Water, Water, Everywhere...

For a guy with such a full social calendar, why do I feel so fuggin lonely? Plenty of family activities, plenty of platonic female company, plenty of projects on my plate. But the person I always shared it with... gone. I guess that's the real crux of it. I feel inspired to be creative and do all of these great things - but the results feel totally empty without that look of approval on Sam's face. And not just approval... Sam was my biggest fan and my second-harshest critic. I couldn't bullshit her because she knew all my little tricks. She got me. So by running my projects through the Sam filter, I knew I'd always be kept artistically honest. I think I'm doing good work now, but it's missing the Sam filter, so I feel deep down it's somehow inferior. It probably isn't, but I'm missing my muse, so everything feels that much... less.

Ugh. GAWD. You know, we both hated crap cereal like that. However the review of the cereal is ball-bouncingly funny.
