Short story: <i>Cocktail Hour</i>

The scent of eau de cologne wisps the air, cycling through the vents and ducts and secret places.

Short story: <i>The Rapture</i>

Tough tattoos, spiky jewelery, cracked teeth, stale breath, a raised eyebrow, a broken fist.

She tucks her hair up under the her tiara, and lets the ladies fuss around her makeup.

Short story: <i>The Pirate</i>

I'm a roving adventurer; a wanderer on the high seas, a slick and daring silver tongued genius with a taste for exotic women and expensive wine.

When the wind blows at night, sweeping the rocks and gently directing the salty spray of the sea, I can't sleep.

The Best Books Of 2007

Hi everybody, it's the last day of 2007 and I'd just like to thank everybody who's read, commented on, and enjoyed reading illiterarty. The site's been running properly now since April, and we've been doing excellently with getting content online and getting more and more people reading. So I thought that I should do a wrap up blog for the year - the top twenty one reviewed books for 2007.

What I learned in residence in Central America, 2007

Last meal - Nica Buffet!

This is essentially a summing up of our ten month experience in Nicaragua. During which we have had a fabulous time, and we intend to come back at some stage because it's a really great location to spend time, learn new things, and have some awesome experiences you just can't get in Australia.

A school play, a butterfly farm, and leaving Nicaragua.

The virgin on parade. Again.

After Leah left we had a mere scrapping four weeks left on our Nicaragua sojourn, which we were somewhat dismal about. We'd really started settling in and enjoying ourselves, and realised that of course, we'd been starting to take the whole experience for granted until it was indicated to us that soon, we wouldn't be here to have the experience anymore. Like I said, dismal. Combined, in my case, with food poisoning.

Short story: <i>Keeping Up Appearances</i>

I was wearing one oven mitten in a floral print and holding a dishcloth with a picture of a kitten in the other hand, leaning over the oven and pulling out a tray of biscuits when I felt something at my feet.
