If Only I Had a Brain

So, it turns out that staring at a blank computer screen for one hundred and thirty-seven consecutive hours is not the best way to get ideas. Why did nobody tell me? 

I figured this out for myself eventually. Only five and a half days wasted.

Jusmeh recently asked me “Where do you find the inspiration for your blogs?” H’mm, let me see…

LIFE IS THE ANSWER

An unfortunate home hair dying incident when I was seventeen resulted in me adorning hats for the entire summer of 1999. This seemed a fitting tale to include in my post I Really Should Have Thought This Through, which, much to my delight embarrassment was Freshly Pressed in February.

Just to reiterate: I still don’t know whether blondes have more fun, but I can verify that oranges certainly do not. 

A few months ago, I noticed a sweet little girl on the bus, with big brown eyes, short curly auburn hair and a cheeky grin. She turned to her mother and said “When I grow up mummy, I want to be a tomato”. Quite clearly a god ‘dam genius – she inspired my post Think Different.

I have been unable to eat a tomato ever since. 

My brother Oli recently invited me for Sunday lunch. A prospect that would have filled me with joy, if it wasn’t for the fact his latest pancake attempt looked like scrambled eggs and he referred to his colander as coriander. I survived though and had lots of new material for my post “I Just Found a Chicken Bone in My Cheesecake. Is That Bad?

Thank you brother. Your thrice microwaved chicken was delicious. 

A couple of weeks ago, I decided it would be a brilliant idea to walk three miles home in four inch heels. Turns out – it wasn’t.

I ended up in agony, with several blisters and one less toe. My post This Season I Shall Mostly Be Wearing Slippers was born. 

If only I had a brain.

  1. Yep. I find it’s the little things that inspire me to write a post. And those are often the best. And when you get picked for FP, it’s not the one you would have picked! But still great anyway.

    • Thank you! 🙂 I’m sure if you saw a photo of my brother Oli you would fully appreciate the uncanny resemblance. Obviously I am much slimmer than shown, with a smaller head. 😉

  2. Ohhh…. so thrilled to have my question inspire a post 🙂
    You of course do have a brain, but more than that you also have courage and a heart!

    I think I shall call you Legend… (wait for it)…..dairy!

    I do hope you like “How I meet your mother” or you would not get this quote! :l

    • Ha! I didn’t know the reference (sorry) but swiftly YouTube’d it and laughed out loud! Thank you! 😀

      Tee hee! I wonder if I can convince my husband to call me that now too… 😉
