Ten Day Meme: Day Four

Stolen from clionona ....

Day One:  Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.
Day Ten: One confession.

Day Four:  Seven things that cross your mind a lot.

1)  Sex.  I got hormones.  I got needs.

2)  The world and my lack of place in it.  It's still turning, baby.  And those of us who were quite happy with where it was are now either trying to catch up with it again or being left behind.  But we can't be what we were.  We never can.

3)  I said sex, right?  * scrolls up * Oh, yeah.  Okay, another thing that crosses my mind a lot?  Jokes.  Sometimes an idea for a joke will hit me and I'm scrambling to write it down and which characters I've created would be likely to say it so I can expound on it later.  Or remember old jokes that make me laugh.  I'm frequently smiling like I'm in on some private joke.  It's because I remember something like a classic Mel Brooks bit or a routine from MXC or something and enjoying what it triggers.

4)  Mermaids.  My personal progress.  I often wonder how I'm doing in my quest for enlightenment.  Remember, I'm a professional storyteller.  I spend a lot of time figuring out if something is Truth and if I'm just telling myself a private fairy tale.

5)  Sex.  Oops.  Sorry.  Human nature.  Which I guess ties in with #4, only reflecting the world in general instead of me specifically.  Sometimes it's just marveling at the wonderful qualities of humanity, other times it's searching for some shred of hope that mankind is not some colossal failure that hasn't shut down yet, and is there any hope.

6)  Stories.  It doesn't take much for me to start hashing out, say, the layouts for the next comic I draw or the script or anything.  My brain is always working on something constructive.

7)  Sex.

There you go, seven things.  And I didn't think of mermaids once.  :-P

Nope. No mermaid sex. Never even crossed my mind....

Well, there are practical difficulties with the concept, after all ...

You are too clever!

...other times it's searching for some shred of hope that mankind is not some colossal failure that hasn't shut down yet, and is there any hope.

Sometimes I find myself searching for that, too.

Search every day until you find your answer.

It's what I'm doing right now....

I think you forgot to mention sex...

Whoa, you're right! How did I miss that?!?
