Anubis In London

Anubis In London

Quite often when Renfield R. Renfield was on his walks through downtown London, he’d encounter a homeless person who often wore a cardboard sign around his neck sporting a clever slogan in hopes that this would inspire people to give him money.

He of course had given up on Renfield ever giving him money a long long time ago.

Today however Renfield noticed the man wearing a cardboard sign around his neck that sported the slogan NOT DEAD YET.

Renfield was so impressed by the slogan, he actually reached into his pocket…

… while the homeless man blinked in sheer astonishment…

… and pulled out…

… a gun…

… and shot him…

Renfield then stood over the body and used a felt marker pen to cross out the words NOT DEAD YET and wrote I AM NOW.

He then walked into a pub that made a particularly good steak and beef heart pie to buy one to take home.

As he walked out of the pub, he noticed a figure wearing a metallic cyborg looking jackal head standing over the homeless man and cutting out his heart.

As the figure stood up and walked past Renfield, the metallic cyborg looking jackal head bore the facial features of the ancient Egyptian god Anubis.

“Wow, that’s weird,” Renfield thought to himself as he bit into his steak and beef heart pie, “I didn’t know Anubis was a cyborg.”

To be continued.

      I never saw the movie Stargate.

      But I came across an illustration on the Net a few days ago that showed an Anubis with a metallic cyborg looking jackal head.

      That served as my inspiration for this.

      I suppose that illustrator saw the movie Stargate.

      Just like I saw a homeless guy in Vancouver yesterday with a cardboard sign around his neck NOT DEAD YET.

      And the first thing I thought of was my character Renfield seeing a guy with the same sign, shooting him and then using a felt marker pen to cross out the words NOT DEAD YET and then writing I AM NOW.

      I have a weird imagination.

      I’m inspired by the strangest things.

        haha LOL
        We are both writers, Chris. We are “weird”. hehehe … 🙂

    • draculvanhelsing said,

      Yes, I guess one does have to be “weird” to be a writer. 🙂

      LOL !

      • Sherrie de Valeria said,

        Yeah! Isn’t that cool? hehehe … To be so abnormal is really something. One has to be so good at it just to become ONE! LOL

      Yes, I didn’t watch the Oscars last night but they showed a clip on the news of one of the guys who won Best Screenplay- he said when he was in school, he was depressed and thought of suicide because the other kids said he was “weird” and “different” .
      But he didn’t commit suicide and now look at him he said – what being “weird” and “different” got him- an Oscar for a screenplay he wrote.
      So he said “Be weird- be different” and you too could be standing here some day.
