Narration by Jacques Coustea
Several time zones and at least one continent away, our favorite would-be writer receives an email from Lady Fury.
Reading it while eating lunch at her desk, CeeLee paused. She wondered aloud about what being jolly had to do with being a lobster.
“The Whut and the whut?”
3 hours later, still at her desk and still in a land far from Lady Fury’s home, CeeLee the So-NOT-A-Spammer was looking through Urban Dictionary. She was pondering the definitions of Jolly and Lobster.
She wondered what the joining of the two words might mean to all of mankind…
“I wonder what this might mean, if Jolly and Lobster were to join forces?”
Was this the intended definition?
When an outcome of a competition is determined by an unexpected crustacean which ultimately shifts the advantage to the victor over a seemingly more qualified competitor.
Jolly (as in just plain-jolly):
To be scared by people several years younger than you.???
She was confused...
The only thoughts to register within her tired brain were odd ones.
“I’m so jolly right now, I’m gonna pop. Lady Fury whacked me with this here Jolly Lobster Award dohickey and I know I’ll choose poorly. I bet I’ll get the only one without the rubber bands around its claws to clamp down on my pinkie and I’ll cry.”
She sighed and made her decision.
“Yeah…I’m doing it CeeLee-style. Hit it!”
The Jolly Lobster Award
For bloggers who enter fully into the fun of blogging.
(Oh, so that’s what it means!)
Many thank you’s go to the lovely Milady Fury from Furious Unravelings blog for the nomination. She’s really not furious or anything. Quite the cool gal when you get to know her. She’s someone I’m honored to call a friend. She told me to say that. And I did because her temper is-heh. How did I ever get off topic? Because that never happens to me.
Fun lobster fact:
The largest lobster recorded was caught off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, and weighed 44.4 lbs (20.14 kg); it was between 3 and 4 ft (0.9 to 1.2 m) long. Scientists think it was at least 100 years old.

1 Have you ever written a book involving sea scenes?
(That is sea. Do please make sure there are no typos here). If not why not and do you intend to?
No I haven’t, yet. I just haven’t gotten around to writing a sea scene. If I did, it would go in the book titled,
So You Got Shipwrecked Now What: 101 Ways To Escape An Island.
2 What is your current WIP?
Currently? This blog. Much needs doing and time isn’t my bestie. And well, yes, I’m still trying to get the query/synopsis done on the B-17 Bomber story. I think I need a virtual assistant.
3 Do you have a favorite sea film? And why?
The original version of Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea. I love the thrill that comes from thinking about battling undersea creatures the size of small office buildings.
4 A favorite fish recipe to share?
Beer Battered fish and chips. But I don’t make it, Long John Silver’s does. We’ve found it to be infinitely safer for everyone involved, if I stay away from appliances that involve cooking.
5 Your favourite sea going book?
See the above. Loved Jules Verne.
6 Can you share a fav sea-side memory?
The first time I went crabbing in South Carolina with chicken necks and the crab liked my finger much more than the chicken neck. I think I shattered glass. Or my discovering sand fleas. That was also a loud moment. 😉
7 Most memorable sea-going journey?
None to speak of-yet. It’s on my Bucket List. Located right after getting on a plane and before I publish my first book.
