I write like James Joyce, apparently

One of those mildly silly internet test thingies came to my attention. The person who tweeted it admitted to writing like Dan Brown[1], so I clicked to have a look. Basically, you paste a lump of your writing into a box and it tells you which famous writer your work most resembles. Or something. I decided to feed it my moderately long post on the Doctor Who series finale, which made it come back with this result:

I write like
James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Which presumably means that hardly anyone gets past the first few sentences before muttering “what the photon is he on about?” and giving up in disgust….

[1] Financially, this might be a Good Thing. Otherwise, not so good.

Weight and Stuff Report – 15 July 2010

Yes, I’m back at Losing it[1] HQ, which means that the daily reports will now come with added weight. Err, with added weight reports, that is. And the quite shocking news is that despite one or two[1] quite substantial restaurant meals, the odd big cooked breakfast and a glass or two of beer, my weight today is actually a wee bit less than it was before I left. Must have been all that walking I did…

Talking of walking, here’s something I spotted while walking in Swansea: some slightly strange cherubs:
