    LAZY DAY 

    This post marks the second mile, as the frog jumps (or as the crow flies, if you’re a traditionalist), on my post-every-five-days trial run, and already the timetable is beginning to seem unnatural and formulaic — not unlike having sex on a rigid schedule, instead of spontaneously (although there is something to be said for libidinal regularity, if you can keep it up).

    At any rate, a palpable angst is creeping over me, as if I’m a character in a Woody Allen film, torn between conflicted and competing neuroses. Not exactly the optimum scenario for a writer of my non compos mentis….or for a Casanova wannabe, for that matter.

    Be that as it may or may not be, now is not the time to dwell on second thoughts, ere this noble experiment hath run its allotted August course. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their…. Oops! Wrong speech!

    Anyway, as you’ll recall from my August 5 post, August 10 is LAZY DAY, so my duty today is clear: punt, get out of the way, and let Lazy have its day….and then some:

    P.S. Although Kermit the Frog said time’s fun when you’re having flies, he probably never had to eat crow flies….and he’s too slow to catch horseflies.

        If I weren’t so lazy today, I could’ve posted at least 3 more such clips: LAZYBONES, LAZY MOOD and LAZY RIVER – all “oldies but goodies” (just like me – ha ha).

      Well, I had planned to do as little as possible today, but that little is turning out to be a lot, so I don’t know if your post has its usual comforting qualities for me, Sr. Muse. I would make a resolution to be less productive in the future, except that also seems like taking on another obligation.

      Sounds like the old Catch 22, Ricardo. Good luck.

      I know you’re a big Barbra Streisand fan, Michaeline, so when I came across her LAZY AFTERNOON clip, I thought, “This Barb’s for you!”

      Watched the clip on YouTube, Don, and I remember the song well. It’s a rather lightweight tune, but perfect for the season….and Nat King Cole is always a pleasure to listen to.

      I wish I’d been more lazy on lazy day. It’ll be interesting to see how your new schedule goes.

      Thanks. I’m already beginning to give some thought as to whether I want to continue the schedule beyond August.

      Great selection of tunes! Spanky takes me back to puberty. I know it’s hard to write on a schedule for me. Inspiration isn’t usually that clockwork and life gets in the way! Good luck to you!

      I’m finding that a schedule isn’t an inspiration-blocker for me, though it probably would be if I waited until the last minute to come up with an idea of what I wanted to write about. I start thinking about the next post a few days in advance and write a rough draft ahead of time, so I can polish it at my leisure.

      Thanks for commenting.

    SLOW MUSE DAY 

    In the journalism business, a slow news day is (as defined by Wiktionary.com) “a time when media organizations publish trivial stories due to lack of more substantial topics.” I know that Tabloids have no such problem, but your local paper probably has had to resort to the likes of these on occasion:

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/babymantis/15-reasons-it-must-have-been-a-slow-news-day (if it comes up Page Not Found, click where it says  “Search” – then click the blue “15 Reasons Why It Must Have Been A Slow News Day”)

    Not to be outdone by the Tabs or the locals, your trusty Muse has gone to untold investigative lengths, spared no expense and left no stone unturned to bring you the following June 4th happenings:

    Today is Old Maids Day.

    Giacomo Casanova died on this day in 1798.

    Roquefort Cheese was created in cave near Roquefort, France, in 1070.

    The weather forecast for today is what it is.

    Ruth Westheimer (Dr. Ruth), SEX therapist, was born on this day in 1928.

    Today is Hug Your Cat Day.

    Monkees awarded Emmy for outstanding comedy series on this day in 1967.

    PETA protests Emmy award for outstanding comedy series on this night in 1967.

    Billy Crystal and Janice Goldfinger wed June 4, 1970, celebrate Silver Anniversary June 4, 1995. 

    June 4 hedging-your-bets Horoscope: There are few times that you can recall being lost for words. Your sociability and warmth make you a valued friend.

    I had a few more, but I forget what I was going to say.

    Your Valued Friend,

      When I first posted this, I failed to provide full directions for getting to the link mentioned in the second paragraph – I have now done so (in parenthesis after the link).

      Muse I left a comment here or so I thought. It was funny but I forget what it was. Maybe it was so slow a news day that the comment took a break too.

      Don, your lost comment ranks right up there with the hat in the tree found by the woman in the first of the “15 Reasons Why It Must Have Been A Slow News Day” – it’ll probably be found in the most unexpected place, and when it is, I hope it gets reported, because I’m sure it’s a lot funnier than this reply.
