Friends! Romans (sure, why not?)! Fellow MS Bloggers! Lend me your ears (and some cash, if you're feeling especially generous -- HAHAHAHA! Watch out, David Letterman!). I've found the cure for writer's block! Ms. CrankyPants' Cure for Writer's Block (TM) is best illustrated with a picture of the item that today compelled me to:
- Do several loads of laundry
- Wash the shower curtain (had a bit of a mildewy smell, you know?)
- Vacuum (okay, it was the Roomba, but still)
- Clean the birdbaths
- Refill the birdfeeders
- Check the birdhouses for evidence of new nests
- Shred some documents
- Take a shower
- Clean the bathrooms
- Compose this brand-new post (breaking my week-long absence)
So, without further ado:

So, without further ado, take 2:

Ta-da (third time's always a charm!):
|F*** it! I'll post the sideways one too; it's easier to read.|
|How incredibly annoying. This Blogger program makes adding pictures a bit...challenging. I'm willing to consider that it may be me, but only half-heartedly.|
|TK, if you're reading this, I...well, I'm sorry I never returned this book. I haven't read it, either, if that helps.|
Ah, yes. So, what do I get from reading the two books? Well, sure, a carefree retirement filled with traveling and, er, traveling and, ummm, well, you know. Stuff retired people do. Not worrying about money. And in my position -- someone with a massively expensive and progressive disease -- financial security is something I must take seriously. And plan for. Like, yesterday.
So these books are sitting right here next to me. Ooh, and right next to THEM is the remote. Plus, I just heard the dryer buzzer go off. I'll pop down for a quick check on the laundry, which I really should put away before it gets wrinkly. Ah, and I do need to make a pan of Swanky cornbread for dinner. I guess the books can wait 'til tomorrow.
By the way, if anyone wants to borrow Ms. CrankyPant's Cure for Writer's Block (TM), I'll happily lend you these books, and I'll even pay for shipping! No, really, I insist.
