It's a crime! (Or a mystery…)

The Aurelio Column: Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2012 Update #TOPcrime2012

Ciao, my bellas!

Please accept my apologies for the lack of my esteemed column over the weekend.  (I have just heard that the great festival-going, author-in-shades Kevin Wignall is a big fan of mine. Thank you Kevin!)

Even she-who-is-in charge didn’t get to put up a post.  She took the laptop with her and left me the mouse to play with.  Well, she didn’t leave it intentionally, she forgot it and I played with it.  Luckily for her it’s cordless so there’s little damage; only a few scratches from my claws.  She then discovered that the mousepad on the laptop wasn’t working.  It was an IT disarrster of a weekend.

We should be up and running again properly tomorrow.  I just got given ten minutes for this fluff-fill column.  (Nowhere near enough for you all, I know.)  She wants the laptop back to do some research, she says.  And she keeps talking about dwarfs.  Don’t ask me.  What have dwarfs got to do with crime?  Answers on a postcard please and don’t forget to lick your stamps before application.  This licking business is being mentioned a lot too…

    If only, Kevin, my friend. Sadly the South Wales Police won’t let me out of the country as I have such a huge fan base of bellas I need their security and they tell me such things ‘are not cost effective for the tax payer’. It’s a lot of rigger-me-role just to get to the vet’s up the road, you know. (That bit suits me fine, but don’t tell anyone please.)
