More Writers Block Business

Continuing with the theme of writer's block, we have a press conference today being  held within my brain.  Let's check in with the proceedings:

Reporter:  Why have there been so few inspiring blog posts of late?
The Ju:  Garsh.  I don't know.

Reporter:  Can't you come up SOMETHING?
The Ju:  No.  Everything I come up with, I've already done.  Shart story?  Check.  Old boyfriend tales?  Check.  Numerous Food postings?  Check.  Pictures of dog?  Check.

Reporter:  Surely, there's a subject you can write about?
The Ju:  Well, there are many things I want to write about, but I need to get the pictures for them, and then organize my thoughts.  They are about "big" moments, and those deserve time and thought.  And, I can't seem to find an intelligent or original thought in this head.

Reporter:  Has anyone made suggestions to you on what to write?
The Ju:  Oh yes.  Steven is quite helpful.  He's suggested everything from a tour of Charleston, to my new found love of soccer.  Great suggestions, but I respond the same to all of them:  A shrug of the shoulder, and, an "Eh."

Reporter:  Isn't anything inspiring you of late?
The Ju:  Well, I did see some very teeny tiny baby ducks on my way to work the other day.  I should have stopped to take a picture, it would have really made the post so much better.  But, I didn't.  And, now that moment is gone.  I had some tasty sushi Thursday, and that was inspirational, but seriously, would anyone want to read an entire post about my YumYum Platter?

Reporter:  Have you perused other blogs to get ideas?
The Ju:  Oh yes!  I do this every day.  I usually end up on blogs with small kids, Mormon women, or ones in Japanese, Chinese or some other ese I don't speak.  I don't really have a whole lot in common with those, so I'm not getting many ideas I can borrow.

Reporter:  So, do you have a plan of attack, or are you just going to sit there and do nothing?
The Ju:  Well, I'm out with friends tonight, and I'm guessing something will occur that I could post on.  And, tomorrow is the biggest Oyster Roast in the Southeast, so I feel like there are things upcoming that could turn the creative juices back on again. 

Reporter:  Before we close this press conference, the readers want to know, what is the latest on Bailey?
The Ju:  Well, this morning he pooped on our bathroom floor.  We've had to install a childproof lock on the cabinet for the trash can, and he's starting to drive us bonkers.  In other words, all is status quo.

Reporter:  Thank you for your time, and good luck with that whole Writer's Block thing.
The Ju:  Thank you Reporter. And, thanks to my followers who are hanging in there with me.

You are SO clever!

Does your cat need a therapist? What would THAT session be like?

Enjoy the Oyster Roast - pictures, please.

Oh, poor pooping previous dog was a wee bit neurotic--not that I'm saying Bailey is!--so I do understand about pets that try one's patience! We don't care what you blog about, you're always funny and clever!

word: ocatines

I played the ocatines in the school band--the hurdy-gurdy was already taken.
