I'll do it!!! :D oooh yeah let me Jamie!! ME!! ME!! ME!!! :cool:

Of course I cant guarentee the content will acurately portray the original in any way shape of form when Im done... but for you Jamie I will try! ;)

So what is it about? Rip roarin tales of pirates and wenches? textual manuscrips of the bilge? the great farnarkling challenges of life? huh whats it about eh? See!!! Im interested!! Im keen!... whats it about eh???

Kind regards me!! :D


note... the editor of this post reserves the right to knock back the offered manuscrip if its not to his particular idea of normalicy or celabate seamanship as per the legendary Jamie of Uncas unless clearly stated as a work of fiction and utter nonsence which in Jamies case refers to said celabacy as its well know he has a sheila in every port and a few stashed around the globe for those momentary lapses into landlubberite that hes known for :D

I could so too do it! :p

Of couse there would be the issue of translating what Id edited into Americanize or a version of English neither of which I speak really well :rolleyes: but the smilies are an added bonus reserved for here I pwomis Jamie I wont use one single smilie in the editing!!

Well... I could do it :rolleyes: I think ;)

Normal? Well... I know normal!! I DO!!!... well I think I do :confused: I used to know... hang on a tick... yeah I did... dont anymore but! :D

I sense that these are more likely to be short stories. There is a thread.
Umm..wait to see. It ain't a spy mystery...More like a series of short stories about sailing, bicycling, sheep ( Dingo your ears are up ) education, small town life.. A bit for just about everyone.

All I keep staring as is a ream of typed pages gathering dust. It's time to get off my transom and do something about it.

Yep ears perked right up at the word "sheep"!! ooohhhh Johnno ol mate have I got a story for you!! :D courtesy of Jamie of course ;)

Phillip mate... your too seriass mate sorry way it is... no thats okay no need to thank me for pointing that out mate my pleasure ;)

Jami... your a dear! :D mmm bedda watch meself I can see another sheila teasin session comin on!! :eek:

Id wait a bit Jamie... maybe someone with some ability will tottle in wine glass in hand ceegar in gob and offer their services... just watch ol Donn hes a spellin nazi and is mad keen on sintax (whatever a sintax is!) gramma an such nonscence... us mob would just go totally nuts if we got hold of em :D

ahem well they would!!! :p I wouldnt you know me mate you know I woldnt do somethin like that :cool:... dontcha :eek:

09-18-2006, 12:27 PM
Keep in mind though...these nits and pieces were written when I had returned from work, was relaxing and above all, not paying that much attention to grammar, spelling etc. They wewre written " off the cuff " so to speak. I have never reviewed them, never attempted to change them, and never attempted to edit them.

Wild Dingo
09-18-2006, 12:41 PM
Okay cross posted with all that :rolleyes:

30 pages? A full story??? yer what!!! :eek: short story is right mate! whew what an easy "chore"... I feel sorry for anyone that edits my writings!! shortest would be 20,000 words! longest close to 800,000 :eek: yeah I sorta get into the story as I write it :rolleyes:


or would be looking for additions, spelling errors, etc. Not a post full of... Fill in the blank.

Well there goes my offer! :( ask Donn about me an gramma sintax ect ect Im stuffed but by god Id love to have a read could maybe make some suggestions but wouldnt attempt spellin an such cause Id stuff that up totally...


Mine is written...To me that is half of the battle.

"Written" is not a battle its the best part of writing the most enjoyable part as the words flow and charectors come to life... thats the good bit... this what your proposing is the battle!!


To me, the key for sucj stories is to be funny, humorous and interesting.
We get too much on the news everyday that ain't. Most of us need a break

Same here mate same here... firstly I write for me... then I write for others... more often than not when I like what I write others will as well... life itself if so full of troubles trials and trivails that a good story will transport you into another life another time perhaps and an adventure within your mind... if it contains humor thats an added bonus that carries over into life

The majik of words :cool:


Heck...send Dingo the same chapter and we'll compete...I don't mind losing to dingo

I didnt know it was a competition Phillip? :eek: you probably wouldnt loose either since your so seriass and Im totally off the wall most times!! :D

uncas
09-18-2006, 12:52 PM
Ah Dingo...the words do flow with all of the typos etc. Each is a separate entity. I minced a lot of words, perhaps even stretched the truth if it fit, wrote about sheep and bicycling, Wrote about the local small town diner where only locals are tech allowed and toursits are frowned on.
Umm the list goes on.

