Two things...

First of all, is everyone else having trouble going beyond the first page of Comments, or is it just me? For some reason I can't find any "Next page" button...

And I've just been going through the comments marked as "Spam"- even though none of them were spam. For some reason, at various times Blogger reckons you might be spamming the comments section and so doesn't show what you've written (which might explain some missing posts). But I was going through it and I found a message from Teena, my Thai translator. Hi Teena! I think translating the short stories is a lovely idea, and you're so good to even offer to do it. You might have to check with the publisher that it's ok to go ahead, but you absolutely have my permission (if you haven't changed your mind by now...)

And, because no short Blog post is complete without a picture, here's a little doggy.

Mary Hiashi said...

Hi!
It's been awhile. I am happy to say that I got through this semesters exams. Which means that I only went to school for about 3 hours this past week. That was good. But now I'm sick...So that sucks.

I also have to go to school tommorrow...*Sigh*

Mm! So on Monday (I know that no one really cares) night I made crepes for dessert. What was awesome about the entire ordeal was that my brother bought some ice cream from the best creamery EVER. It was vanilla bean, so it was just wonderfully wonderful. In the morning, for breakfast, I had some more crepes. This time, however, I mixed some matcha into the ice cream and then ate it on the crepe. It was EPICALLY delicious.

I also made peanut butter cookies on le vendredi avant le lundi. Ils etaient partis avant le jour a ete faite. (There should be an exante gu on the first e in etaient I think, and somewhere in ete).

Alyson said...

ahh... makes sense. My friend is called bubbles because she always had bubble mixture where ever she went.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Hi and I swear star just commented... Stupid malfunctioning iPod!!!

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Oh I just remembered another nickname..
Skittles cus I'm always eatin them!!!

Alyson said...

its the same on my computer. hmm...

Mary Hiashi said...

That is a very cute puppy by the way.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Star??? You here or was it a glitch????

Alyson said...

My friend ADORES skittles... and jelly beans

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

I'm eating them now!!!
*offers skittles*

Mary Hiashi said...

I hate l'ananas. Too sweet for my tastes.

Alyson said...

Mary Hiashi said...

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Alyson said...

Hi Sparky. Did you sort out the thing with Flame?

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Hunger Games!!!

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

I can!! But I don't want to see ur comments...

Alyson said...

Oh my God! Sparky, I didn't know you liked Sons of Admirals!!

Mary Hiashi said...

Oh! Sorry.

It was just...Kind of stupid. And I'm not a big fan of Peeta.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

I HATE peeta!!! The only time I cried in the last book was at the word Real!!! I hate that word!!! Why couldn't she say not real and end up with Gale!!!

Mary Hiashi said...

I really have to learn how to use Blender. Or at least some sort of animation program. I have a great movie idea...I'm just limited by what I either don't have or don't know!

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Mary are u a team Gale??

Sparky Braginski said...

I only like one of their songs.

And yes, it's been annulled.

Alyson said...

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Poor Star!!! Not really!!

Alyson said...

They only have two songs...

Mary Hiashi said...

Yes. I'm team Gale.

Sparky Braginski said...

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Star the reason your comments aren't working is cus u can't kill a super llama!!!

Mary Hiashi said...

I will. Not right now, because I'm not in the mood to really read the Hunger Games fanfiction. But I promise that I will.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Ok!! And sparky what sort of training!!! I like to sleep rather than train!

Sparky Braginski said...

...

Figure Skating.

Mary Hiashi said...

I will say right now that I cannot skate to save my life.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Ohh nice!!! Im a football/soccer/cage fighter sort of person...
Another one of my nicknames is Cage fighter!!! I'm not sure why I have that one...

Sparky Braginski said...

Well I can't swim to save my life, so we're even.

Sparky Braginski said...

I LOVE SOCCER!!!!!!!!!!!

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

I love water!!! I'd live in it if I could, id also ski all day if I could...

Mary Hiashi said...

Hikari ni wa is a great song.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Football is amazing!!! I play striker!!

Alyson said...

Do any of you know who Hatsune Miku is?

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Nope if it's Japanese or manga I really don't want to know...

Mary Hiashi said...

I'm more of a music/arts/writing type of gal. I don't do things that could potentially hurt. I also like yoga. Yoga is fun.

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

I love pain!!!! That's not normal but it's true!!! Im not a creative person...

Mary Hiashi said...

Hatsune Miku is awesome! I also love Kagamine Rin and Len, Luka is okay, I also LOVE Kaito!

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Yeah star we do!!! Derby county ladies FOOTBALL club is who I play for!!

Alyson said...

masicist (i think that how its spelt)

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Yeah I'm one of those!...

Mary Hiashi said...

Well, I don't like football, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, basketball, or any other sport you can think of. I hate them all

The Shadow Ripper (Rim) said...

Wow I could never hate sports!!! Especially basketball and football!

Mary Hiashi said...

Masochist

Alyson said...

But we have all of them (apart from soccer) here in England.

Sparky Braginski said...

Soccer, Skating, Writing.

That's what I do.

Now I must go skate.

Alyson said...

Derek- just something i dreamed up- I think it would be pretty awesome if at some point, Skulduggery got to the point where"For the first time in four hundred years, the dead man wished he could cry" or a derekified version. i wrote a few drafts... it looks possibly promising

Mary Hiashi said...

@Abbs - If you dropped kicked me I would defiantly shoot you.

abbs-a-roo said...

