July ideas

I think it’s the heat.

It was in July 2010 that “best sexy post ever by lisleman” was posted on a brand new idea of a blog called “I Can’t Blog”.  This secondary back alley blog is still around. It gets no respect.


I can’t blog


I have ideas all year round. For reasons unknown to me, in July they surprise me like the thunderclap of a July storm. In fact I didn’t notice this idea birthing trend until I was looking over my past blog posts. (does this imply that I was idea pregnant the first half of the year?)

My restaurant idea came to me during July. Get your Fat Ass Donuts at Lisleman’s Sitdown Eat This and Like It restaurant. Oh the potential money I could blow in July.

July 2011 rolls in on a heat wave and I post my idea of a pedicure conspiracy. codename tow truck

Also in July 2011, I introduced my meme idea - LLL (Lisleman’s Left-over Laughs).



July of last year put me on a road trip. Don’t know if the rubble of the road rattled my brain a bit too much. After my trip another loopy idea circled my mind. Post an altered picture of Sheryl Crow kissing a picture of Lisleman. The objective of this was to get Sheryl’s attention. Given my luck I probably didn’t answer her call thinking it was a telemarketer.


Off the top of my head, I can’t pin down the reason the bountiful crop of ideas in July. Perhaps there is a rhythmic cycle of thought rocking in my brain. Since I exhibit little to no rhythm in any other parts of my life, I think it’s the heat. 

What's your best time for ideas?

Hehehe ... any ideas are welcome. anytime i'm sure ... too bad about missing Cheryl's call ... we don't get hassled by telemarketers here ...

Or my mother's favorite could be your restaurant's name: Don't taste it, just eat it.

Funny how ideas come to us for blogs. I seem to have lot's of ideas but then can't come up with a decent blog that would be of interest to anyone.

Lately, the idea pot is low at the Gumbo Blog. Usually, my ideas runneth over in the early morning, but lately I am using that time for exercise, prayer and getting better prepared for my day of work. Maybe I will take a sabbatical soon. It's a definite possibility. I will have more ideas then I think. By the way, I love Crow's songs.

Now that's benefit of living in Namibia - no telemarketers. Hope there are none reading our comments. thanks

I think the last thing a cook wants to here is a complaint. thanks

lisleman said...

With all the great observations you make on the news I would suspect you have some good theories going related to odd crimes and/or people. thanks

lisleman said...

So if you take a sabbatical you'll blog more or less? Is retirement like the big sabbatical over the hill? You daily preparations are much more rigorous than anything I do now. thanks

Hmmm. The only theme in my blog is my son's hockey and (of course) Adam Levine. …perhaps they are obsessions, not themes….
As far at the best time for ideas, I think is when I have my camera in my hand. I tend to take more photos and think "This would be a great blog post". =)

lisleman said...

a good pic and a good background story make a great post. Have you seen Adam Levine in concert? I don't even know if he still does concerts but his group was a big hit right. Maroon I think. If that's it (I could check easily enough but like to guess at times) then that's a funny name because all these women would like to be marooned with him. thanks

Probably the heat...but I also like your suggestion of a gestational period for ideas!

lisleman said...

oh I can feel an idea kicking! thanks

My best ideas come to me in the shower or while driving. Never when I can write them down.

I'd definitely eat a Fat Ass Donut.

lisleman said...

Oh I agree about the shower. I wonder if any company installed showers to help employees come up with ideas. Of course a home shower is more relaxing unless someone else flushes while you're in there. thanks I'll save you a donut
