo

yes there were scores of posts just as there were scores of posters too, the goblin noted, but somehow whenever he himself, looked at the slot and wrote, there was that utter alone feeling of "reaching in and writing out", the goblin just repeated "...it has to be me and it has to be honest..." in fact the goblin was in this respect perhaps alone with everyone else here then, concluding "...one reads with everyone else, yes, but one posts alone, just like one lives with everyone else, yes though one dies in ones own turn, not theirs then..."

the goblin is thinking about those 100 something gypsies that now wanted to leave Northern Ireland because of the violence there that had been used against them, thinking that that is how the other areas will learn the same trick to get rid of those gypsies there too, and then that that violence will be used on other minorities in turn, "...this is how it all starts then, Nationalism starts innocently enough, justified it seems by an economic downturn on the one hand and, on the other, by the situation where both professional begging and the forcing of children into beg are intolerable the average person, so almost naturally it leads to the old idea of "stoning the gypsies out of town then"..." mentioned the goblin thinking back to Germany in the 1930s, where the gypsies were rounded up, incarcerated, and finally killed off, adding "...the situation today has its parallels, just I hope we've learned better than that though..."

the goblin remembers it even now, that fateful search then, how in the late evening everything had just ushered the goblin to his desk once more where, armed only with the strongest of coffees and an aspiring intellect, the goblin clearly understood upon linking up that what he actually encountered here was some vast void of the Internet through the tiniest of portals, that is, he was just a mere IP address on a server somewhere, he slowly voiced "...how the insignificance of the individual is so obvious here, ah but you, o great Internet, do not exist without me or someone to observe you now, your realm collapses without millions of us insignificant selves here...", Harry Lime's words perhaps but nothing was ever new he knew, as the goblin then typed into the google slot "the last person to post here wins" and entered it with a touch of his index finger on the "return" button

Ah my goblin friend ... do we delve into the realms of the occult and mystical deep?

Enter my comfort zone.
tis true the obscure sage Seneca said ...
A wise man lives as long as he ought to ....not as long as he can

Ah drat and damnation ...does this then mean that this gift/curse called Life must be endured to be enjoyed? Are the saintly doomed to be corrupted or suffer misery? And so therefore only a mascholist can truly win this war called Life
No debauched despot explained the rules to me.
Ah well .. it's never too late to learn and turn to a life of vice. ... and recant at that final moment of the last breath ... just incase. I mean you never know for sure do you?

So I shuffle my tarot cards ... as I do now and then .. in the hope of a glimmer of insight.
Ah .. The Devil.
How appropriate ...

I have just had another catty thought ...

This dominant species called Mankind ... ah, Humankind ... must not be sexist in these enlightened times...
i often wonder what the poor displaced homeless of the animal kingdom think of their persecutor?
what do the feathered and the furry animals think?
Tis true that in the dark ages of history humans wandered en masse in some formless mass migration to seek out new territories .. with a surly grunt and a club slung over one shoulder .
Until....
Arthur C Clarke and 2001.
Eureka! Then came the discovery of fire and the invention of the wheel.
Tis testimony to mankinds intellect that no one pointed out and said  .... hey! Make that wheel square not round because it keeps rolling away and we'll lose it.
So .. .  the displaced animals must too mimic mankind and creep out of their shrinking habitats to survive.
I saw a bear the other day ...

("...ah, you're making me think now..." mused the goblin, where certainly the cat's ideas were new, interesting and well written then, adding "...ah, but you should collect your posts together now and repost them to other "last post" threads too, remember that whatever you post here is good, yes, though whatever you go on to repost elsewhere is just that bit more polished by it, perhaps more exact to yourself then, where posts are born of posts too...", simply the "last post' thread was the return of the victorian installment journal now, where the author became known by it)

the goblin was waiting for some gust of imagination to carry him off again, no, not that he disliked his life, nor that his "dailylife" was bad in any way, just that it was so thankfully limited to that same old known reality here, in fact, it almost seemed a strange truth now, so much so, that the goblin suddenly laughed at himself saying "... no, it's funny the way one just yearns for all these silly distractions only to regret that ones life has then passed in doing them..." but even now the goblin just waited upon his imagination for the next all enthralling daydream "...oh, not another distracted life of AWOL..." came the voice from the heavenly clouds above but the goblin by then was miles away it seemed

"about a year" remembered the goblin thinking of his father now, knowing they wouldn't talk about it, talking wouldn't change things they knew, so the goblin was pensive at this point, saying "...no doubt, after he's gone I will ask myself why I hadn't phoned more often, done more than just "being at the other end of the phone" then, but I will also know the truth, that I couldn't have asked him in his decline how he was getting on for fear of being misunderstood here...", so the goblin's role was to listen and to be supportive during this "send off", and yet it was as if both of them had run out of things to say to each other though they still wanted to say something to show the connection, but what..., since it all just returns to those falling grains of silence again

