Let's Talk About It

**Before I start, I missed Project Runway last night. I fell asleep and didn't set an alarm (yes I set alarms to watch tv) so let's not talk about it!! Thanks!!**

100 Things to Post About. A few of the things Jameil will NOT be doing, and a few things she might, (and why).

1. Go for a walk. Draw or list things you find on the the sidewalk. Because I'm not that weird.

2. Write a letter to yourself in the future. I considered this. But I wasn't that bored.

3. Buy something inexpensive as a symbol for your need to create, (new pen, a tea cup, journal). Use it everyday. I'd rather buy clothes.

4. Draw your dinner. I'd rather eat it. Look at that. I just searched food on my blog and look how much stuff came up. Someone's hungry!! Who's cooking?

5. Find a piece of poetry you respond to. Rewrite it and glue it into your journal. I don't journal. I blog. (Didn't that sound snobby? I love it) I don't think my dad would approve of me glueing a poem to the computer screen. Plus it would be hard to see through.

6. Glue an envelope into your journal. For one week collect items you find on the street. That is disgusting. What if I lived in a rundown area? I'm supposed to collect condom wrappers and McDonald's cups and beer cans? And what if I live ANYWHERE!! I don't want to pick up your trash and collect it!!

7. Expose yourself to a new artist, (go to a gallery, or in a book.) Write about what moves you about it. Actually, bloggers get me to do this quite frequently-- explore that is. But I don't think I'll be writing about it.

8. Find a photo of a person you do not know. Write a brief bio about them. Come on. This just reeks of desperation. (Probably not unlike writing an entire post about what you WON'T blog about.) But maybe it works for you if you're writing a novel and need some random inspiration. Yes? No?

9. Spend a day drawing only red things. I'm doing NOTHING else? Just drawing red things? Tomatoes. But not tomato soup. Salsa. But not pureed.

10. Draw your bike. Don't have one of those. Well, I do. But it's at my mom's house and needs air in the tires. I don't even remember what it looks like. I think it's teal, tho. Pretty sure of that. I remember the name of the shop where we bought our bikes, Soft Spokin. I thought it was clever. (What? I was 10 or something and read a lot). They closed a few years later.

11. Make a list of everything you buy in the next week. Is this some sort of sneaky attempt to get me to budget? I did have a dream last night that I spent $310 that I did not have on a $256 skirt and a dress (obviously that piece was on sale). I was heated with myself!! I woke up and was like, phew! Thank God that was a dream!!

12. Make a map of everywhere you went in one day. Why? I already have one stalker that I know about. Let's not add to that.

13. Draw a map of the creases on your hand, (knuckles, palm) WHY? WHY? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYYY???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

14. Trace your footsteps with chalk. Didn't we do this in kindergarten? Or was it first grade?

15. Record an overheard conversation. Ha! Now this one I actually might do. A la Liz talking to strangers.

16. Trace the path of the moon in relation to where you live. Sigh. Your tracing and drawing etc. is driving me batty.

Pause. I just realized these are just random ideas, not necessarily things to blog about!!! LMAO!! I saw it on a post about possible blog topics!! Wow. That was such a Stace blonde moment!! HUH-larious. I think some of them are supposed to be possible for blogs but as you see... lots of them are not. Sigh. BUT on the flip side, I did get a post out of it! One more day!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Rashan has already offered to keep going the entire month of December. Let's give a hand to Rashan!! Out of curiosity, who's posted everyday?

Rashan Jamal said...

I said what now? I dont remember that. I said YOU should do it, not I.

When you gave me this list, I was like this is for a regular journal, but I didn't say anything.

Mademoiselle M said...

c'est pas MOI! I did NOT post everyday as you can see lol. I may give December or Jan a try. Hmm. I'll do some thinking on it!

La said...

you get a round of applause for just going this far. Clearly I woulda been out by now, lol.

Make the last one good! I'm excited!!!!


PRESSURE! PRESSURE!!!

1969 said...

jameil1922 said...

1969... nablopomo has a list of post ideas and this popped up. i'm really wondering why. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT!!

Minerva Exertion said...

I was able to sqeeze out 10 posts. That's a record for me. I usually post twice a month.

Minerva Exertion said...

BTW, more power to you with the everyday posts!!

Sparkling Red said...

The idea of keeping an envelope of things you find in the street is just gross. Here is what would be in my envelope:
old squashed gum blobs
rock salt
a greasy puddle of slush
dog poop

Not exactly inspiring!

the joy said...

Yeah thpare are sucky ideas. Even if you were trying to be creative. They sound like things stace would have the kids do.

One more day! I'll wake up lost on Saturday, not knowing what to do with my blog time.

Stacie von Kutieboots said...

there's pureed salsa? that sounds like spicy tomato soup.

those ideas were wack.

jameil1922 said...

minerva... lol. thanks! 2xs a month??? homie!! you can do better than that!! i know you can!! how abt 12 for dec, yes??

red... that is so far from inspiring there has to be another name for it-- yes i found it. vomit-inducing!!

joy... this is what i'm sayin!! keep going!! just blog incessantly still.

stace... qdoba has some. it's tasty but so odd i was tempted to ask for more than one kind of salsa. you should try all of those ideas w/the kids. write a haiku was on there, too. lol.

Liz said...

I missed Project Runway last night too! Mostly because I was dancing attendance on my bridezilla girlfriend! And I hope homeslice didn't get paid for that list because some of those blogging ideas are just wack! I think he was stretching...and LMAO on talking to strangers like I do! That's right!
