Writer’s Block: All The Things I’m Not Interested In Writing About

As I write this, it’s 2:09 AM and once again, I’ve been hit with writer’s block.

— Terri Schiavo? I’ve hit her killing as hard and as often as anything I’ve ever discussed on this blog and I’m not sure that there’s much more to say at least for the moment.

— The Pope? I’m not Catholic, he’s not American, and while I do think some of the MSM coverage is kind of silly, especially polling Catholics about what sort of positions they want the new Pope to take, as if the Holy Father were a politician. It’s not worth doing a whole post on the subject.

— The Democratic Underground has gotten really dull lately, perhaps because the moderators have gotten on a deletion happy in response to conservative websites and radio shows regularly bringing their looney opinions to light. I’ve gone into posts, thought “This one has real potential,” and have come back a few hours later to find half the posts gone deleted by the mods. So those waters may be overfished for the moment.

Captain’s Quarters is covering some scandal it’s illegal for Canadian papers to talk about which is pretty nifty, but let’s face it, that’s a pretty dry topic unless you’re a Canuck, eh.

— By the way, I switched over to Vonage to save some dough and so far, so good. It’s $25 a month for unlimited calling and by the time I get all the rebates back for the $59 phone adapter I had to buy to get it to work, the adapter will be free. Oh, but I had one heck of a time getting TiVo to download updates on it. It took a lot of patience and a lot of configuring. But, this isn’t Slashdot. Heck, Slashdot isn’t Slashdot anymore.

— And….aww, forget it. It’s now 2:45 AM and I just spent all that time writing this post about having nothing to write about and watching a truly lame Twilight Zone episode about a bunch of weirdos stuck in a cylinder.

I’m heading to bed and early tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be rested, ready, and hopefully there will be some more breaking news. And if not, I’ll cook something up.