Quote
how do I become a writer

and with that the goblin just laughed, saying "...for surely a writer just writes and that's an end to it, and although ones learns for oneself, yes, one should never compromise oneself for the sake of possible readers here....", at which point that quote "lose that and you lose all" sprang to mind again, so the goblin just continued, adding "...look, the publishing world often rigs things that one is some "front page best seller" one year, only to be forgotten the next, so this Internet by comparison is a level playing field is it not, but the great thing about here on the net is that your readers are "on line" with you, in that, that can be a great help then, though unfortunately others might start criticizing you without coming up with something in their own right, various reason for that then, though one soon sees that they're just guessing here, that is, criticizing without any "writing experience" then, meaning that they won't even come close to understanding your writing then, ignore them, for surely no one can ever understand from the inside that is, and judge fairly too, something which they have no, experience of doing for themselves then..."

repost from elsewhere, women constantly talking about their weight problem

the goblin thanked the ladies for their modesty, or fained shapelessness, but, in fact, he knew that they were only lying about themselves in order to make the others here feel better then, that is when each one of them was a ravishing beauty in her own right unrivaled in nimble eloquence akin to an Amazon, yes, and yet somehow luring like a Siren on some rocky shoreline, "...come now ladies, what any man sees in you is exactly what you make him believe here, which is not the same thing as how you sees yourselves then is it..." mentioned the goblin to his friends again

the goblin wondered what the US had to give to get their two reporters released by North Korea to Bill Clinton, feeling it to be a good thing in itself, yes, but something smacked of "staged" rather than mere coincidence here, "...guess we'll never know for sure then..." mentioned the goblin at it, adding "...but it's tempting to think that, if not exactly staged, it was convenient for all parties concerned, and that in this day and age too, hostage taking still remained both as lucrative, and as good for show business, as it has always been..."

the goblin of course was the perfect size, shape, height and age always, it was just that the person typing this wasn't, but the goblin was no ventriloquist's dummy, no, in fact the goblin would be the first to tell everyone here, that the one typing this was the actual dummy then, saying "...yes they don't make those old farts like they used to...", and do you know what, the dummy now typing this would probably agree with him too

the goblin was slowly absorbing the gist of the text written on a fair sized tin of rat poison he was holding, something like "warning, contains a very slow acting poison that works rather like your dailylife does. save that it's both cheaper and less bother, thank you for reading this, and have a nice day human, your sincerely, the resident rodents", "...so those rats are on to a good thing then, right, the kettle has boiled, now where is the coffee then..." voiced the goblin aloud to himself over his laptop this breakfast time, "...actually, it's the same tin goblin..." came the small voice from a crack in the wall

Hand me some of that rat poison goblin!

It might already be too late .... this might be a historic non post ...
Time is of essence !

Today two intriguing headlines caught my beady catty eye as I pawed the mouse and scrolled.

NASA
Astronauts' urine is clogging the £150 million water recycling system on the International Space Station, Nasa scientists said.
Er.. well.. these things happen. Try using a litter tray instead!
Engineers investigating a problem with the system, which processes urine into clean water for drinking, said they believed the cause for the back-up was a high concentration of calcium in the astronauts' urine.
"We've learned a lot more about urine than we ever needed or wanted to know - some of us anyway," said David Korth, the station flight director.


This is reassuring to an unevolved domesticated cat....
Afterall it took millions of years to evolve the human and only 10 years dogged design to produce the water recycler.

This is but minor on the richter scale of galactic mishaps.
There are bigger, more menacing threats.
Like this one!
NASA
A glowing trail spotted in the night sky above North America was caused by a falling block of astronaut urine, Nasa has disclosed.
 
Oops ... I'm sorry .. that was Published: 4:55PM BST 18 Sep 2009

This is the menacing one!
NASA
A mystery space object, believed to be an asteroid, is set to pass close by the earth, Nasa has said, as astronomers attempt to determine its origins.
Come on guys .. this isn't a 10 year billion dollar budget urine recycler now .. get your thinking caps on!

The object, called 2010 AL30, is set to pass within 76,000 miles (122,000km) of the Earth, or just a third of the distance out to the moon, around lunchtime on Wednesday.

Its discovery earlier this week has baffled scientists, with some astronomers speculating it may be space junk given its width is similar to a man-made object.


Wednesday ... that's today!

Hello .... Is there anybody still there?

"...the average American, well like most people on this earth for that matter, prefers to follow the symbolism rather than the actual substance of politics, that is, real everyday politics unfolds too slowly, and without enough fanfare, for them to take note, let alone comprehend, here..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...for example, which media mentions that one in ten in the US is on food stamps now, or tells you that more Americans go to prison than university today, or of the failing to meet the budget, or that the recession isn't over by a long chalk, etc., no, it's not the media's fault, it's just that everyday politics is either far too boring, or too constant, to be enticing media news, so no, what we get in it's place is fanfare politics, an exotic war on terrorism, state visits, foreign affairs, and the like, in short, we get those very distractions, that we ourselves want, to make "politics" all the more palatable here, while that which is crucially important in this political/economic situation passes beneath it, too slowly to register on the radar here but happening anyway..."

