I Think I Need to Stop Thinking

Oh me, oh my, oh mo….oh mo? Never mind, it seems I have run out of things to say today. I started out the day with plenty on my mind, but it seems I have just used my last thought. You see, I have been visiting other blogs today before writing on my own. I was looking for that spark, that hidden blog muse that is always hiding out there somewhere to inspire me, but alas the muse has remained hidden. Instead, I have found myself commenting on other people’s blogs. This is not new or bad or a complaint, but the comments have been quite long, almost post length in some cases, and it seems I have exhausted my supply of things to say.

Who knew there were a finite number of thoughts bouncing about in my head? I never imagined that my subconscious was rationing out my points of view so that they would last until my old age. Maybe that explains Alzheimer’s disease: maybe people just run out of thoughts. Maybe they just thought too much in their youth, or spent one too many hours daydreaming or something. What a scary thought that is….shit that means I just wasted one of my limited thoughts on this concept of limited thoughts. Oh the irony.

A comedian (I forget which one since I listen to so many comedians on a daily basis) once said that men go bald because each man is born with a certain amount of inches (on his head you pervs) and that once it is used up, it’s gone. If you choose to have long hair in your youth, you will be bald by 40. I had long hair in my youth and my Yamika landing pad is growing steadily so there might be something to that theory after all. I wonder if this theory goes for thoughts as well.

I think I need to go before I waste another thought and have to dip into tomorrow’s thoughts to cover it. Tomorrow is Friday and we all know how those go for me. I think I am going to need every thought I have. SHIT! I just wasted two more just in this paragraph!

Oh, my. Is this a Kanrei original?

I can't comment here as I may waste what little thoughts I have. Bye.

I never have any thoughts so I'll just blab away! First, I actually think metal and wooden statues don't feel stoned. I've done extensive interviews with them and I'm pretty certain. I'm not sure about that hair theory. I have hair down to my shoulders (it was the 70s) and still have it...not down to my shoulders though. But what is the thing about most homeless guys having their hair? Is it so greasy it's still stuck there? Yakima Landing Pad...good one! But should your theory be correct and we have a limited length of hair, then I've already looped mine back into my scalp in a giant loop de loop. Sort of a hair recycling process. Patent pending.

Sorry it took so long to get back to all of you, I went to the Rent's for dinner tonight. I am trying to make an effort to respond to everyone who makes the effort to comment. I have been bad, horribly bad at it and I owe you more.

Birdie,
Yup, a 100% Kanrei original. After accepting that I would actually get a bald spot I decided to have a sense of humor about it instead of covering it up. No Rogain in my future. Nope, just a big smile (I hope).

Golden,
Welcome to the Lemming House! I love seeing new people here. Actually, I just like to see people here. We don't get many round these parts.
I am so happy to know I am not the only one suffering from a shortage of thoughts. Keep them close for certain if you only have a few left. As I waste mine, I may be looking to buy some of yours so keep them fresh.

VE,
Wooden and Metal statues are notorious liars when it comes to substance abuse. Think of it like this- 2/3 of statues admit to using drugs and 1/3 are proven to be liars about it.
It would not surprise me in the least that your hair has looped around and started all over. I loved the part in Osmosis Jones where the hairs on the head were upset about losing their jobs, so the mayor of the body told them there would be plenty of work on the back and shoulders.

I ran out of thoughts years ago. Now I'm recycling them.

Yamika landing pad

I love that!

NBC's rerun campaign has always been one of my favorite slogans of all time and it works for recycled ideas:

If you haven't seen it then its new to you.
