I’ve had a raging case of ADHD this past week, which I think I’ve developed over the years. It’s probably just lack of discipline and true inspiration. I still don’t really have any inspiration, at least not in the arena of this blog, but I’ll keep writing until something semi entry-like forms. That’s really the only way to get over this impediment.
All of my inspiring thoughts are going toward things I’m writing off this computer screen. (I could tell you about it, but I’d have to kill you.) It’s not like I’m really steamrolling that project either, but I do have a constant flow of ideas about it, whereas I pull up Blogger and stare at an empty text box for 30 minutes before frolicking off with my Pat Conroy book.
I’ve also been passed the immense task of designing the family Christmas card, and while I know that mi padre wouldn’t have asked me to do it if he hated my design work, I feel the pressure. Like David Bowie/Freddie Mercury pressure.
In addition to the immense pressures of an unemployed writer, I had to handle the news that NBC is taking “Community” out of their midseason lineup. I plotted a massive riot in the streets to prevent its cancellation. I prepared myself for war to the sounds of Donald Glover’s “Heartbeat.” I was ready to go down swinging and probably crying. The ugly kind of crying with mascara streaming down my face, you know? I still will if NBC reneges on their promise of keeping the comedy around, albeit in a really weird limbo.
So yeah, man. That’s what I’ve been doing. I guess you could say I’m gonna‘ing without a list, which is really the whole point of this project: to do stuff without having to remind myself that real people do real things.
I’m currently cleaning the house and laundering (clothes, not money) as I wait for my darling man to come home and my sister to come down off that mountain I miss so much. We’ll all be off tomorrow on Thanksgiving adventures, so I probably won’t write again until our return on Sunday… unless I get really champagne drunk on Thanksgiving Day.
I bid you all a Happy ‘It’s Okay to Get Fat Today’ Day! See you 5+ pounds from now.
