The Week Where I Got Lazy

Hey guys, today marks the second day in a row I didn't write anything in advance. Though this time I come before you with excuses! I actually do almost have excuses. Yesterday I spent four hours with two of my nieces, my sister, and my dad as we were at the hopsital. Yes that's deliberately mis-spelled. Don't worry me and my ego are quite alright. It was one of my nieces. Poor thing fell off her space hopper and landed badly. At first she thought she had broken her wrist, then the doctors said it could have been her arm, then they finally x-rayed her, and then they said it was nothing. In one way I'm glad it was nothing, because she's one of my favourite nieces (she's one of the only ones that actually likes me) and also because that meant we could get the fudge out of there. By this point it was past the baby's bed time and she was bawling her eyes out because we couldn't find any juice for her. So anyway I got home late, tired, and hungry. Then proceeded to play Final Fantasy VIII for a few hours until about half one in the morning. I could force myself to read blogs but not write them. BTW I also recently completed FF VII, yay me! In more positive news I finally have some money, which may cheer me up as I may be able to salvage my old hard drive and all my old writings, which would of course be fantastic.

Damn this has lasted long enough to be a post as it is, but I'll do a round up anyway. It be habit. And expected. So anyway here's what went down last week. Boring week anyway, not much to see.

Tuesday was my appeal for guest posts as I'm currently in a dry spell writing wise. There's probably a lot to that dry spell, but I'm still accepting guest posts. Any and all.

Wednesday I waited until about midnight, commonly known as "the witching hour" but to me it's "the creative hour"...maybe my creativity is powered by witchcraft? O_O Nah I wrote that just now, my creativity is fuelled by tiredness. Though maybe that's just when my witch powers are at their highest...ANYWAY the point of the post was it was as Bart put it "three paragraphs of me writing about not having anything to write about."

Thursday was the latest in my series of Ramblingcasts (thanks again to JDC for that name. If it was him that suggested it, I have a crappy memory), this time it was about the relationship from four years ago. You remember the one, the one I said I'd never talk about. I got tired of not talking about it. Thank you guys for the awesome comments, seriously. I <4 you. That's one more than <3.

Friday was the first guest post so far. This one by Dirtycowgirl about how she see's her blog. Plus some ideas she has for Blog laws. This was something from her archives she thought people might never see, and really I'll take that too guys. I have a plan for a lookback myself, but this isn't the time, so I can't really do it just yet.

Saturday I posted the latest in my series of poems. Don't worry folks if I do go back to putting Immortal Space up on Saturday's I'll still post poetry too if I end up writing it. This was called Stream Of Consciousness, as for once I actually had a title. The point of it, I'm not quite sure. I started writing and just kept on going until my brain said stop. There are really like three poems in there, but it actually ends on a positive note!

Sunday I posted the song Nothing On My Back, by Sum 41. Even though it's Sum 41, who are a lot more deep and awesome than anyone gives them credit for, it is a situation I find myself in actually. It's why I posted it, the lyrics hit me just that deep.

So there you have it, another craptacular week here, fuelled by my lack of creativity. At least this week it's mostly guest posts. I'm hoping my brain can turn itself back on but I doubt it. I'm still in crappy situations.

  2. Exercise and caffeine. That's when creativity shows up. Works for me.

    1. Caffeine doesn't work for me and when I'm exercising I'm trying not to think and just keep going. If I was on a walk though I'd probably think of something.

  3. Aw, don't be so hard on yourself by saying that your blogging week was "craptacular" (I like to say "craptastic" in real life). We tend to be our own worst critics as it is.

    If you seek inspiration, some ways of getting ideas out involve going out for walks and taking a shower. Even the most mundane things starts my idea process. :P

    1. I don't think anyone actually does judge me as harshly as I judge myself. I get a few ideas when I'm doing mundane things. I want to say epiphany toilet here.

  4. Sorry to hear about your niece. Hope she gets better soon. Same for the inspiration aspect, I hope it comes back soon mate.

    1. She's fine, just a sprain I guess. We were there so long it fixed itself it seemed.

  5. I feel bad for your niece, but I also want to replay FF VII and FF VIII now. What a conflicting feeling, right?

    (I hope she feels better, and I hope you get your inspiration back soon)

    1. It's not that conflicting. While I was at the hospital I found myself thinking "I wish I was playing FFVIII right about now." and I'm her uncle. You're good.

  6. Kids are good at bouncing and surviving falls while all their bones haven't melded together yet...good to hear she's alright...

    1. I think this one has developed quite the knack for hurting herself. She's very hyperactive.

  7. Glad to here she is alright, I remember falling like that all the time when I was younger haha.

  8. I am glad your niece is ok. Sounds like my doctors. They are always assuring me there is nothing wrong. I am sure I must have Attention Deficit Disorder or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or something. They are just not trying hard enough.

    1. Well we're pretty sure she might at least have ADHD. Thing never stops moving.

  9. There are going to be weeks where "life happens." I have been struggling throwing posts together because of busy weeks, but ideally I should have several posts "in reserve," so that when something happens, I can just hit the post button and not stress out about it. It think, all things considering, you have been doing grand!

    As another resort, post a picture of a cat. That seems to never fail...

    1. I think I've posted too many pictures of cats as it is. I mean, you can never have enough cats, but not everyone loves them as much as I do. I kept too many posts in reserve, it's one of the reasons my brain died.

  10. Sunday- Motivation such an aggravation! Haha I was actually listening to them this morning, they never go out of date

    1. I can't get that song out of my head now, but it's a good one.

    1. Well the blog survived but in real life it was a shit week.

  12. I hope she feels better. I think I know what she feels like, it's happened to me too. When I was like nine, I fell on my wrist and thought it was broken but the X-ray showed nothing. It still aches sometimes, though. Also, awesome that you've finished FFVII! I've gotten about halfway through twice, but I kept losing my safegame. However, I've bought the game from Playstation Network, so now I have it on my PSP. Best. Decision. Ever. :'DD. I've never played FFVIII, although I desperately want to.

    2. Well when I was like, 14, I fell on my wrist and it was broken. She's doing okay. I command you to play VIII as well! you have to play it when you finish playing VII which you'll play while watching Doctor Who. PS Well done on being a grammar Nazi.

    1. There can be only one! But I've broken my wrist so maybe it's not me.

  15. Still feeling the writer's block? Hm, I think you should go on an adventure. Take random buses around your area and get off at whatever stop you feel like.

    Now tell us about your trip home and hopefully something interesting will have happened.

    1. It's not likely to have happened around here, but I'm not good with public transport, let alone getting off at a random stop on a random bus.

  16. Caffeine all the way for me!

    adorei aqui.
    Beijos

  18. Hope your niece gets better!

  19. I'm glad to hear that she was OK.

    I didn't realize until reading the comments that one could buy FFVIII for the PSP. Sony should really put "Play Final Fantasy VIII Wherever You Go" on their ads.

  20. Sounds like my week, every week. :/
