verb, to mindputter: thinking, but thinking like a punchy, unreliable, two-cylinder engine of some re-repaired old moped trying to tow a topic or subject for which an eight cylinder truck might be necessary.
noun, mindputterings: the result of such an effort. The disorganized disconnected drivel one writes in a notebook and shows to no one, or at other times, puts on a blog. The rabbit pellet of thought: numerous, omnipresent, nutritionless, benign. Very much the result of free association, or stream of consciousness. Definitely related to surrealist automatism, but mindputterers take themselves in no way so seriously.
