At the moment, Cindy's brain is on holiday. Sometimes it goes on holiday for no reason at all, despite the fact that Cindy's body is at work, writing. With a little luck, her brain will return in no time at all, with a thought or two that's worth reading.
But, she makes no guarantees.
(And while you're waiting for Cindy's brain to return, here's a cute video to watch about doggy noses at piersend.com.)
My brain is totally devoid of thoughts at the moment. What do you think ... is it because of pollution in the air ... radioactive elements bombarding my brain ... acid rain?
No, it's probably something more insidious. Like the big breakfast I had of bacon, potatoes, eggs, toast, donut, apple juice and milk.
Oh, okay, I'll tell the truth. I only had the bacon, potatoes and apple juice. But ... if there'd been donuts around, I definitely would've had that, too.
Aaah yes. Donuts. The breakfast of champions! (Or maybe the Destroyer of Brain Cells.)
Christmas is almost here. In two weeks it will be Christmas Eve. Wowzers, how'd that happen? At any rate, it's time for a Christmas story, and to whet your taste buds ... er ... reading buds, here are the first two paragraphs of a story that I know you'll enjoy!Officer Mack Olson jerked the steering wheel hard, barely avoiding a slide onto the graveled shoulder. The icy December air whistled in his ears, but he couldn't do anything about it. "Attending my own funeral isn't my idea of a good Christmas," he muttered, resisting the urge to take one hand off the wheel to roll up the window. "It's a shame this joker blew the red light before I had a chance to grab my double-bacon-cheeseburger from the kid at the drive-up window."
The stolen Dodge Intrepid in front of him careened onto Bangerter Highway, narrowly missing a semi-truck in the right lane. "Idiot!" Mack accelerated and tried to catch up, his foot pushing hard on the gas as the Intrepid swung in front of an SUV. Then a hand flashed out the window of the stolen car...

There's something about the actress, Emma Watson, that I really like. She started acting so young, and is very gifted. In fact, I have to say that of all the Harry Potter movie characters, Hermione, is my favorite. Watson plays her exactly right, and with any other actress, the character would probably come across as insufferable.
If you happen to be an Emma Watson fan and haven't heard the latest news, Watson will be starring in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Watson was seen in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where production has started for the movie. She's sporting a short haircut reminiscent of the 60s, and there are some dynamite candid photos from on-set. (Tidbit: Flowing, mauve skirt.) For more info, including a link to those pictures, CLICK HERE.
Oh my gosh, I can't believe how long it's been since I left a thought here. Time flies like an arrow ... and fruit flies like a banana!
So, as penance for not being on the ball, here's a link for a short haiku poem that will warm the cockles of your heart:
