Physician, Heal Thyself

I had a significant revelation today. My lifelong dream of being a syndicated columnist is now dust and ashes, for lo, if I were a syndicated columnist, I'd have to come up with significant things to say on a daily basis. And guess what? I can't.

So instead I am going to spend the day doing for myself what I am paid to do for others, something which, btw, I love to do for others and not so much for myself. I will be striving to get rid of this:

Oh, and The Child got all her makeup work done this weekend and I didn't even have to crack open the gin. Praisalluia.

Achoo.

See?
Cut, print.

Do they say "cut" in the syndicated columnist business or just "print"?
And if it's an online sydicated column, do they even say "print"?
These are the questions that must be answered.

How did you take a picture of my desk from Seattle?

Gezundheit.

The difference between you and I is that I simply don't blog at all, thus conveying the impression that I have many significant things to say but no time in which to do so.

So much for the mystique.

And you're expecting me to do that now, when I'm clearly so very busy?

Nicole, say fromage!

JP: Dang. Should have gone for the silence=mystique angle rather than blog and show the paucity of my creativity. Crap.

I have nothing to blog about today...but my desk is very neat. I am a little freaky when it comes to order...the picture even gave me the chills. I was about to pack my bag and come and tidy up for you. I think I need to drink more, then I can relax. After I shred todays junk mail.

You're an organizer? Funny, I just started getting paid to help people declutter.

You will feel much better after you sort and put in piles and files and write checks....and trash. You know this. It is your job. The sneeze....it was just a little brain fart and you will be fine in a minute.

Sageweb, please note update on blog strictly for the purpose of restoring your peace of mind.

A nice gig when you can get it, eh, Rhea?

Rosie, feeling better all ready. Now to pay the bills, dum da dum!

Suppose someone was to pay you thousands of dollars per week for said columns. I bet you'd find the inspiration then.

That is true, Iwanski. I'd happily whore myself for thousands of dollars. In a writerly way, that is. Plus, to be honest, I usually always have something to say about politics but since that isn't ALL we do around here, I try to keep it to a post a week. Unlike Mo Dowd, who can wax on and on about it all the time because that's what she's paid for.

Do what syndicated columnists do.
Reprint!
The 'Big Ass Tree' story would have been appropriate,what with Arbor day coming up.
Or has it already passed?..I just don't know.

Ain't it, Hat?
I also like "opacity".

Oooh, Sling. That's brilliant.