the goblin really had no answers beyond the truth that he was here because the members he felt were smart, yes, but more importantly for him, they had talent, so it wasn't an ordinary forum in that way, "...this thread will end one day, they all do you know, so what, one might wonder, is the point then of all this effort here..." the goblin stopped, remembered in own life too, and continued "...well, if this thread gets me to think about my posting and your replies, and if it shows me who I am by what I post too, then isn't that's reason enough...", in fact, the goblin felt that most people didn't really know who they were for the rat race that so clearly owned them now, "...matrix perhaps, until that moment when something within one wakes up, and one starts to see ones "dailylife" for what it really is, as only one small part of oneself then..."

repost from elsewhere, at the top of the devils ropeway

the goblin is thinking of that daylight moon one sees at altitude, those strange padded clouds that seem an ever still backdrop to the deathlike cold silence there, broken perhaps only by some frantic quarrel amongst a murder of passing mountain crows, over those ice covered peaks and that constant wish to return to the warmth and security below, saying "...one of death's door again, many of them now, just being there quickens the end that is, and how the body pays a heavy price for this courting death experience then...", at which point the goblin's mind raced back to the point where the head mistress had warned the then young goblin against psychedelic drugs, with those words "in search of your inner man you ruin the outer man by it", and only now, all these years later, and at this late point in his life, could the goblin really reply with any clarity, saying slowly "...it seems that those things which do not somehow ruin the body hardly merits any real reason to live either, "life" itself is not the point of ones life here, nor ones "dailylife" for that matter, where standing at one of these death's doors and facing an infinite beyond, well to me alone perhaps, that becomes life's point then, for those deeper "death courting" experiences that is, that's the point..."

"...pick up the sword goblin, give me one good reason why I just don't kill you straight off then..." she wasn't joking too the goblin knew and as "queen of the Amazons"  she must have killed many men, and other women for that matter, and now she so resembled a tigress at this point, beautiful yet deadly, and as any true woman she either loved or hated,  "...I know that you can kill me easily o great queen but all that you've heard about the Eldorado ladies restroom, with that large stage sized mirror rimmed with those theater lights, where below it are endless bottles of hand lotions, creams, perfumes, crayons, lipsticks, all rested neatly above a marble wash basin to matching pink walls, where again a bookshelf filled to the brim with books by "Mills and Boon" and Babara Cartland, together with an uncountable number of catalogs of shoes, clothes, and fashion brands to browse and purchase await, yes o great queen, it's all true, but that's only part of it, there's a free telephone, a television, and the computer to do msn chat on, a "sound around" stereo system to listen to other women like Britney Spears, Madonna and Bananarama, even a kitchen alcove to stew jam and bake cakes in, oh and a catflap to let ones favorite pet come and go as it pleases, and so so much more o great queen if you would just care to join me that is...", which was, more or less, the way the goblin wooed his wife he remembers now, knowing that one had to truly appreciate a woman's priorities before one can actually approach one here

why not start a blog here goblin, there's a section for it

the goblin thanked admin but somehow felt that blogs didn't encourage other people to write, saying "...the overall writing level here on this site is going up, probably because the writers, and non writers alike, are not tucked away in blogs...", simply that the username, not the blog, becomes synonymous with the poster here, "...my hunch is that your freestyle game threads like these are going to become your number one pull here soon, but not as a game, no more as some expressive outlet of each posters, truth is that no one is pushing anyone else to write here, least of all me, and yet, isn't it funny how, like those first innocent drags on some cigarette, it's nothing at all at first, until one suddenly notices that ones day somehow seems dull without posting something in it, that one had actually caught the "posting habit" while probably thinking too that one can stop at any time MYAHAHAHAHA..."

repost from elsewhere, the "what are you doing" thread

the goblin was doing "nothing" in style, well that is, when he should have been doing "whatever" then, saying "...for who owns this existence, if one can't do "nothing" in it...", and yet that fear of not meeting his obligations always lurked ever in the shadows of his mind now, at which point a gypsy was passing a small paper cup in an unwashed hand around the bistro tables to the usual "...si vous plait monsieur,  si vous plait..." with a voice without much expectation, where the goblin just typed on before finally signaling a clear "no" with those upraised flayed fingers of his two hands as if pushing it all away from him, "...gypsy, you are what I am not then, you even live how I fear to live too, and how I hate you for reminding me of that at this point...", sighed the goblin as the clock, once more, set the goblin's pace for his next "whatever" in a life that all seemed so "Arbeit macht frei" at this point for that constant command which it held one under

hello again my sage little goblin friend .... sometimes so sad sounding.

You know ... when cats and goblins can converse it begs the question and makes one wonder.....
Are we alone? Not humans I hasten to add ... there are already too many of them.
Remember Roswell? Anti-vivisectionists would camp outside Hangar 51 now..or was it Area 49 ..
I know not .. for I am only a cat.. and the hoaxers always manage to hoax me.
But I fear for Nessie and Sasquatch ... stay hidden my friends!

