Thursday Thoughts

Thought Bubble clip artI have a roving mind. Through the course of each week I tend to accumulate random wonderings in my mind, most of which never evolve into anything other than a niggling question that’s going to bother me until I 1) ask someone who knows or 2) go find the answer myself.

Thoughts lately:

1) Most people have a TBR pile. I have a TBR room. I have to wonder if I’ve got the lifespan to read all of them. Is there some kind of program I can use to figure out my reading rate, number of pages in each book, and my life expectancy?

2) When people tell me not to do something I’ve got to try it at least once to see if they’re right. Canning on a smooth stovetop? I got away with it… until last fall. I totally thought the sound of my stovetop cracking was a gunshot. In retrospect, my action of running towards the noise was not incredibly intelligent.

3) Actually, I have a long history of moving in the direction of perceived danger. I think it has something to do with my inability to handle anticipation. However, if the trend continues I imagine it will have an impact on my imaginative algorithm from Thought 1.
