Friday, May 21, 2004


I received five emails yesterday from people who thought my blog made no sense. I was so moved that I asked my colleague to please read it. He never mentioned it, so I don't know if he ran out of time, or thought it was such nonsense he was too embarrassed to talk about it.

The emails all said basically the same thing: I was covering too many issues in too little space. I should have written about the American prison system, or George Bush's record for executing his fellow citizens, or the prison scandal in Iraq; but, that by trying to connect all three made it impossible to discern any point to the article at all.

Hmmmmmmmm! Maybe I shouldn't write political commentary at 7:30 A.M.!

Irrespective of all that . . . today is Friday and for that I am grateful.

Friday is the sixth day of the week, and is named for Frigu, the goddess of marriage and the wife of Odin.

For many people Friday is pay day! For me, alternating Fridays are pay days and this Friday is the wrong Friday for that!

Monday and Friday are my favorite days of the week.

Do you have any weekend plans?

Hey Dick Mac!

My favourite days are the days when I wake up and feel totally pumped! :) Usually its Friday but y'see, I have a really early lecture on Fridays and so its horrible getting out of bed! But the day is short and so I look forward to coming home and kicking my socks off. Then there's Saturday. That's one of my fave days too. I don't particularly enjoy Sundays. Thursdays are exciting. I'm usually pumped on Thursdays.

Today is a fantastic Friday. If you go to my blog, you'll see. I worship 2 people in music. One of course is David Bowie, but the other is John Frusciante - the lead guitarist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and solo artist. Anyways, yeah, there's a lot to be excited about in that area for me ;)...

Hope you're having a great Friday.

BTW. You're gonna have to choose me a blog to read! :) :)

Hi there DM,

It's been a crazy week, and my grassroots organizing culminated in an request to be interviewed by the Today Show. Which had to decline at the request of my employer. Damn these organizational ties that bind me.

We don't all always make sense. The important thing is to keep speaking until we do.

Looking forward to more Charlotte news!
