Day 2, out of ideas. This does NOT bode well.

So, at some point recently, I jotted this down on a slip of paper. Since I’m a giant girl and I have to post something for NaBloPoMo, this won’t get to sit on my bedside table for a few days before being tossed out…

If I could be who you wanted (I can)
would I change a thing?
If I knew what you were looking for (I do)
is that what I would bring?

If I could read your mind (I have)
would I use that to cheat?
If I could act like what you think you need (again)
would I do it when we meet?

No…

But, would you want me to?

**********************************************************

Further explanation…

You know how most people doodle when they are bored, or thinking of other things? Well, I can’t draw for shit. So, I jot down words. Sometimes they form sentences. Sometimes not.

This post came from that. I was listening to Radiohead and just scribbling.

Actually, I was just now writing on the back of an envelope. Today’s masterpiece…

“Fuck you and you and you and you and you, but not you, DEFINITELY you.

Love and kisses,
Grandma”

And you people read my blog.

    I’m out of ideas, too — but at least you’ve posted something today! (Found you through Jamelah… erm… well her blog that is.)

  2. Paige Jennifer says:

    Wait, I liked that. I have no idea what statement that makes about my taste but I’m sticking to my original sentiment.

  3. sidewaysrain says:

    peter, you are a man of many contrasts.

  4. Peter says:

    caryn: Hi! And welcome.

    paige jennifer: Thanks! And I wonder what statement it makes about me for writing the thing.

    sidewaysrain: You don’t know the half of it. Oh wait, you actually do.

    Hehe. Grandma.

    your grandma seems sweet

  7. Peter says:

    molly: My brain is a scary place.

    nycpodnerings chick: Fucking right.

  8. Clink says:

    I always thought I was a ‘real’ writer because I’m always jotting things down and coming up with random characters and storylines.

    Now I think I’m just slightly crazy. Like you.

  9. Peter says:

    clink: Can’t we be slightly crazy AND real writers?

    Please say yes.

    Here’s something to help you: you’ve been tagged. The rules are on my blog. Have fun!

  11. Eve says:

    Hmm. I draw formless doodles. It’s weirdly engaging.

    What have we gotten ourselves into?

  12. Airam says:

    Wicked second post! Man if this is the stuff that you come up with when you’re just JOTTING stuff down then I’m so screwed for this POMO thing!!!

    My mind is reeling on things I can write though … there are some skeptics who think I’ll be writing shit “I had cereal for breakfast today” posts so I need to try and prove them wrong!

  13. CamiKaos says:

    If my grandma was a little more like that grandma I might want to hang out with her.

  14. Michelle and the City says:

    i’m one of the doodlers… :)

  15. sybil law says:

    You are nuts.
    But in a good way. :)

  16. mindy says:

    Radiohead will do some strange shit to your brain. Be careful.

  17. jamelah says:

    You were listening to “Fake Plastic Trees” right?

  18. Krista says:

    I’m out of ideas too just staring at the screen….

  19. Peter says:

    losingit: Thanks for the thought, but I have a strange aversion to memes. I haven’t figured out why yet…

    eve: I have no idea… I am hoping that one of these days I’ll get a burst of inspiration and stockpile a few posts.

    airam: Thanks! I have faith that you can come up with intersting and non-breakfast related posts.

    camikaos: Ha! True enough.

    michelle: I wish that I was. I am always writing cartoon strips… and then trying to figure out how to turn them into a blog post.

    sybil: There’s a bad way?

    mindy: I hear that. Today I went old school Motley Crue for a while. Made me want to grow my hair.

    jamelah: Exactly! That line stuck in my head. So, I wrote it down. And then I just kept writing.

    krista: Don’t you hate that? Always feels like the screen is staring back. And judging.

    That is SO my Grandma. I buy her bulk bottles of V-8 at Costco and that buys me about 3 weeks of loving me. Then I’m back on the shit list.

  21. lfar says:

    Love the second one. (umm. The first was okay too)

  22. Steph says:

    I draw rude body parts. I don’t even want to know what that says about me.

  23. Becky says:

    First time posting and I just wanted to say that I freaking love that little “ditty” that you jotted down.
