Random musings on a writer's life & times, with occasional input from acquaintances

The Sunday Seven. Once more, with feeling.
1) What are you wearing?
White t-shirt with logo from the Fall 5-K Challenge, a footrace I actually won a few years ago (it was a stormy day and no other male contestants showed up!); ragged blue jeans; white Nike sox with orange heels and toes.
2) What are you reading?
“Capote: A Biography,” by Gerald Clarke. It’s the life story of writer/society weirdo/gay icon Truman Capote. What a strange fellow he was.
3) What’s for dinner?
Bratwurst on the barbecue.
4) What’s the best thing that happened this week?
My wife and I participated last night in the 25th annual Starlight Run, a 5-kilometer jog through the streets of downtown Portland held as a preliminary to the annual Rose Festival Starlight Parade. Hundreds of folks, many of them in costumes (Sponge Bob Squarepants, anyone?) ran the parade route while thousands lined the curbs cheering. Quite a rush! Cookie Jean and I didn’t wear costumes, although I threatened to get nekkid and run as Lord Godiva.
5) What’s bugging you?
Writer’s block. Like Oliver Hardy, I have nothing to say.
6) Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?
7) What’s it all about, Dave?
If I knew, I’d tell you. But I don’t, so I won’t.
