Brain Fog and Crazy Thoughts

stupidfaceDo you ever have those days where you wake up in a mental fog? Yeah, it’s one of those days for me. For some reason, I wrestled with sleep last night and as a result today seems fuzzy around the edges so far. It’s unfortunate that this is my mental state on the last day of the year, but unless the coffee takes effect quickly, I may be resigned to live-out 2014 in the mist!

If you’re like me, when you’re in a mental state like I’ve described above, you notice random things and you think crazy thoughts.

For example, I can’t stop staring at this guy sitting at the table across from me (in a coffee shop, of course). He looks like he weighs about 140– no obvious sign of muscle of any kind.  He’s eating a breakfast souffle, a giant muffin and an egg, cheese and ham sandwich, topped-off with a large orange juice.  I wonder if he’s competing in a triathlon today?

“Top 7 List”…in 140 characters or less

I know right?  Who writes a “Top 7 List“? Well…today I’m refusing to conform to the confining box of “top 10” or any other vanilla, dime-a-dozen multiples of 5. For all of you who have OCD issues with numbers (you know who you are…you’re the ones who can’t read just ONE blog post at a time, you have to read them in even number quantities), I apologize in advance, but it is what it is.

#confessionsofacasualtwitteruser. Sitting here with cup #2 (see how I did that? Shortest hashtag ever.) of my San Francisco Brew, surfing Twitter. Since I took a few days off work this week, I had a little more time than usual on my hands and as a result I found myself nosing around trending topics.

Thursday night I became obsessed with a trending topic titled #ScaryStoriesIn5Words and I’ve been randomly following it since then.  Funny stuff in 5 words or less. Here are my top seven tweets on this topic…

1. Donald Trump’s Hair Terrorizes NY @floweroflife22
2. …tagged you in a photo @ndrewmarin
3. …and these cupcakes are vegan @ItsMikeFagen
4. Yoko Ono sings National Anthem @angelacobb
5. “Like your plan, keep it!” @BattleSwarmBlog
6. I died writing this tweet @TheBenWells
7. “Sorry, we only have decaf…” @TrivWorks

I know…I have a weird sense of humor.  Been told that a lot.  I’d apologize for it, but would it really make a difference?  With that said, I DO apologize for the aimless ramblings of this post, I think vacation has thrown me off my game this week!

FYI, for those of you who enjoy blogging and are always looking for good tips, be sure to read the interview I posted earlier this week with Caroline Hendry.  Also, be sure to check back Tuesday– I’ll be posting a great interview from a blogger most of you will recognize right away. See you then!
