This cartoon depicts something I find so annoying it’s sad rather than funny. A rather nasty variation of this creative forgetfulness happens to me a lot whenever I need to write (or design, or code, or edit) something difficult: I’m in the shower and I feel I come up with entire paragraphs of articulate, efficient wonderfulness, but then I sit down and it feels stilted, cumbersome and inadequate. The worst part is I have no idea if my thinking in the shower was rubbish to begin with and couldnt stand the test of being commited to physical existence, or if indeed I did forget it.

Perhaps I need a waterproof voice recorder. (via Inky)
