Nothing to Say, But That’s Never Stopped Me Before

This is inspired by a post by _katiekaboom_, who also had nothing to say.

I’m feeling “blah” today–one of those days where I have a general internal weariness, but nothing specific. I’m also feeling cold, even though my office is the same temperature as usual. This could be related to what passes for winter finally starting to hit LA. I know folks back east will laugh, but we’re getting down to the 40s overnight.

So, I’ve had the urge to do an LJ post. Normally, when this happens, I do observations on the news. But so far, aside from one item I’m posting separately, there isn’t much there. Sure, I could write up something on the real estate market and its cooldown, but then again, it may not be cooling down as much as thought, especially when seasonal adjustments are taken into play. What appears to be happening are that sales are slowing, but prices continuing to rise, albeit at a lower rate. However, prices are dropping in some areas, so this is just too depressing. I could write about interest rates, but the news is just depressing, as I currently have an option ARM, and am trying to time when to re-fi. So… not that much I want to explore in the news.

I could look at the obituaries. After all, one of the creators of the Berenstain Bears just died. Jocelyn Brando, the sister of Marlon Brando, also just died. Pat Morita died a few days ago, but did you know that the Karate Kid will speak at his funeral? Still, it’s too depressing, especially after the recent death of a close family friend over the weekend.

I could do a meme, perhaps. But none of them are that interesting. I see no point in determining what Discworld character I am, since I don’t know Discworld. I could learn what pattern I am, but I would likely end up as polka dots, checks and stripes. I could create my own world map, but I really haven’t travelled all that much outside the US. I could ask people to post a fictional memory of me, but with the way my head has been, I’d likely believe it to be true (or wish it was). I could get a Unitarian Jihad name, but I’m Jewish… and I have no idea what a Changling Kith is.

I could play with icons. After all, there was a post on misc.transport.road that pointed to a cool sign generator and another custom sign generator. But when you have nothing to say, what good are these?

So, I guess I’ll just say nothing.
