Some Kind Words From Two Friends I Met On My Recent Travel Adventures

A letter of gratitude for a minor deed I performed on my travels...

As an author perhaps one of the best ways to find inspiration for your stories is to travel the world, make new friends and experience exciting travel adventures.  I've met many new friends on my travels and I recently received a photo as a gift from two new friends I met on one of my recent travel adventures, together with a note of thanks for a minor deed I performed.  I therefore thought it would be a nice idea to post their kind words on my blog…

The two tigers soon calmed down once
they realised they had met their match.
"Dear Charles

We just wanted to wish you a big thank you once again for saving the life of our small child the other day.  We don't know what we would have done if you hadn't been there when little Sami wandered into the path of those two stray tigers and we will forever be grateful for the bravery you showed as you sprang into action and taught the two ferocious beasts a lesson they won't forget in a hurry.

We were also grateful that you were able to take time out of your busy schedule to pose for a quick photo with the tigers after you had showed them who was the boss and returned Sami to safety.

How To Save The World In Twenty Tweets... (Part Three)

Eric clarifies his motivations.
Over the last few months on twitter I’ve been tweeting short quotes from my book How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy, and I previously collected some of these quotes together in a couple of posts called How To Save The World In Twenty Tweets… (Part One) and How To Save The World In Twenty Tweets… (Part Two). 

As it’s been a few weeks since the last post, I thought it was about time I collected the final batch of tweets in a post creatively entitled How To Save The World In Twenty Tweets… (Part Three).

So here they are…

15) "...if she realised you were only snogging her as part of a plan to kill her entire species she’d probably feel a bit huffed.” #HTSTW

16) “I mean, I’m tempted to save the world … not the spanking stuff, obviously … just saving the world.” #HTSTW

Sneeze Page: Five Of My Favourite Posts

Charles Fudgemuffin Goes Green!

Recycling old rubbish...
I’m a firm believer in recycling, so when I recently read a post on another blog discussing the concept of a ‘sneeze’ page, whereby you basically recycle your most popular old posts to create a fresh new compilation post, I was instantly intrigued.  As well as the green aspect, my lazy side was also attracted by the thought of reusing old material, and so after reading the article I decided to compile my own sneeze page.

So on that note, here are five of my favourite posts to have previously appeared on the Charles Fudgemuffin blog:

This post features a selection of weird hidden features (known as Easter Eggs) found on the internet and it gets more page views via Google than any other post on my blog.  It features some reasonably well-known Easter Eggs such as the YouTube snake and facebook hidden languages, but also showcases some less well-known internet Easter Eggs such as an amusing website reporting on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and there’s also a mention for a little known trick found on wikipedia.

Eric And Jixyl The Alien Discuss Anal Probes

Eric meets Jixyl The Alien … in 3D!

"You're definitely not doing an anal probe on me, like."
A couple of months ago I posted a 3D CGI video trailer for my book How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy which featured two of the main characters from the book, Eric and Jixyl The Alien.

The follow up video once again takes place on Jixyl’s spaceship and this time I've recreated a scene from chapter two of the book.  The scene begins at the moment when Eric finally starts to realise that Jixyl is really an alien and the whole encounter isn’t just an elaborate TV prank.
