Angela Slatter is an Australian writer trapped in Brisbane, Queensland (not California, dude) by a malfunctioning vortex manipulator. Here she recounts how she got into the guest blogging business and talks about herself in third person. She also blogs over here about shiny objects that catch her attention.
Jeff: Pssst. You. Wanna blog-sit for a while? There are a few people here already, but I kinda need someone to take care of the memory cathedral; someone not too fond of sunlight. Maybe youâ€™d like a holiday?
Angela: Sure! A free blogiday? Why not.
Jeff: You just need to blog a bit, write something smart and funny.
Angela: Sure, no problem, Smart and funny is my default.
Jeff: *grabs bags and heads out door* Cool! Bye.
Angela: Bye! Donâ€™t worry about anything. *Brain immediately goes blank, not one funny or smart thought appears, not even when she taps the top of the food tin. However, three large cats do appear as does one Evil Monkey (wearing a fez). Oy.
