Writing a blog is hard work. Sometimes I don't feel in the mood. Often there isn't enough silly in my blood to write something humorous.

So I've decided I'm going to employ a ghostwriter. Ideally someone with wit, charm and a depth of writing I could only aspire to. To be a proper ghost writer, being dead is essential.

I've started interviewing the candidates:

Casper. Friendly. Kept hiding behind computer and shouting boo.

Eolistpetite's ghost. Sat smoking a cigarette in the corner. Didn't write a bloody word.

Slimer from Ghostbusters. Wrote 'sfhsdfhsdhjdf hdsfh xxndjjsd'. Keyboard absolutely running with ectoplasm - probably never be able to use it again.

The Flying Dutchman from Spongebob. Wrote about putting a sock on his ghostly tail. Most promising candidate so far. Tended to use a lot of pirate lingo.

Pepper's ghost. Discovered he was a fake. If I wanted a piece of glass mounted at an angle and an actor, I'd have advertised for one.

Ghost of Christmas Present. Kept wrapping mouse in gaudy paper and giving it to me. Very annoying. More a talker than a writer. Dickensian English becomes tiresome after a while.

After this lot, I've given up on recruitment and decided to write the blog myself.


  1. Haha I <3 the Ghost of Christmas Present.

  2. Good choice, although Casper may have been amusing.

  3. Hey 'Difficult! My money was on the Dutchman. But then, it always is. Aaar! Indigo

  4. I wondered where my smoking ghost was...

  5. My vote is for The Flying Dutchman from SpongeBob SquarePants.

    He always brings a tear to me eye.

  6. Who knew ghosts would suck so much at writing? I think your decision in the end was wisest.

  7. Too bad, I thought you were on to something with the ghost writers. I was hoping for The Flying Dutchman...Arrrgh.

  8. Liking the twinkling stars of your new BG - it a shame ghost writers didn't work out for you though,media so over rates them

  9. I love ghosts. And pirate lingo! But ghost writers are overrated. Right?
