Stupid Philip K Dick/banking acronym humour

It's a narrow genre I'm working to expand.

So, if the United Bank of Kuwait was the United Bank International of Kuwait, it'd be UBIK. Wait a second, these coins are out of date...

Yes, needs work.

Still nothing!

Well, we're a week in and there's still not much here in the way of content. I want to put up my comments about Durdane, but it's going to be a few days til they're ready. In general, I hope to have a substantive post here every week, so I'm not going to start publicising it (in my modest way!) until I've got a few in the bag and ready to roll. General categories will be:

What I read - vague book reviewish things, not like a formal review, more of a "my take" sort of thing;
My complete works - being a post to or about all my published writing, and perhaps some of the unpublished stuff;
Stories of note - links to interesting articles and why I think they're interesting;
Jokes - if I think up any jokes, I'll post them here!

So, I'm just getting started here, haven't even told anyone about this blog, but I'm already thinking about comments in my own mix of starry-eyed optimism ("My blog shall be a lightning rod for debate! Hurrah!") and watery anxiety ("My blog shall be a lightning rod for debate! Uh-oh!")

Timely, then, that this post arrives from John K on his "All Kinds of Stuff" blog.

John K is a great cartoonist and an all round good egg. I've never commented on his blog, but I like to read it partly because I love old fashioned cartoons, but I also just like to let the enthusiasm and good natured vibes roll over me.

By which I mean "Standby!"

Editor, edit thyself!
