Free Association

I don't know if it's because I'm bored, sick or both, but I am in the mood for some randomness. One of the funniest things I've seen on someone's blog was Blam's free association in connection to Lost. http://blamken.blogspot.com/2009/04/norse-code.html

So I decided to do one of my own. It has nothing to do with anything. Just for fun. So let's see where I can get in 20 jumps. I only took one dose of NyQuil. Honest.

I will start by closing my eyes and typing something into the search engine.

1. F

2. Fandango

3. Movies

4. Luuuucy!!!!!
5. Lucy and Linus
6. Peanuts 7. Elephant 8. Mouse (someone please tell me where the idea that elephants are afraid of mice came from?)9. Wireless 10. Cell Phone (whoa! I had no idea something like this existed! What on earth?! It's called "cellphone with security") 11. Security 12. Yeoman Warder

13. Facebook (this may seem like a strange jump, but when my sister and I visited the Tower of London, our Yeoman Warder tour guide was hysterical and at one point [to make a long story short] stated that he was on Facebook.)

14. College (when I started my Facebook account)
15. Study (cause I was one of those weird college people that actually went to school to learn and, even worse, actually liked writing papers and doing research) 16. Clue 17. Mustard (sweet muffins! I'm getting my dad this grill cover for Father's Day!)
18. Duncan the Donut (from The Donut Man - ah childhood memories. He did a skit dressed up as a mustard tree) 19. Holes 20. Shia LaBeouf
Well, that was interesting. And random. But I ended with one of my favorite actors and it also brought me full circle because his name ends with the letter "F"! Woot!

I have a feeling I'm gonna start using "Sweet muffins!" We'll see what kind of response (and how many slaps) that gets me. Anyway, I'm always glad to be of inspiration, although, not that there's any right or wrong way to do this, I did all the free association in my head and Googled some appropriate images later. Maybe when the new season of Lost rolls around we should gather up a few folks, look at the episode titles, and give ourselves each X jumps to see where they take us, then compare notes. I know they've already released some titles, but I'm not really paying attention yet as it would just remind me of my lack of participation in the Rewatch.

I must honestly admit that all kudos for the phrase "Sweet Muffins!" must go to my sister. She started using it, I picked it up, we'll see how far we can spread it in our little corner of the universe :)

And I did a combination of free association in my head and Google. Some of the pictures that came up were way too hysterical not to use (please tell me how on earth you would use that "gun with security". I wouldn't want to hold that thing up to my head every time I had to call home!)

And I think some sort of free association in combination with other Lost geeks would be quite fun :)

The rewatch has been quite interesting, but seriously, you need to get yourself over there for this "guess the title of the last Lost episode". It's the best thing going right now.

Sweet muffins, this comment is getting as long as a post!

YES! Spread the disease of Sweet Muffins! I mean... whoa, I have decided I should not comment when my brain is halfway in a Psych text book.

Oh! That cell phone thing was ridiculously ridiculous. This was a most hysterical post.