Yet no matter how advanced and wise the evolved apes will become before self-extinction .... when they see these hitherto unknown aerial objects the fools will insist on calling them Unidentified Flying Objects when it is so obvious and apparent to a dinosaur that what they will actually see is merely .... a flying saucer.

("...amazing posts..." said the goblin late at night now, in fact, his internet day had been less than enjoyable save perhaps for one email notification from the cat here, "...no, all sites fold in the end, so there is only that trying to keep ahead of the trend then, never knowing which one will actually fold next that is, the strain is the constant mistrust towards me new admins on the one hand, and my own need to have the right vibe from the forum on the other, no point otherwise really is there..." mentioned the goblin, adding "...the reward of this battle was simply that of gaining experience in self marketing and site appraisal here...", but the goblin was too tied to explain more tonight, perhaps he would put it into one of his post later then)

"...ah ladies, a man will never tell you that he actually loves you for your imperfections then, while you will never believe it for the simple truth it is, even when he tells you clearly that it just is, so instead he just tells you that you are perfect, which rightly you don't believe either, where he's just hoping that it will somehow appease you with a lie which of course it doesn't..." mused the goblin adding almost in a whisper and a wasted breath "...proximity and time are all that matter here where men are concerned, they love you for your imperfections again, but you never believe them do you, and still you want to be some monotone perfect when it's your imperfections that makes you so wondrous to him..."

the goblin wasn't so sure at this point, it was as if his very existence was a vortex of ever decreasing circles, diminished returns, and met expectations, no, not just for himself but for anyone who remained within its orbit, "...ah, that's your lot goblin, isn't that that "dailylife" you like to call it, and how you know it well by now goblin, don't you goblin, but that "dailylife" of yours is not the real point here, is it then..." whispered death out of the shadows somewhere, adding "...so you've lost your barrings in all this "dailylife" of yours goblin, well then you only have to think of me here to know where and what the real game is at this point...", to which death continued with those some old lines of his again, saying "...ah the rules, well then let me explain, simply it's like "hide and seek" with me, I close my eyes and count on, meanwhile you have to figure it out, as much as you possibly can, before I come for you, though the only thing is, and perhaps to make this game a little more interesting for us then, is that I don't actually tell you which number I'm counting to, nor what exactly you're supposed to find out here, while no doubt those two crooks of your "dailylife" and that moneygod will try to waylay you to their own ends once more, in other words goblin, just think of it as a "last post" game for real goblin, and lets see how you fare with it now..."

the goblin often wondered if a diet was ever the right way in life, saying "...surely a diet is just an excuse to not change ones basic eating habits while one is not dieting that is, any decision should be long term then, not "I am dieting now" or worse "I will diet this all off later", more "I need to think out my lifestyle here", so if eating is habitual change those habits, if it addictional keep food out of arm's reach, if it is release don't let it build up in the first place, but we are aware of all this already and ignore it thinking one can just diet it off later, so a diet in effect becomes a loan from the "excuse bank" here for the wrong lifestyle perhaps..."

Ah ... but is the world ready for the threat of a little goblin at the controls of a Hadron collider?
Strange little goblin I curl in my basket trying to imagine your wicked little face ...
I do not malign you here...for you can no more resist been delightfully wicked than I can ... let me think about this ... ah...than I can resist spitting out furballs.
Do you find your persona intrudes into the harsh world of Humankind? Sneaks in when least expected and catchs you unawares? I sometimes lick my paws. And alas, I run down the road when I see a dog. Most disturbing I sometimes rub myself against peoples legs.
But there you have it ...

Still .. as usual I digress.. and this mouse under my paw right now is so temptingly distracting.
I have a suspicion goblin. When this hi-tech Hadron collider last malfuncioned (as only a Human super duper scientific gizmo can) ...
Was it you?
Or does Dr Frankenstein really exist? Is he at large? Not the monster...for we all know he had no name.
Did the Hadron Collider create the worlds new tallest man at 8 ft 1 inch and the shortest at 2ft 5in?
 
Or was it GM foods?

"...well, to claim some belief to be the truth is folly mortals..." repeated the goblin, continuing "...it's as if ones just trying to convince oneself of something one doesn't really know then, and that somehow to believe in it will curry favor with some divinity to which that belief belongs to, will it, prove it, one can't, why, because at the end of the day, whatever one says to oneself, one still doesn't know it, one only believes it...", and with that the goblin couldn't remember how many times he had faced this point in his understanding then, it was as if all he could actually go on was "what he knew" and "what he could know", so "knowing" had to come from here then, facing oneself that is, "...look, to know oneself on the outside, one simply has to reflect upon ones actions, but how does one get to know oneself on the inside I wonder, well isn't that where ones posting comes in and what those posts reflect of one...", which was the point where the voice inside seemed to go  "...so what do your posts tell you about yourself then goblin...", "...only that it's a journey to self, while there's still time, that's all..."

