13, 14, 15: the perfect score
Damn, this isn't just going to take all day, it's going to take all of about three days. Patience grasshoppers. Note: this post is part of today's Spirit of America challenge.

A different Bill asks: Do you write "perfect" posts in your head while doing other menial tasks (like laundry, running errands), then get pissed off when you finally get to the computer and can't remember the perfect way you worded a statement in your head earlier? And as a followup, how many times a day do you wish you had a tape recorder to record these thoughts for later? Most of my "perfect" posts are written while driving or while in the shower. And then I get to the computer and sit down to type it out and poof, it's all gone. Or, it's still there, but it's not nearly as perfect, groundbreaking or phenomenal as I thought it was when it was writing itself out in my mind. Somtimes I'll come up with a turn of the phrase that is so genius I pat myself on the back, only to forget it as soon as I hit the keyboard. Of course it pisses me off, hence all the dents on the desk from where I continually bang my head in frustration. I'm a genius in my own mind and I don't even have the proof. As for the tape recorder - no. I hate the sound of my own voice and having to listen to myself repeat ideas back to me would just be too weird and unsettling - the voices in my head are number enough without having to add one more. Keeping with the blogging theme: Lesley asks: 14. What do you do when you can't for the life of you think of something to blog about? I have people ask me questions! Seriously, I have a special links list a mile long called "things to blog about when you have nothing to blog about." I rarely use it as my mind is the kind that never rests, not even in sleep and there's always something at the tip of my brain, ready to escape and be put into words. Of course, I have yet to learn to edit my wandering mind and I often times will blog things that were better left unblogged. 15. 38C. Give or take, depending on the day of the month.
