Stuck in the Doldrums
Recognize that map? (A virtual bottle of Montepulciano D'Abruzzo to the first one who names it correctly.) See that maze-like portion of the road the over on the left? Somehow I've found myself stuck there for days. I'm in the Doldrums in Milo's car and I've run out of gas. Now I'm on foot trying to get back to the Sea of Knowledge, but I've got no map, no compass, not even a GPS. It probably wouldn't work with the mountains interfering anyway.
Today is the Vernal Equinox. I've always wanted to try out that trick of standing a raw egg on end out on the sidewalk on this official beginning of spring. Maybe that'll get me out of this funk. At least I seem to have smidgen of my sense of humor. Now if only my posts were as exciting and insightful as they used to be.
Wait... Google tells me that yesterday was the Vernal Equinox and a hoax busting website revealed that egg standing stunt as an utter myth. For the past two days I forgot to turn on my cellphone and missed three fairly urgent phone calls. I'm a mess. I need a secretary. I need a drink. Now I sound like everyone in The Tattered Dress, a movie I watched two nights ago and really didn't like at all. (No review for that one on Tuesday, you can bet.) And now this blog has turned into a self-absorbed overdose of Twitter-like commentary that I usually loathe.
I'm back in the Doldrums. Blah.