looking back, the goblin wondered if it actually mattered all these years later, where those politicians had settled out of court in some country far across the water from here, and yet that water under the bridge seemed ever murky still, as if those great moments of Nixon's downfall and of Clinton's impeachment seemed somehow betrayed by this "Gore/Bush election result" and by the political horse trading that followed in its wake, saying "...well then, was it or wasn't it rigged, and will the voters ever get to learn the truth then, for whose democracy is it if not theirs then..."

the witchdoctor marked the money that had now returned to him again, saying "...see goblin, this way they always returns to me...", the goblin, who had been sitting nearby, didn't know what to believe but the logic didn't seem right at all, and yet here were those notes now, "...oh, it's not just money goblin, it's most things one wants and those one doesn't want even, I mean ever thought that it could be that "that those things you have now, actually sought you out", and that, "that those things you want now, are looking for you still", if so, then the question then is how to call them towards you, spells then, prayers perhaps, oaths even, so what do you think is really at work here my goblin friend...", the witchdoctor smiled as if remembering something, and then continued "...let me guess now goblin, my guess then is that your logic would have it that this blood here is to indent my memory of course, that this sacrificed animal was to jolt some deep feeling within me,  and that the music together with the smoke was to elevate my mental state too, because that's what you see here of course,  isn't it goblin, but in the end you're thinking that it is only me calling out for it to be, well maybe it is then, I can't prove anything to the contrary, but then again just look back at your own past goblin and count the number of times it has somehow seemed more than a coincidence that something has happened, as it has happened, when it has happened, and just when you seemed to have called deeply out for it too...", the goblin didn't directly reply to the witchdoctor who just continued dipping a lone finger into the warm blood again before touching each note in a slow deliberate manner, till eventually, with the last note that is, the witchdoctor just stopped, looked back across at the goblin again, and directly said  "...you know goblin, the real difference between us is that your reason tells you that one can't just call something towards one, so you drown before the boat sinks in my view, whereas I keep calling everything towards me regardless of what my reason thinks..."

the goblin just said "...my "dailylife" and this "journey to self" are two different things for me, the one can accept that there has to be a cut off point, as in "letting go", "a season for all things then", whereas the other is much more like a its namesake, simply a journey that doesn't end...", the goblin could never really stop his journey now, if only because the thoughts came to him much like a musician hears music in the back of his mind ingrained after a session, he continued "...actually, none of this has any meaning in the context of the "dailylife" then, I mean, I am anonymous, there's no reward, sites come and go, members too, moreover, these "last post" threads are about the most impermanent thing that I know of, so it's all just a masked ball played out on this vast sea of the Internet, is it not, yes but once you know that, then what you actually do from there, reflects who you really are to yourself, doesn't it, reason enough to post on then I guess..."

"...a bit of both xxxxx, yet it is a heavy workload though..." replied the goblin, continuing "...for example, if one knows that is dealing with posters from the other side of the pond, one needs to carefully convert everything into their "food stamps" to be understood there, whereas, if it's posters from the other side of the channel, that's a different matter, as in that case one needs to convert everything into "flint arrowheads", if only because neither type of poster is really used to dealing in a proper currency like our Swiss franc..."

the goblin was just thinking about the man yesterday, the man who had sat across him at lunchtime that is, wondering if it really had been that something within the goblin now that had called the man towards him then, after all it just seemed another poignant coincidence after writing about the witchdoctor in his last post, the memory resurged again "...tell me, those six tattooed numbers, they are..., ...", "...real goblin, yes three and half years, two death marches between three camps then..." he just repeated the camp names but only Auschwitz registered, continuing "...I'm Czech myself, I was 15 when we were finally liberated in 1945...", he looked years younger than the 82 he had to be now, he laughed  "... later the Soviets made us enemies too, but I managed to leave legally, and now I stay in rather better accommodation it seems...", the best hotel in Geneva the goblin noted, "...are you Jewish goblin...", "...I'm probably either Lutheran, or church of England but it's like that joke Barry Humpries tells, you know "yes, I'm church of England, I wash my car of Sunday"...", "...well I wash mine on Saturday then...", he didn't seem at all religious, and the goblin wanted to ask so much more but convention was against him again, so he just asked "...what did it teach you...", "...oh, just to live each day at a time I suppose..." and with that the goblin changed the subject as was expected of him, but something had transcended his "dailylife" again, so perhaps the witchdoctor was right then after all, perhaps one does call these things towards one as it certainly seemed beyond the goblin's norm here

 :wink3: Greetings fleamailman ... I have returned .. and missed you my sweet little friend.

Once in a while the webby world falls victim to the daily demands of carbon based life and living.

A partial fib .. this cat is pawing her way about on genealogy sites.
I need not hurry to discover my wondrous ancestors ... afterall .. I am safe in the knowledge that they can not go anywhere.
They are just waiting me for me to unearth them, so to speak.
Though idleness on my part has it's own penalty ... for if I shirk my research I will journey to join them before the last page is writ ... the last ancestor is catalogued, tagged and nailed on the tree.
Did them poor souls ever realise then that centuries later another poor soul would painstakingly pick over their life and enthuse raptarously over their woes and misdeeds.

