Blogger's Curse

Writer's block.

I've spent the morning trying to think up something fun to write. I try and keep this blog fairly light, you know, pics of cute boys, pop culture, yadda yadda. So far today I'm just not feeling it. The Muse hasn't whispered.

Oh nothing's wrong. It's just... well it's Hump Day, I slept badly last night so I'm a bit tired, I'm busy at work, it's an overcast sort of day, I have a bit of a tricky tummie today... Just a bit meh, you know.

On the topic of writing, I'm in the market for something to read so hit me up in the comments if you have any book suggestions!

[Updated: 5 hours later and so far the book chatter in the comments has been restricted to "The Bible" and "The Ultimate Guide to Fellatio". And THAT my friends, well that is just one of the reasons why I adore you all. Let's cuddle!]

Might I suggest The Bible?


The Other Andrew said...

Oh, they'd love that. I don't want them to feel like they've won!

(Anyhoo, read it. It didn't take.)

i think parts of the bible are some of the most beuatiful poetry going. Maybe not that whole "stone the queers" thing in Leviticus, but "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth away, but the word of God shall stand forever."

I was having a conversation the other day about the Bible and it went something like this...

When James I had it translated he really wanted to be a poet, so he only hired poets to translate.

Maybe that explains the poetry of the bible and the purely of the wall messages it gives.

Currently reading 'The Ultimate Guide to Fellatio' and finding it highly entertaining and informative.

The Other Andrew said...

Hey girlfriend, you want to know about fellatio - ask a gay man.

Because any book written by a gay man would be part instruction manual and part owner's handbook. There's a lot to be said for understanding both sides of the equation! :)

Michael Guy said...

Fellatio and the bible, folks, in the same comments section.

Just part of the reason I keep coming back.

Does anyone know what size shoe 'Adam' had? Is that noted in the bible anywhere?!

The Other Andrew said...

It descends pretty quickly 'round these parts, doesn't it. I know it's Reason #1 I keep coming back!

"As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste."

thombeau said...

Yay, John C!

I believe "The Time Traveler's Wife" has been recommended before, no?
Also "The Poisonwood Bible" (speaking of bibles!). I don't read a lot of fiction these days, but those are two novels that have stayed with me over the past decade. You owe it to yourself, kiddo!

Also, I should mention that I have been reading a lot of Gerald Murnane for Uni...his writing style takes a bit of getting used to but once you cracked it, it's well worth it.
