Areas of Unrest
18 January 2004 - Just a Few Things
I've got too much to do and it's too late for me to write much of an entry. But, I did manage to get the Vietnam travelogue finished. And there are just a few quick things I wanted to mention.
- I forgot to mention Tug McGraw's death last week. That's a sure sign I really was under the weather. He was probably not all that great a baseball player, but he was one of the first relief pitchers to get really famous. What I'll always remember him for, of course, is the phrase "you gotta believe." That was the mantra of the 1969 Mets, the year they lost last place.
- My mother's 70th birthday was Monday. I sent off a gift, but still need a bigger celebration. I'll probably take her to see Wonderful Town on Broadway in the spring.
- Speaking of Broadway, I plan to buy tickets to see the revival of Sondheim's Assassins the day they go on sale.
- And speaking of tickets, I need to get to arranging the air part of my next vacation.
- I am in the midst of my annual file drawer cleanout. I really enjoy shredding things. I'd like to understand just what it is that makes turning paper into confetti so satisfying. Does this say something really nasty about me?
- I'm sure there were other things I was planning to mention, but they've slipped my mind. Maybe I'll be more rational next week.
