Five Minutes inside My Head

So I've been stalking this person's blog for a while - Fadra, her name is.  I only know her from Twitter, and her blog when I actually go ahead &, you know, click the link.

So I've been stalking.  And she does this thing, Stream of Consciousness Sunday.  And I think to myself, I can do stream of consciousness.  Why don't I do more stream of consciousness? I  mean, isn't my blog Stream of Consciousness Day EVERY DAY?

This distracts me from Fadra's blog.  So, I stalk her for yet another week.

Today, I found myself stream-of-consciousness blogging all day long.  Fits & starts, beginning rants but never finishing them, thinking 'oooh this would be perfect for Stream of Consciousness Sunday, a post on a blog which I stalk but never comment on.  A little creepy, yes, to be crafting posts for imaginary friends?  Yes, yes it is creepy, in case you were hesitating there.

So tonight, I decided, I can do stream of consciousness.  But - stupid move - I made the tragical error of checking out other people's streams of consciousness before I typed out mine.  Clearly, there are people in the world who have much less polluted clogged up stagnant body-of-water streams than I.  My stream of consciousness is pretty much one of those estuaries coming straight out of the Purdue plant and directly into the Chesapeake Bay, all cram packed full of toxic chemicals and chicken feathers.

So.  There you have it:  my maiden voyage into the putrid, occluded stream of consciousness of NilsenLife.  Better luck next week chums.

Awww. You stalk me? That's so awesome! Thank you!!! And I often have some of the same stream of consciousness fears as you. My mind is weird and I think weird things. But fortunately, I go first.

I love that everyone is different. Some people simply recap their mundane tasks for the day. Others really pour their heart out. Me? I'm always a crapshoot.

And now, I can't wait to read what you'll write next week :)

Truth is that most of what you write is better than most of what I even think! You are so gifted and I love to "stalk" you and yours via FB, blog etc.

I started and stopped a few times too! But it is a great exercise to just write and not worry about making sense. I make sense all day at work; at home, it's good to let loose :-)

I love the stream of consciousness theme. Although I've been slacking the last couple of weeks and not done it. This week, I will. Rest assured, your contribution is superior in every way. You are, as always, so very eloquent. Can't wait to see more!

I don't know if I dare. I'm not sure I want others to have a peek into those places. I don't know if I want to unlock them...not sure I'd be able to reign them back in! No, seriously, may be fun to try!
