The Well Went Dry
I guess my insightful marbles and rubber chicken post yesterday tapped out The Muse.
I’m at another lean spell on blog topics. So you know what that means!
Imagination Prompt roulette!
A spin of the wheel and away we go!!
Your present job makes you…
Able to pay the rent and buy groceries and every once in a while, a stupidly expensive bauble.
One food you would never give up is…
What?!? Give up a food?!? : looks around suspiciously :
Never! You can’t take me and my twinkies alive!
You’re telling me.
(I don’t make these up…they come straight off the prompt)
I remember when…
…my dad used to start a sentence with “I remember when…” and then I’d turn up the television just a little bit louder.
Why do you feel like you do right now?
A carefully managed concoction of sugar, fat, salt, and vodka. Lots and lots of vodka.
What’s the coolest piece of technology you work or play with?
I work for the most austere tech company in the world. We don’t make cool. We make reliable.
So that lets out the work part of the question.
Play with? Well, the husband has an iPad which is VERY cool. When he got that, I got his MacBook Air. I know the technology is a couple years old but I’m deeply enamored of this little thin machine. It’s beautiful and reliable and it makes the PC on my workdesk look like a hunchback.
What’s the last piece of art you made?
Ok, now we’re in my wheelhouse!
I think it was the three small canvases that I turned in for the Brooklyn Art House Co-Op project. I mailed those out on Sept 1.
That’s a LOOONG dry spell of not creating any art.
I’d better get on that.
High school reminds you of…
Horrible dark things I shant share here.
I generalize about _____ because…
… _____ is so specific.
Because I’m booked later.
Could you stay in bed all day and think?
Yes. I could also stay in bed all day and not think if anyone is looking for that talent.
Today when I put on my pants, I…
Double checked I’d zipped my fly. Otherwise it’s too drafty.
Money is _____ and here’s why
Wait. I thought _____ was specific. Now it’s specifically money?
I have the golden touch!
I’m off to go spend my _____ all around town.
And there we have it.
Thanks for tuning in through the latest edition of Writer’s Block!
