Blue, Inception, and Cookie Dough

I've not gotten much sleep the past several nights and it shows, in my writing, a lot. I seem to have lost most of my ability to write anything serious. I was bored/stuck in my novel, because it needed serious writing, so I had my characters transported to a place with video-game-like mountains, blue dirt, and a person pushing a cart playing The Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack. I'm not sure if it's real, like another planet or a man-made place in the middle of nowhere, or if it's a virtual reality.

If I were writing a novel I was going to try to get published or let anyone read, I would wait until my head straightened out, but it's SuNo. I can't stop. So I improvise. I have 32,031 words so far.

I saw Inception this morning. I wasn't much into it until about halfway through and then I loved it. The concept is fascinating. Minds are fascinating. So my mind really liked it. It's an interesting movie. I feel like I was just rather redundant there but in case you haven't realized it, my mind isn't functioning normally right now, so please excuse me. The overdose of sugar doesn't help. It's been people's birthdays and they bought a lot of ice cream. For the record, Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream is very tasty. The cookie dough lumps are the size of a small eyeball.

Which could be many sizes depending on how small the eyeball. But they're bigger than all the cookie dough lumps in all the other brands of cookie dough ice cream I have ever eaten, so far as I recall.

And no, I don't recall how many brands I have tasted. I don't pay much attention to that sort of thing.

I'm not sure what a brand tastes like, anyway. I'd imagine sort of burnt and skinny, with a hint of metal.

I'm reading Hood. It's good.
