The Mansionoid meteorite Showers(3)

New Horizons_Image Credit: Google ImagesCindy, the intrepid traveller and highly skilled, photographer was hitching a ride aboard NASA’s New Horizons probe, busy capturing extraordinary images of Pluto and beyond for NASA although she didn’t actually realise that this was the case, and was instead happily engrossed with preparing a series of exotic intergalactic blog posts for her WordPress blog!

She couldn’t help but notice that The Holler appeared to be accompanying her… a strange phenomenon she noted absently, smiling as she added a caption to her latest photo, but presumably nothing to be overly concerned about – after all NASA knew what they were doing…didn’t they?

She was a little surprised the next time she pointed the camera lens into the depths of intergalactic space to be confronted with the extraordinary sight of the Cameraoid meteorite shower and a very large black hole swirling towards her…great photography! She thought unfazed by the situation.

With the natural expertise of a born-photographer she aligned the complex photographic apparel of the New Horizon’s probe with the fast-approaching vortex and took a closer look at the tiny speck of starlight twinkling away cheerfully in the distant heart of it… Tom’s Mansion!! Cindy was delighted to find such a photographic gem availing her vision and further magnification proved the “starlight” to be the lights from the the Cameraoid meteorite shower glinting and sparkling off the bright new windows the Mansion had recently fitted for itself without Tom’s knowledge… and it was snowing! How wonderful! Cindy beamed to herself, admiring the architectural enhancements highlighted by glittering snow flakes against the backdrop of galactic space…it all looked rather warped however, she noted frowning slightly…must be something to do with the effects of the temporal shift occurring within the vortex New Horizons reported after completing a tentative probe into the subject. She should probably check out his blog page…he’d probably got a post up about that by now!

Tom most definitely had not posted anything on his blog page! In fact he wasn’t even thinking about it at that point, for a change. Instead he was busy fielding a particularly large and dangerous key that was burning it’s way towards the Mansion which itself seemed to be indulging in some serious shake rattle and roll techniques. He eyed up his reflection in the Mansion’s rather impressive new wiTom's Mansion took many forms!

A bone rattling shudder rumbled through the Mansion as it’s pace through the vortex – or at least Tom hoped it was travelling through…this would imply there was a way out…hopefully….eventually…. – increased rapidly surpassing the speed of light…the effects of which were…different!

Tom gurgled and somewhere in the part of his brain that was still vaguely rational and not, unlike the rest of him suddenly flattened and distorted like a lump of play-dough accidently trodden on and flattened into…. Curious shapes….warp speed he presumed giving up temporarily on the hope of recapturing normality again anytime soon. Oddly, and presumably as a consequence of having passed light speed and careered cheerfully onto into warp speed Tom’s eyeballs sprouted extraordinarily long stems and popped out of his currently flattened skull to wave around enthusiastically like two magnificent water lilies…there was no shortage of “interesting” things to feast the popped out of the head eyeballs on…..Tom just wasn’t sure whether his brain cells were at this moment working well enough to register what he was seeing….Quite possibly not he decided, taking note of what his inner physicist was working over time to explain to him.

In a concerted effort to prove his inner Physicist wrong the popping eyeballs sprouted a sudden growth burst – distorted reality his inner physicist whispered in his head reassuringly…not, and the view down the telescope that was a prime feature in the Mansion’s official Observatory presented itself to the flattened Tom in dramatic scenes of ….

Return to the Catacombs Be right back

(Disused Eurostar Terminal at London Waterloo Railway Station)

 

Having tunnelled into the catacombs back in August in the vain hope of sneaking a peep at the disused Eurostar station at London Waterloo, ever hopeful Wolfie returned in September….it wasn’t exactly successful lol Winking smile but possibly a slight improvement on the first attempt. No joy getting permission to tour it or sneaking in through the back door either but probably the best that can be hoped for given the current state of affairs on the global terrorist scale, pretty much guaranteeing Wolfie will be arrested instantly the moment she makes any official request to get inside!

London Waterloo StationLondon Waterloo Station2

London Waterloo is a big, busy railway station and perhaps as a consequence nobody seemed worried about a thrill-seeking Wolfie padding around sniffing hopefully around the decidedly inaccessible Eurostar bit of it doing her poor best to enjoy a little covert photo shooting!

They really didn't want to let me in the disused Eurostar Terminal!!Turns out this time it wasn’t quite so boarded up….the somewhat imposing all-consuming gates blocking the way in were seriously frustrating but where there’s a Wolfie will there’s a Wolfie way…of sorts….Smile

               

So near yet so far!! The Wolfie paw wouldn’t stretch very far but the trusty mobile phone camera proved a handy little chappie for doing what Wolfie’s paw on it’s own couldn’t….

Thought about sending it in on it’s own to go touring for me…it’s only small…nobody would notice a little bouncy mobile phone toddling around the disused Eurostar section on a private, unauthorised photo shoot on Wolfie’s behalf would they? Well…maybe not…

Just a litttle look inside? Pretty please Transport for London!!Just a litttle look inside? Pretty please Transport for London!!2

Not wishing to look too suspicious Wolfie decided to look away…at something else…

…..distract the racing mind from it’s various wicked ideas about gaining entry… best wander away and have a look outside perhaps…

It didn’t really work!  Thumbs down

Let me in! Let me in! Let me in!!!! _ Eurostar entrance

Wolfie just got braver and embarked on some covert..or not lol scouting and photo shooting whilst debating whether it was likely to attract the kind of attention from the station staff that might get me where I really wanted to be…

International Terminal sign hangs silent above the boarded off Eurostar Terminal waiting for it's visitors to return...Hints of what lies beyond and out of reach....the view through the way too high to see much, Eurostar Terminal window!

The annoyingly inaccessible Eurostar entrance!

That didn’t work either! Angel

Best go round the side and have a look outside… Thumbs up

Better still…go for a walk! Shake off the apocalyptic cravings! Have a think about what to do next…maybe there’d be a naughty entrance Wolfie hadn’t spotted so far…

To be continued…..
