Story of a lost journalist

Early morning rambling

Filed under: Just talking — Cris @ 05:43

Its 5:30 in the morning and I am sitting here in front of my computer with an empty jar of jam next to me (the same jam I was trying to stay away from a couple of blog entries before – today Devil Cris won the battle).

I cannot remember what time I went to sleep last night. I had an annoying sudoku puzzle held on to my hands and I was trying to figure out why I couldn’t fit a 6 in a box. I was also trying to come up with a children’s story. I was told before that my writings would be perfect for children. I wasn’t sure if I agreed with that. I, for one, enjoy my writing you know. It can’t be just kids-only stuff.

But what would a kid like to read? When I was 10, I remember being fascinated by a book that had a couple of kids flying in a chair. Children should like fantasy and mystery. But what if today’s 10 year olds are different? Maybe they like technical. I remember preferring Johnny Bravo when my techie-cousin went for Johny Quest (funnily, both Johnnys wore blue jeans, black t-shirt and had bright yellow hair).

Comics should be a unanimous kiddies-choice now! I forgot! Kids never like being referred kiddies. Rephrasing that, comics should be a unanimous youthful-choice now.

We got the newspaper here now. There is always a column or two in the editorial sheet besides the editorial. Imagination is a good gift to have. Cause right about now I can imagine Paul Krugman growing long black curly hair, turning thinner, younger, pimply, Indianish and finally morphed into a weird and careless looking woman in black. The economy/political writing turns into a piece of pathetic humor. And the title now says “Ms Cris’s corner” (Crissie Corner will not be considered! Kids and I share a few same sentiments after all).

  4. Your posts are good for any Age group who like to Think beyond thoughts and Imagine Beyond Imagination… 🙂

    As Kids Me and my Best Friend used to read The adventures of Tin Tin, and as now, we watched the movie The adventures of TIN TIN in 3D :).
