It could be generalized anxiety. It could be sleeping patterns. It could be too much time staring at the monitor. For sure it is hearing words such as interface, cyclops, or Pavlov’s Dog that causes a distinct twitch to my eyelids.
Writing about them is causing both eyelids to twitch at repetitive intervals. If it were translated to music, I am sure it would have been a craze in the techno era of the 80s. (There I go Dating Myself So You Don’t Have To).
I may be onto something because already I feel a newfound sense of creative wonder at work. It’s as if the group Devo donned their ridiculous red caps to perform another irritatingly catchy tune. (My apologies in advance if by somehow throwing this out into the universe comes back as a Devo-Esque revival.) For those with the great fortunate of never having heard Devo, I give you this.
I have never doubted I am a nerd, but my nerdiness leans toward creativity with reading, writing, and photography as my tendencies. My pinkies are set too far down on my hand to play an instrument without causing screeches comparable to a screeching monkey. It sounds a little like this sans the happier sounding tones at the end.
Something else that makes my eye twitch is second guessing myself. (For those overly confident types, please quit hogging it all. Jeesh! Spread the love, will ya?!) If second guessing myself was a field of study, I would have a doctorate and likely be sitting next to Stephen Hawking.
(If I were sitting next to Stephen Hawking, the only thing I would think to say is that I love the movie [The Theory of Everything] which is saying I love his life story. We should all be so lucky).
All I really know is that my eyes are twitching and it is likely from too much time staring at this fine monitor. It is time to give these eyes a rest, but I wanted to send a Saturday Night Snarks out into the blogosphere before another Saturday passed by. For more Saturday Night Snarks check out this or this.
Let the snark be with you!
