Fizzle In The Drizzle Series - A Prelude

For those who have been following my series, Good News. I shall be back with a new one this week. As you know, I wrote about my crash-and-burns in my Lorbert Series and obviously the idea of writing about the crash-and-burns at the other end came up naturally. I have had this idea for the longest time already but hesitated as it would mean painting a less-than-flattering picture of the other party. Something that I am not used to but still I believe an even-up of the score is in order, lest people start portraying me as the perpetual victim here.

I can frankly say that I am no Saint and I deserved just as many "f*cking bastard" labels as I have "poor guy" ones.

You know, writing about my tragedies is easy as I have learned to laugh at myself. However, I am not sure if the other party share the same candidness when I write about them.

Problem is, writing about somebody else's tragedy is akin to laughing AT the person which I am a bit uncomfortable.

Should I proceed or should I just scrap this Series entirely? A lot of you (you know who you are!) have been bugging me to do this Series (you all damn kaypoh leh!) and I've decided to go ahead but not without this prelude.

This prelude serves as a "Last Chance" station to stop me. If for any reason (that is valid), I should not go ahead with this Series, speak now before I release my Pilot episode at midnight Monday, 21 November 2005 (GMT +8).

EDIT: The Series was originally slated to run from 20 to 25 Nov 2005 (inclusive of this prelude). However, an email from Adrian Lee, later on the morning of 21 Nov 2005, reminded me of his RunForFunds Day on 04 Dec 2005. I want to help spread the word about this project which I personally felt was a very worthy and meaningful cause. Putting it up after my Series will not do it justice for it would be cutting to close to the Marathon Day.

Ya lor memories akin to yourself mah, so not exactly laughing (men are v.good at keng-ing). Anyway is your past experience so hard to put a balance between saving some grace for the other party and bringing out the most of of it? But of course a v.v.v.large part of me wants to listen/read stories ah. I like your series muahaha.
