OK, time to fess up.
A long time ago I started designing a Tarot deck. Last year a publisher bravely volunteered to bring it out from the cyberwilderness and actually publish it. There, the story so far. Now, the news.
Yesterday I got an email from Schiffer announcing that the 10 complimentary "author's copies" of my deck are on their way to South Hackney, via Byakhee Express. No, sorry, it's FedEx. My mistake. So, here's the "poster" announcing the happy event. The Deck is now flesh & blood. Or ink & cardboard, really. Welcome to the family wee bundle.
And to round up a day of wonders, behold! young Olufemi's got himself a girlfriend. Olay! Her name is Adebola; Bolita for short. She just wandered into one of our tactical briefing sessions, out of the deep dark forest, sashayed her way into our midst, batted her eyelids at poor Femi...and the rest is mythology, as they say. And here they be, the happy pair. Olufemi's showing Bola the newly-minted book and he's bragging a bit, saying: "I'm in it, don't you know..." And she's saying "Blimey! That's nice." And "So, who's the blindfolded bint with the dog, the cat and the rat and the snakes on her bonce, then?" And so on. We're all are really happy for Femi, who, we all think, works way too hard and has but few distractions. Bola will see to it that he doesn't overdo it from now on. She's awfully glamorous and very good-natured, but you can sense the iron claw beneath the velvet paw. (Atta girl!)
PS. I've just noticed a misspelled word on the poster. Will mend. Also, for those not familiar with my menagerie/family: Olufemi Mubarak, the leopard, runs my secret services and funky ops department.

Thanks, Steve! (Too tired to pontificate, today...:-) Just don't buy your copy from Asda/Walmart. Still fuming about that...Grunt.)

Thank you, Deano. Although I'm not sure why anyone would want to learn more about the Gorgon condition, as it's rather creaky and wobbly, and all the diodes down both legs ache like hell, and the ones in the right arm aren't too clever eithere, and... Moan!
As to Life in General...well, to quote Marvin again, "Life...Don't talk to me about life..."
I have moderately good storytelling skills but I'm no more psychic that anyone with eyes on his/her/its face and the willingness to use them properly. Back when I was still doing readings folks used to tell me I was pretty good. But then again, it's all so subjective, innit?
And that's the best I can manage today. I'm thoroughly whacked.

I was thinking about doing just that, BunBun, but I've been dealing with some snags issuing from the physical manifestation of the deck; and also not well at all and all that. Ah, vile bodies... But I will upload a few samples soon, perhaps even start an album. It's high time I started experimenting with them, dontyouthinkso?
Meanwhile, today I'm uploading my favourite card and a couple of "old stuff" thingumybobs (not all that old, mind you).
Much grooviness to you.
