A Frank Angle

How’s your week going?

Hot and muggy is still in the Ohio Valley, and will be for a few more days. Needless to say, it was hot playing golf today, but I keep my fluids up for my mediocre golf scores. I hope my consistency returns!

Below is your mid-week dose of satire. Any favorites? For those desiring a challenge, make your own combination by using the information in the headlines. My combo is at the end.

FYI: I hope to announce (on Friday) the next act of Time: The Musical. Meanwhile, have a good rest of the week.

It has been a whirlwind couple of months for me. I am definitely living an entirely new life, and it is quite the crazy adventure I am embarking on!

I am happy. 
Very happy.
And my life, at this moment, is more than I ever dreamed it could be.
I wake up in the morning with a huge smile on my face
and spend the day wrapped up in this new happiness
i am allowing myself to be completely happy, for the first time in my life,
and no one is going to rain on my parade

And it is all because of this sweet boy, the new love in my life.

A Word in Your Ear



Kapas Island in Malaysia is slightly off the tourist trail  – Redang often being the preferred destination for backpackers.   The island is supposed to be a national park and therefore there are at least 3 long sandy beaches that have not been built upon.  When snorkelling between Kapas and Gem Islands one can often see   turtles, sharks, lots of fish but unfortunately not a lot of coral.  It is a quiet place during the week, weekends though are different as many Malyasians come for the weekend to camp and the sea is full of splashing bodies.   Having stayed on the island before we decided to head to one of the quieter beaches and stay at Quimis.




Our cabin was set back into the jungle off the beach at Quimis Private Resort.   The room was shabby but large and the shower room was fashioned out…

Hello Thomas Pynchon. It’s been awhile.

I read The Crying of Lot 49 back in college, but that was many, many years ago—back when you could ride on airplanes without having to take off your shoes in the security line.

I’m looking forward to reading this one again, as I remember it to be a clever novel. I loved Pynchon’s style. Plus, The Crying Of Lot 49 is very short—only 150 pages!

The story couldn’t seem more boring—it’s about an old rivalry between two mail carriers. But that’s the beauty of this novella.
