I am on my way to the doctor this morning for a scheduled check up. I will bore him with stories of my latest stomach problems, and spare you, gentle reader. We are supposed to have a snow storm hereabouts this afternoon into evening. I am hoping to complete a start-to-finish draft of my essay by New Year's Day (with timeouts for the New England-NY Giants game and the U. Michigan-Florida game).
After I have a complete draft, I'll go back and figure out what I actually meant to say.
The daily book reviewers (Maslin, Grimes, Kakutani) published their annual "Ten Best" lists in today's New York Times. The only one listed that I've read is I'll Sleep When I'm Dead: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon by Crystal Zevon, the singer's ex-wife.
If you like(d) Warren Zevon, it's a sad and eye-opening book.
