Talking to Blogophiliacs for Blogophilia 49.4

Good evening, or morning or afternoon, whenever you are. We are gathered here in the main lounge on Marvin’s space ship.

And now for something completely different.

Welcome to our first installment of Talking to Blogophiliacs. The talk show where we ask random questions to the group of people who write for Blogophilia.. Or we just let them do what they do best. Talk.

It’s a good thing that everyone isn’t here. Since members come from all over the world it would be quite the mélange of accents. From Jeff’s southern drawl to Ruggi’s Dutch, Stephen’s German, Treveor’s British, Sharon’s Australian, all the mid-westerners and I expect Jos from the Philippines has a distinctive speech pattern as well. My father’s aides are Philipino so I believe her accent would be similar. Now, Marvin must have a Martian dialect though I can’t imagine what it sounds like having never heard one. Nissmech and others have produced videos, and perhaps Marvin (and Commander K) can distribute one so that we may hear what they sound like.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Know what I mean?

Oh look, here’s Trevor who is new to the group.  So what do you think of us so far?

“Oh, by Jove, a bloody fun gang of people. When I get up at5:30 a.m., I read what’s new first thing. Oh you people!  But those pictures puzzled me at first. Whyn’t you have one where the phrase is Yorkshire pudding??”

All Righty. Moving right along – hey Lori Sonnets Diva – what are you doing here? You haven’t written for Marvin in a long time. What’s up?

 “Oh I’ve been allowing my muse to run wild on one of the poetry sites. Gee she’s having fun. When MS went under I got out. But I miss you all very much!” (waving her arms wildly)

 Well good to see you. Now everyone can say Hi to you.

 Oh, oh what do we have here? Kaden, what’s wrong? You’re sitting in that big chair, looking all the world like Edith Ann on Laugh-in. Why are you crying?

“My widgets. I lost my widgets. I’ve looked everywhere for them just everywhere and I can’t find them. Will you help me look for them? I miss my widgets!”

Okay calm down little man. Just a minute and I’ll find someone to help you look. We’ll find them don’t worry.

Hey Juli – wait up – where you been? You started out gang busters with the group – your stories were bloody good and heartwarming. What’s the problem? Why are you avoiding us?

Juli bows her head in shame. “I don’t know. I’m totally disoriented. I just want to finish my book”

Well Jules if I may call you that, yah know most of us figure out our books from the weekly group blogs; that’s how Lisa got going (Lisa couldn’t make it here tonight. She’s meeting with publishers, or fans or something).

 Juli wanders off deep in thought.

Down the lane I see Kate and Tyler whispering. Probably about some new collaborative project I’ll just tiptoe past them.

Wow  Chris is having quite an argument with someone. Looks like it may get violent. I’ll just go over there and make sure everything is Okay. Chris who are you arguing with?

His friend stopped yelling and  looked at me, scowling, with his hands fisted, “What do you want? I’m Destiny and how dare you interrupt me!”

 Oh Okay – I’ll just get out of your way. I’m sure Chris can handle it.

Liam and his twin Chaz are working on their comedy routine in the far corner. They’re finally taking it on the road and will no doubt make a fortune. They didn’t even see me wave.

Over to the right Colleen and Tommy are embroiled in a heated discussion. Tommy is still angry with her for the horrendous road trip they recently took. I hear him threaten to never write another blog for her again. Oh, that would be a shame. Colleen keeps taking sips from her bottle of Bordeaux. Gee I hope Tommy is driving home…

I couldn’t help smiling at Joleene running around showing everyone all the neat stuff she just bought at Walmart. 

Whoops— almost bumped into Dave talking to himself again. Or talking to Daisy Hat. I won’t interrupt them as it sounds like a good conversation.

Jos is walking around listening in on everyone and taking notes for her next entry. Leta is busy on her cell phone.

Hey, hey Steven! Wait up! Clarkster is lurking around as is his wont.

I see you’ve stopped writing again. Is a shame – you are so good and it comes naturally to you – some people envy you, ya know.

Steven hides his eyes behind his hair and mumbles something about sheer madness.

 Sallon! Good to see you!

My philosophy, like color television, is all there in black and white.”

That’s nice.

Well I’ve had enough talking. Think I’ll look at some videos. Care to join me?

  7. Chuck says:

    I think blogophilliacs in space would make “theatre of the absurb”, but maybe not “reality TV”

  8. Liam says:

Hopefully, I’ll get the time to record my voice and upload it 😀 This is the second time that someone blogged about me taking notes,hahaha! Reminds me of Dave’s tell-tale journal blog on MS. 😀 I wonder what Marvin is serving for us?

  14. Juli Hoffman says:

  18. wheniwasaboy says:

    Wow. You know everyone. Great idea for the setting. This made me smile and even giggle a time or two. Well done.

  19. Oh this is brilliant!!! I really enjoyed it… I think Tommy was really mad at me for that 1100 mile trip, but he’s enjoying the new place in VA. Soon he’s going to write a blog for me, rest assured he has a lot to say…..

    Raising my glass of Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon or whatever is handy to you, my friend! 😀
