Blagust 9/31: And they were both not covered

This blog is part 9 of a theorised 31 that represent my attempts at partaking in Blaugust 2015. This week, we continue with Part 2 of The Beginning of the World, the first part of that epic work, the Up Goer God Book, as interpreted by our good friend PsephologyKid. If you missed out on part one, it is here. Without further ado, let's get on with it.
 1 In this way the place where God lives and the world were finished, and all the things in them.  
2 And on day seven God ended his work which He had made; and He rested on day seven from all his work which he had made.  
3 And God wished day seven well, and made it important: because that in it He had rested from all his work which God built and made.  
4 These are the children of the place where God lives and of the world when they were made, in the day that the god God made the world and the place where He lives,  
5 And every tree thing of the field before it was in the land, and every tree thing you can eat of the field before it grew: for the god God had not caused it to rain upon the land, and there was not a man to work the ground.  
6 But there went up a water smoke from the land, and watered the whole face of the ground.  
7 And the god God formed man of the spots of the ground, and breathed into his nose spaces the breath of life; and man became a living mind.  
8 And the god God put a tree place in the direction to the right of a picture of places in a place that sounds like saying "Eat an" with a blocked nose; and there He put the man that He had formed.  
9 And out of the ground made the god God to grow every tree that is nice to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the middle of the tree place, and the tree of knowing of good and bad.  
10 And a water way went out of "Eat an" to water the tree place; and from there it was parted, and became into four heads.  
11 The name of the first is "Piece on": that is it which surrounds the whole land of "Heavy laugh", where there is money rock;  
12 And the money rock of that land is good: there is tree blood you can see with your nose and the rock with straight lines.  
13 And the name of the second water way is "Give on": the same is it that surrounds the whole land of "Easy oh pay a".  
14 And the name of the third water way is "Hide kill": that is it which heads toward the right of "Ass ear ear". And water way four is "You free teeth".  
15 And the god God took the man, and put him into the tree place of "Eat an" to dress it and to keep it.  
16 And the god God told the man what to do, saying, Of every tree of the tree place you may eat for free:  
17 But of the tree of the knowing of good and bad, you will not eat of it: for in the day that you eat there of you are sure to die.  
18 And the god God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.  
19 And out of the ground the god God formed every angry animal of the field, and every flying animal of the air; and brought them to the man to see what he would call them: and what so ever the man called every living animal, that was the name there of.  
20 And the man gave names to all food animals, and to the flying animals of the air, and to every angry animal of the field; but for the man there was not found an help meet for him.
 21 And the god God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man , and he slept: and he took one of his side sticks, and closed up the soft body instead there of;  
22 And the side stick, which the god God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man.  
23 And the man said, This is now stick of my sticks, and soft body of my soft body: she will be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.  
24 For this reason a man will leave his father and his mother, and will stick to his wife: and they will be one body.  
25 And they were both not covered, the man and his wife, and did not blush.

And there you have it, part 2 of the Up-Goer God Book. I love the strangely satisfying thing that is this little project, but I notice that it seems to be getting a lot fewer hits and no comments when compared to the other stuff that I've been doing so far this Blaugust. Do you guys not find it as hilarious as I do, or feel that it's just so amazing that your comments could add to it, or just not go in for blog-commenting on the Sabbath...or is there something else going on here? I'd love to know, because Dan keeps pumping these things out, and if you don't want to read them it would be good to know, you could even suggest an alternative, so that I can find some other way to torture you on Sunday mornings.

It feels pretty weird, not having to work very hard to produce a post because I know that the PsephologyKid has done all the hard yards, so I've been spending my usual writing time working on a little something for later on... (yes, yes it is rapping, how did you know?). It feels also weird to be a week into Blaugust and still have at least ideas for the next few days, but it's the kind of weird that I can get used to.

If you're struggling for ideas, here's a couple of little prompts:

1) Have you ever done something that you're really proud of but other people hate? Or worse, don't notice or care about?
2) If you could fill your Blaugust with someone else's content (real or imagined) instead of your one, whose would you pick?
3) Have you ever started something big and never finished? Will you ever go back to it?

I still need a cool phrase to sign off my posts with. Ta-ta for now, Owl.

Sort of related to one of my translated songs I guess.
