Who Me, Think?

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!"

I think, therefore I'm damned.
I'm pink, therefore I'm Spam.

No matter how you put it, thinking is tough. It taxes the brain.

Take last night, for intance. I was trying to think of a witty pun for "a mind is a terrible thing to waste." Whoa. I put my best faeries on that one! Here's the feeble effort:

(drum roll)

"A blind is a wearable thing in haste."

All this is my way of humbly thanking Rosie, my sister in goathood, for nominating me for a "Thinking Blogger" award.

I am, in turn, supposed to choose five favorite blogs that make me think. Ah, but here's the rub. All the blogs I read make me think. In fact, everything I read makes me think. Even road signs. (Especially road signs.)

I've been known to become consumed by the charts eye doctors use to measure your vision. Imagine how I feel about the fascinating writers in my sidebar!

And, sorry to say, as good as they all are, when I'm in the mood to bend my brain to the max, I click straight to the Turkey Vulture Society (also in sidebar). This not only feeds the neurons, it inflames the passions.

On the other hand, can't resist the cheesiest meme. So, here are five (not the only five) blogs that make me think.

1. Wandering Hillbilly.
2. Hecate.
3. Jesus' General. (Okay, that one makes me laugh.)
4. The Wild Hunt.
5. See, I couldn't even get to five! How do I insult the Wombat, or Tennessee Jed, two hard-working, thoughtful guys on opposite ends of the globe?
As you know, one thing I don't think about is how computers work. So, if your name is on the above list, you might want to link to Rosie to find out how to claim your prize. (I hear it's a can of Spam.)

That's it for me. Disengage brain. Store at room temperature.

The Gods Are Bored is one of my favourite places to visit.

Yes, there's a lot of thought going on here- and frequently some very incisive insights into human beings.

I second that 'Thinking Blogger' award.

God should get one too, though.

Love,Terri in Joburg

I just love the way you think Anne! I am glad you were listed as a thinking blogger because you are. Thanks for thinking of me in this post as well. I had got one on Cup of Joe Powell, in which I am very late in doing my part. You and Buddy Don would have topped my list anyway.

Are you, by any chance, hyperlexic?

(I learned how to read before I was 2 by watching TV commercials and reading road signs. And I quote, "Look, Mama, that says EXXON!" Hey, it's Louisiana, they own us.)

At any rate, I'm still very easily distracted by road signs, bumperstickers, graffiti, t-shirts, anything with words/letters on it. My brain works differently, and somewhat like an autistic brain, only with a different capacity for verbal expression. Took me YEARS to be able to speak in front of more than 2 people.

It would be very cool if I had found another adult hyperlexic --- you see a lot of mommy blogs about child hyperlexics, but nothing about the experiences of adults.