Kinghog said...

*Yawn*

Kribu said...

It seems that if I click on the comments link from the main page of the blog (i.e. http://dereklandy.blogspot.com/), then the comments open in a separate window and getting past the first page is not straightforward.

However, if I've opened a blog post (by clicking on the title of a specific post, getting to e.g. http://dereklandy.blogspot.com/2012/02/two-things.html, then the comments display on the same page and the "newer" & "newest" links are there as usual.

Hope that helps anyone who has had trouble with it!

Shadow9 said...

*points bow and arrow at Abbs's face* Don't push it...

Kinghog said...

I'm not rude....

...just tired.

abbs-a-roo said...

*says sweetly*i wasnt pushing it i was just laughin.

Kinghog said...

*hangs up 'do not disturb' sign and takes nap.*

Kinghog said...

*yawns*

Shadow9 said...

*points arrow at King* Can I shoot it instead? (It because you have not specified Male or Female)

Kinghog said...

Doododoododoododoodo.....






...why is noone talking to me?

Shadow9 said...

Because you're asleep?

Kinghog said...

Feel free..
(Told flame I'm male erlier)

Shadow9 said...

*shoots King's foot* I'm bored...

Kinghog said...

*wakes up, eats do not disturb sign*

Kinghog said...

*pulls arrow out and eats it*

Shadow9 said...

That's poisoned you know...

Kinghog said...

Did I mention I was hungry?
Cos I am.

Kinghog said...

*rushes to toilet*

Kinghog said...

*muffeled reaching*

Kinghog said...

*walks back in wiping breakfast off of chin*

Shadow9 said...

It doesn't make you throw up. It liquefies your eyes, make your own stomach acid dissolve your own stomach and rots your digestive system. And it can cause bad breath when inhaled or digested.

Kinghog said...

.. I feel better now.

Kinghog said...

Eh I'm probobly immune.

Rachel said...

Wow...not been on in AGES!!! allo everybody!!

I read somewhere someone was movingto Inverness?! Thats my new found turf! kinda... been here 5 years :P

so yeah...just to let yas know, i'm still alive!!!!!!

Shadow9 said...

It can take a few minutes to start dissolving your eyes. Or I could shoot you again.

Kinghog said...

...possibly part of my powers.

Kinghog said...

Go on then....


It was tasty.

GenesisAggelos said...

DL... I don't trust you >< I worship the ground you walk on of course, but it has to be said I don't trust you...
I've learnt only one thing from your 'bright ideas' and that's that every time you have one, one of my favourite characters dies, or gets possessed, or turns into a statue. This does not bode well!
PLEASE, oh Golden God! Hear my plea! Do not inflict more pain! I shall sacrifice a Mars bar (or chocolate bar of your choice) in your honour! *dances around a fire*

In other news... I'm never on the blog, only on the chat :( This shall be remedied!

Shadow9 said...

*knocks three and fires. One to an eye. One to the heart and one in the stomach. Each spot they hit starts to hiss and steam. Kick to the shin for good measure*

Kinghog said...

*eats sacafice*
...What? I said I was hungry..

Kinghog said...

*Eats all of the arrows*
Crunchy...

Kinghog said...

*Eyes melt*

Shadow9 said...

I gotta go! Bye! *hugs*

P.S. If Flame gets here and you see him, tell him to go here ~

http://meetthegoldengod.blogspot.com/2012/02/flame.html

*looks at deleted comment* Um...

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Derek I wanted to point out that on page 177 of the UK Playing With Fire, even in the new paperbacks (By the way, THANK YOU SO FREAKING MUCH FOR THOSE. I NEARLY HAD A HEART ATTACK BECAUSE OF THEIR AWESOMENESS), I found a pretty-well-hidden spelling error:

Skulduggery's left hand came up to Vengeous's face, the fingers flexing, and Vengeous swatted the hand away before Skudluggery could push at the air.

It says 'Skudluggery' instead of 'Skulduggery'. I just thought you might want to know...

Cluainn Fhada said...

Well done, personally, I always write in sort of sequence, with one copy usually that's in order and usually a refill pad that's little snippets of this and that and usually lots of doodles.

Derek, you went to college for a while at least, right? And you did animation I think, right? WHAT DO YOU PUT IN PORTFIOLLOS?! cause I have like no clue, and while I'm full of ideas of what to write, I'm very lazy when it comes to typing. I'm not s typer.

ValkryieCain said...

Haha, Valkyrie V. Cain!
So true!! Skudluggery. I never noticed it until you posted that! I had to go back to my freeking awesome new paperbacks to check it! Arent they just freeking brill?! xx

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

THEY'RE SO AMAZING.


I love the short story in Mortal Coil! It's hilarious!

ValkryieCain said...

Oh and Derek, remember a few blog posts ago, you asked what to put at the back of book 7?? Well, i thought of something there now, its a little late, but its good: What if you wrote a mini book of names. Just random names that you might have squeezed in as characters, but never go the chance...? Maybe. Possibly. Please? Look, im one of those people that don't get good ideas, unlike you, Derek. This is the best Idea i've had in... EVER, Really... :) xx

ValkryieCain said...

yeah love it...! xx

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

I can't believe Geoffrey almost got eaten by a shark...


And I love the back covers! I even got a coat to match the coat on Mortal Coil!

*is currently wearing it*

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

First!
