Distraction #2,067

Distraction #2,067

I had a couple of nifty blog post ideas swim through the old neural pathways prior to today. “Thoughts/struggles with prayer and faith” reads one note. Then there was a short-lived debate to write in a bit more detail some events Jeff and I are currently the midst of, but that was quickly shelved as we’re, well, in the midst of them. I also jotted down a lovely quote from Stephen Colbert: “If you’re laughing, I defy you to be afraid.” Isn’t that a great quote? And it’s true. Because when I’m truthfully laughing, I’m not afraid. Wait – blog post.

Yes, part of the problem with getting things beyond the idea state for today was I kept getting distracted by other things (If today’s title didn’t tip you off to that being an issue – surprise!). But I figured I might as well make lemonade out of these lemons I kept picking up. Therefore, in nothing resembling a chronological order, here are the things I distracted myself with last night when I should have been working on a blog post about something less … frivolous? Flighty? Oooo – squirrel!

  1. Oh, look – a trailer for Fox’s remake of the British miniseries Broadchurch called Gracepoint. I already know who the killer is … but David Tennant has really worked on his American accent, so 10 episodes of that could mix things up enough. Maybe.
  2. Paul Janz, former Canadian pop singer (Who remembers Go to Pieces?), is now a professor of theology in the UK. I wonder if he at least still sings in the shower? He looks pretty serious in his bio picture, so I’m going to hope he definitely does.
  3. What distracts squirrels? Do they get squirrely?

  4. Why is Jeff yelling downstairs? Oh, wait – he’s probably gaming with some buddies online.
  5. Jeff is definitely gaming with some buddies online. But I had to make sure. He might have sneezed too hard and hurt himself.
  6. No, really – he had surgery Saturday night.
  7. I’m hungry.
  8. Chuck is having a twisty second season. (Our latest Netflix obsession fun and completely under control fun find.)
  9. I’m still hungry. There's ice cream in the freezer.
  10. Maybe Jeff and I can squeeze in one more episode of Chuck tonight. Or I could read a book.
  11. Hey – this whole “distraction” thing could be good fodder for a blog post …
