The "Seinfeld" of Blogs

Cute Cartoon Girl ThinkingHere I sit with my laptop on my...well lap.  My mind is quite blank and I don't have any witty opinions to share with you.  This I fear might be the "Seinfeld" of blogs.  With your permission, I might just end up rambling about anything that is passing through my brain.  OK, vintage, vintage, vintage.  The hypnotic way in which I am repeating this word to myself isn't helping at all right now.  I've got the television on, my day is winding down and it's been a busy one as usual.  Life seems to be spinning faster and faster these days.  Why is that?  And why did I put myself on this rat race wheel?

OK, it's slowly coming to me like molasses pouring out of a squeeze bottle.  A germ of an idea.  No, it's gone.  The harder I try to conjure up a brilliant thought in my brain, the more it's screaming "uncle, uncle".  Some days it's just like that.  Why can't the mind be a blank slate those nights I have trouble sleeping?  Right now I'd love a gaggle of elephants to pass through my living room so I can say that something really phenomenal just happened.  Sipping an alcoholic beverage for the last hour hasn't loosened me up much.  Maybe I need to move onto some harder stuff.  No, this vice isn't the answer most experts would say.

That is the beauty my beloved vintage and retro world.  I can escape and pay homage to the past at the same time.  I can believe in only the goodness of decades past and romanticize them the way I want.  Wow, I found a relevant angle.  I've always found that not trying is the best way to get words to screen.  What will I write about tomorrow?  Good question!

I can totally see Alice, the maid from the Brady Bunch wearing that Hawaiian shirt - and Sam the Butcher with a matching one! Love the pic.
