2009 Has Broken My Brain

A pox upon these these accursed new years, with their positively pristine possibilities, their perfectly positioned potentialities, their perennial promise of power and prestige! A large pox, too! A medium or small pox won’t do in this case! For already has the chubby-cheeked 2009 cherub changed into a chuckling, cheerful Chucky chillingly chopping at my chances for change.


Say, would you please excuse that? I’m terribly sorry for it. I have no idea what that was. I’m having a perfectly fine year. In the past week I’ve written over 30,000 publishable words. That’s 75% of an entire trade paperback book.

Oh, [unacceptably un-Christian word]. I knew this was going to happen.

I’ve broken my brain.

Bummer. Bad beginning. Boy, I better begin bouncing back before blindly and blithely becoming beyond the bounds best

Please help me.

    Casey: Your personal evolution, you mean, or just … evolution generally? Either way, for Key Evolution Information, I totally recommend watching Jerry Springer. Talk about … feedback.

    That's the problem, Casey! You are multi-tasking. That should be avoided at all costs. Do the project first, since (I assume) there's a deadline ;-)

    Bet John's been doing the same thing (multi-tasking). See where that gets you in the long run?!?

    We had such a horrible spell of horrible weather at the start of January. That may have contributed to your mental condition. I know I was so cold I put on socks three days in a row…
