064: A PUMPKIN-ESQUE EXPERIENCE
Out on a smoko just now, obsessing yet again about the looming threat of Christmas.com.
I've advised Lollie of my intention to be a vegetable today. A turnip, or some sort of pumpkin. I'm going to remain orange and motionless. Turns out my horoscope supports my vegetable intentions, check it out:
Charm and grace will get you everything you want today so you don't need to struggle too hard by using arguments or any other clever facts. Simply be yourself and let that charm work for you.
In short: I'm great.
This is kinda good to hear following a socially disastrous weekend choc full of 'meh'. You see I've been struck by inspiration, and I may have just found a way out of this sea of boredom I've been sailing for the last year or so.
I'm fairly certain I'm fast approaching the end of this incarnation of me.
I guess that sounds kinda abstract. But you know when people change in their lives, it often happens suddenly, appearing as though they have morphed into an amalgam of what they were, and what they are now.
It's a feeling of having mastered a skill or an art form. Being able to do it without even thinking. Sort of like driving. You're still thinking when you're on the road, but it's not a self conscious 'hands gripping the steering wheel' type of thinking.
Having said that, my life feels the same way. Some may even use the word 'complacent' or 'comfortable'. These are two things which have always proven quite damaging to my life. They're like blood on brain tissue!
Being this guy isn't easy, but I think I've done all I can do. It's sort of like a character in a story who eventually runs out of stories (Anyone remember poor ol' Kes from Star Trek Voyager?).
So obviously you have to take your character and force him in a new direction, and into an environment which will allow for interesting plotlines, danger, excitement, exotic recurring characters and sex.
So that's me right there. And the good news is I have an idea. An idea that I'm thinking about thinking. And something I'm not quite ready to talk about yet.
But I have an idea.

I like this - made me think of you morphing from a prince to a pumpkin, albeit a very spunky punky -
Having an idea is smashing, pumpkin, really - here's hoping you implement and it all goes wonderfully well for you. :)
