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.
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?
