One thing that pisses me off is when I have a load of ideas to write about [about which to write?] and than when I fire up the old laptop the head goes as blank as the screen in front of me.
At times like this I might have a poke around the old feed reader, or whatever you call it to see if anyone else has something to say.
If they don’t, there is always my own links page to see what everyone else is saying. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but if you go into the links page and wait a while, most of the links will tell you when and what they have written. Unfortunately the ‘when’ bit mainly shows figures in the hundreds of days, but I suppose that’s a good way of catching up on the news of a year or so ago?
There are days, such as today, when no one seems to be doing much.
The EU is being suspiciously quiet, which generally means they up to even less good than usual, if that’s possible.
Our gubmint are on holidays. Nothing new there.
The neighbours are being very quiet too. [I think they may all have moved away?]
Talk down the pub is fairly nondescript too – mainly laughing at the Brits getting snowed under while we continue to have reasonably springy weather, or taking bets on who Mary the Hairdresser’s impending baby’s father is. [I disavow all knowledge, by the way].
It’s at times like this that I decide that it’s better to write nothing than to write some idle rubbish.
So instead, I think I’ll bang an old cassette into the side of the laptop and play a bit of my favourite music, and maybe have a doze.
