I've lost it

I wonder if I'll ever find it again.

All great artists go through this from time to time, I imagine. I have lost my muse. You folks probably noticed it before I did. Even AdSense has noticed it. But I just realized that my blog sucks. It didn't always suck. I think Thanksgiving, for instance, was a work of art. But not much since then is any good. I'm trying to figure out why this is. I believe I have the answer:

I'm not angry. I'm not depressed. I'm not even tired. I'm actually happy. It's bizarre. I'm not sure it has ever happened to me before in the dead of winter, but there it is. I am content. I have nothing to complain about. Nothing to worry about. I don't know what to make of it.

I think the thin air must be getting to my brain, and I'm starting to lose my mind.

Maybe someone will barf soon.

contentment can make you somewhat lazy...it's ok you'll be pissed or hacked off soon enough.
for now just enjoy and be mellow...

or the snow has freezed your brain.

your blog doesn't suck. i think you may be suffering from seasonal affectivness disorder. sun lamps help.

Yeah - a sun lamp could get you all grouchy because you would feel all summery but you can't ride your tractor because there's 3 feet of snow on the ground.

You can always stick your finger down your throat.

"I'm actually happy. . . . I am content".
I do not recall ever being so concerned, almost scared, since I started reading your blog.

Yep, your blog does suck lately.
We did notice it a while ago, but due to our sweet gentle nature (and because we don't want to plagiarize you...), we did not point it out.

Happens.
(and your little sting about great artists who also go through it, was not missed, thankyouverymuch).

You can always go dust a computer or burn a laptop.

Or, just go buy a Dell.

That'll get you angry.

...and I was hoping that my, Hmm, constructive comment would make you angry enough to re-blog, or at least go for some responsive hate-comments.
Nothing, Eh?

You must really be happy.
That is getting very concerning!

And I can't help wondering:
Is IMing The JohnnyB about reloing, aimed at bringing the pain closer to your neighborhood?

Hey - and your Adsense is back with real ads.
Perhaps it's a sign.
