Around the Block.

For the past year I have had a serious case of writers block...and I mean serious. Something must have happened to me to cause all the writing functions of my brain to totally shut down. Maybe I am subconsciously protecting myself from a traumatic experience...some cyberspace bullying perhaps. Maybe I have lost my funny. I used to have so many funny blog posts! I cracked myself up all the time...though I'm not really sure if anyone else understood my humor. I've also had my fair share of "outraged at the world we live in" posts. But somehow, despite all my adventures, I just don't feel as if I have anything to say. I'm not trying to be melodramatic, so please don't confuse this with depression. I'm not depressed, just at a loss for words. In 2012 I have only published 7 blog posts...most of them at the prompting of a formspring stalker (and I think even he [or she?] is beginning to give up on me).

Now, it's not that I haven't been trying, or even that I am never inspired! I have quite a few "drafts" saved...and they're all a little depressing.

Example 1
Blog Title: Roundabouts 
I seem to be the only human in this state that is capable of properly driving through a roundabout. I think that this is largely due to the fact that I seem to have a knack for going in circles...These unpopular intersections tend to send Arizonians into a state of confusion. Stop? Go? Exactly who has the right of way is a mystery...at least to the drivers who like shop at the Norterra shopping center.
Well, let me educate you. Roundabouts are not stop signs, keep going. Once you are in the circle, DON'T STOP. It's up to the entering cars to yield.    
Roundabout should not be confused with walkabouts.Noun:   A journey on foot undertaken by an Australian Aboriginal in order to live in the traditional manner.
perambulation - stroll

Example 2
Blog Untitled
Large Vanilla Iced Coffee.
Medium Iced Maple Leaf with an Extra Shot.
Small Iced White Mocha.
Small French Roast.
Large Iced Vanilla Americano with two sugars.
Large Low-Carb, Sugar-Free Caramel Avalanche with an Extra Shot.
Medium Vanilla Latte and a Chocolate Chip Muffin.
Soy Cappuccino with one and a half raw sugars.
Medium Nonfat Latte Extra Hot and a Large Iced Pomegranate Green Tea.
And the list goes on...

WHAT?! See what I mean? I literally have NOTHING to say.
So, for those of you who have even noticed my blogging absence, please understand...it's not personal. And while I highly doubt that anyone out there has any expectations of blogging entertainment from me, know that I do plan, in the near future to try to at least post about my last trip to Africa. I ought to at least be able to think of something to say about that!
