It begins: THE CORRESPONDENCE-SCHOOL DETECTIVE THE HARD-BOILED EGG Walking close along the wall, to avoid the creaking floor boards, Philo Gubb, paper-hanger and student of the Rising Sun Detective Agency’s Correspondence School of Detecting, tiptoed to the door of the bedroom he shared with the mysterious Mr. Critz. In appearance Mr. Gubb was tall and gaunt, reminding one of a modern Don Quixote or a human flamingo; by nature Mr. Gubb was the gentlest and most simple-minded of men. Now, bending his long, angular body almost double, he placed his eye to a crack in the door panel and stared into the room. Within, just out of the limited area of Mr. Gubb’s vision, Roscoe Critz paused in his work and listened carefully. He heard the sharp whistle of Mr. Gubb’s breath as it cut against the sharp edge of the crack in the panel, and he knew he was being spied upon. He placed his chubby hands on his knees and smiled at the door, while a red flush of triumph spread over his face. And continues for 243 pages. I usually love this kind of rubbish, but I gave up after ten pages. First published in 1913. Ellis Parker Butler wrote a story called "Pigs is Pigs" (1905) which is a brilliant example of humorous magazine fiction.

(037/365) Welcome to my bedroom.
I spent so much time in the early hours of the morning in my bedroom the other night thinking there was a burglar downstairs, oh it is so scary. I decided that in order to stay safe I should stay in my room and listen to Jonas Brothers really quiet...loud enough to not hear what turned out to be the boiler and stairs creaking into place but not too loud that if someone came into my room I woulden't hear the door. I need to clean my bedroom. I hate my carpet.
