Whenever I don’t post for a while, I start noticing things to write about. By the time I get back to posting, I’m so overwhelmed by all the things I think I could write about that I achieve nothing but vapor lock and can’t think of a damn thing when I sit down to write.
For a while I got away with it by taking advantage of all the Comment Spam I get, those wonderfully convoluted comments that seem to have been translated from English to Chinese and then back to English again … by way of Romania. But one cannot blog on Comment Spam alone.
There are, of course, always cute cat pictures, but I haven’t taken any new ones recently and it feels like cheating to recycle old pictures. Of course, given our feline horde, how would anyone know? Hah! I’ll consider this as a viable option.
I could gripe about the stress of waiting for responses on various projects out with editors, TV networks and production companies, but that gets old fast. We all know I’m playing the waiting game on about three different projects. I’ll wait until they get back to me and that’s all there is to it (insert one heartfelt whimper here).
Then there are the inevitable Muni stories, like the man who sat next to me the other night on the N-Judah and kept making these gross sucking noises with his mouth, like he was sucking in noodles and air at the same time. And me without my earplugs… ’cause I SO would have used them. Better to have little pink puffs sticking out of one’s ears than to listen to that.
And the list goes on.
But, like writing anything when I’ve taken a break for a while, the best thing to do is just jump in and muddle through, even if the end result is iffy. I offer you a cute cat picture as compensation!
