The gift of a good book

I ran into my creative writing teacher from high school, Mrs. Horton, at Omega Books a while back. She remembered me, which was nice, especially since I was only at McIntosh for six months before graduating, and said she saw my writing in the paper over the years.

Things I will keep

That’s a Guided by Voices song. I saw them at The Cotton Club (remember that place?) in Atlanta a long time ago with my friends John Thompson and Lindsay Bianchi. Lindsay was an editor for this section more than a few years back. He passed away the other day and he will be missed.

The other story

In a recent column I talked about playing games with my five year old son. In the column I mentioned my daughter and stated she was another story. She is. And that is an understatement.

Getting down

My son, Colin, is five years old. Like every other kindergartner I’ve met, he is constantly fidgeting, incessantly talking (or, more likely, just making noise to hear himself) and he always wants to play.

They screamed for ice cream

Well, I don’t scream about ice cream, but the contestants on the new season of “The Apprentice” do. The task for the men (Octane) and the women (Fortitude) on the second episode of “The Apprentice” was to sell as much ice cream as they could from an ice cream cart in Manhattan in two days.

It's what inside that counts

Remember my last column where I urged everybody to give running a try and was real gung-ho about it? I’m still gung-ho, but I need to be forthcoming about something. After the 5K race, which I ran in light athletic sneakers from a big box (big mistake), I felt fine. For about four hours.
