The First Thing That Comes To Mind

It has been a while since I have sat down and typed out an actual post. You know, the kind with actual words. I've had a Happy Birthday post, Happy Father's Day post, prom pictures, graduation pictures, the Tuesday Special Guest posts, but nothing LOL. OK, I will admit, originality (I looked up original in the Thesaurus and one of the synonyms was "rare-bird" haha).... But anyway, as for sitting down and writing, just not happening lately.

We all go through it. We sit here, stare at the computer screen and go blank.

I read somewhere that if I close my eyes and just let the thoughts go, the words will flow. Just type.

OK, I'll try that.

OK, not a great idea. Maybe I'll try it with my eyes open this time.

Hi. What's new? Nothing here. How are you? Been hot here. Yesterday was nice though.

OK, still not working. As in....YAWN.

OK, try again. First thing that comes to mind.

Cat. Hat.
In French chat chapeau,
In Spanish you're a gato in a sombrero.
In German you're a katze in a hut I also know,
You're a guanka in a bunkaquank in Eskimo!

Now if you will allow me sir,
But please don't think I'm pushin,
I think that I can tell you what you are!

You're a shapka in a shlapa!

I'm a shapka in a shlapa?

I'm a shapka in a shlapa.

I'm a shapka in a shlapa!
I'm a shapka in a shlapa I'm a shapka in a shlapa I'm a shapka in a shlapa



I'm A a Hat!

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope, which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."

Theodore Geisel aka "Dr. Seuss"

Have a great day!

Yes, you are a rare bird and, apparently, a Dr.Seuss in the making as well. I think that's how he wrote his books. He just wrote whatever came to his rare bird mind.

Actually, the cat idea in other languages would make a cute little article. Not that I'm pushin or anything, just sayin.

Rare Bird - a dodo bird! Wahahaha!

Just kidding. :-) That's what sisters are for.

I love Thing 1 and Thing 2... i have to... they live in my house! ;-)

Ramble on my friend. I liked the eyes closed entry! ;-)

Mocha with Linda said...

So I'll just start thinking of you as Thing 1. . . .

And now that song is going to be on my brain. Thanks a lot.

Edie said...

One of the things I love best about you is that you're a rare bird. :D

My mind has been a blank slate too. I wish I could write a post as witty as yours with this blank slate.

Closing your eyes and typing made me LOL.

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I mentioned you in my post today. Maybe it will give you some writing material. :)

Ted Geisel didn't have the easiest life, so his quote doesn't surprise me. We all need to find our own equivalent of looking through the telescope backward. And, until we do, we have you, rare-bird blogger!

RJ2 was reading The Cat in the Hat Comes Back tonight, and I hadn't shown her your blog yet. Lots of shapkas in shlapas in that one. (I'm half Russian, so that makes me laugh!)

You know, monkeys have been known to type great things--given enough time. And I've heard they are funny, too.

I do love Dr Suess.

Of course now I will be reciting Green Eggs and Ham for the rest of the day. Used to know the whole book off by heart!

Chatty Kelly said...

Hey, Sue J's duaghter CJ has a blog now, and I know she'd love to get a comment from THE MyADHD Me. So when you have time, head to Sue J's to link over to CJ's.


Greg C said...

Yes but could you write that in a box? Could you write it with a fox? And where are you heading? A big tree house?

On Purpose said...

You my friend help to enable to me to laugh at lifes realities...and thats just one reason I love ya! Have an excellent weekend!

Hey friend!! I'm catching up on your blog and I love looking through the wrong end of a telescope too! Why be normal indeed!
