Random Brain Syndrome

My original idea of a name for my blog was A Rant A Day. I discarded this because it soon became apparent that I was not going to rant every day for the rest of my life. I had no intention of posting every day either. The second idea for my blog was: Random Blog Of A Random Brain.

This seemed appropriate because that is how my brain seems to operate. I think that I must be suffering some kind of a syndrome. Maybe it is called Random Brain Syndrome or maybe it should be called: Useless Information Rattling about Brain Syndrome. The following is a sample of what I go through every time I sit down to write a post. Let me be honest here. It is what goes on when I try to sleep. It is what goes on when people are talking to me. I am an ill person and I think this disorder is incurable.

"I mean it! Do you want a peanut? What to write about today? Tomorrow, Tomorrow! I love you tomorrow! It is only a day away...

I have been wanting to write a children's story for quite some time for my grandchildren. I have procrastinated over this as I am not really sure what they would like the story to be about. I am not sure where to begin. I am not sure how to create the characters. I am not sure how to form the plot.

Hahaha! That cat is a dufus! What a toddler. What a maroon. I see the moon the moon sees me. Under the shade of the old oak tree.

For pity sake! Where was I? O.K. back up. Lets see. Yes! Children's story. I made my decision today while sitting out in the cabin house (my cabana) that any topic would be fine. I could even take the topic from that WELCOME stone. On the stone are the three main characters. A Dragonfly, A Butterfly and A Hummingbird. Nice title, I say as I bang the computer desk. Hang on a second as I rescue the mouse. M-I-C-K-E-Y -M-O-U-S-E Micky Mouse...hey. Typing that out took a lot of hand eye coordination.

Well that's a start anyway. Goodnight I am going to bed. Goodnight Irene. Goodnight John boy. Goodnight moon.

My brain wanders so much I am afraid it will be able to break free of its leash and get lost forever. You are not alone.

Yup, we've all got wandering brains at some point or another. :)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting over at Nablopomo!

And here I thought this was a condition peculiar to my family. My daughter talks that way, too.

You know what's really weird? This post made total sense to me! ha ha ha. Loved it!

Whew! I am so relieved! I AM NORMAL!

I'm not sure about normal, but at least you are not alone. haha.
I'm not online much lately when I am really awake enough to do much. I'm hoping that will change soon. I think it will, but things are just so busy. I can't figure it out because I quit my second job, so I should have MORE time, not less. I think part of the reason is a wandering and forgetful mind. I can't get my brain organized to even complete the simplest task lately. I will email you my number today. I keep forgetting but want to be sure you have it before you get here.
I'm so excited to get together and talk.
oh...and I almost forgot...
You have the perfect children's story wandering around in your brain. Just think back to a blog post of Becky's. There are the perfect characters for a great children's story. I will leave you to come up with the plot.
Spud and Rocky.
Or maybe you'd like to become a famous cartoonist with a weekly comic strip of the adventures of Spud and Rocky.

I originally wanted to call mine Don't Call Me Sweetie. Locals here call everyone Sweetie. It's sickening.
