The week ahead
TODAY: I was hoping to have a hard copy of that “USA Today” article by now, but no, the US Postal Service apparently needs more than three days to deliver an envelope three-quarters of a mile. Meanwhile, I’m feeling guilty about not working on my book proposal and getting ready to go out and buy a new shower curtain and bath mat. I’m also eating leftover Thai food, and my girlfriend just said, “Haha, you’re eating vegan food, and you’re gonna say how good it is.” Yeah, it IS pretty good, but it’d even better if there were chunks of dead animal flesh.
TOMORROW: Waking up at 9am to catch a 10am bus from the Port Authority to my friends’ baseball camp in Milford, PA. I hope it doesn’t rain because I really want to put on a hitting display for the kids. I hope my friends take pictures and then email them to me in a timely fashion so I can share the experience here.
WEDNESDAY: Interview (via telephone) with talkSPORT Radio in London at 10:20am ET, followed by another phoner with WGIR in Manchester, NH. Then, if I’ve heard back from a certain Comcast SportsNet producer and he wants to film me at Citizens Bank Park, I’ll go. Otherwise, I might stay home and work on the book proposal. Or go to Shea. Or do both. Or neither. I hope it doesn’t rain.
THURSDAY: TV interview with KTVU/Channel 2 News at 11:45am. They’re in Oakland and have a studio in NYC. It’s going to be live, which means it should air at 8:45am on the West Coast. Then I might go to Shea. Depends on the weather (I hope it doesn’t rain) and if I was there the day before. I don’t think I can handle two Mets games in two days. Too stressful.
FRIDAY: More work on the book proposal. Radio interview at 7:20pm. I forget which station. They’re out in Las Vegas, I think. Doesn’t matter. I’ll just wait for the phone to ring. Possible visit from my friend Darren who’s slowly fixing my Arkanoid machine.
SATURDAY: Going to the Hamptons with Jona (the girlfriend) to see a performance by Ronald K. Brown Dance Company. (Who?!)
SUNDAY: Writing group meeting in Central Park. I hope it doesn’t rain.
