I am meant to be cleaning right now. In fact, I turned on my computer so I could put on 'cleaning soundtrack.' Obviously, that's not what I've done.
What I Have Done With My Computer, Thus Far: chatted to four different people, read several humour sites, and begun a blog post. What I Have Not Done (with or without computer): put on 'cleaning soundtrack;' any actual cleaning. (Cleaning soundtrack, in case you were wondering, is Christina Aguilera's 'Dirrty' on repeat, interspersed with Mary Poppins shouting, "The job's a game!")
Sigh. In other news, I wish I had a whiteboard. I've got ideas for a book/story/novella/Work of Literary Brilliance bouncing around in my bonce. Occasionally they whack into each other and a germ of cohesion sprouts in the fertile soil of my, um...neurons? but then the second it dares to poke its head out of the neuron soil it is choked by the weeds of insanity which seem to grow over most of my brain which is apparently a garden. *blink*
So I would like a whiteboard, to connect all of the germinating ideas in a fit of conceptual landscape gardening, with the aim of eventually cultivating a nice, structured, box hedge-y herbacious border of sanity and (more importantly) plot.
New theory about cleaning: Cleaners are Weiners. I am now cleaning, and I keep finding bills I'd forgotten about. I am also finding a lot of little scraps of paper with things written on them which were obviously at some point considered important enough to write down, but which now make no sense at all. This always happens. It drives me mad. Why did I write down things like 'Dog; Bevan,' 'We could be... Feces Dragon?' 'We've got five minutes, we'll never make it! I'm going to the toilet,' '"The Zeitgeist" - watch,' and 'ACCIDENTAL OCTOPUS?' Could one of these have been the seed from which grew The Greatest Novel of Our Generation? Well, I guess now we'll never know. (Although on reflection I think ACCIDENTAL OCTOPUS was probably a band name.)
I think my blog would benefit greatly from a quality control checker, similar to that YouTube Comment Moderator thingy that reads your comment back to you so you can decide whether or not you really want to say "LULZ! ths is ORSUM!!!11" (Are you sure you want to post "lull zizz *chk* thiz is or sum *chk chk chk* eleven"?)
Mine would say, "Uh, Ally, is this really interesting enough to share with the world?" And I would say What are you talking about of course it is, and hit-
