Day 562

http://www.weirdwarp.com/2009/05/blow-up-your-brain-with-quantum-physics-or-perhaps-not/


Yo ho ho (and a bottle of rum).

Not really. No alcohol at all last night.  But I do have a hangover. Only it's a brain overload hangover.  I think my head is going to blow right off!

Remember back a week or so ago I felt something in the wind?  It's all arriving. One after the other after the other.  It's wonderful. But terribly time consuming.

Yesterday I spent the entire day reading Deep Fried Fruit from beginning to end.  I was trawling to find my top three posts to secure my nomination in bloggy award thingo.  Then I had to answer a bunch of questions in post form.  That was kinda stressful. Only because I was only given two days notice about the award so I couldn't wait for inspiration to hit, I had to actually pull it from my innards. By the end of the day my brain was deep fried.

Yesterday Derek was notified that he has also been nominated for something.  He is getting a write up in the official Australian E Bay magazine regarding his little comics trading business. How exciting! He really is a rock star and feeling even more ridiculously good looking with every passing day. He was given 24 hours to get his interview and photo done. So now I'm working on that with him adding to the already overloaded deep fried brain.

Oh, and did I mention that a key deliverable on a client project is due today?  Yes well.  I haven't managed to get to that just yet.  Between entertaining kids during school holidays (mine and other peoples) and doing all the brain drain stuff, I've run out of time.  But today's a new day ... will get it done. And it's all good stuff.  All of it is worthwhile ... so I've got to keep going.  Fried brain or not.

Unfortunately the kids suffer a little when I am in the brain drain zone.  There is a point where I quite literally can't take another piece of information into my brain so I have to shut it down.  I can go through the motions and do the dinner and read to them and run the bath and give the cuddles.  But taking on board chitter chatter is a no go zone.

Last night as we drove to pick up Tahlia from her calisthenics class Darby felt the need to chat.  Not about anything in particular, just about every little thing that was going through his mind at that moment.  I was on sensory overload. I could not retain anything he was saying.

"Mum, did you know that when Eddy plays handball he does this rifle grip which is his pointing finger and his rude finger up in like a peace sign and then bent over the ball and then he slams the ball down and

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

and he just hammered him Mum, totally hammered him and

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

and do you remember how we saw that sheep tied up and

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

with a red light over there really glowing which I think must be


blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

around the round about over there

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

So why is that Mum? " 

"Huh?"

"Why do you think that is?"

"Darbs, I have no idea what you are talking about Dude".

"Oh, I was just saying that with the balloons and the big basket with the fire and the ropes there would have to be a

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

and then with green and yellow and a little bit of purple

blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

I totally saw his butt! Do you remember that Mum?"

"Nope, I don't remember it mate."

"Last week Mum. It was just last week. Hey ... did you see that dog? Look over there at that dog Mum".

"Dude, mate, Darbs, do you ever shut up?"

Lots of laughter.  "You said shut up!!"  

Total brain overload.  Can brains actually explode? 

Yeah, the kids suffer. I am trying my best today to give them the attention they need.  

Meanwhile I need to get back to it.  Back to being ridiculously good looking.


How's your brain?


Packed to the rafters like mine?


Or are you nice and cleansed and peaceful?
