Damn if you want ideas let me know, I'm so pissed I can't get to all the shit I want to Rant about.Meanwhile have yourself a nice cool drink, put your feet up, take a breath (warm one) and chill.This stuff will still be here waiting for you.LaterT
If all else fails there is always --youtube--:-)
Goddamned infuriating, isn't it!!!The housekeeping that is. Beer always helps me, then I forget about the to do list :-)
A cool drink sounds good but Youtube? I think more than anythoing I'm just sapped of energy - plus I quit smoking a month ago and I'm still feeling the effects. Grrrr.
I can't look at a toilet, I have pubic hair phobia! It's true, if I see a cleaning product on TV and a toilet I turn away! LOLAnyway, put down the toilet brush and relax, we're having the same heatwave, I think the whole country is!Paint a piece of furniture, that'll inspire you! :-)))
That toilet brush should only be used for smacking Republicans in such humidity, Leslie.Take it light, you deserve a little Me time even if it's glistening Me time (cause women glisten while us guys sweat like pigs).Nice weather here in Norcal, mid 80's
Writers bloc? Hell. I went ahead and killed a good piece I'd written about my encounter with a bunch of Fijians because the meme was too close to Beach Bum's latest at Carolina Parrothead. He told go ahead but I just couldn't do it. But if you run out of ideas again you could always write about what a good guy I am. That I need help with. Whenever I screw up around the house and my wife demands to know what the hell I was thinking I can't think of anything.
Headed back into the Sweltering South in a couple of days after my two month SoCal sojourn--and dreading it. I was hoping I'd start writing like Harper Lee or Eudora Welty in such weather. Truman Capote? No, huh. Drats.
Having grown up where the summers were hot and in spells very humid, and having spent 26 months on Guam, I know how oppressive that combination can be. A cool shower, tall, cold drink of your choice and a good air conditioner are your friends.Writer's block is a very personal affliction. I think it's usually helpful to turn your attention completely away from writing for a day or two if you possibly can. Don't think about or feel guilty. That might or might not help you, but I hope it will.
Damn Truth, you should have posted it. It wasn't any issue at all. Hell, I'm so bummed out right now I had to think about what I posted.As for writer's block, it almost as bad as a kidney stone.
Sue and Oso: Read that last line again. : ) I don't do well in hot weather at all, so no painting or cleaning for me.Truth: I left a comment telling Beach Bum that I had been thinking of doing something along those lines. Funny how we geniuses all think alike! I was going to call it "The Laughing Stock of the World." But he did such a great job I don't have to do it. Lordy, if you can't tell what you're thinking, I sure can't.Nance: I can see a Harper Lee there. Don't know about Welty - never read many of her works. My creative writing prof 1st husband didn't like her, which may have influenced me.S.W.: All good suggestions. I've been drinking so many cold beverages I'm been spending plenty of time away from the computer but I love blogging so much that I'm always thinking about it no matter where I am!Beach: That was a fabulous post. I'm not sure anything is as bad as a kidney stone - not even having babies.
Brilliant! I understand completely. Took the better part of the last few months off, myself, because my life was just too hectic to allow anything to percolate through the mud in my brain. See ya when you're back to your old self.
Blogging is our pornograpghy TNLib. We can try, but we can't stay away.
Paula: It won't last long. I think it's more the heat than anything. Did your author test - Kurt V.Truth: Sounds like it's an addiction to me.
Seriously cool pics here!!!
"Cool"? ; )
Only in America......do we buy hot dogs in packages of six and buns in packages of eight.
Octo - I have to think that one over. I don't eat dogs.
Octo-any chance of us pooling resources and starting a "dual dog" company and marketing hot dog two packs?
I want your heatwave. We are having a coldwave and I'm a summer person.
Leslie - a must see for you :-)http://www.toiletmuseum.com/sounds.html
Magpie: Not with this humidity - winter or summer.Boomer: Think I'll attach the sound to the end of my voice mail greeting. Thanks.
