I have a notebook next to my bed.
I used it once to write down this really great idea that was keeping me up. When I revisited it to flesh it out I realized it sucked. Actually that's happened twice that I can remember.
It may have happened more times than that but I haven't kept track of good ideas that actually sucked in the notebook I bought for that purpose. It's a bad habit.
Then the other night I had a really good idea for a post. It involved an extended metaphor wherein I drew a parallel between Dr. Doom and someone else. It was going to be great.
I forgot it. Because I didn't write it down.
So in the absence of a funny, substantial post filled with misdirection and simile please imagine something clever involving Dr. Doom.
