Writer's block and the way my brain works...

I am sorry.  I am having a little writer's block.

Perhaps P90X is having a hard time finding muscle-power, and has crept into my brain.  Sorry to disappoint you, Tony, but there is not much there, either.

No, there is a lot in my brain.  The problem is that it is full of useless information, like old telephone numbers, television theme music, and the price of clothing I sold over a decade ago (with and without tax). The names of every breed of dog, the pricing of Mini Cooper packages from 2006, and large excerpts of childhood movies junk up my brain so generously, that it is hard at times to make room for anything else.

Where are my keys?

Where are my flip flops?

"Hi!  I'll be with you in just a minute," gasping as I realize I did not (once again) write an appointment down.

As you may imagine, my brain is a scary and yet fascinating place.  As I picture it, my thoughts have a hard time getting from one locale to another, as something like the lyrics from a children's Christmas play solo from 1989 is laying in the middle of the normal path, like a large tree that fell in a storm.  In order for synapses to meet, they have to move around the "tree," charting a new course; and inevitably causing me to say or do something others consider creative (or strange).

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Blackberry Curd= Creative
This whole rant about synapses and trees in the road= Strange

Regardless, look-y-here.  I wrote something!  I blogged.

ANYWAY, about two months ago, I got rid of my personal website for a number of reasons.  I was using a template-based site that really did not look like me, so I sold it off to someone else.  Yesterday I finally built a new one, and I really do think you should check it out. 

I have to admit, I am really happy with it.

I will finish this post with some pictures of cupcakes, as that is why you are here, anyway.

This is a Chocolate Mint Cupcake with Peppermint White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting (breathe!).

I made a dozen of these plus a cake last week, and they are (were) simply divine!

I will type out the recipe tomorrow, as some little one is desperate to watch "Little Einsteins," or "Steins" as he calls it.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
