Cathy's been nagging nagging me (her words) that I haven't written anything in days. I'm just in one of these funks where not only can I not think of much to write about, but what I can think of seems kind of bland. I was going to do something on the municipal elections taking place in St. John's. But honestly, if I can't think of something fun to write about that, then why bother. There will be plenty of serious takes on that particular bit of madness. I'd like to be able to think of something funny to say.

So far, nada.

Although I will point out one thing - Wells was right about this much. His stepping down will likely cost $400,000 or more in elections. Not just the mayoral election; that's silly. But what with the cost of the mayor's election, deputy mayor's election and probably 2-3 councillor-at-large positions, well, that adds up in a hurry.

Someone mentioned why I was wasn't commenting n the Scotties in the previous post. Well, if you really insist...Newfoundland is off to a good start at 4-1. So I'm hopeful, because I really don't think Gushue is going to do squat at the Brier this year.

And now I must away to work. Hopefully something marginally amusing this evening.

Note: Of course, I misspelled doldrums in the headline because I was half awake when I jotted this off in a hurry this morning. It has since been corrected. The kinder among you just ignored it. Of course, all it takes is one abusive anonymous asshole to point our the mistake.

That comment has been deleted. As will all abusive anonymous comments.

I am new to blogging. For the past few years I have been writing letters to the editor, reading them and than throwing them in the trash.

The doldrums nail us all from time to time. A sense of why bother. I am sure you will be back to your witty self in no time flat. In the meantime, if you do not feel like posting,relax and get back at it when you feel like it.
