All Work and No Play...

I've been having trouble getting into the whole blogging thing again. I search my brain for ideas, and I come up with nothing. There is absolutely nothing there. I feel like




Is it weird that my son has taken to riding his big wheel in my 1970's carpeted hallways?




Does this happen to anyone else? I hope everything will be okay!

If your twin nieces from Britain suddenly show up to stay... um... then I suggest you pack your bags.

HAHAH!! I guess you just have to be worried if Jack Nicholson comes up to you and says "Gimme the bat!!" :)

Kirsten said...

@jenn-Good idea! I'm packing my bags now just in case!

@smithjennife-LOL! "Gimme the bat!" I'm still laughing!
"I'm not gonna hurt you, Wendy! I'm just gonna bashing your f*&^ing brains in!"

Have you cut back on your alcohol consumption? I find massive doses of it often lead to blog worthy posts.

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

I'm not seeing Nicholson, I'm seeing Austin Powers with fur. Lots of fur.

Kirsten said...

@da old man-That'll teach me to stop drinking!

@prefers-I'll go with that!

I think we need to start a collection fund for the updating of your decor. ;-)

Yes, alcohol does help. Unfortunately, the amount of alcohol consumed is directly related to the number of spelling and grammar errors that are actually caught prior to publishing a post.

It's like a scene from a 70s mobster movie. I think I saw this one. It was Scorcese, but I don't remember which one it was.

But in answer to your question, the short answer: No.

The longer answer: No, never. I mean, just look at my blog. ;)

Your hallway is the size of my house. Can I move into your hallway, I promise I'll just sleep in the corner.

Who cares that you don't have any ideas for a post - I'm all distracted and impressed by that slide show you got going on in your sidebar over there and that will keep me amused for a like a week of visits...

so relax and put down the axe...

Kirsten said...

@reforming-You don't like my orange/rust/brown nightmare carpeting?

@unfinished-It is an obscure film reference!

@cameron-as long as you don't snore!
That's a deal breaker for me.

@lee-Thanks for talking me down!

Father Muskrat said...

That is terrifying.

Chat Blanc said...

just be sure to tell us if you start partying with ghosts/imaginary people.

Eudea-Mamia said...

Hmmmm - red rum.

I'm suddenly in the mood for a hot toddy.

For not being inspired, you had me giggling!!

TheFLy said...

Im feeling the same way. But for me its actually that I have plenty of ideas its just that I dont have the energy to blog. Im thinking about throwing up my blogging hat for a while and closing shop for a bit until I get that itch again. What do you think? Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

Don't worry, I have writer's block about once a week and I think I am never going to write anything remotely interesting ever again. But then I do (at least I think I do...)

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Redrum, redrum, redrum. Awesome. Have a great day. :)

Lucy from Hoeno/jiveturkeys said...

I'm like Fly in that I've got TONS of ideas. I never run out. Most of mine suck, though. So, no help from 93% of them. I lack the gumption also. If you have some extra gumption, I'll trade you for some of my non-sucky ideas?...Nevermind. I have no idea how that would even work. I'm not even sure it's doable. It may require a doctor or something. Probably a bad idea.

Kirsten said...

@father muskrat-Tell me about it!

@chat blanc-But how do I know if they're imaginary!

@eudea-Thanks! redrum, right back atcha!

@the fly-Don't leave us!! You need to take off a week and regroup!!

@petra-Good! Maybe there is still hope for me.

@sandee-Thanks! You too!

@lucy-Good idea though!

unfinishedrambler said...

I feel so clueless. I definitely missed the reference. My wife would be proud...since she's always saying I missed the '80s. Oh, well.

King of New York Hacks said...

Its funny because my wife Wendy smashed me in the face with a bat as I rode my big wheel down the hallway. What a coincidence!! Now its time to type. LOL

Random Chick said...

RED RUM!!! AHHHHH!!!!!

Perhaps you need a Cosmo?

My word verification is: string

Melissa said...

Redrum, redrum...... Hereeeee's Johnny-- Hi honey, I'm home!! he-he!!

You know that movie is one of my all time favorite scary movies. That one and Salem's Lot.

Kirsten said...

@king-lol! That Wendy!! :)

@random-That sounds like a good idea!

@melissa-Mine too!

Heinous said...

Pick up an axe. Something will come to you.

Anna Lefler said...

It totally happens to me. I wish I had a big wheel to ride in your hallways, too, because I think that would help me.

A lot.

Hang in there...you'll be back in the saddle before you know it...
