Not Amused

I have to admit to being jealous of Jenna and Kate because they have Muses. It sounds so suave and sophisticated, doesn't it? What do I have? Wallpaper. Granted, it's Daniel Craig wallpaper, which is lovely to look at, but not quite the same thing as having a muse. Then I start to worry. What does it say about me that I don't have a muse? That I have never even imagined having one? Am I not worthy of the Muses' notice? Am I not creative enough to even come up with this idea on my own? I had an imaginary friend once when I was seven. It was a chipmunk, as I recall, or maybe a squirrel, and I did it simply to amuse my mother after she told me about my father's imaginary elephant. So I'm a faker. Is that creative enough, or just pretentious? Heck, I couldn't even get to sleep tonight for obsessing about my lack of muse. Something dragged me out of my prone position, forced me to grab my laptop and power it up and write this. huh. Maybe I do have a muse after all. . .

You are your own muse!

Elizabeth said...

And you have She-Ra the optimuse (and Pablo the pessimuse)! Did you ever see "The Muse"?

Seeleah said...

Btw, how do you know you don't have a muse??

Faltenin said...

Muses demand sacrifice. The best Muses make you cry.

You don't necessarily want a muse, candy girl...

Jenna Howard said...

No. No. Just say no to muses. They are pains in the arses. They make you cry, Fal is right. They make you want to smack them.

Don't name your muse if you have one. Don't do it. Don't find a picture. That's the path to darkness.

E - Oh NOW I get the Optimuse thing. Thank you! She-Ra never visits me. Doesn't your Muse have to actually visit you? (slathering on the guilt here - or at least trying to)

I dunno, Kitkat. I don't find myself very inspiring. I think muses are supposed to be inspiring.

She - if you check out Jenna and Kate's blogs, you'll see how I know. I couldn't miss an interactive episode like those.

Fal - maybe you're right. But don't they offer inspiration and creativity in exchange? Some days I could REALLY use that. Some days I have nothing.

Jenna - LOL! The Dark Side is powerful. Maybe it's what I need. . .

ygfaojs: not the name of my nonexistent muse

My imaginary friend was a monkey named curious george. How lame is that?

tshsmom said...

I don't have a muse either. :(
I CAN do the spoon on the nose thing though.
Fal may be right. I probably don't want a muse. How about a house elf?

Candace said...

LOL Jay! :o)

TS - a house elf would be splendid!! No S.P.E.W. for me, thanks!

Yunawm: You na WOMAN!
