Tales from the Spaceship

Greetings, human readers!

It’s been a while since I posted anything here, largely because I’ve been seeking new employment (unsuccessfully thus far) within the Planetary Expeditionary Forces, leaving me little time to be creative. Also, I have a new spaceship. My new spaceship is red, and therefore automatically faster than the old blue spaceship I used to own. Should anybody be interested in purchasing my old spaceship, I am selling it off for 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 blurgcoins. Please leave comments below to register your interest!

I have finished moving all equipment into the new spaceship. Glorken has come with me, as has the small canine I procured earlier in the mission.


Other than that, there is nothing really new with me. I approve of the new Thor movie and can’t wait for the next Star Wars instalment. I haven’t been doing as much reading as I should have, owing to aforementioned busyness. I’ve also discovered, thanks to Crimson Peak, that the canine does not enjoy spooky music or bloody ghosts crawling through walls and floors. She may also not like Tom Hiddleston.

Other things the canine does not like include lions, polar bears, wildebeest, reindeer/caribou, walruses, narwhals and hyenas. As a result, we no longer watch the the Nat Geo channels on my spaceship.

Here is a picture of canine’s unimpressed don’t-like-Tom-Hiddleston-or-narwhals face.

Update 2

Also terrified by pet-store rabbits and cardboard cut-outs of spaniels

I hope to get some time to produce new stories and fascinating reports to the homeworld over the seasonal period, but in case I don’t get chance, we the inhabitants of Spaceship #2 would like to wish all of our regular followers (yes, all six of you!) a very Happy seasonal period and a joyous renewal of the Gregorian calendar.

    • Dunno, I’ll tell you on Tuesday, after my interview πŸ˜› Have mostly been spending my time working on my application and also a report-writing assignment. Good times! I’ve been keeping up with your story, though I haven’t had chance to commence since before Xmas I think.

  2. Hmmm, do you have any photos or specs of this blue spaceship? A girl’s gotta know what her blurgcoins are buying her πŸ˜‰

    Good luck on the employment seeking! The Planetary Expeditionary Forces would be lucky to have you. Have you had a chance to see The Last Jedi?

    Also, CANINE ❀ She is so adorable! A little disappointed that she doesn’t like Tom Hiddleston, but there are many other humans for her to choose from. Perhaps she will deem Chris Hemsworth more worthy of approval. You should rewatch Thor: Ragnarok with her πŸ˜€

    Happy New Year, TUS!


    • Happy New Year to you too, Jade! I have indeed seen The Last Jedi. So many surprises, so many twists! So many cute Porgs!

      Alas, no photos of the spaceship, but I plan on selling it to a passing trader on Saturday, so it won’t be taking up orbital room much longer! πŸ˜‰

      And thanks for your well-wishes. I’ll find out on Friday (or Monday, at the latest) whether I’ll be recalled to the Homeworld for an interview. Tentacles/fingers/extraneous digits (delete as appropriate) crossed!

      • Ahh, the porgs! New favorite fictional creature ❀ and that’s great that you’ve got a buyer! Keeping my fingers crossed you’ll get the interview!


  3. That is an impressively adorable canine, sir. Best of luck on achieving the employment you desire, and I hope the new ship is everything you dreamed it would be. πŸ˜€

  4. Love Glorken and your stories. Get that Employment within the Planetary Forces so we can read more of your writing, soon. Many wonderful bloggers, (—Cough!–me included…) have a totally hard time of putting something up this time of year! But when YOU do….I’ll be there! (Cue the Michael Jackson song…)


    • I’m not much of a Bond follower, but I imagine he’d do an adequate job in the role. It’s not something I’d rush to the big screen to see, though. And if a Tom Hiddleston Bond movie had a narwhal in it, I wouldn’t watch it on the little screen, either.