I shall share my meagre findings.

I'm desperately trying to find I'm linked to a celebrity or someone clever who changed the world! Eternal hope is the source of human inspiration don't you think? ... That and dogged persistence in the face of unassailable adversity!

I found out me great grandfather lied to get in the army in WW1 ... he said he was younger though ... not older than he really was.
Me and me family are not too clever ya know. He must have been the oldest gunner in the army. He got wounded too ... a wagon rolled over his foot.
And he got put on report because he allowed a horse to get kicked whilst he was stableman ... might have been him that kicked it ...it didn't say.
I found someone who did porridge for poaching and unlawful wounding ... wasn't closely related to him. That's good.
This one was closer though ... a tad worrying.
He was a cabinet maker in the local asylum ... hmmm ... wonder what kind of cabinets he made in there then?
It did have it's own burial ground
He was a first cousin, four times removed ..... don't forget the four times removed bit! 

These things are important ... for we descendants are their legacy to the world .. the motes of dust and ashes of their passing .. where they once walked upon the world.
May they RIP .. though I have always wondered whether that pithy non sequitir means Rest in Peace or Rithe in Purgatory ... though I do suspect a silent letter W should be in there somewhere.

Goblin, can I ask a direct question? although any answer you wish in return. Rumour has it you only post in your own thread here?

the goblin had ventured elsewhere at times with uneasy results, saying "...ah but I am not normal and, whereas my abnormality might be accepted on the "last post" threads, I doubt that more serious threads would appreciate periodic visits by someone both roll playing as a goblin and writing in third person now...", simply the goals here were different, that is, between the goblin himself and the humans, for they wished to meet one another the goblin guessed, they wanted to be exactly who they were in real life on the Internet too, as may be, ah but not the goblin then, no, he wanted to enact an ultra ego free of those "dailylife" concerns, no photo then, nor age, for he was in effect a ghost writer here, and yet from the goblin's own experience, a ghost writer was even harder for the others to accept with ease, for their not knowing that is, than where he just roll played on here, and with that back to that haven of that den like thread he knew, saying "...but enough of me, now I must find something to post of myself again before it ends..."

"...in real life it would be perverse to do many things, whereas through the media it would just seem kinky, for the former is acting out a fantasy, very perverse then, at times criminal even, whereas the later would be just fantasizing about the fantasy, something which just appeals to ones libido here..." said the goblin noting the type of books, films, television programs, comics, magazines and the like, most people read, that they would probable refer to as erotic and arousing here, adding "...the Internet must be the ultimate way one can explore ones fantasies without actually being perverse that is...", "...I say, how all very Victorian we are becoming now goblin...", said Alice taking the coarse thick hair bush in her little hand and pulling it hard through her golden locks again as she just looked at him reflected in the mirror of the dressing room table at this point, continuing "...your libido is so dishonest then goblin, and you with it, I even bet that you fantasize each time about someone else too, don't you now goblin...", but the goblin didn't want to reply, and just pretended not to have heard her again, after all what was the point in confirming her suspicions about him, and besides, how could she possibly understand that a man's libido was triggered by fantasies, and not by what he had got grown used to

"...yes that would help I imagine..." replied the goblin, "...but then you would end up with sense by doing it, where "escape" is what readers really crave for..."

the witchdoctor lifted up a finger, looked across at the goblin and continued by saying "...look, just remember, "it's "divide either of those into the number seventy" goblin...", as if it meant something important, or was supposed to mean something important, while watching the goblin's face, until a slight expression of disappointment replaced the more familiar smile for a moment, as the goblin's expression just remained a solid blanc, listening that is, but still blanc as ever, so the witchdoctor turned his head slightly to the side still looking, regained his smile, and continued, "...knowledge goblin, is not "what you know" but discerning from "what you know" both "what it actually means" and "how it has been presented to you", for example "10% steady growth per year" is an unobtrusive way saying "doubles in seven years" which sounds more shocking doesn't it, but depending on which one you hear of course, you'll register it differently won't you, and that's been their trick all along, and yet once you know it as their trick, simply the spin they give towards something betrays their stance to it and you...", “...yes but what about that seventy bit, what's that all about...”, “...well now, “divide into seventy” is like a currency conversion rate you see in the bank only that this time it's for "the annual growth rate of something to the point where it doubles", that's all, for example take that “10% annual growth rate” again, divide 10 into seventy, and  you get seven, that is seven years until it will double, or take “doubles in seven years”,  divide 7 into seventy and you get 10, a 10 percent growth rate then, all rather simply don't you think, even if the economists call it "the rule of 70" and the conversion rate as a "logarithm" here, but that been their way of hiding their tricks again till now,  well let's just think that we're borrowing their secret from them..."

Tis a vision! A calling from the Other side!
Somewhere trapped in the Sixth Dimension ... is Goblin!
I hear his little voice pawing at the fringes of my soggy, moggy mind...
I draw out a circle of stuff in my litter tray in the time honoured Rite of Evocation
Next..... i reverently throw stuff over my right furry shoulder .. and then my left furry shoulder ... cast a pawful before me and cast a pawful behind me.

