Enn (then) ui Did This

There has been a lot of talk of blogging ennui of late here here and here especially. I found this picture today while actually searching for a person believe it or not. I guess this is what non-bloggers do in their spare time? It is a penny pyramid. A pyramid. Made out of pennies. Pennies painstakingly piled up to form a perfect pyramid. I have to say that would send my ocd tendencies raging. Quite frankly I would rather be blogging about drivel than aligning the 8,500th penny stack while straining my elasticated waistband crimplene trousers. For some reason I assume people who make pyramids out of pennies wear hideous man-made fibre garments. Think of the static with that Axminster. Ouch!

Bored? At a loose end - just go here - drivetime ennui chez Rockmother .

What person? Was her name Penny, maybe?

I like the way you sneaked in your new podcast - almost missed it there.

Hurrah! New music! I raise a slice of coconut cake to you, my dear.

Annie's Got A New T-shirt - oh - that would be telling. It is a new podcast - well, not that new - I did it about 10 days ago. Now I'm losing my marbles - no - it's not new - the german song scared you remember? I was just shamlessly promoting myself in the name of ennui x

I don't know, I rather like the penny pyramid, even the name resounds like a mantra:
"A penny pyramid painstakingly piled"
The ennui mantra
"Let's talk it out across the table
Make sure that we leave nothin' out
Get into it like a meditation
Start checkin' it out
Takin' it further
Takin' it further
Checkin' it out."

If they presented that as modern art they'd be coining it in.

I've noticed a few other bloggers to posting similar blogger fatigue/erraticism posts.

Me, I can't switch off. I wish I could, but my brains like a Pop-A-Point pencil. Everytime a blog bits done and dusted some other piece of puffery pops out ready to stick in my cyberspace scrapbook .

Momo Madster - aaah..lovely Van - from one of my favourite albums..

Checkin it out, now baby
Checkin it out checkin it out
You meditate, you meditate
You meditate
And you come back
You come back

Geoffster - yes - they would be raking it in like one of those big machines you see at the seaside!

Planet Mondo Bongo - Pop A Point pencil - that was such a good invention - I might have to blog about it - you see - more puffery everywhere!

I just want to push the pennies on the floor. Nihilism rules.

No OCD for me.

Apart from I can't wear an un-ironed shirt and... No. That's about it. Phew.

Now that's what I call ennui. Makes mine look like blogger's itch.

L E B - I agree - anarchy in the suburbs - I would like to jump onto the penny pyramid and revel in all the tinkling noise it would make as it collapsed - after I had aligned them all properly as some of them aren't quite right if you ask me.

Dickley - yes - blogczema x

I'd rather pile up the pennies in a savings account to earn some interest.
