Hello, TorontoEmerg, This is You Brain Calling

How I spent the last few days and how this relates to my plans for the coming week.

I spent the better part of Friday preparing to get drunk, and then, in fact, getting drunk. Far, far too drunk. This is funny, because I never drink, being the soul of moderation.

Saturday was the day after the night before.

Sunday I nearly went to church, but didn’t because I procrastinated till it was too late to go (I was writing a blog post, actually), and then I went shopping. I know I’ve said I’m a Christian and so on, and Christians are not supposed to drink to excess and even Sunday shopping is a little frowned upon — but I never said I was a good Christian. I’m hardly even a mediocre Christian. Too mouthy. Anyway, I also went to my new favourite all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant, perhaps to soothe the guilt of not doing my religious duty. I am a little embarrassed to relate I’m eating there so frequently the owner has given me a little card making me a “V.I.P customer” which entitles me to 10% off lunch and dinner. Last time I went he gave me a plate of delicious steamed mussels though they aren’t on the all-you-can-eat menu. This worried me, a little. When a man gives you a plate of steamed mussels in front of your husband, I think there is something going on. I was quite anxious about this. Would he repeat his free mussel performance? I glanced nervously toward the kitchen every few moments. I felt as though God was punishing me by wrecking my lunch. However, there were no further mussels.

Monday, I took  friend and her diabetic cat to the vet, then ended up shopping some more, which is very surprising, because I loathe shopping the same way some people loathe Justin Bieber. Incidentally, I saw his doll at 50% off. We intended just to run into the mall “for just a minute” at 1115 and stayed so long our planned lunch metamorphosed into supper.

Filed under the category of It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time is the fact that I’m working four day shifts in a row beginning today.

All of which is to say, posting may be light and insubstantial over the next few days. I don’t even have any ideas for light and insubstantial posts. I have no blog posts written in advance. I used up my emergency reserve post a couple of weeks ago.  My brain has gone on vacation.

I am a bad blogger.

I hang my head. In shame.

    Acknowledging that you are a bad blogger is the first step to blogger recovery. And any Christian who hasn’t sinned is lying.

    That is what grace is for!

    I am sure your brain will recover, and you will be more productive soon.

    Your posts are worth waiting for, IMHO!
    Happy New Year!