I never rewrote papers in college. What I wrote, I submitted. I sense that the profs and their lackeys wrote no better or worse than I did so why bother.

The only comment I ever got on a paper was:

This is a bit long, perhaps subtitles would have helped. Granted I got an A-...guess the - was due to its length.
Then again, perhaps I bored the grader to death.

So what you are saying Phillip is, ya got a gentleman's "C"!
I bored them to death, forced them to skip a few pages and have them give me an "A" just so that they could move on to the next paper.
I'll stick with the "A" not that it made qany difference in the overall picture. :)

During my junior year, I had to take a course in Professional writing ( what ever the heck that means ).
I went to class the first day...kept my mouth shut ( a surprise ), looked at the the material to be coveed during the semester as well as the final project..a grant proposal and notr an exam.
Scratched my head and asked myself Why this...oh yes, it is a required course...I have to take it.
Went up to the professor the opening day with the paperwork in hand. Told him that this was stupid and I did not need it.
After listening to me for a few minutes, he finally told me that he agreed and that to meet the basic requirements, they should have lunch on Wed. to cover anything covered in class.
I agreed as there was this really good looking " hot potato " who ate lunch on campus on Wed. :) and I had no trouble taking the time to be in the student lounge during lunch hour.
Anyway, made it through the semester ( without going to class ) and suffered through a few lunches with the prof. I suffered as that hot potato had no interest in me at all no matter what I did.
Final requirement was a grant proposal. Sent him one I had submitted and received 20,00 US. He gabve me a "B" for the proposal and a "B" for the course because he did not like the format I used.

Wild Dingo
09-18-2006, 01:56 PM
Funny that you say you were in your 30s Phillip... That was the age I finally got my high school certificate! I aced English and Politics but failed science miserably and only did 1/4 hour of biology!... Im colorblind :rolleyes: couldnt see the bloody colored thingys in the first petri dish the put in front of us... told the student next to me and then asked the tutor bloke to show me which ones were the blue buggars... he looked at me like Id given him a toad on toast then asked me to leave and go speak to the course supervisor... so I did Social Sciences instead and aced that... man my proudest moment was gettin those results!! :cool: English 100% only one in my year group in the state to achieve that score Politics 97% highest in the college Social Sciences 95% in the top 5 percentile in the state... amazed the hell out of me!

I loved the English class... I was the oldest of them all INCLUDING the lecturer and his supervisor!! :D gawd it was a hoot! this young lecturer would find me before the class give me the days work ahead of the class and ask me to give him my views! :D

I did have some problems with grammer and such as like Jamie I submitted whatever I wrote and never edited anything... he asked me why I didnt and I said "mate you have 8 little tackers at home and try editing anything! you get what I write score me on what you read Im cool with that" usually Id add "son" or "young fella" just for kicks! :D He and the supervisor also had some probs with my usage of what they called the "Aussie idiom" at the time I had no idea what an idiom was let alone an Aussie one! Once I spoke they were content to understand that I wrote the same as I spoke but insisted I work on and study up on proper English for the score ;) I tried... sorta... not much but I gave it a go :cool:

I think I enjoyed English and Politics the most... fascinating topics...

I got tossed out of History in the first week had to be changed to another class before me and the smartassed up his own rectum idiot lecturer ended up snotting each other... and ended up having to forgo it all together after the snootty nosed acedemia lived no life moronic twit who though having never lived a life outside of acedemia and was just out of bloody nappies sheila they gave me had a stand up all out barny in the class and in the corridor... both came after I asked quite innocently why there was no Australian history in the course... none narda zip!!...

Both of these two friggin idiots said much the same thing "interestingly enough Shane theres more interesting history and knowledge to be gained from the course material than Australian history" Sorry but I sorta lost it and my voice raised a tad "Are you trying to tell us that there is more historical relevance to us Australians doing this course in Chinas Mao Tse Tung or the USAs Roosevelt years that anything thats happened in our own past?" "well yes actually if we look at..." that was it no more kapow out it came "BULLBLOODYSHYTE!" and it would be on for young and old... I wanted to learn I took the bloody course to learn AUSTRALIAN HISTORY... NOT bloody Chinese or American history!... nothin personal just my belief that we as students at an Australian college doin history should have been learning at least one semester of Australian history! But these dipsticks wouldnt budge one iota both believing and the course supervisor believing that Maos China Roosevelts USA and the great depression and its effects on USA society had more bloody relevence to us than anything Australia had done in its short history!

so anyway I got tossed on my bum from history :rolleyes:

But it was great going there and lead to my completing several years later the only Uni degree ever gotten by anyone EVER in my family! :cool:

Donn, same prices at college for writing a paper for someone.
Nope, at those rates, I want references ( verified ).

