Evolution Of A Blog Post...

I'm sorry about the lack of posts today. I was in a bit of a mental rut and didn't have anything worthwhile to share. As you can see, it's the end of the day and I'm still drawing a blank. I thought I'd spend some time talking about how one of my blog posts go from my brain to your screen:
  1. Wake up
  2. Take a dump. While sitting on toilet, consider the myriad of blog possibilities for the day.
  3. Wipe up.
  4. Drive to work. In the car, decide whether it will be a childhood memory post, a pop culture post, a rant, a post that recommends something, or potpourri.
  5. Get to work and comb through my daily blogs to see what people are talking about in order to avoid repetition. For example, I would've probably posted something about the Suri Cruise pics, but I noticed a few people already had. I also have a lingering guilt due to the fact I once thought Katie Holmes was super-cute. What the fuck was I thinking!?
  6. Post a quick, hopefully relevant entry about something mildly amusing, yet ultimately inconsequential.
  7. Spend the remainder of the day lamenting the fact that my morning post was stupid.
  8. After the workday is done, really try to crank out a thoughtful post, but end up with something that is equally lame.
  9. Drive home thinking of a million better ideas for hilarious shit I should've done.
  10. Forget all aforementioned ideas before falling asleep.
  11. Go to Step 1.

God, I've had the same problem today. In fact I wrote a really lame post and decided to let it die in the cue. Must be something amiss in the collective unconcious.

Don't feel bad for thinking Katie Holmes was cute. She was. She just got sucked into the blackhole of lameness. I still believe someday she will find her way back.

And... your day sounds quite similar to mine.

Katie was totally cute in Pieces of April, dude.

I know that's the movie you're thinking of.
