I said to myself, “Self, you need to do a better job keeping up with this blog. Daily writing helps improve your skills and if you’re going to take this writing thing seriously, it’s time to put your toes to the grindstone, or something like that.”
But Self, the low esteemed doubter she is, thought, “but how am I supposed to make my life sound interesting when literally the majority of the time, nothing happens?”
Take for example the high point of the day. We started watching the Direct to Video sequel of Disney’s Aladdin, called The Return of Jafar – don’t judge unless you have a 4- and 5-year-old – which, by the way Disney, do you think you could maybe allocate enough budget in character development for a new villain? At least in Little Mermaid 2 Return to the Sea they invented a sister for Ursula. Try a little harder. Anyway, while tuning out after laughing at the poor VHS to digital image conversion quality, it slowly dawned on me that Robin Williams didn’t come back to reprise his role as the genie. Listening closer, I thought, “this sounds like…Homer Simpson doing a Robin Williams impression.” Go to IMDB the credits, lo and behold it WAS Homer Simpson doing a Robin Williams impression! I felt giddy, positively tickled pink, to have been right about that.
This is why I don’t blog everyday.
But I will go back to writing about food soon and talk about my recent trip to New Orleans and getting soooooo fat. To be saved for another day.
