This Post Brought to You by the Letter Q

OK, seriously, my brain is beyond fried. I have an addiction to those PennyPress puzzle books that you find at the checkout counter at the dollar store. I can't just do one puzzle and then walk away. Why work just one when I can work twelve in a row? But evidently it's having a negative effect on me.

I was working a crossword puzzle the other night and came across the clue "stuff candles are made of. " Three letters, ends in "x." Hmmmmm, "melty stuff?" Really, I was sitting there trying to remember what candles are made out of! It took me a couple of minutes, but I started mentally freaking out because I had lost such a simple word in my brain. (And if you haven't figured it out, it's "wax.") I think I might have to dial back on the puzzles. I can come up with answers to the New York Times crossword, but I can't seem to handle a simple Pat Sajack one without losing my mind.

And today's cliche is: "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." (It was the only one I could think of.)

  1. Wait until you forget your own frigging name. I haven't done that yet, but I'm sure it is just a matter of time. Sometimes I can see the brain cells just floating away.