I SUMMON FLEAMAILMAN

Ah ... dear little goblin ... I've so missed pondering your meanderings and sojourns of the mind.
Crispy leaves underfoot, oh yes ... the aroma of earthy Autumn, oh yes i sniff it!
However ... not to be accused of cowardice ...  with my natural aversion to water I often hesitantly poke my nose out of the catflap and study the horrid, dewy grass with a jaundiced eye.
For I am one of that breed known as, domesticated moggy.

Casting no slur on the beauty of Nature .. today I am musing over wonderous Humankind.
As a feeble feline your words jogged me into thinking of Humankinds GREATNESS ..
And indeed... someone has to extol their virtues... before there is no living soul left on plane Earth to brag of their GREATNESS.
I revered Doctor Who with his deadly jelly babies ... but alas one supposes the Trades Descriptions brigade nobbled them.. or the military .. I mean, did you ever see any for sale?
Ah .. this is pure, naivety you say.
Perhaps .. so instead I will laud some great inventions. Prepare to be astonished!
Comtemplate the Einsteinish genuis in these new, latest and cutting edge advances by Man.

For the fashion conscious modern man with moobs! Pop one in his christmas stocking. .. that is,  unless he's already wearing them.
A poor example you say?
I agree .. i was but teasing and tickling ... for this is the breathtaking invention.
That worthy body known as the EEC has funded ... not a cybernaut  or a dalek ... but Dustcart! Nothing like Dalek! I said Dustcart!
The lucky citizens of the EU will soon be able to consign the chore of dragging their wheelie bins out for collection into the past ... of pre-industrial , non-techno, pre-fineable history.
Imagine for one moment ... no cluttered pavements... no binmen .... just starving vermin deprived of their nibbles ...
Rejoice.. for Dustcart will be your slave.
Able to navigate the streets he will call at your doorstep on demand.

Are the roads going to be crammed with an army of robots with a full cargo homing in on the nearest tip ... weaving drunkenly through confused motorists .. or will they use the pavement instead? Or will they all be kidnapped and sold on for scrap metal.
And should he/she/it get lost due to bad sat nav?
Have no fear for he/she/it has cunningly concealed webcams linked back to a human minder, a big brother really ... called .. yes, you've guessed... his name is George Orwell.

("...I am enjoying your posts again, truth is that I am mostly editing my posts now, meaning that I will probably post two or three in reply to anything you post here, where of course I'll still reply directly in brackets too..." went th goblin again, where in fact, it was only when he reposted something that he realized that it was not actually what he was saying, saying "...how my memory ether deceived me, or how my opinion changes here, but either way the reposting is always a type of shock to me...")

repost from elsewhere

"...no she never really forgives, does she..." said the goblin "...though she might let it pass for a while that is, it will return between them again, these things always do you know, while he for his part lives in fear if he values her, or as some trapped fool if he doesn't, where mistrust, disappointment, regret, shame and a whole bunch of other inner emotions flog the backs of their relationship from that point on..." mentioned the goblin who would never confess it, nor repeat it, nor ever talk about it now, just that from somewhere inside he knew he knew

repost from elsewhere, the newbie section, the "introduce yourself" thread

in fact by now the goblin didn't even know if his libido still worked, saying "...no doubt I'd probably start thinking about the appropriate lines and adjectives at the time, highly likely with all this writing now, transcendental lovemaking, subjective, looking on once more, as in "and how was it for you darling", replying "soft, firm, mechanical, overwhelming, intimate, passionate and somewhat messy too", admittedly not quite what she was expecting to hear then, but her fault for asking...", so, as far as the goblin's lovelife was concerned, all speculations, and those conjectures that go with them, had not been put to test for some while now, simply "bets off" seemed easier to live with here, that is while accepting that at his age, like any age for that matter, there were both hardships and compensations, "...welcome to your transcendental "double life" goblin..." went slot's voice in the background again, adding "...please post your "out of self" experiences here, you usually do, don't you goblin..."

"...actually I'm thinking that we seem to be spoiled for "disaster scenarios" these days..." started the goblin, continuing "...well, what with solar flares, global warming, planetary collisions and alien invasions, sounding slightly more conducive to thought than this global recession with bird flu..." as his hand swayed out its open empty palm as if giving something now "...no I blame the Internet then, isn't it just amazing the way it just acts like a Ouija board to ones fears each time...", definitely the goblin was not feeling normal today, though it had been a long time since he had been anything near sane that is, "...no, better sign off before what I write here just confirms everyones suspicions on the subject of my sanity..." voiced the goblin as he rushed off fearing sanity above all, "...done that been there, no thanks..." came his voice from the ever growing distance now

repost from elsewhere, on someones birthday

"...so here's to birthdays-past then..." quietly proposed the goblin trying to think which one had been his best, adding "...you know, looking back now, perhaps the best gift I ever received, for my birthday that is, was not what I was actually given at all, but more simply an unfading memory of someone who gave me something, where those late people are now in some long gone setting but ever so mine still, and perhaps yours too, whenever one thinks back on them now, so many happy returns means that it's a spell of association behind the gift then..."

