You’d think

January 3, 2011

You’d think that at some point in a person’s day they’d find something to talk about wouldn’t you?

Figure you sleep for eight hours, that leaves 16 hours for something ‘talkworthy’ to happen. Sixteen hours is a long time.

Today it’s apparently not long enough because I couldn’t think of anything at all today to talk about or rant about or grumble about here. I think I made matters worse because I have this consecutive days thing in my mind and once I started thinking about that early this afternoon it pretty much occupied my mind. Then the pressure rose and one thing led to another thing and here I am with nothing to talk about.

The consecutive days thing goes back to November 1st when I participated in NaBloPoMo, the National Blog Posting Month. Rather than write a 50,000 word novel in a month like the NaNoWriMo folks were doing, the NaBlo’ers simply had to blog every day for the month. I did it and I felt good about it (see the badge over there to the right of the screen) and when November ended I just kept on blogging and before I knew it, December was over and I hadn’t missed a day. Now it’s January and I seem to be more focused than ever on posting something every day and to be honest, there really isn’t always something to blog about!

But you’re from Minnesota and Brett Favre finally retired and the Vikings named their new head coach why can’t you blog about that? Probably because I don’t like Brett Favre and I don’t care about football.

Okay, but then what about… how about that… uh…

Yeah, uh…

Maybe it’s just one of those days and my biorhythm is off or something. 

Here’s something I don’t understand: why do women wear make up? I’m not saying women shouldn’t wear make up, but I don’t understand it. We all have imperfections and I don’t think anyone should ever have to feel they have to cover up those imperfections for any reason.

I was happy to read the 2011 list of banned words. Never a fan of the TV show LOST, I’m more than happy to see “Back story” banned and I can (almost) dance with joy to see “I’m just sayin’ ” on the list because I really hate that expression. Hate like in fingernails on a chalkboard hate!

    Mr. Fishman, There is nothing to write about today, it’s January 3rd, everything is over. Everyone is regreting how much they ate over the Holidays, and how much they drank on New Year’s Eve. We will all be in a hangover state until February. Then it will time to promise to write 28 (only!) days of consecutive posts. I’m just saying Dude.

      Mo, I like the way you think! (Even if you did used banned words!)

    It’s so refreshing to read your blog. I mean, among so many uninteresting people saying supoosed interesting things.

    I don’t care about football either. I don’t understand why do women wear make up either. I was never a fan of the TV show LOST either. But, ah, I use google as a verb. Bad I know, but…

      Thank you, Rubia. You’re very kind even if you do use google as a verb 😉
