Any Suggestions?

1. What's it like being very tall?

2. Your bucket list.

3. If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? (You're old enough to remember the source of that question).

4. The times in your life you've cried.

5. Blogging peeves (besides having nothing to write about).

Elizabeth said...

Who's your favorite musician?

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

Maybe you need a guest blogger. Just sayin'.....

Ed (zoesdad) said...

Oh, this is bad! Sometimes a total mind purge of just tidbits and incoherent ramblings helps.

Someone sent me a link to a random idea generator once. It was kind of cool. I lost it though. That's not much help to you now is it?

Dorky Dad said...

I'll give you one ... as soon as I think of one myself.

Dang my brain is empty these days ...

Heather said...

If I give you my ideas then what would I write about?

Jeff said...

kathy - Thanks Kathy... those will come in very handy!

elizabeth - You mean besides myself? (har har)

prefers - Are you volunteering? Because have at it baby!

ed - Can you believe it? I'm even out of tidbits!

dorky dad - I think it's this time of year. Winter just kind of saps the creative matter out of our brains after a while around here.

heather - Then you have to ask other people for ideas for yourself. Sort of like a play it backward kind of thing.

Idaho Dad said...

When my family comes to visit you this summer, what are we going to do?

Theresa B said...

Well, here's what my next one will be: Junk in the Trunk, ie, all the weird crap I took out of the Honda's trunk over the weekend (to make room for all the other weird crap that went into the trunk).

I figure nobody else could possibly have had a takoyaki pan in their trunk, so it will be a very different post...

Mom Thumb said...

Ah, perhaps I would not have a dearth of readers if I did not have a dearth of blog post ideas. The day you'd sell your soul for a blog post idea, souls are a glut. Write more about winter. Us 'southerners' like to live vicariously.

Sarah said...

this crazy warm weather for minnesota, I wore flip flops yesterday.

Gette said...

Ed's onto something--just google up "writing prompts." You have to sort through some schlock, but there are a few gems out there...

Gette said...

Also, I put a skribit widget on my site, but no-one used it. You get more traffic, though, so it might work.

Jaffer said...

Switch from Blogspot to anything else !

By the way, how tall are you Jeff ?

Bill said...

How about cooking for Waylon Jennings, Mollies Massage, and the unexpected croud of theater goers? You also have road experiences, equipment stolen, breakdowns, motor troubles etc.

Jeff said...

Really? That would be way cool! There's not much to do here in St. Cloud (yet), but Mpls is only an hour away and there's tons to do down there. So just say the word and I'll set you up with a good ol' time!

theresa b - That would make a great meme. Everyone just open their trunks and take a picture as is. I'm afraid what mine would look like.

mom thumb - Sure. How about... "We're expecting 4-6 inches of snow tomorrow." I hope you vicariously enjoy that because I won't.

sarah - It WAS unusually warm here yesterday. Sorry to see your blog is gone :-(

gette - Are you kidding... schlock is exactly what I'm looking for. You know me better than that.

jaffer - Blogspot's not so bad. Especially if you have no template such as myself. I'm not really that tall (6'4") but I'm definitely above average.

bill - If you're suggesting that I've cooked for Waylon Jennings or been to a "Mollies Massage" parlor you're going to have to enlighten me, because I sure don't remember doing those things. Although the 80s was a long decade so anything's possible.

VE said...

- Your top 10 worst road trip gigs

- Jeff's evolution into geekdome

- What's really going on under the clouds on Venus

- Jeff's impersonations of a sampling of his readers

Bill said...

Waylon came into Antons and asked where he could get a sauna. Mark had been to Mollies Massage Parlor, which you recommended at 14dollars a pop. He said, "Whew that must be some sauna". [That ruined that story.} The resturant filled up with people on a slow night, remember?

Jeff said...

ve - Great suggestions. Especially the one where I do my impersonation of you ;-)

bill - Wow, I completely forgot about that one. I suppose it helps to actually remember the events if you're going to write about them. I wonder if I knew that Waylon was looking for more than just a sauna?

Jacki said...

Yeah, I'd love to hear about your worst road gigs. I am sure you've got some stories.

Any groupies?

Underwear thrown at you while on stage?

Jeff said...

jacki - Yes. And I can mail them back to you if you need them.

Babs (Beetle) said...

Do you think, if I asked the same question, I'd get lots of helpful ideas? I could do with some :O)

Roger said...

My brain is such an empty mess, that I am so regretting trying to post every.single.day. Even I don't find myself THAT entertaining. Hence videos and pictures. :)

Maybe a meme.

More Diary action.

Favorite SNL character and why.

Your platform for the empty Senate seat in MN.

More pictures of Paul Bunyan.

Names of all 1,000 lakes, and how they got them...

I might have to use some of those. Great idea, getting us to brainstorm for you.

By the way, I TOTALLY LOVE THIS POST! (no, I don't know why, just that it made my day.)

Grant Miller said...

I've been waiting to take over your blog for months!!!

Jeff said...

babs - Yes I do! Bloggers are very eager to help out their friends in times of distress.

roger - Thanks for the ideas. I've gotten enough stuff now to get me through 2 or 3 posts. Yay! BTW... we've got 10 THOUSAND lakes here, not just 1,000 so it's going to be a little hard to list them all ;-)

grant miller - Is this like some kind of corporate buy-out where you take over while my stock value is low? Ummm... we may be able to make a deal.

Bill said...

I like the diary idea. Seems I remember when you took out a morticians daughter, and he insisted on showing his business. I think it was a threat. Then there was the rich girl from Palm Springs that sent you airplane tickets. Her father suggested you use the return trip pronto. Seems fathers think on the road, broke, long haired piano players are not husband material. I wonder if he still has his electronic busisness, or did he belly up?

My suggestion is to not take any suggestions!
