Twiddling of Thumbs

Thumb twiddling is an activity that is done with the hands of an individual whereby the fingers are interlocked and the thumbs circle around a common focal point, usually in the middle of the distance between the two thumbs (duh?). Thumb twiddling is frequently used as an example of a useless, time-wasting activity.

And that's what I'm doing today folks. Wasting time (or dalliance, dawdling, trifling) is something that I am somewhat unaccustomed to. Don't get me wrong, I have spent many an hour reading through old blogs, but ever since Deb changed Smitten Newlywed to Smitten Kitchen I haven't been quite as interested. I like cooking and all, but she makes things that I can't even pronounce, which means that I have no business cooking those things.

But that's besides the point. What is the point you ask? Well, good question. Today I'm writing just for the hell of it. Nothing terribly exciting happened this week. Well, I guess that's only a little true. Yesterday was my birthday. Whoop. I do like my birthday though. It's a day all about me - maybe not in reality, but in my reality it is. Reality is only what you make of it anyway.

I haven't really felt like writing lately. I can't come up with a good premise for my blog. Every blog needs a purpose, right? Well, mine doesn't have one. I was trying to choose between a few different topics (i.e. diet and fitness, relationships, travel, restaurants) and then I realized that while I may be somewhat knowledgeable in several areas, I am the master of none.

Suggestions? I was thinking of maybe doing one on restaurants in different places I've traveled. Maybe I'll even give some recipes for global cuisine. I don't know. I'll get back to you on that.