This is all in fun. If someone wants to read them and critque them. Hey I don't have a problem.
I already know that they are literally " in the rough ".

I guess I just enjoyed the intial putting the stuff down on paper. But, after reaching so many pages well.
And I am in the process of dusting stuff off in the livingroom. Lots of dust on those pages.
Eithwer that or put them on e-bay or just wait for the garbage collector.

uncas
09-18-2006, 03:06 PM
Nah, I'll send them to someone who has a good sense of humor ( nothing personal ). They were written in fun and should be read with the idea that they were supposed to be read with a sense of humor.

You are a perfectionist and one who would want to critique Tolstoy, Mann, Thoreau, etc. Those authors are more up your line.

and the references prove my point.

In response to Phil (csoh), I do think it might be a fun project and am aware that laying such a thing down then coming back to it is very helpful. It may be like pruning a favorite rose bush; the love of the thing requires the pruning of digressions, however painful it may seem at the moment. The result can be a lovely shaping that draws the eye naturally toward the blossoms as a part of the whole and not a distraction from it.

Maybe I should have said that "He used to be lucid, comprehensible and friendly on the Forum. He is none of those things on the Forum lately."
I have never met him in person. I only have his persona here to go by.
If you want to try and tell me that the persona now is the same one that posted this thread in '06 then that's fine. I don't have to agree with it.

I've tried to help Jamie when he appears confused about what's being said in a thread only to be bitten for attacking him. I even contacted several members to see if he was OK.
Jamie doesn't want help or compassion. His choice and I'll abide by it.
I'll also call it as I see it when he starts weirding out.

So, I have come to wonder how much some of you have changed..I put up a post, and someone mentions ticks; ie, Lyme Disease association. Wonder who that was Doug. The innuendo was not nec. but you throw it in gladly just to twist the knife. I posted that yes, I was having a lot of difficulty with my Lyme Disease and asked the forum to have a little understanding. That was all I was asking. What do I get in return ad still get daily from a few? Of course I snap back. And Doug, if you were so concerned about my well being, you could have PM'd me and not a bunch of other formites.*

I would be willing to go through it for you.

While not so good at spelling myself or grammar I do have one really great talent.

I find most words that are misused and or misspoken.

Comes from having a big Vocabulary.

THings like people using the wrong word:
the storm coming at us will have an affect on which sails we choose. should have been Effect.

Those kind of things and spotting hidden oxymorons and such in the written page.

I have been told that I excel at finding a better more precise word for those sentences that need more power.

I have a 15 megabit DSL so I get 200 Jaguar poker run pics at once from brother Craig in Phoenix.

Your turnWell, that wasn't the question, now was it, Mark?
The question was- "When was the last time you posted above the Bilge?"

Just to appease you- I worked as a boatbuilder for a living and built a few for myself as well.

DougPics... most people here are more than happy to supply pics of their work and many do because they are proud of what they have done.Doug.

Pics of my first boat, a simple pram or my 15' Lyman don't exist.
I have a few construction photos of my 16' sharpie somewhere but they need to be scanned.
There's an entire thread on repairing Sedge titled "Breaking the rules ... Again" if you'd care to look it up.

That's what I got. Let's see yours, Mark's and Phillip's.

No, more interested in the work you did..When Airlie was being rebuilt, the pics were daily.
Start to finish. So, where and what did you do to any of these crafts personally?

As to what I did on these boats- I'm a carpenter, Jamie. That's pretty common knowledge around here. What do you suppose I did? Sew the sails?

Some believe anything..That's true.
Some believe that you are sane. Some believe that all your woes are from a tick bite. Some believe that Mark never escaped from an insane asylum. Some believe that Phillip and Mark actually believe half the crap they post.
I believe I'll find something else to do for a while.

My stuff is on the server. Take a chance and do something more than waiting for the lumber truck and do a search. I am busy watching your world collapse around you.
