A Whole Entire Day Just For Blogging

9:30 – *yawn* That was the first good sleep I’ve had in months. I’ve got a magical day off work and the house to myself. I haven’t had enough free time to blog in weeks, today’s the perfect chance! But, I’m not quite ready to wake up yet…

11:30 – Wow, it’s already almost lunchtime! I’m just gonna lay here for awhile…

12:00 – *stumble downstairs* Mmm I should probably make tea and breakfast. That’ll definitely help. Doo doo doo…

12:10 – *Skype bloopedy bloops* Oh YEAH I have a Skype date with my mom! I haven’t Skyped with her in forever!

1:20 – *phone rings* …Cool, haven’t talked to my grandma in forever and ever!

1:50 – Man, I am hungry. Oh yeah, I should probably have lunch.

 2:15 – I can’t really write while eating so maybe I’ll watch Rick Mercer, catch up on my Canadian culture and political satire…

2:45 – Haha, YouTube lists Jenna Marbles as related to Rick Mercer… she did a video about video games? Should probably watch that… she’s kinda funny, maybe I’ll watch one more video… okay just one more… just one more… okay, this is the last video…

3:30 – Oh, crap! What am I doing?! I haven’t even made it to WordPress yet! But I’ve been sitting here all day, I should probably do some stretches or something first…

3:45 – Okay, I can do this. What to write about… Oh, yeah, there was that video I saw a few days ago that I wanted to use as a starting point, what website was that on again… I can’t remember who posted it on Facebook, better scroll down… Oh, interesting article on the NY Times, I should try to incorporate this too… Hey, I haven’t checked Twitter yet today! Oh, and there was this article on the Medium that I meant to read later, I should go find that while I’m looking for stuff…

4:15 –  Agh! There are so many things I want to write about, but I have no idea where to start! How do all my awesome blogger friends DO it?! *Lightbulb ding* I know! I’ll put my dinosaur hat on. That’ll definitely help. Maybe I can even channel some of Rarasaur’s awesomeness!

4:25 – *doorbell rings* *run to door, realizing en route I am still wearing a dinosaur hat* *husband enters* Phew! Wait, he’s home already? That means an entire workday has passed and I still haven’t managed to even start the blog post I wanted to write…

4:30 – *doorbell rings again* A package from my friend in Norway! It’s “Pudding,” hooray! Must Instagram this right away…

4:45 – Husband’s off to get Starbucks and buy groceries for dinner, hasn’t seen me all day so he wants me to join him. I suppose a gingerbread latte and cranberry bliss bar wouldn’t hurt…

7:00 – Okay, where was I. Oh yeah, watching Rick Mercer for inspiration. He went to the Toronto Zombie Walk, that’s pretty cool! I wonder what I look like as a zombie?

7:30 – Note to self, I never want to look like a zombie. I’m definitely going to write a zombie. Write a blog post. Crap. I need a drink. Okay. Starting post.

8:00 – Dinner’s ready! Homemade potato soup, hooray for everything!

9:00 – It’s 9:00. I still haven’t played video games written a blog post yet today. How is that even possible? *put dinosaur hat back on* Okay, I can do this…

This post is dedicated to all my friends doing NaNoWriMo / NaBloPoMo etc. This is pitifully the first thing I’ve written all month, and I don’t even have pets or children as an excuse. You guys rock, I don’t know how you do it. You’re past halfway there now, go go GO! \(*^o^*)/
