Sunny and cool
I didn’t sleep well last night, so I’m not at my best today, which does not bode well for the show. I can’t go on the computer before I try to sleep – too much running around my mind.
Worked on The Other Project yesterday and did a bunch of hockey research. The WHA2 website is “temporarily offline”, which is interesting, and all I could find for the Federal Hockey League was a message board, but not their home page. Early in the year, both had decent web presences. So I’m wondering if they’re not doing as well as they hoped (you think?).
Saw the Hartford Wolfpack vs. Philadelphia Phantoms (Hartford won). I hadn’t realized how desperate I was for a hockey fix.
Since my information requests haven’t been answered, I need to reslant the hockey article. Which is fine, but I’m late for the deadline and it will probably go up next week instead of this one.
Worked on a couple of proposals, spent more time than I meant to working on a brochure, did some organizing work, switched the slipcovers on the living room furniture from the summer cottons to the winter fleeces. And feel like I lost too much of the day.
I tried a fantastic new recipe last night, from Brooke Dojny’s The New England Cookbook. It’s chicken and sage in a cranberry-vinegar sauce. And it is amazing. It’s pleasantly tart without being sour. I didn’t completely stick to the recipe, but it worked anyway. That’s one to get copied in the recipe book I carry with me when I travel. I also created a tuna salad with olives and Asian chili-garlic paste for lunch that was pretty good. I have to write it down before I forget it.
I have to send off hard copies of articles that were e-mailed a few weeks ago, but they need the hard copies as well.
I wanted to get some writing done this morning before I have to catch the train for the show call, but I don’t know how much I can do. I’m feeling a real time crunch, probably more so because I’m overtired and everything takes longer than it should.
The good news is that I’ll be one of the Assistant Editors for the new KIC magazine, editing two of the sections. I’m looking forward to it.
Hopefully I can get some writing done on the train, and I won’t be too tired when I get home, so I can do a little more tonight. I have four days of theatre work next week, so I have to be very, very organized. And work through any fatigue I feel.
