Keeping it in perspective
Thursday, January 17, 2008
It comes in really handy when the first thought that enters your head when reading an email is "What's wrong with you?" Sometimes it's best to step away from the keyboard. Especially when the writing is being problematic at best and the ability to conjugate verbs is at an all-time low.

As for me, I do the whole "How will I feel about this five years from now?" determination. It turns out that most of the stuff I spend hours/days/months worrying about doesn't add up to a hill of beans, with or without Humphrey Bogart being involved.
Another handy trick, borrowed from Clay Aiken and shaken up, is the good-old WWMD, which stands for What Would Madonna Do?
It kind of removes any limits, dontcha think? And no, I'm too worried about Zaphod at the vet's today to do any parody writing right now. Maybe next week.
What about you? How do you keep things real?
