The calm before the storm.

My brain is a bit cloudy these days and it is leaving me challenged to be creative.  Well that and all I can hear in my mind is the theme song to wonder pets. “Wonder pets, wonder pets, save the day” And of course I hear it in my daughters voice as she chants it around the house. She also sings a nice little song I made up about lightning bugs and how their booties glow. Because there is nothing like a kid singing about bug booties glowing.

The dense fog of winter is settling in and has taken a hold of everything even my mind. But, how can one be expected to think when it is so damn hot in January. And for us in Louisiana so damn wet. The rain is relentless. Literally we are now under a national emergency for the entire state. When it rains for a week straight here, we are in feet and feet of water and it won’t go away. This is why I think there must be tons of people murdered and dumped in the bayou. With all this gator infested water everywhere, nobody will find you. Just don’t go driving around up to no good out in cajun country. You have been warned.

Sure, I could try and come up with something to jump start my mind, but ain’t nobody got time for that. Ok that was awful. Forgive me. Maybe I will just go get my pint of Ben and Jerry’s (that I really shouldn’t have bought since they donated money against the campaign in california to label genetically  modified food) And sit on the couch and watch a documentary about the life of Buddha and enjoy the mellow calm that comes with a clouded mind.

We all know there is always a calm before the storm.


So that’s how you really feel?

Sometime you just have to get something off your chest. And no I do not mean the two beers you snuck into the movies with you inside your bra.

People seem to love to vent. It helps you let out the emotion you have been holding onto in order to remain professional and polite amongst other people.

So here it is folks, my vent:

1. I am super pissed that I have yet to win the lottery. Who do I have to screw to get a winning lottery ticket? Every time my dad buys a lottery ticket he smiles at the check out girl and says “I would like the winning lottery ticket please.” Obviously this is not working, or he is holding out on me.

2. Why do adults not get nap time in America? Who decided this? Well I am over this. I demand an afternoon nap! What do we want? NAPS! When do we want them? NOW!

3. Parents teaching their kids to hate. I could write a book on this one. No one is born full of hatred and fear about another person. That must be taught. It breaks my heart into a million pieces.

4. Ice cream has calories. What is that about? How am I supposed to justify eating all that Ben and Jerry’s?

5.When are they going to get around to discovering how to send people from place to place like they do in star trek? Beam me up Scotty! I have places to go, people to see. Someone get on this!!

I feel so much better. Don’t you?
