Perspiration or inspiration

I have been thinking about something to write for a few days now and I am at a total loss. I cannot think of anything. Not about work, not about my private life, not even about my cats (who are asleep right now by the way). Now don't get me wrong, if you were to meet me in person, I would not shut up for a minute. Talking about things that have happened, telling the same story twice or even more and generally making people shut me out after a while (I know they do and can understand them as well).

But right now, I've got a bit of a blogger's block. Yes, I could tell you stories I've already told you. Of course I could tell you a stupid joke. And I might even be persuaded to put up some silly photo of myself. So, here goes:

I went on this study trip recently. And where every other course is designed to teach you something, I think the only goal of this trip was a little reunion for the tourguides. I didn't learn anything, if you don't count how to be the most arrogant person on the coach that is, because we all learned that! I did do some driving, as did five of my colleagues. Sixteen were left looking out of the windows without a thing to do. Not a single evaluation of what I did, not a single word of encouragement was heard. According to one of my colleagues the tourguides didn't think my job at all worthy of anything positive, but then again, they were -as we call it- cold poo! The hot-potato-in-mouth type of women who were completely unused to any driver doing their job! But, we got through it and apart from the pigeons (as I called the tourguides) we had a nice three days.

Do you know, I hadn't told you this story had I? So, you're in luck and I produced something new. Ha...

Stupid joke: how does an elephant get in the car? Answer: he opens the door, gets in and closes the door. So, how would a giraffe get into the car?

And the silly photo? Well, did you look up top?


  1. I think you've given me Commenter's block.

  2. It will all come back to you. Some days are just like that.

  3. I frequently get "blogger's block" - but at least you managed to tell us about something and post a photo. A

  4. You open the car door, get the elephant out, put the giraffe in, and close the door again.

  5. Oh, you did come up with a good story after all! When I have blogger's block, all I usually have to do is start typing, and something happens. Not always good writing, but hey, we can't have everything!

  6. There, you see? It's as they always say; if you have writer's block, just start writing. Anything at all. And something will come to you!

    That trip sounds worse than useless. OH would have said, 'there goes another 'x' number of hours of my life that I won't get back'. LOL!
