Whips for breakfast?

The yogurt lid this morning said "Try our new WHIPS! yogurt." Being the messed-up person that I am, I saw just the first four words and wondered when on earth Yoplait turned into a sex company. Actually, that might help their business quite a bit considering America's all about the fast food and candy bars anyway. If we associate nutrition with something most people enjoy, they'll be all over it.

From experience, though, just know that Yoplait's whips aren't all they're cracked up to be. It's so thick and fluffy it's hardly yogurt.

On being unable to write

I've been unmotivated to write over the past couple of days, which is strange considering I'm writing a really long and interesting scene. I can't explain it, except that I'm barely at 2400 words after five days. What happened? Sure, I wrote this much in a day (and if I was lucky, in two hours) in November, but still. This is worse than writer's block. I know exactly what I'm going to write. I just don't want to write it. It's an unusual feeling.

At one point I thought that having nothing to do except write would be paradise. Unfortunately, once given the chance to do so, I find out that it's everything but. For one, my inspiration for writing comes from the world around me. When my environment never changes, when my daily life never changes, when I get stuck in a rut, so does my writing. I think this same rut explains why I am significantly more boring than usual when there's no change in my life--there's nothing new to talk about. It's time to change that.

I think this is why writing is so difficult for me right now.

On the bright side, I have completed embodiment every day so far. Go me.
