"As busy as a one-armed paper hanger!" I can't remember when or where I first heard this saying, but I've often thought it sure could have been said about me.
Today, I showed a new trainee the ropes and emailed another person about coming for her training shift tomorrow. I mailed approximately 15 monthly membership packages out, only to come home and get two more ready for the post. Intending to work on a commissioned painting of a Siamese cat tonight, I went to Curry's to buy art supplies. However, I decided to work on less exciting things, like organizing the database of my Dandy Card Members and update my finances.
Today, at Tim Horton's, I explained to Sarah how my mind works: like my body, it`s pretty much always in motion. Ideas, worries, memories, longing - and, yes, sometimes fantasies! Do I mean of a sexual nature? Sure, sometimes!
However, there are times when I fantasize about having my Cerebral Stimulator (it was implanted onto my cerebellum to lessen spasms when I was 18) being struck by lightning and suddenly having super powers. One of the powers I'd have would be the ability to take a person's suffering (physical/emotional) and put it onto the person(s) who caused it in the first place.
And then, I told Sarah about another fantasy I have. In my humble opinion, the writing on Coronation St. has been sub-standard for about maybe six months now. My dream is to kidnap the writers, put them on a desert island, and then write the episodes myself.
We laughed about this, of course, but then Sarah came up with a brilliant idea! I could write an episode (or episodes) for a show called Cat-ronation St and then put it on YouTube. We'd either use real cats, cat finger puppets - or both!
It sounds nutty, sure, but in my opinion, people like nutty.
Besides, I need another project to occupy my mind and time! I'm just not busy enough.