("...in the end time is the only winner here..." replied the goblin thinking it as winning the unwinnable, then adding "...but what one does in that time is one's own win I suppose...")

repost from elsewhere, why the goblin wants "out of afghanistan"

"...history goes against hope here, for doesn't afghanistan just fight itself whenever it isn't fighting its occupiers now..." mentioned the goblin looking over a rather extensive list to date, adding "...so if we don't leave in obama's term, then we'll fight iran in the next when the right wing gets voted in after him, where america, clearly as top dog here, can win any war it likes only to forget that it can ill afford to run any peace afterwards..."

"...give up humans..." replied the goblin encouragingly, adding "...after all when and is said and done now doesn't everyone know that there can only be one goblin remaining...")

repost from elsewhere, the "Rolling in it: the highest paid authors" thread
 
"...I will never be known nor make money out of this either, promise..." went the goblin now, adding "...just to become a known unknown at best then...", so the internet was vast, fast, and alive he felt and these were early days too, adding "...no I just want to be a livewriter on forumland here, where the truth is that, like you, I too haven't the slightest clue what that actually means, no, only that it's mine for the trying and I am going to try for it..."

("...pas de chance..." dit le goblin)

repost from elsewhere

Quote
"The media think that they're God. They make people believe in what they want them to believe. They're think they're more powerful then any holy man trying to spread his message to his fellows. For example the campaign adds they show. You don't know what to believe but they want you to believe everything."

"...don't I love this thread then..." went the goblin again thinking upon something now then explaining "...when some economic system fails, it usually sinks into period of terror where not only are resources confiscated but also knowledge is either suppressed or discarded, where slowly those places with enough self-sufficiency and willpower gain their actual independence, true, but even there too, knowledge will be at a premium, for look at the fall of the western roman empire followed by the dark ages then, and just how quickly and how primitive it became without knowledge, so much so that a few generations later they were unable to build a three story building even, where all that lost knowledge, on law, medicine, architecture, warfare, and the like, took a thousand years between ad 4th to the 15th century, to return via italy from the muslim world in what we now call the renaissance...", simply if knowledge is power then its suppression, extinction, or simple replacement by something less powerful becomes a clear goal in itself, something that "the powers that be" can ill afford to overlook then, concluding "...today, for example, ourdearmedia is all either news without views or views without news resulting in either "one's not fully knowing about events" or in "one's not fully understanding them", where simply the only thing one clearly understands from what they do cover in the news, is that there's probably something else that they are covering up by it..."

("...this thread is ever mine, you can post but I always post back..." smiled the goblin)

repost from elsewhere

"...ah now, I do both, I wing a reply in brackets first and then polish it into something better later..." replied the goblin knowing that something worth reading twice was worth writing twice, adding "...truth is that forums are slowly becoming somewhere to read the posters now, that's why I know too that if my persona becomes known across forumland, then my readership, something that doubles up as my feeding pool then, will grow with it, and yet I'm well aware that each new reader is not some docile bookreader like before, no they're active posters in their own right now, turning this into some modern day correspondence as it were, where books are for their lack of this interaction more like watching films, intense films or otherwise, where posting was more like standing on a stage with an audience just there then...", and then the goblin laughed, continuing "...alright, it's more like punch and judy for adults perhpas, but still "live" so to speak, and so much more fun too..."

("...no man is an island where ours is to witness then..." ventured the goblin observing that eastwest build up still, that puppetering therein, then admitting to himself that he never thought that he would live in a age where russia china iran and now iran too would be so resolved as not to be the puppets of the western franchise as to drop their differences standing together so to speak, adding "...if history is anything to go by currency war leads to trade war leads to proxy war , though between outsourcing production while offshoring profits and plunging the country into an insurmountable debt too the multinationals together with the banks have gutted america leaving it a political fanfare so indebted that it can't even raise interest rates by 25basis point, or a quarter of one present in other words, no the west stands down at this point, the west cannot supply europe with fuel because there is no infrastructure to do so, whereas the east only has to be friendly...")

repost from elsewhere, on unrequited love

"...and how one just flays one's back with one's own past each time..." went the goblin relating to that post there, where all those things one couldn't ask her then, and those truths one couldn't utter too are now left unsaid because the relationship is far in the past though all but forgotten not, adding "...ah yes, at times I could hate love itself for showing me as who I was back then..."

"...yes, have to admit wodring that I'm not to happy about things at this point..." confided the goblin not one to drink that drink there but accepting the gesture, before adding "...so guess it's  pneumonia of the right knee if hillery says so, I mean if the empress says she is wearing clothes then who am I to say that I can't see them, but then again if it was parkison's, then it's "all eyes on her running mate" as he or she will then become the next president...", where suddenly des o'conner's voice shouts out to the audience around the goblin "...so there you have it folks, is the voter going to take the money or open the box now..."
