This may surprise you, but I’m a thinker. Okay, maybe that statement was playing fast and loose with the word “thinker.” But I do often have several thoughts clanking around inside my head at any given time. The problem is that I’m very susceptible to losing a thought if another thought pops into my head. Or if a possum happens by.
That’s why I developed a habit of writing notes to myself. I used to send emails but I got freaked out by that one day when I checked my email and noticed that I had not only sent myself an email, but I had also replied to myself.
I also keep an ongoing To Do List on my computer. Except I call it “Today’s Goals” because that sounds much more positive and upbeat. I used to call it “Crap I Should Probably Do” but decided that was not very positive or upbeat.
On my “Today’s Goals” page, I also have several text boxes with random thoughts. One of them must be ideas for a blog post because this is what it says (verbatim, I am not making this up; in fact, I don’t think I could make this up):
lots of Jello/aspic
wine monkey gift wrap
what can I use glitter for
can we colorate the pasta
how to make hot dogs curl
how to make assless chaps
several variations on “tacky” something or other
Judging by the seemingly incoherent list, I would say it’s a list of google searches that have recently brought people to my blog. But, really, whose mind doesn’t jump from tacky glitter Jesus blankets to aspic on a regular basis?
