  • Dream up an idea that is bigger than the spot in your brain that contains it.
  • Transfer the idea from your brain to your heart.
  • Knead idea with the milkblood of your heart.
  • Push the idea out of your heart and into the highways and byways of your veins.
  • Allow the idea to float through your body for as long as you can contain the excitement.
  • When exhausted from the anticipation of giving birth to the idea, allow it to float to the ends of your arms and down into your fingers.
  • Send the idea through the ends of your finger tips down into your keyboard.
  • Watch the idea come to life on the computer screen in front of you.
  • Be amazed! You are creator.
  • Once idea has been fully purged, type THE END into the same keyboard you allowed the idea to escape into.
  • Sit back and be well pleased with yourself.

Enjoy some SHADOW STABBING from Cake. (-:
