It is Bad Attituesday, and my attitude is so bad I do not want to go back and see how long it has been since I made a post about I Can’t Write a Blog Post Today. Is it Writer’s Block? Is it Writer’s Blank? Is it Writer is Too Damn Lazy and Irritable? SAY IT AIN’T SO!!!! Whatever it is, my brain is not cooperating.
I was looking through my Media Library for the picture I have of The Brain from Planet Arous, but I found this one from Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte first and thought, “Rest in Peace, Cindy’s brain (was that a Freudian typo? I first put “piece” instead of “peace” and I meant to, because as I typed it I thought, “pie as in a piece of pie”). I am in the mood to see Hush.. hush again. I suggested it for our cinematic Sunday, but we decided to watch shorter movies instead, in order to fit more in (in fact, we watched two more after I made my blog post).
Perhaps the problem is that I had made up my mind to Write More. I have one of those perverse dispositions that as soon as I make up my mind to do something, I only want to do the exact opposite, or do nothing at all. As I walked into work, having almost a half hour before my shift began in which to write, I thought about a blog post I wanted to write about one of the movies we watched this weekend. My brain soon became bogged down, so I thought I would ease into it by working on a letter I had started to a friend. I got about a paragraph written, felt quite dry and dumb, so worked on an anacrostic puzzle I happened to have handy (what, computer, that’s not how you spell anacrostic? That’s a word, isn’t it? Damn!) (just googled it: anacrostic and acrostic are apparently the same thing, but Google seems to think anacrostic is also a word).
Where was I? Ah yes, brain dead and not making much of a post. And yet I am over 300 words. What does that tell you? It does not tell me much, but I think I’ll put in another picture and call it a day. I hope I have managed to amuse somebody.
There’s that damn brain! Happy Tuesday, everyone.
