Review of a Twisted Mind, A Saturday Centus

Jenny Matlock

The Saturday Centus challenges us to write a piece within 100 words, based on a prompt. I encourage you to jump aboard. Just click on the graphic above. It's great practice, and I've met wonderful peers this way. Plus, Jenny's our favorite teacher.

This week, our 50th, we are asked to review any of last week's posts. I'm typing quickly to post this before all the other harsh critics beat me to it. It's a matter of pride! So, here's a review of my last post, which is here. My sci-fi spoof series begins here.

Review of a Twisted Mind

What the *bleep* was that? Writer (if you can call her that. I know I can't.) Robyn Alana Engel puts Spock and the sci-fi genre to shame. Her use of sexual innuendos throughout this entire series not only violates Ms. Matlock's "no risque writing" rule, but presents an outrageous affront to the sci-fi world. "Stick that tiny thing in already," Engel writes, with little Natashialovarita encouraging young Spock to more confidently explore new terrain. Thanks a lot,  Engel! We neither needed nor wanted an image of an emasculated Spock. Clearly, girlfriend, you have some pent-up sexual frustrations. I suggest you get professional help and other things you obviously need. But good lord, give Spock some hard earned relief. [By the way, James Earl Jones' narration was an acceptable touch. Astro Boy's performance was stellar, and Dora got lost in the role. Thus, there are a few redeeming qualities to Engel's work. Still, I recommend you stay lightyears from this twisted mind.]


  1. Thank God I'm not the only one to do a self-review this week!

  2. Robyn, you're my idol! I hope everyone knows how to get here, though, because your link is wrong.

  3. Judie, we'll just pretend nobody noticed I wrote "Census" vs "Centus," and thus linked this incorrectly. I think I changed in just in time to preserve my dignity. Wouldn't you say? Thanks, friend. xo

    Siv, thank you. Nice to meet you! ;-0

    Ms.A., glad to make you LOL. xo

    Jaq, twisted minds think alike. (-;

    OT, so glad, so glad. xo

  4. PS I further herein preserve my dignity by clarifying that I meant "changed it" not "in." Phew. So many close calls these days! xo

  5. Brave move Robyn, taking on your own writing, especially critical that turned into comical. Clever, funny and entertaining review !!!

  6. You crack me up as well. Eat some chocolate and drink a glass of wine. You'll be fine girlfriend! :)~Ames
    P.S. When I went to click on your link it said page not found. You should fix that sweetie!~Ames

  7. Well Robyn, you were a little harsh on poor Robyn, ween't you? LOL! After all the girl just hasn't been the same since leaving the Bay Area and landing in Paradise. I think it's the thin air at the higher elevation there.

    Loved this, you nut! What a hilarious self-review! Are you this funny for all your self-exams? Curious.

  8. Hey, I thought that this was your funniest post of the week. You could definitely give Alex C. a run for his money. Well, maybe not, but you could help him add comedy into his books.

  9. Give Spock some hard earned relief? Heh, methinks the reviewer doth protest too much! I never realised it was part of Spock's compensation. I suppose it must be a benefit.

  10. You have a wondeful blog. I can see it is going to take me some time to get my feet wet here so I need to do some serious snooping. First I need some sleep and then coffee :)

  11. were would we be without this twisted mind?....don't you know harsh critiques are the signs of an interesting author. i shudder at my turn, can i possibly get sick week off?

  12. Gosh, just when I think you can't possibly get any wackier! LOL!!! I LOVE it! You are as funny as the rain is wet....and believe me, it's wet as a monsoon here today.

  13. Thank you all. I wouldn't enjoy my weirdness if you didn't. Nah, I still would but not nearly as much.

    Tom, the breast self-exam is even more twisted. I'll refrain from posting that one. A gal's gotta have some standards. So they say.

    xo Robyn

  14. Such fun! No-one else would have done a review like that! Brilliant!

  15. Pass the box of chocolate's Robyn...I am ready for some!

    Love ya! Have a great weekend!


  16. oh you did such a brilliant self review .. wonderful!!!

  17. I'd admire you for not letting yourself off easy, but the truth is I just think you're jealous of your talent.

  18. Tatty, was it that obvious? Very cute. I followed you based solely on that comment. Then, I got jealous of myself and tried to follow again. It didn't take. xo

    Jo, thanks so much. ;0)

    Lisa, we're way overdue for a chocolate binge. Love ya too. xo

    Nancy, I know. So sorry. [-:

    JB, I'm glad you liked it. Thank you. xo

  19. Lol. Oh Robyn, you always crack me up. :)

  20. Dangerous and hilarious territory here!

  21. Very funny Robyn!

    I'm a little behind and have therefore combined three SC-posts into one!

    Best wishes,
    Anna's SC-48-49-50

  22. WAIT!!!! There was sexual innuendo in this writing?



    Oh my gosh......

    I was raised in a little town in Ohio...I didn't know suh things existed!



    You not only rose to this challenge, my dear, you totally blinded me by shining so brightly in it.

    Love your writing.

    Thanks for the laugh...and for participating.

    And I hope your Easter is sweet!

  23. Aw, thanks, teacher! I'm so glad you approve.

    Thanks, friends.
