and that's why I will never join facebook

The universe craves randomness, apparently. That must explain why I can only think in 10 5 seconds bursts of concentration/creativity today.

That article that I was going to bang off with no problems? Not happening. I have learned from hard-earned experience that it's best to cut your losses in those situations and leave it for a day.

So I'll pour a glass of wine instead and submit to that wave of random thinking that has been pulling at my pant leg all day. It is Friday after all, there have got to be at least five thoughts rattling around in my skull.

Bad Tempered Zombie's Top Five Random Brains Farts of the Day

1. I have become sort of addicted to blip.fm. I did not expect this.

2. the Resident Offspring is volunteering with the Folk Festival this year. Huzzah! We're gonna be folkie volunteer twins!

3. nothing kills a morphine buzz like your in-laws bursting into your hospital room with a plate of pork chops and potatoes.

4. now that we have managed to wrestle the reindeer out of the permafrost, I feel less like trailer trash.

5. Happy Birthday, Berni! I am so glad we are sisters; you are totally adorable.

~*~ Now lets all get ourselves some chocolate to practice up for the big day ~*~

I like your "posts that get written" label.

I just found a strand of Christmas lights that had frozen under some leaves. That made me feel good in April.

You could be my neighbour in the trailer park, Bubs. We could get one of those inflatable Santas that we leave lying in front of the double-wide all year.

I really have to try one of these semi-random postings... They must have a certain 'purging' appeal. :)

Glad you mentioned BLIP.fm... It certainly is addictive. Mind you it still seems like a bit of a work in progress. The number of times I have accidentally given props to someone playing Eddie Rabbit or Miley Cyrus is positively frightening. Still lots of fun nonetheless exorcizing one's musical demons on an international scale is kinda liberating.

I'll be watching for you on there Barb!

Have a wonderful Zombieaster!

I love running into songs that I never thought I would hear again in my life. As well as those I could listen to 100X a day.

Have a Poptastic Easter yourself!

I can join Blip because I can barely manage Facebook and Twitter. If anything you should join Twiiter, as you can subscribe to a lot of news feeds (music too) that give updates. This, I like.

The snow is melting here and everyone still has xmas decorations up, do don't feel bad. I was walking yesterday and saw a inflatable snow globe (still inflated).

Allison said...

*can't. I can't join Blip ;)

"3. nothing kills a morphine buzz like your in-laws bursting into your hospital room with a plate of pork chops and potatoes."

Uh, yeah, I'm feelin' that.

Blipfm is addictive, as is facebook and twitter. I've tried to limit myself to 3 blips per day Max. Of course weekends are a free for all!

your reindeer is free?...that's good...i cut the lawn today

John Mutford said...

Wrestling on the lawn with a fake reindeer actually sounds more like white trash than merely leaving it there in peace. But now that it's gone and the empty Bud cans are cleared away, I'm glad you feel back to normal ;)

Isn't it amazing how a semi-colon and a semi-bracket takes the edge off ?

;)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Just make sure you forward all the penis extension mail, Jen. I don't receive near enough of that.

Yes! Inflatable snow globe! I love seeing those things in summer especially, Al.
The way I see it blip is going to be my twitter, short and snappy, but with music. It works for me.

You've been there too, Volly? And I mean how often do we get a chance to float on a morphine buzz?

Weekends are a total free-for-all, Mel. Hey, it's only music, can't hurt anybody, right?

hahaha I won't have to cut the lawn for months still, Kelly! Have fun with that!

Empty Bud cans? I will have you know that we are strictly a Big Rock family, John. That makes us classy, mister.

Gifted Typist said...

Yup, if it doesn't come don't try to pull it like teeth.

Missing Norman.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I've learned that now, Gifted, thanks to many clever and experienced people coaching me on that.
Norman is in a better place now and will return in a few months.

"1. I have become sort of addicted to blip.fm. I did not expect this"

HA! Wait until I get you all addicted to this new wonder drug called crack.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Do they supply that on BLIP, JustA? Cause they haven't sent me my welcome parcel yet.

Dale said...

My condolences on losing that trailer trash feeling, it's to be cherished at all times (as long as it's not me).

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It was getting so bad that I thought I was going to have to move into Honeypot's basement, Dale. At least then we would be neighbours.
