morning babble / Sunday 08-15-21
I haven’t run yet. I slept in. It felt good. #227 will occur out there though. 5K every day. Also, just a reminder that I’ll be doing the 5K run for the St. Jude Walk/Run in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 25th. On the team – XTU to the Maxx – that’s with Charlie Maxx who you can hear middays on 92.5 XTU. Go get your country on – they had a huge concert last night, so things are probably a little quiet today for country fans in Philly.
Countdown to 15,000 words – I’m not jinxing myself, but I did write last night. Not enough, but something happened. Again, this is to help push me get a chunk of the book that I want to write – done. FYI – it’s tentatively titled: Confessions of a Workaholic
- The Code Breaker by Walter Isaacson (listening to this one) I feel bad, but the Intro is read by Walter who had a whistling “S” for a couple minutes. I thought – this isn’t going to be good. They must have made an adjustment because it was gone by the end of the intro and I do like the author’s voice. I’ve heard him on numerous podcast and never heard that “S” before. From there, it’s a female narrator, who I am enjoying hear.
- Still slowly reading Eat A Peach – A Memoir by David Chang. Like – I’m savoring every page. A couple are read and I’m finding myself marking it up everywhere. It’s good. Here’s a quote from page 52 – “The paradox for the workaholic is that rock bottom is the top of whatever profession they’re in.”
- Leadership in Turbulent Times by Doris Kearns Goodwin – it’s there. I really do enjoy it, but I have to pause on something.
- And finally comics. Today, I’m hoping to sit back and read issue #3 of Marjorie Finnegan from Garth Ennis. Who also does Batman Reptilian and The Boys. The other day I was in Captain Blue Hen Comics to pick up an issue of My Little Pony Friendship – yeah, I was standing there with my son who obviously felt nervous about them thinking that it was for him. So, he kept mentioning his sister and how happy she will be to pick it up. I had misread an email though and the issue is coming. Not here yet though. Captain Blue Hen Comics thinks I’m pumped for some My Little Pony comics now.
