Kyle Sandilands And The Suicide Bombers

Dear Cosmos,

It's come to my attention that it's been a full ten years since I won a a national writing competition with this story. Ten years is rather a long time, and if it's not terribly much trouble I'd like to put in a request to win another one please. After ten years and only one win, you start to feel like it wasn't actually a win so much as a clerical blunder. Maybe the winning entry was called Forgetting Argos and the judge was a bit dyslexic or pissed or something.

Anyway, I'm entering another competition in the next couple of weeks and it would be really nice if you could look favourably on my entry. Hell - another clerical blunder is cool with me. Totally cool cool and cool.

Keep up the good work. Maybe think about doing something about Kyle Sandilands and the suicide bombers... wait on - that sounds like an excellent name for a boy band. Kyle Sandilands And The Suicide Bombers. Live on stage! One show only! Brilliant!

Hmm. Maybe, Cosmos, you and I can swap jobs for a while. You can be the fuck-about that is me and I can take care of all the really big stuff.

Cheers mate,

LB.

I read your story and I cried.
Good luck with the competition.
( it wasn't a fluke, you're good )

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. If you don't win, you can always start that boy band. I'd buy the cd.

You know how I feel about that story. If you don't win something soon, I will make you an extra special Kat prize. Do you like bacon chocolate chip cookies?

Btw: my word verification - baccon

Sorry about the crying, Isabelle. But thanks. And thanks and thanks :)

Thank you Y. Got to finish the story. Next few days, I feel. So far I'm happy with it. Plenty of room to fuck it up though.

You keep promising to bake me some Kevin chocolate cookies... why does that sound so wrong?

That was really your word verification? Weirdness.

I agree with Isabelle, it wasn't a fluke.

Hope you're okay after that dreadful dust storm.

I'm so sad for Oz.

And good luck in that writing competition!

Thanks GG. The dust storm was weird more than anything. It wasn't like we were sand blasted by it and it wasn't unbearable outside, it was just a bit windy and a lot dusty. All the photos of the red dust you see were taken between about 5am and 7am as the sun came up (I start work at 5.30am so I eperienced it all). The rest of the day it was just kind of hazy and it cleard completely by the afternoon. It was dramatic but not nearly as bad at the Victorian fires earlier this year. The reasons for it happening are not goood signs though.

That drought's been going on too long, I'm sad for your beautiful land.
