Okay, once I start posting 2am rants about politics, it’s clearly time to pause for a deep breath and talk about something else for awhile.
Spindle? Chugging along quite nicely. We hit 15,000 page views on Sunday and today’s update concludes the “official” launch. Now I have to start working on February’s content, including a new Notable New Yorker interview.
Writing? Haven’t written anything new in a few weeks (the random villanelle doesn’t count) and have to put together at least one submission before the end of the month. Read “A Change in Direction” last night in the open mic.
Reading? I’m juggling a couple of books right now: The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama and Hundred in the Hand by Joseph M. Marshall III.
Watching? Probably not the Giants vs. Patriots as I could not possibly be less interested in that matchup of two teams I don’t like. My intense hatred of the Patriots far exceeds my relatively mild dislike of Eli Manning, Michael Strahan and Tom Coughlin, though, so I guess I’ll be a Giants fan for one Sunday, assuming I bother to watch the game.
