Your Suggestions Are Welcome!!

I've been whining for a while now about how I haven't been doing much in the way of actual writing over the past few months. I guess you could say that I'm whining right now (go ahead, say it!). I have to confess, folks, I'm at a loss. There's really not much that I feel like writing about right now. Yet I want to write something. I need to write something. Anything!

And so, gentle readers, in this most dire of circumstances, in my darkest hour, I'm reaching out to you. Yes, you. I beseech you, in the name of friendship and human decency (and before I start posting pictures of the soles of my shoes, or YouTube clips of old ABBA tunes, or..., well, you get the drift...)... I beseech you, kind readers, please help me!

I need your ideas, your suggestions for writing topics. No topic will be considered too difficult, too trivial, or too stupid. I will endeavor to write something about anything you care to suggest (if you think I'm just kidding about this, well then, just try me!).

Please leave your ideas/suggestions in the comments. My life is in your hands, dear readers, and I will do my best not to disappoint you!

  1. How about a guide to Canadian pronunciation of English? OK, we all know about "aboot" (as it were), but there must be other Canuck idiosyncracies... in fact, how about a guide to Canadio-Japanese pronunciation of English; your own must have been affected in your time in the land of the rising sun. Even better, how about some Canadian swearing?

  2. Pictures of shoe soles?! What a concept!

  3. But, seriously, when I'm at a loss over something to write about, I generally write about being at a loss over ... Oh. Never mind.

  4. 1. Tell America why a Canadian living in Japan thinks Obama should be president. We'll need that by first thing tomorrow, EST.

    2. Recall that 1 picture = 1000 words, to coin a phrase. There's nothing wrong with photoblogging for a while, especially with your eye.

    3. Don't force the muse, she only comes when you don't expect her.

    4. I'm sure as I post this, I'll actually come up with some useful suggestions. Meantime, I'm just checking in to let you know you're not alone.

  5. Tafkass and Brendan,
    You have spoken, and I have heard! And thanks for the encouragement, Brendan.

    1. Is that a challenge? Don't tempt me!
    2. Yeah, it's like the snake eating its tail...
