Superlon Mystery 11: Superlonian homesick blues in Pandalanda

Inspector Strahl and fisher Laxi jumped in to the double-decked watering can.
The Lady of Doorset opened it's mouth and sucked the fellow partners inside.


Stejar Strahl: All I can see is nothing!
Eiseemi Laxi: I think I saw a salmon!
Stejar Strahl: I wish we were back to dear old Blighty!
Eiseemi Laxi: I wish I had some Hobnobs!

Lady of the Doorset spat them out.

Dear slighty old Hob: Welcome to Pandalanda!
Dear slighty old Nob: We're the dear, slightly old librarians. How can we help you?
Stejar Strahl: We want to find our way back home.
Dear slighty old Hob: Easily done. Just hop in to the cage and think of the question.
Dear slighty old Nob: We upload all the information needed.
Dear slighty old Hob: Just don't say a thing!

The librarians of the Pandalanda searched for the useful information:
L´musique Elevator vol 2
The Mists of Pandalon
How do you know it's time to feed the lizard
The Girly Glue
The Essential Knowledge of Nothing
The Return of the Lama

Dear slighty old Hob: It's done. Were almost out of the Shark Jaws, so be careful and be quiet.
Stejar Strahl: Oukki Doukki!
Dear slighty old Nob: Think the Question Now!
Stejar Strahl: Where's home? Why am I allergic to daisies?... HaaZZHUh! HatZuh!
Eiseemi Laxi: Bless you!
Dear slighty old Hob: OH NO!


To be continued...

NB. Patroclus! The whereabouts-name is in the photo.

Some interesting books in that picture. Foucault's Pendulum would have rounded things off nicely.

The Third Policeman! I love that book!

Your Lost post reminded me I was googling 'Flann O'Brien' the other day and found this? (Hope that link works).

Foucault's Pendulum was actually supposed to be in the photo, but it's lost.

And I tought Opc would notice The Third Policeman :)
I noticed the cover also in Lost.

Hi Taiga.

We brought Miranda over to meet you. She turned out to be a cat. Isn't she cute?

albert said...

Oo, she's found a ping-pong ball! Hi Taiga.

lucy said...


Oh, dear!

Sorry, Taiga. We haven't managed to train her not to claw the furniture yet.

We'd better go before she starts chewing the books. Come on, Albert

If there's any damage, Taiga, just send the bill to OPC.

albert said...

Sorry about that. Bye.

We can't wait to see what happens next in Superlon, by the way.

patroclus said...

Superlonian Homesick Blues! Fantastic! And a copy of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail! Even better! And Maida Vale! That's, er, quite a posh area.

I still don't have a clue what's going in Superlon, but I do love the photos. Seriously, I would love a Superlon poster. It would go really well in my sitting room.

taigathefox said...

I'd love to give you a Superlon poster, but I'm not so sure if it's possible to do a decent enlargment of them.

I'll take the photos with my old Canon G2 and I'm not sure of the pixels...

taigathefox said...

And Miranda, remember there's a shaggy doggy in this house.

You see, I keep my eye closed on 4:58 AM. Or is OPC playing with the time again?

Ah, my powers don't extend to your blog, you'll be glad to know. Sadly I actually was awake at that time.

And again tonight, but that's because my blog's broken. It won't let me comment anymore [sulks].

Probably all the monkeying around with time I've been doing.

taigathefox said...

You'll probably have to change your name now to "very occasional poster of comments in my own blog".

Er, while playing with time, are you sure you haven't chosen the option New Posts Do Not Have Comments in Settings/Comments? Stupid question, but I did that once by accident...

occasional poster of comments said...

Yep, I checked that. It seems to be working here at work, though. Either it's all fine now, or someone may be blocking my IP address at home. I don't know what that means, but I don't like the sound of it.

taigathefox said...

Sounds complicated, but I'm a bit thick with these things.
Well anyway, I can't leave any comments on your latest post.
That might be a good thing though.

occasional poster of comments said...

I've just now had the time to finish the nonsense I started. So the commenting's back on. Comment away! (should you wish)
