Tetris Brain and Teaspoons

Do you remember years ago, when you played too much Tetris, how your brain went into this weird automatic setting where you couldn’t quite focus on anything without part of your brain planning where to drop a T if you got one, or an L? Brick walls, tiles- especially problematic. (If you don’t know what I mean, congratulations on not wasting your life. It’s still a struggle. Have you seen Spider Solitaire?)

Well, it’s not as bad as that, but blogging jumps into my head at random times, often in the middle of the night, and tries to plan what to say about…

Well, nothing, really.

And teaspoons.

I just found this amazing bit of simplicity combined with brilliance, on a blog I’m loving- Like Mother, Like Daughter. (Hey, look, a link!)

Leila suggested this, paraphrased by me- every time you need to add a teaspoon of something dry, while cooking, measure it out, then tip in your palm and throw it in from there. Super easy, and sooner or later you’ll be so used to what a teaspoonful looks like, you’ll be able to cook without having to root around in the  awful drawer for the stupid teaspoon measure! Genius!

So, does the blogging brain thing last?

    hello- can’t find how to email you directly, so i hope you’ll see this here. i have never met anyone in real life via the internet, but here goes. i’m heather who commented on farmama’s blog recently. you noticed i live in london and had read radical homemakers and said maybe we should have coffee sometime. i get to cheat bc you have a blog and i don’t. sorry, but i just read your posts, bc they are there. 🙂 i was wowed by your saying you think you will probably home educate- i do- for our 2 daughters- who are older than your son- 8 and14- ouch- but you and i are very close in age. i know that is a very foreign idea in this country and has made me feel very alone here. then even more stunning- we live in the same city! well i had to say hello- hopefully you can get my email from here. i look forward to hearing from you and maybe getting to chat!
