As you can see the paperback was attached with a note stapled to its front stating:

“You’ve found this book!”

Read its pages a little

Or more than a lot

Dear reader remember

The trouble with Miss Demeanour, Miss Understood and Miss Guided …

poster for zizziology blog "Trouble with Miss Demeanour, Miss Understood and Miss Guided"

 

>>> HERE are 3 short examples:

The perfect driver?

Miss Demeanour arrived by taxi at her destination. The irate taxi driver turned to her and said: “There’ll be no charge, lady; you did most of the driving.”

The perfect writer?

Miss Understood sent a number of articles to a celebrated newspaper columnist, asking his advice as to the best channel for marketing her writings.

The articles came back with this response:

“The one channel I can recommend as the greatest outlet for articles of this type is the English channel.”

The perfect secretary?

Miss Guided a doctor’s secretary – was perplexed by an entry in the doctor’s notes on an emergency case: “Shot in the lumbar region.” After a moment she brightened up and, in the interest of plainness, typed into the record: “Shot in the woods.”

 

QUESTION: Which “Miss” might you be?

Video extract from novel: Alice Returns Through The Looking-Glass

“For children of all ages”

 

A story where every goodbye isn’t gone and every eye closed isn’t sleep, Alice falls into her own story, at the cost of seeking the answer to Looking-glass question; much to the rage of infamous book reviewer, Paige Turner who threatens to jeopardise Alice’s writing career in Authorland.

Hoodlemania descends, and together Alice and her predatory blonde alter-ego, Miss Penopause walk the Critical Path to set forerunning hazards and high-jinks in motion in a bid to make Paige Turner eat her words and silence the damning book review before publication – but at what cost? For as Alice learns; it is far easier to get forgiveness than it is permission to get Paige Turner!

zizziology.com loves BBC Radio 4's documentary The Apostrophiser, a grammar vigilante. Interviewer Jon Kay

Since 2003 an anonymous “grammar vigilante” has been making his mark by correcting bad punctuation displayed on Bristol’s shop front signs and placards. The mysterious man, who operates in the late hours, regularly camouflages rogue apostrophes with self-engineered stickers through the use of an 8-foot adapted long stick and custom-built ladder – admitting to his nocturnal activities to interviewer: Jon Kay, for BBC Radio 4, he denied committing a crime, quote:

“It’s more of a crime to have the apostrophes wrong in the first place.”

He went on to disclose his campaign began when a council sign displayed: “Open Monday’s to Friday’s”, shortly followed by: “Amys Nail’s” see picture below …

Press to play track below:

Complete song lyrics are as follows:

“Push the cow over the moon,

Who swept the tide out with a broom,

Send a letter of reply,

To the ocean’s tide,

But the tide did not return,

And the orchestra adjourned,

When the poets cancelled lunch,

Oh this caused much fuss.

 

“And while the priest was busy drinking diamond white,

Oh what we were searching for we couldn’t find,

Oh no, no, no, no.

 

“Push the cow over the moon,

Who swept the tide out with a broom,

Send a letter of reply,

To the ocean’s tide,

As the seagulls flocked,

To mock Elgar’s symphonies,

Well angel Gabriel,

Booked a flight to Tel Aviv.

 

“And still the priest continued drinking diamond white,

But what we were searching for we couldn’t find,

Oh no, no, no, no.

 

“So the bride and the groom,

Argued the off side rule,

As the majorettes,

Threw their batons too soon.

 

“Ah, ah-ha.

Ah, ah-ha.

 

“Push the cow over the moon,

Who swept the tide out with a broom,

Send a letter of reply,

To the ocean’s tide.”

>Push The Cow Over The Moon, music & lyrics by Ida Barker.
