A blog for our amateur sitcom Parker

One or two notes

Jim pointed out that if we wanted to keep Parker anonymous, maybe we need a fictional first name for him. I suggest "Richard Parker" after the tiger in Yann Martel's "Life of Pi". This is not quite apt as (within the book) the tiger is named Richard parker due to a bureaucratic error[1].

The tiger has the name Richard Parker (outside the book) as a reference to a man involved in a shipwreck; there were four survivors in a lifeboat, but they ran out of food, and Richard Parker... well anyway, only three of them were rescued.

Also in my notebook I've written "Lara is bitten by a vampire hat."

Update: Good lord, some comment spam has turned up! How sad is that.

Update Update: Got rid of it and turned on the letter-recognition thingy so only real humans and highly evolved patter recognition AIs can post comments.

[1] It should, of course, be due to an accounting error to be a proper obscure reference.
