I'm Fucked...

I'm really in deep doo-doo.

Here you are, expecting a humorous pick-me-up to start your day, and you come here to find...

Nothing.

I'm sorry.

My normal routine is to generate a few ideas for possible posts on my way into work each day. Typically there's no problem. There's usually something that pops into my head or else some bonehead politician has said something asinine the day before. While I'm sure there was something stupid said yesterday, I wasn't paying good attention. I'm preoccupied with making sure everything's in order before I leave and tending to a printer malfunction at a most inopportune time.

So now I'm stuck. I'm looking around my office trying to create comedy from nothing. Hmm, a Sharpie. Is there anything funny about that? No. Here's a feet & inches calculator. Nothing funny there. How about the latest copy of the Michigan Building Code. Absolutely not. Arrggh!

I'll understand if you never visit my blog again...

Sharpie's are funny...talk about bathroom stall talk (or is that only in the women's room?).

I'm going to start carrying one in my purse so that I can respond to some of it.

Last week I saw one that said "Don't forget to wipe"...I thought that was very helpful as my memory isn't in tip top order all the time...

I don't think anyone is going to stop reading your blog just because you don't feel like you're funny today. Maybe if it happens again, though.

Actually, your story about not having an idea was plenty amusing for me. And it sounds like you're suffering from what my boss calls "Departure Anxiety."

Man, Chris... you're leaving AND you're not funny???

What the hell?

I want my money back.

Maybe by leaving you'll get rid of that writer's block. I hope you find lots of inspiration while you are gone.

Erik-
Thanks for that link. Glenn Beck is such an asshole. "Some of my best friends are Muslims".

Is CNN the new Fox News?

Chris said...

Erik- I saw that, too. What a schmuck! He can try and couch it in all kinds qualifiers, but the point was made - he's a biggot.
