Nine Reasons I Can’t Write a Post Right Now

Posted by Elbereth

1. It’s after midnight and I really should be going to bed.
2. I’m too busy reading through all of the blog posts I started but never finished.
3. The gelato in the freezer is calling my name.
4. The cursor on my computer keeps jumping around, making it just too difficult to type.
5. I have to harvest my rice in Farmville so that I can get gold in the Co-op I started.
6. I need to give moral support to Lynnette as she organizes her CD collection.
7. I either have to reorganize the apps on my iPhone or the files on my computer, I haven’t decided which.
8. I have to rip the twenty-four CDs I purchased today.
9. Robot. Unicorn. Attack.

    10. The Patriarchy won’t let me.

    Ha, Elbereth, I love it! I think I identify most with #1. Unfortunately, when I do actually blog, it’s typically after midnight, which probably accounts for the somewhat rambly character of my posts.

    11. Writing a post feels like deliberate procrastination, while reading them is just accidental procrastination that you might stop doing at any moment.

    Good work, Lynnette! Now Elbereth is only less active and no longer inactive.

    I discovered Robot Unicorn Attack a few weeks ago, and my life and the life of my husband were forever changed.
