Two for one...

I missed posting yesterday.  I don’t have an excuse, I just forgot until suddenly it was 11:30 PM.  I was out at a club at the time and there just was not any way I was going to make it back to my apartment, write a blog and post it before midnight.  So, today I’m writing two posts to make up for it.  The Great Hairball Incident was post number one and now, guess what?  It’s 11:30 PM and I’ve not written my second post.  This time I am at home, watching Hulu and working on a costume for a show I’m in next weekend.  The only problem is that I’m totally drawing a blank on what to write about.

But do not fear dear readers for the folks at NaBloPoMo are prepared for such things.  Since they assume we may one day during our 30 days of writing suffer from a case of blogger’s block they are kind enough to provide some prompts during the week.  I’m making use of this handy feature…

Friday’s blog prompt (apparently they assume that blogger’s block takes the weekend off so they only provide prompts on weekdays):

“Talk about one important thing that happened between last Friday and today.”

It is difficult to choose one important thing because a lot of important stuff happened this week. Not only that but I’m down to 21 minutes to get this written and posted before it becomes Sunday and then I will still technically be a day behind in my blogging.  And besides, how to decide what important thing to write about?  I mean, I woke up every morning and I still existed.  THAT’s pretty darn important right?

Today the alarm clock went off promptly at 6:30, it only took me a moment to realize I wasn’t dead.

Of course I am being a little self centered about this.   It doesn’t say talk about something important that happened in your life between last Friday and today.  No.  It says just something important.  Which of course blows my options WIDE open.

Today the alarm clock went off promptly at 6:30, it only took me a moment to realize that I wasn’t dead and that the world still existed.

I suppose this is a pretty important thing too. Knowing that the sun will rise and set each day is rather reassuring when it comes to thinking about life, goals and lunch plans for the next week.   Waking up and realizing that you are still breathing means that you just might be around for the next time the sun comes up. 

So that is it then.  The important thing that happened this past week is that I’m alive and well. Hopefully, the same goes for all of you too.
