I got nothing. My brain is completely blank. I've been staring at this big white box of space for fifteen minutes now (thanks for the email distractions! I needed something to break the monotony).
Now, I'm not so stupid as to think that this experience is anything close to writer's block. I've had writer's block. For eight months while I was pregnant with Baby Girl. No matter how many times I'd sit my butt in front of my computer screen nothing would happen.
This is different, and yet close enough. There's this pressure to perform, to come up with something intelligent, witty, entertaining... Nope. Still nothing. Maybe later in the day inspiration will strike. For now, I'm going to throw out a couple things - discuss.
Nick Saban leaving Miami to come to Alabama has been a huge topic of conversation in our media today. Someone at my office made a comment today that stuck with me. She asked how Saban could trust Alabama or how Alabama could trust Saban. They've both broken contracts in the last few months, contracts that they both staunchly defended when they were originally signed (up until a couple weeks ago as well). My answer - they can't. But at least they both know what the other is in it for. As long as Alabama's winning Saban'll be okay. And as long as Saban's getting paid (and his wife is happy) Alabama'll be okay. Thoughts?
I've been pulling together information on Disney World over the last few weeks. We're taking the girls week after next. I've been several times in my life but not very recently. Anyone got some tips to share? Dos and Don'ts?
