On the Contemplation of a Watermelon Caipirinha and a Brioche Recipe I Do Not Have Time to Make

I have been so busy starting up my new gig that I have been unable to post. My thoughts are always elsewhere. Sometimes on a morsel of a larger fiction that I am contemplating; or, in joyous spurts, the fiction of my life; or, when I am feeling a little overwhelmed or just down, the realities of my life, which glare at me from every window of the 5 train. They mingle in the sunlight when I am above ground.

Funny, all thoughts abandon me at the Gunhill station as I make my way to Bainbridge.

Now, the reality of life is rising at 4:30 am to be at work by 8:00 am. We won't even talk about night school and the second job.

So, again I am forced to give a video. A favorite. It is from the Geiko commercial. I think the band is from Norway. I got a post today by the way from a friend who is a music producer. He is working in Sweden for a month.

That will be me again.


One day soon.

Till then.

Labor Day Weekend

I have to work this weekend. But there are parties on the horizon (Labor Day Weekend is the second New Year's Eve Party for those in academia), plus a Harlem apartment is in my sights. I guess the Bronx will have to wait for now.

But I found this article in The New York Times today. I guess Condoleeza Rice and Peas will have to look for a position elsewhere after her tenure as Secretary of State is up. Maybe she could do the MLA Conference in November.

"Reading Bush Foreign Policy as Post-Post Modern Literature"

What other courses could she teach?
