About the guy who writes this stuff

Howdy.  Thanks for visiting.

In “Anecdotal Tales”, stories will be told.  Some will be fun, some will not.  Some will be great, some will be less so.  Some stories are true, some are merely possible.  I hope you enjoy these short little stories that I create.  I try to keep them all pretty PG-rated and amusing.

Sometimes you’re in the mood for a certain type of story, so I fine-tuned my categories to try to help you out.

The Romantic Side– Once a week I try to delve into dating, couples, or “how they met” stories.  It keeps us from being cynical, right?

Stories in Bars– I still think some of the best stories in life start with, “So I was in a bar one time and this guy came up to me…”  Silly, weird, mythological; these are my favorite to create.

The Tall Tales Tavern– In The Briar Patch, characters from mythology, folk tales, and any old story stop by to swap stories and have a drink.  These are all filed under “Stories in Bars” as well, but TTTT are my favorite to write, so they get special attention.

Mylar claims that she is vital to the writing process.

As for myself?  I’m Philip, I like to write stories, and I like to read stories.  I work as a projectionist (where I watch stories on a big screen), a comic book shop guy (where I read four-color stories) and as a barista (which is basically a bartender with sleepier people who like to tell me their stories).  Oh, and as you can guess from the start of each new entry, I like quotes.  Especially from Mark Twain.

I’ll take inspiration from wherever I can get it, so if you have a notion, please share!  Feedback, oomments; all are usually welcomed.  As it stands, these little stories come from my imagination, what my cat put me through that morning, or just general craziness that is life.

And now you know.  If you like a story to break up your day, feel free to follow along.  I’ll do my best to keep things entertaining.

    Brilliant humour, and awesome photo of your 'Mews'. (<< Heh heh.. Like what I did there?!?!?! ;))
    But mostly, I loved this part;
    "and as a barista (which is basically a bartender with sleepier people who like to tell me their stories)."
    THE BEST!!!
