walkin' in a winter wonderland
A "drunken, stupid thing" or an orgy? You be the judge.
For the last couple of days, I've been thinking about doing a 7 day computer fast. I was laying in bed last night thinking about it. I bought my laptop to work on my writing and I'm so focused on coming up with stuff for my blog that I've hardly written a thing. Now when I try to come up with ideas for my novel, I'm drawing a blank, whereas I used to have tons of ideas. Too many, in fact. So last night I was thinking, "I really should stop logging on cold turkey for seven days." Then I thought, "Hmm, a week is a long time, maybe I should start with five days or even three? Wait! I'll start with one day, then add on from there." Funny how the mind works. I haven't even started and I'm talking myself out of it. I was talking to my husband about it, and he said, "How did you fill your day before you got the computer?" I said, "I think I used to read a lot of those rectangle things with pages and words." He said, "You mean 'books'?" Yeah, those.
A Lehigh Valley (PA) triple A baseball team mascot was nicknamed "Porkchop" because well, he's a pig. Immediately Puerto Ricans bellyached because apparently "pork chop" used to be a racial slur years ago. I'm telling ya, cock-a-doodle-do, people----banned in all states!! Mark my words.
