Some thoughts of late that I been havin'

Ya know, I am not sure if it is 'cause I can't sit here and chain smoke while things come to my mind or just 'cause I finally figured out I am an ignorant dufus who should have been chained up in someone's basement a long time ago ... 'cause for some reason I am havin' a really hard time findin' time just to stare at a computer screen for most of the day. 'Course, yesterday, it was cold as [I really want to say "Hell" but it ain't cold there] Hillary Clinton's heart around here so findin' a warm spot seemed to have been my primary motivation. Thankfully it has warmed up just a bit to just as cold as Rush Limbaugh's heart, which is tolerable enough for me to sit here starin' mindlessly at a computer screen without chatterin' teeth.

So, bloggin' can be done with a minimum of physical discomfort. Why do I feel so unmotivated to write about anythin'? The damned blue funk is supposed to be over already. I don't feel withdrawn, just uninterested in sharin' my inane thoughts about crap other than my mundane personal universe right at the moment. If I don't at least do that, I have discovered that ya'll worry too much about me.

So, let's see navel ... doin' well. My back is still achin' and has been for a couple of weeks now. I stopped by a chiropractor's office today, but didn't set an appointment. Mostly a shortage of time. My knee is also a bit sore from yesterday. I forgot to tell ya about when I got up to go to the bathroom in the cold cold night night* before last and in my rush to get back to the bed in the dark somehow strongly slammed my left kneecap into the door frame. I am gonna share somethin' very personal, I cussed George** loudly when that happened. It still hurts now, just to give ya some feelin' of what it felt like when it occurred. I quickly hobbled back to that waitin' warm bed where I lay mutterin' to myself about how bad my knee hurt for a good half hour before I fell back asleep.

Now, seriously ... was there anythin' I could'a blogged 'bout that would have interested ya as much as that? Pick any other subject other than myself and my thoughts about crap, and someone has already done a much better job of bloggin' 'bout it than me. And, to tell ya the truth, I would really rather ya were comin' here because ya was laughin' at how funny I look in that picture up there. Ya know, I am gettin' to the bottom of this and am without a clue as to where I was goin' with this post, so if it don't make a whit of sense, ignore it.

*If ya say it out loud, it really does make sense.

**I often consider that people who have not been readin' this blog forever are without a clue as to the identity of George.

Well, I'll bite. I haven't been reading forever - who is George?

Let's put it this way, guru--Tiger would call a certain blog "Kensho Georgechaser"....

"George" is his substitution for a three-letter word starting with the letter "G" and ends with "od". I just love that little quirk of his! :-)


...the cold cold night night* before last...

You mean "the cold cold night, from the night before last"? ;-)

See, I knew some people were payin' 'tention to what I was writin'. Yep, accordin' to scripture, it is a sin as pronounced by the Deity himself/herself to invoke the name of such Deity in vain. As such, whenever others might feel it necessary to do so, I will, instead, invoke the name of George in vain. This George is not such Deity, Cherry's Dadd, the current President of the United States or any former President, a character on the defunct sit-com Seinfeld but is solely that same George to which Professor Henry Higgins referred when Eliza Doolittle was finally able to eloquently say the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain whereafter he delightedly stated By George! I think she's got it.

P.S. to Denita: Yep! but wasn't bein' able to put two double words back to back in a sentence just too good an opportunity to pass upon?

Reminds me of the Jehovah sequence from Life of Bryan.
