WTF Friday, Now with More WT!

My brain is broken. Today's entry will probably be nonsensical. However, that's not much different than any other day, so never mind.

I started the new book. I think I mentioned that yesterday, didn't I? And I used the phrase "merpire yingyang." This is now my new favorite phrase. Pretend that I put it into the meme yesterday under the My Favorite Words category. Frankly, it's so awesome that I think I need to write a song about it.

I have looked and looked for "Paeon to Wobbly Hamsters," which is a poem I wrote years ago. I think you'd like it. (Yes, I mean YOU.) Unfortunately, I think it was swallowed by one of my old computers. Maybe, just maybe, I'll write another poem with that title. Because titles don't get much better than that, do they?

I should note that I can't take credit for it. One of my oldest writing buddies challenged me to write a poem about wobbly hamsters. He wrote one too, and we traded. His was kind of gross but in that amazing imagery kind of way. Mine was quite naturally silly. Or maybe it's more accurate to say mine was, quite naturally, silly.

Damned commas.

Anyway, kudos to Monte for coming up with majorly cool hamster related poetry ideas.

I have this nagging feeling that I was supposed to do something this weekend but can't remember what it is. Don't you hate it when that happens?

That made perfect sense to me.

I feel like that every day. Like, "Wait. Why did I come downstairs?" So I get it.

You're quirkiness is so much fun - that's exactly why I love this blog! ;-)

I studied nonsensical at college - it always makes sense to me, unlike commas.

FIND THAT POEM!!! Because I want to read it.

I love your random silliness. I actually think that only writing geniuses can write such completely random funny stuff. You make it look easy. :)

I love that your WTF Friday comes with more White Trash! What? That's not what you meant when you said WT??!?! I totally need to get these things straight?

Woot on the newly-started book! And I totally hope you find the poem.

I get that feeling... I'll stop and wonder why the heck I put the toaster in the fridge, and why was I using the toaster in the middle of the afternoon anyway?

My brain is always fried when I'm writing.. No worries.. :)
