I’m not yet really comfortable with the new electronic readers. I use my iPad mostly for surfing and gaming. But last night after an attack of some kind of stomach flu, I found myself in bed with some time to surf books. That, to me, is the coolest use of my reading apps. I downloaded some samples and checked out some reading.I am an American Idol watcher and have been entertained by another 60+ year old wacky brain this season, so I checked out his new book. The sample was illuminating. It is written in the voice that is the noise in his head. Yikes. I recognized it right away. It is very similar to what I put up with in my own and the term “noise in my head” rocked me.
One of my friends told me a student of hers informed her that he was ADSSHD–Attention Deficent–Something Shiny!–you know the rest. Another great term. Anyway, I jump around a lot inside this head and it results in some fun things and a bunch of unfinished. However—after a certain amount of noise, productivity stops and guilt begins. The answer is to stop and focus and prioritize. It won’t last, but it helps.
I narrowed my blog reader list to 36 blogs. Hey, that’s down from 80+. A few are friends, a few are knitting, a few are art, and some quilting ones still remain. If I read too many, I get too many ideas, start too many projects, accomplish little except Protestant guilt.
I made some earrings.
and some other things
and took Evan school shopping where we bought a Shawn White hat.
Next–some knitting discoveries.
