It's hard to blog when... (2)

Back to trying to clear out the Draft posts, and I came across a draft with the name "It's hard to blog when..." The original talked about the logistics of typing with a puppy next to you in a chair. (You can read it all here.)

When I saw it, though, I started to think of things that could make it hard to blog. These were my first thoughts: 

It's hard to blog when...

...your laptop is frozen in a block of ice. elephant has snuck into your house and played hours of Words With Friends on your laptop without ever plugging in your power cord. 

...your Internet has been hacked by the feral cat down the alley, and you can only get "cats playing piano" videos on your screen.

...your fingers are just one key over on the keyboard, resulting in words like "n;phhomh" when you want to type "blogging."'re eating peanut butter dipped in Nestle Quik off of a spoon and trying not to get it on the keys. 

...gravity is inverted and everything floats to the ceiling.

And, of course, it's hard to blog when...'re sitting on the couch and your partner is at the other end and the puppy is snuggled up against your arm between the two of you on one of the coldest nights of the year trying to stay warm. 

Yeah, the last of those is probably the most probable. Although I'd be lying if I didn't say that the Nestle Quik one runs a close second on warmer evenings.
