Things I Do When I Can't Think of a Post

*Cruise other blogs looking for ideas to poach. Damn, nothing so far. *Spin my chair around in circles while staring at the ceiling. Nope, nothing yet. *Repeatedly check email just for something to do. *Start cruising other blogs again. Sh**, this is getting sad. *Flip through all the TV channels looking for old sci-fi movies. Only find old re-runs of "The Cosby Show." *Stare at the computer screen and hope for divine intervention. *Sigh* God doesn't care about blogs.... *Debate looking for a video on YouTube. Nah, too many of those lately. Maybe if I find a funny one..... No... *Drink some wine and hope the alcohol haze will make something sound interesting. End up sleepy and half drunk. *Debate cruising blogs again but give it up as a lost cause. *Paint toenails. It has nothing to do with the blog, but now my toenails look pretty. *Compose a pointless list and hope it passes as an actual post. Yeah.... *Hope God decides to care about blogs in time to give me an idea before the end of the weekend.

How about food in sci-fi? Has this been discussed before?

I think painted toenails are a woefully underrepresented topic in the blogging community. Bravo for bringing this mysterious topic to light.

P.S. Thanks for the job advice! I'm 90% certain I'm going to make a try of it, but chances are I'll be getting a side job and relying on an internship to get my foot in the door. Fortunately, my brother might be able to help out with some contacts too.

(By the way, which tv show did you write for?)

Gawd, I'm almost embarrassed to admit it. I got a job at one of the earlier reality TV shows called Real-TV. I started out as an associate producer (doing interviews) and over time got to write the voice over for some of the segments. Cheesy as hell.

SQT said...

Peter, surprisingly, that has come up before.

I should have painted my toes instead of blogging. I put up porn for women since I couldn't think of anything good to write. lets say I was distracted by the photos

Katie said...

I always check my e-mail hoping something will pop up there. Not having any luck so far...

Painting toenails is an option I don't usually go for.

I put on something inappropriate and go out and public. Usually, I can find something to post about.

SQT said...

Now why didn't I think of that?

Crunchy Carpets said...

LOL...I have been waiting all week for something remotely interesting to happen so I would have something good to write about.

It's like you read my mind. Or is there a camera hidden here somewhere? If you paint each toenail an other colour, you pass more time...damn I shouldn't have given that away...

This, too, shall pass.
