notes on government, sports and popular culture

Monday, May 23, 2005

I know you guys are tired of reading this, but I'm still struggling with a tight schedule. But it's let up a bit, so I hopefully am primed for more regular posts. It's felt good to focus on more peaceful pursuits such as gardening and lawn-cutting instead of banging my head against the wall over the doings of our local governments, not to mention the editorials of our paper of record.

Something else: I've taken a part-time job loading trucks with a local package delivery company that shall remain nameless. It's only 4-5 hours per day, but the combination of print freelance work ( which was going well a couple of weeks ago), various family activities and the resultant fatigue from physical labor left me little time for blogging.

One piece of advice: When you ship something, wrap it tight, with lots of padding. The chances of it being dropped, stepped on or slammed against the wall of a truck (with the loader shouting "Scan, you whore!") are good.
