It’s a load of Rubbish… Read at your own Risk

Agent Green Glass finishes a 101 and Choco writes a 100, and I sit here trying to think of something to write. I realise that I have been thinking ever since I wrote some stupid story about the sweetness of salt.

I burn with envy. How can they be so prolific. Ms. R seems to churn out one poem a day. And each one seems to make so much sense.

In anger, I hunt blogosphere. I have to find another blogger as lethargic as I. My hunt leaves me frustrated and depressed. Everyone seems to be updating the blog at least once a day. And there are those idiots who do it twice.

Slowly I realise. Now I understand how the “little” boy felt in the common shower.

I can’t even update mine once a week. What can I write about? Nothing seems interesting enough. I have a few stories spinning in my head – but then I am too lazy to pen them down.

I can’t write poetry. I can’t intellectualise. I can’t write about food. I find politics boring. History repeats. Stories take too long. Films are watched and then forgotten. Work life is a constant. Women never change much. Who wants to write about men anyway? Nostalgia dawns… then yawns. And pets I don’t have.

I need inspiration. Or a muse. Or something to amuse.

Then I read Choco… write for yourself she screams… and as always she sounds candid… and threatening. I say fine. OK. I will write. For myself. Do I have a choice? Who wants to incur the wrath of a candid friend.

So I write this rubbish on my blog.

I am inspired.

I have moved my ass.

Now I move my fingers.

Still no muse

But now I am amused.

I have a post

I have exorcised the ghost

I rest in peace…

I can be lazy for another week

My blog name should change…

One post a week... by a very lazy freak

Once when I took a public speaking course - the adage was never speak on anything you haven't earned the right to speak on. I think the same goes for writing.
I personally would love to know about you. What was your most embarassing momen? Or that first kiss? How awkward was it? Or maybe the best advise your father or uncle ever gave you. I think you get it.

Ms.R. said...

Called me an idiot did you? :P I am guilty of more than a post a day! Hahahaha. But there is some one who can beat you @ your muse. CM. IT's been over two weeks since he wrote a post on his own blog :P

@ Choco
"you can get away with murder"
You can probably hire me to kill a few people in Kannur. I can do that easily with my bad jokes.

And, yes, princess, I am pleased to be your court jester.

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ Grayquill

Hmmm... Yes, I can write about all this... If only I wasn't so goddamn lazy...

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ AGG

Welcome back... We share this liking for rubbish... Lets keep at it...

@ India TV... Yes... my new muse is the bald egghead with a mole on his face... The lord of rubbish...

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ R

NO. I can't call you an Idiot. You can... :-)

And I can see that CM hasn't written everything and I see him on your blog, frustrated, lagaoing naarebaazi for "happier posts" :-D

This is that said...

hahahaha..It's good to be bored. It's good. It's good to dry up. It helps you write because you feel, not because you have to.

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ This is That

Its a raging internal debate... I am still trying to figure out if I am really bored or am I just lazy...

Nikki said...

And so says the meandering mind! After you have written this, I don't think you need to discuss about something or someone. You can go about this randomness as it makes a lot of sense.

Thank you for stopping by! I shall keep visiting and now, blogrolling you.

Nikki.

As the Mind Meanders said...

Thank You Nikki.. I am honored... and please finish that story...

Grayquill said...

I got a feeling you are not even a little bit lazy.

laid off diary said...

I can't say that I understood your entire post, but at the same time, it was very poetic. you're definitely a good writer.

well, creativity doesn't come that often so embrace it whenever it comes, even if it doesn't fit in your "blog posting schedule."

I've bookmarked you--maybe the more posts I read, the more I'll understand!

As the Mind Meanders said...

Thank you for visiting Nikita... glad you like rubbish... that's what I churn out generally... :-)

K. said...

LOL...I think blogs are places to unload your thoughts...sometimes they turn into something, sometimes they don't...I hope no one takes all my blogs (which are sometimes prolific) to be my best work (they're not!) but they are fun for me to do...:)

Good luck!

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ K

Thank you K. Thank you for visiting my blog and thank you for understanding...

prithvi said...

As the Mind Meanders said...

Hi Prithvi,
