Mungo is great.

But everyone knows that.

Unless they're blind, deaf, dumb and dead.

Mungo decided early last year to show the members of the Disresponsible Nodpots how to write. On January 10th 2006, he put pen to paper - or rather, paw to keyboard - and started the wonderful novel "In Search of Ramune". Because Mummy Iseult copied his title for her story "In Search of the Moon" (sincerest form of flattery, so don't be embarrassed, Mummy), Mungo kindly renamed his book "Leaf: In search of Raumne."

Mungo's book is brilliant. Just as you would expect. Fast paced, witty, exciting, and imaginative, I have never read its equal! Just as Mungo's equal does not exist either.

To win Disresponsible Nodpot of the year, you do not have to write a brilliant book, nor does a masterpiece automatically win you the title (though you might think it would). No, it is a mixture of points and votes. The points are based on reading as much as writing and submitting. Despite this disadvantage (Mungo only reads brilliant books that he has written), Mungo tied with Mummy Valerie with 3 points apiece (see the advantage of reading a lot?), with Mummy Iseult (who writes a lot) at 2 points, and Marvin and Parsley with 1 each.

So it came down to the votes...ten votes, which would decide the outcome...

I will tell you more tomorrow!

I'm sorry to correct you Mango, but I think you will find I started writing IN Search of the Moon BEFORE Mungo and therefore could not have stolen his title. I think it was the other way around.

I will check this out with Mungo - maybe I took him up wrong, Mummy!

Yes, I think you did Mango. Nice to see you back posting.
