Tootie the Zombie Brain

First off, I would like you all to know that I am typing all of this with an Irish accent. It’s just one of those days.

The other day was another one of those days. Of the zombie brain variety, not the Irish accent kind. These are the days when the sane, logical part of my brain (Bergerac) goes off somewhere, leaving the not so sane, completely illogical part of my brain (Tootie) behind the wheel, which in turn brings on the condition I call Zombie Brain.

For the most part, my chromosomes have combined beautifully (hey, if I don’t toot my own horn, who’s gonna do it for me, eh?), but Zombie Brain will be the end of me one day.

There I was, in the kitchen, fixing myself a cup of coffee. At least that’s what I would have done, had I had enough brain activity in my head to put coffee in the machine. I was watching the clear liquid fill in the pot, all the while feeling like something was a bit off. I poured it into my cup. I added sweetener, cream and stirred it with a little teaspoon. I didn’t notice my mistake until after I’d taken the first sip…

I then decided to get some work done on my nemesis: The Thesis. I turned my computer on and then Tootie decided to just switch all the systems off. It was the mother of all space-outs. Suddenly an hour had passed and I swear I had done nothing but stare into space.

Maybe I should try wearing an ice bag on my head while I work, or something.

Or maybe you should make sure you've been awake 5 or 6 hours before attempting anything at all.

Dear god, no! Not Tootie!?! Noooooo!!! We're all doomed!

on the plus side, Tootie didn't start an international incident so keeping her zombified might be the best way to go.

If it helps at all, I've done dumber stuff with coffee machines. I don't really get where all the things--like coffee and water--go.

No wonder your brain couldn't engage for thesis writing. You needed caffeine!

Alex - you're almost the biggest dramaqueen I know of. Almost.

Celia - yeah, cause you weren't gonna do that before, right?

Hagelrat - that's cause tootie hasn't been getting enough coffee lately.

Jocelyn - yes! It's the lack of coffee's fault. It's not cause I have no work disipline, or anything like that.

Anonymous - ...

Jeaux - yeshir!

Jazz - I do try to live by that rule. Course it gets a bit hard when I have to go to work in the morning, but still... I do try.
