NO I have not read that stupid book, ok well I guess I won’t call it stupid since I don’t know anything about it, but The Secret (touted by Grand Poobah Oprah) held no interest for me.
But I am going to trust you (yes you, reading my blog with your finger poised over the scroll-y button your mouse) with MY secret.
This is a good one, so if you USE THIS you owe me. You know where to find me.
Ok here goes…
If you find a genie here is the first thing you should wish for: Will Power.
Isn’t that just genius?!??! Ok I am now bowing and blushing to your applause.
If you use this idea the SECOND thing you have to wish for is for me to get a wish. And then I will wish for will power too. See? This is how the circle of bloggie trust works!
Clearly this is a very realistic premise, so I expect you to be taking me seriously. I am VERY serious about this and have puts lots of thought into it. Because you know what happens if you ask for the wrong wish from a Genie? Bad things that’s what! Like if you wish for the lost treasure of some ship wreck the genie might just whisk you there and leave you underwater with your new found wealth, to drown!(this happened in The Return of Jafar) There are RULES people, like what if you just wished to be skinny, and your wish backfired by making you look like a skeleton and you could never gain any weight?!
OK, so my wish idea is only a good wish if you don’t already have will power.
Which I don’t. Can you imagine how much you could ACCOMPLISH with will power!??
Exercise! Stop eating semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of dinner! Do work instead of twittering! Pay attention to your husband instead of reading just one more chapter! Put the book down at midnight instead of 2:30am on a work night! Don’t wait until the dog is crossing her legs she has to go out so bad to put down your current read!
So a lot of these are reading related.
Reading has taken over my life a bit. Because you see, the only thing I DO have will power about is finishing a book. I have almost NO DNF’s people. I always get to the end. One thing I hate, detest, despise and loathe is returning a book to the library or to a friend unread.
If a book is really scarey, horror filled making-me-feel-sick-to-my-stomach, or even just reeeeally boring then maybe I will put it down. But for the most part? I have plenty of will power to read all my library books before their due dates before moving on to the books I own. I feel too guilty returning a library book unread.
I just can’t do it. Is this will power? Or addiction?
