I thought I’d try something different this week, and serve you up something positive to go with your Monday morning coffee.
I’m not saying it’s going to be a regular change, but I’ll give it a shot…
One positive thing about this week is that it is a short one in terms of work. I will only be chained to my desk for two and a half days, with early parole on Wednesday.
The Nite Show tapes on Wednesday, so I’m out early that day for the taping, and then I’m taking my usual Writer’s Day Holiday on Thursday. This time around, I’m also taking a vacation day on Friday. Should be a nice mini vacation.
Since the show tapes on Wednesday, I have been in full Writer’s Mode, cranking out monologue jokes. I have already submitted batches for the first two shows, and plan to tackle the third one tonight. Then, I can go back and take another pass at all three.
It was a great weekend because my beloved Yankees took two out of three from their crosstown rivals in the Subway Series. After a very slow start, the Bronx Bombers have won 8 out of their last 10 games, knocking off the mighty Mets and Tigers in the process.
I’ve always considered paying for the MLB Extra Innings package on my cable, but between ESPN, MLB Network, Fox Sports, and NESN, I have been able to watch almost every Yankees game this season on my regular cable package.
I also spent a lot of time this weekend mentally outlining a new story idea. I’m not one for typing outlines, but I do like to work things out in my head a little before I start putting words to paper.
This would be the book I’ve wanted to write based upon the blog. I’ve had a few ideas scampering about in my head for a while, but it really seems to be coming together now. It’s always exciting when I can find ways to bring together several snippets of ideas, and link them into a story chain strong enough to support an entire project.
I’ll keep you updated on this one, as I’m hoping there will be some interest from my loyal blog followers for this book.
That’s about it for now. The coffee is ready, so stop by The House on the Hill any time to have a cup. I saw Seamus running around the house earlier, and Waltzing Matilda said something about stopping by this afternoon to say hello.
Mingle with your fellow bloggers, enjoy the java, and do your best to get through another Monday. Remember, there’s only 17 hours left, so the day is practically over.
UGH! It wouldn’t be a real Coffee Club post without at least one of those, right?
