I Prefer “Eccentric” to “Weirdo”, Thanks

Writing Tools
“Never Grow Up”

I read a hint somewhere about how to clear my head for writing. I’ll link it if I ever find it again (or if someone comes across it, you’ll let me know, right?), but meantime… the “hint” was to buy a colouring book and crayons and whenever I get stuck while writing a story, I’m supposed to pull out my new tools and colour for awhile to drain my brain.

It was so simple and laughable and childish that I immediately went out and bought the “tools” you see above. Then, of course, I immediately forgot I bought them, and they sat in a packsack until I found them yesterday.

HOORAY FOR CHILDHOOD! I wonder if I’ll ever have the guts to use it out in public and call it “homework”. Then, of course, I will stick my tongue out at anyone that dares look at me funny.

Oh, and another thing…

A Greenpeace official in Australia said our meat-eating society should be raising kangaroos instead of cows, in that, since ‘roos fart less, global warming could be slowed . . . . .

Rory…? When did you join Greenpeace?!

They may fart less, but they still will taste like a rat!

These people slay me.

Les Says: I’m confused as to when you might have tasted kangaroo… or how you know they taste like “rat”. Please, for the love of God, Mushy, don’t enlighten me!

Oh Les, you know I’ll compete once given a challenge. I did find this link that gave a couple different ideas including the coloring book idea: Overcoming Writer’s Block

I always loved a brand new box of crayons, nice and sharp, strong yet supple.

Surprisingly (or not), I came up with a viable idea for NaNoWriMo in the shower the other day. I really think it has legs and I’m going with it. Again, I owe it to you Les. You are really turning into MY muse.

By the by, what country do you live in? You can’t be an American when you spell “coloring” with a U. Unless you’re attempting to throw me off track. I “hear” you in my head with a mid-western accent (like mine).

Les Says: That could very well have been the link – works for me anyway.

I am from the great, grand Land of Freaking Cold: Canuckia. I don’t know about an accent – I speak Gibberish mainly.

I really would rather you try to refrain from thinking of me in the shower, though. Muse, or no, it gives me the heebie-jeebies. 😉

Woah, woah, woah Gingah! I never said I thought of you while showering. Let’s not go there, eh?

Okay, here’s the deal I won’t talk about the shower anymore. No need to bring water into this discussion. I’ll just refer to my ideas in a general sense going forward. I think that will work for both of us.

Let’s just pretend I never mentioned hygiene. Uh, this is going nowhere fast, isn’t it?

Moving on, my grandparents hail from Canuckia and I proudly carry on the tradition of adding eh? to the end of random sentences when the mood strikes me, eh? I am frequently asked if I come from da U.P., eh? No, I’m from “down state” as they say. The Motor City!

Les Says: Ooh! Detroit! In that case, we’re sorta almost closer than you think because the servers for Where the Walls are Soft are somewhere in the middle of Detroit. Holy shit. I CAN be in two places at once!

I’ve eaten many a strange thing, including kangaroo, but no rat.

Has a strong gamey taste, more protein per weight as well…

I think I need to cook some roo in the near future…

Les Says: Oh, God. This isn’t going to be another “What Not to Cook…” episode is it?

“Gamey” taste… sounds as if the kangaroo is to Australia as the moose is to Canuckia.
